Usain Bolt talks classism

Usain Bolt talks classism

During his interview on Profile Usain Bolt spoke about the level of classicism he experienced.

We can easily believe that remember how Sean Paul’s wife Jodi Henriques caused quite a stir when she labeled the Jamaican world athletic star a neighbor from hell.

People were so outraged that they took to social media with their comments.

Well viewers got a taste of some of the other things Usain Bolt faced as he shared how he was treated when he just went to live uptown in an upscale St Andrew apartment.

“Especially when I started out. It was more shocking than anything else. That was how I ended up buying my house. I was living in a complex and I had issues with a few of the lighter-skinned people. I used to live near a lawyer and when I moved in, he said to me ‘be careful, they don’t like to see young people strive,’.”

“When it started happening to me, I had to rush and build my house. A lot of them, because dem go school and work years and years fi reach, and me jus come up and because of sports mi get everything, dem nuh happy.”

Well the good thing about it is that Bolt told Boyne that well uptowners showed him bad mind the ghetto and ordinary Jamaicans embraced him and were happy for him.
