Just something i have noticed.
Most Dominicans have at least some African ancestry. But African is the second largest component in the admixture after European, and then Indian.(its already been proven). There are plenty of white and black Dominicans (even asians) but the average Dominican is easily distinguishable from the average AA. In my opinion, they look nothing alike.
However in every race thread in the internet regarding Dominicans you will almost surely find an African American hammering away trying to prove that Dominicans are just black, and often in a RUDE manner too.
Why?

He's speaking on behalf of the majority of AA's. Most of us could care less about how Dominicans racially classify themselves.

i understand this but i didn't write this thread from scratch. You have no idea how many times i have read extremely IGNORANT comments from plenty of AA's. I would just like to hear some input on the matter that is all.

That's because the late Roberto Clemente was a Black Latino or an African Latino just as the late famous Cuban singer Celia Cruz was. Not all dark Latinos are African Latinos so they don't have the Roberto Clemente or black African look.
There are dark Latinos who are mestizos and have the native American look. Other dark Latinos have the southern European look because of their Southern European heritage. Yet other Latinos like Xuxa and Ednita Nazareo, aren't dark at all but have either total or predominanly northern European heritage. They might be the ruling minorities but they still number in the millions and should not be ignored.
When you say Latino you aren't dealing with a race-you know?

it's just odd to me that most mexicans are mestizos (white and indian) but still mestizos

but most dominicans, who are white black and indian mixed, are still considered 'black'. it just doesn't make sense.

Its not just AA's. I don't think they care that much, I'm not sure what else to classify an obvious black person as. If you have African features i.e. light to dark skin, a broad nose, course or curly hair, what makes you less black than any other Black person?
