lol no one answered the guy's question. I can give him a short answer since I am both dominican and puerto rican. Most dominicans have african descent in their blood but not all of them. Some dominicans have euporean ancestors, Tainos, spaniard and even a very small number have asian ancestors. However for the most part the majority of dominicans are also black but dont say that to dominicans that actually live in the dominican republic or you will just have them hate you (long history of hate between dominicans and haitians). To answer his question, its not racist to say you are half black if you are dominican since there is a good chance you have african ancestors but you should do your own family research to confirm what your family background consist of.
