She will look at anyone with a straight face and lay down all the genetic makeup of her blood.
Examples below;
Black,
white,
spanish,
monkey,
dog,
etc etc etc.
This is how stupid those women are and think.
? nah. lol. I'm not going around as a black american woman saying that I'm french, spanish, indio, and sht. If asked what i am, i will say that I am black, which is obvious because I have curly hair and a year-long tan and wear it proudly. If asked what my entire makeup is, then I won't lie. I will tell them the truth and that's when I will tell them about my other heritage. On forms it depends how i feel that day. Some days I may check off multiracial or even hispanic and some days I may check off black, but i've never been white. 90% of the time i won't even answer that racial question because I don't think it's important in deciding employment. There are some biracials that will do that though and go down their list automatically when asked "what are you", but it's just because they haven't found themselves yet.

'Black' is technically an American label describing African Americans. They are of African descent tho. Caribbeans refer to themselves by their Nationalities as oppose to Black to distinguish themselves from AA's. The thing is some PPL want too distinguish themselves from other groups. Foreigners have the right to choose how they want to identify themselves and to be honest, I really don't give a damn since they are NOT benefiting The AA Community.

"Talking about black power , black is beautiful and the pan african movement while at the same time you guys( mostly AA females) date out of your race to have biracial babies with light skin and good hair."

That's not true, mostly the black men do that (there are statistics to prove this) due to years of ingrained inferiority complex, but that's an entirely different topic. But see, we as a race can do that (breed with whoever we want) because at the end of the day, when that good-haired baby pops out, American society will condition it to recognize it is black and not a "dark cicada" like in the DR.

Also, don't pretend like you dominicans aren't smokin that same sht when it comes to havin "good hair and light skin". The women in your country won't ever wear their afros out in public and you know it.

That's still NOT a reason for them to Identify as Black. They are NOT denouncing their African Ancestry, they are saying they don't like the label Black like some AA's don't like the label 'African' American because they are NOT African. Some actually prefer Black American. Everyone isn't going to accept the labels/Identities created by some racist European.
Exactly. Aall these lables are european lables used to divide and conquer people.

Look at a detailed map of the dominican republic and you'll see a boatload of towns, rivers with Arawak names and some with African names, such as Lemba(egyptian priests) in San Juan de la maguana where my grandmother On father side was from(R.I.P), Marimba(igbo) in Monte plata.The first major slave revolt took place in Dominican Republic's hills in 1522. These Maroons were originally from the senegambian region of Africa; of which most were Muslims of the Wolof nation. Many centuries later the Maroon populations became so large that the only way whites could travel would be in large armed groups. Most of the Maroon populations established themselves in mostly in rivers, hills/mountains, coastal and in caves. The Congolese people were known to be very aggressive and naturally strong, they and many of the Mandingas, Wolofs, and Fulanis were the main ethnicities to have been born in Maroon village.

Akan, Yoruba, Igbo, Ewe, Fon, Mandinga, Wolof-Fulanis and Others. The Congolese-Bakongo tribes has had the most dominant culteral impact in the Dominican Republic today. Known survived religions are the Regla de palo, Arara, Dominican Vudu, Dominican Santeria etc. Many villages among the Dominican Republic have kept their African languages among their descendants. Recongnized African languages spoken by Dominicans are the Lucumi language which is practically the Yoruba language with very few Spanish words, the Kikongo language is still spoken, especially in places like Villa Mella, Dajabon(where my great grandmother is from), Altagracia, and Monte Plata. Merengue is the typical music of the Dominican Republic, it is believed that the origins of merengue camefrom a mixture between predomanitely Congolese origins along with some Igbo and Yoruba influences. Typical Dominican foods such as Mangu (mashed plantains) is of African origin.

No, i'm black. lol I don't think anyone would deny that i'm black. I met some puerto ricans that called me hispanic/puertorican, but that was because they had issues with their own african blood when i called them black. So in the end we just all looked like a bunch of confused "mixed" people arguing over a table about our identity while others who looked more african (we were at an all-minority event), just stared at us like "wtf".

Yes i think you getting the point. DR is very small compare to the U.S. We had three different race group at one time living in that small tiny land. and guess what? they all mixed up with each other. There was no "black only community " or no segregation in the DR. WE all lived together and we all share the same culture. In U.S the whites kept distance from you people after slavery. Black established thier own communnity where there were less whites. U.S has more land for black to be away from the whites.. D.R is small.. we all mix together and learn how to live together.
You said you have seen plenty of light skin haitians with curly hair? This country is filled with million of illegal haitians.. and i been to haiti before and i have never ever seen a light skin haitian with curly hair in my life.I you making it up.
lol! You are funny. I have Haitian friends and plenty of them are light skin although the majority I've seen have been really dark you need to get out more. You are WRONG again first an foremost the race mixing started during slavery when white slave masters would go rape or force sex on their slaves. This union produced many many bi racial children but the master was so hateful that he made his own children slaves because to him their blood was tainted. They were house slaves and the pure Africans worked in the fields picking cotton. I see you just don't understand that we have been mixed with white blood for over 400 years. What do you think happen after slavery the bi racial kids were still considered black and were not allowed to speak of their white blood they lived with other blacks that's what you don't understand. Some black people after slavery stayed and pro created with Native Americans. Now we were mixed with them as well but the MAJORITY of us had masters blood in us. The bi racials sometimes mixed with each other and in most cases married other full blacks. Their kids would come out brown skin and light skin remember mommie was bi racial with curly hair. The kids would be born with curly hair sometimes And kinky hair sometimes. Genetics is a mixed bag. That's why you sound really uneducated when you say the majority of us are just black not true. 85% of African American have white DNA/blood. No different than the spaniards having sex with their slaves DUH and making mixed babies. No different than the Tainos having sex with Africans. Black in this country means anyone with visable African ancestry it doesn't mean the person is 100% African that what you don't seem to get. Even after slavery white people and black people were making babies in large numbers. Those babies were still considered BLACK why? Their blood is tainted. You just don't know our history and you are thrown off by the Term BLACK

Theres just as many in different colors as there are the dark ones. As the only Haitian here, i know them better than anyone, and this is how it is. This video is a comprehensive view of all the different kinds of Haitians there is on average.
1:05, 1:31, 2:05, 1:55, 4:45, 5:36 and 6:09 make up the majority, 75% of the population. 0:50, 20%-- 6:13 and 3:12 make up 5%.

There are many Haitians who look like Dominicans. Case in point, 3:05, and 3:35- these Haitian women is what the average Dominican look like



But most of the time Its easy to tell Haitians and Dominicans apart. Most haitians look like African Americans and Africans. With mostly afro and sometimes loose curls. Most Dominicans look like mixed people with loose curls to straight hair.
