African and Afro-Caribbean blacks are also situated within this complex binary that does and does not affect them in the same ways it does for black Americans. This, in turn, creates a multiracial environment and intragroup (native-born versus foreign-born black) conflict (Segura and Rodrigues 2006; Kim 2003). Therefore, for similarly racial yet ethnically distinct groups, a multi-multiracial context exists. Du Bois was correct in that the duality of the Negro exists where he or she is both American (where whiteness as the definition is implied) and black.

However, for Afro-Caribbeans and Africans, their desire to remain an outsider or foreigner actually precipitates a stronger sense of inclusion into American society, especially by whites and economically privileged groups (Bashi 2007; Portes and Rumbaut 2001). Scholars further argue that Asian American identity is forged by several factors—the diversity of the population, the history of anti-Asian racism in the United States, and the contemporary bias within immigration policy that favors particularly high-skilled workers, producing a selection bias among Asian Americans and further reinstating the competing stereotypes of Asian Americans as a simultaneous model minority and perpetual outsider (Tuan 1998; Yun 1989; Osajima 1988).

In other words, will increased economic resources lead to even less reliance on ethnic identity and/or ethnic community? There is a fundamental difference between being excluded and striving not to be included within a particular group. Previous decades and centuries represented a “white versus nonwhite” classification of groups. However, presently, the new classification for many groups is a “black versus nonblack” classification in the twenty-first century. Therefore, black immigrant populations, new to the United States and the nuances of racial hierarchies and incorporation, at times find themselves working to stay out of the “black” classification.
