This audio provides an excellent history of how Indian and Chinese laborers were brought into the Caribbean. Interracial conflicts fomented as each group exploited the stereotypes of another.
Ironically I have first hand experience with all of these places.
- In Jamaica there is no doubt a large presence of people with Chinese ancestry. In Montego Bay I was surprised at the number of Asian merchants in this overwhelmingly Black nation
- In Trinidad there is indeed a large population of people with an Indian ancestry. While they appear to socialize together at the Carnival race seems to define the key political parties of the nation
- Regarding Guyana - my former next door neighbors were Indo-Guyanese. I figured that there was some past migration movement into the land but this audio report was the first time it was contextualized
