    By the way "smallie" doesn't hurt. Shouldn't even qualify as an insult. Its actually quite funny.

    you learned a lot BUT not EVERYTHING....

    I'm going to ask you this - not as an argument - but the opportunity hear an opinion

    Why were Jamican maroons differnt as described

    "Maroon communities emerged in many places in the Caribbean (St Vincent and Dominica for example), but none were seen as such a great threat to the British as the Jamaican Maroons.[9] A British governor signed a treaty promising the Maroons 2500 acres (10 km²) in two locations, because they presented a threat to the British. Also, some Maroons kept their freedom by agreeing to capture runaway slaves. They were paid two dollars for each slave returned.[10]

    Read through all the posts. lol. So heres my two cents. Normally most persons living within the region don't think about other persons living within the region. The thing is in islands that have a very small immigrant population the thought of what other persons are doing in their countries seldom crosses their minds. Persons have more pressing things to deal with such as whats going on in the society that they live in. Now the reason why certain islands might be vocal about certain immigrants is due to the large numbers of these immigrants within their society and the ever increasing presence of these said individuals. Its not so much that people targeting Jamaican's. I mean pick sense out of nonsense: in Antigua alone their are over 5,000 Jamaicans living here based on Government statistics and I am sure there are just as many in some of these other islands how many you hear getting deported on an annual basis from these islands. Not very many. The majority live and work peacefully within the societies. Nobody hates Jamaicans and there certainly not jealous or envious of them. The problem is you take every issue that speaks on a Jamaican to be about every Jamaican which is not the case. Now I will admit people will have some negative stereotypes (and by the way every island has negative stereotypes about each other) but it is due to the fact that Jamaica has been isolated for many years from the other islands. I say this to mean. While other island persons were moving and mixing Jamaicans kept to them selves that could probably explain the weird reception. Cause I mean nearly all the islands are similar in some way and nearly each person within the smalller islands have roots or family members in other islands. For example my great great grand father on my father side was from barbados and my great great great grand mother on my mothers side was from martinique. Now some persons might genuienly nah lub aryou (and those voices are the ones most often times than not heard) but most persons don't have nothing against you all. We might say stuff about you if you mash arwe corn but it is out of love. Like how two siblings fight when they have a disagreement. I mean look me get cuss off by people on islandmix and me nah bex with dem. Me nah hold dem up in mah 'tomac and say "boy me nah lub dis island yah". No me will cuss dem off and well after that I am all good. So akunamatata.

    Something struck a nerve?
    There you go proving my point in the clearest fashion once again. Now the discussion has been diverted towards "struck nerves"- okay LOL! I think that you really have trauma dealing with the underbelly and economic reality of your country that affect so many of your countrymen. So clearly any citing of record breaking are nothing short of you running from the pain of the fact that these tiny "smallies" are destination of hope for your people. As some else said poor boast! But I do not expect you to get this because it is rooted in reality.

Go to any Jamaicans site and you won't see any discussions at all about smallies. We probably discuss African Americans more, and that's because of the music. We discuss Africa more, because we have a lot of Pan Africanist in our culture. We don't go around searching the internet, for negative stories about a specific group to post on a forum. We don't go around creating Jamaica vs threads.

    You people should stop making things up in you mind, because it's fueling your hatred. You won't see any Jamaican acting arrogant about our achievements, just like any culture, once we have achieve something we are very proud. The problem is that for some reason, people really hate it when Jamaicans are proud. We don't go forcing our culture on anyone, they embrace it on their own.

    Jamaicans are no different from other cultures who commit crimes, such as the Italian mob, Hispanics in gangs etc. Nowadays you have to read Jamaicans news papers, to hear about Jamaicans committing crimes. Of course when a Jamaican does commit a crime in another country, I'm sure it will be blown up, and smallies will be posting it all over their forums.

    Go anywhere they are Jamaican communities, and an you will see that Jamaicans are peaceful people. You will see successful Jamaican businesses, you will see Jamaicans in the work place who are always chosen to be managers, or supervisors. I live in south Florida and Jamaicans in south Florida live in middle class or upper class communities. The demographic in Miramar is mostly Jamaicans, a lot of Jamaicans live in Pembroke pines.

    The success of our culture, has brought a lot of focus on the negative. Crime is a part of any culture with a large population, ask Trinidad why they have trouble managing crime, even though they are oil rich.

    Jamaica has supported integration and has not benefited. As another person hear says Jamaica is too much of a burden right? Jamaican supermarket are stocked with products from Trinidad, while they attempt to block our products, so who's not supporting economic unity. Jamaica have some of the richest people in the Caribbean, however Jamaica has a country is poor due to inept leadership. Then again managing a population of almost 3 millions is different from managing a population of 200000 or less.
    Namey, I believe you've misread my post. No on in their right mind would doubt the success of Jamaicans worldwide. Jamaicans and West Indians in general have a history of going to places like the UK and the US in particular and achieving tremendous success. There is no argument there. There is also nothing wrong with Jamaicans or people from other Caribbean nations for that matter being proud of their achievements and even displaying a bit of arrogance.

    The problem lies with Jamaican arrogance spilling over into a complex of superiority and their dismissive attitudes towards the smaller islands. Mind you....I am speaking based upon my experiences with those that I've encountered mostly in college and as a DJ in Atlanta over the past 22 years.

    Most West Indians that I know have the utmost respect and love for Jamaican culture and music. Many of us even copy Jamaican patois every now and then which is a testament to the cultural influence Jamaica has throughout the Caribbean.

    Namey, you would have to have an "Out-of-Jamaica"(out-of-body) experience to really see what most of us experience with some (not all or most) Jamaicans. When you're on the outside looking in you have the ability to see through the eyes of objectivity and non-biases.

    You've mentioned that people are envious of Jamaican achievements and that fuels their hatred. That is so far from the truth. Barbados has one of the richest economies and one of the highest literacy rates in the Caribbean. Yet I don't think I've seen a thread or read a post or heard of anyone hating Barbadians for their success. We are just reporting what we've observed. Most of us aim to use Barbados' economic and academic models as blueprints for our success.

    So there is no malice and hate towards Jamaica.....just love. But sometimes you have to let big brother know when he's out-of-order.
