Do you have information on Caribbean pirates that weren't white dudes? Or slaves brought to the Caribbean who became pirates? Books I'm reading mention that they existed, but don't give me any details.

I really don’t know who came up with the idea that the Caribbean was somehow devoid of people of color, considering that’s basically the majority of people who lived there. Not that pirates were necessarily from that area, but yeah the ubiquitous whiteness idea is a far cry from the truth. As is the “everyone was men” idea.
