    Default Racism in the DR vs. Racism in the US

    Racism issues have once again taken center stage in the US news. But again the debates seem to be against a backdrop of black or white. Some have argued that in places like the DR where racism and discrimination are also in place, the dialog is none the less more evolved than in the US. That is, in the DR, people stereotype and label, but they do so with much more regard to shades of color, subtleties in ethnicity, background, culture, and family history. In the US, you are either latin, black, white, asian...etc. The racial mixing that has occurred over time in most peoples families is largely ignored in the US debate, keeping discussions of race in a remarkably "underdeveloped" and infantile state.

    Question: Could the US learn a thing or two about issues of race from our Dominican neighbors?

    There is no "race industry" in the DR for Poverty Pimps and politicians to profit from.
