The Ruling CAFTA Class in the Dominican Republic: Let The Racist Games Begin Again!

In response:

The Ruling CAFTA Class in the Dominican Republic:  Let The Racist Games Begin Again!

And Washington - what do you have to say about this Dominican Republic travesty? 

Washington?  Hello.........Washington?  You say the DR is a Democracy and part of  the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), so all is well?

You say their human rights abuses, poverty and immigration problems aren't our problems to worry about? 

That's what I thought.

Here is the economic scoop from the US Department of State:

U.S. exports to the Dominican Republic include oil, agricultural products, machinery, vehicles, and cotton, yarn, and fabric. U.S. imports from the Dominican Republic include optical and medical instruments, jewelry and gold, agricultural products, machinery, tobacco, and knit apparel. U.S. firms, mostly manufacturers of apparel, footwear, and light electronics, as well as U.S. energy companies, account for much of the foreign private investment in the Dominican Republic.

That just about sums it up Washington's self-serving interests.  The US did support a coup in the Dominican Republic in 1965 bringing Democracy (AKA US economic control) to yet another Latin American country.

An because of US economic interests in the DR, Washington will zip its lips about this human right's tragedy just as it does Mexico's ongoing drug war.  We just can't upset that NAFTA tea cart either!

Let's just see if this horrible reinstatement of racism by the US supported powers to be in the DR don not end up pushing some of these Dominicans of Haitian decent to the US illegally.
