Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back

President Obama and First Lady

The albatross clinging to the back of the Black race continues to remind Black people everywhere of the pain left by slavery. Yes the Black race has made strides since emancipation day but in a fragmented way. As a collective we are woefully short of where we need to be in order to leverage the talent of the Black race.

The rich culture lived by Africans before undertaking the arduous journey of the Middle Passage has been diminished through generations of slaving under a non-Black establishment. Those who understand the concept of culture i.e. the shared characteristics of a people would have witnessed the culture of the Black man subsumed by the more dominant of the colonial masters. Commonsense exposes the fact that the Black race compared to any other race experienced a physical and psychological abuse by another race never visited on any other race in the history of mankind.

The foregoing possibly explains why there is a latent discontent which haunts any discussion about race relations between Blacks and Whites 170 plus years after the emancipation of slaves in the West Indies. Despite it all, while the extreme among us may shout for retribution most will settle for reparation.

Earlier blogs on BU which discussed how the psyche of the Black man could remain bruise 100 years later should examine  this issue through the eyes of a White academic. A White Professor Andrew Manis of Macon State College scribed his perspective about When Are WE Going to Get Over It?. All along Blacks have been made to feel that any tension and distrust existing between Blacks and Whites is all the fault of the Blacks. In Manis’ article mention is made of the fear many White Americans have had to the election of the first Black president of the USA. He mentions how White children are socialized to react negatively to the Black presidency and many other hair raising observations.

Some would label BU as racist. We prefer to seek comfort in the knowledge that speaking about race not in whispered tones, may help to weave the racial harmony some of us yearn for through honest and open engagement of the issue.

  1. Now you say you not white but defending white and talking about generalisations.

    You and I know that not all pants get cut from the same cloth. For example as a pants, I black, you red and others white.

    All pants don’t got the same pockets either or even the same style. The point is, which one are you? Why you defending the white pants and yours red?

    “There was a guy that went to school with ROK who was involved in a motor cycle accident and refused emergency medical attention because the only medics available at the time were black. The idiot lost his arm.”

    I only know one white boy that went to school with me that lost an arm. At least I can’t think of anyone else but him; Basil Clarke from St. John. I think he passed on now but I never really considered him racists from his activities; but that is how it goes.

    His father used to run the supermarket in four roads and I think the gas station too. Can’t swear about the gas station.

    I never knew that is why he lost his arm if it was him, but with all his freckles, I never really considered him among the whites. More red than white. He had turned to beach life on the circuit. He had a younger brother that looked more white than him and had real white man hair. Basil was a freckled faced curly haired redhead.

    I think there is an older brother as well that was a redhead like Basil. That is the image coming back at me. The younger brother was the same age as I. Have not seen him since schooldays. Wow! 30 and some years. He was probably the coolest of the lot. Basil was just “mad” when he got ready.

    Can’t tell you about any sisters though.

  3. ROKie,
    you leff school only 30 years now! Man u is a spring chicken! I musse ole enuff to be u fadder! U better get A DNA test hear. I chillin, now RoKie. LOL

  4. @ ROK

    Yeah ROKie, upon reflection (and reading over your comment) I would totally agree with you. If someone is breaking the law (and it is proven so) then by all means all that they have gained/obtained by that illegal activity should be confiscated.

    I know you & CH would be very busy at this time (with the intervening). Give them a “run for their money”!. Pun intended. I never understood why the ruling (re expenses etc) went against you guys. No harm in trying again, is there?
    Gotta hand it to those of you who take the fight to these money grabing monpolies though. Keep up the good work.

  5. @ ROK
    Just one question, though. Would this confiscation also apply to corrupt politicians as well?

    If so, then I hate to say that we may yet see quite a bit of surprised politicians around here. But 1st, we need ITAL.

    When you think ITAL will see the light of day, though? Ever?

    Sorry, if I went off-thread a bit there.

  6. Robin Hood

    You enjoy talin’ to “ROKie”. Cool. Frankly I glad, cuase yah really too ol’ tah be talkin’ tah me…!

  7. @BAFBFP

    Perhaps with “age” comes wisdom?? To be truthful I don’t really “talk to” I prefer to think that I “talk/speak WITH”.

    There is a noticeable difference between the two. :>)

  8. ITAL has to be ready before the next election. If the current GoB does not legislate it before that time, I will be campaigning against them.

    The only thing that would temper an outright call for them not to be re-elected is if Mia Mottley goes into the election as the BLP leader.

  9. @Adrian Hinds // September 4, 2009 at 11:42 AM
    I have no doubt we will see some effort at ITAL if it comes even just 2 days before the next election!

    Of course, that would be after the feeding frenzy at the trough of the public purse! LOL

  10. Question to you ‘inverted’ Racist ‘blacks’, what about the thousands of blacks, who have climbed the socio/economic ladder, are well educated, drive nice cars, live in lovely homes, etc, etc, who, as far as I know, don’t entertain their ‘maids’ or gardeners, at their posh dinning tables, but actually appear snobbish to these other ‘poor’ blacks. What do you call this?

    Also, why is it, as I have heard said many times by blacks, that they would prefer any day, to work for a white man, rather than one of their own blacks.

    Is it the cultural upbringing that encourages this type of mentality, or is it something else?

    Suppose you inverted racists will blame the white man, ‘again’ rather than face the reality of truth!

  11. @ Simple Enough

    These upity Black people that you refer to, the same ones that no one wants to work for… well they no longer be Black, they be academics now, trained minds, pseudo-White ..!

  12. @Simple Enough

    1. Slavery is a fact of history; it happened.
    2. It is a crime against humanity perpetrated by whites on blacks.
    3. Nobody should condone crime and there can be no excuse for crime.

    1. Any person who defends slavery defends a most heinous crime.
    2. Any person who defends a heinous crime is a risk to national peace and security.
    3. According to the laws of Barbados, any person who is a risk to national peace and security invokes the emergency powers act and should be secured at Dodds Prison at the pleasure of the Crown.


  13. ROK there you go on again. If you were reaIIy so vexed about it you might try to address your rage towards sIavery happening today in your very own ancestraI home, dearIy beIoved West Africa. The past is the past. What about what happening TODAY? Bored I’m staying MiserabIe, BIM.

  14. @victor
    Why don’t you try to address racism and the effects of racism today. You don’t know anything about me, but I have done my bit for Barbados to ensure that it does not happen here.

    I sat on the trafficking in persons committee as well as the child labour committee. When you turn on your TV and hear giggert and boo on child labour, abuse, etc. that was the result of being part of this effort.

    Now while we addressing matter of slavery in its different forms today, there is still the outstanding matter of the damage that slavery has done and is still doing. One is not exclusive to the other.

    Wriggle as you may, it will be hard for you to make me lose my focus. For every sore you have or get, I have a piece of plaster for you. I will help you get patched up.

  15. Senator Bilbo’s Warning:-

    “If our buildings, our highways, and our railroads should be wrecked, we could rebuild them. If our cities should be destroyed, out of the very ruins we could erect newer and greater ones. Even if our armed might should be crushed, we could rear sons who would redeem our power. But if the blood of our White race should become corrupted and mingled with the blood of Africa, then the present greatness of the United States of America would be destroyed and all hope for civilization would be as impossible for a Negroid America as would be redemption and restoration of the Whiteman’s blood which had been mixed with that of the Negro.” (Senator Theodore G. Bilbo, of Mississippi in 1947)

  16. @ Simple Enough in the above you made the statement “inverted racists” to describe a black skin person displaying racists behavior. I was not aware that only one type of race are labeled as racists! That statement shows your thinking, Your MO……

    To solve any confusion can you please explain the difference between an “inverted racists” and a racists?


    Sociologists and social theorists agree that cleverly hidden within hundreds of generally accepted facts deemed as (TRUTH) is the ballast of one “lie”.

    Not a lie of statistical or grammatical error, but a ludicrously engineered, subliminally concocted falsehood at once so absurd as to strike the reader as an insult to human intelligence, and yet so deadly evil that if allowed to go unanswered its final cost would be incalculable.

    I have heard the question asked, “How do you win a LIE*?”

    You can hide from it. You can bury it from your memory. You can pretend it never happened. You can run from it. Make it something else or someone else’s problem. But even a lie holds a grain of truth. You can change the perception of the lie – but when the darkness of the lie finally comes to an end – the ugly truth is then revealed.

    The motivations are not to directly insult anyone’s “RACE” or to incite hatred of any kind, but of the subterfuge it engenders is in showing where the deepest love and ingenuity pertaining to mankind exist and how the truest concern for the development for the planet and its future generations can be secured.

    The purpose is not to out-rightly deceive but to deceptively enlighten and imperceptibly educate through visible works that will help to reflect and to examine the views on “RACE”…

    This has been the episematic foundations of the “RACE” debate and the epistemology has been structured by one dominant group of people …

    Stay tuned for the LIES*…


    LIE* #1: The White race has crossed seas, harnessed rivers, carved mountains, tamed deserts, and colonized the most barren ice fields. It has been responsible for the invention of the printing press, cement, the harnessing of electricity, flight, rocketry, astronomy, the telescope, space travel, firearms, the transistor, radio, television, the telephone, the light bulb, photography, motion pictures, the phonograph, the electric battery, the automobile, the steam engine, railroad transportation, the microscope, computers, and millions of other technological miracles. It has discovered countless medical advances, incredible applications, scientific progress, etc. Its members have included such greats as Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Homer, Tacitus, Julius Caesar, Napoleon, William the Conqueror, Marco Polo, Washington, Jefferson, Hitler, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Magellan, Columbus, Cabot, Edison, Graham Bell, Pasteur, Leeuwenhoek, Mendel, Darwin, Newton, Galileo, Watt, Ford, Luther, DaVinci, Poe, Tennyson, and thousands upon thousands of other notable achievers.

    LIE* #2: Throughout 6,000 years of recorded history, the Black African Negro has invented nothing. Not a written language, weaved cloth, a calendar, a plow, a road, a bridge, a railway, a ship, a system of measurement, or even the wheel. (Note: This is in reference to the pure-blooded Negro.)He is not known to have ever cultivated a single crop or domesticated a single animal for his own use (although many powerful and docile beasts abounded around him.) His only known means of transporting goods was on the top of his hard burry head. For shelter he never progressed beyond the common mud hut, the construction of which a beaver or muskrat is capable.


    LIE* #3: The I.Q.’s of American Negroes are from 15 to 20 points, on average, below those of American Whites.

    LIE* #4: These BlackWhite differences have been demonstrated repeatedly by every test ever conducted by every branch of the U.S. Military, every state, county, and local school board, the U.S. Dept. of Education, etc. The same ratio of difference has held true over a 40 year period.

    LIE* #5: With an average I.Q. of 85, only 16% of Blacks score over 100, while half the White population does. The Negro overlap of White median I.Q.’s ranges from 10% to 25% – equality would require 50%.

    LIE* #6: Blacks are 6 times as likely to have I.Q.’s of 50 to 70 which put them in the slow learner (retarded) category, while Whites are ten times more likely to score 130 or over.

    LIE* # 7: The U.S. government’s PACE examination, given to 100,000 university graduates who are prospective professional or administrative civil-service employees each year, is passed with a score of 70 or above by 58% of the whites who take it but by only 12% of the Negroes. Among top scorers the difference between Negro and White performance is even more striking: 16% of the white applicants make scores of 90 or above, while only one-fifth of one percent of a Negro applicants score as high as 90 – a White/Black success ration of 80/1.

    LIE* #8: Differences between Negro and White children increase with chronological age, the gap in performance being largest at the high school and college levels.

    LIE* #9: White/Black I.Q. differences are constantly excused as results of environmental variations – but at least five studies that have attempted to equate socio-economic backgrounds of the two races indicate no significant change in relative results. As environment improves, the Negro does better but so does the White. The gap is not decreased. In fact, extensive research by Dr.G.J. McGurk, Associate Professor of Psychology at Villanove University, reveals that the gap in intelligence between Blacks and Whites INCREASES where socio-economic levels of both races are raised to the middle classes.

    LIE* #10: In 1915, Dr. G.W. Ferfuson took 1000 school children in Virginia, divided them into 5 racial categories, and tested them for mental aptitude. On average. full-blooded Negroes scored 69.2% as high as Whites. Three-quarter Negroes scored 73.0% as high as Whites. One-half Negroes scored 81.2% as high as Whites. One-quarter Negroes scored 91.8% as high as Whites. All of these Blacks lived as and considered themselves “Negroes.”Their environments and “advantages” or disadvantages were exactly the same.

    LIE* #11: Results of the Army Beta Test given by the U.S. Army to over 386,000 illiterate soldiers in WWI showed Negro draftees to be “inferior to the Whites on all types of tests used in the Army.” Additionally, tests were conducted upon pure Negroes, Mulattoes, and Quadroons. It was found that “the lighter groups made better scores.”

    LIE* #12: Studies conducted with identical twins raised apart in radically different environments provide conclusive evidence that over-all influence of heredity exceeds that of environment in a ratio of about 3 to 1.

    LIE* #13: Even when Blacks and Whites have the same backgrounds, in terms of family income and childhood advantages, Blacks still have average I.Q. scores 12 to 15 points lower than comparable Whites. This includes cases where Black children have been adopted by White parents. Their I.Q.s may be improved by environment, but they are still closer to their biological parents than their adoptive parents.

    LIE* #14: Equalitarian ideologists often discount I.Q. test results with the excuse that they are culturally biased. Nonetheless, NO ONE, not the NAACP nor the United Negro College Fund, nor NEA had been able to develop an Intelligence Test (IQ) which shows Blacks and Whites scoring equally.

    LIE* # 15: American Indians, who often live in conditions far worse than American Blacks during their entire lives, still consistently out score them on I.Q. tests.

    LIE* #16: The offspring of interracial marriages tend to have lower I.Q.s than the white parent.


    LIE* #17: Among human races (INTERESTING CONCEPT) numerous studies have been made of the comparative weight of White and Black brains with results that fell within the range of about an 8-12 percent lower weight for the Black brain. Such studies have been conducted by Bean, Pearl, Vint, Tilney, Gordon, Todd, and others.

    LIE* #18: In addition to the difference in brain weight, the Negro brain grows less after puberty than the white brain. Though the Black brain and nervous system mature faster than the white brain, its development is arrested at an earlier age which limits further intellectual advancement.

    LIE* #19: The thickness of the supra granular layer (the outside layer) of the Black brain is about 15% thinner, and its convolutions are fewer and more simple, on average, than that of the White brain.

    LIE* #20: The frontal lobes of the Black brain, responsible for abstract conceptional reasoning, are smaller relative to body weight, less fissured and less complex than those of the White brain.

    Be inspired for greatness folks!!!

    My God if all this is true that sure as hell would explain the fellow that I saw on TV last night representing the BWA as well as the CEOs of the BADMC, BNOC and the ICB..!

  20. @BAFBFP

    I sent the following questions by e-mail to People’s Business on CBC TV last night and they never surfaced in the programme:

    What is the cause of the losses:

    What is the revenue requirement?
    What are the operating costs?
    What is the value of BWA capital assets?

    What makes the water industry so capital intensive? You have reservoirs and a pipe grid:

    What is the cost of the grid?
    What is the expenditure on pumps?
    What is the cost of treating water?
    What is the average cost of maintaining the pipeline grid?

    It is hardly likely that the public can judge the fairness of the rates without answers to these questions.

    I heard the emotional appeal about 2 cents a gallon. There was a time when we were paying a cent for 100 gallons.

    If it were so trivial, why then worry to calibrate gas pumps? Note that a gas pump which may be off sufficiently to subtract a gill from every gallon can over-collect an average of $1600 per month; free money. Two gills would double it and the customer would hardly miss those 2 gills.

  21. @ROK

    I agree with you and I think that Pete should have been a little more incisive / probing in his questioning. I know that he is very aware of the PR element of the program and of course he is obligated to tender his approach with care…

    But to tell you the truth I still trying to recover from dah post that Terence M. Blackett God!

  22. Lewis Latimer (electric light), Benjamin Banneker (clock), Garrett Morgan (Traffic Light), Dr. Daniel Hale Williams (open heart surgery) as Vivian Thomas (Methemoglobinemia), Dr. Charles Drew (blood plasma), Jan Matzeliger (shoes), Frederick Douglas and Thomas Fuller, Barack Obama were all half breeds.. Oh noo! Philip Reid was black and yes he did complete the casting of that statue that sits on top the White House but he was a scab who took the job when others were striking for higher wages.. Oh Nooo..! This is not looking good for Black Americans. Of course over the past few hundred years when White society (world wide), those who thrived, were concerned with improving their genes, blue bloods and so on, Blacks were being bred for work!

    But then there is Obama himself, a half breed. Could it be said that his IQ was better than his Black father’s and not as good as his White mother’s? Obama senior was and African schollar, one of about twenty brought over to the US from Kenya by JFK in the 60’s… hmmm!

    I am struglin’ here…

  23. About BWA i was told we make alot of money selling water to cruise ships, maybe even more than the island’s consumption itself. Is that fact?

  24. @Ready Done

    I am so glad you raised that. I am in the process of investigating. They sell water for domestic use in about four boxes as they are called and then there is the commercial rate.

    The last figure I saw was that Barbados was pumping 35M gallons of water per day. At 2 cents per gallon that is $750,000 which they are collecting everyday. Just multiply that by 365.

    There are several problems which are associated with water. As far as I see:

    1. there is an element of water in your land tax but this is never transferred to the BWA. Hence that part of the water rate is not counted into the revenue of the BWA but paid into the Consolidated Fund. This arrangement started because of the high number of outstanding water bills and it was decided to raise the land tax by a specific amount in order to offset the arrears. So arrears in water did not start yesterday and the hotels were the main culprits. We know who owned the hotels at that time. Plus there seemed to be a little scam somewhere along the line where property was transferred without the payment of water arrears. BWA could not then collect the arrears from the new owners. The thing is that the law provides for water to be paid prior to the sale of any land that had water arrears attached.

    2. When you pay your water bill, it goes into the consolidated fund and is not at the disposal of the BWA, which like any Government Department, receives an annual budget. We know what Governments do with budgets. This therefore suggests that the revenue that should go to the BWA is not reaching it. With this increase in water rates, since it is going into the consolidated fund, how can we guarantee that the BWA is able to access the money due to it, rather than being diverted to other Government spending?

    There is a serious accounting flaw here which needs to be clarified. If for example, the BWA is collecting sufficient revenue to be viable, but this revenue goes into the consolidated fund and then BWA is handed a pittance out of it, we will always have water woes.

    Just after Independence, BWA was one of the richest entities until the Rt. Excellent Errol Barrow deemed that the money should be paid into the CF, fearing it may be stolen.

    I find it strange that the accounts of the BWA have not been made public so that we could see the justification for the raise in rates. Government has given no proof of any claims it has made for raising water rates.

    What that has done too it is tending to undermine any case that consumers can make against the raise in electricity rates in the eyes of the public. How can you give BWA 60% when their last increase was in 2005 and then tell the BL&P that they can’t have a 40% raise after 25 years? That does not mean we will not put up a fight but it is rather ridiculous.

  25. ROK

    How do I confirm that the money is paid into the consoldated fund? This is the first time that I am hearing this… The BWA recently took out a loan of around 100 million (from whom?) which should suggest that they do not form part of central government’s bugetting agenda..!

  26. @ Terence M. Blackett // September 5, 2009 at 12:24 PM

    This is blabber has no basis in truth.

    The majority IQ STUDIES AND COMPARISON between niggers and honkies has been populated with unsubstantiated theories, hypothesis and reckless sensational posits.

    Because i am standing in a garage does not make me a motor car! Correlations in IQ test scores does not prove causation. It is a sensationalist comment to elicit the responses from people like you and me.

    I know poor white trash and ingrunt niggers and so do you. It has nothing to do with colour, it is what we make of the opportunities that are available to us.

    I acknowledge that genetics can have alot to do with it, as does economics, environments and one’s socialization. A fifty carot diamond in the rough does not auto transmute to a coral stone just because it has not been polished.

    How can a study of blacks, post world war ii be reasonably used as the source of data for comparisons between whites and their intellectual achievement quotient and blacks at that time!

    Just 20 years earlier blacks were not even issued weapons in the WW I. If the system had difficulty with regularizing standard weapons issue at a time of war for its black combatants, is it reasonable to assume that the educational equity which the said white society was doling out to said persons of colour was any more advanced?

    I know that you sent this because you (BAF) just got your internet back on

  27. @BAFBFP


    (Beware the ides of anthropology)…

    LIE* #21: The name Homo Sapiens was first used by the 18th Century Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus. The word “sapiens” means “wise.”The name was originally used to speak of the White man and synonymous with (“europaeus”) EUROPEANS…

    As a result, many later taxonomists and geneticists believed that Negroes and other races should be classified as different species.

    In fact, Darwin declared in “The Descent of Man” that the varieties of mankind are so distinct that similar differences found in any other animal would warrant their classification in different species, if not different genera.

    LIE* #22: For his mammoth work, “The Origin of Races”, Professor Carleton Coon, President of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists and the premier geneticist of the world, assembled massive evidence from geography, anatomy, genetics, physiology, comparative dentition, linguistics, archeology, and fossil records from 300 bone-bearing sites to verify his theory of pre-sapien racianation.” In other words, Homo erectus was divided by race even before evolution into Homo sapien stage.

    LIE* #23: According to Dr. Coon, while the Caucasoid subspecies (the White race) was evolving in Europe, the Negro race was standing still on the evolutionary plane and is today no less than 200,000 years behind the European in skull and brain development.

    LIE* #24: The Negro skull, in addition to having a smaller brain volume and thicker cranial bones than that of the White, is prognathous;i.e., the lower face projects forward, rather in the manner of an animal’s muzzle.

    In consequence, the Negro jaw is substantially longer, relative to its width, than the White jaw. A feature of the Negro lower jaw is its retention of a vestige of the “simian shelf,” a bony region immediately behind the incisors. The simian shelf is a distinguishing characteristic of apes, and it is absent in Whites. (YOU FOLKS GETTING THIS?)

    LIE* #25: The skin of the Negro is thicker and possibly superior to the White’s in the way it impedes the penetration of germs and in its protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. (SUBTLE GRAIN OF TRUTH)

    LIE* #26: The dark color of the Negro is due to melanin pigment which is spread through every layer of the skin and is found even in the muscles and brain. (ibid)

    LIE* #27: An African dentist can tell a Negro’s tooth from a whiteman’s at a glance.

    LIE* #28: Negroes have arms which are longer, relative to body height, than those of Whites. This feature, together with their much thicker cranial bones, gives Black athletes an advantage over Whites in boxing. The skeletal and muscular peculiarities of Negroes’ lower limbs have given them considerable success as sprinters, but have left them relative undistinguished as distance runners. (BE CAREFUL HERE)

    LIE* #29:
    •The hair is black, crispy, and “woolly” in texture, it is flat and elliptical with no central canal or duct like the hair of Europeans.
    •The nose is thick, broad and flat, often turned up nostrils exposing the red inner lining of the mucous membrane similar to an ape.
    •The arms and legs of the Negro are relatively longer than the European. The humerus is a trifle shorter and the forearm longer thereby approximating the simian form.
    •The eyes are prominent, iris black and the orbits large. The eye often has a yellowish sclerotic coat over it like that of a gorilla.
    •The Negro has a shorter trunk the cross-section of the chest is more circular than whites. The pelvis is narrower and longer as it is in an ape.
    •The mouth is wide with very thick, large and protruding lips.
    •Negro skin has a thick superficial horny layer which resists scratching and impedes the penetration of germs.
    •The Negro has a larger and shorter neck akin to that of anthropoids.
    •The cranial sutures are more simple than in the white type and close together earlier.
    •The ears are roundish, rather small, standing somewhat high and detached thus approaching the simian form.
    •The Negro is more powerfully developed from the pelvis down and the white more powerfully developed in the chest.
    •The jaw is larger and stronger and protrudes outward which, along with lower retreating forehead, gives a facial angle of 68% to 70% as opposed to a facial angle of 80% to 82% for Europeans.
    •The hands and fingers are proportionally narrower and longer. The wrist and ankles are shorter and more robust.
    •The frontal and paricial bones of the cranium are less excavated and less capacious. The skull is thicker especially on the sides.
    •The brain of the Negro on the average is 9 to 20% smaller than whites.
    •The teeth are larger and are wider apart than in the white race.
    •The three curvatures of the spine are less pronounced in the Negro than in the white and thus more characteristic of an ape.
    •The femur of the Negro is less oblique, the tibia (shin bone) more curved and bent forward, the calf of the leg high and but little developed.
    •The heel is broad and projecting, the foot long and broad but slightly arched causing flat soles, the great toe is shorter than in the white.
    •The two bones proper of the nose are occasionally united, as in apes.

    LIE*#30: Blood group studies made during WWII suggest the American Blacks gene pool is about 28% white.

    This despite all manner of institutional discrimination, social segregation, etc. Keep in mind that the results of test from true Black Africans would show even bigger differences from Whites.

  28. Every individual interprets the same world differently our access to it is mediated through our senses, experience, conditioning, prior beliefs, and other non-objective factors. The individual world each person occupies is said to be their reality tunnel.
    A parallel can be seen in the psychological concept of confirmation bias – our tendency to notice and assign significance to observations that confirm our beliefs, while filtering out or rationalizing away observations that do not fit with our prior beliefs and expectations.

  29. ¿Adónde fue el señor Adrian Hinds, el señorito ese? ¿A dónde? Nos preguntamos, listos para siempre declarer exactamente quien es ese señorito if he persists in being annoying.

  30. I have sent these comments to a lot of people to get some responses. If there is any truth to anything that was said I for one would like to know for sure. For racism to end in Barbados the White people have got to end this separate but equal campaign that they have been on for so long. There is a good chance that they believe a lot of what you have said. So if there is truth in the comments then they may be somewhat justified with their social agenda… My God..!

  31. @BAFBFP
    “For racism to end in Barbados the White people have got to end this ‘separate’ but equal campaign that they have been on for so long.”

    OPERATIVE word “BRUV” – “separate”…

    After 43 years of “Independence” –
    147 years since the Emancipation Proclamation (22nd September 1862) –
    220 years since the Abolition Speech of William Wilberforce in 1789 –


    Here’s the next installment of LIES*…

    LIES#31: The rate at which Blacks commit murder is thirteen times that of whites; Rape and assault, ten times. These figures, as given by the F.B.I. reports, vary somewhat from year to year but fairly represent the trend for the past decade.

    LIE#32: According to the Justice Dept, 1 in every 4 Black males between the ages of 20 and 29 is currently in prison or on probation or parole.

    LIE#33: Though only 14% of the U.S. population, Blacks commit more than half of all rapes and robberies and 60% of all murders in the U.S.

    LIE#34: Approximately 50% of all Black males will be arrested and charged with a serious felony during their lifetime.

    LIE#35: A Black person is 56 TIMES more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.

    LIE#36: Black rapists choose white victims over half (54.9%) of the time, 30X as often as whites choose Blacks.

    LIE#37: The annual report from the Department of Justice shows that when whites commit violence they do it to Blacks 2.4% of the time. Blacks, on the other hand, choose white victims MORE THAN HALF the time.

    LIE#38: In New York City, any white person is over 300 TIMES MORE LIKELY to be assaulted by a gang of Blacks than is a Black by a gang of whites.

    LIE#39: Many people argue that high Black incarceration rates show that police centered enforcement of Black crimes and ignore white-collar crimes. However, Blacks commit a disproportionate number of white-collar offenses as well. In 1990, Blacks were nearly 3 times as likely to be arrested for forgery, counterfeiting, and embezzlement as whites.

    LIE#40: Many people believe that crime is a product of poverty and lack of “advantages.” However, the District of Columbia, which enjoys the highest average annual salaries and is second only to Alaska in personal income per capita, leads the nation in just about every category of crime including murder, robbery, aggravated assault, and vehicle theft. D.C. also has the country’s strictest gun control, highest police costs per capita, highest ration of police and correctional officers per citizen, and highest rate of incarceration. Its permanent population is over 80%Black. West Virginia, which has the nation’s lowest crime rate, suffers from chronic poverty and has the highest unemployment in the U.S. It also has the fewest police per capita. West Virginia is over 96% white.

    I hope your sociological brain can ingest this subterfuge BAFBFP….

  32. My God… where there is so much smoke there has got to be some fire. I am here waiting for a counter to all of this! Otherwise I will be the first to distance myself from Black Americans and will want to in classify them as a completely separate species, differnent from other Blacks in Barbados and the Lesser Antilles!

  33. LOL Lol

    AH I know you are going to drag me over the coals for this but …..

    I think that Conservatism needs to be branded as an evil (exhale).

    Today it hurt me to listen to the gospel channel where I heard that a pastor Anderson Clarke has prayed for the death of Obama. Furthermore, some parents took their children from schools whilst Obama’s speech was being televised instead these children were taken to a stadium where Bush was giving a speech; and then we claim how far our race has progressed!

    These ultra conservatives are scaryyyyy!

  34. Terence M. Blackett

    I hope that when begin to disprove all of this you include for instance..

    Statistics such as per “capita income” (LIE 40) say little about the spread of the wealth in the area..!

    Law enforcement in the US will look the other way for white collar crime if committed by Whites; they will not ignore those instances that involve Blacks (LIE#39)

    “300 Times MORE likely” can suggest that there are “only” 301 instances of assault in New York cities 8 million population (LIE#38)

    So at least 240 Blacks were victims of crimes that were committed by Whites but only two (2) Whites suffered at the hands of Blacks (LIE#37)

    Seems to me that there are seven times more White potential victims of rape than Black and I am sure that the number is based on ”reported” instances (LIE#36)…

    And so on..

  35. My wife (trust a woman) just gave me this bit of information

    The average size of a gorilla’s penis is about 2 inches, Whites are 6.5 and Blacks are 6.9..who is closer to being a gorilla? I tellya…

  36. @ BAFBFP

    On most Networks such as ABC, CNN and NBC, persons were fretting about Obama’s ‘back to schoolspeech.’

    Then this morning on the gospel channel there was a pastor who was praying for Obama’s death! Many persons were outside his church protesting!

    Sorry I wasn’t so ‘literal’ in my previous post!

  37. @ JC
    “Then this morning on the gospel channel there was a pastor who was praying for Obama’s death! Many persons were outside his church protesting!”

    The arch-right-neo-conservative wing in America has been responsible for much of the socio-religious, socio-political and socio-economic travesties of the last 232 years.

    A Black President called OBAMA CANNOT* change what has been etched and entrenched in the psyche of a people whose historical records bear the transgressions for which only “their god” can punish…


    And if by chance, there happens to be change – it will be change for the worst!!!

    Many do not want to openly admit the facts but if OBAMA* bears the aura and destiny of the two dead presidents he so emulates – he too will bear the spiritual fate of those in whose shadows he walks…

    As students of history, some thing are simply inevitable unless the Divine Creator “WILLS” otherwise…

    Let us keep praying for the brother – “He sure is gonna’ need it”…

  38. @BAFBFP
    “I hope that when I begin to disprove all of this you include for instance…”

    Hey Bruv, (LMAO) there’s nothing to disprove really…

    These are published sociological facts created by academics, statisticians and educated “supremacists” whose sole goal is the perpetuation of the status quo…

    After I have posted all the lies – then I will post the “TRUTHS”…

    So stay tuned for the other coming attractions…

    Good to see you BAFBFP in fighting form…

  39. @ Terence M. Blackett

    How could I be in fighting form..? To dispute any of these claims would require an IQ above that which a Black like myself is not expected to posses..! Then again I am not a Negro either ‘cause I ain’ ‘merican a’ight..!

  40. @BAFBFP –
    @ Terence M. Blackett
    “How could I be in fighting form..? To dispute any of these claims would require an IQ above that which a Black like myself is not expected to posses..!”

    Bovine manure!!!

    You could close your eyes and build an argument without breaking a sweat!!!

    You and I both that those “supposedly” in charge will try to manipulate things in their favor…

    But it’s all a matter of PERSPECTIVE…

    Here’s your next installment of LIES*…


    LIE*#41 – 46% of inner city Black men between the ages of 16 and 62 are unemployed.

    LIE*#42: More than 66% of the children of Blacks are born out of wedlock. Per capita, their illegitimacy rate is ten times that of Whites.

    LIE*#43: Blacks are four and a half times more likely than whites to be on welfare or state benefits.

    LIE*#44: More than 35% of all Black men in U.S. cities are drug or alcohol abusers.


    LIE*#45: The January 1986 issue of the journal of Ethnic and Racial Studies, “Skin Color Preference, Sexual Dimorphism and Sexual Selection: a case of Gene-Culture Co-evolution?” by Peter Frost and Pierre Vander Herghe, stated that in any given race, the women tend to have lighter complexions than the men. Using standard ethnographic files from 51 societies on five continents which have recorded their preference for human skin color, the study found that 30 preferred lighter women and 14 preferred lighter women and lighter men. The cultures of India, China, Brazil and Bali, as well as the Arabs and Negroes regard the lightest women as the most beautiful – perpetuating the aesthetic appeal of the ivory-skinned, rosy-cheeked, blue-eyed, blond “Nordic ideal” of feminine beauty – even though they themselves do not possess the genetic capacity to reproduce such an organism. Over time, the study said, the upper classes of all races have become lighter-skinned than their fellow countrymen because they have repeatedly skimmed off fairer women from the lower classes.

    LIE*#46: Scientific research on what constitutes human beauty, in which 300 judges of various backgrounds were shown portrait photographs and asked to rate the beauty of the individual’s face, has revealed that Nordic Whites are universally recognized as the most attractive humans, even by Blacks. The judges were instructed to evaluate the faces solely on his or her “personal standards of beauty and not to consider popular norms.” The results of the study “Age, Sex, Race, and the Perception of Facial Beauty.” Developmental Psychology, 5, Nov., 1971, pp 433-439, is the point of reference.

    LIE*#47: In experiments in which Black children have been left to themselves with White and Black dolls, it has been found that most of the them would rather play with white dolls. This is true all over the world. Even in such places as Tobago.


    LIE*#48: The Declaration of Independence, which contains the oft-repeated phrase “. . . all men are created equal . . .” was written by Thomas Jefferson, who owned about 200 slaves at the time and never set any of them free, including the mulattoes and quadroons. Jefferson’s words certainly had no reference to Negroes, who at that time had no place in American society except as property.

    LIE*#49: The Constitution was written by and for ‘We the people “and dedicated to “ourselves and our posterity,” All of the 55 delegates that met in Philadelphia to draft the Constitution and all of the members of the 13 state conventions that ratified it were of the white race.

    WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY OF 1828 defines Posterity as: POSTERITY. 1. Descendants; children, children’s children, etc. indefinitely; the race that proceeds from a progenitor. 2. In a general sense, succeeding generations; opposed to ancestors. . .

    LIE*#50: The 14th Amendment is invalid for the following reasons:
    • It was never ratified by three-fourth of all the States in the Union according to Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution. Out of 37 States, 16 had rejected it.
    • Many of the States who were counted as ratifying it, were compelled to do so under duress of military occupation. Any legal act entered into under force duress, and coercion is automatically null and void.
    • The fact that 23 Senators had been unlawfully excluded from the U.S. Senate, shows that the Joint Resolution proposing the Amendment was not submitted to or adopted by a constitutional Congress.
    • The intent of the 14th Amendment is repugnant to the original U.S. Constitution and the Organic Law of the land. It did not, and could not, repeal anything that was part of the Organic Law. Therefore the principles of precedent and stare decisis render it void.

    Interesting huh?

    This is the toxic cloud from which we have had to emerge as a people… Not one single Black person has the “RIGHT” to make any excuses… We must redress the balance…

    Did you see OBAMA* in fighting form last night on the “HILL* – only a Black man could say the things he said… I was laughing my arse* off at 2am GMT…

    What a journey we have to make….

  41. Terence M. Blackett // September 10, 2009 at 8:04 AM

    I have one statistic that shed new light on at least 15 of your “LIES”

    Of the close to 3 million people incarcerated in the US, 90% of them cop for a plea bargain, which means that they never faced a jury of their peers. I Texas for example plea bargains are designed so that “victims” of the judicial process have absolutely no choice but to accept. There therefore is no real measure of criminality in the US!

    Incidentally the U.S. correctional population — those in jail, prison, on probation or on parole — totals 7.3 million, or 1 in every 31 adults. With profiling and other methods of targeting non-whites in full flight, it is easy now to see how easy it is to have the statistics skewed as there are..!

    BIMBRO is not a communist, but the countries that were communist and attracted such contempt from the BIMBROs of the world fade by comparison to what has been happening in the US for so many years.

    My God…

  42. @BAFBFP
    “Sorry Terence but I have been too caught up with Venus and Serena”

    I don’t blame ya’ – especially Serena…What a trojan horse…God sure built that “mama” with His Own Hands…

    Laaad a merci!!!!

  43. Terence, why then was she complaining the other day she did n’t have a boyfriend or, do u have a perverse taste in women?!! i.e. too big everything!!?

  44. @BAFBFP
    “it is easy now to see how easy it is to have the statistics skewed as there are..!”

    The manipulation began with the “ADVENT” of sociology… This was then subtly taught in our institutions of “so-called” higher learning…

    So yes BRUV* – you are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!! Unless serious attempts are made to unravel the skewed nature of what has been purported as sound science – we are left with a lingering stigma which will continue to hang over the heads of people of color – especially BLACK FOLKS!!!

    Regrettably, here is the next installment of diabolical LIES*****

    LIE#51: In Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of Sept.1862 he said: “I have urged the colonization of the Negroes, (back to Africa), and I shall continue. My Emancipation Proclamation was linked with this plan (of colonization). There is no room for two distinct races of White men in America, much less for two distinct races of whites and Blacks. . . . I can think of no greater calamity than the assimilation of the negro into our social and political life as our equal . . . Within twenty years we can peacefully colonize the Negro . . . under conditions in which he can rise to the full measure of manhood. This he can never do here. We can never attain the ideal union our fathers dreamed, with millions of an alien, inferior race among us, whose assimilation is neither possible nor desirable.”

    LIE#52: Lincoln actually proposed an amendment to the constitution that would’ve authorized congress to re-colonize all freed Blacks back to Africa. On Aug. 15, 1962, Congress did appropriate over half a million dollars for that purpose. Thousands of Negroes had been shipped back when Lincoln was shot.

    LIE#53: The District of Columbia, which is approximately 70% Black, leads the U.S. in many areas:
    • The nation’s highest crime rates
    • Strictest gun control
    • Highest incarceration rates
    • Highest birthrate
    • Highest death rate
    • Highest rate of federal assistance per capita
    • Highest number of welfare recipients per capita
    • Highest rate of illegitimacy
    • Highest high school dropout rate even though its teachers are the highest paid in the U.S.
    • Highest rate of gonorrhea and syphilis
    • Highest incidence of AIDS

    LIE#54: Populated by white stock, the nation of Portugal rose in four centuries to be the wealthiest most powerful country in the world. A great commercial and maritime power, it had large colonies in Asia, Africa, and America. Its seamen were the first to explore western Africa and they brought back hundreds of Negro slaves. By 1550, at the height of Portugal’s power, one-tenth of its population were Blacks. Today, Portugal’s population is described as one of the most homogeneous in Europe, having slowly absorbed the Negro gene pool. As of 1975 it had lost all of its outside territories. Its workers are the lowest paid in Europe and they have the highest rate of illiteracy and a high infant mortality rate. In terms of art, literature, music, science and philosophy the “new” Portugal has produced virtually nothing in 100 years and by most standards is the most backward nation in Europe. Keep in mind that the Black population of the U.S. is approximately 14%.

    LIE#55: The Republic of Haiti, the only completely Black republic in the Western Hemisphere also happens to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. It also has the lowest life expectancy, highest illiteracy, lowest per capita consumption of newsprint, lowest per capita GNP, and the lowest level of political stability.

    LIE#56: Haiti once had a promising future. Before 1789 as a French colony under white rule, San Domingo (Haiti) was as rich or richer in productivity as all the 13 American Colonies combined. It was considered the “crown jewel” of the French colonial system, and was in fact the most prosperous colony anywhere in the world. Populated by 40,000 whites, 27,000 freed Mulattoes, and 450,000 Black slaves and with a bountiful climate and productive soil, it supplied all of France and half of Europe with sugar, coffee, and cotton. But in 1791, the French government issued a decree ordering Haiti to give the vote to the Mulattoes and soon after another ordering freedom for all the slaves. This resulted in a bloody civil war in which the entire white population (about 40,000 Frenchmen) was murdered, down to the last man, woman, and child. Rape, decapitation, and mutilation were committed almost universally upon their bodies.

    LIE#57: After the Blacks massacred the last of the white population in 1804, Haiti remained a part of Santa Domingo, until 1844 when it became a separate “republic.” Between 1844 and 1915 only one Haitian president completed his term in office. Fourteen were ousted by armed uprisings, one was blown up, one was poisoned and another was hacked to pieces by a mob. Between 1908 and 1915 the revolutions and assassinations increased so rapidly that a United States military occupation was needed to restore order. This lasted from 1915 to 1934. Thereafter followed twelve years of rule by a Mulatto elite which ended in the resumption of control by the Black military in 1946. Since then wholesale corruption and political murder have been the rule.

    LIE#58: India’s Negroid peoples have been subjected to numerous White invasions for over 5000 years, prompting the rise and fall of one civilization after another as the White invaders became absorbed into the non-white masses. Then, about 1800 B.C. Aryans again invaded from the northwest, this time establishing a rigid caste (“varna.” meaning color) system of white supremacy which eventually evolved into an integral part of the Hindu religion. Interracial mixing was banned and punishable by death.

    LIE#59: Led by an Aryan ruling class, Classical India blossomed into a great culture, giving expression to philosophy, poetry, science, mathematics, and literature. The land prospered as never before – or after.

    LIE#60: The caste system lasted about 2,000 years (probably longer than any civilization under similar racial circumstances.) However, eventually the castes broke down due to miscegenation and by modern times virtually no pure whites were remaining.

    Need I say more….LOL

  47. @ Terence M. Blackett

    When the black race was building pyramids and had a highly advanced culture, arts, fashion, religion, medicine, literature etc, the “white people” were still in caves grunting and living as hunter gatherers.

    To say the Black African negro has invented nothing is pure ignorance. I just dont know where to begin. First of all the black race was the first to cross the seas- see the monolith carvings in Mexico with their negro features and broad noses. Astronomy was not invented by white people. The pyramids are aligned exactly to Orion’s belt. Exactly. The Dogon recorded a star, Sirus B (I think it is called) decades before it was “discovered” by scientists.

    Re the IQ test, Who created this test? I dont think it was a black man. Do you not think it is possible that this test may be slanted to be easier for races other than Blacks.

    I dont know if you have been following the National Genographic project. It has been confirmed that ALL, yes, ALL races originated out of Africa. The black man is the original. A white man is simply a “black” man who through years of adaptation to climatic conditions and selective breeding looses his pigment, gets a smaller nose and straighter hair. A black man posseses what white people have lost – melanin. This is the third most researched thing in medicine now. (Behind, I think cancer and AIDS). We are essentially all one family. And should try to look beyond white and black.

    PS I note in your email, and I dont know if you noticed it, one of the “greats” mentioned is Hitler. Dont you find this suspicious? Which reminds me that white race are responsible for at least 95% of wars, torture, disease creation, economic hardships etc. eg World War 1 and 2, the inquisition, torture of jews etc. And such wonderful inventions at the Atom Bomb and Wepons of Mass destruction etc. Don’t you suspect that this email could be written be a Neo Nazi or a white supremasist. Such garbage, I had hoped, was in the incinerator or land fill but I guess it can always be recycled and used again

  48. It surprised me that she went out with a Jew for so long..! There’s got to be more to these people than meets the eye…! Bonnie know a t’ing or two ’bout Jews, may be she could verify!
