THE CASE OF JAMAICA IN THE 70s

So here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2, “Sipple Out Deh: Jamaica’s Roots Generation and the Cultural Turn”. It talks about how what I call the experience of Jamaica’s “roots generation” was prophetic in many ways of the hip-hop generation.

Anyway the point of comparison with Haiti of last week: Aid and loans are the carrot the U.S. uses to keep the Caribbean in line, embargos and destabilization–usually through street thuggery–are the stick. The results are all too predictable. Instability is the rule, not the exception.

Read it today! I may have to take this down soon!
