    Well by now the majority of you should have already agreed with me about the Racial and Religious hypocrisy that exist in Barbados . . . . better known as ” Little England ” also better known as ” buhbaydus ” also better known as ” Bim “.

    I have not even seen a picture of Mr.Cedric B. Mc.Carthy but I do know his race. How do I know his race ? because in comparison to a few weeks ago when a picture of another family of a different race who had nothing was “splattered ” all over the media etc , etc , there was an out pour of ” wows – my God how could this happen – God is good – so sorry to hear that ‘ from the religious extremists , and Holy rollers . . . . a bunch of hypocrites.

    But now , it’s a different race and it’s been hours since this very unfortunate tragedy that took the life of a different race , so now there are no ” oh my God comments nor no ” so sad to hears this ” coming from FOLKS such as Dr.Paula Estwick or Heather Straker saying how drastic of a tragedy this was . . . .

      @Ossie Moore – well said. I have been saying this for some time. This is all part of the brain washing done on this people, who is still currently an OCCUPIED COLONIZED people and don’t even see it. They will feel for their oppressors pain more than their own pain. This is why we as a people have no power or purpose within the earth but to be entertainers and sports. All of them up in that tree, who got the roots firmly planted in the ground. And we can BLAME the church and education systems for all of that too.

    I am more than happy ,to read every ones comment I get the sense that slowly we people of colour, are awakening to the true reality of our situation, what I want to see is people coming to the understanding, that we the people have the Power to demand that the people we put in parliament are there to help us, & not just themselves (A generation which ignores its History has NO past & no future) my brothers & sisters, the only way out of our poverty is (1) instead of buying all the white man’s goods ,save some money Demand those politicians to help you( Hi Jennifer, happy to see a lady fighting for the RIGHT) out of here now !

      @Carlisle N – Not sure if you will see this bro. But time is running out. There is not much time left for the heathen to run the route. The weak will be made strong and the strong will be made WEAK.
