Policing the Urban Poor

Policing the Urban Poor

The Mulatto Republic

This chapter focuses on another aspect of this cultural ordering process, one that occurred through policing foreign workers and the immigrant poor. Afro-Antilleans remained largely excluded from an emerging national community taking shape in San Pedro. The chapter argues that Anti-black racism evolved in San Pedro as a reaction against Afro-Antillean migrants. San Pedro’s unique ties to the greater (Afro) Caribbean world adds richly to our understanding of nation making as a process that marked some as “raced” through the violent monitoring of their labor and sexual practices.
