Latino Quote Of The Day™ by Solange (Sonia) Pierre

“There is white, light Indian, dark Indian, trigueño — the color of cinnamon…There’s no recognition of Afro descent. What is black is Haitian.”

– Solange (Sonia Pierre) (1963-2011), Haitian/Dominican activist who fought discrimination against Haitians in the Dominican Republic.
