    when such consultations are being held the Afro Dominicans tend to forget hat they are second class citizens and the native Dominicans the kalinago have to be consulted for their perspective on matters such as these.
    Go ahead do you all thing , soon the time is coming when all such protocalls will be challenged in the human rights courts.
