Abstract:

The white “supremacy” is seen in countries with racial mixtures and colonial background where the different ethnical groups had stand by what they thought were their rights, of course against slavery. In Dominican Republic this prevailed and supported radically by the political power for years and today still evident. The predilection to white skin compared to the black and the other halftones. Also there’s a saying “being white is a full time job”, this phrase illustrate the way of thinking in the third world. Where the people with brown skin are never consider black and lighter skins are rich like they are superior.
