Haiti: Where did the money go?
Comments by Onitaset Kumat
Insomuch as I can encourage a European-made production, I encourage this one. I recently watched this documentary named “Where did the money go?” It is an expose of the faults of Occidental charity and Occidental hatefulness in Haiti.
For example, in one scene the narrator visits a popular restaurant among aid workers and looks at the menu, $72 wine and $34 steak, and scribblings, “We’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time.” The cameraperson records the European women tanning and drinking, which contrasts with the footage of African people starving, scavenging and suffering.
The expose at least reveals how little concern we in America have for the Haitians. At this film festival, as done by caribbeing, they showed another documentary for Haiti. This one showed Guadeloupe’s continued charity to Haiti. One participant of the film festival was a woman from Guadeloupe who had informed me that organizations in that country know better than to give to aid businesses and instead do for self–they monthly distribute food in Haiti.
I spoke with this woman feeling bad that 93% of American donations remain in the U.S., meaning what billions the United States collected remained in the United States. One European on the film aptly points out that services, accommodations and livelihood would be more plentiful and dispersed were American ‘selfishness’ not so total.
All in all, I can recommend the documentary. I intend to incorporate the above clip into a future television show. Tell me your opinion.
To wit, I noticed that Wyclef Jean is now being harassed over something so common in occidentalism . . ..
