But the problem I jave is that Americans have not been able to recognize my accent. some refuse to believe that I am jamaican. that some tomes unclude Jamaicans though.
    until I prove that I know more wbout jamaica than them. </div></div>

    </div></div>There are lots of Jamaicans who don't like Curry but not many I know who don't like Pepper. As for jerk it was not very common to all of Jamaica until say about the late 80s...my guess.

    I love curry and pepper, I even put both in rice!
