The recent incidents between Dominicans and Haitians are not new but have been ongoing between these two neighboring nations. For the Dominican government to remain silent on these disturbing acts clearly prove they are either in agreement with these barbaric acts or support them. Many of the Dominicans do not consider themselves black or mixed, have the illusion that they are white when they are of African and Spanish descent, and also Haitians . It’s sad not to know one’s history.
When I hear many Haitian politicians in Haiti and in the Diaspora talking about how Dominicans do not respect Haitians living in Dominican Republic and how they have been discriminating against Haitians, I smile with sarcasm, thinking how do you expect Dominicans to respect Haitians living in their land where their own government do not even respect them in Haiti.
I want to take a different approach on the issues with the recent Haitian Shoe shiner that was killed, by hanging, in Dominican Republic, angering and infuriating the entire Haitian nation. via | Examiner.com
