Will go to Hell, you rightly said "Dominican pas machande" because the most destitute Haitian will think several hundred times over before engaging in prostitution, selling drugs, work for organized crimes where as Dominican will do it without thinking.

Ask any Haitian good taxi driver to bring you to the so called "Taliban nightclubs" in any vibrant city in the US;after you get there find out, find out where those so called "Taliban women" came from since they don't speak Pashto or Dari but dominican.
