Dear Colleagues,

Please see the attached Declaration of the International Conference on Reparations that was held in Caracas, Venezuela between the 8th and 10th of May 2018. The background to the Conference was the historic March  2018 announcement of the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela that it was officially committing Venezuela to the pursuit of Reparations for the damage caused to the Afro-Venezuelan people as a result of the centuries of European orchestrated slavery and slave trade.

In so doing, the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela became the first Government to officially launch a campaign for Reparations since the historic Reparations claim launched by the fourteen independent nation states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in August 2013.

The Conference was attended by scores of delegates from the Caribbean , Africa, Latin America, the United States of America, and Europe, all of whom adopted the attached Declaration.

Attendees from the Caribbean included Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Mr Jomo Thomas, Deputy Chairman of the CARICOM Reparations Commission, Dr Pedro Welch, Chairman of the Barbados government’s National Task Force on Reparations, Ms Mireille Fanon, daughter of legendary Pan Africanist freedom fighter Franz Fanon and a leading Reparations scholar and activist in her own right, and Mr Bobby Clarke veteran Pan-Africanist lawyer .

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela– the host of the Conference– provided a solid foundation for the event with participation and inputs from the leadership of the newly established Afro-Venezuelan Commission on Reparations, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jorge Arreaza, and President Nicholas Maduro.


Caracas, May 8th – 10th, 2018


We, activists, scholars, government representatives and social movements, gathered in the city of Caracas, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela from 8th to 10th May, 2018, on the anniversary of the anti-slavery and humanitarian rebellion of the Maroon Jose Leonardo Chirino, which occurred in Las Macanillas, Falcon State, on May 10th, 1795, declared as the Afro-Venezuelan National Day.

Delegates from different parts of the world gathered with the aim of discussing the topic of Reparations and finding a common strategy that enables us to translate what was discussed into concrete actions and results in the short, medium and long term.

We welcome the calling of this Meeting by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and recognize the encouragement given by President Nicolas Maduro Moros and the Bolivarian government to the topic of Reparations, placing it as a line of political action that shall generate a wide support from social movements, political organizations and national governments litigating reparation cases.


Racism, discrimination, xenophobia and their related forms have intensified in recent times as a result of the continuity of the consequences of slavery and its many contemporary effects and impacts.

The trafficking of enslaved persons and slavery were recognized as crimes against humanity at the 3rd United Nations World Conference against Racism and its related forms, held in Durban, South Africa, in 2001.

After developing the discussion points related to legal-juridical, multilateral, political, historical, economic, social and philosophical aspects of Reparations within the framework of this meeting, we hereby declare, and commit to:

1. Joint and collective legal efforts to demand and ensure that those States that were and are legally and morally responsible for the trade in enslaved Africans (including the transatlantic slave trade) and for slavery shall make compensation for the damages and traumas caused to the African people and their descendants.

2. Form a multidisciplinary work team to channel the legal and economic / historical process of reparations as one of the priority tasks of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent. Such work team must include Governments of progressive countries, the CARICOM Reparations Commission, research centers specializing in the topic of reparations, universities, the United Nations (UN), as well as social and community-based organizations committed to achieving reparations.

3. Create a Venezuelan Research Center specialized in Reparation Processes in relation to Slavery and to Contemporary Struggles in Africa, Our America and Europe against the dispossession of lands, rivers, religious spaces and new forms of neocolonization, articulated to others parts of the world with similar characteristics.

4. Establish alliances based on the topic of reparations with the Thabo Mbeki Foundation of South Africa and others, as a strategic mechanism for the exchange of experiences, training and promotion of the reparation topic on the African continent, in Our America and in the Caribbean.

5. Establish a “modus operandi” as a result of which our reparations movements and campaigns will ensure that the roles and positions that are undertaken will be shared equally between women and men.

6. Promote a United Nations (UN) high level meeting on Reparations and develop a continuing strategy which allows us to make the issue a priority in different multilateral forums.

7. Make the topic of Reparations a priority in multilateral spaces such as CARICOM, ALBA, the African Union, the Non-Aligned Movement, GRULAC, the United Nations, and BRICS, among others; and emphasize the need to consolidate strategies and tools for the effective negotiation and the pursuit and achievement of Reparations in such spaces.

8. Include indigenous populations in this struggle. To this end, the ALBA Executive Secretariat has hereby presented a proposal allowing such articulation.

9. Implement an international campaign addressed to the peoples of the world in general and to policy makers in particular, with the aim of making the topic of Reparations a priority.

10. Promote the understanding that the entitlement to Reparations is a human, ethical and political right in order that the crimes committed in the times of the transatlantic slave trade, conquest and colonization of indigenous peoples, and slavery  be definitively punished as crimes against humanity that caused social and economic inequality among our peoples.

11. Pursue the topic of reparations as a fair demand based on justice, respect and dignity, and not on confrontation.

12. Encourage social movements, and relevant civil society organizations such as the trade unions, to ally themselves with States and other institutions and organizations with the aim of fostering the historical claim processes of Afro-descendants in pursuit of their legitimate rights.

13. Recommend that the States of Our America and of the Caribbean extend official recognition to Afro-descendants and to their entitlement to their legitimate rights in the Constitutions of our States, and also give legislative commitments to  implement the International Decade for the People of African Descent as decreed by the United Nations.

14. Recognize and acknowledge the strong and firm support given by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the establishment of the Legal Multidisciplinary Team which shall be responsible for addressing the reparation cases.

We, the participants of the International Meeting on Reparations, approve this Declaration on May 10th, 2018, in the city of Caracas, Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

223 years after the pro-independence movement by Jose Leonardo Chirino, the Afro-Venezuelan Day!

  1. Why weren’t these Afro-Venezuelans enriched by the oil money, their tax dollars and other wealth than can be found in Venezuela?….just as the 1% super wealthy were…same question can be asked…minus the oil wealth…of most Caribbean countries.

    All the successive governments of south, central latin americas and the Caribbean can be accused of enriching whites and others at the expense of the Black/African populations…

    ….they can ALL be accused of STILL to this day… keeping the institutions and structures of racism, discrimination and disenfranchisement of of their majority and minority Black populations in place….to benefit a minority number of criminals and themselves.

  2. @ well Well and Consequences

    Your observation is particularly salient as It related to the disenfranchisement of Afro Venezuelans notwithstanding what is a nobly penned articulate Declaration

    It only goes to show you what is meant when it is said “the devil also knows how to quote scriptures

    @ Mr. David Commisiong (Whitehill you will note that since Mr. Commisiong is participating in an activity which I endorse de ole man is respectfully addressing him)

    I noted the following item in the Declaration and wondered as to its wisdom

    “3. Create a Venezuelan Research Center specialized in Reparation Processes in relation to Slavery and to Contemporary Struggles in Africa, Our America and Europe against the dispossession of lands, rivers, religious spaces and new forms of neocolonization, articulated to others parts of the world with similar characteristics.”

    De ole man wonders as to the wisdom of locating said research centre in Venezuela (or is it to be a Venezuelan Centre otherwise located?) and would caution that such locale might jeopardise the establishment of the centre if they seek resources from the UN

    Finally, just as a matter of passing interest I have a question for you.

    I would understand if you do not answer I have that effect on soe people heheheheh

    As an attendee to this gathering, did you pay for your expenses or were they covered by the Venezuelan government?

    You may not want to disclose that detail AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO since, the monies Trump purportedly paid to Stormy Daniels, those employment may come back to haunt you should the local Mueller equivalent Freedom Cried get wind of the fact that your are being paid by Maduro

    Does that make you the male equivalent of Stormy Daniels?

    Why after all if she is a a old who** you dun know what Freedom Cried going call you lolololol

    Whuloss David I heah pissing meself…

  3. @ The Honourable Blogmaster de ole man hath written a comment which is in suspense here

  4. A Collective Bunch of Socialist/Communist while Running out of other people’s money gather together to Plot, Demise and Strategies how to use the Entitlement Ploy to secure that their Tiefing Continues Unobstructed and with the Applause of those who believe in Robing Peter to Pay Paul…

    The Root cause of All our Ills is that the System of Governance of SOCIALISM is a Fraud and a Ponzi Scheme that inevitably collapses into a State of Communism.

    It is a Lie Perpetuated on we the People of the world. It is the Counterfeit of Freedom and Liberty Masquerading as a Political Philosophy of being Benevolent and Charitable while it is the Exact Opposite!

    Socialism has no theory of wealth creation; it’s just a destructive, Envy-Driven Fantasy about Redistributing of Wealth after something else (and somebody else) creates it first. The slow poison of Government and Corporations, Crony Capitalism has infiltrated almost every level of Socialist Countries and is now being used as fodder to promote Socialism.

    They say One Thing but Act Contrary to Reality and want us to Believe the Lie that they are Caring and Benevolent.
    In reality they are Our New Masters not Civil Servants of the People and are the ones who benefit not anybody else.
    Tell me again, are we Free when they take more than Half of what we earn to prop up themselves and their friends?

    And in addition engage in the Corrupt Game of Pay To Play!!

    Socialism is Un-Christian it is Theft by Socialist Government and Preaching the Gospel of Envy to get people to buy into their Robbery by promising some of the Spoils to poor folk (see the commandments, thou should not Envy, thou should not Steal).

    If you are Propagating Breaking the Commandments as in Stealing whose Servants are Ye?

    These Ideologues Digging Far Back in time while the New Colonizers of Africa are the Chinese, they build some in fracture works like roads which you have to pay for obviously, then come the Demands such as the Exploitation af the Natural Resources of Africa and the Demands of the Policy of the Country but we would not hear anything about that as the Socialist among us and the Chinese are KIN and we all Know that Blood thicker than water.

  5. The article keeps stressing about all these ‘scholars’ as if only people with paper mill degrees can thin.

    As many degrees and multiple languages as I am blessed with, I never attribute any insights I have into reality to any of it, so that makes me not the least impressed with any of their bullshit…as am sure neither are the europeans.

    Until they dismantle the structures and institutions of racism, wealth denial, segregation and violation of human rights that they ALL, each and every black government in the Caribbean, each and every Spanish, Portuguese descended government of Latin America kept in place to continue the vile practices and deny the descendants of African slaves their human rights and entitlements to wealth, none of what any of them post convinces me that they should receive a goddamn dime off the backs of brutalized African slaves, a brutality that lasted 400 years…not one frigging dime should go to any of them…

    I have always been convinced that money is an insulting form of reparations…and these greedy lowlifes are pursuing it with everything they got.

  6. The article keeps stressing about all these ‘scholars’ as if only people with paper mill degrees can THINK.

  7. Do we have a strong legal claim for reparation in the form of financial compensation? Should we be spending our money and resources on pursuing a legal claim – if the legal claim is a long shot? Perhaps, we would be better off spending our money and resources on, e.g. road repairs or new buses.

    The cases where financial compensation was paid to the Jews or Kenyans do not legally support the claim for reparation – because the facts in each case are different, e.g. in the Kenyan case, the legal claim was pursued by the survivors of the atrocities in a British court.

    Further information about the Kenyan case is available at:

  8. There is room to demand reparations, but not to put any money in these shit for leaders hands.

  9. “It only goes to show you what is meant when it is said “the devil also knows how to quote scriptures.”

    AND read verse…… Piece.

  10. But the question remains unanswered as to why we are wasting our money and resources pursuing a legal claim that we are very unlikely to win.

  11. But the black lady was not sitting in a court of law. If you think that we have a strong legal claim – please tell me why.

    • Has nothing to do with sitting in a court. We have been through all the different permutations of the argument and to state the obvious, you are entitled to your opinion. Bear in mind that when a cause is just acting out the outrage is a reparation act. It must be done so that the fight for reparations appears next to that blot in the history book.

  12. @ Tony Trotman

    It depends on what you see as winning”

    On the one side the fight to have whitey provide reparations to us niggers (dem got a Robert heah who tink dat word is offensive) is often considered a pipe dream

    De ole man however looks at in in the light of “Reembrance” or ore specifically as The Lest We Should Ever Effing Forget testimony

    How many of us niggers understand what being chattel is? Or 2 fifths of a man? Or ethnic cleaning? Or can recite and of the copious records of the ignominy of slavery?

    How many know of the psychological warfare massa waged pun we niggers insisting dat we breed the female slaves so that he got more stock on his plantation?

    How many understand how massah was central in creating the psyche of the irresponsible nigger village RAMs who, now, when we continue to breed we women irresponsibly, the same massah does get we lock up for cock tax?

    De ole man ent educated in the mechanics of institutionalized disenfranchisement dat slavery has perpetuated across the globe sir so I can’t speak of things like how massa give de bajan niggers barren beach front land as part of the bajan equivalent of 40 acres and a mule nor how massah even at today raping we niggers and reclaiming said beachfront property in his reverse colonialism and apartheid recolonization

    Nor can de ole man speak to how the 30 pieces of silver paid to Hilary Beckles worked to silence a once resilient footsoldier in the struggle.

    No sir so I tink dat at least said Reparations MAY serve a purpose of airing some of the on going instances of slavery Lest We Should Forget

    Whu you tink…?

  13. Reparations must be addressed, the discussions and demands are long overdue, but it does not feel right nor is it fair, that those who have not fought sufficiently to dismantle the structures of racism and greed that were the driving forces behind the African Slave Trade, the same ones who today still collude with and enable whites and others particularly in black majority countrues to keep the corrupt racist systems in place and use them as weapons to enrich themselves….should not be the same hypocrites now trying to receive raparations in monetary form in their hands…on behalf of the same black people…that they all still disenfranchise.

    There are other forms of reparations, much more profound, meaningful and longer lasting, that does not require putting money in the hands of these known corrupt thieves.

  14. Reparations WILL be addressed.
    Spiritual equations must balance.
    However shiite money can NEVER address the wrongs that will need to be righted.

    As Bob Marley said:
    “We nah know how we and dem ah go work it out….
    But someone will have to pay for the innocent blood…”

  15. SNL I will take ape ..tits for 500 Alex thats appetite Sean they are not going to get any money if they saved up the money spent on themselves for these meetings they would be better off . The brits are paying for a wedding things are tight.

  16. I was stunned to see a birth certificate recently from the 1950s as I mentioned before, of a black Caribbean person born in an old French built Fort handed over to the British after they won some 7 year war I think it was, from the French in the Caribbean around 1783.

    After doing research and seeing photos of the Fort, yes, the brits got a lot of reparations to work out, they even had the nerve to name the hospital in the old battle Fort Colony Hospital….plain as day on the birth certificate.

    So these fly by night frauds in the Caribbean and Latin American have no right seeking any monetary compensation on behalf of any African descendant anywhere…without their input…who the hell gave any of them permission to talk on behalf of black people anyway, I sure did not.

  17. They Came as Slaves: Human Cargo Transported on British Ships Bound for the Americas.

    They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.

    Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. Some were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

    We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade….

    But are we talking About African Slavery?

    It is well to remember that Slavery in any shape form or colour whether from Ireland, Scotland and England or Africa is Anti-Christ, for where the Spirit of the lord is there is Liberty … 2 Corinthians 3: 17 and the opposite is Tyranny, Bondage and Slavery.


  18. Lawson…they should not get any money, it is a matter of principle and they are going about it all wrong, I can already see the fall out from monetary compensation, with all the greedy, bloated pigs up front and involved..

    ..particularly since there are 1000 other and much better ways of getting reaparations for the descendants of slaves ….sin paper money.

    I dont hear any of them holding clinics or townhall meetings to discuss WITH THE DESCENDANTS OF SLAVES…what reparations from europe entails.

    All I am hearing is how scholastic they all are, which does not impress me in the least, cause no one gives a shit.

  19. @ David
    It is more complex that that.

    One does not demand monetary ‘reparations’ from tyrants who raped, tortured and murdered your parents and fore-parents.
    That would be an insult to their memories, and to the trials and tribulations that they would have endured to bring you into being.

    One DEMANDS justice…
    And one takes PAINS to make their dreadful sacrifices WORTH IT ALL …. by the QUALITY of life that they choose to live, and by the POSITIVE IMPACT that they make on this shiite world…. like the true KINGS and QUEENS that is their lineage.

    The MOST insulting approach would be to ask for money (ANY AMOUNT) in compensation……

  20. The Bigger Picture that Most Refuse to See

    We continue to Experience Serfdom and Oppression in our Modern Day Existence

    What most do not realize is that Serfdom still exist today in the guise of Socialism and Prospers Worldwide and we that are on the Isles of the sea are not exempt. The same Philosophy that wants the Statue of Admiral Nelson removed which was paid for by Public Subscription, gave us the Emancipation Statue while putting us in ECONOMIC SLAVERY. EXCESS TAXATION IS THEFT…

    Isn’t it Ironic that you want to take down the Statue that Barbadians felt was reminiscent of the one who Saved them but Celebrate the Emancipation Statue paid for by Government and they are the ones who are Taxing Barbadians into Slavery. People received their Freedom as it was Heralded as something Great they even Erected Statues to Celebrate Emancipation paid for by the Government, and then they proceed to make us Serfs. We have thrown off the Colonial Masters and now we have another one, Government, and they are Celebrating Freedom with us while making us Slaves to the State!…That is the Ultimate Deception!!

    Do we not understand that the Ideology of Socialism is a Godless conspiracy bent on divisiveness and destruction? Under the Banner of Socialism we are all Serfs, understand that the plan is” CONTROL”. Socialism is a slow process of Rot, while promising everything and delivering nothing!!

    They say One Thing but Act Contrary to Reality and want us to Believe the Lie that they are Caring and Benevolent.

  21. The legal claim for reparation will be made in a court of law and not in a court of morals. My opinion is not “written in stone”. And my opinion can be changed – if someone persuades me that we have a strong legal claim for reparation

    • It will be made in Court because this is the formal structure society affords if suasion has failed.

  22. @ Freedom Crier May 18, 2018 7:01 AM

    You need to go a bit further an explain why these same “white slaves” joined with their masters and slaughtered the Native Americans?

    Why did these ‘freed whites ruthlessly kill off the bison in order to deprive the same indigenous people of their lands so proudly occupied today by the descendants of these same white slaves?

    Aren’t the descendants of the same white immigrants today some of the most racist xenophobes like Trump as reflected in the immigration policies of the modern USA which are totally in opposition to the welcoming expectations expressed in the poem of the American Dream so well portrayed in that plaque on Ellis Island?

    Is it because the Native Americans refused to submit to your cultural penetration by portraying God as an effeminate white man?

    Did those manumitted white slaves find great difficulty in controlling the free and brave “wild Indians” compared to the easy way you were able to trick and enslave (still up to today) the stupid blacks by giving them your white religion as an opiate ( like your crystal meth)?

    Was this a deliberate ploy along with your processed fast foods containing hormones to turn black men into chubby zombies singing like lifetime jailbirds and black women into steatopygic objects of derision and poor health to make the undertaker’s business high up on the list of the Fortune 500 as a profitable venture for ‘Life’?

  23. As far as I am concerned, UK and Europe owes the descendants of AFRICAN slaves….500 years.

    Civilizations rise and fall in less time..

    If the greedy, with trillion $$$$$$$$ signs now dancing before their eyes would look at the right for reparations in terms of 5 centuries lost to over 16 or more generations of people of African descent, instead of looking at it in terms of paper to be paid….they would better understand what is required in payment of reparations.

  24. What ever the rights and wrongs of reparations, doesn’t Venezuela have more immediate problems to deal with?

  25. And it’s more like over 20 generations of lost time for the descendants of African slaves due to the brutal actions of UK and Europe, because their evil practices over the period of OVER 500 years, still have present day repercussions both mental and physical, even to this day, in the Black race throughout the Caribbean and the West in particular..

  26. I suspect that suasion will fail – because the British Government (BG) has already said “no” to reparations: see

    The position of the BG has not changed. And no other political party in Britain has said that it would pay reparations to the Caribbean.

  27. @ Tony Trotman May 18, 2018 10:04 AM

    The same British government has to explain why the slave owners were so handsomely compensated for the ‘loss of their black properties.

    Why not the victims the other side of the equation of this heinous business just like the victims of similar holocausts of ‘biblical’ proportions.

    You need to explain that, T T!

  28. The Windrush was an all out scam by the 1948 UK government to get labor from the Caribbean at any cost to rebuild the bombed out London city, they should get sued for violating the rights of the Windward generation under the December 1948 declaration of UN Human Rights, that they knew existed because e they also signed on to that treaty, but ignored it anyway for their greed and racist selfishness, hence the reason the teresa brasier government rushed off to right that wrong…before they got a class action lawsuit.

    they are even returning people to UK they deported to the islands or refused entry when they returned to UK from vacation…and they have to repay every penny they stole from those Caribbean born people who worked in UK for up to 60 years…it was an all out theft of people’s pensions, homes, social security and other benefits by the home office.

    the evil viciousness of the UK governments..all of them, refusing to recognize that people born in the Caribbean under british rule, before any of the Caribbean islands were independent ARE automatically british citizens…that is going to haunt them until that generation dies out.

    And the pretend “scholars” from this reparations movement cannot even see the upper hand and bargaining chip that British fraud from the Windrush and those still alive in the Caribbean born under british rule gave them, too busy staring at $$$$$$$.

  29. @millerthenunnaki

    I think that I have already provided the explanation that you seek, e.g. in my previous messages I said that:

    “The legal claim for reparation will be made in a court of law and not in a court of morals.” and

    “The cases where financial compensation was paid to the Jews or Kenyans do not legally support the claim for reparation – because the facts in each case are different, e.g. in the Kenyan case, the legal claim was pursued by the survivors of the atrocities in a British court.”


    But the British Government has acknowledged the suffering of the Windrush victims and it is setting up a “bespoke compensation scheme” for those victims. See

    • Isn’t this the point? What is common to both, a wrong. The difference: the Windrsh matter can be contained financially.

  30. Have you not seen the Ads on Ancestry how much of you living in Barbados

    Do you think are from a Part in Africa and How much of you do you think are from a Part in Ireland?

    When we stand before God are you going to tell him to remove the parts that are in you from Ireland and only leave the parts that are in you from Africa? Everyone in Barbados whether they think they are white or whether they think they are Black have other Races in them.

    So do you believe that you are who you Identify with for example if you are a man and want to identify as a woman are you then a woman? What Race was Adam? These are the Better Questions not what was stated. When you pray at night who do you pray to, what are the First few words that the Lord’s Prayer has given as a pattern to follow? What does that teach us?

    And even if you believe in Evolution don’t they teach that we came from a common ancestor somewhere back then in the midst of Africa. Does that not make us all Africans? We have lived so long under false Ideologie(S) that sometimes we believe things that we shouldn’t and even when I tell you to stand over the Fray and See what is really happening the Deception of Satan in our lives in Each of our lives is Great. You must remember the Scriptures that says…

    Ephesians 6:12King James Version (KJV)

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. The Adversary is the Great Accuser and Divider and nowadays Racism is his Fondest Tool.

    We are cautioned in the Scriptures, Isaiah 58: 9…Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

    Just like the Scripture I mentioned from Isaiah that we should remove the pointed finger, we All want Other People to Change and are Quick to Point out how Bad they are, but the Scriptures does not teach that. The Scriptures teach that we ourselves have to Change. Salvation is for the Individual, the Change must come by each individual Repenting and those who understand this Gospel Principle will be a light to their people. We look backward at History to learn lessons that is why the Scriptures are Priceless. Remember, Jesus is our Savior not our Condemner.

    Believe and Understand that it is written “Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?” Why should we support the Spirit of Divisiveness?

    “You May Choose To Look The Other Way But You Can Never Say Again That You Did Not Know.”
    ― William Wilberforce

    Britain was the first major power to abolish slavery in all of its colonies because of the Tireless Persistence’s William Wilberforce!

  31. They had to expedite the Windrush fraud perpetrated on those Caribbean born people because the exposure was too great, sudden and far reaching…and still has the potential to open an even bigger can of worms and worry for UK.

  32. @ Tony Trotman May 18, 2018 11:52 AM
    “The legal claim for reparation will be made in a court of law and not in a court of morals.”

    The decision to compensate the slave owners was not made in a court of law but in the British parliament. But we can agree that Parliament is/was the highest court of the British realm.

    It could also be argued that Morality is the highest law of mankind.

    “Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.” ~Chinese Proverb

  33. The Great Laws are the Commandments the Greatest of those is to Love God with all our hearts and minds and to Love others as we do our selves, upon these are all other Laws predicated.

    This is not Black versus White, or Left versus Right or Jew versus Palestinian, this is a Good versus Evil, Freedom versus Tyranny and the culprit from the beginning of time has always been the Adversary. We have our eyes so clinched where they want us to in stirring up racism that we are forgetting the others that suffer Great Atrocities right now in real time, being slaughtered by the thousands. After the WWII genocide, we kept saying “never again”. But since then there has been Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and the Christians Middle Eastern territories. Even Saddam, as horrid as he was, never performed such atrocities. Are they less worthy of our outcries???

    A Rose by another name will still smells as sweet in much the same way Slavery to a Slave is STILL SLAVERY!

    The Chiefs in Africa used to war with each other and would sell their Captives to European Traders to get them out of the Country so they would not have to fight them again.

    The Europeans engaged in the Slave trade as TRADERS they did not go into Africa and Conquer and capture Slaves.

    Have you heard about modern day Slavery in Africa? What do you call when Muslim Extremist in Africa raid villages and capture children and make them solders to fight their cause?

    Have you read of Boca Harran taking young women from their tribes and selling them as SEX SLAVES…Is that a different kind of Slavery??

    This is Satan’s game, he was a liar from the beginning of time…The Adversary plans to destroy Liberty and Freedom-Economic, Political, and Religious, and set in place thereof the greatest, most widespread, and complete Tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods and he has been at it since the beginning of time.

    We have to recognize the Culprit and Rise above the Tide including those who uphold his ideology of Divisiveness! …The Adversary was a liar from the Beginning of time, and this is Evils Game, Always was and Still Is. Racism is one of his most deceptive tools. Do Not Allow the Race Game to reign on your parade; you are far too valuable to fall pray of its Snares… Just the thoughts from a person whose Ancestors were Slaves on Both sides of their lineage.

  34. If schooling can be compared to the effects of fire on the human body,, WW yours would be a first degree burn

  35. @millerthenunnaki

    I can only repeat that “The legal claim for reparation will be made in a court of law and not in a court of morals.”

    I am hearing moral arguments but not any legal arguments – so I’ll leave it there.

    Have a good weekend.

  36. Lawson…damn straight…we got too many degreed idiots with no commonsense all cursed with $$$$$$$

    No wonder the brits and everyone else are always tricking the dummies.

  37. Ya can repeat till ya drop dead, when it’s time for a reckoning….even law courts have to adhere.

    “I am hearing moral arguments but not any legal arguments – so I’ll leave it there.”

    Now what legal arguments can be proffered by the descendants of black slaves in the British West Indies in a British court of law to support a claim for victim compensation aka reparations?

    So let us compile a list of the alleged crimes committed by those who benefited from slave business. What about the following:

    Abduction/kidnapping/human trafficking
    Transporting people against their will
    Forced labour
    Physical violence and brutality
    Rape of women and children

    Murder including the death of the thousands thrown overboard to feed the smiling sharks.

    Now do you want the list to become exhaustive?

  39. Miller……the beast in buckingham palace said all of that was legal…

    Tony Trotman will tell ya all of that was only immoral…..but start doing it to him and them and they will all immediately call it criminal ..

    None of them, from the beasts in buckingham palace, the first demons, to henry the 8th demon, to the present dying beast in buckingham palace to their house negros …..gets to decide when and if slavery was legal or criminal….it was a crime against humanity from start to Windrush…there is no start date and end date on crimes against humanity because some white rat says so.

  40. @ The Sage Annunaki

    Your post of 2.18 pm was a gut searcher…

    I doubt that Tony Trotman is going to respond to you for at least 10 posts when he or the other one going hope that your response is hiddent in the melee

  41. Anyone who thinks that such decisions are best assigned to the realm of the Law court is condemned to hopelessness.
    Such thinking would have seen the African Slave Trade still going strong; Apartheid still in place; and women still without a vote.

    The law courts simply REFLECT the current reality of society – with all its warts…. as ours so clearly do.

    Unless we are guided /driven by something MORE PERFECT, we would never be able to rise above our endemic brass bowlery, imperfections, and human flaws.

    Moral laws reflect an inherent, almost instinctive, appreciation of what is fair, reasonable and right, but even that is tainted by human imperfections and cultural differences.

    In the final analysis, only a superior, supernatural, all-knowing entity can claim the right to have established the ultimate ‘Laws’..
    …and wisdom would dictate that such Law become paramount in our thinking…. if BBs had wisdom….

  42. They will do anything to deny Caribbean people their human rights…you cannot buy human rights with $$$$$$$.

    “Labour MP David Lammy has accused the government of “outrageous” insensitivity after a vulnerable Windrush citizen was arrested for an alleged criminal offence 20 years ago after a Home Office meeting.

    The 62-year-old man, who has asked to remain anonymous, came to the UK from Jamaica in 1976. He was arrested earlier this week when he went to get his biometric card at Lunar House, the Home Office visas and immigration headquarters. The father-of-three has been remanded in custody at HM Pentonville in London on a charge of handling stolen goods two decades ago, which he denies.

    The Tottenham MP criticised the government for arresting the man after telling Windrush citizens to come forward. He said charges were brought just days after the Home Office asked to attend the politician’s Windrush surgery in which they spoke to the constituent who was later arrested.

    “This is outrageous. This man is the face of the ‘hostile environment’. Home Office officials requested to attend my constituency surgery last week to help people get their citizenship. The head of the Commonwealth taskforce asked me for advice on their ‘outreach strategy’, fully recognising the fact that people are too afraid to contact the Home Office,” Lammy said.”

  43. All the demon minions popping up on the blog trying to justify crimes against humanity….they and their progeny will suffer 70 times more.

    Karma is swift and very precise in these times.

  44. Outright lies have always been a stock in trade for racists like these two clowns…they heartless ability in creating fantasies and networks of lies live on , and always will, until they are all chased out of the societies, like has started in the US…and ultimately chased off the earth.

    The Caribbean needs to stop allowing these europeans into the islands, limit severely how many of them actually get to live among the black populations and lock them up when they practice racism and commit their usual crimes of car theft rackets out of europe, drug dealing, gunrunning, money laundering corruption with local governments/their ministers/politicians and fraud.

    Start putting a stop to them from polluting the islands, as they have for the last 52 years.

    Only after all these things are done, including educating the descendants of African slaves in the Caribbean and Latin Americas of their RIGHTS TO REPARATIONS from the criminals in europe….only then can they move forward.

  45. Give these racists and minions ALL exactly what they DONT WANT…a complete end to ALL european and north american criminal activities in the Caribbean, because they all work together…..and will engage each other to continue criminals activities against Caribbean people in the islands.

    ….that is only if these pretend scholars and pretend governments, pretending to represent the descendants of African slaves are really serious about righting the wrong of crimes against humanity perpetrated by Europe against African people AND their descendants fir over 500 years and are not only reacting to $$$$$$$$$$ signs dancing around in their light heads.

  46. When you do not Know History you are Doomed to repeat it. Unfortunately they are those who busy themselves erasing and changing History to suit their Narrative… Can’t you not see that you are being played by the likes of Commie Sing Song dangling the political carrot of Reparations before your face to buy into his Socialist Ploy pretending to be caring while robing Peter to pay Paul…

  47. I know that will be a challenge for the greedy corrupt, licorish and bloated pretend leader/scholars and governments whose names are already synonymous with and connected to corruption with white europeans and north americas….who are already calling their names to european authorities and interpol…as happened recently to Asot Michael in Antigua, already happened to Gonsalves of St. Vincent…and quite a few other Carobbean leaders who already have that stain…….let’s see.

  48. Time to weed out all racists out of Barbados and the Caribbean, get rid of the scam used against black Caribbean people postslavery…..brown people in US understand what has to be done and are doing it.

  49. The Infamous Connaught or Hell Proclamation
    Was issued on 1 May 1654

    On 14 August 1652, Cromwell began his Ethnic Cleansing of Ireland, ordering that the Irish were to be transported overseas, starting with 12,000 Irish prisoners sold to Barbados. The infamous Connaught or Hell proclamation was issued on 1 May 1654, where all Irish were ordered to be removed from their lands and relocated west of the Shannon or be transported to the West Indies. Those who have been to County Clare, a land of barren rock will understand what an impossible position such an order placed the Irish.

    “The previously untold story of over 50,000 Irish men, women and children who were transported to Barbados and Virginia. Sean O’Callaghan for the first time documents the history of these people: their transportation, the conditions in which they lived on plantations as slaves or servants, and their rebellions in Barbados. “An illuminating insight into a neglected episode in Irish history, but its significance is much broader than that. Its main achievement is to situate the story of colonialism in Ireland in the much larger context of worldwide European imperialism. O’Callaghan’s description of seventeenth century Barbados is a powerful portrait of a society as brutal, corrupt and unjust as anything the twentieth century has to offer. Yet it is precisely societies like colonial Barbados and Virginia which lie at the root of our modern world. That is why To Hell or Barbados is such a valuable book.”–Irish World

    The Lyrics in this song says…
    To Hell or Barbados, To Hell or Barbados
    To Hell on Barbados we were sent

    It’s a Heaven on this Earth
    A Creator’s work of art
    And the sun sets o’er the sea so divine


    All of all your evil deeds, many still condone
    But your crime of slavery goes unknown
    Good men like old Wilberforce, they came far too late
    Far too late to save us from the fate
    I loved the Song “To Hell or Barbados We Were Sent”; it brought tears to my eyes, chills to my bones and a whole new sense of appreciation to be a Bajan and for the Courage and Fortitude of the Ancestors that runs through our Veins!

    When Black people understand they do not have to be racist white people’s bitches, slaves or house negros and teach their children the same, then they will see a change in their mentalities…and an even bigger change in their lives and futures.

    racist foreign or local whites , Indians, syrians etc are nothing but cucharachas and parasites, get them out of your lives. ..

    Due to the hidden/suppressed real history of the African slave trade, I have to point out the fact that Black Africans did, and STILL do sell Africans into slavery, and yes I said “still do”. If telling the Truth of this fact labels me a racist in someones eye, so be it, your opinion of me doesn’t change Truth or the fact that Africans in our land have been using a propagandize history of slavery to promote that slavery occurred only because the European snatched them from their homeland.

    The Truth is the Blacks in power in Africa sold their own people into slavery. Europeans saw the opportunity and they are used that to their advantage, but no white man went in the bush to grab slaves, black people did it for them and did so to make money off of the slave trade which occurred way before any blacks were brought to the Americas as slaves. So the American slave trade was not the first time Black people have been enslaved, nor was it the longest.

    Yes, their own people as in Black slave masters offering up their people for $$$ and weapons, and they did this long before any slave ships came here to our land the Americas, from their homeland Africa.

    Africa has a long history of selling slaves, and as far as the Americas Africa was still willing to sell its people as slaves up until the 1800’s when it was banned from doing so by laws created to stop the sale of Black African slaves in many countries.


  52. It is a fact that slavery was legal. It is also a fact that any “legal claim for reparation will be made in a court of law and not in a court of morals.”

    I am not justifying slavery or its evils. The first question in my first message was “Do we have a strong legal claim for reparation in the form of financial compensation?”

    If anyone thinks that we have a strong legal claim – please tell me why.

  53. @ Tony Trotman May 19, 2018 8:43 AM

    The atrocities committed against the Jews by Hitler’s Third Reich were also sanctioned by the German Bundestag which made those acts “Legal”.

    “The Price Has Been Paid”

    According to you 620,000 ‘good white’ souls lost their precious lives fighting for the freedom of black slaves. How many lost their lives fighting for the freedom of black slaves in the Barbados and the rest of the English-speaking Caribbean?

    So the debt of slavery has been paid in full? Is that it, then?

    So what about the millions who lost their lives on the killing fields of western Europe trying to free the Jews from Hitler’s gas chambers and further extermination?

    Shouldn’t that have been the final payment instead of the millions in monetary compensation the German people had to fork out?

  55. No one needs to tell you anything or explain anything, all the information is available on points of law dealing with reparations, I posted them on here some time ago, do some research…even the lawyers who have already been hired to look at reparations for the descendants of Caribbean slaves have put information out there for everyone to understand the scenarios that will make such a class action lawsuit doable..

    My only concerns are putting money in Caribbean leaders and now Latin American leader’s hands who are now pretending to care so much for the same descendants of African slaves whom they have all been disenfranchising for the last 60 years in favor of the same europeans whom they are seeking reparations from…

    .the pretend scholars should be able to see the irony, but obviously dont.

    Couldn’t agree more!

    Reparations -equivalent in value (reflecting current prices) to what was given as compensation to the slave owners- can be made but not as monetary payouts to any individual government; for we know exactly where that ‘cash’ money will end up.

    Why not create education and training scholarships for the descendants of those who suffered from the brutal effects of slavery?

    Aren’t the same descendants today being deprived of opportunities at the UWI because of the fiscal policies of a black Bajan government?

    Why can’t the British government fill that funding void (including the economic costs for the same black students)?

    How about providing opportunities for black students to pursue studies and training programmes in the UK and which cannot be provided by the local educational/training institutions but are relevant and in some cases needed by developing countries like Barbados and Jamaica whose black populations suffered the brunt of slavery under the British?

  57. Exactly Millier….these black Caribbean and latin governments along with the pretend scholars in the reparations movement cannot see nor appreciate the irony of their $$$$$$$ dancing actions.

    There are thousands of better ways, longer lasting ways, healthier ways to DEMAND reparations for descendants of African slaves from Europe and UK, without asking for one dollar.

  58. @ Well WellNad Miller

    He Alone paid the Ultimate Price one Day we will All Stand before him to answer for our Thoughts Words and Deeds done in the flesh…None will escape only on Condition of Repentance can we be avoid the Grasp of Justice because of his Mercy.

    He has said Vengeance is mine, of you it is required to forgive all men. So what about leaving the Retribution to him instead of Spouting Hate, Greed, and Divisiveness, this is exactly what this Subject of Reparations does. Why not teach Independence and thrift and developing your Talents and Abilities as was taught in the Parable of the Talents which is the Spirit of Entrepreneurship.

    Who in your family in your family either your Mother, your Father your Grand Mother or your Grand Father have suffered at the hands of these Slave owners or has the mistreatment of people magically pass through the genes to you? Name one race that you think that has not suffered? Even when one race is not killing another race have we not All suffered in this life? Don’t we all Experience Adversity? There is not a man alive that has not experienced adversity. Shall we go back in our own lives and Blame God for the Adversity that we have been afflicted with for surely he is the Creator of the world and surely he is our Creator.

    Do you not remember your mother spanking you? Do you not remember her forcing you to drink something you did not want to drink (castor oil) and would we now to go back and beat our mothers for the beating we had received for the forced drinking of unpleasant things? Are you still a Child? When you were a child you thought as a child now you are an adult think like one. Put away your childish thoughts. Everything around us teaches us aren’t you still learning every day?

    If a man offend you today what is your redress? If a man offended your Great Great Grand Father is it for you to seek Redress? Are these thoughts of Reparations yours or has somebody explained to you that this is what should happen? Is all of this Vengeance that Swells inside of you coming from you? Is this who you are? Is this who you want to be?

    I suggest to Well Well and Miller and all those Bajan’s who going down the Reparation Road who feel they are from Africa to have your Ancestry Evaluated…And then make an appointment with your Surgeon to cut out the Parts of you that you have been describing attributed to those who you deem Offensive and Racist!

  59. @ THe Sage Anunnaki

    You said and I quote “…Why can’t the British government fill that funding void (including the economic costs for the same black students)?

    How about providing opportunities for black students to pursue studies and training programmes in the UK and …”

    Because there is the remote possibility that the recipients of such relevant training might, over the course of the in kind repatriation, enfranchise themselves and attain a level of self sufficiency that translates into the empowerment of the collective.

    Suppose for example a few of said students were to pursue the discipline of Artificial Intelligence or Robotics and say they were to arrive at the coding which achieved de facto superlative AI or perchance to create such robotics expertise to create an exoskeleton that would solve osteoporosis related maladies….

    You would appreciate the nature of the conundrum that would present to the British would you not?

    Such would in fact approximate the fear that the britishers have now when Harry and Megan will have children and one strikes back to a nigger like you and me oh Anunnaki

    And you dun know what happened to Princess Diana when it was found that she was pregnant with Dodi Fayed’s child and that such presented the challenge of having a potential heir to the British throne half Egyptian.

    Reparations, while they are due, irrespective of the format, WILL NEVER BE GRANTED, because that would first mean apologies to us enslaved niggers and secondly, the possibility, however remote, that it might leapfrog us niggers economically or technologically and we cant have no uppity niggers EVER DO THAT EN MASSE

  60. @ Well Well

    De ole man disagrees with al sharpton and his misplaced statement about white supremacy ending because of this marriage.

    This union has been tolerated SOLELY BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY SUSPECT TO (a) have Harry die in suspicious circumstances (b) have Megan die in suspicious circumstances and leave Harry alive or (c) have both of them die.

    You need to know the nature of the white man and what makes him tick to understand how he tolerates specific things…and will “kill it befo’ it grow” a la Martin Luther King or Malcolm X

  61. Piece….Sharpton is in the mix and knows all the recent reactions of calling police on black people in the US is a definite sign of their control over white supremacy slipping away, he knows them very well, in US, it is being dealt with, the perpetrators of white racism exposed, losing their jobs, businesses and homes, being brought to their knees..etc…. in UK, not so much.

    It will take a plague to weaken racism and white supremacy in UK and Europe, which is quite possible, it has happened before and culled millions across Europe….although the government is pretending to do something about the far right hate groups, even going so far as to lock up the most rabid and criminal members of those groups and label them terrorists……

    …but that is not enough, the problem goes deeper, it’s the established racism and false sense of superiority that stinks up the whole establishment from buckingham palace back down, that has been embedded in the society for over 500 years, that is the toxic pit right there…a bigger challenge to dismantle and destroy.

  62. In the meantime, it’s Barbados and other Caribbean governments need to dismantle and destroy the nasty toxic shit that is racism that they all allow a very tiny minority of white and other criminals to practice on the majority black populations..

    ..I won’t worry about US, UK, or Canada, they are white majority countries and will fall in line eventually when enough pressure is applied through human rights organizations…they know how to adapt when it is in their best interests, they never miss a beat..

    It is in the Caribbean that racism, segregation/apartheid and white supremacy should never be practiced but is allowed by black governments, kept alive by the same governments now pretending they are representing the same black victims of racism to get reparations for the Atlantic slave trade perpetrated against their ancestors..

    And it is well known that black governments mislead their own black people deliberately and never like to adapt to positive changes that will benefit the people, so I think the focus should be on these black governments who are unfocused and all over the place,

    ..the more I post about that the more stupid they all

  63. Piece..besides, they all knew Harry was a wild card and it is better to appease him as opposed to pissing him off, he is the only real one among that gang of fakes and frauds so far…..I would love nothing more than to get into his head for a few hours, just to confirm.

  64. WW and sharpton are right, the world is changing shown by the closeness of this royal couple and their little exchanges. lip readers watching Harry during the ceremony think what he said was gimma some of dat.

  65. There is no doubt about it, the nest of the beasts has been turned on its criminal head….the UK can feel the changes that are in store….they have had a very, very long run, over 500 years is no joke.


    “In the words of one of the ecstatic crowd of 50,000 “fans” around Windsor Castle, Britain has its “first royal of colour”. More than that, Meghan has the making of becoming a truly stellar figure and the last component of the “Fab Four” to be cemented into place. We will be hearing even more about the Sussexes and the Cambridges from now on, with Harry and Meghan on a special mission to make the Commonwealth a bit more relevant and cool. Depending on where you stand on the question of the monarchy, that is the either very bad or very good news.”

  66. Lawson…he didn’t marry Rihanna, but he did marry someone one even more in tune with what he obviously thinks should be a more diverse set up than what obtains now, particularly since the beast has no more than 10 years tops to continue haunting the country and the world, until it’s forced off the earth….permanently.

    Meghan bucks the fraud monarchy every opportunity she gets and all the fakeness that is its reality, even before yesterday.

  67. Sure she does, wearing queen mary’s tiarra, lol and your right again she will be bucking the monarchy ….its their wedding night

  68. Lawson…were you given a free tiara stolen from who knows who…you would wear it too…no matter how many of us called you an old queen…or a beast….no matter the insults ya, will be all over Toronto preening like a real old queen, something like how Elton John looks

  69. At this time, decolonizing the minds of Black Caribbean people is much more important than anything else, Barbados’ population is in a particularly bad state since the same apartheid model used to destroy the minds of the black majority in South Africa, was copied and used in Barbados and is still in existence today, still managing to destroy the minds of blacks.

    Apartheid and segregation was destructive fir centuties to black Siuth Africans and it is still destructive today to Caribbean people..get all racists out of the Caribbean, chase them all out..

    ‘Decolonize the Mind’: Black South Africans Are Figuring Out How to Heal From the Mental Damage of Apartheid

    Students cheer as the Cecil Rhodes statue is being removed from the University of Cape Town on April 9, 2015, in South Africa.

    Black South Africans have been fighting for their right to live with dignity since before the time of King Shaka Zulu.

    Millions are still trying to heal from the brutality of an institutionally racist system that placed them in the lowest social status—below the “coloreds,” who were below white people.

    Now black South Africans have been hit with a revelation that has compelled some to fight even harder to throw off the cloak of race-based oppression.

    Last month a documentary about the life of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was broadcast in South Africa. The film, called Winnie, is uncomfortable to watch because of the truths it reveals. One of the most chilling moments of the film is when a white South African former intelligence agent named Vic McPherson admits during a sit-down interview that the government had embarked on psychological warfare against black people.

    “It was 1989, I was still with the intelligence section and President P.W. Botha said we must come up with a psychological warfare strategy against the enemy. Everything was coordinated between the Defense Force, National Intelligence and Foreign Affairs. It was called covert strategic communication—Stratcom,” McPherson said in the documentary.

    The “enemy” that McPherson referred to was clear—anti-apartheid activists, especially the more left-winged ones like Madikizela-Mandela. McPherson revealed just how far the white-minority-led South African government went to maintain institutionalized racism.

    They went “psychological.” They went into the minds of black people.

    Part of the government’s plan included using a network of 40 journalists to publish negative reports about Madikizela-Mandela in major news outlets and dividing the allegiances of black people to their black leaders, sparking deadly divisions within the black community.

    This high-level confession confirms suspicions that many black South Africans already had. And it has sparked a national conversation that can be followed right now on South Africa’s social media spaces with the hashtags #WinnieDoccie and #IAmWinnie, which feature posts of black women wearing all black, in colorful head wraps and punching their fists in the air in a Black Power salute.

    The film’s revelations have led to discussions about what it would take for the minds of black South Africans to truly be healed from whatever mental damage apartheid did.

    “The apartheid project was a project that made white supremacy so much part of where you lived, where you went to school, what kind of work you were allowed to do, what kind … of education you had, whether you had access to health care, if you had a house, what kind of education your children could reach and who you thought you were in the world, whether you thought you were worthwhile or not,” white South African scholar Emma Arogundade told The Root. “So it was a project that happened on a physical scale but also on a very spiritual and psychological scale and was enacted with a lot of violence.”

    Students, scholars and community organizers are rising up to defy a status quo in the educational system that maintains remnants of institutional racism. Activists in South Africa are using the phrase “decolonize the mind” more frequently, inspired by the celebrated Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong’o, whose 1986 essay, “Decolonising the Mind,” sparked a deeper advocacy for promoting African languages in literature and political spaces. The Decolonize the Mind campaign was the center of talks at a public event held in April in Cape Town.”

    As usual leftist accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of.

    WC you want no part of Apartheid but is advocating the chasing out the racist from the Caribbean. In your mind Apartheid is bad but still you want to Separate Blacks from Whites and from your previous post you have accused all other Races in Barbados as being Racist.

    Exactly what are you advocating? It seems clearly that you are advocating an extreme form of Apartheid and have pronounced it good. Your mind is so confused that you cannot see that there is good and bad in all races. To give an example of a country that records statistics they are more black on black crimes in America than any other race crime. There are more Muslim killing Muslims of the same race wherever they are. They are still Tribal Conflicts in Africa and they are separated by Tribe. So explain to me again exactly what you mean by Apartheid.

    I believe in the Constitution of Barbados that gives me the right to associate with who I want and not by some Autocrat like you telling me who I am allowed to associate with based on your Criteria. Your world is a dismal world, full of dictates from you having no conception of what real Freedom is.

    WC you have advocated moving away Apartheid as you say presently exist and in its place institute a more virulent form of Apartheid.

    I have once read of an Anti- Apartheid Activist who fled South Africa for New York and was in the company of many white people and was berated for being with so many whites and he told them I did not flee Apartheid to practice Voluntary Apartheid.

    WC you Shout as it were Righteous but Spew Hatred Careful the Master You Serve.

    No wonder it is written, “Judge Not Least Ye Be Judged”.

  71. LOL WW why do think so little of your brethren, that you are so smart and they are so stupid, isn’t that the mentality that caused clitory to lose. Wake up…. people make decisions that are best for them and their circumstance and if it doesn’t align with your ideas it does not make them stupid it makes them practical. Your are right about harry marrying outside his race but how the hell do you expect us to take africa over again if we don;t have someone on the inside.

  72. Lawson…never said I was smarter than anyone…let’s just say my mind is much less colonized, read programmed, than the average Black person who still suffers that terrible debilitating fate today….it makes them more unaware victims than actually stupid..

    Stupid …are their leaders and other politicians who never figured it out in 52 years and even if they did…are still too stupid to reverse and decolonize the black minds, since their own minds are still stuck in house negro mode.

    Harry did not marry outside his race, there is no marrying outside the human race…ya old drag queen racist…besides, he married into his own bloodline, the Markle bloodline, at least many generations removed, over 10 generations I think.

    Yall are going to be beheaded in Africa….so be my guest….ah would even buy yall tickets to Africa.

  73. The Origins of Arab Settlers in the Land of Israel
    Rotem Nimkovsky | 16/05/2018

    What’s in a name? In the case of the Arabs, it tells you what their tribe and country of origin are. It also dispels the biggest fallacy the “Palestinians” would like you to believe.

    The Arabs mark May the 15th as a day of remembrance for the catastrophe, the “Nakba” in Arabic, that befell them with the creation of the State of Israel. They claim the “indigenous” Arab inhabitants had to flee their “homeland” as a result. They conveniently fail to mention the reason for the “catastrophe” and where these supposed indigenous Arab inhabitants actually came from and when.

    UN General Assembly resolution 181 of 1947 called for the partition of the British Mandate in Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab entities. The Jewish leadership accepted the resolution. The Arabs countries rejected it, which is their right. What they had no right to, was to declare war on the Jewish population in the area.

    The armies of seven Arab countries set out to destroy the Jewish state, which they outnumbered a hundred to one. They also persecuted the Jewish citizens who lived in their own countries for hundreds of years, forcing them to leave and take refuge in the newly created State of Israel.

    The Arab nations, together with the Arab population in the British Mandate area, sought to annihilate the Jews in the region and failed. The only catastrophe for them in this scenario was that they lost the war.


  74. The incredible Anne Bayefsky speaking about the UN when it comes to their treatment of Israel! Watch her present at The Oxford Union.

    Is anyone in the UN listening?

    Every Western country must stand with Israel against radical Islamic terrorism.
    The Israeli people face the frightening escalation of Islamic terror acts through Israel.

    The world is silent when Palestinians inflict pain and death upon Israel but screams when Israel protects itself.

    Britain, the US and Australia should stop funding the UN.

    The U.N. General Assembly elected Qatar, Congo and Pakistan to its top human rights body, joining existing members such as Saudi Arabia, China, Cuba and Venezuela.

    Countries that practice Sharia laws have been chosen to be human rights watchdogs.
    Even a country like Iran has been given a seat in the UN Human Rights Council.

    Iran Where women are stoned to death, where gays are executed in a public square.
    Christians are brutally persecuted in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
    Pastors are jailed for no reason, no reason other than for being Christian leaders. Christians have been lashed for sipping wine during prayer services; Christians have been brutally tortured for doing nothing more than practicing their faith.

    Saudi Arabia is the head of the Human Rights Council, a country where there are no Christian citizens, even Christian migrant workers are persecuted by the authorities if they practice their religion.

    No religion is allowed to exist in Saudi Arabia except Islam, anyone who leaves Islam is executed.

    Pakistan is the worst country for Christians to live in.
    Under sharia blasphemy law Muslims murder Christians on false charges of insulting the Prophet Muhammad and the Koran.

    These countries are kidnapping the UN bodies to push the anti-Israel and anti-Western agenda.

    They use the United Nations to attack Israel which is the only democratic state in the Middle East where Christians are free and women are not considered citizens in rank.

    In the last two years Benjamin Netanyahu cut 90% of Israeli aid to the UN after U.N.’s Cultural Agency passed a resolution denying the Jewish and Christian connection to Jerusalem.

    Western countries should follow Israel – Cut all funding & Announce Withdrawal From U.N.

  75. Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security Fathi Hammad admits Arab forgery right on Al-Hekma TV (Egypt) on March 23, 2012.

    Have the Arab in Israel (so called “palestinians”) managed to fool you to believe they are Natives in the land of Israel ? And why they are so intimidated by History and facts ?

    In a temper tantrum he could not keep his mouth shut but had to blurt out the truth: that the “Palestinian” people are a fabrication, an invention. There never existed a state called Palestine or a people called Palestinian. And there never existed an invasion of Palestinian land over a territory that belonged to the jews over 1,000 years before Mohammed was even born.

    The Palestine-Israeli conflict is about hate. Jew hate. In fact, it’s about 1,400 years of antisemitism created by the Arabs. The Muslim faith demands that Muslims must hate jews and must dedicate themselves to kill jews. This deliberate effort to ethnic cleansing of the jews by propaganda and lies have even been spread to the West by Arab money, and deliberate Arab propaganda put into our schools and media signed via the Cairo declaration that allowed Arabs to create a “positive impression” of Palestine to the West.

    Prior from this we were free from this propaganda. The Arabs who now claim to be natives of the Holy Land have migrated to Palestine and invaded the land after 1917, from neighboring Arab countries, predominantly from areas now known as Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq.

    Where was this “Palestinian people”? In March 1977, Zahir Muhsein, an executive member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), said in an interview to the Dutch newspaper Trouw: “The ‘Palestinian people’ does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel.”

  76. I see Glasgow University has put up £20m reparations for a joint project with UWI. Does this mean that reparations is a backhanded way of funding the UWI or should that money go in to a separate fund? Discuss.
