This Is All About You

From Bob Lapierre

 Child, this is no secret, if you don't know your history, you will never know who you really are.

1492 was the infamous year when disasters stroke the Arrawakan Continent (Today, they call it : America) with the introduction of a Christian cross and thousands of Spaniards (Spanish soldiers) with swords, shields, armors, and a sadistic thirst for gold and conquest.  The Empire of the Arrawaks (Taïno, Mayan, Aztec, Incas), was entirely destroyed by the European invaders.   The Caraïb Nation was not exempted either from the Spaniards' total annihilation of the natives.  In 1503, Nicolas Ovando had the first Africans brought in to replace the vanishing First Ayitians.  History informed us that the conquistadors were sorry after all, because our African ancestors were not as easily to subdue as it was with the natives of Ayiti.  Thus, the African Slave Trade stopped for a while, but, following the intensely persistent and weighty recommendations of the devout Catholic priest, Bartholome de Las Casas to Charles-Quint (King of Spain), in 1517, the African Slave Trade resumed.

Through this canvas, the natives Colombo kidnapped and brought back with him to Spain can be seen.

1522 marked the earliest recorded broad insurrection of our ancestors that began with the Unknown Maroon who made the Spaniards feel remorseful, dealing with Africans in bondage.  The UM led the first general revolt in Hispaniola (The Spaniards had renamed Ayiti, the land of the Taïnos, Hispañola).  The revolt took place on the Don Diego Colombo's plantations (Diego was Christopher Colombo’s son).  History informed us that the Unknown Maroon even taught the natives the Mao-Mao warfare strategy, which Cacique Henry used against his former oppressors.  So unfortunate that Henry sold his mentors out in exchange for his freedom and a safe retreat for him and his people in Boya.

Senateur Emile Saint-Lot-1948
As a Representative of Ayiti to the United Nations, Mr. Saint-Lot took it upon himself, as his personal decision,
to give the critical vote, which allowed
countries such as
Israël, Libya, and Somalia
to accede to
their independence.
His choice cost him his tenure as an
Ambassador, for his verdict was self-willed against his own government’s political interest.
Mr. Saint-lot acted contrary to the expectations of the colonial powers such as France, England, Italy and others who opposed the creation of those states. Fortunately for them, the decisive vote rested in the hand of a scholar, a son of Dessalines, whose voting power went for the Liberation of all African People



 
Simon Bolivar (1816-1817)
freed his country and subsequently all South America with the uncontested help of the Ayitians. Alexandre Petion (Then president of the new Republic) supplied him with men, money, arms, ammunition and food. He did so with the mutual consent that slavery as a whole will be abolished wherever he is victorious throughout South America.
Bolivar kept his promise and rid
South America of European Slavery!




Those were also the days and the times when all countries desiring to cross the Atlantic Ocean in safety raised the Ayitian Flag for protection agaisnst
"All" types of sea bandits!

 
1503 - . . . .(?)
100,000,000 uprooted from Africa
25,000,000 drowned at sea
75,000,000 made it through
to built America and Europe's wealth
for free!

IF YOU CHOOSE TO FORGET,
IT IS YOUR RIGHT. 
BUT KEEP IN MIND,
HISTORY IS TO BE READ, STUDIED AND NOT AT ALL NEGLECTED, FOR
IN A QUANTUM OF YOUR NAIVETY AND CARELESSNESS, IT CAN RECUR.

Bob Lapierre

  • November 18, 1803, François Capois (a.k.a Capois Lamort) was not a super-hero of fiction, for his fiercest enemy, General Rochambeau (The most infamous, most notoriously sadistic war criminal in the history of African Slavery in America), had to stop the fighting to present him with his own sword in recognition of his historically unrivaled prowess. 
  • Emperor Jacques 1er (1804-1806), Jean-Jacques Dessalines the Great, was one other hero who may remain unparalleled in the history of our world as a war General.  .  That is who you are, offspring of real Heroes .  Be proud! -
