            few enterprises have lasted across decades... But this one has lasted not merely decades but existed in different centuries and different millennia!!!!.

            Not only that but it inspired academic work... Albeit a really terrible and very banal MSC project was written about sex tourists... (maybe by a sex tourist as well) and portrayed these sad moral degenerates who exchange cash for sexual validation from young nubile male gigolos renta-dreds if u will and seeking otherness to give meaning to their empty existence in a cold uncomfortable milieu ... But it took a light hearted fluffy, poin less throwaway comments i made giving them meaning beyond their actual importance, and featured them as a font of the entire body opinion of Jamaicans on Jamaicans.com and the entire island!..

            Hell of achievement in terms of longevity and academia!!!!!

            Not bad for a JC Alumni!

                Congratulations Jamaicans.com for the social media experience!


                It was 1996 -- we were donating used computers to schools in rural towns in Jamaica. My husband had a contact at this place called Florida East Coast Travel who put him in contact with a Jamaican community worker in Florida by the name of Xavier Murphy. Unfortunately, Xavier could not join us in our volunteer program as he was already involved in his own Jamaican community efforts. But he told us to check out his Jamaicans.com web site. That was in 1996 and it was the old treaded message board format. I joined and stayed on as a member to this day.


                My participation here has dwindled since I lost my husband to cancer over a year ago but Jamaicans.com has remained to this day to be my only constant social media experience. This site became "home away from home" and the place to be whenever I needed a good bellyful of laughs. Thank you Xavier for keeping Jamaicans.com alive!
