The Jamaica of today is certainly not the Jamaica that I knew as a boy growing up in pre-independent Jamaica.
This is a story of a man born into a family where intolerance and un-acceptance existed, as it did affect my mothers relationship with my father in a negative way mainly because of his skin color. What I have grown to understand is that human behavior is complicated when it comes to racism, which cannot be blamed on any one group of people. If it was not for the basic structure of my childhood rearing which was a positive one, it always carried me throughout my life.
