HERE ARE SOME RESPONSES:

RT @IAmMrsWalsh: @DiosaDominicana They’re raised very diff from AfLa women. They’re catered to by their moms and expect it from their women. #UNLLAMADO

RT @YnannaRising: @DiosaDominicana @DaHomieK we also have to take into account how women participant in machismo #unllamado

RT @PalanteLatino: RT @DiosaDominicana: Afrolatinas not only have 2 combat objectification that comes with being a woman but also 2nd class citizens #unllamado

RT @Drea718: @DiosaDominicana they desire the afrolatina but society doesnt except that so they end up with the light skin latina #unllamado

RT @senseijahnal: @DiosaDominicana in our culture they are, solely because of the eurocentrism that we continue to perpetuate. #unllamado

RT @Miss_Rizos: @AFROLATINOSTV @DiosaDominicana depends on the client, in the DR most Europeans look 4 Black sex, Dominicans however prefer light women #unllamado

FINAL QUESTION: What are we doing now to reject these stereotypes.. what are we doing to support our black women everywhere #UNLLAMADO

@shhushyourlips Raising our kids differently than we were. Creating new “stereotypes”, rejecting the old ones. #UNLLAMADO

@IvyFarguheson believe it, live it, breathe it, walk it, talk it, think it, feel it and pass it on!! #unllamado

@shhushyourlips Thats why it is important that the Afrolatinos the untaught story be completed! #unllamado
