    Default Dominican Color/Racial Preference Findings

    I found an old article in the no longer circulating Rumbo political magazine. It deals with how much racism and anti-Haitian sentiment existed in Dominican society in 1995, based on the results of a Gallup study. It consisted of 1,200 Dominicans nationwide, all over 18 years old and was conducted between March 22 and April 1, 1995. Keep in mind that with the passage of time, pro-white color/racial preferences tends to wane in favor of either indifferent or non-white, both in Dominican Republic as in the rest of the world. Since this study was done in 1995, we can only guess how things must be today.

    The questions asked and the results were as follows:

    Would you favor a close relative marrying a white, indio/mulatto or black person?
    • 56.7% Indifferent.
    • 26.2% Indio/mulatto
    • 11.8% White
    • 2.8% Black
    • 1.9% No opinion
    • 0.6% Didn’t respond

    Would you favor a close relative marrying a white, indio/mulatto or black person? (by social class)

    Upper Class
    • 67.7% Indifferent
    • 13.8% Indio/mulatto
    • 12.3% White
    • 4.6% No opinion
    • 1.5% Black
    • 0.0% Didn’t respond

    Middle Class
    • 65.1% Indifferent
    • 21.9% Indio/mulatto
    • 11.2% White
    • 1.2% No opinion
    • 0.6% Didn’t respond
    • 0.0% Black

    Low Class
    • 54.5% Indifferent
    • 27.7% Indio/mulatto
    • 11.9% White
    • 3.4% Black
    • 1.9% No opinion
    • 0.6% Didn’t respond

    Would you favor a close relative marrying a Haitian?

    • 51.2% Against it
    • 36.3% Indifferent
    • 11.6% Favor it
    • 0.9% Didn’t respond / No opinion

    Would you favor a close relative marrying a Haitian? (by social class)

    Upper Class
    • 52.3% Indifferent
    • 32.3% Against it
    • 15.4% Favor it
    • 0.0% Didn’t respond / No opinion

    Middle Class
    • 46.2% Indifferent
    • 40.2% Against it
    • 11.8% Favor it
    • 1.8% Didn’t respond / No opinion

    Low Class

    • 54.3% Against it
    • 33.5% Indifferent
    • 11.3% Favor it
    • 0.8% Didn’t respond / No opinion

    Percentage that is indifferent about the color of whom a close relative would marry, by region:
    • Santo Domingo 71%
    • South 51%
    • Cibao 48%

    Percentage that is indifferent about the color of whom a close relative would marry, by social class:
    • Upper Class 68%
    • Lower Class 54%

    Color/racial preference for the 41% that responded it mattered:
    • 46% Indios/mulattos
    • 12% White
    • 3.0% Black

    CONCLUSIONS:
    1. Dominicans are more xenophobic than racist/colorist.
    2. The Dominican beauty hierarchy favors first the indio/mulatto ideal, then the white ideal, then blacks.
    3. Santo Domingo is the least racist/colorist region, the Cibao the most.
    4. The upper classes are both, less racist/colorist and less anti-Haitian; the lower class is the most in both.
    5. This seriously contradicts what the leftist sociologists have been claiming concerning racist/colorist attitudes supposedly being stronger in the upper classes than in the lower class, and anti-Haitian attitudes being stronger at the upper class than the lower class.

    Was this your 10 year old daughter's school assignment?
    Some obvious questions that spring to mind after a cursory scan of you rbogus conclusions.


    • Which leftist sociologists were these? I would have thought that as everywhere the less educated are the more racist. Who came up with that conclusion? You? lol
    • Any why the xenophobic vs racist comparison conclusion?
    • Did the question ask about white Haitians?
    • Did it ask about poor white Haitians? Oh wait a minute, they do not exist.





    What a crock of shyte.

    This is your worst attempt yet.


    I hope your daughter's teachers are more forgiving than me.

    The percentage of white Haitians is too small to count. the conclusion is based on Dominican mindsets, not yours.

    The conclusions are the problem, not the numbers.

    I do not doubt the figures but I totally dispute the conclusions.

    Who drew these conclusions?

    Pensamiento progresivo = Progressive Thought = Liberal/Left = Sociologists study human behavior, thus, left sociologist theories are seriously put in question by the findings, as it clearly state in the article piece above.

    And the Haitians just happen to be overwhelmingly black.
    Coincidence?

    Look, we have been over this numerous times.

    White is largely considered good in the DR. Black is largely considered bad in the DR.
    Everybody knows this.
    TV and publicity on street hoardings overwhelmingly feature lighter skinned people.

    I will concede that it is colourism rather than racism but it is there and it is strong.

    Now NALS,

    Who drew the conclusions?

    Look, the whole reason for you getting out of bed and doing this today is to show that 2 plus 2 equals 5.
    You were wrong before and you are wrong now.

    And why are you not more alarmed that more than half of the population would not be happy for their family members to marry a Haitian?
    That is the real story, the lack of education and the prevalence of medieval views in the D.R.

    Good on him, and thanks for the straight answer.


    but...

    every single time i get into a disagreement with a Dominican in cyberspace, as soon as he or she finds out that i am a black person, such discovery is reflexively followed by some gratuitous insult, based on color. why is that, NALS? i worked in a company on Wall Steet that rented a space in a parking lot on Maiden Lane, which was attended by a Dominican. he was as black as the ace of spades. i will never forget his glee when Leonel defeated Pena Gomez. he told me that Pena was too black to run a country. i kid you not.
