Class discussion on the topic of Haitian mass migration to the United States in the late twentieth century reminds me of a broadcasting of the History Channel original Series Gangland. This particular episode features the violent gang, Top 6 composed of marginalized Haitian immigrants and their offspring. (I did not post the video because the content is rather graphic, but I provided a link below) If you have an opportunity to view the video, you can see the harsh reality that many Haitians faced after seeking asylum in the United States; Haitians left economic hardships and violence in the Caribbean to be met with more poverty and violence. Nevertheless, a number of Haitians took advantage of their new condition in the United States to become the abusers. Do you agree that the poverty serves as a catalyst for violence in Haitian communities.
