side note to all reading this conversation: i never stated that majority of l. america is black. i never said that latinos in general would be considered black in america. what i said were that the majority of pr/dominicans have some trace of african ancestry. therefore, most would be black in america (provided ppl knew your family and their history)

I be tripping out because my family is from Jersey and I`ve been to NJ/NY over 10 times and you can see a clear difference between a PR and a Dominican.
Here is the trip about Trujillo though? His Grandmother was Haitian.
Trujillo sent his henchmen after my grandfather fled to Haiti met my beautiful French mulatto grandmother my input that the majority of dominicanos are black most are lightskin period

Yeah you've seen firsthand then the Dominicans and Puerto Ricans. I've never been to NY before yet nor Jersey, but will be. You don't freakin say! Where is a link stating Trujillo's grandmother was Haitian. I don't doubt it, but that's too bizarre to even think about based on how he treated Haitians and any blacks in Dominican Republic. Much like here in the states how whites treat blacks when some whites indeed have people in their blood-family who are black or of African ancestry.
If Hitler was 1/4th Jewish then nothing surprised me about Trujillo. He was alive when Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini were around. I`m sure he got some ideas from them.

Oh I am positive he's gotten some of his sick ideas from Stalin and Hitler, no doubt about that. He was a nasty dictator of the Dominican Republic. Have you ever seen the movie call In The Time of The Butterflies? It has Selma Hayek in it and James Amos (I think that's his name) in it who plays Trujillo.

I don't agree with the label African-American. There are Libyans, Egyptians and others with no black skin. I am proud to be black even though I have a Scandinavian husband. Certain Caribbean countries do have a large African influence but I would not go as far to claim Puerto Ricans black!

Why don't you agree with the AA label? Just curious. But many times Charlize Theron, an Afrikaneer, have labeled herself as an African American, sometimes South African American. She does this because she was born and raised in South Africa, Africa, so I understand why some people would refer to themselves as AA.

You are wrong sir
Haiti -- Its capital is blighted with earthquake rubble. Its countryside is shorn of trees, chopped down for fuel. And yet, Haiti's land may hold the key to relieving centuries of poverty, disaster and disease: There is gold hidden in its hills -- and silver and copper, too.

A flurry of exploratory drilling in the past year has found precious metals worth potentially $20 billion deep below the tropical ridges in the country's northeastern mountains. Now, a mining company is drilling around the clock to determine how to get those metals out.

In neighboring Dominican Republic, workers are to start mining the other side of this seam later this year in one of the world's largest gold deposits: 23 million ounces worth about $40 billion.

Im sure they do, but land wise they can`t compete with US, Mexico, Venezuela, Canada etc. They have the largest MINE (Singular) but other nations have larger MINES (plural). No offense to the DR, but too many people in this thread are trying to compare the DR resources to countries the size of the western united states with different eco-systems and climates to produce a variety of different resources.
LOL...Haiti alone has more oil and resources than all the nations in the western hemisphere.

No, they don't..only in your delusional mind. Most Dominicans look nothing like black Americans...not only because of the fact you are not as mixed, but because the hispanic/Latino look is different from even mixed black Americans who simply have a mulatto like appearance rather than a mestizo one...keep dreaming.

I'm brown skin most here just consider me black with so-called "good hair".They swear I got "cherokee" in me.But you know its Taino on the island.dominicans come in all colors.My fathers side is mostly brown to dark skin with so called "kinky hair".On my mom side from the cibao(north DR)there is more mixture and lighter tone.

To say any Latin American country is a black country would be a bit over the top don't you think?

We've tried to "do something with it", when our democratic leader was going to use the wealth for the benefit of the country, that's when U.S decided to kidnap him at gunpoint, send him on a plane to South Africa, and replace him with a puppet they can control. a "few will benefit" because American big corporations have their U.N military there to make sure they get all the wealth of the land...all of Haiti's problems always goes back to America as the source.
