I admire Dominicans but I hate the way they treat Haitians living in DR

Wilkenson Pierre-louis - June 27 2013, 12:08 PM

I've been living in France for more than 30 years since I left Haiti at the age of 10 and I've never been to DR. The main reason why I don't like Dominicans is because of the way they treat our people and have always done.

I admire them for what they've done with their part of the Quiskeya but from an historic point of view, they've been very rude with us. Massacres, exploitation of our people, etc...

Anyway, in the long run, we have to get on well with them for the sake of Quiskeya.

When we look at their country we can see what we have to do to offer a better living to our population.

I think that if we achieve to recover our economy and people conditions, we can imagine that Quiskeya could be re-united.

Of course, there will be political, language and human concerns but we could be stronger in the Caribbean area. So, let's fix things in Haiti to allow this dream come true.

Peace.
