Oprah in Haiti to help poor Haitians or to promote new show using poor Haitians?

Do you know how much Oprah can do to help Haitians if she really wants to? In my opinion, Oprah Winfrey is not in Haiti to assess the situation in which many Haitians have been living since the 2010 earthquake, or for the past 100 years.


It's all about Oprah Winfrey.

According to to what I heard in the news, when arrived in Haiti on Sunday, the security that was given to Oprah was one never seen before at Toussaint L'Ouverture Airport. She toured some camps under tight security Monday. One local photographer was detained for about 90 minutes as he tried to cover Queen Oprah Winfrey.

Here is a video of Oprah Winfrey with actor Sean Penn in Haiti

This kind of things can only happen in my "Haiti Cherie"

Now, will Haitians benefit from this visit?

Will I be hearing about some major projects left behind after Oprah finishes with her filming in Haiti?

I have one suggestion for Oprah Winfrey that will benefit both the Haitians and Oprah. Please take one major Haitian City and ask the Haitian government to change the name to "Oprah City". Take the responsibility to improve the living condition in that new Oprah City

Kote l te ye depi tan an. Se pa ede yal ede ayiti vre. Opra jis al chache informasyon pou l ka kontinye vi n pale ayisuen mal. Se domaj pou ti pep sa a. Tout moun kjonnen Oprah se yon anti ayisyen.

Anpil demagoji sou do pep

It's time for Haitians to stop complaining and playing constant victims.

I for one is very happy of Oprah's visit and I hope that her show will promote my country and encourage people from around the world to visit this beautiful but poor country which will bring much needed US dollars.

Oprah, thank you so much for visiting, we hope you will be back
