@Diane I think I read somewhere that Jamaica has a greater population in diaspora than actually Jamaica. Have you heard of that?

yes, we do. If every yardie decided to return home we would have no space on the island or the sea to hold them all. it also has to do with the fact that once you can prove that a parent or grandparent is Jamaican then you can call yourself Jamaican and apply for citizenship even though you have never set foot on the island. so the numbers are inflated

What makes a yardie a yardie? i think last census we were 2.5 million or so i assume that maybe another 300000 yardies are undocumented immigrants in the USA (assuming the data was only for US resident. citizens).  plenty of yardies in europe , even scattered all over the caribbean and latin america , it is said that any crabhole in the world you go there'll be 2-4 yardies living there are well. So yes more yardies live outside these 4400 square miles

ETA afro mentioned descendants- 1 adult male yardie is capable of making 4-6 babies a yearLOLLOLLOL

Title is wrong because they're not AA. They're black. But this isn't news. I've heard AA tell me they feel like minorities within the black population in certain places, like on some college campuses.

I agree with all of this^^^
I am the minority black on the average day in NJ & NYC. When I meet a person of the diaspora here, my assumption is that they are of foreign descent unless I have a reason to believe otherwise. I dont even bother to ask b/c it doesnt matter to me. We kinda have the 'American Melting Pot' thing going on here when it comes to people's origins here.

^^^the diversity is the norm for me. Since this figure accounts for a very broad metro area, i really think that the percentage in my area and in Manhattan/Bronx/Brooklyn is much much higher, possibly 60% born overseas, 20% have been here for 2 generations and 20% have been here for centuries by way of the TransAtlantic Holocaust.
We all love, mix and get along fine so, my reaction to the article is just 'Oh'.

The concentration is def higher in Brooklyn. Carribreans everywhere

Throw a stone in Brooklyn and you'll and hit a West Indian (or their offspring)
