Fighting The Fight Against The Corruption Of Public Morals

CEO Senator Santia Bradshaw of Pyramid and Barbados Labour Party candidate for St. Michael South East (santiabradshaw.com)

Sometimes the most optimistic person in this world is forced to hang their heads and cry shame. Listen to the audio of one of the most popular artists in Barbados. Although recently fired by Voice of Barbados (VOB) he had no difficulty getting back on the airwaves compliments of SLAM 101.1. He is everywhere, on the ZRs, in the dancehalls, the calypso tents, on facebook, dub fetes, he is ubiquitous. He has a loyal fan club mainly comprised of our young minds.

What does he have going for him? He is a member of the Pyramid stable of artists managed by budding politician Senator Santia Bradshaw.

BU family you be the judge. Is he entitled to unbridled freedom of expression under the cloak of freedom of expression? How should we view the role of CEO Senator Santia Bradshaw of Pyramid and Barbados Labour Party candidate for St. Michael South East in this matter. Do we have a case of an artist corrupting public morals?

What can we say? What are we to do?

PLEASE NOTE THE AUDIO CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE AND SHOULD NOT BE LISTENED TO IN THE PRESENCE OF MINORS.

    So, stop drinking the ‘firewater’ that we import for megabucks.

    Same method used to destroy the Native Indian Civilisations of America. And still is.

  • Beverly Myers, take a big high 5! You see how selective freedom of expression is on this blog? Girl, you too right! The owner/host of this blog babbling on yet again abut his version of “freedom of expression”, babbling on about how Lil Rick and his sort and how it corrupts morals, blah blah blah and yet he allowed and continues to allow one immoral and sick “BU family member” to call a murdered white woman “white trash”? Well, well, I guess Lil Rick would have to become a “BU family member” in order for his “art” to be acceptable to David. Too funny and too pathetic.
    Beverly, here is the pathetic part. David will never see the similarities or the hypocrisy of his position.

  • The gist of the blog is not so hard to understand. BU is questioning the moral compass of people in leadership positions or positions of influence. Possible impacts on public morality is something which we must always be cognizant as a society. It is reflected in our laws.

  • As much as I am a Dem , I think that we dissuade and make others disinterested when we attempt to attach party- politics to everything that happens . This has nothing to do with Ms. Bradshaw as a politician . This garbage started a long time ago , so what we now see is the pushing of the envelope ,where folk like Rancid-Thoughts not only have a voice , but also an audience

  • I sure do , but all that I am saying is that we have chosen to look the other way while our country slides to hell in a hen basket . As a matter of fact I wrote a ” Letter to the editor ” at the Nation the very year we were treated to the unfermented Wine , that was hard on the ears only . I said then that we bordered on behaviour that was licentious . Since then the envelope has been pushed by the same persons every year , and we say nothing all because the all mighty (nothing else matters ) dollar rules .

    Correct. But, it all falls under the heading of ‘keeping the masses stupid’.

    Yes, even the well to do youngsters do this, but the difference is that the well to do families ensure that the youngsters get over this ‘phase’ and then go and study to become doctor or engineer or business major.

    But, the non well to do, merely stay with their pants down and lime pon de block listening to stupid lyrics.

    It is called keeping the masses ignorant and stupid.

    Think its by accident? And the fools fall for it.
