Black Lives Matter Co-Founder: Trump Administration’s Haiti Emails Perpetuate the Myth of the ‘Black Criminal’

Black immigrants are once again in the cross-hairs of the federal government’s racist and xenophobic immigration policies. Last week, via e-mails uncovered by the Associated Press, we learned that the Trump Administration is considering ending a detrimental humanitarian protection afforded thousands of Haitian immigrants, based on a ubiquitous, racist stereotype of Black migrants in particular — the myth of the Black criminal.

The National Black Church Initiative Calls on the American Red Cross to Pay For the Damage of Hurricane Matthew to Haiti Since They Reportedly Stole Millions In Haiti Earthquake Donations Years Ago

nbci-logo2010-300x200

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, calls on the American Red Cross to pay for the damages of hurricane Matthew on behalf of all Haitian citizens given their past sins of over half a billion dollars during the historic earthquake in Haiti. Haiti has lost around 800 citizens and the American Red Cross should step up and do the right thing and at least give Haiti one billion dollars in cash.

Chelsea Clinton will visit Haiti on July 28-29 in the capacity of vice president of the Clinton Foundation, which is carrying out aid projects in the impoverished Caribbean nation.

Clinton, the foundation announced Tuesday in a statement, will travel to Haiti with foundation president Donna Shalala, and the pair will head a group comprised of philanthropists, businessmen and foundation donors who will visit the different aid and development projects being undertaken there.

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is also scheduled to participate in a round table on the need to increase business opportunities for female teens and women, the Clinton Foundation said.

Since 2010, the foundation has collected $30 million for projects and is helping in Haiti’s recovery after the earthquake that devastated the country in that year, killing more than 200,000 people and injuring some 300,000.

Today, the Clinton Foundation is focusing on fostering sustainable economic growth in Haiti in sectors such as tourism, energy and manufacturing.
