anela1986 has indicated that this thread is about Dominican Republic

DOMINICANS WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE? PICTURES OF THEM WOULD BE HELPFUL. I USED TO KNOW A GUY WHO SPOKE SPANISH FLUENTLY AND HE CARRIED A DOMINICAN REPUBLIKAN FLAG. I WASN'T SURE IF HE WAS MEXICAN OR SOMESORT, I DON'T KNOW I LOST CONTACT OF HIM. I THOUGHT HE WAS A WHITE AMERICAN UNTIL HE STARTED TO SPEAK SPANISH. I BELIEVE HE WAS ALL MEXICAN OR DOMINICAN BUT ANYWAY I HAD A CRUSH ON HIM. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DOMINICAN OR A MEXICAN? THEY SPEAK SPANISH AND I KNOW THERE ARE MEXICANS ALSO DOMINICANS WITH WHITE COLORED SKIN. IF SOMEONE WHO HAS THE RIGHT INFORMATION PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANKS.

Dominican Republicans come in all shades. When I was there I saw people that were quite dark (comparible to sub-saharan Africans) and some people that were quite light (comparible to a "typical" Mexican).

There isn't, I think, one look that captures what Dominican Republicans (or any Carribean islanders) look like.

I hope this helps.

Hello Anela

I'm Dominican and greg is right

even in my own family I have relatives that look like Britney Spears and some that look like Chris Rock.

my family ancestors from both sides come from spain, so most of my family member are light skin

hope this helps
