If most Dominicans aren't Mulattos, how do you explain their artists?

Most Merengueros (Merengue being the DR's national music) are in the Mulatto to Quadroon/Mestizo range such as Alex Bueno, Rafael Solano, Eddy Herrera, Lope Balaguer, Angelito Villalona, Fernando Villalona, El Prodigio, Juan Luis Guerra (he sometimes does Merengue), Jochy Hernandez etc.:

In fact, the only Black Merengueros I can think of off of the top of my head are Johnny Ventura, Wilfrido Vargas and Joseito Mateo (y que buenisimo son!). The only Dominican music genres that are dominated by blacks are the sh*tty ghetto ones like Urban Merengue and Urban Bachata, but alot of the more authentic Bachateros like Zacarias Ferreira, Juan Luis Guerra and El Chaval are light skinned Mulatto:

So why can't you accept that the DR is a diverse country? The Haitian invasian (which only lasted 20 years) was only enough to make the DR's population around 40-50% black, it would've taken centuries of occupation for Haiti to make the DR as black as Haiti.

Update:

Chapulin - There are some in El Cibao (North Central).

El Cibao, the Central/Inland region of the Dominican Republic, which also happens to be the most populated region of the country, is majority light skinned mulatto/White:

    Dominican is a Nationality, therefore it is regardless of race.

    You can belong to any racial category (Caucasoid, Negr0id,

    Mongoloid, or Australoid) and still be Dominican because it is not a race...

    That is why there are "Dominicans" that are either Caucasoid (White) mixed

    with Mongoloid (Asian, yes the Aztecs, Mayans, Inca, &other Native Americans

    are Asian) and/or also mixed with Negr0id (Black)

    are you stupid? do you think people wake up thinking about Dominicans? because we don't. we could care less. i don't know who you're talking to that is convincing you that this is a major issue, because it's not. you obviously have no life and no friends, so instead of obsessing over this topic why don't you search for some. you're so pathetic its sad and upsetting at the same time.

    Why do you ask these questions when you know no one gives a crap what Dominican people are.
