Chapter 2 explores in detail the complex structure of Bahamian society and how, according to scholar Colin Hughes in Race and Politics in The Bahamas, it differed from the social norms of the British Caribbean as a whole. According to Hughes, wealth took a principal seat in the Bahamas, especially after Prohibition. Wealth attracted power and authority, and therefore racial differences in the Bahamas were linked to economic relationships.
