We did so much liming, eating, drinking, sharing, helping, laughing and ole talking. They remain some of the best examples of young Caribbean and West Indian men I have ever encountered beyond my brother, cousins and my few longtime friends.So when I read some of those Caribbean man lists, sure, they seem a bit cheesy and overly simplistic in some ways, but I cannot say they don’t ever somewhat describe some of the men I know and have grown to love.
