Jamaican Owner of Vacation Rental Company Says No More Black American Guests

The Jamaican owner of the Rustic Mountain Living rental company shocked social media by saying she wouldn’t allow any more short-term stays. The reason? She’s fed up with the alleged misbehavior of Black American guests.

In a TikTok video, “The Barefoot Mountain Lady,” said she doesn’t believe all Black Americans are ill-mannered, but most of the ones she hosted were entitled, unappreciative and generally disrespectful in her presence.

She said she only ever had two mannerly Black American guests.

The most eyebrow-raising statement was toward the end. The owner claimed Black Americans are spoiled and expect the same “free sh*t” in Jamaica they supposedly get at home.

In the video, the woman does errands on her grounds, wades in the sea, and seems completely unbothered.

Unsurprisingly, the woman’s announcement sparked a firestorm of criticism.

People accused her of perpetuating dangerous, offensive stereotypes about Black Americans.

Others questioned the wisdom of making such a declaration on a public platform seemingly without a thought for the possible consequences and wondered how she can work in the hospitality industry and be so inhospitable.

On Twitter, one user said the owner was parroting white supremacist talking points about Black Americans. But to them, it was more comical than offensive.

Some asked for clarification on the freebies point. “I’d like to receive my free things, please!” wrote one woman. “Is there a newsletter?”

After one potential guest criticized the negative energy, The Barefoot Mountain Lady said, “You don’t have to come here.”

Another user gave the owner advice in the form of a Jamaican proverb: “Anno everything good fi eat, good fi talk,” meaning “some things are better left unsaid.”

The Barefoot Island Lady literally laughed at the blowback in yet a third video.

“I’m not sorry,” she said. “You want to unfollow me? Block me? I don’t care.”

You seem so thrilled to be able to post this, OP.

I suspect the OP has two different points she can bounce between, thinking somehow that will prove her right no matter what.

But to her it's really the same point, isn't it, bitch?

Poor R2 and R3.

Truth hurts.

OP is a white racist, using a black person to look less racist "See, it's a black person saying the same racist shit I say!"

Pretty dumb for this person to say such stupid things since there are also negative stereotypes associated with Jamaicans

I've been in the hospitality industry for decades and the shit-for-brains that posted this clearly doesn't understand that you can say this about every color and type a person would ever care to think of.

What I love about the video is that this island woman DGAF, she is shitting on American tourists while planting her flowers and taking a dip in the sea, smiling while at it.

What a life

Black twitter saying she's a white supremacist.

She says that America has spoiled blacks.

The comments are hilarious with all the black TikTokers agreeing with her. This woman just doesn’t give a shit.

Black Twitter.

Black TikTok.

Is there a black facebook, too?

by Anonymousreply 17May 26, 2023 11:12 AM

Many Black Americans label it #BlackTiktok #BlackTwitter. Hell, it’s even #BlackKpopStan. They segregate themselves.

We think she’s tremendous!

This OP usually treats the OP like her news feed as she copies and pastes long bits on her favorite topics.

But here she gets her digs in, and her only response, of course, afterwards is:

[quote]Poor [R2] and [R3]. Truth hurts.

A low cunt, obviously.

Truth hurts, OP?

Tell us what that truth is, racist hypocrite crying over Tina Turner in other threads.

[quote] On Twitter, one user said the owner was parroting white supremacist talking points about Black Americans.

This attitude demonstrates American insularity. The average American (of any race) expects people from all over the world to understand/care/cater to their worldviews. They need to open their eyes and realize the rest of the world is not beholden to American perspectives. And really, these far left-wingers on twitters are dumb. They are against people denying the experiences of people of color, unless those "people of color" don't align with their exact worldview. It's bullshit.

Who would want to visit that homophobic country anyway?

Trash is trash no matter what the wrapper.

But don't be expecting any decent tips from certain demographics in Jamaica, Houston, Paris or Timbuktu.

That's a near universal.
