    Before everyone put you on blast I really thought Carib had those labels now....I was like WOW, that's sad.


    Back to the subject at hand, you're Jamaican? Why you feel that way?

    If you end up being raised in Jamaica, then you are Jamaican. If they rush you back to Trinidad shortly after birth then you are Trinidadian.

    In reality, you are a Trinimaican.

    As any Trinidadians would raise their children...they Trini.


    This is a supposition however and I'm using Trini and JA, though this question can be applied across the Caribbean.

    My cousins who were born in SVG and raised in Barbados and Trinidad, identify as Trinidadians and Bajans. Those born in Trinidad and raised in SVG identify as Trini-Vincies.

    Oddly, those who were born and raised in Aruba and Curacao consider themselves Vincies.

    No no no - take US/Canada/Europe, etc out of the equation. That's a whole other thread.

    So, you say they Jamaican?

    So your land of birth trumphs upbringing? Generally speaking.
