when you ask people from there what they are, they most often tell you the island (if it is big enough) or they tell you West Indian.

I have yet to meet someone who says: "Hi, I am Caribbean"
Well first of all I said I was Haitian. So nationality upfront. Hello. And second, I can see your trying to cover up your rudeness by acting all nice and sweet. Lots of people I know behave just like that. No need for the cover up. I know you think I'm stupid. You didn't have to say it. And for the record, I'm not. I just didn't know about that little fact and now I'm over it.

6) Philadelphia
7) Atlanta
8) Tampa
9) Washington DC
10) Jacksonville

For what it's worth, Miami gets almost as many as all the other metros combined. By the time you get to Stamford, it's barely a trickle.

New York accounts for over 50% of the total, which means that LA's share of the total is quite small, despite being in the top 10. Most of the individual islands don't have very high raw numbers, on account of their small size.
