I was randomly talking to a "redbone" Dominican. He asked me what was I mixed with. Looking confused, I said my black self? I'm just AA. I'm the color of Queen Latifah (similar). He said the DR is different from America because over there you're only considered black if you are really dark. After that encounter, I started hearing how Dominicans don't like to consider themselves black of from Africa...interesting...

Why the hell is she rolling the r's? 
She kept bringing up that because her hair is 'long' people believe that she is Dominican. Confused

I said to him: "You aren't black." And he replied that he is and that's where all our ancestors are from. The difference is we just speak Spanish in comparison to African-Americans. We are part of the diaspora.


i think too many people wait too late to teach their kids this if they do at all.  my niece said something crazy to me last year that i knew we as a family failed her. i was embarrassed for her and myself.




*nods*

I cant fathom why an obviously black person would think they aren't from the same ancestry of people who look exactly like them, simply because they were born in another part of the world. Ridiculous.

I don't believe the chick in the vid is Hispanic. Is there a vid of her speaking Spanish because the way she rolled her rrrrr's at the beginning was weird as hell. I didn't watch the entire video

Because they've been brainwashed for a long time. It has to do with their history. They had this dictator, Trujillo in the 30's or 40's, I think, who was a mulatto and who hated anything associated with blackness and Africa. He committed a genocide against the Haitian Dominicans that lived on the DR part of the island and put in place policies to attract white immigrants to the island so he could "drown out the black". Everything having to do with blackness is seen as dirty and they fervently deny their African roots. They could cut you if you even suggest it, lol, even if they're blue black . The history of slavery is not taught to them, in school or at home. Like you said, they're delusional.
