News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Tues. April 11, 2023: Black immigrants from the Caribbean are reshaping the political landscape of the Black electorate in the United States, according to a new report from New American Economy. The report highlights the increasing diversity of the Black population in the US and the important role that Black immigrants from the Caribbean are playing in shaping the Black electorate.

According to the report, Black immigrants from the Caribbean are one of the fastest-growing immigrant groups in the US, with a population that has more than doubled since 1990. Today, over 4 million Black immigrants live in the US, and 1.3 million of them are from the Caribbean.

These immigrants are a diverse group, with origins in countries such as Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Dominican Republic. They bring with them unique cultural perspectives and experiences that are shaping the political discourse within the Black electorate.

The report notes that Black immigrants from the Caribbean have higher levels of education and political engagement than both the overall US population and African American-born citizens. In particular, they are more likely to vote and participate in political activities, and they have a strong interest in issues such as immigration reform and education policy.

In addition to their political engagement, Black immigrants from the Caribbean are also making significant contributions to the US economy. They are more likely to start their own businesses than any other immigrant group, with a higher rate of entrepreneurship than both the overall US population and African American-born citizens.

The report concludes that Black immigrants from the Caribbean are a vital and growing part of the Black electorate in the US. Their diversity, political engagement, and economic contributions are reshaping the political discourse and driving progress within the Black community.

As the US continues to grapple with issues of race and diversity, it is clear that the voice and influence of Black immigrants from the Caribbean will play an increasingly important role in shaping the country’s future.
