What about national pride? Most have a sense of nationalism to varying degrees of strength.

T&T (like Guyana) is not a hurricane territory but given climate change all bets are off.

Yes, probably right.

Generally, Yardies personify the confidence of the region. Trinis clamor for recognition they feel they deserve.

Ok, let's keep it real.

Jamaicans are responsible in many foreign lands, England especially, for the decrease in violence towards Caribbean people and others, as they stood up to the Rude Boys etc. In late 60's and 70's. It's the character of Yardies, they don't take shit. Many passive Caribbean people benefited.

Yardies helped to neutralize the violence by fighting back.

That's the Yardie persona, whether for good or bad. Confidence.

Trinis are plenty talented. Economic success and creative culture, makes for spectacular outcomes.

They are a proud bunch, but they crave worldwide recognition of their talents.

WRT Yardies fighting back in the UK, whilst some of that may be true, how does that “personify the confidence of the region”, whatever that means?

And what has that to do with the topic?

Just an unexpected offshoot of the topic.

So you don't think Jamaicans are confident, in most ways?

No more confident than others.

You're right, that's a bit divisive, but not intended to be.

That said, can't confirm, but everyone has steelpan. Guyana, Bim, not so sure about T&T.

Yardies have?
