The "Shouter Baptist" represents a valuable connection with West African religiosity. It also provides a rich site for the exploration of African retentions and survivals in the African diaspora in the Caribbean. The "Shouter Baptist" reality is connected with other syncretisms such as Voodoo and Santeria in the Americas.

Erwin Thomas's dissertation, Beginnings of Broadcasting in the West Indies 1920- 1949, examines this process and isolates the tensions between the Radio Corporation of America and the British government on the establishment of commercial broadcasting in the West Indies. In Columbus to Castro, Eric Williams reports that the British government was so indebted to the United States as a result of World War II that it was in an asymmetrical negotiating position in matters of foreign policy and economics. Thomas concludes that the British government's decision to facilitate the creation of Rediffusion and award it a license to operate in the West Indies and other parts of the British Empire involved the assertion of independence by the British in the asymmetrial condition.
