Response to Wounded Bear (Reply #15)

54. "... the majority of Jamaicans are of African descent.. "

"The first Africans arrived in Jamaica in 1513 as servants to the Spanish settlers. These Africans were freed by the Spanish when the English captured the island in 1655. They immediately fled to the mountains where they fought to retain their freedom and became the first Maroons.

Whole boatload of Google telling all about it..
