@Proud To Be Haitian

You keep bragging about Dominican once being slaves to Haitians.

Well, nowadays Haitians are slaves to Dominicans.

Your Haitian brothers and sisters cut cane by machete, they work 14 hour days, 7 days a week, frequently without access to decent housing, electricity, clean water, education, healthcare or adequate nutrition.

The Haitian immigrants are loaded onto trucks, stripped of their identification papers and transported in the middle of the night to the bateyes, where many are housed in concentration-camp-like barracks.

Haitians cane-cutters work 14 hours a day, seven days a week, earning less than $1 a day with minimal-to-nonexistent health care. Instead of cash, Haitians are paid in vouchers that can be redeemed for overpriced food at company-owned stores.

Since Haitians can afford only one meal a day, most of the calories they consume come from chewing sugar cane.

Since children born in the batey are not recognized as Dominican citizens, they grow up stateless.

What I just described has been called "Modern Day Sugarcane Slavery"

So tell me imbecile, how does it feels to be slaves to Dominicans?

Keep reminding Dominicans that we were once Haitian's slaves, and I will continue to remind you that Haitians are NOW Dominican's slaves.

This is a direct reply to: If the Haitians are trash, what does that makes you...
