Mayor Rob Ford must have gotten some Jamaicans angry to learn all these Jamaican swear words!
 
But a lot of Jamaicans are being jeered because of how they speak but “Patois” was developed for a very good reason!
 
It was developed back in Slavery times where the slaves would speak broken English so that the slave master couldn’t understand what they were saying.
 
For example: If they intended to burn down the plantation they could have the conversation right in front of the Slave Master and he wouldn’t know it!
 
By the way, did Rob Ford now that impersonating Jamaicans are called Jah-FAKE-cans!
 
Fun fact for Black History Month next month!
