If you’re Dominican, then you’re Haitian!

People always insist on the fact that because I am from the Dominican Republic I’m Haitian. No. I don’t think this is so because I don’t follow any of the Haitian customs and I’ve never even been there. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with being Haitian it’s just that I consider myself a Dominican, someone of various mixed races. I like to say that I am multiracial because that’s exactly what Dominicans are. And that is what I am!
