Yeah fuck that lady who owned the locker.
Her people are starving and she's hiding rolexes and 14K bottles of swill in storage ?
Haiti is one of the most corrupt countries in the world probably want her stuff to begin with .

There were 2 Haitian families on my block when I was a kid and they were clearly from 2 different socioeconomic classes back in Haiti:

1 family had a shit load of kids who write 2nd hand rags and were poor it was a wonder how they were able to own a house. The kids spoke English and Creole at home and the parents spoke mostly Creole and heavily accented English at times.

The other family spoke French regularly as opposed to Creole (they spoke it as well though) and just seemed different. I believe the father was a professor at Stony Brook. Even their phenotype was different as they could be mistaken for any number of ethnicities/nationalities. Today they would be described as "mixed" or having a heavy admixture.
Anytime they had family gatherings the block would be filled with Renaults, Citroëns, Peugeots, Alfa Romeos, and Maseratis.

Those were my earliest encounters with Haitians: either dirt poor or upper middle/lower upper class and worldly. And they lived next door to one another to boot

Haiti might be a poor country but every Haitian isn't a dirt poor UNICEF commercial stand-in with flies crawling across unblinking eyelids
