Haitian-Dominican Wins Olympics Medal

If the surprise is still not apparent, consider that the Dominican government stripped all Dominicans of foreign descent of their citizenship just in 2013. The people disproportionately affected were Dominicans of Haitian descent, and the cities all over the U.S. rallied for the government to cease its “ethnic cleansing.
