He looks at least 75% black in terms of his heritage, but something about his face still looks Caribbean to me despite looking mostly black.

Must be the Taino blood.

By him being Dominican ,wouldn’t he take offense to being called Afro anything?

It doent make much sense since nearly all Dominicans are part Afro, but he looks it more than average, or not?

I read 68% of Dominicans are at least partial Sub Saharan African descent which still means 32% don’t have any.
