Flying fish in the great white north : the autonomous migration of Black Barbadians / Christopher Stuart Taylor.


Notwithstanding Indigenous Peoples, Canada is a nation of immigrants. As a settler colony, the French and English charter immigrant "solitudes" created a paradigm of "White Canada" nation-building defined by exclusionary and hypocritical immigration policies. Canada was a "White man's country" built by non-Whites on the stolen lands of colonized Aboriginal peoples, where discriminatory anti-Black immigration policy, particularly during the early twentieth century up to the immigration policy reforms of the 1960s, was designed to restrict and prohibit the entry of Black Barbadians and Black West Indians. The Canadian state capitalized on the public's fear of the "Black unknown" and the negative codification of Black identity and used illogical fallacies such as climate "unsuitability" to justify the exclusion of Black Barbadians and West Indians.
