(Not So) Fun Fact: 1804 Haiti massacre

Facts about Haiti

During the Haitian revolution, former slaves had committed genocide against remaining white French people still living in the country. It shocked most of the world especially considering that people were slaughtered under the false pretense that they would be spared and it wasn’t just targeted to men. It also made things worse for slaves in America because regular people who did not own slaves became very afraid that what happened in Haiti would happened to them.
