Every culture and "race" on earth is the same -in that they all have kind, accepting people -as well as racist, ignorant people. Each country on Earth is capable of producing prophets and serial killers alike. Each human thinks for themself, and the more enlightened, intelligent people realize skin color is nothing to judge someone by. Remember His words "Until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes..." Immagine if people were "racist" according to eye color.. rediculous, right? Same with skin color. If one sees black and white and asian..etc.. they see differences --thier mind is limited. One should know all people, regardless of color and creed, are the same people. We are all made from the same mud. We all bleed the same blood. Each person feels pain, and has a fragile body.
Each race has it's place... Ham, Japhet, and Shem were brothers, though, and each was to serve the other. Ham was supposed to inherit the birthright, Shem was to serve Ham, and Japhet was to serve both his brothers. Ham's descendants inherited Africa, Shem's -Asia, and Japhet -Europe (in general.. there is more to it obviously) Ok, this is just the history... so why the pride? Why does one race ever feel superior? There is no reason for it. Service to one's brother is nothing negative. We know Africa is the land of Kings, but Jah made Europe and Asia also... Jah made all people... If they find men on Mars.. Jah made them too. Racial bickering is for the simpleminded.
I guess all I am saying is you might find a few racist Jamaicans, I know there are some. But I bet you will find more love and acceptance than anything. The Jamaican people are generally very intelligent --and close to Jah. Did you notice the hurricaine that devastated Haiti was going directly toward Jamaica, then at the last minute, dodged Jamaica -then got right back on the same path and kept going. Why?
I and I hope you enjoy the trip and learn plenty.
Selassie I Bless.
