After the Spanish-American war and America occupied the island that the DR was an estimated 92% black (when black was in their census) to being 11% black now with NO BIG European immigration influx. Also how is the DR 11% when black is not even on thier census as a racial categorey????
The DR`s census goes like this:
Hispanic (most blacks mark this)
Taino
Asian
Mixed race (alot of blacks mark this)
White
Where is the black? Oh, ok i understand. People are reading info from the AMERICAN census bureau, not the Domincan Census. THE DR HAS NO BLACK ON THIER CENSUS.
The genetic studies done on modern day Dominicans and the colonial censuses clearly show that the majority of Dominicans are of mixed-race, you really have no argument. And the vast majority of the people in your videos are mulattos of predominantly african descent, all one has to do is look at Haiti to see what their unmixed black ancestors would've looked like.

And that census was taken during the days of Jim Crow, even someone who was 1/8th black was considered black by American standards.

If those Dominicans are black, then the likes of J Lo and Daddy Yankee must be Whites.

Exactly, that is what Dominicans would look like had they not mixed with the Europeans.

It is funny how certain afro-centrists would attribute the phenotype of dominicans on "black diversity", yet when you look at Haiti, there is little to no diversity in phenotype except for the 5% mixed-race and white minority. The Dominican Republic and Haiti both received similar types of Africans, so if they are genetically the same (pure SSA), why is it that the former varies tremendously in phenotype while this is hardly the case for the latter?

Kiskeya, although your post doesn't prove anything, I would really like to see a source.

Again, that census can not be taken seriously, when this is what Americans considered to be black in that era:

You're correct. Islands like Trinidad and Guyana, are heavily mixed with Indian, Jamaica is mainly african descent, but a few of us may have an indian, chinese or white irish/scottish background.
From what i see, it's mainly the spanish speaking islands that tend to be very mixed. Especially puerto rico and cuba.
You need to inform yourself . Otherwise your comments might be rightfully considered as worthless mere opinion.

Some of them can pass as light skinned afroamericans but they are still mulattos/mixed race! The only difference is that ight skin afroamericans are mulattoes but in denial.

just a little food for thought. Who decides about white and non white.
In re Najour.(This case is reported in its entirety in every U.S. law library under the index 174 F. 735.) Ruled in 1909 that Syrians are White. Decision based on scientific evidence.
* In re Mudarri.(176 F. 465) Ruled in 1910 that Syrians are White. Decision based on legal precedent (the precedent being Najour).
* In re Ellis.(179 F. 1002) Ruled in 1910 that Syrians are white, despite scientific evidence presented showing that they are not true Caucasians. Decision based on "common knowledge."
* Ex parte Sahid.(205 F. 812) Ruled in 1913 that Syrians are not White, never have been White, and that all prior decisions granting them Whiteness were in error. Decision based on "common knowledge."
* Ex parte Dow.(211 F. 486) Ruled in 1914 that Syrians are not White, and cannot become White by assimilation or intermarriage. Decision based on "common knowledge."
* In re Dow.(213 F. 355) Ruled in 1914 that Syrians are not White. Decision based on the Court’s understanding of Congress’s intent as to the definition of Whiteness.
* Dow v. United States.(226 F. 145) Ruled in 1915 that Syrians are White, have always been White, and that all prior decisions denying their Whiteness were in error. Decision based on scientific evidence presented showing that they are true Caucasians.
* United States v. Ali.(7 F.2d 728) Ruled in 1925 that Punjabis are not White, not even the Punjabi in question who was born an Arab in Arabia and simply moved to Punjab. Decision based on "common knowledge."
* In re Feroz Din.(27 F.2d 568) Ruled in 1928 that Afghanis are not White, not even the Afghani in question whose family moved to Afghanistan from Arabia. Decision based on "common knowledge."
* In re Ahmed Hassan.(48 F.Supp. 843) Ruled in 1942 that Arabians are not White, have never been White, and that all prior decisions granting them Whiteness were in error. Decision based on legal precedent

I guess you are totally ignorant on the methodology used to gather demographic statistics. Your method is totally unscientific and illogical. It's what's referred to in logic as card-stacking and because of it has absolutely no real value except to perhaps entertain. Or maybe as an example of fallacious reasoning. Nothing more.

There are very few, if any mestizos in the dominican republic, the majority of Dominicans are triracials who more often lean more towards the mulatto side. And no, there mixed race dominicans do not come from some special "elite" who somehow have a completely different genetic composition as the general population as you try to imply be saying they are "taino/english/french combinations". How did you even come to this conclusion? There were virtually no English people in the Dominican Republic, except of course, some isolated incident where some random english sailor or pirate crashed on the dominican shores and decided to settle there. Not to mention, that only 500 Tainos survived and they all ran to the mountains.
The main contributors to dominican genetics are:
Spaniards
Africans
Portuguese
French
Taino
Wha?

Did I not say basically that Dominicans can be the descendants of more than 1 or 2 ethnicities (as in triracial, as you call it)?

Also, I NEVER implied that their mixed race is the result of some 'elite' genetic combination - THAT'S YOUR IDEA, NOT MINE.

I am not here to give a history lesson on Dominican culture; as I stated, I was there for a week in the spring and much of my post came from research, and some from speaking with the Dominicans. My post was not very different from what you stated and quite frankly shouldn't have gotten your panties in a bunch.
