You can think the ANC for that.

Re: Jamaica

IMO, the greatest Jamaican public figure ever was not Bob Marley, but the late twice PM, total of 3 terms (socialist) Michael Manley. He was mixed race, but looked pretty much white. IMO, his accent is far closer to Dutch (or Afrikaaner) than "stereotypical Jamaican".

Jamaicans will respectfully disagree with you as Manley being their greatest public figure There was so much upheaval when he ruled.. Meanwhile, he sounded like a typical Jamaican who was educated in Britain, Canada or the U.S.
Edward Seaga who was the Prime Minister after Manley was also white looking-technically he is an American since he was born to Jamaican parents in Boston--dude went to Harvard too..





and speaking of Jamaica's greatest public figure, I'd like to wish a Happy Earthday to the late great Robert Nestor Marley..

One of my fav Bob Marley songs... I saw him perform it live in NY or Boston in 1980

lol. If I'd made my point you wouldn't be writing such crap. Yeah I know your aim is to get a reaction but still "even Jamaica" ? Nah mah man. There are many places where you can go get your xenophobia on but thankfully Jamaica isn't one of them.

BTW no white people or only xenophobic black people - no Bob Marley, no Barack Obama.

“My father was white and my mother black, you know. Them call me half-caste, or whatever. Well, me don’t dip on nobody’s side. Me don’t dip on the black man’s side nor the white man’s side. Me dip on God’s side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white, who give me this talent.” - Nesta Robert (Bob) Marley
'nuff said. Most Jamaicans feel the same hence the national motto. Xenophobes (of whatever ethnicity) step off.

Re: White Jamaicans

Staying on the topic of surpise in corners of the world?

Did you know there are Chinese South Africans?
The inresting thing about this is that, in post aprtheid South Africa, the Chinese South Africans went to court demanding to be classified as "Blacks".

Why?
They claim they were discriminated against during apartheid era just like backs, and therefore deserve to be compensated for past discrimination just like blacks are.
Guess what? They won and... are now are blacks
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7461099.stm


I read a story, which I hope South Africans)s on this TF(ranfurly ) can attest the veracity of, ... or set me straight that it belongs in fiction
Apparently, in the crazy world of white apartheid race-obsessed minds, they had a specific classification for the following people of these countries
  • Mainland Chinese were non-whites
  • Taiwan Chinese were whites
  • Japanese and Koeans were also whites
No word about the Singapore, Hongkong.. chinese

Re: White Jamaicans

the term used for the japanese and some other groups by the apartheid regime was "honorary whites":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honorary_whites

this illustrates well how the underlying reasons for the institutional racism had their roots in the economy and social class. the first and most advanced capitalist countries were in western europe and populated by whites. once asian tigers started to rise you had to give them a special status in the absurd racist system. saying openly "this is actually about how rich you are" wouldn't go down well with white people who happened to be poor. in this way they could feel privileged.

more on topic, since i see people are talking about jamaican "accent", jamaican is actually considered a separate language. well, there is jamaican standard english and jamaican creole. in its most basic from creole is hardly intelligible to speakers of english. most people speak something that's between standard english and creole.

The Dangerous Rise of Chinese Media in Africa

February 8, 2013


CCTV Africa

AFRICANGLOBE – Amidst Western media stories of China’s “exploitation” and “neo-colonialism”, now the emerging superpower wants to tell its own African story.

China’s growing role in Africa is no secret. Its expansive resource-backed infrastructural projects are widely reported on and the $200 billion/year trade between China and Africa has been turning heads around the world.

Sino-African relations are covered abundantly in Western and African media. But now, China wants to narrate its own stories. Concerned that the loudest stories of China-Africa relations being heard are ones of exploitation, neo-colonialism, and the propping up of dictators, China’s central government has initiated a big media push to offer a counterbalance to Western narratives.
