Not only am I proud of all the wins that we have been winning as Americans! but shout out to my second home! Luisito Pie, a Dominican of Haitian descent, has won the country’s first 2016 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.
If you know the history of the Dominicans and Haitians this win could bring unity between the two Caribbean cultures!Congratulations on this win for Luisito Pie, y dale!
