Samuel "Sam" Sharpe was the leader of a Maafa (slavery) rebellion in Jamaica in 1831 which became known as the Christmas Rebellion. The uprising lasted 10 days and spread throughout the entire island, mobilizing as many as 60,000 of Jamaica's 300,000 Maafa population. Sharpe born in Jamaica in 1801 and brought up in Montego Bay, was a literate and well respected deacon. Sam Sharpe is a National Hero of Jamaica.
"Crocodylus Acutus" is a large reptile that can be found in and around mangrove swamps and marshes primarily along the south coast of Jamaica as well as in smaller populations in uninhabited areas on some northern parishes like Trelawny. It is against the law to capture or kill a crocodile in Jamaica.
Jamaican retirees abandoning their homeland. The number of expats returning to Jamaica from places like Canada has fallen in half. Blame the island’s high crime rate. Yet, you won't see all this unpleasant stuff if you go to the touristy aspects of "beautiful" Jamaica and stay on the resort, or close to it. Interesting, that even Jamaican's returning to Jamaica still can't deal with the ignorance of the general population.
This is a photograph of the types of religion in Jamaica. 69 percent of Jamaica is christian others is ten percent and the rest is nonreligious. Jamaica doesn't have that many different religions so most customs in Jamaica are similar.
