The African Caribbean debate
The late reggae star Peter Tosh once sang " no matter where you come from as long as you're a black man, you're an African."
But a row between two black UK politicians has caused a dark cloud of doubt to descend over that sentiment.
A seemingly simmering rift between the UK's African and Caribbean communities apparently only needed a spark to ignite a full-blown raging debate on relations between the two.
It was triggered by a Jamaican newspaper article by British Labour Party MP Dianne Abbot raising questions about corruption in Nigeria.
