    Black Canadians

    What have they accomplished?


    Are they the forgotten group of blacks?


    They have no identity. All of them are just a bunch of Black American wannabees.

    Well, most Black Canadians ancestors were American slaves that went there through the underground railroad. Due to Immigration, a new wave of Blacks from the Caribbean and Africa have made those wannabees African Americans a minority within a minority.

    Have you ever been to Canada to be making entirely false statements like that?

    Black Canadians


    Languages
    Canadian English, Canadian French, Caribbean English, Haitian Creole, and other African languages

    Religion
    Christianity, Islam, Rastafari, and others

    Black Canadians, Caribbean Canadians and African Canadians are designations used for people of Black African descent who reside in Canada. The terms are used by and of Canadian citizens who trace their ancestry back to people who were indigenous to Sub-Saharan Africa. The majority have relatively recent origins in the Caribbean, while some trace their lineage to the first slaves brought by British and French colonists to the mainland of North America. A minority of the population have recent African origin. Many Canadians identify as Black even though they may have multi-ethnic ancestries.

    Blacks and other Canadians often draw a distinction between those of Caribbean ancestry and those of African descent, which sometimes results in controversy around the terms used to label and identify the Black community. Unlike in the United States, where African American is the most widely accepted term, Blacks of Caribbean origin in Canada largely reject the term African Canadian as an elision of their Caribbean heritage.
