    Are Caribbean people abroad being selfish?

    Are Caribbean people like us living abroad (2nd/3rd gen included) being selfish while our families back home suffer from corruption, high crime rates and "brain drain"?

    what should be expected of caribbean people living abroad?

    and are 2nd and 3rd generation people even still considered caribbean?
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    Many people living in the Caribbean are better off than those living abroad so it all depends.

    If you are doing well abroad then you can always transfer money regularly to family and friends in the Caribbean who are suffering if you still care for them and believe that will make a difference.

    Yeah good question

    This struck me when I was in the uk how when I asked Caribbean people where they from what i was expecting to hear Jamaican or Lucian or whatever - they would say " British"

    Maybe British society there is a higher pressure to be British vs America as a place where people can be more fre to be another culture

    Anybody I know that could afford to go carnival fetes, carnival boatrides and play mas for $$$$ deh eh need no barrels or money. I hate when people go home and play big timer but working 2-3 damn jobs just to make ends meet, there is a lot of this going on. Thats why people home think foreign is ah bed of roses no matter what you tell them, tell them anything different and they think you just dont want them to come up.
