How Napoleon’s Racism lost France an Empire
Sometimes the history you don’t know is the most informative; for instance, how Napoleon’s racism lost France an empire.
To be more precise, Napoleon’s racism cost France its most valuable colony; Haiti. To explain, Napoleon could have kept the then-valuable Caribbean nation of Haiti as a French colony.
However, the supposed military and political genius let racism and greed guide national policy. Consequently, France lost Saint-Domingue or Haiti.
