This introductory chapter gives an account of anti-Haitianism which spread across the Caribbean basin. Special attention is given to the condition of Haitian immigrants residing in the Caribbean states such as the Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana. The chapter also explores the steps taken by antiracist and human rights organizations to bring justice to these Haitian immigrants. Racial characteristics of Haitian migrants, Intra-Caribbean relationships, and Haitian history and diasporas, all are explored briefly to understand the reason behind the clashes between Hiatian migrants and host societies.
