Haha no comments here's my chance well not much of one. This is a boring post well here I'll give you an answer so you can go on your way. African americans don't sweat dominicans. Even the black women who want liight skin babies they go after puerto ricans mexicans whites etc. Dominicans to african americans look like black folks to them. I've seen tons of dominicans that look black. Since you've meantion famous dominicans here's a few that fits in the black community: omega,fuego,fito blanko,antony santos(mayimbe) puerto rican dominican(romeo santos) kat de luna,yunel shall I go on? Remember boo boo there's other spanish speaking countries other than d.r. Remember south america? Blacks are more into colombians brasilians over dominicans a small island where 85% of the people look like them. AA's never want to be called dominican that's an insult have you ever been to africa? How about the solomon isle? Dark/black skinned even light skinned blacks with wavy/straight hair light colored eyes even blonde hair. Blacks have a very diverse gene pool we can make white and asian looking babies with other black spouses. Most AA's are pro-black which means they only make babies with other blacks not black dominicans just black americans or blacks from africa. Sorry but they will just call you black and go crazy over brasilians to tell you the truth AA's are more into themselves hawiians as well. People reffer to d.r as a black country ayti was its name not d.r and haiti. In english the islands name is haiti. Dominica is a black country so I wonder who took the name dominica and said calling half of haiti dominican rep. Always remember puerto ricans are envy I have sisters who date them and like them better than dominicans. It explains all those famous dominicans either live in puerto rico or the states.

African Americans arent obsessed with Dominicans. Not even a little bit. A lot of people can't even tell that Dominicans ARE Dominicans, because some just look Black.

There are more Blacks in Latin America than North America.Who knows..Me or any other Black person in this country could have ended up in Latin America. It all depended on where the slave boats landed.

Granted our cultures are different, but the bottom line is that we DO share a common ancestry.

I have friends from the DR and love the culture. In short, I have NO problem with anyone as long as we don't have a problem between us.

It's a shame that we as blacks and others who share African ancestry are so caught up in all of this petty crap about who is what. Let's stop the nonsense and at least try to get along.

Be proud of your black ancestry and stop allowing others to try to de-value you because of it.

Some Dominicans are black. African slaves were imported all throughout the Americas, not just the US. The difference is that Latin American blacks held on to their African culture while in America they didn't.

You aren't crazy. A lot of African American men are obsessed with Dominican women or hold them to this angelic beauty figure among black women. Even though many Dominicans themselves are of African Descent (which they choose not to acknowledge, actually being called black is offensive to Dominicans, they call themselves "Indio".. to identify with Indian heritage rather than African). The fact is, black people were taught to hate their own kind. To be against one another. That's why you have the "Light Skinned" vs. "Dark Skinned" Epidemic. Black Men especially have been programmed to reject their black women and prefer an "exotic" fair skinned, straight haired and also submissive woman. They learn this through the media, music, television, everywhere in society. Also, the media like to portray Black Women as Angry, pensive, ghetto, with an "I don't need a man" attitude which does not appeal to Black men. Many of them find that Hispanic women are more willing and submissive to their men. On a final note, it might be that Dominicans are the closest a black man can away with not selling out his own kind while still having the "excitement" of a Hispanic woman.. since many Dominican women are black. Truthfully, it's all hype and disillusionment is the black community which makes it painfully hard for black women. It's sad but that's the way it is.

Also if spanish is white then dominicans aren't hispanic/spanish they are english speakers. Your ass claims to be dominican and speak spainsh but you're not white so you're not spainsh idiot blacks fcan be spainish its a fuckin launguage taught to slaves by their slave masters just like english was.
