Mr. McFadden said at his opening that Jamaicans tend to vote by personality of the candidate; implying that the issues are not important to them. Each Jamaican caller spoke to an important issue. I am not Jamaican, but I find, at least the ones who live in the NY area, are astute about the issues here and and in their homeland.

Jamaica is an extremely homophobic country. That's not going to change anytime soon..
