Anonymous asked: That message about the Jamaican language just threw me back into A-Level English classes, when we were studying a book based on Jane Eyre (I think??) called Wide Sargasso Sea, and my teacher (who was racist, manipulative and a bully but that's for another time) would NOT let anyone say any of the Jamaicans spoke English, and she'd literally grade us down for it. Why? "Because Jamaicans don't speak English, they're not /proper enough/. They speak /patois/." I just... ugh.
of course Jamaicans speak English
just because they have unique words and an accent that many can’t understand doesn’t mean Jamaicans don’t speak English
your teacher was an idiot

dreaming-firework asked: Nissi, please forgive me in advance if i'm asking this incorrectly: what language do Jamaicans speak? Do they consider it English or is there another word for it? Like, I absolutely love it and the accent. I'm asking because some words sound like English and others don't. I'm also asking because I just heard Stephen Marley talk at the end of a song and it drove me crazy.
Jamaicans speak English
but informally they speak patois
the word patois literally means non standard language
Jamaicans read and write and speak english
but they also speak Patois

Anonymous asked: Do you or should people compare institutional farming and the slavery of humans (particularly black) ? Or is it insensitive?
I mean industrial.
you don’t need to compare and equate the two. doing those kinds of comparisons is lazy and a detriment to movements that aim to assert black humanity.
the horrors black people have and do endure, and the horrors animals endure are terrible. but you don’t need to equate the two in order to paint an image of injustice. it’s so lazy. really
I am Jamaican American

Anonymous asked: How do you feel about some Africans hating us African Americans? It's unfortunate because some Africans that do hate us only hate us from just the stereotypes that our society betrays us as. I just pray that one day we can unite once again. What are your views?
Some black people look down on other black people because they subscribe to the same stereotypes of blackness that the oppressor created.
Many black people support and respect all black people, regardless of where they can trace their ancestry to.
I choose to focus on the latter.
