I thank you for reaching out to us. My son had a child 11 years ago with a lady from the Dominican Republic, and she was born in NY. She was the first Dominican, and Dominican family I came in contact with during my life time. I heard stories, and the nightmares Haitians are living in the Dominican Republic but never dealt with them personally.

I blame our government, and the parties in charge of Haiti.

We use to occupy the Dominican Republic, and our Haitians should not be treated like animals in the DR. Haitians are supporting the DR's economy by trades, and send their kids to school there.

The Dominicans are not any better than us, but think they are due to their light complexion.

My grandchild's mom felt she was superior to my son, and his family.

It was a nightmare, and as a result I am no longer close to my grandbaby.

My personal experience with this particular family left me with a bitter taste in my mouth, and felt disrespected as a proud Haitian.

It made me come to the conclusion that Dominicans look down on Haitians.

It is not the Haitians' fault, but the Dominicans are having an identity crisis and are so confused.

Haitians know what they are, and we are a proud people.

Dominicans are blacks who think they are whites, and superior to others due to skin color or hair texture.

Colonolization, and slavery left them with some serious issues.

The Dominicans are not the only ones, and the majority of Latinos feel they are whites or superior to blacks.

The Argentinians are so crazy, and think they are Italians.

The Latinos felt to realize that you are either Black, White, Yellow, or Red. Puerto Ricans think they are a race, and does not realize being Puerto Rican is a culture.

The majority of Latinos are Native Americans, and it is sad that they do not realize it. I had a Puerto Rican little girl who told me once "I do not speak Mexican", and she learned it from the home. It is very sad.
