Why are Dominicans ashamed of being black. Like Sammy Sosa that painted his skin white with some powder and drugs?

Please black people stop claiming Dominicans or forcing them to identify as black because it doesn't benefit us in any way at all. Let them go and identify with white people and see what they think of them. Let them go to KKK rally's and see if they are welcome there. It really doesn't help us begging Dominican cancers to say they are black.
