Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before (Buckham, 2010).” The term “West Indies” includes beginning with Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago in 1962 (Benson & Conolly, 2005). The West Indies refers to the Caribbean Anglophone islands, is also know as the former British mainland territories. The Caribbean consist of several islands some of the most common are Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Bermuda, Aruba, and Cayman Island. In this paper I will examine how and why West Indians immigrated, the forms of discrimination that they faced and what ethnic group I identify the most with. The West Indies is a melting pot of different cultures. Some of the cultures that populate the West Indies are Indians, Chinese, Portuguese, Spaniards, and the Middle Eastern cultures. Some time in the 1800’s the Europeans implemented slavery upon the West Indies Society. Racism exists in this country because the British government implemented it to divert attention away from the few Whites who had taken over main business and governmental positions.
