    A lot of people here must realize what’s happening. The more harder life becomes with the cost of living etc the more easier it is to lash out. This plays out more so in the streets. Anger is easily aroused and respect is misunderstood.

    Our people have lost they way, (government is there to govern, rules to be implemented, laws to control the lawlessness , and set as guide lines, we can blame everything on the so call recession , but, we are not blaming ourselves.

    Knives , guns, vehicle accidents, drugs, some suicides, this is where we are at, all part of an adoption, want to be like the hood, the ghetto we have it and must deal with it.

    How different are we, as to 50 years ago, the overall black picture, are we better off , worst off , just about surviving, where are we. My take we have lost our culture, our heritage, we have our history, but nothing to take us to the future. blacks are still holding hands and signing ,we shall over come. over come what I don’t know.

    Alex a Caucasian said, the black man was slaved from arfica, leaving behind ,gold ,diamonds, millions of acres of land and taken to America, ending up in new York, in a box room , running off to work every day to make a life and the black man claims , he is blessed. Bishop Tutu said , the white man went to Africa, said to the black man lets pray, when they open they eyes , the white had the land ,the black man had the bible. that’s where we are at.

    We need to bring building industrial trades especially for the young men to be manually active. Many secondary school leavers don’t want to and many doesn’t have the ability to continue academically anyway. I am talking about electricians, carpenters, butchers, bakers, plumbers, autobody repairs. Everyone doesn’t have to go to college and guarantee a debt to the bank for the rest of your life.
    You got school teachers, who don’t want to teach. We’ve got grown people who can’t write or read. You got strange diseases—ah but there’s no cure. You got many doctors who cares not for the poor. So now we’ve reached the highway of gang violence and bloodshed on the streets. We should not be surprise. The time is up, this is no reality show. We must wake up and restore real love for our children….a Deeper Soul–Caribbean

    What would be a master piece if the government would, start a school offering apprenticeship, to all trades, the draw back, we wouldn’t be able to offer direct employment ,we wouldn’t have the amount of businesses to accommodate the results, the same still can be tried with limits.
