Jamaican is a nationality and ethnic group. The term racism applies; the truth is, 'race' is a social construct. There is no black or white 'race' either- those are two very broad terms for skin color. 

"Racisim' is the catchall term for bigotry based on skin color, ethnic or national association. Perhaps the better term is xenophobic but racism is the more recognizable term for most due to its erroneous use separating the white population from the Africans brought to the US and Europe as slaves to justify the slave trade. The practice of de-humanizing Africans as having no culture or identity by lumping every dark-skinned person together as the 'black race' was part of the program. 




Quoting Anonymous 1: Except Jamaican isn't a race. 😑
Quoting CStarz:

I'm sorry but it's hard for me not to think 'classic racist trope' when these statements are made.
