Race Talk | Making the World a Better Place

[Barbados Underground] The blogmaster promised to continue the discussion on race and how all citizens must feel responsible for making the world a better place.

How do we do it? In thought, work and deed.

The millions that watched the CNN Lebron James interview last night would have gleaned how prominent individuals in a society can use star power to set an example for others how we approach the many challenges life will present – including that of race. Too many of our prominent citizens do not step out of the shadows to try to positively influence others to attempt to make the world a better place.

While watching the interview the BU household was able to draw a parallel to our neck of the woods.

    @ Minister of Culture and the Creative Economy John King

    I write here on behalf of the fallen Abijah Holder who being cold in the earth has no fingers to pen this note to you.

    you said recently on Emancipation Day something that went “…“Why should we be having people scampering and running from guns? Why should we now have to put in extra security to protect revellers on the road? This is a sign of what I call a regressive society because a more enlightened society does not operate at this level…”

    All that is well and good John King and falls very much in line with the songs that you sing as “Word Song”

    You know what you can do to show that your “Mia Cares” Government is truly about enlightenment?

    You sir can come down off your high horse and do something for me.

    At Coverley Plantation, sorry at Coverley Development, the same place where Prime Minister Mottley proposes to house the students from Ross University for the millions of dollars that Ross generates, do you thing that you could ask Mia Mottley to spend a few dollars and get a DC8 Backhoe donated by COW Williams the knight to dig up that island that led to my death?

    I would appreciate that very much Minister John King as an act as it relates to true Emancipation

    Signed

    By some who seems unable to forget my 11 year old self unlike so many of you Word Song Giants of Men…

    When I read some of the comments emanating from the notorious, divisive and probably racist Freedom Crier it depresses me. The world is and has been embracing black culture over a surprisingly long period yet in Barbados we see a people and its culture being continually denigrated and suppressed.

    Take a look at the two music videos below featuring a group from Chile and two groups from Italy. The first group is an Afro Beat group playing Nigerian music inspired by the late and great Fela Kuti; whilst the combined group are playing Jamaican inspired music.

    If only we as a people had as much belief in ourselves as these three groups have a believe in our music and our culture.

    Freedom Crier is a tragically sad and an out-of-touch character like so many of her minority country men and women. Is it therefore any surprise that Barbados remains a cultural back water for people of African descent when we have characters like her roaming and loitering on the island of our slave ancestors?

    @ David,
    I have just been reading a few extracts from the book entitled “The Sugar Barons – Family, Corruption, Empire and War” by the Author – Matthew Parker. Judging from my experience of Barbados and some of the views held by certain commentators it is evident that our mindset has not moved beyond those shared by the racist planter class of yesteryear.

    You seem a very sensible person. I would suggest that whatever you do do not entertain the idea of moving to Barbados to make any contribution. They will eat you alive. Spend a couple weeks a year then leave. There are more opportunities for you as a black person in the UK than in Barbados.

    Well, Well August 2, 2018 8:20 PM “That is why I keep telling Freedom Crier…freedom is for everyone…but she still don’t get it.”

    Freedom Crier August 2, 2018 9:11 PM “Where The Spirit of the Lord is there is Freedom and Liberty … 2 Corinthians 3: 17

    If you Understood that you would know what Freedom is and by whom it is Given… These words Preceded the Commandments.

    Exodus 20 (KJV)

    “And God spake all these words, saying,
    I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

    The Opposite is Bondage and Tyranny”

    I used a Meme with Bob Marley…Free Yourself from Mental Slavery and his Video…Bob Marley – Redemption Song….

    Well, Well August 2, 2018 9:23 PM…”You need to stop using Marley for your crackpot intent..am warning you.”

    Needless to say Freedom is shuddering in her Boots but with such a confidence of warning another Blogger one can’t help but wonder if WWC is not on the BU pay roll?

    As Dr.GP says…”SHOULD WE ALSO DECIDE THAT THIS BLOGGER IS BENEATH CONTEMPT AND WORTHY OF EXISTING?”

    The Cultural Appropriation demonstrated by those like WWC feel that you should not use something that identifies with another race… That is Bigotry.

    Truth is what is important, and excepting truth is how we grow in our understanding…By excepting truth wherever it may be found is called repenting, it means a Willingness to Change for the better.

    For you to say I could not identify with Bob Marley and what he said was BS.

    You want the Same O Same O, you do not want to change your mind-set with your myopic view on Race. You do not want to change while pointing fingers at others that they should do so….

    This one is Dedicated to WWC and Ilk on the BU Race Train!…

    @ To the BU family,

    There is a good reason why I have called out the racist Freedom Crier. This individual claims that she loathes vulgarity, cussing and threatening however this has not prevented her from creating her very own personal pulpit on BU where she continues to spew her nasty neo-fascist and racist ideology.

    She has continued to dismiss the legacy of slavery on Barbados by instructing the majority population to “get over it”.

    555dubstreet is accurate in his assessment. If you give a platform to the scum of the earth to vent their views they will destroy you. This is why I’am appealing to the blogmaster – David and to the government of Barbados to remove the platform that you have given Freedom Crier and to declare her “persona non grata”.

    Now on to another matter but linked to the above. Why has a country with a near 100 percent African population and a terrible colonial history established and maintained diplomatic ties with an overtly fascist, racist country with a colonial legacy?

    Just for the record, Argentina had a policy in place to wipe out her vast African population. Where do you think most of the fascists fled to after the second world war? The South American continent was a haven for these monsters and Argentina took there fair share of them.

    The question you need to ask yourself is why a country such as Argentina who mal-treated and decimated her African population would want to establish a relationship with a predominately African-majority country. My message to Mia would be to send the serpent (Ambassador of Argentina to Barbados Gustavo Martinez Pandiani) packing and close down their embassy.

    @ Hal Austin,

    Not to worry. There is zero chance of me living in Barbados. I will take my chances here in Europe or somewhere else – but never in Barbados. The country would have to change drastically before I could consider such a move. This diplomatic relationship with Argentina sickens me to the core.

    What was the Errol Barrow doctrine “Friends of all, satellites of none”. Good God man!

    This video would be lost on Freedom Crier and her ilk in Barbados.

    Freedom Crier epitomises the typical racist white emboldened by Trump who is an expert in being racist and white.

    When they make snark comments to provoke reactions they act all innocent and surprised when people push back.

    The racist patriots in USA marching will blame the counter protests for the fights they start.

    Racists want to divide and do want to mix.

    It is rather limited, but it knows that fine words laced with hatred are worse than using a four letter word.
    It knows that some can quote fine biblical verses to support the most heinous of behavior/crime against mankind.
    It knows that some can sit in chambers and create fancy sounding rules (law s) which will deprive others of their right.

    Yes, there is some language that I would use with others that I would not use when talking to my mother and sister.

    I also believe that a four letter word often conveys the message more clearly….

  • Those that oppose Freedom, You have little of worth as far as Building our Nation Barbados and only take pleasure in Destroying those who do. Your only desire is to spill Emotional Prejudices rather than to one’s intellect or reason while attacking an opponent’s character rather than answering his argument. Your Persona is personal abuse, personal attacks, abusive fallacy, damning the source, name calling, refutation by caricature, against the person.

    Your Strategy is an attack upon an opponent in order to discredit their argument or opinion.

    Ad hominems are used by immature and/or unintelligent people because they are unable to counter their opponent using logic and intelligence.
