It's partly a stereotype.

There is a majority of light skinned people in RD while the majority of Haitian immigrants are dark skinned and poor. If you don't meet this stereotype you are not Haitian.

There was a time in Port au Prince any light skinned Spanish speaking female was seen as a "panyol' which meant prostitute in Haitian mind.

It's a funny world.
