They don't like being called Black, don't consider themselves Black and don't like Black people. We should ignore them, yes?

We should ignore them? ... hmmm ... :thinking:

We don't generally ignore folk on a collective level, but individually ... i think ... right?

You are free to ignore anyone you'd like ... for any reason ... most of us are free to do that.

I don't hardly ignore anyone though ... even dark skinned Dominicans ... and i certainly have no right or authority to exclude them (or anyone) from PanAfricanism.

In fact ... we have a Dominican Brother here in the community ... and he's probably ... "just a little black behind the ears" ... and i don't ignore him.

Ignoring each other, no matter the condition we may be in, cannot be the right answer.

In my opinion.

Much Love and Peace.

No, we need to save them from their self loathing. I tell you this I like looking at Dominican women :luv: but being with someone that self loathing would drive me nuts and once I see that on such a level no matter what the looks are they become ugly.

Sammy Sosa is a prime example of a self loathing Dominican, he bleached all the color out of his skin, Dominicans have a serious self loathing image of their blackness.

The Dominaican Republic is adjacent to Haiti. It's the same people inherently. Spanish culture and French culture differ. But far be it for me to ignore a people based on who colonized them.
