Haitian Revolutionary leader, Toussaint L'Ouverture wrote a letter to the French Directory advising them against any efforts to re-institute slavery in Haiti. Three years later, Napoleon sought to reestablish slavery, and L'Ouverture headed the resistance. He was captured, taken to France and died in custody three years later. Napoleon was unable to subjugate Haiti.

It means over.

What is the trem mean mean?

There are three that I'm aware of: 1) mean - rude/unpleasant/unkind, saying words or committing actions that will intentionally hurt (physically, mentally, emotionally, or otherwise) the well-being of another, without reason or need. 2) mean - the definition or explanation of a concept (i.e., "what does that mean?"), or the intention ("what do you mean", "what do you mean to say", "did you mean to do that") 3) mean - an average, such as the "arithmetic mean". You add up the collection of numbers you have to get a total, then divide by the amount of individual numbers you had (for instance, if you have 4 numbers - for example 2, 3, 5, and 6, you add those 4 numbers to get 16, then divide the total by 4 since you had 4 numbers; the average, or "mean" is 4). What do you mean what does mean mean? Are you like, teasing us? Are you being mean? There is much to ponder and always when we ask, it's always the same, we ask in all earnestness, what does it mean? Do you know what I mean? I wonder if the average Joe knows what I mean, not that average Joe's don't ponder and ask what does it mean, I'm just saying that if you take all the average Joe's and look at them as a whole, how many of them do you really think will know what I mean? I mean, let's be honest here, I don't even know what I mean, do you know what I mean? What does mean mean? Ha! What does does do? What is what? Is is an is? What does mean mean, indeed!
