Ethnicity VS Race wrote:
Before making your comment about what "race" Dominicans fall under, please pick up a dictionary and look up the meaning of those 2 key words.
Race: Noun:Each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics.
Ethnicity: Noun:The fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.
With that said, DOMINICANS AREN'T BLACK! Not by culture and not by race!
What is it with AA wanting to claim EVERYONE with some color to them?
I'm Dominican, my primary language is Spanish, my cultural background has absolutely NOTHING to do with AFRICA and according to the definition of RACE I'm not BLACK!
Boy are you stupid. Perhaps you should re-read your definition of "Race" (SLOWLY this time...). Which "major division" do you belong to?

The HIspaniola was colonized by Spaniards, French, North Americans, Jewish from all over the World etc...Then..way after European colonization, padre as casas introduced the black africans, they worked and were baptised christians. So.....we are mostly caucasian and some of us got mixed with blacks from the virgin islands and or Africa. The island is the Hispaniola, their people are hispanic. They are latinos and or hispanics and the ones mixed with black are mulattos. Not black. Except the haitian descents, those are black.

As a person of 100% Dominican heritage, I wanted to finally put to rest the ridiculous ethnic assumptions and took a Genetic DNA Test. My results are in.
African (Mali, Cameroon) 49%
European ( Iberian Peninsula) 36%
Native American 7%
Near East (Middle East 5%)
Central Asia 2%
Pacific Islander 1%
Moral of the story is that Dominican republic is a multi ethnic society. We are of mixed race just like we have been saying all along.

I didn't even have to read the whole nonsense of a post to understand you're having an identity crises. You're Dominican, No one can deny you are Latino, Congratulations. Now be honest with yourself, you'll feel a whole lot better and won't feel the need to prove how non black you are. But lets be clear. Being black is about your race and descendants of Africa and being Dominican is about where your ancestral slaves were dropped off. Dominican is not a race. Period. Did you know more than 90% of Dominicans have African Ancestry? The truth of the matter is, it's irrelevant to the issue whether you speak Spanish, have thin lips, good hair, eat sancocho, whatever. That's what you call evolution and mating. No matter how you slice it your DNA traces back to Africa. The real issue here is not to prove how Dominican you are, or to identify yourself outside of black. It is self hate and brainwashing by society and your own peers. There are Dominicans darker than Midnight who would use there last breath to prove how they aren't Black or have no traces to Africa. It's laughable. The proof is in the pudding honey. Just look at your neighbors, Haitians. Do you think they aren't black or African? No, they just got the unlucky half of the island right? Get over yourself. At the end of the day.. your ancestors bled the same blood and cried the same tears as those that got dropped of in Haiti, Jamaica,
Cuba, etc.
Wow...somebody finally spoke the truth. Get over it the majority of the people in DR.... are jjust as black as black Americans. We are just proud to be black in this country and we celebrate. are African heritage. it's crazy how Africans were taken from Africa dehumanizedit but, you guys are trying so hard to be white....lol DR and puerto Rico is not a race....I just laugh ignorance is bliss..... any race can be Latino dummies.... white, black and Asian. who is in mix I don't have nothing here my hair is wavy and black and curly and I'm a black American Wow

Dominicans don't all look like Sammy Sosa, many are white or white-ish. But the the majority of us are mulatto-looking. Dominicans are only black if you filter out the bulk of us, which makes no sense.

@Le trou de balle you wanna hate on black people because of your hate towards Haitians...FYI NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE HAITIAN! I don't understand some Dominicans, they reject being called black,but yet they adopt the AA culture and lifestyle throuhg the way they dress and the music they listen too. Make up your mind either embrace all of black culture or none of it. Many Dominicans dream of going to America/Canada if they only knew how the black culture is embraced in these countries...the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice!!!!

Dominicans don't deny having African roots, it's common knowledge that is taught in Dominican schools. It's just awkward when people keep dwelling it. Dominicans are more Caucasian than they are African anyway.

Also, Dominicans don't want to be associated with African Americans, that's why they reject the "Black" label. It's really not that complicated.
And for the people who say that we steal Afram culture and style, thats mostly bullshit. Dominicans have their own style. Some may dress like Aframs but thats part of blending in with whats constantly around us. America is also a media superpower that influences other countries more than we influence them.

I'm African American and I live in America. I think it's really funny to read all these DR saying that AA want them in their race and culture lol. AA want nothing to do with DR. We don't claim any of y'all cause you guys aren't African nor African American. Just like Zoe Salamada or however you spell her last name. She's DR and PR yet she keeps saying she's black. She's. It black lol. She's Latino or Latina. African Americans are proud of their race after our President is AA, why would we want to be associated with some multiple race like DR? You guys are a bunch of mixed pups. It's cool that you guys claim your African roots but you're. It African and your not African American and never will be lol and the African American community wants nothing to do with the DR community lol. It's really funny, I was reading someone else's post and this girl said that AA want to be DR looool. Most AA don't even know where the Dominican Republic is. If you're DR and you go to someone who's AA and say you're AA their gonna look at your like you're dumb cause you're not. And no you guys aren't black either. Some of y'all just dark skinned and some are light skinned. But you're not black because black is associated WITH THE AFRICAN AMERICAN RACE NOT COLOR. JUST LIKE WHITE JS ASSOCIATED EITH EURPOEANS.

As for the DR that hate AA lol bitches get in line lmao. No one cares that y'all don't like us. No one cares that you can't fit in with the other Latinos cause you're " too dark " lol. Suck to be y'all.(: just watch us be amazing and listen to all our good music like rap and hip hop lol.

it says anyone who is from Northern Europe is WHITE regardless of skin color... that means a dark skinned man from Egypt is white.
it also says : "These classifications should not be interpreted as being scientific or anthropological in nature, nor should they be viewed as determinants of eligibility for participation in any Federal program." -- which means nature did not assign us these "races".... federal government did.
yet we are so ruled by politics that we fail to see it's participating hand in tearing us apart.
Dark, light, yellow, white... with a divided mindset... we are all slaves.
You're dumb as hell lol. Egypt is in Africa sweetie. Which means a dark skinned man from Egypt is African specifically Egyptian and skin tone would be golden or tan. Not white loooool. Let's use a little common sense.

Oh dear lord and one last fucking thing.
NAPPY IS NOT A HAIR TEXTURE. IT IS A STATE OF BEING.

IF YOUR HAIR IS NAPPY IT MEANS YOUR HAIR NEEDS TO BE COMBED. NAPPY IS NOT A HAIR TEXTURE

Hair textures are straight, wavy, curly, and kinky. Kinky is what AA have. Kinky hair and some of us have kinky curly hair. Just search it up on google. Every time I see you dumb DR say nappy hair it's so funny. Any one can have nappy hair because nap it hair means your hair is tangled, matted and needs to be combed. White girls can have nappy hair. Black girls can have nippy hair. Mexicans can have nappy hair. Why? Because it's a STATE OF BEING. It like having dirty hair. Not one race have dirty hair. Any one can have dirty hair. Any one can have uncomed matted hair which would mean their hair is nappy

But it it straight you dumb DR. Nappy is not a hair texture. Lol you guys are so uneducated. Even on simple things like hair. Saying nappy like it's an actual texture

" I don't have nappy hair"

Bitch good for you keep combing your hair loool.

damn you guys are all cray cray. i have to tell you, it can be disconcerting to us white people to see such defensiveness of your race and color. you don't hear us white americans saying no, no, i'm not just white, i'm german or irish or polish or french or whatever. we just accept our whiteness. i'm sorry this burden has been placed on you all. i do have an experience i know of where a dominican man was hinting he'd like a baby with a white american girl i knew. he wanted it to be male, and tall, with blue eyes, and take it back to his country, he said. he said god would be punishing him if the baby was a girl. its like if he'd had a kid with this person, he could take it home to his mama in the DR and she would be so proud. like a status symbol thing. luckily the girl wasn't interested, just as he wasnted that interested in her except as a gestational machine and someone he thought might be gullible enough to fall for it. thats what bothered me the most - she probably wasn't even his first choice, just the one he felt probably had the most self esteem issues and would feel happy that this guy wanted a baby from her. i think the fact that many dominican men are MAMA's BOYs should be a bigger concern to you all. chew on that, papi.
