  4. A dis mi a chat bout. When mi a a talk a mi yard mi sista a tel mi say a ear de hat are . I am a well educated girl who always pass her English test, but at the same time I am a proud country Jamaican. When u go a uptown the little idiot then luv skin up them nose , yes dem fi kin it up inna the polluted city, and not at this proud country girl. Keep doing u thing my girl

  5. Yes “JUDGE MI” a long time mi waan smadi adres dis, turning up their noses at a language that is only unique to us is appalling. I have always said Jamaica is a bilingual country whether they like it or not.
