Word has it that many Black Dominicans deny their "blackness" by holding on to their Hispanic culture and they're known for looking down on English speaking American Blacks. "Hispanic racism" goes both ways.

However, my brother has friends who have gone to prison for drugs.

Alot of Black people don't want to be around that culture. Many times it works, they get away. Other times, some of the hood rats Black people try to avoid follow them into the suburbs.
Agreed. PWT are "anglo white" hood rats. The weird part is many white and a few Black people now call themselves "Rednecks" cause it means a plain talking "country" person in 2012. In 1960; "Redneck" was the same level as the N word.

It's not considered a bad word. I went to high school with people who were proud to be "rednecks". I find that culture destructive. I've been at the receiving end of bullying from some people who proudly thought of themselves as "rednecks".

That is racism, sure, but it is the racism of self-hatred. Blackness is still blackness no matter who the colonizer was.

That would be illogical....Dominican is a nationality, not a race.

Thank you Mrs. Calipoppy! For some reason other races think that blacks are supposed to control other blacks, they still don't get how we are individuals. There are plenty of decent black people from where I am that stands up against black on black crime, we have marches and everything. If these people that commit the crimes are not ready to change what is it that we are supposed to do?

LOL. White people in this country telling Blacks what to and not do. Incredible.

Newsflash. You may not have caused the centuries of oppression, racism and it's effect on generations of Blacks in this country, but you are living and enjoying the BENEFITS of that oppression and discrimination.

You and your families have enjoyed the benefits and opportunities granted to Whites and not Blacks. So stop it.

And is you think racism and discrimination no longer exist, then you believe Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are real.

Well, the internet is one of the few places where you will have people being truly honest about how they feel about MANY issues.

Yet so many of you fail to talk about the problems in your race. I guess it's good to keep the focus on blacks, that way we don't have to focus on whiteys problems huh? Now let's see if you can have an honest discussion about that!
