What are some countries that are very different from their neighbors? One I can think of is Haiti - an African country stuck in the western hemisphere.

No it's not alone, it borders with Dominican Republic that is also inhabited by black people. And there are many more black countries in this region.

Haiti is about as African as the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Trinidad, etc. Point is, most of the countries in the Caribbean are mostly African-descent.

All of the Caribbean is black. Even Cubans, by and large are Moroccan blacks. The only whites are from Europe and North America.

And Australia, New Zealand, Uruguay, Argenitna, Brazil, Chile and some South Africa (only 11%). But generally all whites outside Europe are of European origin.

All of the Caribbean is not black. It true that blacks (people of African Decent) are the Majority, but there are whites, South Asians, Asians, Middle Eastern, and Indigenous people as well.
