MAD NEWS UK

Last night in honour of ‘Black History Month’ Channel 4 and independent production company Acme brought us the documentary‘My Crazy New Jamaican Life’.

Debbie, who’s 25, and Holly, who’s 19, are each immersed in or passionate about Jamaican culture, from X-rated bashment styles to food, patois or having a family with a Jamaican-born man.

Debbie has three children with Jamaican-born Variel. But when she discovers that Variel is about to have a child with another woman, she questions the conventions of the family structure that he expects.

Criminology student Holly lives in a predominantly white suburb in Kent. Turned off by the prospect of the local social and club scene, Holly dreams of acceptance in the alluring, expressive world of Jamaican bashment and begins going to club nights, often as the only white girl on the dance floor.

*HUGE SIGH*

Well as expected My Crazy New Jamaican Life

  1. Dat fat one Debbie used to go to my school.. Loool. They both need to accept they can talk and walk like a Jamaican but will never be one. I find it insulting how these two white females who kno nothing about are roots and culture can make a mockery of us.. They will never be able to walk in a black woman’s shoes..
