Jews are 2% of the population.

Edit: 2% of the US. The claim is that since Blacks are 95% of the population, a minority could not have a significant effect on the culture and economy. Obviously Voat takes that exact premise for granted when it talks about Jewish elites in the US. I don't know anything about Haiti, I don't have an opinion on "who's to blame" for the shithole that is Haiti, but you can't discount the potential influence of a Middleman Minorities.

Did you reply to the wrong comment?

In Haiti's largest city, Port-au-Prince, there were only 25 Jewish families in 2013. Port-au-Prince's population is estimated at 2.6m and Haiti's population is estimated at a little over 10 million.

Feel free to provide more accurate statistics as I couldn't find any, but ~100 Jewish Haitian families at an average of 4 people per family is 400 / 10,000,000 = 0.004%, not 2%.

Do you think that the Haitians are better off without the French?

Do you really not think that the place is an absolute shit hole because makeup of the population?
