Caribbean

The Caribbean is a region associated with the Caribbean Sea, including the West Indies islands and (some of) the mainland coasts/countries.

Some parts are not part of Latin America, due to Romance languages not being predominant, but may have similarities with parts of Latin America, such as extensive race mixing.

Some parts have significant African ancestry in the populations. Afro-Caribbean people is one term for this group. However, there are many other groups in the region. Regardless, leftist Wikipedia claims that "The Caribbean can also be expanded to include territories with strong cultural and historical connections to Africa, slavery, European colonisation and the plantation system."
