James Weldon Johnson on the National City Bank of New York and Haiti

La Banque nationale d'Haiti, au Port-au-Prince. (page 218).To know the reasons for the present political situation in Haiti, to understand why the United States landed and has for five years maintained military forces in that country, why some three thousand Haitian men, women, and children have been shot down by American rifles and machine guns, it is necessary, among other things, to know that the National City Bank of New York is very interested in Haiti.
