*steupse*so wait..what about the historical nature of Belize aka the former British Honduras being considered part of the British West Indies.... name change mean history erased??
maybe it is because none of the parties who see caribbean and west indian as non-interchangeable was actually resident in either the Caribbean or the west indies? hmm . food for thought.
and parts of the US were once parts of Mexico, but tell Billy Bob that he is Mexican and see what happens
