Some of the Main Reasons Why People from Barbados Hate Jamaicans

Author: Sheri Veronica
Author: Sheri Veronica

THE TRUTH IS, we were taught to hate JAMAICANS.  

As a little girl in primary school, our teacher taught us that Barbados was the jewel of the Caribbean.  We were taught that any mad/crazy slave or any slave who could not take instructions, were shipped off to Jamaica.  This was the mandate, I supposed in my little head (or was that taught to me also), of every Caribbean island.  Send the mad and aggressive slaves to Jamaica.  Then as time passed and you start to see clearer, meet people and question things, you soon realize that the insurgent slaves were the brave ones.  They were the men and women who could not be broken. 

There were the men and women who remembered their rich past and knew of their dark future away from their homes.  They didn’t need the new religion and they certainly didn’t need to bake in the sun!  As time went on, I learned of the MAROON settlement and of the slaves who fled to the mountains in Jamaica.  Obviously their quest for freedom continued and even the government fought to contain them!  

As mad/crazy as they were (supposedly), these humans knew they didn’t want to be slaves.  Call them what you might, but they were not getting on their knees!  I thought who are the mad people here, the ones who ran for their freedom or the ones who bowed down and remained slaves?

The sad part about this history is that Jamaicans came to believe the propaganda. They heard it so often and wanted their freedom so badly that they started to believe something must be wrong with them. Why didn’t they bow down and be normal?  Why are they so outspoken and demand the freedom to speak?  Why up to this very day are Jamaicans still considered aggressive, criminals and unduly outspoken?

TRUTH IS, Bajans and Trinis are not going to let up, so it’s up to you Jamaica to make your formal statement.   It’s up to you to see your strengths for what they are!

Respect!  Respect, Jamaica!

THE TRUTH IS this is why you are disliked, hated even, by other islanders, your other side of the family. You show them their weaknesses.  You show them their ‘yes sir, no sir’ shame.  You show them your strength in the face of all odds being stacked high against you.  You are an affront to other islands Jamaica!  You stand tall in rooms filled with short people.

TRUTH IS JAMAICA, heroes are never hailed by people who don’t know how to get off their knees.

Pure rubbish!!!!!…..I don’t know of a Bajan who doesn’t respect a Jamaican and those who are intimidated by Jamaicans for one reason or the other, even if the don’t want to visit Jamaica or have Jamaican friends, they still respect the Jamaican. So what is this rubbish about Bajans not liking Jamaicans? More propaganda, that’s all….kmt.

The author clearly wanted her post to go viral and it worked. Dear Veronica, I don’t know which part of Barbados you live but I am yet to encounter a Barbadian who hates Jamaicans as your article seems to suggest.

Your ancestors must be bowing their heads in shame. You claim to be descendants of the Maroon, yet you attack your brother and devise a mischief. Shame on you. Babylon give you a toy…….in your mind you turn cowboy. We came and the same ship.

And you are exactly right, I learned in history the exact thing, even to this day the American government still have a policy to not let in too much jamaicans in the U.S.

TRUTH! I have ALWAYS known that the East Indies had a problem with the Jamaican ( Cuban and Haitian). I don’t feel it is just a Barbadian problem as it is regional. This also exists in parts of Africa as well. A means set to keep Africans apart in the diaspora. I mean, what is not a better way to keep slaves from revolting as a whole. Right? The same issues go for African American where they were made to feel discouraged about people of the islands and also Africa-that they differ. For the east indian nations It is not… Read more »

Jamaicans are from the most aggressive tribes in west Africa, ( youruba, ashanti, fanti, etc. ) but all the island people’s are family.

Instead of writing this load of crap… Why does the author not ask Jamaicans to stop stealing the $4million reported by LIME to stop stealing the copper wire for residents of Manchester to have service…. Stupse

Kirk Campbell, i don’t know if you’re a jamaican but I’m one, and we are a very aggressive people, yes, aggressive. In the good and bad sense. I stood and see more than one person get bloodied for some simple thing. I see jamaicans work three jobs in the USA, so I’m not talking of what I don’t know.

Never before have I ever heard so much ignorance or seen such lies put on the internet. As an author, you must be doing so badly that you had to find some ignorance to stir up some attention. Utter rubbish!

I just want to know which primary school in Barbados you attended because I went through primary AND secondary school in Barbados and never have I been taught that the slaves who didn’t listen were shipped to Jamaica. What I DID LEARN was that slaves were shipped from island to island as trade between slave owners. Before you criticize Bajans and say oh they hate Jamaicans you might need to get your historical facts correct.

I can see this as embarrassing to admit. I mean, the Dominican (Republic) is embarrassed of their hate of Haitian people. Some will go as far as find a reason why the murder of Haitians is justifiable. This is a very embarrassing topic and a difficult pill to swallow. MOST racist people do not know that they are racists but simply just think and find a reason to dislike.
