A lot of us who grew up in Atlanta in the days when it was known as the moonshine capital of the world figured that was what it was.
In one weekend in Atlanta over 50 people died and 200 went blind after drinking from the same bad batch. There was a song, "I don't want any of Fat Hardy's Tardy at My Party" based on it. He was the hillbilly producer. He claimed he had drunk some of it himself and nothing was wrong with it. I think he got time for manslaughter. I would go to "poor black Haiti any day before I would go to the Dominican Republic on the same island. I feel for all of the victims but noted that at least three appear to have been black. If you are trying to patronize your own kind, go to any other Caribbean country. Don't even think think of the Dominium Republic as being black. Once you leave the United State in most places you are not black. You are just a American and you have to learn to think that way. Go where they treat you with respect as long as you have the dollars.
