>  8. Carnival merengue song is anti DR
> El Siglo newspaper reports that in Haiti the leading radio stations and carnival partying is to the tune of a catchy merengue that promotes violence and an anti-Dominican sentiment amongst Haitians. The merengue motivates Haitians to violence and urges them to fight against a supposed Dominican invasion of Haiti. Hate sentiments amongst Haitians are considered by political analysts one of the main reasons for Haitiís poverty. The Haitian Lavalas movement promoted by former President Jean Bertrand Aristide is regarded as a promoter of violence and hate within Haiti. Aristide during his first presidency was also a major antagonist against good relations with the DR. To read the words of the merengue in Spanish, see the El Siglo
