An Island Divided, A History forgotten

 "Anti-Haitianism in the Dominican Republic reaches back decades, if not centuries; unacknowledged and institutionalized, it has been manipulated and put to political use. Rather than being united by their shared histories, the two sides of Hispaniola remain riven by an unresolved past. It is not yet clear how this ruling will be turned into policy, but in facing such an uncertain future, these Dominicans also carry with them a heavy burden of the past."

Shared history, shared land, yet standing so divided today.
