Dominican; not Mexican, Asian, or White

My race is very unique. People always ask if I’m Mexican, Asian, or white and I always tell them no I’m Dominican. They assume this because of the color of my skin. Most people don’t even know what Dominican is but they know what Cuban is and what Jamaican is when the Dominican Republic is in the same body of water as the other two.
