History of Latinos and Hispanics[edit]

Please consider contributing to the article entitled History of Latinos and Hispanics. Thank you! --JuanMuslim 1m 02:03, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Northfield, Vermont is 11% Dominican? I think that's a mistake. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Edward77x (talkcontribs) 10:30, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Populaiton of Dominican americans in Kansas City metro area is known to be at 3,000+ acording to the local Dominican association 65.163.203.130 18:39, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Population[edit]

Ok why are there two numbers for population? Clearly the Dominican-American population is more than 1.2 million, so why is that the number in the box? Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nycstudent578 (talkcontribs) 22:11, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

That 3 million figure goes back to these edits, [1] and [2], a couple of months ago, with numbers which appear to have been made up. I've just replaced them with the ACS numbers. SamEV (talk) 21:15, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
  • The Bronx is 20% dominican... your're kidding me right.
And what do you suppose is 20% of the Bronx's population?... Here's your answer:
20% * 1,357,589[3] = 271,517.8. So how does that support the claim of 3 million Dominican Americans? SamEV (talk) 00:12, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Notables[edit]

I've just removed a few dozen names that had neither articles at Wikipedia, nor references. If anyone would like to help return them to the article, please help by providing either. The removed names can be seen on this diff page. Thanks. SamEV (talk) 04:07, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect listing of Dominican Americans[edit]

The section lists many dominicans as Dominican Americans. Jack Veneno, Alex Bueno and many others in the list were born and raised in the Dominican Republic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.80.235.45 (talk) 14:15, 21 May 2009 (UTC) I DA Fernanez will add on to this most of the baseball players are Dominican born and raised the following are Dominican American. Alex Rodriguez-Born an raised in New York City and Miami, Randy Ruiz-Born and Raised in the Bronx, Pedro Alvrarez-Born and raised in New York City, Manny Ramirez-Born in the DR and raised in NYC Manny Delcarmen-Born and raised in Boston, MA, Denny Almonte- Not the Little Leaguer the prospect for the Seattle Mariners Born and Raised in Miami , Julio Lugo-Born in the DR raised in NYC , Ruddy Lugo-Brother of Julio Lugo born in DR raised in NYC Robert Andino- Born and raised in Miami , Carlos Pena- Born in the DR raised in the Boston Metro Area, Albert Pujols-Born in DR raised in NYC and St. Louis , Ronnie Belliard-Born in the Bronx raised in the Bronx and Miami, THe Alou family. Dominican Americans are Dominicans who came here at young age and were raised in the US. Or were born in the US to Dominican Parents

I lot of those people had gotten American Citizenship so even if they weren't born in the US the are still Dominican Americans legally speaking — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.115.33.56 (talk) 23:30, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Removal of content related to Santiago Luis Polanco Rodríguez[edit]

I removed some content in the "Crime" section regarding Santiago Luis Polanco Rodríguez. There is no difference between him and other Dominican-Americans that committed crimes. The sources used make no mention that he is of any significance to the Dominican American community. --Pink Bull (talk) 22:16, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

update racial results of the 2010 census[edit]

update racial results of 2010 census why u still got the one from 1990 up.. that was 20 years ago — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.194.239.60 (talk) 23:39, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

I think the racial classification is wrong, I looked at antother page and it has the black and white figures reversed. I'm not going to change it because I don't know which is correct but, someone should look into that and the page on Hispanic and Latino Americans. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.64.104.4 (talk) 12:16, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Montage[edit]

I changed it up a bit added some more recognized people. I don't anyone knows who Tristan Wilds but people definitely know Julia Alvarez, Junot Diaz, etc. I'm new to these things so it does look a little weird but I feel it is a definite improvement. everyone knows Trsitan Wilds, he is only in the most popular teenage Darama of network television in the U.S. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.115.33.56 (talk) 23:32, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Racial demographics[edit]

the DOMINICAN AMERICAN population is 29% WHITE and 12% BLACK, and about 59% everything else. are yall blind? READ THE SOURCES!!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.194.239.1 (talk) 13:29, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

black[edit]

Dominican Americans do have the highest proportion of blacks of any hispanic group in the US, especially by "US one-drop rule" standards, so they are the most African. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spreadofknowledge (talkcontribs) 16:55, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

No they are not, and that's now how it works since they identify as other on census survey's and the one drop rule is only limited to African Americans. Akmal94 (talk) 06:44, 23 December 2016 (UTC)

There are "approximately 1.41 million people of Dominican descent in the U.S."; for people from descended from the island of Dominica, the number is reckoned by the U.S. Census at about six thousand. bd2412 T 16:06, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
