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.
true. Latin American blacks did hold on to African culture , but a lot of them don't give the African culture it's probs. For instance sala was a love dance made in Africa. but they dont give Africa the credit for it the conga drums (Congo drums. from Africa ) again doesn't give the credit. the list goes on and on the put the Latin/Latino sign on it and don't let me forget about the African MUSIC they just say it's Latinmusic not African music etc...

ok why do african americans dont want to be called african americans they want to be called black now if you ask me if im black i'll tell you no im dominican you see here in the usa to be black is to be afican american is like when they tell you stop acting black or stop talking black.now growing up black americans always were telling me your not black why you trying to be black.
I can't speak for all black Americans but I think that they may not have been aware that dominicans could be black too. I live in Miami and there are a lot of Latinos that live here some white some black some Asian etc... and the black Latinos here do one out of three things Aline with black Americans,(some) Aline with the white Latinos.and turn their backs to black Americans(majority) or play both sides.(whichever convenient at the time) so that's why a lot of American blacks don't really except blacks from other parts of the world especially black Latinos cuz the don't really want to be excepted as black I've literally heard many say I not black I'm Cuban or whatever nationality. That hurts when a member of you're own race denies it so that maybe why. I personally think black ppl from all nationalities should UNITE whites do it Asians do it why not blacks

It's called divide and conquer. White and Asians unite. The come in different shades etc but they identify with their group. Black folks especially in the Americas are confused as help. That way its easier to control us.
Dominicans are Indio no black. Hahahaha

Asians do NOT do it, neither do some whites. Like for example, I was arguing with this polish guy, and then this Australian and an English guy (both white)came in and started bashing the polish dude. Then he started bashing the Russians and the English.(See what I'm getting at?) as for Asians, if you aren't pasty as hell, you aren't accepted.

whyyyyyyyyyy, would AA need or want to be obsessed with domincan people or their culture, outside of maybe going to one of their hair salon's or bodaga's, we AA have so much beautiful history, all over the world and so much to stand for. So why let physical diff. and language make us feel left out or inferior to dominicans they are living in the country we help build not the other way around so stop the madness, and P.S thier ancestors were africans just like our ancestors were, they are just more mixed for many reasons.us

Since you are the one asking the question, I would say that Dominicans are more obsessed over Blacks. You are ALWAYS coming up into OUR forums talking about "oh Im Dominican not Black" which doesnt even make sense because Dominican is a nationality and not a race.But all and all, who has the obsession here? Certaintly its not Blacks because your names are NEVER mentioned in AA forums NOR in regular conversation between AAs. Trust me, we got other things to talk about besides sellout, reject Dominicans

I'm sorry but yes most Dominican's are they just don't recognize themselves as back. Let's just look at historical facts. I've been the the D.R. and have been mistaken for being Dominican many times and I consider myself black. It's a fact that most Dominican's just can't accept. If you live in the U.S. the one drop rule applies. So it doesn't matter what you claim to be it is what it is. There's nothing wrong with having black blood. Black is beautiful.

I am mixed but I claim black and Dominicans don't hate black Americans they don't! I dated plenty of Dominicans they never said anything bad about blacks! And on the other side here in Minnesota black Americans don't know nothing about Dominicans they don't even know what a Dominican is! But if you started speaking Spanish oh hell you cool is hell to them! They be shock like wtf where you from! That being said let's not make this topic racial this is dumb you know!
