I even noticed on Instagram, Spice tends to have more of a Guyanese following than Trinidadian. Do Guyanese care for Jamaicans more than Trinidadians?
There’s definitely a racial aspect to it, there’s still a rift with Guyanese Indians and Trini Indians vs black Guyanese and black Trini’s. This will show in their preferences for Jamaicans. I’ve never had any issues with black Trini’s nor black Guyanese, some of the Indians are very racist.
I absolutely know that’s the case, humans are tribal, if there were more Indians in JA, we would have the same divisions as Trinidad and Guyana. Since there’s not many, they are forced to be a part of the black tribe. When you look at the world, any country that’s made of sizable amounts of different races has problems with racism/prejudices
I mean… I wouldn’t call it racism. There is some classism though. But I think for the most part people get along pretty well with each other in Jamaica. A few families do try to maintain their generational wealth by marrying other families with historically wealthy families. Cant blame em.
I’d definitely call it racism, I’m Jamaican, my wife is Black Trinidadian. She has told me and I’ve seen it first hand from traveling to Trinidad. Do a quick google search and you’ll see. Also, you’ll rarely see inter marriages between Indians and Blacks even those in the same socioeconomic class.
I’m a Jamaican of Indian descent and very proud to say,Out of Many, One PeopleI encountered blatant racism when I attended university in Trinidad. I recall going to a pool hall one night with my fellow Jamaican friends who are all black. The hall was all Indian, and you could hear a pin drop as we entered
Does that question even make sense? You must be way up there to.think like that.. what about how looking at way that we all could connect without being stupid to each other..how much of us are there in the Caribbean and how we can help each other break the slave masters grip on our DNA, OUR MINDSET and OUR Existence..talk the rights things NOW.. PLEASE
