    Default Jamaican Admixtures

    These phenotypes are very common in Jamaica. The common misconception is that Jamaicans are purely SSA looking, but the fact is that Jamaica has had a long history of colorism. And it's a fact that Jamaica is the most European genotypically in all of the English Caribbean.


    Dougla Looking Jamaicans. Jamaicans refer to these people as "coolies" despite its derogatory meaning places elsewhere.

    Supercat




    His brother, Junior Cat.



    Lissa Hanna, former Miss World 1993. Now is a politician



    Rory, a Jamaican selector(DJ) from Stone Love.



    These Jamaicans are heavily European influenced.

    Michael Manley, former prime minister.






    Colin Powell



    Spragga Benz



    Sean Paul





    There are tons of random people I could post, but I need some help. I have tons of old family pictures that I need to scan.

    From most genetic studies I've seen, the average European admixture in Jamaicans is about equal with African Americans.

    Based off phenotype. What percentage of Jamaicans are admixed?

    He is for a Jamaican. He looks around 75% African, and 25% European.

    Ive heard about them. But theres not doubt that Spragga is more Euro admixed than the average Jamaican. His facial shape looks Nordid influenced.

    Not really dude, he's not even considered "Brown" in JA nor a mixed Jamaican. He's Black enuff to be called Black still.

    I think Alexander Bustamante would be one such example:
