Beaten unmercifully by his mother and ONLY parent as a young child (called discipline by those who are unfortunately ignorant)his experience of being loved is very different than mine and, hence, his expressions of love come from a very physically and emotionally painful place. Before his death we were both born again Christians.The cross-cultural dynamic is very interesting, needless to say. You have noted that most of the families in te Caribbean (80-90%)are of African ethnicity and that they came as slaves to the region. It is better and more accurate to say that most of them are descendants of slaves that were brought to the region My Dearest in the Lord, Calvary greetings to you in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ.

I believe this article is very useful but I must comment that whilst it is true that some Caribbean males are "absent" from family lives, social factors such as colonialism, social class and race must be at the front of our minds in making this distinction.Alot of information that you will find on the Caribbean translated to the web will be very old and extremely dated I agree that the article is very informative and helps me to understand the of those in my current household.
The uncle who seems to continually blame my children for the things he is responsible for creating in addition to his comments degrading my son in which if I speak in his defense I am chastised and threaten to be kicked out.Love is reserved for pets and is rarely in evidence in inter-personal familial relationships.1/3 of my life has been wasted on loving a West Indian man, who carries a Bible around while ignoring 99% of the teachings therein.One key focus and view point has not been taken into account. I personally never make any choice without getting all the information and view points concerned. Thomas-1856 to 1930 went on to put Jamaica on the map by writing about it's birds, fauna & flora, and was the first man to cross the John Crow Mountains. Thomas lost his four Jamaican born sons, who became the first Jamaican Officers in the British Army in WW-1. Thomas would cross the racial divide which existed at that time, by marring my dear black grand mother Leonora Thomas who gave him four daughters. Thomas and they raised me and my brother right to become men I'm proud to be westindian one day I will raised a beautiful family of my own black american people need to know this.Consider yourself in my position, how would you feel if a major decision concerning your personal life was made without you being given the respect to speak for yourself and the opportunity to give your perspective. I always try to be fair to everyone in anything that I am involved. Thomas gave his life to help Jamaica become a safe society by fighting against Voo Do and Obeah that was brought from Africa. He also wrote books: Untrodden Jamaica-1890 and The Story of a West Indian Policeman- 1927, and lectured in the UK on Jamaica. These sons were from his first marriage to a white Jamaican lady Gertrude. Being married to a Caribbean man for more than 20 years, has left me broken.You can also Google: User Pages-info on Jamaican Police Inspector Herbert T.
