Theorizing Black Pan-Ethnic Identity and Intraracial Politics
This chapter discusses the concept of diasporic consciousness—a theoretical framework asserting that despite the homogenizing effect of racialized social system, Black immigrants are likely to differ in ideas about race, political issues, and the role of government. Given that Black people in the United States do not compose a monolithic racial group but instead make up a diverse pan-ethnic group, unity as well as differences and discord may occur among them similar to African Americans' and Black immigrants' political attitudes and behaviors. These distinctions have led foreign- and native-born Blacks to have varying perceptions about how to improve the status of the group.
