First, I am African-American, lighter but not that light, more brown as are most Dominicans. What gets me is the fact that they claim Indian and white descent And are offended if you identify them as black or even of african descent, but 90% of Dominicans assume that I am one of them. 90% of the Dominicans that I encounter in the course of the day, will speak Spanish to me at first. Dominicans need to be thankful for their african ancestry as much as they accept European and Indian. As for Dominican ladies, you go to the salon to relax your hair. Your bodies are very shapely and definitely african in nature. Everyone knows that you are black for the most part. And u appear to be ignorant and uneducated to think otherwise. And another the first african slave revolt was in Santa Domingo early in the 1500’s.
