    As I said before I went to far by calling us xenophobic. Over population does hurt a country but I can't turn away ppl in need I wouldn't like for other countries to us away either just saying.

    Dominicans don't deny their African roots, on the contrary, they embrace all three (Euro, Taino, Afro). Also, as others have stated here, not all Dominicans have African roots or have as much, so how would they be denying their "African roots"? Or do you want to argue that a white Dominican from Sajoma (San Jose de Las Matas) has the same amount of African roots as someone from San Pedro de Macoris? Your responses are the typical, ad hominem and ridiculous accusations against Dominicans used by the race-obssesed Afrocentrics coming out of colleges and universities in NYC such as CUNY.

    You really want to use Sammy Sosa as an example of Dominicans lightening their skin? Tell us, how many Dominicans do you know that have actually done this? I know the response will be none because it is not an issue in the DR. If you actually knew what you were talking about, you would know that skin bleaching is an epidemic in African countries and some of the non-Spanish Caribbean islands, not the DR. Additionally, the Dominicans that classify themselves as 'indio' usually do have some traits that are similar to indigenous features or their complexion. If you really are Dominican, you would know that indio is usually used as a term for skin color and in no way, shape or form a way to deny African ancestry, as a matter of fact, one of the most revered terms is 'morena', or will you argue that a lot of Dominican songs don't pay reverance to 'morenas' or that it is usually a term of endearment/flattery, so tell me again, how is it that Dominicans deny their African roots or downplay their blackness? What Dominicans want is for outsiders and their Dominican allies to stop trying to impose their views of race and identity on Dominicans, as we have always embraced our triracial identiy and don't subscribe to a 'black/white' racial paradigm.

    Yawn...

    Coming back to the Venezuelan, since that's the topic of the thread, the much whiter Venezuelans are now complaining that the Dominican government is mistreating and deporting them, plus making it hard for them to regularize their migrant status, while they noticed how the Dominican government did everything to give documents to the much blacker Haitians, even the one's that didn't qualify for the regularization plan.



    The aptly named ViewFromNYC, please take your arguments to another thread. Thanks!

    This one was posted last April. Immigration authorities in Santiago caught, among Haitians, two German guys that were not able to show proof of their legal presence in the country (passport, cedula, immigration papers, etc.) The result? They were taken to where ever illegal immigrants are taken in Santiago to prepare for deportation.

    This is probably what the Venezuelans are complaining about. This video can also be a warning for those expats that don't have their migration status in check or even those that do (including tourists), to always carry documentation that proves you're in the country legally either as a resident or a tourist, in case you are stopped by immigration officials.

    According to ViewsFromNYC, the two Germans would had been left alone in the DR for being white, blonde with blue eyes.

    I have been married to a Dominican woman for twenty years and live in the DR. She has numerous relatives and they come in all sizes and shades, rich and poor, educated and uneducated. I know a number of Dominicans that use lightening creams, but most of them use that to fix bleamishes caused by the sun. I have talked race, and nationaism with many Dominicans, as well as discussing the Haitian problem. There is far less racism than a fellow like yourself seems to have. Sammy Sosa , do you think he is racist?

    I don't have racism problem, i don't care what you are or where you come from but I have heard many Dominicans saying things like " en mi casa negro yo solo" but that person is purple black, I'm from Santiago & in my area we're pretty mixed and I love it. May be I didn't quite explained my self before and for that I am sorry. Like I said I love DR but I wish somethings could change.
