Dominican-American Ethnic/Racial Identities and United States Social Categories.
Bailey, Benjamin
International Migration Review, v35 n3 p677-708 Fall 2001
Investigated Dominican-American high school students' accounts of their ethnic/racial identities and explanations of race. Interview and observation data reveal significant divergences between their ethnic/racial categorization system and dominant, traditionally accepted U.S. systems. Unlike non-Hispanic, African descent, second-generation immigrants, who generally identify themselves as black, second generation Dominicans identify themselves as Dominican, Spanish, or Hispanic.
