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)

A Dominican is a person from the Dominican Republic, a small banana republic in the Caribbean. Many live in the New York City and are known for mostly for dealing drugs, destroying property, fighting, yelling when they speak, wearing tight clothes over obese bodies, playing music so loud it makes your filling rattle and throwing their trash out windows. They are almost permanently mired in the lower economic rungs due to their propensity to party 95% of the time and their disinterest in education. Many drive liveries. The remainder do nothing, but make noise and sell drugs.
Hey some Dominicans are barbecuing on the street, throwing their trash everywhere, and playing music so loud it makes your fillings rattle.

1. a person born on the Dominican Republic side of the island of Hispanola, which is shared by Haiti on the west and DR on the east. 2. The oldest New World settlement, 1492. Mostly of African origin, although considered Latino. Most Spanish blood there comes from Puerto Rico prior the Spanish-American War, since most Spanish fled Dominican Republic after France took over. 3. desendants of the first slaves of the New World, which are not so mixed as their neighbor Puerto Rico. 4. a people on the rise, although they need to stop their hate crimes againts the Puerto Ricans--the chosen ones who have constantly lend a helping hand.
The guy looks Black, but he speaks a wierd Spanish. Yes, he is Black, but he is Dominican. The Dominican guy always rolls his eyes at me. I think he is jealous of my straight hair, light eyes and intellect. Those Dominicans have a rich history. Too bad most of them don't know it.

A person from the Demon Republic. Most of the time you can barely understand them because they're so used to speaking in tongues due to the fact they worship demons all the time. They like to make annoying sounds, including making beeping sounds and imitating car noises. If you ever encounter a "Dominican" don't make eye contact and be completely still, rumors have it they won't see you then.
Most Common Demon Phrases:
"It's Dominican Republic you fuggin racist"
"You stoopid or somethin?"
"Big fohead"
"Speak spanish"
"Zroooom"
"Beepbeepbeep"
