Its negative to say all Dominican's are black. black is a skin color that shouldn't be mixed with to race. there is a difference between race and color. Most Dominicans for the large part of Mulatto (mix of African/Taino/and a little white)
Contrary to what you said we are usually mix of White/African/and a little bit of Taino, so please stop talking about things you obviously know nothing about.

I am a very light skinned dominican, light eyes, light skin, and light brown hair. That being said, I've always known that I have African heritage as I am not blind and I see the rest of my family comes in all shades from lighter than me to very dark. I think that the disparity between AA and Dominicans not wanting to associate as being black, is deeply rooted in the culture differences. Culturally we are vastly different , our customs are different etc. and seemingly this is why most Dominicans do not want to be associated with AA, I really don't think it is the color issue, more of a cultural issue. Any Dominican that I know and Ive talked to, recognizes our African heritage, from our food, dance, folklore, etc, but do not associate or relate to AA on many levels. Also, we have strong Spanish influences that have remained, and we have had many other cultures influence us. We embrace the cultural differences, and we do not go by the 1 drop rule imposed in the US. Yes there are many ignorant people that will say they do not have African blood, but as light as I am, on forms ( including the census) after choosing Hispanic/Latino, I choose Black, White and other.

Sorry to break it to you, but Dominicans ARE black. You may have been brought up with Latin culture, but your race is still black. However, you two are both so ignorant - which is made very clear from you comments about big lips, big nose, and nappy hair - that I just wanted to take the time to THANK YOU for not claiming to be black.
Not all dominicans are black because od there ancesters and decedents some have spanish (spain) decendents and have green and blue eyes like my mother so not all dominicans are black

First of all black is not a race it's a color ppl really get that fucked up. If u r Dominican with dark skin or Cuban puerto Rico any Latina with dark skin u r black! Point blank! And if u r lighter skinned u still could have more African ancestry. It's just all genetics. People think african Americans have full African DNA and this is not the case for anyone. We r all many things!

You don't get it, do you? im not latino "dumbass punk" but my mum is from Dominican Republic. I made an example of DR because Puerto Rican is similar to DR and I dont wanna be latino......... OK what about (black point or mozart la para) they look like proper african to me..........

Also if dominican rep is latin america so is jamaica,cayman islands virgin islands,trinidad&tobago. They say its of the latin american region but your island which you're american not born there is called hispanola.


You think you know what you're talking about but yore clueless. Latin American refers to countries in America that speak Ibero-Romance languages, that being Spanish and Portuguese. Jamaica,Cayman Islands Virgin Islands,Trinidad&Tobago; are Anglo-saxon speaking countries, they speak English.

I would recommend to most of you to get a book and study a little bit more about Latin History, and most importantly DOMINICAN history to understand where we (Latinos/Dominicans) came from.
Nowdays, most dominicans are very proud of their heritage, knowing where we came form makes who we are now. In fact, I remember when in school we used to make fun of how stupid the indians/blacks where and we used to hate on the Spaniards for murderers, abusiveness, and rapers. However, now, all that is somehow in the past. Now, we are 1 nation and 1 culture "Dominican Rep"!! and we intermingle with each other no matter the race. We don't have the need to call each other black dominicans, white dominicans as US have the need to differentiate AA.
Defining DOMINICANS as not black or white, has nothing to do with the color of our skin in most cases: 1. Even though that most of us has the black in the back of the ear, not all dominicans look black.
2. Is what you take as reference and what it actually means, WITHIN the island, calling someone black means REALLY dark... otherwise, you are mulato or sometimes they would say indiesito to differentiate another shade of black.
3. This let me to Black = Haitians and subconsciously dominicans don't like to be resemble to Haitians in any way, shape or form. Again, to understand, I recommend you DR history of 1820-1844. and
4. in US we don't call our self black because of the general connotation it carries. Black = AA and we are just not!! in general, we are not the same!! we don't look the same, we don't act the same, we don't value the same things, we are just not you!! But, saying this does not mean I denigrate my/your race either. Nevertheless, we don't call our self white either! We consider in general "White Americans" very boring.
Now leaving in the US, I always have found curious why would black people call them self African Americans. You are American and that's it!!! I don't see white people calling them self Irish american? Don't you see that even though slavery was abolish years ago, They still are separating you from them. Like you guys are not the same thing??
I am Dominican and I am proud of my African race,it gave me my flavor, my passion, as well as my Indian race, and of my Spaniard race, it refined me, it gave me security, sensuality, etc.. All of them gave me MY culture which is 100% different than American culture and somewhat different than any other Hispanic culture.
i know for a fact this uneducated and wanna be white/fake racist,fool here is totally confused!
one can't be proud of being black, but when called black, finds it offensive. impossible. one can't say that they are proud to be black, but yet attempt to denounce the root cause of the reason you are black,which is solely because of the haitians. at one point there were nothing but creole speaking africans residing on the whole island. so where did these so called dominicans derive from?
proud to be black? how can u, when u don't even acknowledge the fact that u r!i'm pretty sure u know it well when u look behind your ears, as you've previously mentioned. well, give a clear example of how r u proud of being black, when you're here quickly denouncing it to begin with? so when you're called "moreno", you proudly reply, "Soy negro y estoy orgulloso!"? you do that? really? i highly doubt it. and like the other fella posted, trinidad, jamaica, and barbados, along with haiti, etc,.. would also fall under latin america also then. anyway, back to you, sammy sosa would be quick to reply i'm black and i'm proud , just like yourself, right?

Dominicans are fu#%ed up in their head, both my parents are full Dominican and the problem that is causing Dominicans to love white people is similar to the Stockholm syndrome these god damn crackkkers ran up into our land and raped the hell out our people and our land took our language, our culture, enslaved us and made us worship a damn crackkker as Jesus Christ, which is bullshit because Jesus Christ as well as all the Jews were dark skinned people aka Black. Being white is a curse so anybody with a little logic will pray that they're lineage dont go back to them Spaniard animals. Since you Dominicans see that white Jesus as their savior they want to be like him cuz they think being white they'll be more like him but they don't know that is really a faggot posing as Jesus his name is Cesare Borgias look it up he's the 2nd son of Pope alexander Leonardo davinci made that painting of him. So Colombitch and his crew of demons went to The island of Quisqueyan/ Haiti aka Hispanola and made us bow down and accept that faggot as our savior or else we would be burned at the stake so now you got them believing that that paleface devil is Christ and they wish to be like him so they wish to be European like the crackkker. But if you Dominicans only knew who you are you would recognize that if Jesus Christ was alive today he would be called a Negro because the black people who came to the Americas as slaves are actually the real Jews, the lost sheep of the house of Israel and Dominicans are also part of that we are Hebrews we are the Israelites Gods chosen people who were punished and divided for disobeying him. It's time to return to your true nationality and accept that Jamaican Haitian Puerto Rican African American Guatemalan Panamanian Columbian Uruguayan we're one nation God's chosen people.

I agree that dominicans do have african blood in them, but that doesn't claim them to be black. When applying for a job we dont circle AA, we circle what we are, hispanic. Who blow this miss conception, are AA. And as for dominicans being dark skinned, and having nappy hair, thats a false accusation, yes some of us do have those physical features but many of us, have fare skin and blue eyes. My opinion about the whole thing is, that we dont want to called something that were not. Its the same for people that are Ecuadorian, they have Asian blood in them, but they dont share the Asian traditions. And i honestly feel that AA are jealous of us because were more excepted in society, and our physical features aren't as extreme as there's. I also notice that AA dont like being called ignorant, but indeed they are in this subject. Ignorance is just a stronger word of saying you dont know what your saying, why do they get so offended?

85 to 90 percent of dominicans have african ancestry and only 9.4 percent of us are of indian descent and less than 1 percent are of european descent, so why do so many of us deny our roots ?? I just dont get it. I am dominican and i consider myself black. I do not look black but i cannot deny the fact that DR was one of the first islands that african slaves were taken to. In fact santo domingo was considered the gateway to the carribean because it was usually the first stop before going to other parts of the caribbean. History made us the people we are today and I am proud of my roots and where I am from.

This is ridiculous..there are dominicans who look WHITE, there are ones who look INDIAN..there are ones who even look CHINESE. With good hair and everything. But there are also ones who look black with bad hair. and then they are ones who look black with naturally beautiful long good hair..I can just go on and on with this..but my point is that we are mixed with EVERYTHING..dominicans ALL look different. We look mixed. We are MIXED! Thats just it.. nothing else. we`re just mixed races.

Maybe dominicans deny their black side because when you think of black you think of the typical black american. The black american is fucked up they are filled with excuses,love to complain have no value for anything important. They rather worry about why black people date white people,light skinned vs dark skinned and buying shit they can't afford over the shit they need. Majority of black people have a huge chip on their shoulders and feel that everything should be given to them. Blacks have a very prejudiced mindset they talk about others all the time then get mad when another race fires back at them. They have no culture of their own and they are not willing to learn their history. Domincans may share skin color but are very different from the aa. Its american thoughts that throw anyone with similiar traits in categories. Japanese,korean,chinese they are different but to the american they are all chinese. Spanish person must be a mexican named "hector" its all stereotypes. Asian people get just as mad if you call them chinese and they are not. For christs sake aa look past color and look at overall picture its not just about being able to bachata and speak spanish its more to it. If a white person said all african americans are the same because they are black all of you will be upset al sharpton jesse jackson would be all on the television! Why is it in america any one half black or dark must claim african american? So if they didn't claim their spanish side and repped aa it would be no problem? How can they rep something they are not? Aa need to worry about becoming better as a people insted of worrying about other races because right now aa are like the lakers which means they are sorry af!

AGREED!!! Black people get mad when people speak the truth especially if the truth shows them in a bad light.
