Barbados Underground Remembers Today In AFRICA


This was found in the diary of 1994 Pulitzer Photo Prize winner photojournalist Kevin Carter

One member of the BU household was doing some research on the weekend and came across this photo on a website. To say that it created a reality check and removed some mist from our eyes would be an understatement. Although the African continent is regarded as one of the richest in the world – gold, diamonds, oil and many natural resources abound, many of the countries there experience levels of poverty which many Barbadians cannot imagine.

Today, BU asks all visitors to find a way to assist those less fortunate than ourselves as we go about our daily business.

  1. It makes me wonder what the purpose of allowing the preceeding entry to be posted serves………so much to talk about and the obviously intellect challenged individual above has to grovel in the gutters to make a point.This site should have some standards as to what is posted and what isn’t. Correct me if I’m wrong….

  2. Get real! Africans regard us as slaves, less intelligent than them and only good to kiss their feet! Any concern for them is wasted effort! And, ‘No’, they DON’T see us as their brothers! Believe otherwise if you want to fool yourselves!

  3. Hi, BFP.

    We won’t be attacking you over the next 24 hours.

    Have a good night and day.

    Take care.


    (Your enemies.)

  4. Ooops, sorry David.

    That message was for BFP, but you can pass it on.

    Please let him know he can take down his moderation.

    We won’t be attacking you either over the next 24 hours.


    Take care.



  5. Bimbro – I visited Kenya last year to attend a funeral of a friend relative, (and also out of curiousity) I can assure you what you said is totally not true. A friend of mine also went earlier this year and she was totally amazed at the freiendliness of the people and the modernisation of the place in general. Don’t just look at the images you see on television etc.

  6. Thanks, ‘Undertaker’ but I live among it seems, millions of them here in London and I can assure you it is true! Perhaps the situation is different in this country or the west. However, I shant try to persuade you – I’ve given up trying to do that with Barbadians!

    Regards, anyway!
