#jamieoliver @jamieoliver #jerk I'm just wondering do you know what #Jamaican #jerk actually is? It's not just a word you put before stuff to sell products. @levirootsmusic should do a masterclass. Your jerk Rice is not ok. This appropriation from Jamaica needs to stop.

The general white reaction to Jamie Oliver’s #JerkRice is why I don’t bother getting into conversation with white people about race anymore. How can a people tell you “you have disrespected us in this way” and your instant response is “I’m offended that you’re offended!”. Like???
As a fellow Jamaican, jerk rice does NOT, has NEVER and SHOULD NEVER exist. It's an insult to Jamaicans. We don't joke with our food! It has a deep rooted history and intertwines with our national pride and identity.
