(1) A native or inhabitant of the Caribbean nation of Jamaica.
(2) Of or relating to Jamaica or it's people.

(3) A person who is of full or partial ancestry of Jamaica, whether it be through a parent/parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. etc.

Not all Jamaicans are dark-skinned/West-African descendants. Jamaicans come in all races and ethnicities. The national motto of Jamaica is "Out of Many One People." So like the U.S. Jamaica has descendants of Europeans, Africans, Asians, Natives (Arawaks) East Indians, etc. etc... But unlike the U.S. Jamaicans are not labeled with an ethnicity in front of their nationality. For example blacks in the U.S. are labeled African American but blacks in Jamaica are just called Jamaican. Whites in the U.S. are called Caucasian or White Americans but whites in Jamaica are just simply called Jamaican. Jamaicans are one of the most diverse and uniquely cultured people so if you don't know any Jamaicans I suggest you find yourself one. We have the best food, music, weed, language, and people. We are underrated but TURNT asf!!!

People who are very nice, they have cool accents and dont always smoke weed or ganja. Jamaicans are heavily stereotyped as people with accents who always say "rasta", "mon", "wha'kwan" and cant speak English. The most heavilly stereotyped aspect of the Jamaican race is that that smoke/deal in weed or ganja. They usually dont and you are an dumb asshole if you think so. Jamaicans are also stereotyped for their accent and are used as drug dealers in movies and video games. We need to stop learning from that shit and face the real facts, i know many Jamaicans and they are awesome.

Bastiaan: Brethren, dont stereotype my you shit.
