Dominicans like saying "nigga" and hating black people

As I move around in the Washington Heights part of New York City I'm beginning to see more and more clearly the hatred that people from the Dominican Republic have toward black people. They have been some of the most racist people I've ever been around (I think--i.e., other racists are such but often don't confess it).

Domincans like saying the word "nigga." I hear all day from Dominicans. I heard this black guy talking last night about how he beat the snot out of this Domincan dude the night before because the Dominican guy kept saying "nigga" and loudly explaining why he's not black or a "nigga."

The great irony, of course, is that Dominicans are descended from slaves just like my people are.

Here's an article about how badly Dominicans want to distance themselves from black people. Too the "racial reconciliation" folks are stuck in 1972 and don't ever talk about stuff like this.

Sad. But it's not surprising that the ones who tend to hate on black people the most are other black people. Africans and Carribeans tend to look down on black Americans, also. And within the black American community there's the dark-skin/light-skin divide.

Thats why blacks need a seperate agenda etc. from everyone else, we cant trust anyone.

I know right its so sad that dominicans are so discriminating against our black brothers i live in germany and im dominican myself but i have a light skinned complexion which means that i could be seen as a black person too if u wouldnt know that my parents are dominican im considered by german people who see me as a black man not as a latino or dominican. And i dont understand whats wrong with dominicans denieing their heritage we all have the same african ancestors but they refuse to recognize that cact and thats just sad stupid and wrong and i apologize for the ignorance of some dominicans, because not all are like that i have to admit most of us are liek that but not all.

The reason we look down on you niggas is because you glorify ignorant behavior and vandalize your own living space. Ya piss on your elevators and think that being "ghetto" (acting ignorant for no good reason) is cool. Go to a mostly black project and compare it to what a building in the heights and see the difference.

T. Roy, but I see Dominicans in my neighborhood (Washington Heights area of Manhattan) behaving the EXACT some way so what does that mean?

I feel kinda offended that you mentioned all Dominicans being racist. cuz im domnican and im certainly not racist. i have friends that are dominicans too and they use the word "Nigga" just like me. i get along well with black people at my school and we use the word w/ eachother as a term of endearment and there's no problem we get along fine.

i feel offended that you called all dominicans some of the most racist people.cuz im dominican and like i said im not racist. if an individual is racists him self no need to attach his racism to his whole ethnicity or race because of those couple of people.

It also depends on how people use the word if they say Nigg-er than it the persons motive,connotation,and sentiment behind it might be to have a rise out of the other person. But if its the word Nigg-a depending on the connotation of the speaker it is mostly used as a term of endearment.

even though they both come from the same place Nigg-er and Nigg-a mean different things. And if that kid said the word Nigga to piss of the black dude then that dominican kid deserved to get beat the fuck up cuz thats not a cool thing to do.

I'm German (mom) and Dominican (dad) (50/50), and I can honestly say that my Dominican side is racist. They not only display hostility towards whites, but other hispanics as well--subgroups in thier minds. They carry this sense of entitlement and superiority... it's really disturbing. I have cousins that are also half white, much older than myself who were teased as children for being mixed. My dad married a Cuban whore (whore because of who she is, not her race) and my Dominican family, especially my grandma showed preference over her than she did my white mom. They also don't respect black people, what a pity. In my experiences, I have found (a lot, but not all) Dominicans family or not, to be hostile, uptight, snotty, and vindictive. I use to take pride in my Dominican family/race but now see how they carry themselves. Needless to say, I like saying I'm German...

I'm surprised I didn't think of this before, but don't most central American/island nations have their own hierarchy of who is good and who is bad among the groups? I've seen it with my native puerto rican roommate in college, a visit to panama, and Mexico. Are Dominicans necessarily alone in this?

I'm Dominican nd raised in New York nd personally i don't care for black people I have black friends but they don't act ghetto nd like "niggas" its just like if I see a ghetto Dominican ills call him a hick Dominican if you act like something ill call it how I see it its not that Dominican are racist its that most of you black Americans act like fools dont get mad when some one calls you out on it but don't get me wrong their are some racist dominicans but theirs racist people all over of all races stop trying to drop it on my people only


Unfortunetly ignorance runs rampant in all cultures. I can honestly say we learn this behavior. I am Dominican. My entire family is of mixed race. Growing up it wasn't uncommon to hear " Look at those people," " Improve your race," " What can you possibly learn from them?" Education is so important in fighting ignorance.

My aunt married an African American man from Atlanta and my Grandmother did not attend the wedding. My sister and I had to hide our African American friends from our parents. Now mind you, my mom is light skinned, but my grandmother looks like Celia Cruz. Everyone assumes she's African American and it irritates her.

Personally, I believe race is the biggest issue in most countries. I lived in the Dominican Republic for half of my life and the amount of racism is ridiculous. The Haitian's living in the D.R. are treated with no respect. Most Dominicans are of mixed race and yes.. WE HAVE AFRICAN HERITAGE. There are in fact White Dominicans and entirely African Dominicans,but we are a mixed nation.

Being Dominican is not a race, being Puerto Rican is not a race. being Cuban is not a race... It is a nationality. We are a mixed race country. Everyone wants to gravitate more towards the European ancestry.

Our Dominican-American youth have adopted an air of entitlement. Using the "N" word is disrespectful and ignorant. Parents need to educate themselves first, then educate their children. When our culture starts identifying with thier race properly, everything else will fall into place. There is no shame in having African roots. There is so much happening in the world that we can stop, but first we need to accept ourselves for what we are.

We have all had an experience to one degree or another. This is sadly a deeply rooted thing. It needs to be eliminated. It starts with the parents and society. We have to stop identifying with each other based on"race".There is only one race on this planet. It is called the human race. Our blood is the same "color", our hearts feel the same joy and pain. The more we fight amongst ourselves over this the more distanced we become from the real issues at hand. The media and those that are in power want us all to be asleep. Its time to have our eyes wide open. I identify myself as an AMERICAN..and a HUMAN BEING. Lets make this a better year my friends. God Bless and Peace.

Tony, GREAT points my friend!!

Yes Dominicans suffer from major self-hate. They love telling others that they are mixed,as if they are the only group of people who are mixed.Their ex president Truillo(excuse the spelling) accepted some White immigrants group in D.R. in order to lighten up the population.
These bastards treat their Haitian neighbors the same way KKK used to treat Blacks in the U.S.
The funny thing is that they are no different from the ghetto Black Americans they looked down on. Anyone can go to Washington Heights and witness their behaviour. Dominicans are the same with Asians with comes to self hate.
Dominicans love calling themselves Spanish but if they go to Spain,they wouldn't be accepted as Spanish by the White Spaniards. They love calling themselves latino without even knowing who the real Latinos are,which are the Italians. Latinos are White Europeans such Italians,Spanish(from Spain), French,Portuguese,Romanians etc....

They create all different labels to called themselves just so they can dis-associate from being refer to as Black. Lol they keeping telling everyone we are not Blacks but Whites recognize Dominican Rep as a non-White country.

Btw Americans being Puerto Rican,Cuban etc is a Nationality,not a race.Your country of origin doesn't change your race
example Charlize Theron born in Africa, but her race is White.

"Dominicans love calling themselves Spanish but if they go to Spain,they wouldn't be accepted as Spanish by the White Spaniards."

Sooooo, true.

This is an interesting Topic. First of all Anthony don't be offended if certain Dominicans discriminate you or other blacks, just like many have mention on this post we being Dominicans, even discriminate ourselves. It has mentioned before that racism exists in all cultures, for example I had a Jamaican co-worker that told me in the old times in Jamaica the light skinned Jamaicans would have preference over the dark skinned Jamaicans and still exists to this day. It was always strange to me how a black person can dislike another black person. In high school all the black american kids used to pick on the Haitin kids, telling them that they smelled and were so black that they were purple. Plus, the word nigga is used by all races, sound kool that the rappers they see on T.V. or the thugs that run in the streets. My jaw dropped one day when I heard a white guy calling another white guy nigga. I thought me being Dominican and talking with other Dominicans( don't have all the rights) but have more rights than these white guys calling each other that, plus we sound way cooler.

My mother has light complexion and my father is dark one and God forbid I ever called him black when I was younger. He would get really angry and telk me he wasn't black he was indian, as in native indian. When I was younger I used to bring my black friends over to my house and he would dissaprove and find a way to have them stop coming over to my house.Not that it matters, but my complexion is somewhere in between.

Over the years, my decision to befriend people have become selective. Mostly by experiences and other by just feel. I can honestly say that me being Dominican, I don't like other Dominicans. Then again I'm not you're typical Dominican. The Dominicans I dislike are the loud talking,foulmouth, uneducated, and lying ones. There are many well educated Dominicans that don't fit into these categories and those are the ones I get along with. I dislike many black Americans, simply put for their ignorance. their Ancestors died fighting for freedom and I feel somewhere along the line they threw it away. Yes the black race is a strong race, but from what I see alot of them rather use their strength fighting each other. Their brute strength at that they are still in that slave mentality. With so many years in this country and so many lives lost they should have a better foothold than they do and it gets me upset when they say, oh no it's because we were put in ghettos. Thats nonsense, Jews and Italians were put into ghettos against their will and they managed to rise above that and progress, so why can't Black Americans do it?

On the other hand I have alot of respect for Africans they come to this countrt and succeed. They are really smart,hard working and nice people. They come to this country become doctors and lawyers, well just about anything. I also like other Blacks, mainly from the Carribean. People from the Bahamas are friendly and also from trinidad. Might I add that women from Trinidad are pretty sexy. Aside from that, I dislike most Jamaicans becaus. of their rude behaviour. which brings me to another point. I don't even think most of the time people dislike other people because of their skin color, but because of their culture. If they act a certain way with certain attitudes then they are bound to clash with other people. which brings me back to why I dont like alot of Dominicans.Im more prone to start and befriend a black person thats corteous, friendly, and well mannered than to some guy that wants to act tough and making me feel like hes looking down on me. In our culture its favored to the point that many men are conditioned that to be a man you have to act macho,have many girlfriends, and act rude, anything less is frowned upon. Many women are raised from a young age to either depend on a man or act like a golddigger type, asking for cash, jewelery or anything that deals with money.

I wrote this in hopes of shedding some light on our culture. Don't get offended if you get mistreated by Dominican or feel that way, because even I do from time. I just try to look beyond that and try to look for the real person, but if their ignorance is bigger than they are then I just move on.

What an interesting article ... I lived in Washington Heights last year and had to move because of the racism from the Dominicans. I never encountered such negative and extreme unprovoked hostility to such a large degree. The hatred that the Dominicans in the Heights expressed was so intense that it left me feeling so discouraged. Also, the ignorance from their racism and the way that they live is astounding. I saw nothing but filth, disrespect and violence. The children hardly ever went to school and the parents did not care. The whole situation in the Heights is really sad. The Dominicans I encountered there set back any hopes and chances to strive towards unity and progress. So much hostility hurts the soul ...

First off folks, "Dominican" is a nationality not a race. Second, "Black" is a name used to identify ones "political status" not a race. When we look at various shades of people, (dark, light or pale skin) we are seeing the "melanin" content within the skin pigmentation and we are using that to label people as, "Black" or "White". The reality is that NO ONE IS TRULY BLACK OR WHITE in the sense of "color". For example, if we were to LABEL Michelle Obama and Barack Obama with an actual color, we would say that they are more closer to "Brown". If you don't believe me, look at a picture of them and compare it to a black shirt. Same goes for "White". In fact, I have yet to meet someone who looks like my white tee-shirt. But society via the media uses these labels to create a social and political status on the people in an effort to cause separation and division...and the people always fall for this trick. Just think...What does the words, "Black", "White", "Latino", "Hispanic" mean? These constructed terms that have nothing to do with ones Race, but rather a political status which undermines ones liberty and right to freedom. Aren't all "Blacks" and "Hispanics" or "Latinos" considered "Minorities"? What is a minority? How is a person labeled as a "Minority"? Remember, all these terms have a LEGAL meaning and I am sure it has nothing to do with what most of the population thinks. Research the legal meaning for "White Person" in a law dictionary from the late 1700s and I assure you that it will refer to ones political status and nothing to do with race. So, if we are going to use pigmentation to classify people, lets do it scientifically by address the amount of melanin content within the skin, eyes, ears, hair...etc. Knowledge is Key. Plus anyone (from Dominican Rep) claiming that their ancestors are from Spain is definitely mixed with the MOORS (Dark Skin people) who ruled Europe for 700 years. This is why lots of Italians, and others folks from Spain are mixed, displaying a darker pigmentation. Watch the movie called, "True Romance" and pay attention to the sense with the Sicilian mob and the cop. You can youtube it. Its 2011, learn your story and not His-story. Peace!!!

TONY...Well said, but remember, the Moors ruled Europe for 700 years. This is why the folks from Spain have their dark hair, dark eyes and tanned skin. Watch the movie "True Romance" and pay close attention to the Sicilian scene with the cop. Like you said, education is the key. Study Melanin and Albinism and you will understand on a deep level why the pale man (not all but the ones in power) restructured the entire education system to put down all melanin dominant people. So the darker you are, the more they try to degrade. Why? Study the science of Melanin and its effect on the human body and you will see what I am talking about. Hint, Melanin absorb light and the sun gives off 7 light frequency...which means the darker you are, the more light one can absorb via the melanin content within the body. Everything is backwards in this society. For example, we use "blue eyes" as the standard of beauty when it is one of the most deficient eye color that lack the melanin content to absorb the sun light. This is why a blue eye person is more likely to go blind faster than a dark brown eye person. Also, most people on the planet earth have brown/dark brown eyes...the norm. Just some food for thought.

Don't have a problem with Dominicans my close and dear friends are of Dominican decent, very friendly caring and loving people.
My only problem with them is I can't understand why they hate Haitians... They say it is because they were held in captivity by
them, but the Spanish held them in captivity for much longer than the Haitians did, you don't hate the Spanish. Dominicans are one of the most smartest and ambitious people you will ever meet, but honestly that kind of stupidity I can't tolerate.


Racism is not only promoted by just Dominicans, but everybody. There are some Dominicans that want nothing to do with me because of my dark skin, but I am not offended, I just view it as you don't like yourself, however I don't view every Dominican as being that way. To classify every Dominican as being racist is wrong.


I'm a non-american white living in a New York City neighborhood dominated by dominicans. Some are obviously fine. Generally, they are extremely loud, racist and rude. As an immigrant myself, I'm amazed by their insularity and hatred of white and black Americans. They make no contribution to the US and 99% of them are on some sort of welfare. I don't know why the US lets them in!

I've been in Heights now for almost 2 years and it's just amazing to see. Let's keep talking. I'm fascinated by the fact that Michael sees it as well. He's right some are really cool but others are amazingly racist. I'm still mad that the dominicans sent the NYPD to my apt b/c of news that a black rapist was in the neighborhood. There were 4 cops at my door and 4 more downstairs. I looked nothing like the description but I am one of the few black guys in the buildings ("dolphins" we are called).

lol this girl i know who thinks shes dominican cuz of her dad who left her mom while she was 5... and she and her mom and grandma are the most racist white mexicans ever... i dont get it lol people are secretly more racist then you will ever know, but funny how racist people arent racist around people there attracted to...

I am a proud Dominican. I have light skin and "Black" people hair. I have never considered myself black (nor white). I dont care what type of hair I have, I am a HISPANIC/LATINA woman! Dominican Republic is a Spanish country, therefore Dominicans are Hispanic! Its really annoying always trying to explain myself to others who think I'm Black or mixed with it. yes i know that at some point one of my ancestors had African culture (or else i wouldnt have this hair) but I am not Black. My family never raised me saying we were white or black- we are Latinos. My ancestors are Filipino but I dont consider myself that either. I dont say I'm Asian. I speak Spanish therefore I am Hispanic. period! I dont hate black people and I most definetely do not hate myself. I respect all cultures- I am just NOT black. And yes many Dominicans are racist, just as every country has its fair share of racists. Haiti ruled DR for sometime until we got our independence. Since then, Dominicans cant stand Haitians.. and if you meet some of them you will know why. If so many Dominicans are against Haitians dont you wonder why? Because we live right next to them and know how they are! Just meet a couple of them and you will see. I have friends, coworkers, and even Haitian people themselves that say that Haitian people act like animals! Dont judge me for what I say just go ahead and meet one of those people. You will remember me! Not all Haitians are rude and prideful but most of them are!

Sorry!

Remember Belkys, Trujillo invented most of the propaganda history and stories about Haitian and Dominicans and destroyed the Dominican educational system at the time. Trujillo killed many Haitians also. his racism is hardly mentioned by Dominicans. There was endless violence between Haitians and Dominicans that continues today, thanks to Trujillo, and other notable figures.

The victor, the world rulers, the conquerors, the kings, the politicians, the lawyers, the teachers, the priests (you name it) of most countries rewrite the history books. The losers are not given the chance to hear their side of the story.

Therefore, racism is a vague topic because in the heart of racism lies hatred against humanity. Especially, hatred against ourselves.

Hi Belkys,

Just because you speak Spanish that has nothing to do with if you are black. Both Spanish and English are languages that orginated in Europe. Because I speak English, I do not say, I am English. Speaking a language does not have anything to do with what race you are. When slavery happened, some people were dropped off in Domincan Republic or Cuba, so those of African Decent will speak spanish, some africans were dropped off in the caribbean or the USA, so they will speak English. Not matter what you think, until you open your mouth, you can't change peoples perception of who they think you are so you should just embrace it and be proud. ;)

This all goes back to the fact that most cultures refuse to accept the Afican blood that runs thru thier viens. Mankind was created in Africa, most of the bible takes place on that great land. But since history was rewritten and Africans depicted as worthless and ugly everyone wants to ignore the facts, one of which is anywhere there were slaves their were Africans. And since African slaves had no control over thier lives white men raped women and had babies. Most (not all) people born of these forced unions have African blood, even though they now have light skin. Hating blacks and Africans means hating ones selve. Until we as a people address this there will always be problems. It's not just the hispanics dealing with this, a lot of blacks in America refuse to use the term African America. They dont consider themselves Africans. I wonder why we are the only people who left thier country and changed thier names. Irish Americans embrace the term. Yet I understand why we are confused as a people. For 300 years we were told we were ugly and useless. We were taught to hate ourselves and others in our group.Please read the Willie Lynch Letter it will expalin it all. It it time we learned to embrace out difference love all parts of the race that was created through rape and slavery. Its almost as if we are doing the same thing the slaveholders were doing to use. Now that we have our freedom, why dont we use it!

I love Dominicans and I am black! Ahhhh Dominican's, very beautiful country and people. I don't care what they think about black people. And not all of them think that because those men loved me over there and Oh how I love them back! Yay D.R. I learned spanish just so I could talk with them. "Ay Chico, Muey Sexy!" Lol

I say to hell with them and the horse they rode in on. I ain't with no one who ain't with me. Just like a previous poster said we black people in America need to stick together cause you can't trust none of these B****es.

dominican hate black for a reason reason number one you guy are dog you black people disgust me how you pist in bulidins with no problem and how you guy hate people that have better hair then you it not my fault that god gave us alot of hair like a said we are not racist still this day we still hate black people and if you black people dont like it it sounds personal yeah i like bigge smalls rick ross all of them but hate the black that are disgusting that have no respect for the girl that the only thing that yah nigga could do is smoke weed and hit girls and dont say not all black people hit girl the majority hit girl some black people dont like to do anything the only thing they do is sit their black ass in a chair and watch there football game or basketball

How can Dominicans have better hair than black Americans, when we are the same race? We have the same genes, the only difference is your white blood is from the Spanairds, and ours come from various different European cultures. For instance my grandma is a German Jew. Mostly all African Americans that have a long generation in the states are mixed. Just like you are mixed. But we know our black history and are proud of it. Just because you speak Spanish does not make you Spanish. That's like saying your Hatian neighbors who speak French are French. Are your other neighbors who speak English- the Jamaicas are English. No most have African blood so they are black. Just like Dominicans yall speak Spanish but yall are black!! Not all are black few are white, and most are mixed but in the states yall are black or mixed just like us accept and love it. You might just become a better person and love a little bit better once you love yourself

God please this is trash , i wonder why black people hate Latinos so much ? We BLACK the only different is that we know how to speak spanish and for us the world nigga is a w.e we use it like anyone us ! I'm dominican and i love black people !

Yo don't be talking cuz i'm sure as shit that u can't be talking! U say dominicans be racist but by calling dominicans haters ur the racist bitch! So shut the hell up UGLY ASS

I'm 100% dominican and have all kinds of friends here in NJ/NYC.Every race has their bad apples but damn? so much hate in some of these posts.

I've met some awesome blacks,you just have to stay away from the ignorant ones...also the dominicans,I have to say...my people's ignorance can be freakin through the roof man!

I love dominican people but it seams that they don't like or want to get to know me why I'm a white male.

Justremember that in DR there are people of all colors, shapes and sizes. I am dominican my mother is originally from DR and she is white with green eyes, my dad is from the Canary Islands and he looks arab.I don't know what that makes me, i am tan with light brown eyes, i have to say i have never thought of myself as white. Here in New York everyone tells me that i don't look dominican at all because of my skin color and yet where i live in DR there many whites, blacks and mixed.
I like people for their personalities not their skin color. Please don't include all Dominicans in your comments.

Eh Yo, I was going to ice you, but because of what somebody else wrote, I was able to calm down. To the dude that wrote that bulls#**, it ain't even true. To get into this, it's cultural expression, nothing else. Everybody has the right to enjoy the land, and partake with different people. Dominicans are realer than yall (and I don't know who you are), I'm saying that because I don't want to start a war. Educate yourself first, the same thing you're saying, so that you can speak on so many diverse subjects. What I mean by that, is in the heart, because there has been attempts to educate some, mis education by teachers that were unfit describing what they still don't know, and the origin of all is to be researched. Study and learn.

Another thing, the one didn't do anything, such as "beat the snot" out of nobody, because the way it's coming back is like he put up a cup of water, that's my word. Do not lie on the internet, before your feet are caught in a net. That dude is eventually going to feel this real strongly.

Honestly I can't really tell the difference between Dominicans and blacks. They look very similar. Why not embrace that you all come from Africa originally. Dominicans are just as poor and ghetto as black people. They all act the same. I don't get why Dominicans try and elevate themselves over blacks. Seems like they should take a look in the mirror.

Dominicans are "niggas" I don't understand why you're so ashamed of it to go as far as denying what you quite clearly are. Explain too me where your afro-hair came from? Because it certainly weren't the Spanish (not saying all Dominicans have afro-hair)
Half of my family are Antiguan and the other are European and you niggas look like me and my brother. Be proud to be black my brothers and sisters.. the black man is the most copied man in the world, the masses proved that.

P.S

From where blacks, indigenous peoples and Asians
Were once the slaves of Caucasians
And it?s amazin' how they trained them to be racist against themselves
In the place they was raised in, you kept us caged in
Destroyed our culture and said that you civilized us
Raped our women and when we were born you despised us

Thats what happened in the DR, PR, Antigua, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Cuba.. (and the rest up to Canada) basically your nothing like your slight Spanish/European ancestory and more towards your Indio/African ancestory. You say your proud Dominicans yet you wish you were like the white Spanish men that raped your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great African grandmother you negros in denial are most puzzling

gilberto loque tu dices es la pura verdad.Mas lamentable esto no necesariamente tiene que ver con la ensenansa [prque tambien este virus esta encrustado de generacion en generacion por universitarios, politicos, academicos etc. A mi parecer tambien este fenomeno adquiere sus raices con la dpminacion de su vecino Haiti en siglos pasados. Por supuesto que siendo una gran mayoria de los abuelos e antepasados, oriundo de los campos alrededor de la ciudad Santo Domingo, sus hijos crecen escuchando a estos parientes decir, hijo no te metas con esos negros, referiendose a los Haitianos quienes emigran desde la otra parte de Hispanola. Sinembargo este flagelo esbien conocido atravez del continente latino americano e el Caribe. La estupidez se observa en seguida cuando preguntas de donde procede una persona quien sus abuelos son del campo, siempre te dicen que son de la ciudad. Si sigues precionando viene a aceptar que son del campo. Es un complejo. Solamente educando los mayores y estos a sus hijos podra cambiar esta estupida y lamentable actitud.

IM 100 PERCENT DOMINICAN AND WE NOT RACIEST SOME BLACK HATE DOMINICAN BY THE WAY WE LOOK SOME ARE JEALOUS BECUASE THEY LIKE US BETTER

It is sad that people of color hate themselves when it is the white man you should hate. The white man (European, White Americanm White French, British and spainards are the reason why you nigga dominicans, african americans, jamaicans, black cubans, black brazilians are ALL stupid and messed up in the head. Black is God and God is black. All races come from Black. I am light skinned African American and I wish that I was black as Imhotep. Being black is a blessing.

no matter how hard dominican sit and say they dont have no part of african in them and they are nothing like black people all you doing is lying to yourselves. I am black puerto rican and taino indian and my son father is dominican. when his family found out that i wasnt dominican and i was having his baby they called me every name in the book, i was all kinds of hoes, bitches and black dirty puerto rican this and that.my son father's mom to this day would not even look my son in the face cause of him being half black and pr.but when my family found out i was have a dominican baby the didnt trip, they didnt mistreat him or call him names i loved him. so my point here is that every black people arent ghetto and rude but there is also so dominicans out there that act stupid and ghetto just as bad as blacks.

You shouldn't generalize a whole nation of people based on the few encounters you've had. I'm Dominican and was born there, but raised here. My whole family is 'white' but I know there's a big possibility that somewhere along the line, there's African ancestry. I wouldn't deny this to anyone, as I don't see myself as a white person like Americans. Now with that established, I've had my bad experiences with Blacks in Newark, NJ. I was hated because of my pale white skin and because of being Dominican. I was tormented, bullied, looked down upon, etc. Yet, I till this day don't feel that all Blacks are this way. My best friends are black or black/puerto rican. I wish we could all just get along without this barrier we built between us. All I'm asking is that if you're Black, don't judge all Dominicans. If you're Dominican, don't judge all Blacks or all whites. That is all.

I'm Dominican..... And I'm just a nigga that speaks Spanish! Lotta people back home aren't racist, they just naive. Even my mom use to tell me when I was little to "get myself a white girl so we lighten up our skins by mixing races" now I don't consider my mom racist, she's never been.. She's like many Dominicans, brainwashed by the white spaniards and very naive

I am a Dominican American from New York who now lives in Atlanta. I'm on the lighter side with green eyes and curly hair but am well aware of my African roots and completely embrace it. The level of ignorance on behalf of my fellow Dominicans saddens me. Do your research, yes we are of mixed ancestry but you cannot acknowledge one and not the other!! I recently had this conversation with my own father who happens to be a "brown" skinned Dominican. I asked him how he could look in the mirror and at his relatives and deny their African ancestry. As far as calling african americans disgusting for peeing in their elevators, I ask that Dominicans take a good look at their own surroundings because some of us are no better and are just as filthy!! Kudos to you Anthony for living in the Heights because I know for a fact that I couldn't!! I couldn't deal with the filth, noise, and ignorance and I am 100% Dominican.

You definitely have said what I was thinking and how I always feel, generalizing a people will NEVER be accurate of that race, ethnicity, culture etc... It is pure ignorance to do such a thing!

I live in LA, I'm mixed, look "Black" & speak Spanish. With that said, I get people confused & asking me if I'm Brazilian, "what part of Mexico I'm from, am I Salvi Dominican Puerto Rican Cuban Honduran Guatemalteca (Central American) etc...
For the most part, I don't say where I'm from o what I am; rather I let them assume o decide just to convey THAT SKIN COLOR IS IRRELEVANT!!!!!

The fact of the matter is that we (all races ethnicites etc) have ignorant assholes who can't/don't think for themselves in EVERY culture & race. This is why it is IMPERATIVE that we as an individual first realize and recognize the TRUTH, not what was told to us & what is constantly repeated to us, and understand that each person is different.

There are "ghetto" people in every race. *FYI: 1} the word "ghetto" has been,taken out of its original context over years; from the place were Jews and Italians were forced to live in improvished conditions. 2} The word "race" is a social construct that was created by the White Anglo-Protestants that stole America in the beginning of "organized civilization" in the U.S. As a means to establish a hierarchy & socioeconomic and political stratification. Thus, generalizing/universalizing a group of people is not an inteligente thing to do, nor a viable means of obtaining data that is 100% true.

I definitely have encountered ignorant cunts in my 25yrs of life! People asking me if I'm mixed soley based on my hair type & texture (fine wavy curly hair) as if I were Black only my,hair couldn't be this way still!!! TF! I listen to Bandas, Bachata, r&b, Country, Metal, Pop, Soca, Dancehall, Salsa, Merengue, Rap, Hip Hop----Can you tell what "race" I am?! I DON'T THINK SO!! (I'm sure some smartass said confused, but it's more like open)

It ABSOLUTELY, TRULY AMAZES ME HOW PEOPLE OF AN ETHNICITY O RACE WILL DENY WHAT THEY ARE, WHAT'S IN THEIR BLOOD, JUST TO BE THOUGHT OF AS MORE EUROCENTRIC!!!!! IGNORANT FOOLS I CALL THEM :)

Wake up, critically think for a change, those of you who hate Dominicans, Blacks, Whites, Ricans o whoever you hate, and see that COLLECTIVELY we are NOT all the same. There will always be a bad apple to spoil the bunch, noma YOU DON'T BE THAT APPLE!!!!

With that said, I'm done. I truly hope and pray you guys come to your senses. As for me, I will continue to confuse people with my Black skin, fine wavy curly hair, various music, my BEAUTIFULLY spoken Spanish (& Ingles), and my cultures! More importantly, I'll be making a statement and opening eyes! :)

ORGULLOSAMENTE YO SOY YO!!!!!! Cuidense gente...you're ALL my people!

'If you've got an ounce of black blood, you are black.' Do I.believe that? Yeah, 'cause that is what I erudited from my parents. Please take time to think about the question I'm about to ask: If there is something in your environment that is said or practiced frequently, do you think that person living in it would be more malleable lto negativity and other forms of vexation? Take dicrimination, for instance. I reside in this small town in Texas where prejudice attitudes emanates rapidly. The blacks hate each other because envy is the portal of desire. White people can't stand the blacks or Mexicans, but they stll kiss the white peoples' butts. Now, that is the typical environment of the junior high school I attend. The few people that are like me( aren't country,rtacist, jealous, narcissist) sometimes use racial slurs in a jocund manner, such as burrito or cracker. But if the word, "nigger" was uttered by one of my white or Mexican friends, I, and some of my bonafide black friends wouldn't take that. So, from now on, I'm going to practice what I preach and stop with.the "N" word. World, lets put nigger to and end. Lets pike the cruel adjective that means ignorance, and live as one. In the next five years I was going to go to college at SUNY to be a nutrionist. But... if people there, in Buffalo, New York ( where my dad is from) or anywhere populated with racism of any race, I don't want to flourish on that.campus. I'm not sure, but I'm positive there will be people of Latin heritage and ancestry there on SUNY campus. So if racisim is exerted.by Dominicans or.any other nationalities, I don't want to earn my degree there. Will there ever be an elimination to racisim? Will people ever be able to determine if they.fancy someone because of there personality, attitude, and character? When will the juncture come? People.clean it.up before Jesus adjudicates our immortal dwellings. God bless and vote for.President Obama... again! * If I could.vote, I'd vote for our him so someone dk it in honor of my exigency- thnx :)

I hate Dominicans!!!

Wow. I cant stand dominicans. Im not black, but i have dominican friends and i see how they treat black people. They curse and smoke and think they're cool, even though they are the lowest people in society, next to ghetto black people. Not black people as a whole, but ghetto black people, the pot smokers and rapists and robbers and felons and even the ones who sit on other peoples porches and make rude comments to anyone who walks by. Have you guys noticed that most of the commentors are black or dominican, and neither can write proper sentences (in most cases). Unfortunately, most of the american black society consists of rapists and murderers and robbers and idiots who come screaming into stores with guns and wooden planks. They cant hold a job, and dont even try to get jobs. The only way to get them to contribute to society is to put them back into slavery.

We should put them back into slavery, the black people, i mean

i am dominican this is all a lie just everyon f*** shut up and if you dnt have anything nice you wanna say about my people dont say anything at all idc if u like us or not but back of ok

Wow, this truly shows just how ignorant and prejudice some people can be. I'm Dominican, and I wrote a comment above. Am I a "ghetto" person who is a pot smoker, thief, etc. But I wouldn't expect someone like you, who generalizes about a whole group of people, to understand in that tiny brain of yours. God bless you honey.

I'm Dominican to all this people that are saying racist things and they don't even know how Dominicans are or even where Dominican republic is located in the map you need to stop talking things that don't make sense because that shows how stupid and ignorant you are PLEASE DON'T MAKE YOURSELF LOOK STUPID LIKE THAT IN A PUBLIC WAY..... Thanks :)

Im Dominican and I love it, because now I live in Canada and all Canadians men love me, they think Im very beautiful, I work at Eaton Corporation so I am a successfull person. People who hate Dominican are jealous because we are great.

Haitis is a poor black country and DR shares the same land. To say they all have no black blood is plain delusional self hatred. Dominicans complaining about niggas? Nigga please. No matter how highly you think of yourself, it's the other Hispanics who think low if your kind since they all think you're a carrying nigger blood. Even the lightest of Dominicans have nappy ass hair and thick lips. You all sure as hell act like niggas, look like niggas, try to emulate ghetto nigga culture. NIGGA!

FUCK RACISM!!!!!! HAVE MIXED BABIES!!!!

I can see the ignorance have some of you
let me explain, I was born in Dominican Republic but my father was born in USA and my grandparents were born in Cuba, my aunt was born in puerto rico the only Dominican in my family is my mother.
IN ALL AROUND THE WORLD HAVE RACIST persons!
no just in Dominican Republic, I feel very proud being Dominican, american.
I am not racist I considerer myself India clara because I am not Dominican at all But I love live in Dominican Republic u have to learn how to live in the street not all the people are bad even we are very good persons and we love to help each other.

we use to be some protective we our families and friends , we don't like the abuses. we are very happy persons that is the reason why we have more tourist than others big and potential town SO SHUT Up AND LIVE UR LIFE !

proud to be DOMINICAN AMERICAN

I've been to the DR and it's no secret that 90% of the population of DR is mostly of African heritage. With all of the brainwashing that was fed to them by the Whites is no surpised that now they're claiming to be Spanish. Black is beautiful and i'm sadden to see our DR brothers & sisters deny it. It's better to be proud of who you are than to desperately try to be something you're not. They're always going to look at you the same. I'm Sudanese, black and proud living in Canada. I've read stats and its Africans( recent immigrants) are one of the most successful immigrants in the U.S. That's no surpise because us Africans are proud, intelligent, hard working people.We waking up from the traps that the WHITE Europeans setted up for us for over hundreds of centuries. All I want to say is, my black people whether AA or DR be proud of who you are, continue to work hard even when you don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Nothing lasts forever. DR need to love their Haitian neighbours, what their forefathers did shouldnt make the present day Haitians victims of your oppression. Free yourself from slave mentality. Love my brothers and sister!

im so sorry this happened to u..im dominican and grew up wanting to be lighter-skinned cuz it was ingrained in me since i was a small child, even though im very light and have that rare "good" hair thats straight. ( i really hate all that good hair, bad hair ignorance). i finally grew out of that wanting-to-be-light mentality and now LOVE my color and would never wanna be lighter!! but...i had to really distance myself from the toxic dominican culture, its just too oppressive...i feel ashamed many times to be dominican cuz of how ignorant and conceited many of them are...but not all of us are like this cuz i was born in D.R. and im not like this, so please dont stereotype us all as this way...God bless

if it dont apply to u...why r u offended? if it dont apply, let it fly!

Ok to everyone showing racism towards black people, God bless you you are so ignorant! It's2013! I'm black and work at a call center and customers probably think Im caucasian. I'm educated and know how to carry myself. we are all Gods children no wonder the world is going to end it needs to seriously praying for you all.

Its funny that most of these sentiments were instilled by a man who was mixed himself. It was not until we were far a3way from the DR that I learned the true history behind the phenom. Trujillo had a Black grandmother whom he kept hidden from public knowledge. He used to take pancake batter to use as a skin foundation like make-up. This must have looked truly ridiculous when you think about it yet sad as well. Self hatred runs deep in the DR. We are a country of mixed race, but that does not make us Black. We are a combination of things, but we were sadly taught by a self hating bigot to embrace one. I won't go to my grave being ignorant or racist.

I can relate to racism by SOME not all Dominicans. My mother is from the Bahamas & my dad is Cherokee Indian so i have a brown complexion & ''good hair.''But I call myself a African American. Many because i was brought up that way and i love being ''Black.'' Many people confuse me as a Dominican or Cuban/Puerto Rican. Growing up in the South Bronx being asked all the time am I Dominican got annoying. But when i denied it and claimed myself as a African American i was treated different. Many thought i was in denial or ashamed and couldn't accept the fact that i wasn't Dominican. Don't get me wrong they are nice people. Many of my close friends are Dominican but I noticed if your not of the race they don't like you. I speak spanish because i took it in High School and when i heard them talking about me i was horrifiyed. Yes African Americans are known as being ''Ghetto'' or ''Ignorant'' but it's really sad to see that in 2013 we are still look down upon. They fail to see the good of us. Our President it AFRICAN AMERICAN. So many leaders who help immigrants are ''Black.'' And it kills me when they use the ''N'' word but deny there African Hertiage. Many races are racist so you can't pin it on one group. But a change must come because we are all Gods children.

New York Dominicans are some of the biggest pieces of shit in the world. They have no self respect, with their pants hanging so low that not only is their butt cracks visible, but they could also take a steamy shit without effort. In fact, if they did take a steamy shit, most people won't even notice since most New York Dominicans are steamy, piles of shit

Seriously, these people make me ashamed that we have so many civil rights laws that allow these people to be equal; yet, they want to act inferior, ghetto, like rap stars.

What the fuck is wrong with these people? Bad families? No education? Shit... someone needs to come to Washington Heights and eliminate all these ghetto, ass Dominican Pieces of Shit... and I bet you that the area will improve dramatically. These dumbasses just throw their trash in the streets and piss in the elevators. If there was a God, he would come down and bitch slap these fuckers to Hell.

Fuck the ghetto dominicans and their families, and their piece of shit culture and heritage. And what the fuck is wrong with their spanish? I've heard Mexicans speak Spanish, and frankly, it doesn't really piss me off like these DominicaNiggers. They just randomly yell in the middle of the street with no respect for others. What's more, they sound retarded and disgusting, raspy, like there's a big black dick in their mouths.... Oh wait, maybe there is... because no only are Dominicans In New York steamy piles of shit, uneducated, they are also fucking faggots.

Please do us all a favor and die you ghetto, ass dominican fuckers. And I guarantee that American Society will be so much better.

Who say that all nephilims were distroy in the bibical flood in the time of Noah,no mix blood people in the domonican are modern day nephilim because they magnify the characteractics of ancent nephalims, check this out the bibical nephilim were half demon and half human,they rape and rape there mother ,sister,nices and distance familly, invent the first wepons of war ,teach human to kill and hate,practise homosexuality. Chech out domonican people they are mix with the wordt white people known (devil) they rape the black woman get her pregnant and bring mullotto and all sort of hateful people in the world to hate there dark skin brothers and sisters,domo.ican who claim that they are white try to kill everybody dark skin in the de between 1939 and 1961 they kill 45,000 to 55,000 domi.ican and Haitian people. I have never met a white person from the dpmonican republic and I livr in a domonican area for 23 yesrs but all of them claim that they are white.

Domonicans should be glad that that the domonican republic is in the caribbean region and most of it,s neighbours is black if the domonican relublic was elsere where in the world everybody would get toghter and wipe out you all clean out of existence..most mix blooded disrespectful children of any race of people are cursed people domonican people haitians are not curse domonicans are because domonicans disrespect there familly.it is the same as disrspecying your mother and mother.domonican people should read the bible and understand that the bible call culture like domonican wicked.

IM both Dominican and Haitian! Haitians are not animals! Haiti and the Dominican republic use to be one country and it use to call hispaniola..so all this racist stop got to stop.we fucking black we descent from Africans..

There is a need for clarification because race and ethnicity are two totally different categories. Your race determines your physical appearance, but your ethnicity relates to your social group or common ancestral, cultural, traditional factor. I do not understand why statements such as "I am Dominican...I am not black." What does that mean when you make these statements?Therefore, I can only conclude that you are ashamed of yourself, and should be, not only proud of your heritage, but of your race.

Spanish Blacks are the most useless group of black people on the planet. They comprised the vast majority of african slaves, yet, have contributed nothing to our race. Other than self-hate and half-breeds...Nada! Dominicans have a lot of nerve talking smack about African-Americans. DR is a wasteland just like Puerto Rico. Spanish folk are so phony. Claim to love black so much, yet, want blacks to hate themselves. If ya'll have no love for black, get out of our faces...Bottomline!

Tyrone

Lol I'm in the term you used Tyrone "Spanish black" .in nyc !!! 2nd generation dominican American ..I will you tell you something African Caribbeans need to stick together but with that said dominicans have been invaded by Haitians before . Not gonna happen ever again !!! And yes I'm black !!!!!!!!!!!!! How can I hate what I am ? African Americans think there the only blacks in the world .. Different cultures man that's all it is .

No , just no.
