A derogatory term used to describe newly arrived male Dominicans in NYC from Santo Domingo. The term itself was created by the allready established Dominicans in NYC to put down the newly arrived Dominicans. It was used to distance themselves from the newly arrived Dominicans which they felt were giving them a bad name because of their old world Macho attitude, Drug dealing and Hillbilly style. The word is derived from the Spanish word for Plantain. Which is eaten by most Carribean Latinos, Dominicans, Puerto Ricans and Cubans.

When anyone says "Platano Power" trust me there Dominican, Platano power is from the Dominican Republic mostly all Dominicans use "Platano Power" mostly Teens, or Adults but it's pretty common, We use it when we are playing online there a Dominican group that says "Platano Power" It may even have a plantain Emoji right next to it, that showing how much we LOVE plantains, we also may say it when we win a game mostly Baseball.
"Loco vamos a jugar un juego, y hagamos un grupo como quieres que se llame? Loco {Platano Power} porque dime somos Dominicanos"

"Yo lets play a game, make a group what should we call it? Yo {Platana Power} cuz tell me.... We are Dominicans."
