Caribbeans are as diverse as the ole Yankland or Canada. ;-) The only thing they have in common is the English lang, & only when it comes to Anglo-Caribbeans. ;-D

Of course they are invisible because indigenous Black Americans are always upstaging them.

What I don't understand is what makes "African" Americans "Africans" and what makes "Caribbean" Americans "Caribbean"...when in fact I've always known Caribbean people are black as well..so let me say this, Are black people from the Caribbean black at all? Why aren't they called "Africans" too? This just doesn't add up, there is some conspiracy behind all of this

If you're an American citizen, you are AMERICAN. That's all that matters.

Just what this country needs - another non productive minority that wants something for nothing!
