Out of Many One People

Growing up in Jamaica exposed me to different types of people and taught me not to judge someone based on their appearance. I would go to the store and speak to a "Chinese looking" person who had the thickest Jamaican accent ever. While America, New York specifically, is prided as the melting pot, I was never conscious of discrimination until I moved here! Now I have a heightened sensitivity, maybe we can learn something from Jamaica where we are able to live together in unity despite the color of your skin.
