Bahamas~ African Ancestry
"Most of the approximately 275,000 Bahamians currently living in the islands are predominantly of West African descent, the ancestors of former slaves. However, some are white Bahamians who are descendants of the first English settlers, who are related to the Loyalists who fled America during the Revolutionary War, or who are the ancestors of the former slave owners in many cases. Like America, descendants also cross color lines, with some of the colored Bahamians being the offspring of their white planters."
