Ok, some of these definitions come off as being very moronic. Let me first address that I am proud of my culture, but these definitions just scream stereotypical and inaccurate and made me die a little inside.
A Dominican is someone who is a native of the Dominican Republic. They DO NOT hate Puerto Ricans. This is garbage started by teens my age. Not all Dominicans are Campesinos. However, those who come to the United States are mainly from poorer areas. This doesnt only apply to us, EVERY nation in the world has low class citizens. Those from lower classes are usually deprived of education. Dominicans and Hatians are NOT the same thing. They both speak different languages. Second of all, their cultures are different. Blacks and Dominicans are not the same thing either. Yes, many have African ancestry, It doesn’t mean they should consider themselves strictly 'black' with the ancestry they have little intact with. Not all are illegal. Some may be, but not ALL. Not all work at bodegas, Barber shops or become Pro Baseball Players. Why not open a history book and see those who mastered in Medicine or those who attended Medical schools in DR where many go to study an exceptional field in Medicine? The list goes on. Not all have a Ghetto Mentality. Yes unfortunately, there are a number of young kids who end up with wrong groups of people and do wrong mainly to themselves. There are also those who have their mindset geared towards a successful life, too.
Person A: Hi I'm Bob, I'm American

Person A: You are?? Do you eat platanos all the time?
Person B: No, do you eat Burgers and Fries all the time?
