Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy our discussion.
Yes, Professor Lewis!
Hi Linda. Glad you are here.
Look at Rwanda, the division between the tutsi and hutu peoples. Apart of the reason there was division was because the colonial powers ranked the ethnic groups based on which ethnic group had more European features.
Dominicans struggle a lot with racial identity, and there is a major divide amongst the new generation and the old generation with regard to what we as a culture should identify as. I really agree with what Claude is saying
Vestiges of colonialism
My cousins are half Dominican and their father struggles with the white-washing that was introduced under Trujillo. One of my cousins is treating better than the other because he's lighter than his brother.
