I’m mad... i’m really mad...
All my life
I’ve lived in the Dominican Republic. I was born here, my parents were born here
and all my family lives here.
something going on in the Dominican Republic that is being misinterpreted by
the whole world… The measures taken by the government are not a racial matter.
I saw a
tweet that made me write these words and clarify this matter. The tweet said:
“how is it possible to denationalise every black person in the Dominican
Republic. Why is everything happening all the time?” things like this drive me
crazy. How would a country get rid of 3/1 of their population? You, my friend,
are out of your mind if you think this is happening because we want to get rid
of black people. If that were the government mission, I would be the first one
to be against it.
happening to the UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS who couldn’t prove they have been
living here as long as the law commands to become a Dominican citizen. They’ve
had a two year deadline to demonstrate it, but most of them didn’t do it until
the last minute, and that’s why you’ve may seen pictures of long lines in front
of government buildings.
these most of immigrants live under really poor and bad conditions, and
sometimes aren’t treated the way they are supposed to be treated, but this
situation it’s happening with the Mexicans in the United States, but no one
speaks about it because it’s the United States that we are talking here,
"the perfect nation”.
We are a
poor country. We cannot afford anymore the economic weight of all these
undocumented immigrant. That’s why the government took this measurement.
This is a
very complicated matter, and has many layers that I won’t dig in, but I just
want to clarify, again, IS NOT A RACIAL THING, because first of all, all Dominicans,
in some way, are black descendant.
thing… Don’t put Trujillo as a reference of what it’s happening. What that
motherfucker did back in the day was a racial thing, this is not.
