    Jamaica is also one of the worst islands to visit in the Caribbean so it doesn't matter anyway.

    Homophobia was exported to the colonies by the Brits, and now we have American evangelical preachers running around keeping the fires stoked. I heard it's happening in South America too.

    lol Here goes Pazzy trying to convince that Jamaica is other than a shit-hole run by crazies because the mean white guy used to run things. Get over it Pazzy. Take some responsibility instead of blaming the big, bad white guy.

    My partner was just down there a couple of months ago to film a sequence for a cruise ship ad. When the tenders unloaded, they told everyone to stay within the walls of their private compound. To make the clip more interesting, though, the film crew did venture out but with an armed group of bodyguards.

    There comes a time when you cannot keep blaming old colonial laws for the ills of your nation. Jamaica has been an independent nation for over 50 years now. That's enough time to get your shit together.

    There's a wiki for everything

    Look!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_the_Commonwealth_of_Nations
    The majority of the countries of the Commonwealth of Nations, formerly known as the British Commonwealth, still criminalize sexual acts between consenting adults of the same sex and other forms of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. This has been described as being the result of "the major historical influence" or legacy of the British Empire. In most cases, it was former colonial administrators that established anti-gay legislation or sodomy acts during the 19th century. The majority of countries then retained these laws following independence


    Still, that level of intolerance seems to speak to more than merely imported legacy. Just look at the company kept by Jamaica...

    I'm sorry Pazzy, but Jamaicans sound like cunts. I do not defend Arabs with their barbaric laws against atheists, gays etc. I do not run excuses...and remember ,its a totally different generation than that which was colonized. Being said, if you as a Jamaican want to defend them, go ahead, remember , mostly gay black jamaicans bear the brunt of it. Not me or most others on this board. Maybe we should see what A jamaican living there thinks.

    Look how bizarre this is...

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jun/06/jamaica-music-anti-gay-dancehall-homophobia
    ...This is why, in collaboration with Dr Noel Cowell from the University of the West Indies, I decided to conduct the largest piece of research of its kind to date, using data collected by Professor Ian Boxhill.

    By interviewing about 2,000 people across 40 communities in Jamaica, we looked at the predictors of anti-gay bias and measured them.

    Our results confirm the suspicion that Jamaicans, in general, hold very strong prejudices against gays and lesbians....

    ...As in other countries, wealth, education and (younger) age were associated with less anti-gay prejudice. Religiosity, which is often the reason offered by anti-gay lobbyists, also predicted more anti-gay bias. However, it was neither the strongest nor the most reliable predictor. When all the factors were taken into account simultaneously, the two that were most reliable were a preference for dancehall music, and gender.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dancehall
    dancehall culture's anti-homosexual lyrics formed part of a macho discussion that advanced the interest of the heterosexual male in Jamaica, which is a Christian society with strong Rastafari movement influence as well.

    lol. Told ya. The guy sits in his mama's basement and spews silly attacks on everyone because he's unable to leave the house. Jamaica would be better off if the Brits still controlled it. After 50 years, these clowns still can't figure out how to govern themselves and re-create the economy. It and Haiti, the two toilets of the Caribbean.

    oh please shut up.


    i don't want to hear ANY gay person especially in the united states talking about anywhere in the world being fucked up towards gay people as if their country got love for them. america don't have love for gay folks. don't get it twisted. you think that because you're getting the right to marry now MEANS that your country respects you as a gay man? icon_lol.gif

    whenever guys such as yourself talk shit about these places, do you think about the LGBTQ population that live there too that has to deal with that shit? of course not.. i bet you like metta8 just see a bunch of black people representing jamaica and being that you're a white guy (not saying that you're a racist, just trying to say that you might not be able to empathize with a black person in terms of experiencing racism), you're like.. "those black people are so uncivilized. they don't expect gay people. i can't go to their place." the same sorry ass attitudes can be found in the gay community towards nonwhites and things associated with them such as music. ready to draw the "race card" because it benefits you. you probably think the jamaicans are supposed to kiss your ass too as soon as you step off the plane on some "happy go lucky" shit too as if they aren't humans like how they do in those sorry ass tourism commericals despite the fact that you're stepping into THEIR island. (hate those by the way) so please.. stop with that brown nosing shit.

    and another thing... there's white jamaicans, asian jamaicans, and etc. yes, jamaicans come in many variations like how americans do. i like these topics because it exposes the ignorance of the folks when they're ready to talk shit and excuse how bigoted they are yet they want to act like they're BETTER or SMARTER. if you want to be pissed off with somebody, BLAME america, england, and europe for creating the miss. yes, missionaries which were basically white guys spreading christianity and jesus, telling folks that homosexuality is wrong to places like jamaica which didn't know shit about that. jamaica is one of those places that has been fucked up to shit simply to keep america and uk where it's at today so try to empathize before shitting on them. it's not their fault.


    Dude, you ain't got NO right to tell anyone to "shut up." This is a PUBLIC forum and you are not the king. Why do you have to turn everything into a race debate? Nobody hates Jamaica because it's Black. We hate it because it's full of a bunch of savages.....just like Iraq and Russian (and there are ZERO Blacks in those places. Save that silly race card for when it's needed. That angry Black man thing you got going on is stereotyping yourself even further.
