Whatcha saying, CE? That the books we read in school, the books they instructed us from back home, taught us naught?

Yes Sandy ... a lot of them ... they were very instrumental in keeping us tied to Europe and not always in positive ways ... we were supplier of minerals and raw materials ... which gave Europe the opportunity to develop their industries and not ours ... and then the finished good shipped back for purchase ... think of lost jobs and profits ... and paid very little for those raw material too ...

You're saying that we were treated as slaves, working our fingers to the bone and Europe reaping the benefits, huh.   Well, I guess most our ancestors didn't see it that way. They were happy to be able to put food on the table for their families, happy to have a job. Most of the islands broke away from England in order to be independent. I think they still get support from England- maybe not as much as they got before. Why try to be independent when you still have to rely on others?

Hi Everyone I am an American student doing research on the Jamaican culture. I am critiquing these books as part of my research. I was reading the poem Ysassi-Defender of Jamaica. I see how this poem portrayed the Jamaicans as not victorious but they were also portrayed as fighters and a group of people who did not give up. How do you feel about this? Are there other examples in these writings that support the fact that these books portrayed Jamaicans in a negative light?

I've not read the poem, but to me J/cans are not negative. They're fighters and takes what they want, regardless.

Google Jamaica and you'll get more info.
