    Singer Maxwell Haitian

    Why singer Maxwell don't want people to know he half Haitian? First of all if your mother Haitian your father Puerto-Rican died when you were 3 years old, and you raise with your Haitian mother go to Haitian's church eat rice and bean you cannot be anymore Haitian than that.

    Well it's not only him that does it, I personally think it's a american -celebrity thing .............some of them forget where there come from. I was watching wendy williams couples of weeks ago and she interview nia long and she mention she had has west- indian heritage ,but she didn't claim which island she from ( by the way nia long is a trini) and plus I heard wyclef doesn't wear the haitian flag anymore to his awards ceremony because there was a pressure on is record label company to tone down a bit -biggeing up his country !!!!!!!! And for some reason I really don't consider rick ross haitian but he does big us ups so I give him props to that !!!!!!!
    I would like to Thank all the fake haitians, who came out during the west-indian parade, but who has no roots to Haiti island ,and no haitian accent !!!!!!
    Thanks again see you phony people next year !!!!!!! ,2013.

    Maxwell has been open about his heritage. Not sure what the man or others are supposed to do to please some people.

    Maxwell's words...

    “I’m from Brooklyn, New York,” he told the crowd. “My family is from the West Indies: My mother is from Haiti and my father is Puerto Rican. Things like this are not are supposed to happen to us,” he said about headlining the Garden. “I’m gonna sing this song with all my heart and if you could help me, I would be so happy.”
    Obviously he's quite clear about his background.

    Ms. NIA LONG (Actress): I was born in Brooklyn. My family's from Trinidad and my mom, at 22 years old, single mother, we moved to Iowa City, Iowa, and she had a full scholarship there to go to the University of Iowa, and then finally she got her master's there.

    Angry

    Many Haitians knew from the get go that Maxwell was Haitian because he SAID SO when he first came out. Just because he doesn't walk around with a bumper sticker saying look at me i'm Haitian doesn't mean he was denying it. It's not necessary for him to do that.


    Now with that being said I hope that some of you that jumped in here as fast as you saw this thread (especially you Haitians) will do so with the same speed when music is being posted here and not just ignore it or say "nice" and keep it moving.

    Please don't believe everything you read or hear if not from the source directly. So many untruths and lies out their about Maxwell. I have met Maxwell and he is a very nice, sweet, and humble human being. I also have heard him mention his heritage so not sure where this question stemmed from. Have you seen this interview where he openly talks about being caribbean? It's one of the best interviews I've watched and I'm not just saying that because I'm his fan. Check it out yourself: video Guest Star Maxwell - guest, star, trace - videos mytrace
