Best Answer

One side of the Island was colonized by Spain and the other by France, nations that were rivals, so that gave Dominicans a national pride they had to prove to Spain and the same for the Haitians. Dominicans, as a group, generally came to identify with their Spaniard/ European roots (and Taino roots to a lesser extent) more strongly than they identify with their African roots. Haitians identify with their African roots and with some French cultural heritage. Hence, the two countries are culturally and linguistically very different, causing additional conflict.
