BlackAmerican regardless of what Haitians will tell you and whatever excuse they give ,NOBODY likes to be occupied and to be occupied by a foreign nation that forces you to pay for their problems ,tries to destroy your culture and your language is something NOBODY will appreciate or tolerate.The dictator Trujillo did use the EXISTING animosity towards Haitians to his own benefit but the animosity was due to a long BRUTAL occupation and 5 subsequent invasions that thank God were repelled! The Haitian think we should thank them for said "generosity" and to this day only find excuses for their mistreatment of our people instead of accepting their mistakes and publicly stating so which would at least start the healing process. Repentance is the path to forgiveness but when Haitians repeat time and time again that we should be "thankful" to them it proves that they still don't understand why we cannot the issues that separate the two nations still exist.This thread is filled with the most ignorance I have seen in a very long time. My friends and I vacation in all of these countries and we view everyone the same....unfortunate. stop downing one another and help eachother. Nobody is better than the other in Gods eyes
According to Haitians ,their nation is a great nation that has not done anything wrong to anyone and that we (and the world) should thank them ,but as Dominicans we are so ungrateful that we do not thank them for their occupation and subsequent scorched earth invasions (5) so this is a story that will never end.
