You should all feel ashamed for even watching that commercial.  How dare white people make the insinuation that Jamaicans are happy and friendly.

Isn't the racist thing that this "multicultural agency" believes only black people can have Jamaican accents?  I know a couple of white people and asian people who grew up in Jamaica.

natazha: Just like the time there was a campaign to take the Speedy Gonzales cartoons off the air, because Hispanics would find them offensive. Offensive that the little Mexican guy always wins? They loved him!

Maybe they had a problem with his cousin.
