The world is made up of a huge population of species. Humans are categorized as one specie. However, humans are diverse and come in a variety of different forms. They pertain to a culture and societies who share many elements in common. Although, people are born with an identity, power and society create a separation between humans.
The Dominican Republic is divided culturally between the French Haitians and the Spanish Dominicans, which started in the colonial times and continues thereafter. The racism became more intensified under the regime of Rafael Trujillo in 1930. Due to Trujillo’s racism against Haitians, he made it so any person who is Haitian in the Dominican Republic from 1929 and forward has no nationality in the Dominican. He did this by taking their birth papers and considering them to be “in transit”, this means they have just traveled to the Dominican Republic for work. He also enforced the border dispute, by not allowing anyone without birth papers to pass the border; Haitians could only stay on one side of the island.
Professor Henry Gates visits the island divided in his very first episode of Black in Latin America. The island of Hispaniola hosts both the nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic and have so for five centuries. The island was the first land in the Americas to import African slaves and from that point the two nations have shared the Massacre River, but nothing else. Haiti and Dominican Republic have two completely different cultural identities and this relates to the connections they have with their African ancestors. Professor Gates explores and compares both of these cultures and why they have so many differences, even though they are in very close proximity.
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). Chapter 7 looks at the nationalism of the second generation, both those who have grown up in the U.S. and those who have come of age in
The documentation of A Voyage to Saint Domingo (1797) is a first account of Francis Alexander Stanislaus and Baron de Wimpffen of their comparisons concerning different cities in regard to racism, religious rites, and pride, which the two sailor’s believed the city of Saint Domingo, happen to be the worst of all Spanish colonies This account was created to provide prove of the difference in citizenship in Saint Domingo, better known as Haiti. Similarly, within our course materials there is plenty of information regarding the Spanish of being racist, slave owners, and imperialist. Also, the inquisitions brought about some of the most disturbing religious extremism human beings has ever encountered. However, the message of the source is that
White Privilege The thought or conception that everyone is treated fairly, and without injustice is completely false. The term known as “White privilege”, is real, and evident in today’s time. White privilege is not something people do intentionally or on purpose, it is simply a dominance in race, social, and political values. Privilege in general is given to people who benefit from unearned advantages that others may have challenges facing everyday.
Although these are two “different” countries it is impossible for Haitians and Dominicans not to cross paths eventually. The history of one country can not be told without telling the history of the other. Unfortunately, these countries do not co-exist positively with one another due to past. In the past years, problems between Haitians and Dominicans have reached an
Although broken up thematically, each portion contributes to the central narrative of prevalent racism against Afro-Cubans. In part two, De La Fuente examines the labor market as well as the social mobility of Cubans. Speaking to labor concerns, De La Fuente relates equality of opportunity to economic success, therefore placing Afro-Cubans on a lower level of social mobility. His emphasis on European and white immigration as being praised does well to support his claim of inherent racism. The exclusion of Afro-Cubans in the labor force fixes itself to the idea of a certain Cuban identity, the central theme of the work.

Even though Haiti’s a poor country, his people have a big heart. Parents don’t want their child to work, they make them focus on school only, and their education. On the other hand, Americans just consider a child to be lazy if at their teenage age they still don’t work. They raise their children to be independent different from Haitian that make their children to depend on them. Another fact is that Americans are not really friendly; they avoid contact with people, and they have a hypocrite smile on their face, however, Haitians are really friendly, sincere, and courteous.
In the book Taking Haiti: Military Occupation and the Culture of U.S. Imperialism, author Mary A. Renda discussed the United States occupation of Haiti between the years of 1915 and 1934. When the United States decided to move into Haiti for military occupation, it wanted to establish not just control of the country, but it also wanted to secure its interests there. American politicians and many marines viewed Haiti through a racist lens and viewed their people and government as inferior. They believed the nation required a helping hand from the United States. American politicians justified the tactics of forced labor, economic manipulation by American politicians, and murder by the marines, as part of the paternalistic policy it had implanted there.

Just as Hitler wanted to destroy the Jewish race, Trujillo wanted to rid the country of blacks. "He had this thing about being white," Bartlett says. "He used to put powder on his face. In three weeks' time, I think, he had 15,000 black Haitians killed."” . ( King, Susan)
