Full story: The Morning Call

She settled, albeit gratefully, for a flag-raising ceremony hosted by the city of Allentown, usually on the closest Sunday to the holiday on Feb.

I have many American friends in the Dominican Republic. They celebrate their own American festivities in foreign land.
Most of you are ignorant and do not know your own history. The United States sent the marines to Santo Domingo, illegally and carrying arms from 1916 to 1924. In 1916, the peasantry fought back, but they lost. The Americans took their lands for pennies (they changed the land tenure system) and installed 16 sugar cane mills. They brought Haitians to worked in the sugar cane because Dominicans refused to work for pennies in the land that was taken away from them. Today, i/3 of the sugar cane production in the DR is american owned, a residual from 1916.
They formed an Army and left a dictator for 31 years, whom they supported and trained. Read "The Americans in Santo Domingo, a book in english written in 1928, by an American, melvin Knight. Read about the Nicaraguan invasion and the three generation of Zomosas that American installed. Read about Panama. It was part of colombia, and they divided the country to built the canna. Read Mexican history. They took half of mexican territory, and many mexicans found themselves from one day to the next invaded.
In 1965 they sent 42,000 Marines to the DR and killed 3,000 Dominicans. Read the first edition of the Latin American Working Group, from Canada. the picture and documentation of the invasion went around the world. Americans are hated in many parts of the world because of their invasions and greed.
Reading this column makes me sick. This land was taken unlawfully from the indigenous people of this continent, and now, Europeans that came to invade the land thank god for the bounty they stole from others, and asked immigrants from countries colonized by their armies, to go back to their countries.
Racism is rotting your minds.
this is why they come to this country and commit crimes against americans. there is a family living the american dream next to me, they are buying a house through there sister wile being on welfare and sucking off the system, and destroying the neighborhood buy makeing it look like the dr with garbage thrown off the porch wile mometa is watching.

First of all Allentown is one of the slummiest places in P.A. look at the satistics, crime rate very high, demographics state that shay-whitey has a small percentage there, I agree with the other post read your American History, the Americans stole from many.

Remember the quote what goes around comes around, white pride has been taking things away for years now look who has come back and is taken over the land, it was just a matter of time.

This is just what a broke city needs. More lowlives turning the city into a bigger garbage dump than it already is. Who is going to pay for the clean up? Who is going to pay for the added police protection?
I want a WHITE PRIDE parade in Allentown. I want it paid for by the thousands of welfare mooches from the various "islands" that choose to disgrace America with thier presence.
This is total fu#king bullsh!t.

If you could read a statistic properly you would notice that the CRIME HERE IS COMMITED MOSTLY BY LATIN SCUM!!!

Read A history book?

Here is the condensed version for you.

The White man came and took what he needed to build the GREATEST NATION the world has ever seen.

How's that for history, you lowlife?

Dominicans learned to leach of the welfare system from the puerto ricans and might be better then them at it (thats real bad). They flood Allentown with cocaine and they launder money for criminals in DR. This is the real facts and people who are dominican have the same mind set of puerto ricans, that if someone states facts about the majority of there race, then they get mad and ignore it or point the finger in another direction. They say they dont like puerto ricans but they act as bad and trashy as they do. Most are just mad because puerto ricans are US citizens and they need green cards. Again, I am just posting facts.
