A Dominican is one whose heritage is traced to the Dominican Republic (disambiguation between dominican from the Dominican Republic and the island of Dominica). Dominicans occupy a little more than half of the island of la Hispaniola in the Caribbean. Their culture is one mixed with Spanish, Taino and some fragmented African traditions and genealogies. In the US, Dominicans are known for excelling in the sport of baseball. Dominicans are also widely known for their skill in hair styling and distribution of effective hair and aesthetic products. Women from the Dominican Republic are also among the world's most beautiful and exotic. Some Dominican trademarks include merengue (as well as dominican reggaeton artists), highly acclaimed beer Presidente, high-grade beverage Mamajuana, Mangu (plantain dish), an officially established territory occupying a big part of Manhattan (NY), known as Washington Heights (a.k.a "lo platano').
Generally, dominicans are viewed as very friendly people who are very proud of their culture. Often misconceptions have revolved around dominicans wanting to be puerto rican. As of early, this myth has been debunked. Studies have shown that while Puerto Rico has been better off economically, most Dominicans 'lost respect' for their cousin country for giving up its independence as a latin country to the US and thus becoming a commonwealth. Being ridiculed for this, Puerto Ricans have harbored feelings of resentment against dominicans and defend themselves by saying that dominicans want to be like them. Other surveys concluded that Dominicans take pride in their language and culture, while an alarming percentage of boricuas hardly speak spanish or not at all. Overall, the dominican/rican rivalry has not been ongoing for long, but it is a rather recent enmity ignited by foreign policy.
Dominicans are skilled in music (as well as Cubans and Puerto Ricans)
"Yo, check out that group of people over there havin fun, lookin beautiful and eating plantains...who are they?"

The loudest race on Earth they scream at each other even if their 2 inches away from each other. Their big mouths and they talk about their sisters and brothers if they are large families. They love eating platanos con salami. I know this because i am 100% Dominican. we took over Washington heights and it is referred to plantano heights. We fight a lot and we kick asses all the time so DO NOT MESS WITH US! ive seen it happen and Dominicans Dont Play was formed. not a pretty picture by the way. They use the word cono a lot and the kids who go to school usually talk mad shit bout others in spanish and use bad words in Spanish at the same time.
Dominicans are fucking awesome so dont hate bitches!!!

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 B: Hey, I'm Melecia, I'm Dominican
Person A: You are?? Do you eat platanos all the time?
Person B: No, do you eat Burgers and Fries all the time?

A Hispanic ethnic group. They look similar to Puerto ricans except they come in all shades. They're probably the nicest ethnic group of the Hispanic race. They're a very hyper people and like people of the Latino race, they're known to be hot-blooded and knife-wielding. Dominicans, like people of their own race and black race, some have a gangsta/ghetto mentality. They're favorite sport is baseball.
yo i'm dominican and proud. i'm proud 2 b born into tha latino race. all mah latinos stand up. gracias dios

A Dominican is a Haitian that can speak Spanish.
Haitians and Dominicans both live in the same country (which is basically a small island divided by an imaginary line) and share the same landscape and resources. Yet, they both pretend to be different.
