Jamaica News:
1. At one stage in my 20’s I was very definitely not into any Rasta ‘business.’
2. Some sort of class bias based on what I had heard was influencing me and, even when I was part of a disco in the late 1970’s, I was very partial to American soul music instead of Jamaican ‘rockers.’
3. It didn’t help that while I was in the ackee of PNP support and voted for the first time for Michael, my two young boys, while going to Jamaica House Basic school caught head lice. It was my late mother who guided me and Ann-Marie on the process to rid my children of head lice.
4. Now no music soothes me like Marley and the old ska and rocksteady classics of the 1960’s and forward. I have evolved from the 1970’s.
5. I find it appalling that in 2018 Jamaica, children at school have to be forced to have their parents defend them for wearing locks. If the child had his or her hair shaved clean, would the school complain and demand that the child have hair?
6. These pockets of discrimination are from the dunce set of people who have not grown. Were I a school principal in the 1970’s I would be just like them. But people have to socially evolve and grow. It’s called sense.
