The British West Indian Negro Within the Negro Community of New York City
Background of the Study, "Human behavior can best be explained in relation to the personal, social and cultural context in which it occurs. To study a person apart from his social environment is to study him in a vacuum. This milieu reveals not only the traditions, customs, moral standards of the group to which the person is subjected, but also the manner in which the cultural factors become incorporated onto the behavior trends of the child or person." Immigrants to the United States usually come for reasons ; due to economic conditions, politics, religion or to seek new experience in a new way of life. To the new land, the immigrant brings his customs of the "old country" that he has learned through the teachings of his parents and general social environment in which he lived.
