Another Cultural Mystery

The very first graffiti I saw in the DR as we were driving from the airport was of a swastika. And then another one. And another. The word “Obama” was written under one of them. 

I’m not a Latin Americanist, and I have no explanation for this. The area we were passing when I saw the graffiti was that of very typical Central American slums with 100% Afro-Caribbean population.
