Yes people from the Caribbean are color struck. I have friends from the Caribean saying they want to have kids with a white or asian man because they only want “pretty children.” I think its sad that they go through life thinking like that.

Oh, it was great! It’s such a beautiful place. I wish I could spend almost everyday there, or anywhere in the Carib. for that matter. Very chilled lifestyle. Def check it out one day. I’d like to have a Vacation home there no day. LOL @ you saying “jungle” by the way. That got me, ofcourse there are no jungles. Beautiful forests, waterfalls, sunglight, and beaches though…Oh, did I mention the MUSIC!!! Ohhhhhhhh-weeeeee

Lala. Id love to check out Jamaica too. I especially want to check out the jungles and beaches and live music. how was the nature there?

I love this girl. As a person of mixed heritage with Jamaican being a part of it, I truly love her even more. I love when she speaks Jamaican broken english!!! She’s gorg. I always suspected the Chinese because of her eyes.
Her mom is Chinese and black but kind of dark, I saw picture of her, and her dad is white.
I love the Jamaican culture, I spent 2 weeks there a couple of months ago with family. It was great!!! The thing about the many Caribbean people is they treat you differently when your mixed or light skinned, as though your special as a result of it. The power of colonialism, I tell you!!! I was praised for being light but surprisingly mocked for my hazel/green eyes.
