    Haiti and the Dominican Republic share a border, and an island. But the two countries are very different today: the Dominican Republic enjoys higher quality of life for many factors than Haiti. I went to this island and visited both countries, to try and understand when and how their paths diverged. And I began to learn how those differences are playing out in the present.
    Vox Borders is a new international documentary series presented by lululemon, by Emmy-nominated videojournalist Johnny Harris. For this series, Johnny is producing six 10-15 minute documentaries about different borders stories from around the world.

      Cameron Howard first of all that .,have a good day.
      It is a country that is in "development" that due to bad administration stagnates .., and in spite of what you see in this video, the truth is that there are many illegals in DR (Haitians, Venezuelans and South Americans). but the Haitian community is more .., I hope they show the second part of the video and the contributions of both parties., Santo Somingo in Haiti and the contributions of Haiti to Santo Domingo. but they are two very different cultures on an island of 72, 192 km. I hope that in the future both parties can survive the one and the other. besides that if you get to see the island you will see as the reality (not the part of beaches and parts of tourism (there are many Haitians who work in the hotels of Punta Cana and Bavaro (legal and illegal), if not the neighborhoods and communities.

      Please, make a video about rich Haitians who live and attend college in the Dominican Republic. I would like to hear their stories. How they are treated in DR and what is their opinion about their poor citizens coming into DR. By the way, I totally disagree about my government strip off Haitians from their Dominican citizenship.

    Shows you how easily people can be manipulated on such a one sided story. Seems legit since it looks like this channel is Anti-Trump as well. The Dominicans gained independence from the Haitians by being enslaved by them for 22 years. That was the start of the hatred towards them. Also, Dominicans have helped Haitians, They where the first responders during the earthquake. In construction jobs around the island, around 70% of the workers are Haitians( providing Jobs) . This video is a promotion of Haitians just walking easily into the Dominican Republic just like all these supporters of letting anyone cross the borders into the USA without any issues. Many countries support Haiti and want many of them to enter DR. Maybe they should just provide Haitians with Visas to their countries. I am not Dominican nor Haitian. I don't have a bias on either side. But this video is purely one sided.

    Soy dominicano, amo la historia y entré al vídeo para ver CÓMO HAITÍ Y REP. DOMINICANA LLEGARON A SER DOS MUNDOS DIFERENTES, pero me encontré con un vídeo bastante injusto en detrimento de mi nación. No es que se deba ocultar los problemas, los problemas existen en todos lugares. Más bien es que se proyecte la realidad y no un documental basado íntegramente en la opinión popular y no con sustentos científicos y profesionales, además del popular.
    Ahí no dices que las autoridades haitianas quitaban las mercancías que compraban los haitianos y se las botaban.
    Tampoco dice que los haitianos prohibieron el ingreso de múltiples productos dominicanos en detrimento de sus propios ciudadanos.
    ¡Sean más honestos y justos!
    Psdt.
    Avisen cuando salga el vídeo de CÓMO HAITI Y LA REP. DOMINICANA LLEGARON A SER DOS MUNDOS DIFERENTES.

    Buenas Noches.
    Me han escrito diciendome que Republica Dominicana es mas racista que EE.UU.
    No me he sorprendido por lo escrito ya que el ser humano opina de determinada manera por 3 cosas fundamentalmente.
    1. Opinion personal.
    2. Conveniencia.
    3. Desinformacion.
    Cuando intercambio opiniones con otras personas trato de hacerlo dentro del marco del respeto a la opinion contraria independientemente de que no la comparta, ahora bien por lo menos espero que esa opinion tenga algun tipo de fuente o estadistica imparcial.
    dato #1: no soy blanco, soy de piel mulata y cuando me dejo la barba en el aeropuerto bromean conmigo y mi equipaje como si fuera musulman, taliban, o un terrorista.....solo me sonrio y desde que hablo se dan cuenta de que estoy muy lejos de eso.....que quiero decir... no me siento ofendido ni creo que sea racismo.......tengo 3 primos que si hablaramos de raza son de piel oscura y cuando andamos juntos si estan buscando personas con perfiles asi sencillamente les preguntan a ellos y a mi no......es solo eso....es logico que no me mirarian a mi en este caso....solo buscan un perfil y punto..... igual que si pasa cuando buscan un blanco con ojos azules.....no me mirarian a mi solo buscarian ese perfil... ninguno de nosotros nos ofendemos.....
    Si estamos en dominicana y en familia y amistades habemos blancos ojos verdes, mulatos, negros, incluso asiaticos y no esta' marcada la diferencia entre razas, si hacemos una broma se hace y se queda ahi pero no pasa nada.......
    dato #2: solo por cultura general:
    - en 2017 aumentaron los grupo racistas en estados unidos, solo en miami a 66 grupos segun la SPLC.
    - del 2016 al 2017 aumento de 917 a 954 agrupaciones reconocidas de odio segun agencias norteamericanas.
    - los demas han aumentado un 20%, y los grupos neonazis un 22%.
    - grupos antimusulmanes crecieron por tercer año consecutivo.
    - y presencia de grupos como el KU KLUX kLAN
    - donald trump presidente de ee.uu, llamo' a los paises africanos paises de mierda.
    - existencia de grupos nacionalistas negros en contra de los blancos que aumentaron en 2017, de 193 a 233 en un solo año.
    -ataques de supremacistas blancos en virginia.
    -en el 2011, se contabilizo 1,018 organizaciones raciales y de odio....las mayores en 30 años.
    -KKK, en casi todos los estados.... de 5,000 a 8,000 miembros activos.
    -grupos neonazis.
    -grupos anti hindues.
    - grupos antihispanos.
    -grupos anti-italianos.
    -grupos antisemita.
    Por dios y seguiria toda una lista..........
    No creo que la comparacion a nivel racial entre la Republica Dominicana y EE.UU sea tema de dialogo.
    Buenas Noches.

    Social Media as usual misleading the fools!!!
    The reality is totally different than the one shown here..Let me explain that;
    We Dominicans are not racists at all, we just want to keep our sovereignty as an Independent Republic!
    Haitians are one of a kind race. Let me explain this as well; They live like animals (I'm not saying they are animals) their personal hygiene practices are poor, they pee and defecate anywhere like animals, they practice voodoo, sorcery, occultism, etc. They DESTROYED their part of the island and will destroy ours if we keep letting them to stay on our side. They cut all trees to make charcoal for cooking and they don't plant trees to keep the forest alive. They are like locust. The American Government recently deported 70,000 haitians nationals to haiti. Where do you think they are going to end? Yes, in the Dominican Republic of course! If you read the real history of our Country (DR), you will discover that our ancestors were slaves of the haitians for three consecutive times. They had to fight multiple battles to gain our independence from the haitians. We are not racist at all...! We are just protecting our side of the island from the depredators!
    Remember Edmund Burke's quote? Edmund Burke (1729-1797) “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
    George Santayana (1863-1952) “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

    This video is one-sided and oversimplifies the problem, trying to squeeze it into the traditional "black people as the victim of racism" narrative. For example, Haitians started their revolution by killing all the whites in the country, including women in children. The world at the time was definitely racist, but that was not the only reason for the blocades and embargoes. It did not get much better since then: the video mentions brutal dictators, but only in passing. This does not absolve Dominicans of the responsibility for hostile treatment of the Haitians, but the Haitians by no means are saints.

    Racism: in the 90s Haiti recieved $13 billion in aid for the earthquake. Also over a billion for development of energy. Countless non-profits showering it with aid. Still poor. Also all this talk about the soil being bad, you can buy a bag of fertilizer and fix it in one year. Or if you can't afford fertilizer- you live by the ocean and fish make great fertilizer. Racism is when you are black and score low on an I.Q. test it is blamed on white racism. Or if you are black and commit crimes or engage in other self destructive behavior- its blamed on white people. By some act of magick white people have been able to oppress black people in every corner of the globe where they live- even in a nation like Haiti where 100% of the population is black! Top that off, various hispanic and white nations have showered Haiti with aid money and other help. If you consistently fail in life in all conditions and locations there is probably something wrong with you- I don't think it is the white man making you fail. If you get a low I.Q. score you probably have a low I.Q. rather than white people being in a grand conspiracy to keep you down.

    The same thing happened in South Africa. It was wealthy and stable like the DR. Power was then handed over to blacks and it is now dealing with massive crime and poverty like Haiti. But we aren't allowed to talk about the truth of racial differences so we just blame it all on white racism and colonialism.

    let's make some points clear, I'm Dominican and the narrator is distorting the realities, previously we were slaves of the Haitians that linebacker for France took control of our island, they killed and raped thousands and thousands of Dominicans, (it's a difficult past to forget) we become independent from them, but they still think that we are part of them, in the schools they educate them with that thought, it is a delicate subject, but they exploited their resources of their island, what do we do? allow us to destroy the island of us? Of course not and we are willing to die for our sovereignty, and it is a pity the entire situation of Haiti, but the guilty are their governments that only steal all resources and have their homeless people. God bless you all and I hope you study our history well so that you understand us a bit, put yourself in our situation.

      The Caribbean territories once under French rule (Haiti, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Dominica and Saint Lucia) share a similar French-based Creole tongue, to an extent. Just some slight variations in the pronunciation of some words.The language is a mixture of African languages and French, and in the case of St. Lucia (where I am from), English. As a Saint Lucian listening to the dialogue, I find that the Haitians just have a French accent in speaking their Creole, whereas we sound more flat. But St. Lucian Creole sounds similar to that of Martinique, our neighbour to the north, in the Eastern Caribbean.

Haiti is hampered by witchcraft, voodoo, HIV, disease, superstition, corruption, crime, cruelty and incompetence at all levels. It's no wonder the DR wants to keep their culture out. Forget the white guilt and what happened centuries ago. These people have to get on with it, clean their own country up and pull themselves up by sheer willpower. Nobody is going to do it for them. They could start by cleaning up their beaches! They have a beautiful country. Don't tell me they still haven't heard of crop rotation?

    Haiti invaded the DR upon reaching independence. The Haitians were brutal animals in that war. The animals were driven back to Haitian shores. It is no wonder that people in the DR have a contempt for the Haitian animals. They invaded the DR in hopes of dragging them down into the ditch with Haiti. Now they want to invade again, but DR is having none of it. Why isn't this mentioned in the history. It helps explain a lot more.

    This is a huge problem for America. Those blacks, Hispanics, and asians will take their intelligence back to their home countries and developed them and America will lose out. This is one reason that there is a Indian Hollywood, a chinese silocon valley etc. America can only compete by attractive geniousus from around the world. Without them America is nothing.

    It is very fun to talk about a topic and not knowing both sides of the story. First, the Dominican Republic is poor, this documentary portraits the DR as a developed country which is not the case. Second, the market in which Haitians have less advantage is on Dominican floor meaning it is reasonable that Haitians have to wait to come in. Third, like lots of the things that are supposed to be a law in the Dominican Republic never get done. For example, 2018 and Haitians are still coming in and out with no consecuenses. Lastly, there is racism in the DR it is not false, some Dominicans think they are white being black all around the country. This idea came from one of our dictators Leonidas Trujillo. But, what is an actual problem in the DR is classism, meaning people are treated different based on there economical status. Regardless of skin color, nationality etc. if you have money you will be treated as a superior being than any other not wealthy person. Also, people on the comments think is very offensive to be called black as a Dominican. I am a black Dominican and I think it is ridiculous when people try to offend you with something that is a physical trait.
    P.D.
    People that are saying mulatos is what Dominicans are please make sure you know what mulato actually means. Lots of black people hate that word, because initially Spanish colonizers compared that "skin tone" as a person being a Mule meaning people called like that are being compared to an animal. But not everyone has that connotation to it.

    In this video it is alluded to that the Haitian woman is Dominican because she speaks perfectly Spanish, well let me tell you that you would be surprised with Dominicans who speak English perfectly without ever having left the country to another English speaker. Discrimination, mistreatment, happens in all migrant countries, in all countries where there are borders and this does not mean that that country is racist. I leave a question in the air. A case is not what happens with the United States of North America with Mexicans, Central America and all Latin America?

    The DR should stop spreading self hate and start focusing on that child prostitution and child sex trafficking problem that they have going on. Just saying. White men travel over there alone and rape those poor Dominican kids male and female and the community looks the other way, I guess the tourism bucks are worth it smh absolutely disgusting . It’s really sad.

    My grandmother is also very black but she has no Haitian descent. That's really unfair the other way to be treated but the Dominicans just want to protect their country brutally brutal kind

    I am a Dominican and I have nothing against Haiti but I do not like it from both countries that they insult each other in a rashistic way but it does not matter if they are blacker than them be glad that you have no disease on your skin.

    I am not usually the one to usually go on social media but this is ridiculous. What they show you is what they want to show you. Although Dominican Republic is a wonderful country, we are still trying to build ourselves up. We have starving kids in the streets and poor family’s. We have people living in ghettos where their houses are made of metals walls or old abandoned apartment complexes. In every country there are those who hate and there are those evil seems to overshadow all the good. And trust me Domican help, but how do you expect us to help when we barely had food of our own. There are people that literally rent babies from other mothers on the streets of Dominican Republic and get out in the middle of the road while people are driving in order to make enough to survive. There are people that step out in front of moving cars and throw water on your car with water bottles in order to make a couple extra bucks by cleaning your window. There are parents and kids that walk around the whole capital for hours in 100 degree weather just to make a couple pesos to be able to get a little bit of food for their families. When I was younger there were kids at my school that I would save food for and they would in turn go home and feed it to their 5 brothers and sisters, so that they can have food. Just like any country Haiti has its rich areas. The problem is that the government is so corrupt that the unfortunate neighboring people do not get the benefits of the small few in Haiti that get to live these lavish lifestyles. People that live in America live in a perfect world where things are literally handed to you. You have a roof over your head and food to atleast survive. Where I’m from people do not have that. So instead of judging a nation for trying to grow and work themselves up while still trying to help the Haitians after so much has happened to them, be thankful that you live a life that you get to not have to experience the pain that these people do. And for all you that are trying to put this great nation down maybe try stepping into the shoes of a Dominican and see what it’s like. Stop judging areas by the tourist destination not Punta Cana or Boca Chica. Go to the mountains and the plains. Go to the areas that don’t have power or running water that no one seems to care about.And once you do that if you still have the same opinion then so be it, but until then enjoy the privilege and stop judging people for just trying to survive and live the best life that they possibly can.

    Dude Amazing reporting.. Thank you, for the great job... This added some additional insight into the DR / Haiti relationship... And the reason why the Haitian land is destroyed. Amazing Coverage... Sad how Haitians have been rapped by corrupt politicians; also how the Clinton's openly rapped the Haitians... And the UN should stay the hell out of the world...

    It is not racism, it is simply hatred infused by the Haitian invasion that the Dominicans suffered as soon as they achieved independence, that part of history is missing.
