Black ppl aren't the only ones who can have Jamaican accents. I've met plenty of Indian, Asian, Hispanic & White ppl in Jamaica with ridiculously strong accents.

This is just much ado about nothing. Some ppl just need to constantly be in a state of "I'm offended" to feel relevant.

i agree.. 
i have met and seen many ppl from the carib with accents who are not black. 

i could see it if this was something negative like those ppl being mean or rude or stupid.. but if anything its a positive imitation.

Anyway,

I was going to say, the JA Tourism Board released a statement last week saying they didn't take issue with the VW commercial.

A HUGE DIFFERENCE from how they responded to Drake's "Find Your Love" vid which glorified JA gangs, etc and was loudly denounced by the JA Tourism Board.
