The oligarchy in Haiti works with the oligarchy in the Dominican Republic. In Haiti that oligarchy is made up of a lot of billionaires, folks like Bigio and Acra and Mev. In Haiti we call them the mercenary families. They are the subcontractors for empire. In the Dominican Republic they also have an oligarchy. That oligarchy also … benefits from this denationalization.” –The Real News Network with Jessica Desvarieux Interviews Haiti Human Rights Lawyer, Ezili Dantò of HLLN

How big business fuels Haitian-Dominican Tensions
“Who benefits from depopulating both Haiti and Dominican Republic? It’s exploited Haitian labor that’s helping to build the baseball academies and other construction projects, that all 30 Major League teams run in the Dominican Republic.

These baseball plantations provide Dominican boys with coaching, baseball fundamentals, uniforms, education, dormitories and food. The academies serve as boot camps for potential Major Leaguers. Dance mat typing is mastered at the initial stages.

Timberland boots got its swagger because Black men and Hip Hop stars wear them. They too have an economic stake in the DR connected to Black life and wealth in the US. Yet, the Haiti laborers in the DR who work at these places, as well as in the sugar cane and communication industries, are targets of a state act of terrorism that denationalizes and subjects all legal residence with African features with deportation and theft.

These big billion dollar industries, along with the big mining companies, like Barrick Gold, benefit when underpaid Haiti workers, lose their lands, are cheated out of their wages, get deported without due process.

Is this why they’ve remain silent on the DR’s new whitening and apartheid law that, in effect, makes the already persecuted Haiti worker, more of a target?”

    people are concentrating on how bad haitians are being treated by the D.R. how about those billioners in haiti that you mentioned? they wont even build a clinic or a hospital for these women to give birth, they have to cross the border to give birth in the d. r. how about the billions of dollars in aid after the earthquake? what did the haitian govt. do with those billions? You make it sound like dominicans wont do some type of work, like we are all rich. Two out three dominicans have to work for themselves, self employed because the construction and agricultural work goes to the low waging haitians. These 2 poor, or mismanaged nations are being bunched up into one because the billionaires in haiti and their govt. wont even build a clinic or creat jobs for their own people. At least the rich in D.R. create some type of work and the dominican govt. does plenty of public works like hospitals schools and highways, yet we are bad people, would you move over your neighbors house and keep on having babies after your house broke down?

    The Haitians are stupid for wanting to stay and put up with that racism.  I go to Haiti now and before I was going to DR for 9 yrs.  And it took me 4 yrs to find out that DR is a racist shit hole that has a color cast system and has no luv for no one, they don't even have luv for themselves or each other.  This is not directed at the culturally conscience Dominicans who live there and in the USA. There are 10 million peace loving honest Haitians living in Haiti doing just fine with what they have in Haiti  The racism in DR is worst than in the US and you dum azz Negropeans still go and give ur money to that racist third world country.  No matter how militant, educated or Black minded you think you are, you are a modern day slave that thinks you are free.  However, all in all you are a primitive thinking uneducated subspecies that can walk and talk English.  The whites tourist who visit DR  are just a step above you (in the eyes of the racist Dominicans) because they are only respected for their color and money and not necessarily in that order.  So all you Einsteins need to just do life and the world a favor and let natural selection take its course because u idiots dont think and have no brains anyway..  As you can see, I have lost faith in most of man (kind)
