For awhile Trinidad has been making life very hard for Jamaicans. Although we are supposed to be in CARICOM, (sort of an E.U.) Jamaicans are harassed at the airports, and many, refused landing. Some might be students, trying to attend the branch of the University of the West Indies, some might be visiting friends, others, tourists. But they are turned back. Trinidadian goods load the shelves in Ja. If you walk up an aisle there are so many Trini goods that if you don't read the labels, you'll go home with Port of Spain. Despite the Ja market, Trinidad is as hard to get into as America. Now for years, I've been reading labels, and I don't buy Trini goods. The only thing I do purchase is the coconut oil, since it is 1/5th the price of local. And not all the time. Maybe if enough of us in Yard stopped buying Trini goods, they'll treat us better.

I think that the people of Yard should boycott those Trini goods. Hopefully, that will make for better treatment of the Jamaican people. I also look for made in the USA good to buy. Guess we all have to do what helps the citizens of a country.
