On the island of Long Island in the state of New York, there is a Jamaican community that is distinctly different from the rest of the country.
This is a truly magnificent and breathtakingly beautiful community with a lot to offer. What you’re about to read is unlike anything else I’ve ever encountered in my professional life. But, first and foremost, this remarkable community is in no way comparable to either the Hood or the Ghettos.
It didn’t take long for me to become more acquainted with this lovely neighborhood and its people.
While strolling through the streets of North Amityville on Long Island, I came across a fellow Jamaican dude who was chatting with a lady, whom I assumed was his mother, when I approached him.
This was my question:
• How is the community doing right now?
• This gives me enormous delight to see my own people prospering and living in an increasingly progressive & stand-up community.
As a result of this, the motherfuker has become hostile toward me.
I was utterly perplexed because I started working as soon as this dude and his mother gave me the side-eye, and stared me down.
I had no idea why they were so hostile! They seemed friendly as I was walking towards them.
But, one illustration of this was the level of hostility displayed. The exact nature of what I said incorrectly is still a mystery to me. My understanding of it has not changed!
Keep your Ego and Pride to yourself if you want to be on the safe side. It will save you the time and effort of having to deal with the problematic issues.
