This really saddens me. Some ppl. say Jamican's are looking for a hand out. In my case, this has not been true! I've been the luckiest person in the world to have meet nice Jamrock's white & blk. and are still friend's with them & are meeting more!! I took a Carnival Cruise in 6/06 to Jamaica. The people were great! It was then I really recognized how Jamaican's took pride in their root's & culture. This is not a genric statement. Jamaica have beautiful ppl. art, jewerly & great food with lot's more to offer. Jamican's are educated, intelligent ppl...Please don't judge other culture's before you get to know them...Love AKJ...

Right on, Sista AKJ!

Plus Jamaican women are sooooo cute, with that sexy Caribbean accent. I like West Indians generally.

Jamaicans are cool with me.

Who gives a damn what others think of Jamaicans. As long as their proud in their roots and heritage that's all that matters.

I don't hate Jamaicans. They never gave me any problems. They are cool, interesting, laid back, and stylish people.:)

Cause they lazy mon', and 2 blocks from the beaches of Jamica is slum mon. The crime rate there is crazy, the leadership of the island is corrupt. The people are so poor id be afraid to travel there personally. The only place you could really feel safe is the hotel, and why go to a tropical island only to hang out at the hotel?

Most of my friends are Jamaicans and I think they are very proud people just like Africans are. They have beautiful people and culture:)

Search me. There are plenty of them that go to my school and they all seem to b cool. Although they face the bullish stereotype of always saying "Ya Mon" but I have yet to meet anyone like that. None of the Jamaicans I know say "Ya Mon". I thinks its just folks who have been hurt in the past by one are venting it out on topix. And yes I agree. Folks should with hold judgment about a different culture until they have actually participated in it. Sure what may seem normal to them will be TABOO to us and vise vera but peeps need to understand where folks r coming from rather than just labeling them. Cultural relativism is the key.

Just my 2 cents.

Jamaicans are my second most admired group. They have the best music in the Caribbean and many accomplishments.
