Why do people try to avoid the black race? ooh why? whereis the world going to? people are not proud of thie herritage. now iread that seal is half African Nigerian and Half South American from Brazil?? ooh God, go to his native home land in Lagos and youll see his mother there, ps she’s fully black african. No signs of Brazil in her, she probably even doesnt know that country exisits
@Betty boo, Afro Jamaican, Afro Trinidadian, Afro-American= BLACK. She s black but parents are from Jamaica and Trinidad. Not all blacks come from Africa these days.
Just simply say she’s black and add another column for country then only you can mention shes from Jamaica
The person owning or operating this is just so not educated, i will not even try to urgue with you.
They probably mean black Jamaican.
Jamaican is not ethnicity. Its where you’re from. As part jamaican I find this offensive. There are chinese jamaicans, caucasian jamaicans, spanish jamaicans. So please get this fixed.
