❝ Most of Haitians live abroad, chiefly in North America: the Dominican Republic, United States, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Canada (primarily Montreal) and Bahamas. They also live in other countries like France, Jamaica, the French Antilles, the Turks and Caicos, Mexico, Virgin Islands, Brazil, and French Guiana, among others.
In the United States alone there are an estimated 975,000 people of Haitian ancestry, according to the 2010 Census; there is a Haitian community of about 200,000 in Canada and an estimated 500,000-800,000 in the Dominican Republic (Baez Evertsz and Lozano 2008). The Haitian community in France numbers about 90,000, and up to 80,000 Haitians now live in the Bahamas. ❞

❝ It is believed that the feeling of depression hits women the hardest. Women face almost twice the risk compared to men of having a major depressive disorder during their lifetimes.The reason for this greater risk is unclear, but a combination of biological, hormonal, genetic, psychological and social factors appear to play a role. ❞

❝ The Constitution of Haiti (French: Constitution d'Ayïti) was modeled after the constitutions of the United States and France.
Constitution of 1987. Banned dual citizenship, effectively restricting Haitian-Americans (such as Samir Mourra and Dumarsais Simeus) from running for president in Haiti. Was ratified in March 1987, but it was completely suspended from June 1988 to March 1989 and was only fully reinstated in October 1994.
The constitution was then amended in 2012 to re-legalizes dual citizenship. ❞

❝ “Fight all the prejudices that do not want us to realize our projects.“
The ideology of the Haitian culture is still infused with classism inherited from the days of colonization. Steeve Khe’s problem is that of many. The parents do not find that he’s a good fit for their daughter being that they consider him of a lower class.
