An investigation of contributing factors that lead to social fragmentation between Black-Americans, Africans, Caribbeans and West Indians

Brent Collins III

The purpose of this paper is to provide an investigative approach to the social structure, environments, and interactions of four different ethnic backgrounds of the Black race: Blacks from America, Africa, the Caribbean, and West Indies. In addition, it serves as an insight to their highly diverse and ethnic background and the different social environments and interactions between one other within the United States. Lastly, it will reveal conflicts such as culture, identity, social class, and history within each ethnic background that often cause barriers of interaction, giving rise to separation and tolerance rather than unity.
