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)
"Aah, my friend...they are Dominicans"
