Most foreigners seem to think that Bob Marley is all our uncle.
And by extension of being related to Uncle Bob, we’re all avid listeners of Reggae.
However, what we may call a downside to these national characteristics is the stereotypes that seem to spring from them.
Foreigners that have certain perceptions of our country that vary from relatively untrue to downright ludicrous.

Those especially with visa appointments and flights to catch will make it clear that this stereotype is just that, a stereotype. Jamaicans are violent – seeing as we have the 6th highest global murder rate (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)), one may be able to see why this stereotype exists.
Knowing that there is a mass of our population who take more to Dancehall, I think we can all agree that this is a false stereotype. Jamaican man = cheater – given the existence of articles like “5 Things You Need to Know When Dating a Jamaican Man” on hypelifemagazine.com, one can infer that our Jamaican men have made quite a name for themselves in the wider world.
One of those names, according to the typical foreigner, is ‘cheater’.
