    Symbol this is where I got the idea he was talking international,

    Did you read what I suggested?? Did I say anything about stoping gobal warming or did I say we should pool our litle nickles and dimes globally and create a International Black Emergency network

    we have enough money, communications technology and medical and rescue and recovery experts to put a Black Cross, international EMS into effect!
    As Global Warming has been effecting all Black communities around the world

    we still need an international EMS, by now

    I feel you bientempo, this global warming issue has truly gripped the entire planet in paralyzing fear and blind terror. More feared than nuclear winter.

    But how do they handle the "Africans " down there ? I say Africans cause as the first Black nation to fight for independence they should have been allowed membership to the AU https://www.undispatch.com/haitians...ights-catastrophe-no-one-is-paying-attention/

    The fact that Haiti was not allowed membership in the Africa Union you should take up with the African Union nothing to do with the Dominican Republic.
    As an exercise ask a Haitian on the island if they are Haitian or African.

    As far as their statelessness that is a non starter as they were never citizens therefore nothing was stripped. We did offer a regularization program an the main roadblock was the fact that Haiti would not or could not issue documentation to their citizens. With such excuses as we don't have paper to generate the ID's or passports using that logic they are undocumented in their own country.

    Neither the Dominican Republic or Haiti have birthright Citizenship, unlike the USA. As a matter of fact most countries do not have Birthright Citizenship. Only about 30 countries have birthright citizenship and almost all have some restrictions to it.
