Because Haiti has a different racial context. Being seen as an African in Haiti is not a good thing.hen I went to Haiti the black people there didn't want to be called Africans and those that moved to the US did not want to be called "African Americans."
I wonder why... maybe because African-American isn't about an African who becomes an American?I have friends who were born in Egypt that applied for African American scholarships. One actually got it but then had the funds removed when they realized he was of Arab decent even though he was born in Africa in Egypt.
Says who? The white boy who doesn't know why blacks in the US refer to themselves as African American to begin with?African American should not be used as a term to denote race or ethnicity.
Your post is riddled with so much general ignorance it's actually useless to try and school you on the subject. Way beyond repair.
