You will get shot with an AK47 if you go to the main city. Stay only near resorts.

There is a high level of violence in Kingston and other areas of Jamaica. It is not to be taken lightly. Gun control is non existant and authorities do not go past the rhetoric of combatting crime. Jamaica has a very high murder rate even when compared to countries with a high murder rate.
Most houses have grills and metal bars, and expats prefer to live in gated communities with 24 hrt surveillance.

I don't know of anyone in Jamaica attacked because of skin color. Where did this come from?
