The gag is there wouldn’t have even been a Louisiana Purchase without Haiti. There would not have been a revival of the unique culture in Louisiana if not for Haitian immigrants resettling here because it was slowly dying out. New Orleans would have not been anything close to what is if not for the blending of Creole and Haitian culture. Many came here, led massive slave rebellions, and become state icons (i.e. Charles Deslondes). So y'all really have to read before you throw your diaspora hot takes out there.
