What is the issue between Haiti and the Dominican Republic? In the past years, problems between Haitians and Dominicans have reached an all new high. Haiti and Dominican Republic are two countries that coexist on the same island, with a fake line dividing the two. By “fake line”, I mean in actuality Haitians and Dominicans are not really separate individuals in the fact that both groups of people have the same history and come from the same place. The main problem is some Dominicans do not accept this fact.
In Chapter 5, the belief that the “blood remains Haitian”, regardless of citizenship, comes up often. While this notion allows those in Haiti to expand the “nation” and links them to lands of greater opportunity, it is especially significant to Haitian immigrants in the U.S., who often experience racism on a daily basis, as it gives them a location in which they can be proud of their race and to which they will always belong. Chapter 6 discusses multiple meanings of nationalism through the gender lens: “[b]y exploring why Nanie [Fouron’s mother] expressed her anger at a difficult marriage and oppressive system of gender by rejecting her nationality, we [come] to understand the different ways in which Haitian women and men, Haitians of different classes, and Haitians in Haiti and the diaspora, come to identify with and understand the nation” (132).

However, Haiti’s culture differs from the United States in three major points; Values, religion, and norms.
The word voodoo has such a stigma around, this is due to the fact that people are mainly informed of the “tourist” appeal of voodoo. People and when I say people, me included before this, thought it was about witches, magic, and dolls. I believed it was about dark magic and the practice of it, not even knowing it was a followed religion or even a way of life. To understand this somewhat mysterious and “taboo” subject we wanted to first understand specifically how does a person who follows voodoo participate in their faith; and secondly how does voodooism address health/ sickness and curing? We wanted to find out what was below the surface of the word Voodoo. What are the ways of their faith? How similar is it to other religions, and where is its history?

New empires and nations began growing and expanding their territory, and as a result of these actions, wars, bankruptcy, and rebellions became more common. An example is the American Revolution, in which the American colonists, who were influenced by new philosophies and the sense of nationalism, fought and gained their independence from Britain. This revolution eventually inspired others throughout the world as it was successful in gaining the colonies independence from a powerful European empire. Those revolutions include the Haitian and French Revolution. The Haitian Revolution can be compared to the French revolution in that they were both influenced by the Enlightenment
I’m a passionate and driven individual. One of my main goals for proceeding with my education consists of promoting education to my relatives in Haiti. In Haiti, less than forty-five percent of people have a college education. This statistic draws a negative image of Haitians residing in Haiti, and their perception on education. I believe my attendance will encourage my relatives to resume their educational pursuits, and the next generation will follow.
On September Wednesday 23, 2015 I gave my very first speech about culture in front of 23 random classmate. They all starring at me, waiting for me to say something, I was already sweating just searching for my Power-point. I am horrified of public speaking or facing large crowds of people, my uncomfortableness showed through my speech. I choose to talk about the Haitian culture not only because it’s my culture because no one really know the real facts about the Haitian culture. My purpose was to present some facts and details about the culture because all people know about the country is that it is the poorest country in the world and when you google it all you see is ruthless images which is not all true.
When I was younger, I lived in a small village in China where everyone was Chinese like me. Moving to America, I was exposed to diversity for the first time. I have friends from France, Mexico, Vietnam, among many other places, and this inspired my love for world history.
