The youth need positive role models

Pastors at the Abundant Life Assembly are calling for positive role models to assist the country’s young people.

Commenting on the level of criminal activity involving the youth in recent times, pastors Kevin Hunte and Michael Holford made it clear that it was not all of doom and gloom for the island’s young people.

However they are adamant that all the youth need are positive influences in their lives.

    All kids hear from the adults is the black history, but they offer nothing towards the future. This rubbish always come from people who has nothing to offer, about role models ,why is it the young black people are the only ones who need role models.

    Stop blaming the young people , they didn’t ask to be brought into this world, its the dead beat fathers who impregnate as many women as they can, who need to be found, brought to justice and made to pay up.

    These pastor ,how could you all not see, there isn’t much difference between certain adults and the young people , they show the same aggression, the same attitude, they are into drugs, and criminal acts, they trousers waists down to they knees.
    We need in Barbados , businesses to employ and engage our young people , we need a government who cares about our people , bajans are being treated like second class citizens, we are paying for a failure group of so call politicians.

    Bajans are on the verge of loosing ,our way of life ,this we must not allow to happen. 50 years ago in the USA , black people held hands and sang we will overcome some day, 50 years later they are back at the same cross roads. still waiting to overcome, what I don’t know.

    ‘Role model” is just a cliche’ that is being over used as much as ‘I love you’ . These church persons just have ‘dreams’ and not GOALS. They enjoy most of all passing the collection plate.
    Try paying some TAXES.

    why lift a mere man up to be a role model and later in life he fails, do you understand how mankind emulates? he takes the good with the bad.
    follow in Jesus’ footsteps, live and preach Him that’s it, no more no less
    Perfect role model, wouldn’t you agree?

    A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. From Marcus Garvey right through to Nelson Mandela underlined this integral black historical manifestation. We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, for though others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is our only ruler; sovereign.
    Some of us seem to accept the fatalist position, the fatalist attitude, that Jah accorded to us a certain position and condition, and therefore there is no need trying to be otherwise. The moment you accept such an attitude, the moment you accept such an opinion, the moment you harbor such an idea, you hurl an insult at the great God who created you, because you question Him for His love, you question Him for His mercy.
    Black history is about self-respect, who thinks this is rubbish is either disrespecting himself or is an outright racist.
    There is a correlation between poor economic performance in a country and an increase in crime, and policymakers should focus more on economic growth strategies. So this thing about focusing on the society and not the economy is nonsense.
