Well, when I decided to write this I had to ask myself whether or not if I should pursue this article. I was born and raised in this country, I don't like some of the things that have taken place in this country, and I really don't like the things that have taken place, and continues to take place, in this country that have impacted my ethnicity. What I will say is that I'm all in at the moment, because I own a home here and have a business here. Most of my family is here in the United States; some are in Jamaica. I will say that if an individual is born and raised in a place he or she needs to know about that place to be able to "maneuver" effectively, as possible, in that place. So, here it goes!
