Some Common Misconceptions About Jamaicans

1. We do not sit and around and smoke weed all day long. Of course we could, if we wanted to, because we grow lots of really really good weed but weed is not free and we are a poor 3rd World Country. Only rich Americans can afford to sit around and smoke weed all day, which is why we export it to you.

2. We do not listen to Bob Marley’s music all day long. We listen to his sons’ music all day long. (Bob had several sons, most of whom are musicians. – Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Steven Marley, Ziggy Marley, Julian Marley and Kymani Marley.)

3. We do not say “yeah mon” in every sentence. You’re pretty sure you heard your Jamaican friend in the cubicle next to you say those very same words just a few minutes ago? Well, yeah mon, I’m sure he did but he was probably just making fun of you.

4. We do not sit around on the beach all day growing our dreadlocks and tanning. We’d like to, but people have work to do, mon.

5. Forget that Cool Runnings crap the average Jamaican does not spend his weekends bobsleighing down Blue Mountain peak.

6. We are not the most violent people on earth. Though we’re not the least bit proud of it, according to United Nations statistics, we’re the 4th most violent people on earth. Check your facts son. Don’t get it twisted.

7. Not of all us can run fast like Usain Bolt. We could if we wanted to but who wants to get all sweaty and stuff.

8. When we migrate to other countries we do not work 18 part time jobs. With the world economy being the way it is we’re lucky if we can get 4 or 5 part-time jobs.

9. Jamaica is not a small island in the Caribbean Sea. Jamaica is a global super-power, a force of nature, a world dominator, and a state of mind.

10. We don’t immediately say “bumboclaat” when we get mad. C’mon mon, we’re way more creative than that. We also say rassclaat, mummaclaat, bloodclaat, sicclaat etc.

11. We’re not all expert dancers who immediately “bruck out” and do all kinds of complicated moves the minute a dancehall song is played. BUT, (and please don’t take this the wrong way) even the oldest, blindest, least co-ordinated, most arthritis-afflicted Jamaican has more rhythm than almost anyone else in the world. And you know this.

12. Only Jamaicans born in Jamaica have real Jamaican accents and you cannot acquire one by saying things like “irie”, “booyakah” and “yuhsimi” in every sentence.

13. Not every Jamaican man has 14 babymothers. Some of us have 15.

14. Not every Jamaican woman has a beautiful figure like Shelly Ann Fraser-Price. We are a God-bless country but we’re not that lucky.

15. We are not always trying to be beat the system. Ok, that’s not true. Yes, we are. But that’s because the system is designed to keep us down and it is our patriotic duty as Jamaicans to defeat it.

16. We’re not all smiling and super-friendly like you see in the Tourist Board ads on tv. We’re even nicer than that. Yuhseet mon?

Jamaican Ganja Business {video}


Jamaica’s first medicinal marijuana company, Medicanja, launched this year against a backdrop of reinvigorated debate around ganja law reform among leading policymakers. The renowned Jamaican scientist Dr. Henry Lowe, a leader in THC studies for medical purposes, is running the company with the University of West Indies and the University of Technology jointly funding the facility. In addition to studying the scientific benefits of marijuana, Dr. Lowe says the company will produce CBD-based medical products, which fall under legally accepted medicinal use of the ganja plant. Lowe says the plant extract can be used to treat psychosis and severe pain, as well as mid-life crises in men.

Throwback Video Bob Marley New Zealand Interview 1979

Yes, well, I see myself as a revolutionary. You cant get any help, and I don’t take any bribe from anyone, I fight it single handed – with music! Rasta is the future – You see? Yes, rasta is the future, that’s good…

Excellent Interview from the Great Bob Marley

Bob: Herbs a plant. Why these people that wants to do so much good for everyone calling themselves governments and this and that. Why they say you must not use the herb? You say um um we find that you mustn’t use it because IT MAKES YOU REBEL..AGAINS T WHAT? AGAINST MEN WHO ARE SCRAVEN/CRAVEING (NOT SURE)Dem(they) crave for material things to captivate your mind and want to tell you, you have to work and put you on pension and THEY keep it all. So herb make you look upon yourself instead of you wanting to work for the man (greedy corrupt governments) AND YOU WANT TO BE ONE OF THE MAN TOO! Not in the sense of how him is but in the sense of why you have to bow to these things.

The media part: Bob: MEDIA! As If I ran(own) a newspaper I would do allot of interviews, because what I want to say would get across. If/when I talk to someone it goes to someone and they inherited to fit their business, and if too militant and they try for to spread a type of propaganda I mean media is media

Bob said That the government basically created a false reality in that we have to work, in order to get pension, health care, because they planted a seed of greed within us so we dwell on materialistic things. While the government at the end takes everything. Herb makes you meditate and realize life and then makes you rebel! The media are just propaganda if you own a media outlet you would use it to get your own ideas to influence the news.

Bob Marley Is Blamed For Teenage Drug Use In Kerala, India

Bob Marley has been dead for almost 33 years, but it appears police in Kerala, India are putting the blame on the late reggae singer, when it comes to teenage drug use.

 

A report from the The Times of India states that police in Kerala have made attempts to make the city safer by seizing marijuana and other recreational drugs during raids. But, along with drugs, police have confiscated anything that has an image of the marijuana plant, as well as anything that has an image of Bob Marley. This includes T-shirts; bumper stickers; key chains; and bracelets.

Marley fans know that he was a proponent of the drug, and a report from The Inquisitr states that he even used it during Bible discussions. But some Kerala residents believe that Marley should not be brought up, when it comes to raising awareness about drug use amongst teens in India.

“Please keep Bob Marley away from the issue,” said one person, who was listed as Kevin in the report.

Kevin added that he doesn’t find marijuana symbols “attractive.”

“If you like such tees, wear it in a country where marijuana is legalized,” he said. “You don’t have to show the world that you are smoking up and that’s why you are so cool. It’s a stupid thing to do.”

NG Suhruth Kumar, a civil police officer, told Indian magazine Open that they “have caught around 200 students for using ganja.” And a lot of them had something related to the reggae icon, when they were caught.

“Most of them had Bob Marley songs on their cell phones, and stickers of marijuana leaves on their bikes. These children are attracted to drugs by Bob Marley songs,” Kumar said.

Police in Thrissur and Thiruvananthapuram have raided any shops that sell T-shirts, key chains, and bracelets that feature Bob Marley. One unnamed street vendor in Thrissur didn’t know who Marley was, but he has noticed that T-shirts with an image of the late reggae singer have been a “huge demand” for teenagers.

“I have been selling T-shirts for more than 15 years,” he said. “I never knew that this man is trouble, and that selling such T-shirts is a crime.”

He has temporarily closed his shop out of fear of being cited by police under Section 3 (1) Young Persons (Harmful Publication) Act of 1956, which prevents the “the dissemination of certain publications harmful to young persons.”

Activist and filmmaker KP Sashi calls the whole thing “ridiculous.”

“If the police want to fight marijuana dealers, they should do it more smartly,” Sashi said. “Chasing Bob Marley lovers in disguise in a drive against drugs is nothing short of cultural policing. These cops don’t know anything about Bob Marley; they think that he was only a guy who promoted drugs.”

And even though this issue has received plenty of criticism, Suhruth Kumar said police won’t drop their belief that Marley is part of the marijuana problem.

“Bob Marley might be a good musician, but it is indeed true that the drug mafia is using him as an idol to sell their products,” he said. “When we interrogated them, we understood that many of these youngsters addicted to drugs are Bob Marley fans. His song, Ganja Gun, has been found on the mobile phones of several of these young people.”

Some students in Fort Kochi have launched a “Save Bob Marley” movement. One student, Anuraj K, said that none of the students in the area are “addicted to drugs” because of Bob Marley.

“We see his music in connection with the call for freedom of the oppressed, and not with the promotion of drugs,” he said.

K added that he plans on wearing a Bob Marley T-shirt every day in protest against the police.
