    Yardie Skeptics Radio (S. 2, ep. 23): Exploring Diaspora Issues

    in Education

    The Yardie Skeptics return this Sunday, September 21st at 12:30pm (11:30am Jamaican time) for our penultimate episode in season 2 as we explore the vast range of issues experienced by Diasporic Jamaicans. Why is there still ongoing tension between persons who live inside Jamaica who see themselves as "authentically" Jamaican, and Jamaicans living in the Diaspora who are constantly accused of being "deserters?" Diaspora members keep the economy afloat with a steady flow of foreign currency via remittances, but are scoffed at if the possibility of a Diasporic vote is ever mentioned. Local Jamaicans are the ones who have to deal with the every day realities and hardships of life at home and are tired of being chided as backward and archaic by Diasporic Jamaicans. 

    Can there be any reconciliation? Is it possible to harness the collective energy of each and every person who identifies themself as Jamaican regardless of geographical location? 

    Tune in as the Yardie Skeptics go on a guided tour of Diaspora issues with our special guest Rain Jarrett, adjunct professor of sociology at Florida International University. Wherever you are, if you call yourself a "Yardie" we want to hear from you!
