African where? Shes more Asian than anything. If she looked like Shabba Ranks like most Jamaican women, yall mfer's wouldn't eve be going this hard. Africans too. Stay claiming people that look nothing like them. Don't act like this isn't true. I didn't form this opinion out of thin air.
She's mixed race, like a lot of Jamaicans. Jamaica isn't only inhabited by black people. She visually looks Asian (compliments of her father, who is ALSO mixed), but it doesn't take from the fact that she's Jamaican born && raised, from Jamaican parents. Our motto is "Out of Many, One People." Well, enough of my ranting. Congrats to you, Tess. You did our country proud.
@ Around the World. My point obviously didn't register with you. I never said she wasn't Jamaican. Jamaican is her nationality and Asian is her ethnicity. If she looked like a typical Jamaican, like most of African descent, yall wouldn't be gunning so hard for her.
So W T F is your point? Tessanne is a Jamaican who won on an American show. Why would they not rep. hard? And btw Asians here in the states voted for her too just like they did Obama, on the quiet. Jamaicans go hard for any of their citizens doing well. From Bolt to Damain Marley to Shelly Anne Price. So s t f u. @maybeme
Ugh y'all late. She's been well known in Island music. She's done songs with Kymani Marley. My favorite one is "The Conversation." And she is of mixed raced but was born in Jamaica. She also has a song called "Hideaway" that is very nice.
LMAO maybeme obviously knows nothing about Caribbean history and/or culture to be making such a stupid remark that she can't be Jamaican because she looks Asian. My ancestors came to the Caribbean from India over 150 years ago, that does not make me Indian! I am born and raised in the Caribbean, just like her. GTFO wit yuh ignorant self
What about Usain Bolt @ Maybeme? Is he what you'll call a "typical jamaican?" Then what would you say about Jamaicans gunning for him? like all Caribbean people trying to make it "out there" we will always support our own, regardless of ethnicity. Hmmm I suppose that's why Trinbagonians were rooting for Anya Ayoung Chee when she won Project Runway 2 seasons ago.
She start looseing her weight in 2011 she got 2 number one songs in jamaica about 5 years ago her sister Tammi Chin got a four million dollar deal with universial record company about ten years ago and Tammi is married to jamaica sing J singer call wayne marshall the 2 sisters and there brother were born in kingston jamaica,,,, Usain bolt, Sean Paul,shaggy Jimmy cliff, Bob Marley,Collin Powel, Patrick ewing are all jamaicans born,, Jamaica is the third largest carribean country in the carribbean with Three point Five millions People living there from all different races and colour,,, SO all you non education dumb brains who say that she is not jamaican Please go on google and goole about her life before you dumb brains hater start comment,,, Jamaicans stand up and stand out loud and clear today in music and on the track and field in the world olympics.
Why you people care? She is Jamaican bottom line... All over the Caribbean have mix people, Asians, White, just like the USA.. I think some of you guys don't want to accept her being Jamaican, and that is your own problem. And this is why people around the world hate Americans because of these ignorant comments.What's even sadder, most people that talk shit like this are African-American...very sad.
Very sad what? That blacks try to hold on to everything that's not black? Yep very sad indeed. Thirsty blacks will ride for and claim someone that's .0000001% and force them into being black. THATS sad. Caribbean people need to quit acting like theyre different all because yall are some Africans that got dumped on an island.
And for all you jealoua haters,,, Just to let you all now that Tessan was sponcer by 2 of jamaica biggest grammy winners reggae artists SHAGGY and icon/doctaret star JIMMY CLIFF they both Pay for her trip to america and hotel for her and her family to stay and Plus she was Jimmy cliff back up singer for many years and that is in google as a Proof and fact.
this broad has no african mix in her. her mom is white and father is asian, don't believe what the race mixing lovers say. only black she has in her is her mixed husband who have a part of black in him, that's going in her.
MTO is ridiculous! The girl cant even get just a congrats post and live in hew new found fame without yall diggin up dirt they had put in their PAST. Lurking on myspaces and instagrams always trying to expose people. Yall all are L A M E S
So many ignorant twats on this site!!!...We rep for her because she is Jamaican and we are Jamaican what the hell is your point???..Unlike other nations who tear down eachother, We r a Nation who love and support all our people..What the hell is a typical Jamaican anyway?? Our motto is "Out of Many One People" what does that sound like to u idiots?? She is of mixed heritage not becuase her physical features suggest otherwise..We support all our people who do well whether they are African or mixed and alot of our nations people are of mixed heritage...GET EDUCATED OR STFU PERIOD!!!!!!
i am jamican and i get that i look hispanic jamaicans dont have a look so shut the fuck up!!!! u guys sound ridiculous... its like you know how jamaicans look more than i do and i fucking born and grow up there. learn the jamaican caribbean history before u speak utter rubbish!!
You are an illiterate clown...They say ignorance is bliss so you must be in paradise...So if you are of mixed race, why do you need claim one sid?...Why the hell does her race matter when she is a born and bred Jamaican?? We should not support her because of your idiotic belief that only black people are "real" Jamaicans...This is why the world is as phucked up as it is...Plz do the planet a favour and die!! U want attn u got it!!! Now disappear!! @maybeme
No. Im truthful as f.uck. If yall wanna act like theres no truth to what im saying continue being blind. Im sure everyone can agree that an Indian person has a certain look (certain features) Asians have a certain look (certain features) even white people have a 'typical look' but blacks are the only ones that don't that seem to think they don't have a specific look. Black and proud but cant even admit that blacks look African. This has nothing to do with her being Jamaican but everything to do with that 'shes African and' wtf else b/ullshit.
No. When you are mixed race you claim MIXED RACE, biracial whatever. Not black. Anyone with eyes can see this woman is not black. By claiming black you are claiming one side. You've contradicted yourself.
calm the fuck down no one said she was black she is neither black nor white nor asian she is mixed with all that u jack ass!!!!... its like u cant comprehend that,, can u read and understand the shit that u read????
NO ONE IS CLAIMING HER TO BE COMPLETELY BLACK!!!! SHE IS JAMAICAN N WE ARE ALL JAMAICAN END OF STORY!!...Your point is still very much invalid!!! She has black, white and asian blood is that a problem to any one in Jamaica?? Hell no why the hell does it affect you?? Black people embrace anyone with one ounce of black in them because we are loving people..At the end of the day we are all ONE PEOPLE, racial divide needs to stop somewhere
@maybeme stop trolling this post, you sound like a racist wanna-be Jamaican. Are you suggesting that the only true Jamaicans are those that have pure African ancestry or that they are in fact African and not Jamaican, WTF is your point and why do you care so much that she's Jamaican with Asian roots? :S :S :S
Why are we paying attention to that troll. Tessanne could be fully Chinese, White or Indian we'll still be representing. Because as we've said She Is JAMAICAN.Idk why people are always up in arms about supporting someone if they are "supposedly outside of our race". You'll stay ignorant for rest of your life. As for "Is she Jamaican really?" you'll stay behind too because of your preconceived misconceived notions. Jamaica is one of the most diverse places in the World -and that's the end of that.
i realize im dealing with an illiterate motherfucker... her head is too hard to crack. not wasting no more time on this irrelevant person. congrats to my girl tessanne you have made our nation proud. PROUD JAMAICAN!!!!!!
lmao @maybeme you sound madddd stupid...Indians and other Asians were actually indigenous ppl of Jamaica, as well as white ppl and african ppl. None of the women in my family look like shabba ranks or the"typical african" you're trying to portay....anyway, as us Jamaicans would say in our "fake language".. guh suck yu mother !
lmao she is looking real stupid ... the same slaves from africa were shipped to the 13 colonies to work on plantations!!! so i guess we can call americans a bunch of african that got shipped on boat and got left on the 13 colonies too... DUMB ASS MOFO
i think the problem is that Jamaica unlike the united states does not have a problem with racism. Classism yes but not racism. You're either Jamaican or not, unlike in the states where you are identified by your ethnicity, african american etc
African Americans don't like foreign blacks because they are jealous of them, African Americans feel foreign blacks are taking their jobs and the foreign black women are taking their men (which is true) I have heard African Americans speak about this. African Americans are also mad at the foreign blacks because they feel the foreign blacks are viewed in a better light by white Americans than they are. It is a fact that most blacks who go to college and are enrolled in college are foreign blacks not African Americans. The African Americans are viewed by white Americans as LAZY and unproductive, who abuse the free welfare government programs in the USA. American whites view foreign blacks as more productive, hard working and educated than the Africans Americans, this is were all this hate of foreign blacks is coming from.
African Americans make fun of Jamaicans and other foreign blacks all the time on TV and in movies, but Al Shapton and other African Americans need the help of Jamaicans and other foreign blacks to help when the African Americans want to race riot in American against whites and other races of people in the USA because they feel some white people or another race in the USA is oppressing them or causing them problems, you Jamaicans and other foreign blacks are fools if you join up and follow those dumb azz African Americans against any race of people here in the USA, when the African Americans are the ones in the USA who is always talking sh*t about you and putting you down, it is not the other race of people or whites in the USA you have to be afraid of, it is the African Americans who are always out to get you, they only want to be your friend when they need you to help them fight their war they are always fighting with whites in the USA, you need to stay away from those LAZY mother f,u,c,k,ers and segregate yourself's, because they secretly don't like you and mean you no good!
You all know maybeme is 100% truth on this post!!...Most Jamaican women look like LADY SAW in the face and are darkskinned with their harsh masculinized feautures!!....BLACKS STAY claiming and praising people that look nothing like the majority of themselves and they wonder why they get treated the way they do and why they are always on the bottom in life!!!...
Those ugly bald headed big black azz African American women on here are just jealous they can' t look as good as alot of these foreign black women that can take their man on any or every given Sunday, lol
If anyone knows Jamaica and the Caribbean, they will know that everyone is mixed to some degree. You can be very dark, yet have all kinds of heritage. Especially in places like JA, Trinidad, Guyana where the people are made up from African, Indian Amerindian, East Indian, Chinese, and virtually every racial cocktail on the planet. The motto of these countries are..one people out of many (jamaica) One people one nation one destiny (Guyana)
These African American B,U,M ugly black bladed head b.i.t.c.h.e.s have the green eyed monster of envy against foreign black woman, because African American men are always going to these foreign countries looking to date and marry foreign women. African American men are not out here looking for African American women to date or marry, and these b.i.t.c.h.e.s know that and they are MAD
There is going to be a major race war in the near future in the USA. The African Americans are going to get into a race war with another race of people. I know who those people are but I will leave it as a surprise for the dumb azz African Americans, and when this race war breaks out between the African Americans and the other race of people, you foreign blacks remember African Americans are not your friend and don't like you, so when they run to you for help (and they will, like they do now) kick them in their black azzes, and segregate yourself from them, don't get mixed up in their crazy mess!
@maybeme ....You do not have a photo so we cannot see how broken down your tore-up ass is...But let me tell you something Bitch...I wont even go there with about how ugly you think Jamaicans are..because you just proved to use what a DUMB ASS you are... Did you even type that shit yourself? You are all over this shit, seem you like to hang on to coat tails even if all you get is dragged thru the mud...Bitch go lie down somewhere so something can run over your ass. Do you even know where you are from Bitch? Why are you so mad did R Kelly piss on you too...Go bathe
@Paris Hilton I totally agree with your comments especially the Part where you said these african american women go to foreign country and married men and bring them back to america,,,, Any way I am a very Proud Jamaican who lives here in america with my family and I love all jamaicans that live here in america or any where in the world and Plus we are doing it real loud and Proud and big,,, Because in music we are big with People like Tessan chin,Sean Paul, shaggy and Jimmy cliff and the world biggest reggae icon bob marley and the world fastest man alive usain bolt,,, SO any Puzzy Hole who do not like us jamaica can go SUCK OUT THERE MOTHER BLEEDING PUZZY VIGINA HOLE.
Umm, guys, first world people don't know how to view human beings without putting them into racial categories. Itâ€™s how they were trained to view the world. They canâ€™t understand that nationalism is real. They canâ€™t grasp that in Jamaica we view everybody as ONE people and that we love each other because we all share the same culture and not because of the colour of our skins. Itâ€™s different for them. African-American, Chinese-Indo-Asian-American; itâ€™s not her fault. All they know about us is stereotype. They say that majority of Jamaicans look so and so, as if any of them have ever set foot on our beautiful isle. Itâ€™s pathetic really. So letâ€™s just leave poor @maybeme and the â€˜holier than thouâ€™ first world racists alone. Let her wallow in her ignorance. Hopefully, she chokes on it and dies. Oh yeah, and CONGRATS TESSANNE CHIN! YOU ARE A STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED JAMAICAN WOMAN AND YOU MADE US PROUD, AS USUAL.
@Maybeme you're 100% right, but arguing with a Jamaican over the folly in worshipping people who don't look nothing like them is futile. Jamaicans are the most color struck buffoons on the face of the planet. They sweat and worship any and everyone who doesn't look black, thus the popularity of acts like skin bleaching thats rampant on the island. 88% of the inhabitants of Jamaica look nothing like tessane chin; but more like a Grace Jones, Sheryl Lee Ralph or even a woman like Patra, all of which Jamaicans as a whole would never want to represent them beauty wise. Tessane "Chin" it's obviously East Asian in ethnicity and Jamaican nationality wise, but i guarantee you that if she ever becomes huge in America she will distance herself more and more from her Jamaican roots like she did last night in a subtle way when she criticized Jamaican roads. The Jamaican motto "out of many one people" doesn't speak in regards to racial make up but more about the comradery that is shared amongst the populous, so you morons need to brush up on your history so you can stop spewing nonsense online. @The moron who said Jamaica has over 3 million people, try again.... Jamaica population is at 2.7 million, not even bigger than the borough of Brooklyn #Fact
@TheTruthDecoded says â€˜arguing with a Jamaican over the folly in worshipping people who don't look nothing like them is futileâ€™. How exactly do you think Jamaicans look? Do you know how dumb you sound generalizing an entire (very diverse) population like that? Thatâ€™s like saying arguing with an American over the folly in worshipping people who don't look nothing like them (exotic girls) is futile. What exactly does an American look like ethnically? SMH
Tessanne is Jamaican! For those who do not know, Jamaican people comprise many races! So donâ€™t be surprised to see someone of Chinese, Indian, Filipino, or even Caucasian descent speaking the Jamaican dialect â€“ full blown patois at thatâ€¦.and many of these same persons were BORN AND RAISED IN JAMAICA ALL THEIR LIVES. I am a black Jamaican, and I have cousins (first cousins to that) who look 100% Chinese as well!
Jamaicans are as ignorant and naive as they come, and they will argue an inaccurate and logical devoid point to the grown. I'm not gonna debate with you, I'm just gonna pull up facts about your homeland that you claim to know so much about and show you just how "diverse" it really is lol. Google and Wikipedia is kryptonite to fools like you who try to pass your opinions off as facts...
According to the 2001 census, the majority of Jamaica's population is of African descent (referring to those who identify as having origins mainly in Africa). The most common ethnic groups among all Africans taken to Jamaica were the Akan (known as the "Coromantee") from present-day Ghana and the Igbo from present-day Nigeria.
Multiracial Jamaicans form the second largest racial group, many of whom also have Irish ancestry. Most mixed-race people on the island self-report simply as "Jamaican".
The make up is 76.3% African descent, 15.1% Afro-European, 3.4% East Indian and Afro-East Indian, 3.2% Caucasian, 1.2% Chinese and 0.8% Other.
Jamaicans of African descent form 76.3% of the population and are the majority. Indian form 3.4% Chinese ancestry form 1.2%, and other ethnic groups make 0.8%. the next largest racial group after multiracial Jamaicans. Lebanese, Syrian, English, Scottish, Irish, and German Jamaicans make up a smaller racial minority but are still influential both socially and economically.
In recent years, immigration has increased, coming mainly from China, Haiti, Cuba, Colombia, and Latin American countries; 20,000 Latin Americans reside in Jamaica. About 7,000 Americans also reside in Jamaica, as well as many first-generation American, British and Canadians of Jamaican descent.
In case you missed it people who resemble miss tessane chin make up 0.8% of the population... Diverse indeed lol...

@ paris-hilton maybeme, BronzeReign, cherrygarcia78, rahnyc4 all five of you ladies are a bunch of clowns. It doesnâ€™t matter what she is, if she was cut she would still bleed the same color as everyone on here. If she took a dump it would still come out the same way as everyone elseâ€™s. @maybeme what are you talking about black people claim people who donâ€™t look like them? Is she not a human? And what does a typical Jamaican look like? What does a typical person from the states look like? It kills me when people say that kind of stuff. This is ignorant and this is why the world is full of so much hate because of idiots like you all. @cherrygarcia78 its cool to express you opinion but you might want to add in there that technically everyone from the top of Canada down to the bottom of Argentina is American so yeaâ€¦ Ignorance is so bliss smh.
@maybeme...Jamaica is a country of peoples of various racial backgrounds. 'Jamaican' is not a race. Its a nationality. So the 'Jamaicans' who are cheering for her, includes blacks, caucasians,AND Jamaicans of Asian extract. Which is what Tessanne is. Whatever her ethnicity, the FACT is, she is Jamaican, born, bred, and lives here. SMH @ the ignorance.
So many dunce posting here. Unbelievable. Have some of you been anywhere but down your block to the liquour store? Sad. Jamaica is a country of peoples of various racial backgrounds. 'Jamaican' is not a race. Its a nationality. So the 'Jamaicans' who are cheering for her, includes blacks, caucasians,AND Jamaicans of Asian extract. Which is what Tessanne is. Whatever her ethnicity, the FACT is, she is Jamaican, born, bred, and lives here. SMH @ the ignorance.
So we are reppin for her the same way we rep for Buju Banton, Sean Paul, Bob Marley, Junior Gong, Beenie Man, ...the long list goes on. Reading is so fundamental.
Maybeme, tell ur flat ass white spotty bitches to stop injecting things in their lips to have lips like black women, tell them to stop putting jello in their flat ass to look like as sexy as the black woman. I know u couldnt be a black man , if u r , u deserve to be tide up by a black community and be beaten to death. Cant diss my black women despite where they live on the earth. She could even live in secluded tribe, you r not allowed to diss u hear pussy. U must be a white fagat To say things like that. U remember that ur race of people r from the caves of Europe who use to fuck and eat each other before u made friends with the african race. Black people taught u how to cook and to have a bath before u turn around and betray them. Continue with ur evil I have alot more to say.
Tessanne I wish u have a progressive career and thank you for always bigging up the Jamaica land we love. Proud to be a Jamaican serving in the US military taking care of my Jamaican family here and abroad. Protecting the boarders of the United States and allies by being a citizen of the world.
