I am lost as to what I am supposed to be doing with this paper at all. I don't know what they are asking me to do and I don't have any ideas. I already found my references that the paper called for.

You will choose a topic from historical events and/or current social issues and make connections with your identities, cultural positioning, positions of privilege and marginalization, etc.
As I understand these directions, you are to write about the Haitian earthquake from the perspective of the Haitians. Consider their history, economics, culture, etc.
Start with a thesis statement and an outline of what you want to say. You may want to show the thesis and outline to your instructor to be sure you're on the right track. 👍
