Compasses of Racialization
This chapter discusses racism in the Caribbean. Some Caribbeans have claimed that there was or is no racism in the Caribbean while some have indicated that the United States is where they first encountered racism. Others, in even more extreme articulations, say that Caribbean people do not experience racism in the United States in the same way as do African Americans. However, all research reveals that racism is an international phenomenon that appears differently nuanced according to historical and cultural locations; it is also a structural socioeconomic organizing system that creates a hierarchy in which race determines how individuals and communities are able to access resources and power; how they are located in systems from education to criminal justice, athletics to the entertainment industry.
