Jamaica more than music and athletes

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I am an American and I truly feel Miss Universe Jamaica was the most beautiful contestant, but she could have been more in-depth with her response to the question: 'What has Jamaica contributed to the world?'. Jamaica has contributed more than Bob Marley and Usain Bolt.

I don't think people actually realise how people all over the world have embraced this tiny little island where the majority of the people have little but are full of pride. I was amazed while searching YouTube at the love of the Jamaican culture in places like Japan, China, Russia, Saudi, Ukraine and places that I can't even pronounce.

Jamaica has contributed culture, music, cuisine, dance, dancehall, fashion, great athletes, love and pride all over this world.

If you can show me a culture that has more love and respect than that of Jamaica, I will personally jump off a bridge.
