meh that's fine

if black means AA to them then I can see why they don't claim it

I only claim AA, because well I am AA


see the problem i always seem to get stuck with is that people keep trying to convince me that their countries dont see color.  its like people come to america and all of sudden no racial divide occurs in their country.

I really wanna check out the DR soon cuz I hear this a lot, folks as dark as Akon talking about "I no black papi"


pretty much... 

someone was trying to explain to my friend while i was there that it had something to do with the Haitians...but the explanation was so long and drawn out I just started to gaze at the scenery. 


I'm not too familiar with the history between DR and Haiti but I read something about there being a massacre of Haitians in DR and even dark skinned dominicans getting caught up in it. Since then dark skinned dominicans like "I no black papi"


That is correct, except for the "since then" part. They have had a hatred of anything remotely black/African throughout their history, way before The parsley massacre. When Haiti became independent, there was very legitimate worry that the Europeans would come back and bring back slavery by going through the DR. So Haiti invaded the Dr for a period of 22 years and abolished slavery on that part of the island. For the disenfranchised, that was actually a good move. Some non-indoctrinated Dominicans recognize that Haiti was instrumental in getting rid of slavery (it was still there, even though Dominicans will claim that they had completely transitioned to a ranch/cattle type economy instead of a plantation economy (they tend to do a certain amount of slavery denial, too). This is where the hatred of Haitians come from. The whites at the time were salty as hell about it and didn't accept that black people would occupy them. Coupled with that the visceral hatred and disdain with anything related to Africa and a self-hating half Haitian dictator (ironically) who ordered the Parsley massacre in the first place and tried to whiten the race, and there you go.

I need to read up on Brazil. I have some knowledge but not enough.
