      You guys are making a big deal for nothing. Dominican do not embrace Spaniards as you make it seem. You’re just asumming stuff you read in the internet. You all don’t even know what you’re talking about. Liars!

    @Hola mari sanchez no se porque los dominicanos aman mucho los spanoles.I don’t understand why dominicans love their spanisch blood i am from spain multiracial my grandpa is spaniard of german ancestry but i don’t worship spaniards.I met a dominican girl in spain there alots of dominicans over ther she told me she was taino and spanish but this bitch look mulatta she looked half black and white and she is not very light she ignored her african roots .Yes i don’t like the one drop makes you black rule in america by the way i am also part latina i am everything , but claiming and worshiping spanish blood when spaniards are racist that is self hatred, i am from there so i know what i am talking about not all spaniards are racist but many don’t like latinos a dominican women was killed by a spanish police men because he was racist .I don’t understand why hate the africans and love the spaniards who hate being mistaken for a latino ?

      nosotros no amamos a ningunos espanoles ni lo idolatreamos, mentirosa, el dominicano promedio tampoco se la pasa mencionando su mitad espanola como tu estas queriendo decir. el dominicano se identifica con su nacionalidad y punto. ademas, a diferencia de los afroamericanos y otros afro-descendientes nosotros no obtuvimos nuestro componente europeo by rape y tenemos suficiente herencia europea para reclamarla. ehay dominicanos que son blancos, hay otros que lucen quadroons y muchos tambien lucen triraciales y hasta mestizos. entonces, cual es el problema que tienen ustedes con que nosotros rezconozcamos nuestra otra parte? porque tengo yo que adorar nada mas mi parte africana y negar las otras? que acaso no es la misma clase de denial? recua de hipocritas es lo que ustede son!

    I see some jealous AA inventing stories about dark Dominicans… Most Dominicans aren’t dark. Just take a walk in any Dominican neighborhood and see by yourself.

    • Amber Berg says:

      How are we jealous when African Americans and majority of Dominicans have African blood- we both have African blood so what is the problem- African Americans are just as mixed as Dominicans dont think you are better. You come from a country full of black people- however African Americans dont- our country is full of white people and other races so I think we can claim multicultural as well buddy- Im your black sister okay black brother- lol now dont kill yourself
