    She’s Dominican get fucking over it, they cannot say she’s black because she is not, they cannot say she is white because she is not, they cannot say she is Asian or Indian because she is not, her ethnic background is most mixed, which is what makes a Dominican she’s fuckin Dominican get over it.

    Same way Italians say they’re Italian, Nigerians say they’re Nigerians, Filipinos say they’re Filipinos, why the fuck do yall think Dominicans cannot say they’re Dominican? explain that shit?! fuck outta here

      Dominican isn’t a race. Its where people are born. Most Dominicans are a mixed with spanish, african and native ancestry.

      • kristent225 says:

        Agreed. I hate it when people say a country is an ethnicity. If she’s Dominican, she has African and Hispanic blood and possibly some white mixed somewhere in there.

        • Multiethnicchick says:

          Not every Domincan has African blood. Many do, but not everyone. Just like not every Mexican is mestizo, some are mulatto, some are just black. Latin America is diverse.
