'To blame' as a verb. "He blames the popular kids and the jocks for making him have a terrible high school experience." Also, put the blame on, pin the blame on , lay the blame on? verbal expressions for those? maybe?

to blame (lay blame on, accuse, hold responsible, etc...) → akize, repwoche, bay tò, bay (subject) tò, blame, blanmen

egz:
1. Moun ki fè zak la, se pa li yo bay tò.

2. Poukisa w'ap blanmen m pou yon bagay ki pa menm fòt mwen?
    Why are you blaming me for something that's not even my fault?

3. Se konsa li ye.  Li toujou ban m tò pou tout sa ki rive.
