Haiti and the Dominican Republic: one island divided by racism and violence

January 5, 2008

One island, two countries, seven stories. The people and the land shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic are one altogether, but they are separated in many ways.

The relation between the Dominican Republic and Haiti is perhaps one of the saddest cases of human inequality, discrimiation and abuse, and one of the saddest examples of how far we humans can go in order to make money out of other peoples tragedy.

    Hi Joshuab10, I am not sure what part of this post you are referring to, please reply when possible.

    Update: I’m sorry Joshua I don’t have that specific information, unfortunatelly. The report is from Al-Jazeera.
