    Default Taina Mirabal

    Does anybody know about this Domincan director? She has made a movie about the DR in NY and has some really nasty stuff, and quite ridiculous, to say about the DR and it's history. To equate Duarte with the Klu Klux Klan is as absurd as anything I've have heard. Apparently she has never been to the deep south and talked to any rednecks.

    She's been making a lot of noise. Does anybody know if she has any relationship to the Mirabal sisters?

    Taina Mirabal, is that her real name or some kind of stage name?

    What else has she been saying?

    She won't say if she is, or isn't Dominican or criolla, only that she is Latina.

    Now that is what I call a woman with a HUGE chip (no, not you) on her shoulder.

    Wow, Duarte a racist, that's a new one. He was such a racist that he formed an alliance with two other men, one white and another mulatto, to lead for the independence of the Dominican Republic.

    Duarte was such a racist that he once said:

    "Unidad de las razas Los blancos, morenos, cobrizos, cruzados, marchando serenos, unidos y osados, la Patria salvemos de viles tiranos, y al mundo mostremos que somos hermanos."


    He probably was the biggest racist of all.

    And the flag, oh the flag!

    Since the day the country was founded, the Dominican flag has always meant the following:

    Red = the blood spilled by the liberators and defendors of the country
    Blue = the ideals of progress and liberty
    White = peace and union united by the cross which touches every aspect of the flag including the squares and the national coat of arms in the center, it also represents the Cristian faith under which the country was founded.

    Como dice mi mama...ya la gente no sabe lo que se va a inventar para robar dinero de los otros.

    translation : My mom says that "People don't know how they will go about robbing others."

    Yes, she made lots of noise! Her company was the one encharged of posting Duartes pictures with the word racist on it all over the subway in NY. They did it for a week or so; there was a very big deal going on trying to find out who was doing it.

    She made this stupid movie, she wanted some atention and she's got it! But that shows how low one can go to make a name in life! She has to denigrate herself to get people's atention!

    I went to the address listed on Beverly Blvd. here in L.A. and when I asked one of the people that I wanted to speak with her; they told me that all they did for her was promote her documentary.

    It's very sad to have people like the many of you who aren't even Dominicans by blood; to stand tall in front of our beautiful island, history and beliefs; and to hear of people like Taina just trying to tear down so many years of history it is a blasfemy.
