I went to Altagracia in DR, and travelled with a group of church members.

from NY I went to get my hair done at the hotel's beauty parlor, and a Dominican lady was looking at me. She approached me, and asked me where I was from so I told her Haiti.

I am light complexion, and have long hair. She responded "tu es una Haitian fina", and basically it meant you are not dark enough to be Haitian.
