Linda Jones is leading the fight to see that all Jamaicans are deported. “These people come over here looking for a better opportunity and I have a serious problem with that. How you come from not working at all but get to the Unified States of America and you want to work ten damn jobs? I mean a person has to fuck every now and then and then get some sleep at some point. You can’t do all that when all you do is work. I barely have enough time at my full-time job where I work 20 hours to do anything else. I be so damn tired. But these people come here and they just keep trying to show us Black Americans up. That aint right. I don’t need someone who looks like me trying to outshine me to these white peoples. They doing all kinds of jobs, then buying houses, and they send the money they making back home so more damn Jamaicans can come here from Jamaica. That aint the Black American dream.”
When it was explained to Ms. Jones that it’s actually the United States of America not the Unified States and that the American dream is to work, buy a home and support their family she explained further that that may be the American Dream but the Black American dream aint nothing like that. “The black American dream is all about seeing how much shit you can get away with. I got one cousin who is getting $1,200 a month in food stamps for her children and she don’t even have any damn kids. Supporting the damn family, what fantasy are you having? Black people don’t support no one. They only looking out for themselves. Shit, you see that little four-year-old n@#$a of mine lying over there on the floor. His ass bout to get out so he can start earning for himself. I can’t have no mouths around here that aint contributing to what I got going on. I’m trying to get my forty acres and a mule that the government owes me. I can’t even gets mines because these Jamaican people showing the white man that they willing to work for theirs. If they showing them that then I can’t never get what I got coming. These damn Jamaicans is ruining that by wanting to work and be good upstanding citizens. They wasn’t doing that shit in Jamaica. Over there they wasn’t doing nothing but smoking all that shit like Bob Marley and eating them damn sticks with the sugar in them. They need to go back to their own country with that uppity shit.”
With that Ms. Jones slammed the door and she could be heard yelling to her four-year-old to get his lazy ass up so he could walk to the store and get her a few loosie cigarettes.
