People never believe me when I tell them that I’m dominican. My mom is from Sosua and all my relatives live there. People usually think I’m lying or that I’m Haitian. I have nothing against Haitians but they are two separate countries with different cultures. I wish that Americans would stop thinking that the average dominican is white with long straight hair. No! There are negro Indio and white Dominicans! And some Dominicans need to get out of that mindset that they are not black! Our ancestors are from Africa!
