    Evolution goes bothways.

    Iberoamérica is product of colonization for the good and the bad, only when some accept this they will be able to evolve.

    I don't know why it is always Black Americans that always come to the attack when Dominicans refer to any linkage to Spain.
    Whether you Black Americans like it or not, Spain is the mother country of the Dominican Republic just as well as it is the mother country of many other Latin American countries, including the Philippines.

    You guys don't want to hear it but many of us do have thick spanish blood running through us, whether some of us like it or not.
    And FYI, you as well as many caribbean islands brothers hating on us for paying tribute to Columbus just shows lack of history knowledge on your part. Columbus and his brother Diego were against any crime and abuse to the natives by other Spaniards that had little respect for them. You need to go find out the reason Christopher Columbus and Diego ended up in chains and prisoned.

    True, but it doesn't hurt to look at Spain more critically, notwithstanding, specially since some colonial mistakes on the part of that metropolis would have dire consequences for the future of this country. For example, their commercial exclusivism and the measures they took to enforce it (destruction and abandonment of the western towns, 1605) would lead to the French settlement of the western part and the creation of their plantation nightmare Saint-Domingue/Haiti, the fallout of which we are dealing with, and will have to deal per secula seculorum, or at least until one of the two states bites the dust, again.
