Even that gorgeous Dominican model (Arlena Sosa, I think her name is?) talked about the ugly prejudice she went through from the fashion industry in the DR when she was trying to make it as a model. And yet, she ended up being the face of Lancôme. She insists on saying that she is black and proud of it.

^^I love the first one. They would think she is the ugliest thing that ever walked down the earth.

I also know someone (a Haitian woman with light skinned and hazel eyes) who went on vacation in a resort in the DR. Granted, that wasn't a recent episode, at least 20 years ago. But when she got into the dining room, some important white Dominican locals strolled in and the waiters had the nerve to ask her to move to an inferior table! Of course, she refused. But that says a lot.

then came trujillo and cemented it, as he was hitler status in his hatred for haitians and blacks. since they killed trujillo the country remained under the rule of one of his proteges, so its only in the 90's that the grip of white supremacism began to let go. it hasnt yet. they still run sh*t.

the DR is pretty much the birthplace of modern blackness as we know it. all the "good hair" , "bad hair" bs, the colorism, the tactics used to subjugate, divide and conquer black slaves all over the world, were honed in there 1st and then spread thruout the rest of the americas. unfortch they have been so isolated that it will take several generations to even semi-phaze out.
