Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

Comments on the Imus Issue

Moving Back to Jamaica means bringing back some of what we have learned about racism from other countries.

It also means gaining some insight into how some people can use victimhood as a professional tool to advance themselves.

This article is a great encapsulation on a very different take on the Imus episode.

I think there are some lessons in this article for us in Jamaica, as our dancehall artistes seem to be thriving on a combination of lyrics devoted to misogyny, gun violence and homophobia, according to this brilliant article from the Jamaica Observer.
