    @ Johnny
    … and still he persisted in his ignorance!!
    Happens here again and again!!
    Confession is good for the Soul.

    Perhaps now you can try the same approach WRT the satanic atrocities of your ancestors … which continues to haunt your soul… what’s left of it…

    This is the time that man should know the very righteous way to go
    Live and be clean can’t you see what I mean

    Spying Glass

    Vincent should join up with GCHQ as he makes same ignorant prejudiced conclusions as they do.

    I pointed out to Vince yesterday about how supporting white propaganda case against reparations is supporting white racism, (same semantics but he is no Noam Chomsky),
    but he must have been tired and gone to bed and had a wank instead and ‘kin missed it.

    A riddle for Vincent the Spy of Babylon of where I and I and I reside:

    This is where the focus should be on developing independence. Marcus Garvey was right on this. Many complain regarding financing/ banking discrimination. Therefore, richer Afros should see that as an opportunity to fill that need and make very good returns, everyone could win. This is exactly what the Italians did with B of America and the Chinese/ Japs/ Koreans had their systems.
    How many AfroAms have conducted detailed research, for example, on the success of Mr Johnson of BET fame?

    Vinni, please post this in the Entrepreneur Corner, click on this in the header above, U will see that I have made many posts there trusting that those who are serious will find something of use.

    555 would prefer to play the Race and Victim card instead of trying to actually stimulate people to have courage to progress to true independence. This is one way to throw off the mental shackles which many impose on themselves psychologically.

    Trump was chatting to Aussie PM about the refugees not being of use to Milk People

    meaning white race

    Money loves up racist policy of the Milk People for the Milk People

    and is insincere as F**k

    Interesting that Mauritius has an excellent Entrepreneurial Program to help potential business people, does Bim? Mauritius is another island nation that has performed well and Bajan leaders should be researching and learning from. They have in turn taken lessons from Singapore.

    “… and then you will say he is an oreo … it doesn’t count!!”

    No John it will count. Not as an “oreo” but as a genuine chocolate bar of a politican deserving of leading a country which really belongs to his aboriginal people and not the descendants of criminal Brits and other starving disease-ridden Europeans; Quakers or no Quakers among the pack of thieves.

    What you need to do, Dear John, is to look into the mirror of your soul and ask yourself how you can be so split in your Janus-like twisted personality.

    On one side of the spiritual Jekyll and Hyde fence stands an ideal man of confessional Quaker persuasion extolling the universal brotherhood of man (and woman).

    However, on the other stands a character identical to Hyde who has no compunctions in publicly displaying his unwavering loyalty to a man called Trump who principles and policies are completely at odds to those of the same Society of Friends in Jesus all over the world.

    Until you, Sir John, is able to explain this moral dichotomy of your ‘Quaker-inherited’ love of the immigrant, the poor and the social unwashed compared to your stentorian trumpeting admiration of a man who stands at the other end of the spectrum your credentials as a man of Jesus would forever be put under the BU microscope designed to ferret out and expose people stricken with the plague of hypocrisy and volte-face parasitic infestation.

    The Milk People think they are better than the Chocolate People.

    … But at least the wealth that the Milk People built on iniquity is becoming worth less and soon the Milk People’s currency will be worthless.

    When the milk People are hurting the Chocolate Milks liable to be hurt too!

    Is that the trickle down bullshit theory massa

    when the milk people hurt they cry over spilt milk and mourn losses of their projected profits
    causing the downward spiral in humankind

    West is for Cunts like you not me

    Not sure which post you want transferred to the entrepreneur corner.

    I am a firm believer that when the system gives you lemons…..make lemonade.

    You will note from my recent posts the difference between the American and Caribbean persona. I found it interesting that with the advent of the American black power in the Caribbean during 60s,despite EWBs effort to prevent it,we Pelaus seem in the last 50 odd years not to have progressed in the manner of our forefathers. We seem to have lost the will to be the Maroons that we are capable of being and instead of charting our own course,we want to go begging for recompense that really belonged to our ancestors.We want to wear dead people shoes.

    By now you would realise that I scroll past the trolls and and only respond to individuals making valuable contributions.

    Our contributions will be of use to those with a brain who are able to see that the world is a complex place with a history covering many millenia and that 4000 years is but a blip.


  18. John August 4, 2017 at 11:36 AM #

    I made the comment about lack of knowledge about history just as a generalization and looka who respond!!

    Guess the Massey Fergusson tractor and its appearance a century before it existed was fresh in the mind!!

    The point is that Acosta will leave and appear on CNN or wherever.

    People will hear his input and actually believe him!!!

    … and all the time he is as ignorant as they are!!

    Rush Limbaugh feels it is a deficit in the education system that could produce such a nit wit and he may be right, he usually is, atleast 99.8% of the time if his claim is anything to go by!!

    “Some of these people are just idiots” he claims!!

    @ Vincent The Stuck Up Bitch

    The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate

    10 Fixing eternal Law he, too, upholds it swift moves the might of Law and wins the booty. To Law belong the vast deep Earth and Heaven: Milch-kine supreme, to Law their milk they render.

    11 Now, Indra! lauded,- glorified with praises, let power swell high like rivers to the singer. For thee a new hymn, Lord of Bays, is fashioned. May we, car-borne, through song be victors ever.

    This should be the focus

    It’s been 4 years since I ever so proudly quit my day job in PR, posting a photo on Facebook of my first day of ‘freedom’, sipping on a latte at my local cafe with laptop in tow posting ‘My new office!’ for all to envy…
    But then there I was three years later sitting on the edge of my bed quietly sobbing, head in hands, having barely been paid a salary since leaving my day job, and wondering what the hell was wrong with me that I couldn’t seem to make this self employment thing work.
    You see, the sexy ‘build a freedom business’ line that many in the online world have been selling has been omitting some fairly large truths.
    Truths that I intend on shining a light on. Not ‘the’ truth. But my truth and experience.
    And as your fellow entrepreneur, I feel a sense of duty to protect you, to protect your passions, and to share my own personal life lessons.
    My intention is to make sure you know that, despite what they tell you, despite what they market and sell you, despite what you might tell yourself even, you are already doing EVERYTHING possible to make this thing work.
    There is no ‘missing key’ or business building secret you aren’t in on.
    I know who you are, courageous entrepreneur.
    I see how hard you work.
    I see how persistent you are.
    I see your endless determination.
    I know you have grit, hope and positivity.
    I know you are already doing scary things outside of your comfort zone.
    I know you are showing up.
    I know you are investing in yourself, your personal growth and learning new skills.
    I know you are committed and brave beyond measure.
    So don’t listen to anyone who says you should give more, push harder, work longer, think more happy thoughts, visualize your future more, blah blah blah.
    It’s all bullsh*t to make you buy their stuff, their ‘solutions’. Because they are suffering as much as you are.
    You are ALREADY doing and being ENOUGH! More than enough.
    I know this because I am just like you. And after almost four years of hustling like an absolute mofo, I was exhausted, burnt out and financially plateauing at best.
    But the part that really kills me…
    I started to think I was missing something…
    That I just wasn’t made of tough enough stuff or that perhaps I wasn’t working hard enough…(OMG seriously?!).
    And maybe you’ve had these thoughts too…
    You see, the problem with the world of entrepreneurship is the sales pitch that success can happen almost overnight.
    It doesn’t.
    I guess the sales pitch ‘Build your freedom business and break even in five years!’ isn’t really that sexy…
    So, with that said, I want to share with you 6 things I wish I knew way back when I first decided to take the plunge into self-employment. Life lessons, if you will, from my entrepreneurial journey so far.
    And if you take nothing else from this sharing, I hope that you will agree with me that you are already doing a freaking amazing job!
    1. Slow down to speed up
    If I have one regret about my entrepreneurial journey, it’s that I wish I had stayed in my day job until I had at least started to earn an income that could continue to cover our basic expenses.
    From day one I hit the ground with the background pressure of ‘make some money and quick!’ which was not at all helpful!
    I also left a job that was actually pretty good with people I enjoyed working with and at which I could have easily stuck it out. In hindsight my actions were irresponsible and put my family (and business) under pressure that was ultimately not necessary.
    I had an itch about living my passion and at a moment’s notice decided to scratch it! I had bought into the overnight success myth.
    My advice: If you can slow down and lengthen out the transition phase from your current job to the new venture (unless your current situation is completely untenable) then it not only helps you make course corrections with the space and perspective to do so, it also allows everyone else around you to adjust — whether that’s just to the idea of you building a business/leaving your day job or to change spending habits/cut expenses.
    Slow down now to speed up your potential success later.
    2. Passion cannot exist inside of financial stress
    When I quit my job with zero safety net and little clue of what this business venture would actually look like, it meant that we could no longer afford to rent our apartment and decided to move into my mother-in-law’s basement with our then 3 year old son. I vividly recall sitting in that basement in front of my computer, staring at the screen and feeling particularly exhausted.
    I wasn’t working out, meditating or taking many breaks in-between daycare pick ups because I felt I had no right to relax. After all I was the one who had put my family in this predicament in the first place and so my passion business became this thing that I had to defend and justify — making promises to my husband that any day now I’d be making money and our bank account would be thriving again.
    My advice: If you are under financial pressure (and the pressure point will be different for everyone) then it gets pretty hard to enjoy your passion business, as it was for me at times. So what’s the point? If you are stressed ‘living your passion’ you might as well be stressed back at your day job earning a salary. Protect your passion and creativity at all costs, even if it means you dabble on the side for the first few years. Don’t let your passions be tainted or die because they can’t carry the weight of the financial burden, hustle and expectations. What you have to offer the world is too precious.
    3. Build a safety net and then don’t touch it!
    I hear a lot of people talk about how they built up a safety net before taking the plunge, which is great in theory but then that safety net gets slowly eaten into as their income dives and they dip into that fund to cover expenses. Don’t quit your job and then just watch your safety net dwindle away. The purpose of a safety net is that it remains in place, not that it slowly falls apart leaving you exposed.
    My advice: As someone who never even had a safety net (I know…), let alone protected it, I may not be one to talk, nonetheless, my advice is to build up a safety net of 6–8 months of expenses and then start to dabble and experiment and see if anyone is actually prepared to pay you for what you are creating. If you start to think to yourself ‘I’m going to have to dip into my safety net’ then consider that a red flag that you need to generate income some other way while you figure out this entrepreneurial thing.
    4. It’s ok for your passion to remain a side project
    For the past four years I fell into the trap of very black and white thinking: either it’s my passion OR a day job. But in reality it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s very possible, and it’s my recommendation, that your passion remains a side project (at least for the first 3–5 years). I certainly got caught up in the whole ‘live off your passion’ sexiness and read story after story of people who had ‘made it’ and thought that it was only right that my passion also be my full-time gig.
    But I have since come to realize that:
    It’s ok for my passions to remain just that and that I personally experience the full joy of the things I love when financial pressure is absent
    a 9–5 day job is the best option for me personally to earn a competitive salary which in turn allows me to experience more joy partaking in my passionate work on the side (because the financial pressure is off)
    a day job can actually be something that I enjoy and enables me to contribute to the world, just in a different format, and
    I can actually earn more as a whole by working a 9–5 while transitioning my passions into a sidehustle business thereby allowing me to enjoy what I love without the financial expectations and sales goals.
    My advice: Give yourself permission to enjoy your passion project as a sidehustle for the first 3–5 years, then reassess based on data and feedback you have gathered along the way to decide if the project has legs as a full-time business venture.
    5. You must be prepared to sell and hustle
    If you do decide that you would like your passion business to earn income, the one thing I wish I had of known was that one of the top skills you must have or learn is sales.
    I initially wanted to do all the comfortable stuff: build a website, write content, create social media accounts ect. But I slowly realized that none of that stuff was the 80/20 that would actually propel the business forward financially. I had to sell what we were offering (oh lord!).If you aren’t prepared to have sales conversations, to market yourself, to have prospecting meetings etc, then what you are creating won’t be seen by those who might need it and ulimtately buy it.
    Any by the way, no matter how financially successful your products or services become, there is no summit where you are suddenly exempt from selling or hustling. In fact, some of the most successful entrepreneurs are also some of the fiercest and highly converting sales people I know.
    My advice: No matter how amazing your creation, be prepared for the fact that it won’t sell itself. That’s your #1 job now and forever — to sell.
    6. Dumb luck accounts for a much larger proportion of success than you probably realize
    I seriously have no idea what the formula for success is in entrepreneurship and I’ve taken my fair share of courses! I have no idea how some people are able to sustain themselves financially off their passion business while others with equally as good businesses do not.
    I’ve had opportunities and exposure many in my space dream of, like speaking in front of crowds of 1,000+ ideal potential clients and a regular writing spot on a popular personal development blog read by 250K+ subscribers.
    And yet still I wasn’t able to come even close to replacing my old salary of four years ago. There could be a multitude of reasons why, but it does leave me to believe that dumb luck must be a factor and perhaps accounts for more of the success than we realize.
    There are countless entrepreneurs who have phenomenal ideas, solid foundations, intentions, and natural gifts but who never ‘make it’ because they never experienced enough dumb luck along the way.
    And dumb luck unfortunately can’t be fabricated or strategized (lord knows I’ve tried!). You just have to be at the right place at the right time — kind of like that beautiful girl that gets discovered in the mall and becomes a supermodel. Someone has to share your project to an influencer, or you get featured on a prominent platform with a ready-made audience, or perhaps you get invited to deliver a keynote speech or accepted to give a TED talk etc.
    My advice: Cut yourself some slack and know that dumb luck may or may not intersect with this particular journey of yours. Let it go, keep showing up, and just enjoy the ride as best you can.
    Don’t ‘Go hard or go home’; instead ‘Slow down and sustain’
    Despite all of the challenges we entrepreneurs face as we strive to do what we love and despite how exhausting it can be, it’s clear to me that taking this path is simply the best kind of education anyone can ask for.
    And not just that, entrepreneurship is the only way we are going to find solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges right now.
    We entrepreneurs cannot afford to become exhausted and burnt out.
    You are too important. We are too important. Your ideas are too important.
    Now more than ever the world needs your unique contribution, it needs your ideas, your alternate thinking and your ability to maintain the pace to bring that contribution, idea and thinking into reality.
    I know who you are, courageous entrepreneur. You are doing an amazing job.

    As man John!!

    When you are digging around in cemeteries and archives … do you ever come across any of those pictures that were used as postcards…. the ones showing the bodies of young black men tied to planks …and burned from the feet up – to die agonising deaths in front of cheering crowds of people – crowds looking surprisingly similar to you….?

    Or postcards of lynchings? … that were exchanged to celebrate the murder of ‘uppity’ blacks (like Bushie) …who dared to talk back to wunna…. or to just look into the faces of your ‘Quaker’ types? …or at wunna women?

    Bushie understands that even simple research into the photo albums of your parents may be quite revealing…

    …or do you make a special effort to avoid such ‘biased’ evidence?

    That’s the only solution
    To end all these crimes

    They took us away from Africa
    On a rocking ship
    They brought us to Jamaica
    on a heavy ginalship
    In the Valley of Jehosaphat

    So open the gate
    Let’s repatriate

    So open the gate

    Bushie understands that even simple research into the photo albums of your parents may be quite revealing…

    My father grew up in New York, born in 1909 in Trinidad.

    My mother grew up in Barbados, born 1922 in Barbados.

    You really need to go back to school and get an education.

    Slavery ended in 1834 in Barbados and 1865 in the US.

    Neither my parents nor their parents were around at the time of slavery!!

    You should look at the history of photography and realise the chances of seeing a photograph in a family album from that era is well nigh impossible.

    Perhaps paintings of an artist’s impression, but definitely not real life still photos.

    The earliest image of an ancestor I have seen was from the 1830’s, possibly before but of course, it wasn’t a photo!!

    I have seen a couple of photo’s from the 1880’s I guess but could have been much later.

    Most of the early ones I have seen are from the 1910’s/20’s.

    By then if you go and check your text books you will see the Quakers had ended slavery, …. loooooong before!!

    Go back to school or try actually thinking before you write!!

    Rush Limbaugh’s interpretation is right, no need to question his claim of being right 99.8% of the time.

    People have lost the ability to critically think but will speak with moral certitude and be totally wrong …. even though they make complete jackasses of themselves!!

    If it were not so serious it would be funny!!

    Lynchings continued after Slavery

    Last recorded lynching was in 1981.

    White People collected lynching postcards because they felt good about their sickness.

    Lynchings continued after Slavery
    Last recorded lynching was in 1981.

    Which part of Barbados did these lynchings take place?

    The other day I went looking all over Barbados for the slave breeding operations that were claimed on this blog to be still in operation.

    Well actually I didn’t go outside the parish as I knew it was total rubbish …. besides …. slavery was over more than a hundred years (century) ago.

    It was you who made the claim if remember correctly … but of course I could be mistaken as I was able to quickly dismissed the possibility through some simple critical thinking!!

    You see what I mean … a complete lack of critical thinking … Rush Limbaugh is right!!!!!

    If anyone wants to invoke family photo albums, they better say where their imaginings took place because for sure I never heard of any such imaginings in my family oral history!!!

    Quite the opposite!!


  29. John August 4, 2017 at 11:09 PM #

    Now if you turn to African slave practices from the days of the Arab slave trade.

    In the Sudan, today, there are actual videos of women and children captured in slave raids and eyewitness accounts of the murder of the men.

    The stories of castration for males and life of a concubine for women from way back …. totally believable.

    Genetic warfare … both today and yesterday … you could debate whether castration and genital mutilation was more civilized than murder … but that is one debate you would have with some one else .. not me.

    Boko Harum …. this behavior is consistent with behavior described in days of yore.

    So you know there is a very strong element of truth to the cruel and extreme practices Africans meted out to one another in the past as they built up the slave trade first with Arabs and then with both Arabs and Europeans.

    Selling one to another … standard practice.

    Raiding … standard practice.

    I can repeat again with no fear of contradiction that my African Ancestors probably breathed a sigh of relief when the found out their were in the consignment destined for Barbados and not the one destined for the Arab markets.

    Unless yours were completely dumb and incapable of critical thinking I will bet that they did too!!

    You can correct me if you think I am wrong!!

    @ Money B
    I certainly agree that the above is vile, putrid, wild animal behaviour to which I should never be associated.
    Well said Money B.

    That is all anyone here ever asked…. It says that you are human.
    But you were always ‘different’….
    If you could ever get over your (instinctive) love of money, you could pass as a bushman yuh… 🙂

    That someone could fail to conclude as you did … and that John can continue with the lotta convoluted shiite that he continues to deposit here on BU (for example…that historical facts can be dismissed ‘because he could not find some shiite in some parish’) …or that he is unaware ‘that lynchings occurred in Barbados’…. when his father grew up in the USA …where historians actually are intelligent… and where it is all documented in detail…..

    The USA – who got their Slave Code from Barbados….

    Man Money B … see if you can explain to this Johnny about the difference between being a HUMAN BEING …and being a cold, heartless, unrepentant animal….. capable of the kind of behaviours in which his ancestors excelled…..
    Obviously it is only for lack of ABILITY and OPPORTUNITY… that John has not already lynched Kiki’s donkey …..

    …and of course there is the big-ass whacker…so he can’t touch Bushie…

    Ok, so I take it these lynchings never happened in Barbados, a complete figment of people’s imaginations!!

    A waste of time!!


  32. John August 5, 2017 at 4:27 AM #

    ….. so BT, in the absence of proof of atrocities I don’t have anything to dissociate myself from with respect to any of my a Quaker ancestors some of whom owned slaves, some who did not!!

    I consider that in helping to make Barbados a retreat from religious persecution in England they provided a sanctuary for some of my African ancestors and a bastion of hope.

    But I have to admit I am heartily ashamed of some of my African ancestors and their roles in the enslavement of their own peoples … my peoples, … some my own ancestors.

    I cannot comprehend how supposed humans could perpetrate the atrocities they did on their own kith and kin,

    How do you feel about your African ancestors … are you proud of them all or are you, like me, thankful that atleast some of them escaped the hell of Africa to the sanctuary of Barbados and avoided the genetic warfare practiced against them?

    One thing is sure … we can’t choose family.

    Which part of Barbados did these lynchings take place?

    Who said Barbados you Asshole?

    You said Barbados you wanker.

    Barbados was a Slave Port
    Slaves were carried beyond Barbados depending on whims of Traders

    White Trash are not Critical thinkers you racist moron.

    You are old and senile.

    When you argue against reparations you are proving you are racist
    When you support Trump trash you are proving you are racist

    Racists can shut up about Reparations

    Racism of Whites Slavery continued with segregation and Jim Crow denial of black peoples rights in all forms of human interaction

    I could never understand how pasty whites could be prejudiced against likes of spiritual black beings (who were prophets and messengers of God) such as Billie Holliday, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and many more

    Money B said :
    “I certainly agree that the above is vile, putrid, wild animal behaviour to which I should never be associated.

    There are evil, wicked whites just consider the Football Hooligans as an obvious example OR those that put the cladding on the recent towering inferno in London.”

    That was (and still is) the mindset that brainwashed whites

    Whole communities joined in to watch and be part of lynchings.

    The ring leaders who inflicted wicked brutality built up their reputations as community leaders.

    Reparations is about remedying past wrongs and putting the prejudiced mindset to rest.

    African slaves were in United States of America from it’s conception
    many European Immigrants came much later and still followed the racist mindset and pecking order of races.

    Oh, Lord, don’t let ’em shoot us!
    Oh, Lord, don’t let ’em stab us!
    Oh, Lord, don’t let ’em tar and feather us!
    Oh, Lord, no more swastikas!
    Oh, Lord, no more Ku Klux Klan!

    In reading the responses of John and MB,we have proof positive of the troll’s agenda ably aided and abetted by the schizoid BT of holding the progeny of the european tribes responsible for all of mankinds iniquity.

    Now this an interesting posit,which again has no base in historical facts as has been shown time and time again by John.

    Again we see the American barbarism being used to invade this post on reparations.

    My posit is that the majority of Americans of any pigment have the same thinking as shown by the trolls who wish to exterminate all melanin poor individuals off the face of the earth and forevermore kill any child that has the mutant gene which caused the pigment loss in the first place around 12000 years ago.

    One can only feel sorry for individuals who hate themselves so much and wish to eradicate their european ancestry by killing all of those tribes but at the same time is not interested in all the killings in Chicago since 1981,the present day atrocities in Somalia,Congo or that little matter of genocide in Rwanda.

    No,no,no,no……they will never allow facts to intrude on their self imposed state of victim hood……I have known others like that who end up stark staring bonkers when they no longer have that crutch to hold on to.

    @ Vincent
    You are using your known slave name….
    Stop embarrassing yourself and your family nuh!!!

    If you believe that there were no lynchings in Barbados, then you probably ARE as stupid as you come across on this thread….. Did you attend Sir Cave’s play on Bussa…..?
    Do you think that ‘historians’ like John, Hoyos and the others of their ilk would carefully document such family history….?
    What makes you believe John over Sir Cave?
    Hilary’s grave error was to stop educating Bajans about their history …and to instead accept the white trojan horse called Cave Hill….

    Bushie is no damn historian …. the bushman did not have the heart to suffer through the sadistic debauchery of the sick ‘Johns’ of Barbados….. If he did, Bushie may well be welding a mach9 now….instead of a whacker….

    It is not difficult to see why John delves into such study … it is clearly his substitute for sex…. in the absence of the ability to actually LIVE those vile experience in 2017… he gets his ‘offs’ by pushing his nonsense down the throats of gullible brass bowls like you – Vincent…..

    …but not stinking Bushie….
    Like Caswell, Bushie does not do poles or polls…

    Do you realise your cousin could be Boko Harum …. or have been even Idi Amin Dada?!!

    It gives me the creeps to think we could share these specimens of the human race as family!!

    … but, I survive in the knowledge that God has put me on this earth to do his will, He as given me the tools, no more or no less than I need so I get on with the work I believe he has set me to do.

    I think the examples of the past humble us because they make us realise we just cannot choose our family!!


  45. Vincent Haynes August 5, 2017 at 9:10 AM #


    Chuckle…..boyo,your belief in Sir Cavs twistory says it all,especially when you bring in Bussa to validate it….lol

    … have flashes of lucidity which I will give you credit for but other than that your brain is truly frazzled with the bunkum you have ingested orally and mentally.

    The bit I like best is for you the biggest gullible brassbowl to dare refer to others as such…..LOLOLOL

    John researches and brings facts,some of which are open to interpretation but instead of doing your own research in order to discuss/debate/counter the facts you only want to play the man…….you are truly beyond being a brassbowl.

    Rereading your post and thinking on your other posts about the political class…..I must say that you really have a nerve to point fingers at them when you are no different…….chuckle…..yup…..take a good look at yourself in the mirror.

    Note the reason for the above is for those who read these blogs to better understand the person you are……not for for your edification… you are truly beyond the pale……a Sarah Palin….lol.

    John “… but, I survive in the knowledge that God has put me on this earth to do his will, He as given me the tools, no more or no less than I need so I get on with the work I believe he has set me to do.”

    You are not making any righteous stand for God only pushing your own racist agenda

    God created all Muslims Hindus Buddhists Christians

    Christian Slavers and Colonialists did not even believe the Bible themselves when they preached about God but spread racial and religious war and terror

    The West African slaves stolen by Colonialists were muslims

    One wonders why the trolls do not colonise another part of Africa or join their relatives who conquered and subjugated the original tribes of that area.

    The American Colonization Society (ACS) was formed in 1817 to send free African-Americans to Africa as an alternative to emancipation in the United States. In 1822, the society established on the west coast of Africa a colony that in 1847 became the independent nation of Liberia.

    Something that was reinforced to the BU household many years ago while attending a Bobby Morris lecture is that one has to be careful when researching and regurgitating history, it is always reflected through the eyes f those scribbling it, most of the time if not all by the White man who brings a filter as we all do.

    That statement of Morris’ is known by all true researchers of history and is especially known by local twistorians with an agenda to full fill,irrespective of melanin content.

    All researchers know to check and recheck and in the end show your sources for your conclusion which allows others to look for more sources and do their own interpretations.

    Presently the greatest number of books/papers/docs available to western society are by authors of the progeny of european tribes and should always be looked at with a pinch of salt.


  52. Bush Tea August 5, 2017 at 10:01 AM #

    @ David
    Excellent intervention.
    History is just that…. somebody’s story of his perspective of events.

    For example, Bushie’s recall of Vincent’s school career could only place him in the “stupid person category” of his above video.
    Historically therefore, it makes no sense (based on HIS own evidence presented) trying to have a rational discourse with him….

    Anyone who would take a wannabe white Bajan’s word on the history of slavery in Barbados – a long series of atrocities perpetrated by his grand parents on the fore parents of his (overwhelming) neighbours, friends, workmates and associates – has to be SUPER naive.

    Wuh David – even Bushie would be tempted to ‘moderate the truth’ to avoid repercussions from Blacks with low levels of self-restraint….. far less John – who (unlike Money B) seems to have inherited the genes that drove his ancestors’ wickedness.

    So any ‘lynchings’ that may have occurred in Barbados would (in John’s world) have been unfortunate incidents where Blacks were picking breadfruit, slipped from the trees, and got caught in the safety ropes that were kindly supplied by the caring white slave owners…

    Obviously the ‘story’ as seen by the unfortunate swinger’s wife or young son would have been equally biased in the other direction….

    Bushie is simply ‘whacking out’ the TRUTH…..


  53. David August 5, 2017 at 10:02 AM #


    Keep searching for the manuscripts scribed by the slaves.


  54. 555dubstreet August 5, 2017 at 10:03 AM #

    There is no impartial slavery reparations discussions or acknowledgment of all crimes on UK and US internet sites as UK and US Governments are bent for their cause covering up their breaches in human rights laws.

    Do you, do you remember those days of slavery?
    It wasn’t black man alone, who died thru bravery.
    ‘Though some a dem threw dem self over board,
    because dis ya slaveship overload.


    It wasn’t black man alone,
    That really really suffer as slaves.
    But we suffer the hardest way until today.


    Some a dem commit suicide,
    And thru disease we caught some a dem died.
    De whole world a cry, dem a cry, dem a cry, dem a cry.


    Do you, do you remember those days of slavery?
    Thru crooked rocks, dangerous ocean,
    In ya dis ya civilisation.


    Me said-a do you, do you really remember,
    When it was the day of slavery?
    Chiney man, Indian, white man died thru bravery.
    But as black man we suffer as slave,
    The hardest way until today.

    Chuckle…..its called oral history……revered by some untill it conflicts with their agenda.

    When the Griots tell you of Washington Pitt Franklin the wannabe emperor of Bim back in the ’50s it was acceptable untill it was decided that Bim needed an invented Black victim hero as opposed to a real one like London Bourne…….and the gullible idiots of Bim(not all) lapped it up.

    Sir Cav is very Trumpesque and should run for the PM position of Bim.

  59. Vincent Haynes August 5, 2017 at 11:13 AM #


    Do not bring in John… Oral history has nothing to do with this post other than to answer your question which in turn question the credibility of one of the foremost proponents of reparations who is also the author of the Bussa myth.

    All of my postings were based on research done by others and were placed on here for discussion.

    England started Slavery in 1540
    4,000,000 Africans were taken by England and called Slaves

    Total population of England in 1540 was 2,700,000

    Bajans home and abroad forget and disown their kunte kinte African roots

    and also are disenfranchised with their other brothers and sisters carried away to other lands

    point is… a total memory of all past knowledge needs to be regained for fulfilment of purpose

    the knowledge is there
    there are no excuses
    you got to open up your synapses
    the pathways to your brain

  63. Hants August 5, 2017 at 12:12 PM #

    Hants simplistic rant!

    If Black Bajans were atheists there would be no white Bajans in Barbados.

    Fortunately the “christian churches” have inculcated the “fear of God”, forgiveness and the

    acceptance of a “moral” christian code.

    I here watching Toronto Caribbean Carnival parade on CP24. Have to focus.


  64. John August 5, 2017 at 12:26 PM #

    My aunt passed on knowledge to me of my Bajan heritage and genealogy by word of mouth — that is to say —— orally!!

    I got it also from my mother, her sister and also her uncles, her brothers —– orally.

    I got stories passed on to her and her siblings by her grandmother about her grand father and parents — orally.

    I got family history going back to the 1770’s orally …. for free.

    I then checked it against the records in the Archives because I like facts and will avoid speaking about something I can’t prove or atleast quote facts to support.

    I wish I had listened more closely but it is too late now.

    That’s why it is so easy for me to expose people who do not know what they are talking about!!

    I have the facts …. and the story that ties the facts together!!

    I am lucky, many people I meet now starting to look at their genealogy have it tough because they never took the time to sit and listen to their family stories.

    I never man return from the dead

    I never seen a man say he’s from heaven or hell

    a man can’t do more than his time

    they’re just gone gone down the drain

    when we remember them

    there’s sometimes tear drops like rain

    but they’re just gone gone down the drain

    and you will live to be a better man

    don’t you go go down the drain

    Oral history is a big thing.

    For those who still have a chance to connect with your past through your living parents and grand parents ……

    ….. just do it, ignore these idiots!!

    It nullifies the efforts of any paid historian trying to create a new narrative.

    Prevents brainwashing by idiots.

    Once you confidently know of your past from your family … not many can shift your perspective on life … plus, it drives those trying to do the shifting bananas.
