Dominican-Haitian

APRIL 4, 2010 FILE PHOTOFormer Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez is hitting New York Mayor de Blasio for being all talk, no action on the expulsions of thousands of people of Haitian descent from the Dominican Republic.

In an apparent continuation of that thought, he next tweeted, "Of two of the poorest countries in the Caribbean, like the US Embassy it's doing, instead of criticizing from outside. Just a suggestion ..."

Martinez, who helped the Sox break the infamous "Curse of the Bambino" in 2004 to win its first World Series since 1918, is a Dominican Republic native.

De Blasio is a Cambridge, Mass., native and unabashed Boston Red Sox fan. He was booed by a group of Dominican-American protesters as he walked into City Hall on Thursday. They said he should apologize for his remarks earlier this week blasting the Dominican government's decision to expel up to 200, 000 Dominicans of Haitian descent and Haitian migrants.

A JUNE 16, 2015, FILE PHOTO "It is clearly an illegal act. It is an immoral act. It is a racist act by the Dominican government, " de Blasio said.

"And it's happening because these people are black. And it cannot be accepted."

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (c.) has called the Dominican Republic's expulsion of people of Haitian descent "a racist act."

Not everyone agreed with Martinez, who also briefly played for the Mets.

"He's the mayor of New York, not Santo Domingo, " tweeted one commenter, Brian P.

Another tweeted at Martinez, "He doesn't even know what he's doing with NYC. Imagine what he'd botch up with DR/Haiti."
