I have read other accounts of Toussaints surender and life story. He was told by his own generals to send REPRESENTATIVES to discuss the treaty. He was hard headed and wanted to face the French and discuss the terms face to face at the table of negotiotion. Only an ignorant person wants to face an enemy face to face at this level of politics. This is why SECRETATIES, AMBASSADORS, NEGOTIATORS are used in discussing the terms of political agreements instead of the PRESIDENT personally who got the victory over an enemy in war. Retalliation is always possible if you make an appearance before terms are settled. As I said earlier, he wanted to personally negotiate with the white. He also wanted them to accept him as their equal. He also wanted to be restored as a member of the White Catholic Church. This is the same mind set of many blacks today,and you know this is true and factual. Why do you think so many of us want to marry mssah,and his children, or want to move next door, or bleach our skin or our hair blond to try to look like the one who has done us the most harm. This a mental issue regardless of what you think or say. As for as I know you could have some of the same issues as he had. By the way, this article is not the only information about the beliefs, life, conflicting ideas,mindset and ego of Toussaint L'Overture. Peace
Please show & prove these alligations on our ancestor because you are making a lot of harsh charges without any proof. All you seem to want to do in this thread is talk ugly about him and discredit his efforts. We all have our opinions, but you seem to be going out of your way for this brother.
Can you post a link, or direct me to the reading material you mentioned where you found all of this *new info* on the brother?
-Because of his mental conditioning, he never realized that what he held on to about whites forced him to remain a slave until his voluntary surrender to his white masters. He died seeking the approval of whites
