i think some jamaican males can be sexy,
but they are a lot to deal with.
they do come with a lot and can have you here down bad.
i’ve heard the meats can be chef’s kiss,
but you might have to throw away the rest of the human.
one raging stereotype about jamaicans males:
They be homophobic af
sometimes they’ll be homophobic af,
but will still be trying to fuck the shit outta you.
wanted to let us know that in jamaica,
the COUNTRY OF JAMAICA,
that it isn’t the straight jamaican males that are committing hate crimes.
it’s actually “gay on gay” crimes of passion…
Because despite homosexuality still being considered illegal and punishable with up to 10 years in prison in Jamaica, Shaggy, who identifies as straight, insists things really aren’t that bad for LGBTQ people there.
“If you look at it, if you look at the ratio for people who live in Jamaica compared to homosexual crimes, most of it is crime of passion, homosexuals against homosexuals,” he said without citing any sources.
He made similar remarks in 2015, when he told Global News: “We don’t have all this gay-bashing crime. You don’t see that. It’s not there. That is not really happening in Jamaica.”
“Gays and lesbians should have the same rights as anybody else and when they’re in Jamaica, they do have the same rights. Nobody’s going around trying to kill them.”
i haven’t rolled my eyes this hard in a minute.
Are you drunk?
you can try to fool these americans if you want to.
reggae has talked about killing gay males since the beginning of time.
the beat for “chi chi man” from tok is everything,
but let’s not try to hide the lyrics sir:
From dem a par inna chi chi man car
Blaze di fire mek we bun dem!!!! (Bun dem!!!!)
From dem a drink inna chi chi man bar
Blaze di fire mek we dun dem!!!! (Dun dem!!!!)
sidebar: reggae gold albums use to be everything.
they should bring them back in streaming.
other reggae songs have spoken explicitly about their hate for anything gay.
it’s legit what drove many islands to accept homophobia.
now i don’t know if jamaica has changed in these last few years,
so he could be right.
Jamaican Foxhole: Is Jamaica a “gay on gay” hate country now?
it’s funny how shaggy was able to see how being treated unfairly sucks:
Speaking to Soundchat Radio, the Grammy Award winner was asked whether he’s ever felt unfairly demonized simply because he comes from a country that Time magazine once declared “the most homophobic place on Earth.”
“Clearly,” he said, “On every level.”
“I’ll tell you how bad it is. We were doing promo and I was supposed to go on a television show, and we put in request… And they did not accept me based on the fact that I was from Jamaica, and they were saying that I represent homophobia.”
He added, “Now, there is no track record of me doing this. But just the fact that I’m a reggae artist, right, and this is a mainstream television show and–it was me and Sting–and they wouldn’t mind keeping Sting, but I couldn’t come on because of that.”
i enjoy it when people get a lesson in experiencing what others may feel.
we hope they can learn and treat others with human decency going forward.
not saying shaggy is this person,
but i love when an asshole gets a good life lesson in “get it together“.
it really moisturizes my skin and curries my chicken.
