    As James Almighty said “no picture”. Makes you look incompetent as a news source. Editor’s day off?? Hope she’s found safe and sound…albeit a picture could speed up that process.

    I keep asking why there are never any pictures of these missing persons, now how am I to contact the Police about seeing her if I don’t know what she looks like. Or is his just a formality of reporting missing people

    Just imagine the disgraceful and insulting manner in which the missing black woman was described by a black media person person from a black island :

    { Nicola is 161 centimetres tall, of dark complexion, stoutly built and full breasted. She has a round head, bulging eyes, big nose and thick lips. Both her ears are pierced once. Nicola has a tattoo of a lion’s head on her upper left arm and a tattoo of a map of Barbados on her left forearm. She has knock knees and is slightly slouched }

    That’s the way ” runaway slaves ” were describe during the slavery years in Barbados and the way Bajans were taught by the British to describe their own bajan peolple.

    A white missing person would have been describe in a more respectful manner ( no matter if they had a round head, bulging eyes, big nose and thick lips ). And it’s a total shame when black people describe one another in that type of fashion . . . . especially worse when a member of the black Barbados news media and the ROYAL Barbados Police Dept. continue to described black Barbadians in the way the British describe their ( Bajan ) fore parents years ago.

    wow very insulting description, I would say racism and deplorable behavior comes from our own people. I remember some years ago some lady was found in the careenage, and her description was like. She is dark skin and have buck teeth. What is wrong with the Barbados behavior, its like disrespect is the core of their lives. The police could have given the woman a better mental outlook. It paint a very bad picture of her. She talks very loud, with a Barbadian accent. Only when you are dead do you hear, how you should respect the dead, why cant we respect the living. The description open the doors for bullying and mocking. very sad behavior of some bajan people. The culture is getting worse, even the people that should know better, like older church people, love and enjoy putting people down. At some churches some members would just walk up to you, and be fixing your sleeves or fixing your dress, cant you ask the person first what you are doing, or ask the person to fix their clothes? dont just walk up to someone and start fixing their dress. Some bajans have no clue about being respectful of the other person.

    Ossie Moore , you hit the nail on the head. I thought the same thing when I read it. Seriously??? Where is her photo?

  11. sunshinecanada May 3, 2017 at 12:05 pm

    thanks Ossie Moore, the time they took to talk the bull, they could of posted a photo, hope she’s safe

  12. nanci May 3, 2017 at 12:29 pm

    the police that wrote this description dont have an respect for the woman, this is a terrible mental picture they painted of the woman. Didnt the family members have a picture of her? they should teach the police to respect the public both mentally and psychically, this way they would paint a more compassionate picture of the woman. First impressions speak volume.

    Even if that description was provided by family members or friends it could have been modified by the professional members of the media and Police Dept. I also have some Law Enforcement PR experience ( Public Relation )and here are my description modifications :

    (1) dark skin – BLACK FEMALE

    (2) stoutly built and full breasted – FEMALE OF MEDIUM SIZE


    (4) knock knees – SHE HAS A SLIGHT DEFICIENCY WHEN WALKING etc , etc


    It’s a damn shame people , how is the white man going to like you when you don’t even like you own self ?

  16. sunshinecanada May 3, 2017 at 3:43 pm

    thats white my white grandmother said, and the queen is my 17th cousin.

  17. sunshinecanada May 3, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    thats what my white grandmother said,

    A fascinating series of comments.
    It simply demonstrates how effective the self loathing instilled in us by our white colonial masters has been.
    I suspect the author of that degrading discription of this young woman has no idea how disrespectful they have been to all dark skinned people, including their mother, sister, father, brother………….
    Well done folks for expressing your concern.
    I too hope this sister returns safely to her concerned family.

    Guys, get over the white and black mentality created to make us think one race is better than the next. Not knowing his strengh or what he sought to seek that complain alound calls him a freak but he has shown the world one race one manning. Thank you MJ because I know they are just another part of me. Long live The Double.

  21. Geoff Small May 3, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    The picture of alleged criminals are posted and that of a missing person is not. Help me understand the reasoning, please.

  22. Pam Taylor May 4, 2017 at 12:30 am

    Her mother is a little simple and not all together there. That is why they put it this way. This might be all she is able to give them.

  23. Latoya May 4, 2017 at 8:35 pm

    I am sure the press did not create that description. Possibly from my experience, her relatives described her just like that and the press did not edit it. Tells you how her family sees her! Probably make her feel less attractive by their words.
