In addition, race and class relations also contributed to the emergence of antihaitianismo ideologies across the Dominican state. The Dominican elites undertook efforts to impose their respective ideologies over the alternative and competing popular ideals of Dominican nationhood. The Spanish colonial regime played the first role in the establishment and reproduction of racism and other prejudices that were directed against specific racial and colored groups such as the Taino Indians and subsequent populations of Mestizos, and against blacks and mulattos. Additionally, the presence of socioeconomic differentiation that manifested alongside racial and color related prejudices took place upon the establishment of the Haitian republic in the year 1804.

Over the course of history, the Caribbean has been through a lot of stages from slavery, colonialism come right down to independence and post-independence. With slavery, the blacks were introduced, then we have the Europeans and of course the Indians came with the indenture ship program. Since the Caribbean has such a diverse array of cultures and ethnic groups, it is expected that these groups will leave their own impact on the society as a whole. To account for the influence and analyze the impact these different ethnic groups have M.G Smith sought to understand how these groups live together in a society that is deeply ‘plural’. In this paper I will seek to analyze the contribution the plural society model has made in understanding the social structure of the Caribbean.
Murdoch, explores how the transformations engendered by the slave trade facilitated the development of the ethnic and cultural patterns that are present in today’s society. He claims that the inhabitants of the Caribbean islands will perpetually be binded to the cruel injustice faced by their African descendants. Murdoch specifically examines the relationship between sugar and slavery in Jamaica and its governance over society’s perception of racism and discrimination.
