Recommended Open Letter from Ryan Brathwaite to Rihanna

Submitted by PUDRYR

Attn: Ms. Rihanna Fenty

My name is Ryan Brathwaite and I am a Gold Medallist from Barbados (110 metres hurdles 2009 World Championships).

I have a question related to developing a support mechanism for talented Barbadians that I hope might be of interest to you.

I am starting an NGO called Outside the Winners Circle whose focus is to provide support to local talent, young (and not so young) bajan men and women  who currently depend on government support which is, as you may know, not at an optimal level. 

This initiative would focus on things like athletic scholarships,  support for talented artistes, or indigenous initiatives in need of financial/technical support I propose to build a virtual mechanism to support these resource-needy applicants, persons who are already “tried and tested” and are already “in the business” but fall just short of that “tipping point” and success.

I propose to create a Portal at www.outsidethewinnerscircle.com to manage the enrolment and critical facilitations for our best (and while I am an athlete our portal will reach out to our best)  and, with your support, I plan to demo that system via an online encounter with you (wherever you are in the world) on 30th November, from here in Barbados.

I know that you have a lot of experience in “what the local talent and performer sector needs, and currently lacks” and I am wondering if you would be interested in supporting this initiative.

I am promoting a virtual gateway for young people seeking investment, irrespective of the initiatives with a view to generating jobs for new breed entrepreneurs.

Do you think I should be focusing on a self sustaining web infrastructure or a business development/promotion option? 

What do you think of us doing a limited pilot (which would be a combination of both elements mentioned above) and then, given the buy-in, decide to focus on promoting the web portal model or the dedicated business financial support aspect?

In summary the portal would assist people like me, who might have “finite windows of opportunity”, but may have slipped out of “the Winner’s Circle”, not because they (we) dropped out, but because they (we) did not have the additional resources needed.

I’d love to know your thoughts Miss Fenty.

As a separate matter, I was also wondering if you’re seeing any possibility for you to promote a Second Tier Performer circuit which would bring lesser known performers to Barbados as your “guests” and create a following using such an activity to promote tourism and expose our local performers. I believe that many local hoteliers would support that program via discounts etc. 

It would be leveraging your name for what could be called The Rihanna Get Together. Do you think there is some currency there? It’s a bit hard to assess if that idea can work and if you could would assist it but, it might be a way to help Barbados if say you got Port Ferdinand and a few other hotels to band together with this.

Miss Fenty, thanks for reading this….you’re probably up to your eyeballs with the Rihanna vs. Beyonce Concert in addition to your World Tours at the moment. 

Continued success with your career I remain one of the many Barbadians who have so much pride and joy in your success and ongoing achievements

Best Regards

    @ Ms. Fenty

    Barbados is at the most precarious phase of its sovereign existence for various reasons which are to numerous to list.

    What we do know is that, amidst all these issues, what we are seeing is a rising hopelessness among our youth exemplified by the violence and murders across the length and breadth of Bim.

    Ours is not to continuously reason why but to proactively do something to change the narrative.

    This idea that one would only seek to provide some insights as to how it can be done is one for which i have clear and tangible elements.

    Its focus is to be on creating a real and present matrix for youth across the island to participate in viable sustainable activities as opposed to thinking that their options are limited to drug sales, use and abuse.

    This is an odd construct where I, a “third party” am making representations for and on behalf of one champion Ambassador Brathwaite, who is just a sample of the talented bajans that are here.

    This matter with Sir Charles and the gift of land being tied up in this way speaks to a much bigger issue than the stratification of Bajan society but it shows up the sores of a system that has been incapable of fostering an environment where Barbados is nurturing and creating other “Rihannas” and other “Ryan Brathwaites” consistently IN ANY SPHERE OF INDUSTRY.

    I’d like to suggest that there could be some “investment in” a programme whose focus is on empowering entrepreneurs.

    Most people will think that I mean money Ms. Fenty but that is not where my focus lies.

    What we bajans, particularly Black Bajans need is an image that so permeates our society that it is like an avalanche that pushes all obstacles out of its path.

    COW talks about moving the earth to please BUT YOUR INPUT WILL BE PLANTING A CROP TO PROVIDE A FOOD & HOPE THAT THESE OPPONENTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STOP.

    The battle that these fellows fight are for buildings and physical objects Ms Fenty but you are a singer and you will therefore understand me when I say that the song that we are asking you to sing IS A SONG FOR YOUR NATION which no bulldozer mentality can stop.

    As with these things BECAUSE THEY ARE SENSITIVE euphemism for that they are easily stolen by the bloggerati, one might not be able to easily share all of the details here but IF THIS INTEREST YOU (and others) we can advance this as you see fit.

    They say madness is doing the same failed thing over and over again and wondering why we achieve the same failed results or something like that.

    And that is what the electorate of BIM has been doing my brother.

    If you examine the facts my brother, you see that, neither of these administrations have “Thought Leaders” to the table.

    And this is why we find that they are having to engage the IMF because all this theft of land, accustomed teifing of government monies, waylaying of (EU and other IFI) developmental funds, this is why we are where we are at today.

    Because we, THE PEOPLE, choose dufuses to lead us and then wonder why a former Speaker of the House can charge $ 350-something-thousand for work that is $160K

    And the thing is that he has carried-away-a-ton money BEFORE, including this theft, twice that we know of !!!

    Changing the affairs of Barbados around is not a hard thing IF WE FOLLOW GOD’s direction, nothing is impossible but then again de ole man is infused with these “Come to Jesus moments all the time” lololol.

    When we voted on May the 24th we the PEOPLE shouted out for change and this is what we must demand of these people.

    And because we know that they cannot lead us WE HAVE TO SHOW THE THE WAY.

    Everything that the country needs is there for us to draw down on, all we have to do is to knock

  • This is the usual brass bowl response to mediocrity.

    When the people, systems and structures that are set up and funded to perform specific duties in a backwards country FAIL to achieve results, brass bowls seek to set up alternative people, systems and structures to perform these duties.
    Of course this will ALSO fail – for the simple reason that where brassbowlery is bliss, it is unlikely that common sense can prevail.

    Arthur perfected the art.

    The public service was an OBVIOUS mess, but rather than bite the bullet and sort the lotta jackasses out, he comes up with something called ‘public sector reform’ – basically creating YET another shiite department to waste more money.

    Productivity in the country going to the dogs…
    Rather than change the CULTURE to one of productivity-based rewards, he creates a ‘productivity council’ – that is even less useful that the original shiite that we had.

    Now we have a national sports council, an Arts and Sports Foundation, an Olympic association, a sports lottery that brags about the MILLIONS it gives to sports every year, and a ministry of sports to coordinate the whole shiite… NONE of which is worth what Paddy shot at…

    ….and Piece calling for Rihanna to set up a NGO…..

    @ Brother in Arms Bush Tea

    A few things.

    First of all this initiative IS NOT ASKING RIHANNA TO SET UP ANY THING.

    The concept evolved as a consequence of the article that was pushed as a coercion of the BLP to change the use of the Land gifted to Ryan Brathwaite.

    The premise of the creation of the NGO/501c3 is not to have Rihanna or Ryan look to do anything other than see an alternative which empowers talented persons IN THIS CASE ATHLETES with a mechanism that shifts the centre of gravity from “mendicancy” and begging reward from the Sir COWs to a self funded initiative.

    The model of said “outside the Winners Circle” acknowledges first that government and the National Sports Council and the business community can only gift so much.

    What OTWC proposes is a self sustaining model which would use some additional modalities to be self sustaining.

    I know for example that Enuff of Lorenzo duo is slow but you have no excuse.

    I previously stated that I would get someone to gift the OTWC a few concepts which would bring a different asset base to said organisation to generate a continuing stream for that entity.

    And since you know that I know people who can create these types of assets ON THE FLY you should understand that I am pushing the envelope here with a different model than the idiotic National Sports Council who by the way was courted 4 years ago and failed to grasp the idea cause dem was trying to teif it.

    So as to show that what was being proposed was not smoke and mirrors to viewers INCLUDING MS. FENTY one of the self generating assets was shared

    Specifically the Second Tier Performers Circuit for which brother Hants suggested the names of Glennis and Fleur.

    Like I said before Brother in Arms Bush Tea the idiot Enuff of Lorenzo duo is excused but you cannot be excused.

    Because of the fact that people like Enuff of Lorenzo duo troll BY for ideas to seem intelligent to Mia one cannot expose all the elements of the proposed model but as a teaser you will see that Module A of the 5 Module OTWC carries multiple revenue streams of which 4 are labelled CONFIDENTIAL cause there are theives lurking here.

    But the model clearly shows the 2nd Tier Performers Circuit as part of its structure.

    The Knowledge Economy IS THE ONLY WAY TO RAPIDLY DIVERSIFY OUR AILING ECONOMY Bush Tea.

    Millions of dollars can be generated overnight in this realm that you nor Mia nor her thought leaders CAN’T TEIF.

    Looka here we are 12 years later and though dem try teifing one such thought asset all those years ago dem still can’t deploy it!

    Enuff YOU ARE NOT MY EQUAL BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT IMBUED THROUGH THE SAME SOURCE “I AM”.

    IF YOU WERE, you could not nor would not seek to contend with me simply because the agents of GOD DO NOT FIGHT AGAINST themselves.

  • Ryan Brathwaite did not write that letter which brings into question who authored the proposals. Anyone who listens to Ryan speak knows the letter isn’t him .The real writer is hidden as possibly the agenda. Ryan deserves his land and accolades. COW’s gifts as we know come with a sting in the tail. Rihanna will be going against how she operates if she takes the letter seriously.

    What should be proposed to her is to invest or encourage the high flyers around her to invest here. Business opportunities for her or her powerful associates to start up employing hundreds of workers. This is not a beggar’s bowl its commercial investments where she earns profits for herself. At the same time she helps the island’s economy.

    Its not fair to Rihanna to go to her for hand outs. Cow typically called on her to take a few dollars out her top pocket and buy Apes Hill. Posters in the know say Apes Hill was built with NIS funds. Cow and his clique are geniuses at using poor tax payers money to create economic benefits for themselves. Nothing new its been ongoing for a long time.

    Rihanna should invest in her land of birth. Her investments should be proper business enterprises where she makes profits from them as the shrewd entrepreneur she has become.

    You said and i quote “…If Barbados was serious about building a national sports program an initiative similar to what is being proposed would have taken root when Obadele threw the island into a state of euphoria…”

    Let me see if I can put that in context.

    The Holy Bible begins at Genesis and ends at Revelations.

    What is its message? Repent of our sins, accept Jesus as the Way the Truth and the Light and seek to have communion through Him with His Father.

    A message that we have heard for thousands of years yet here we are even though the Son of GOD came and died for us WE ARE STILL HERE.

    I am NOR WILL EVER BE The Son of GOD.

    Now let me put this before you.

    Barbados Underground IS THE DE FACTO IDEAS4BARBADOS site.

    It is where all serious people come for thoughts of how to make a change in Barbados.

    You dun know that cause you see the hits and where they are coming from.

    So i have put a macro Knowledge Economy proposal here on Barbados Underground with my 5? submissions

    I have given the construct of the organisation.

    I have given the potential funder(s) – Rihanna and the bonafide presenter (Ambassador Ryan Brathwaite)

    I have spoken to the existing problem – no funding for young entrepreneurs and patchwork efforts by so called private sector parties to seem to be benevolent but to shaft our youth. I bet if Ryan Brathwaite was one of Sir COW’s horses at Apes Hill cow would have given him money for any of his needs

    I have provided the mandate and the beneficiary population

    I have provided ONE REVENUE STREAM which an idiot can extrapolate on

    I have skirted the Knowledge Economy elements because of certain aspects of Intellectual Assets.

    But here is the thing Honourable Blogmaster

    Let me copy and paste one of my posits here to make a point

    I have given the potential funder(s) – BUJU BANTON and the bonafide presenter (Ambassador Chris Gayle) ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?

    The thing is that I WOULD BE A FOOL TO COME HERE AND SPELL OUT THE FULL SCOPE OF THE INITIATIVE but what i have done in no small part is to provide a construct that WILL BE A DIVERSIFICATION INITIATIVE that will focus on our youth and SHOULD MISS FENTY BE SO DISPOSED give a boost to a much needed indigenous entrepreneurial spirit.

    I wont bore you with the responses of the National Sports Council nor will it be necessary to chronicle their grasp of these things.

    Where there is no vision THE PEOPLE WILL PERISH…

    As far as I know no one ask these clowns for anything, as soon as they hear a successful black person from Barbados achieved something on the world stage , they jump out as though it is their favorite slave accomplished something because of them and they too should be rewarded…eg…change of use for their stolen land….or a taxpayer funded contract or dipping their blighted hands into pensioners money…

    …they appoint themselves to be given a chance to commit highway robbery on the population…and if someone does not point it out, name and shame them…they will not stop, cause some black bajans act like they are too dumb and afraid to tell these public menaces where to get off…next time any of them insert themselves making empty self serving promises to successful black people, they should be publicly shamed…

    ….I have no clue what is wrong with people’s memories, without black people the likes of Cow would have NOTHING…the same Cow who claimed his black workers came to him out of slavery, the same crook who is always hunting down ways to rob the black population.

    Ryan has learned his lesson, he was right to call out Cow for the old fraud we all know he is.

    The fact is that while I am not the Opposition though so appointed by Enuff of Lorenzo duo I knew of at least 3 of the loans and one of them i knew about one year prior to its signing.

    The next thing that you obviously have not got a clue about is how these agencies operate.

    They are in the space where they submit a proposal for funding to other donors and corporate givers and display their portfolios and successes annually and thereby attract more funding.

    The reason that the EU decided that they would not put more money into the CEDA fiasco was because of their performance issues.

    The final decision for something like this if one were to approach the Entity that Ms Fenty works with would not be decided by Ms Fenty. In fact she would IF SHE WERE ON THE ADVISORY BOARD recluse herself.

    That is how it works in civilized country ELSE IT IS CALLED CONFLICT OF INTEREST and COLLUSION and she would be dismissed for such behaviour.

    Unlike the fiasco at the locally headquartered entity THESE INTERNATIONAL ENTITIES DO NOT PLAY like in this banana republic.

    It is a hypothetical stance for what the Ambassador CAN DO AS AN ALTERNATIVE as opposed to having Neil Holder advance his cause to get the Town & Country Planning Unit to change the use of the land.

    The premise of the suggested letter is to shift the focus of young athletes and entrepreneurs from begging to proposing new alternatives for revenue generation

    For many this suggestion will seem strange because they are unfamiliar with the mandate and operations of development agencies.

    Prior to Brother Hants ‘ information I will admit that I did not know of Ambassador Rihanna’s relationship with this education intervention agency

    That is a plus.

    But let me mention this.

    The suggested campaign has garnered 2000 downloads post submitting the blog and I don’t know how many people have read the submission.

    Is it desirable? Yes.

    Is is possible? Yes

    Will it happen? I am not sure, but what I am sure about is the effect that a successful indigenous solution would have on the psyche of bajan entrepreneurs specifically and bajans in general.

    What are we known for?

    Internationally?

    What lingers in the minds of of world denizens when the say Barbados? barring sea and Sun?

    But more importantly what is our mirror image?

    What would a Rihanna funded “Outside the Winner’s Circle” do?

    Imagine if

    (1) Three months after deploying the initiative it was to be employing 100 people? Or more?

    (2) 6 months after its implementation it was to break even and reimburse the initial investment?

    (3) one year after it was established the Government of Barbados was to have prosecuted 3 joint public private sector patents, AND THAT ALL 3 WERE WORLD RENOWN?

    (4) For every enrolled entrepreneur that, after one year, said entrepreneur has achieved their optimal business model projection?

    And what if THE INTERAMERICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK WERE TO PRE ENDORSE THAT MODEL?

    What would you say to that Tron?

    This is not about shuffling chairs on the deck of the Titanic this is about generating Forex and creating new sustainable high income jobs.

    But the ole man ent no thought leader nor pooch locker like Enuff of Lorenzo duo so you dun know that the model HAS TO BE FINANCED BY EXTERNAL PARTIES and like Rihanna, once success comes, all de bajan gine jump on board AND CLAIM IT AS THEIRS.

    WATCH MUH NUH!

    Look men!!
    Both wunna suggestions are misguided.

    enuff’s idea of using TCP regulations to get rich folks to give concessions to the poor when they get permissions to make their multi-million dollar projects is mendicant, childish, subservient, brass bowlery.
    It is based on the concept of inferior morons waiting in the yard for scraps and bones.
    EVERYONE with any common sense KNOWS that the rich folks simply make the stipulated donations, INCREASE the prices of their products to the SAME poor mendicants (or extract funds from the NIS) and the situation actually gets even worse.

    In any case, what kind of real MAN – after 60 years of free education, freedom, and political empowerment, has a mirror image based on handouts from the likes of COW?
    Steupsssss!!

    @ Piece
    Why the Hell does it make sense to create a NEW mechanism to achieve a SIMPLE objective that we ALREADY spend hundreds of millions of dollars EACH YEAR to achieve – but fail to achieve because there are ass holes in charge of this process (and money)???

    Our Education SYSTEM is intended to identify, nurture, promote and celebrate bright national stars like Brathwaite, Rihanna, Ping Pong etc…
    Our National Sports Council is intended to focus on our SPORTS talents and to refine THOSE talents.
    The damn BOA is intended to support the top high level stars on the global level.
    ….NONE of these brass bowl clown organisations perform satisfactorily … NONE.

    As a result, we have Sukie washing cars, Oba estranged to Barbados, Brathwaite begging COW like a parro, and other talents continually frustrated and disappointed. Bajan sport is among the worst in the region, YET we have the longest serving officials…

    The ONLY people who benefit from these institutions are jackasses like Jones – now with his big job in a medical school; the BOA big-wigs who spend their millions flying the world living hobby class; and the sports council people with cushy lifetime jobs doing dilly squat.

    Rather than fix our multi-million dollar failed systems, you somehow think that it is smart to come up with yet another smart aleck scheme – that will likely end up just like the other shiite schemes that we already have….
    This is the SAME SHIITE THAT ARTHUR DID WITH PUBLIC SECTOR REFORM, PRODUCTIVITY, ….and the same shiite with RESLIFE now….after CLICO.

    Do you know that Rihanna is successful BECAUSE a brass bowl Bajan is NOT running her affairs?
    Who will run your fancy scheme …Jayzee? …or will you do like government and give it to baloney, bizzy or COW?

    The challenge is to fix Education, the Sports Council, the BOA, and the Arts and Sports Fund.
    If we have no competent people to do these jobs then let us go with enuff …and beg like dogs,
    …. but shiite man – no more brass bowl mock schemes….

    If true, let’s hope the Mia government is on top of this to get back all those millions stolen from NIS through fraudulent means…for the Apes Hill scam.

    My Brother, I studied this thing looooooong and hard about precisely that last point that you made.

    “…but fail to achieve because there are ass holes in charge of this process (and money)???”…)

    The fact Bush Tea IS THAT @ 2018 THESE CLOWNS ARE NOT IN THAT MINDSPACE WHERE one can “fix Education, the Sports Council, the BOA, and the Arts and Sports Fund…”

    That cannot happen in 150 days Bush Tea.

    You think that de ole man spent over 763 days running a “Not one RH Seat campaign” while sucking one thumb in my mouth and the other one up my rear end?

    Homie DOES NOT PLAY THAT.

    That organization that I plotted for you CAN BE STARTED TODAY and it would deliver in the timeline stated BECAUSE IT IS NOT CRAFTED BY INCOMPETENTS Bush Tea

    I cursed in this submission and I try not intermingle The Source with my bad language, I try.

    But the idea cannot fail!!

    Let me see if i can help you with this concept and while I dun know that the rest of them are looking and grafting the idea, they DO NOT HAVE ITS ELEMENTS SO what the facsimiles that they will create WILL FAIL.

    CROSSPOLLINATION.

    “…noun. (i) Botany. the transfer of pollen from the flower of one plant to the flower of a plant having a different genetic constitution.Compare self-pollination. (2) a sharing or interchange of knowledge, ideas, etc., as for mutual enrichment; cross-fertilization.

    Periodically you share the concept of cooperatives and black people working together and how the credit union should operate and what to many seems like lofty ideas.

    But for de ole man, what you are saying is real.

    thirty nuff years ago i met *** while i was in *** and she introduced me to Kibbutz

    “…A kibbutz is a collective community in Israel that was traditionally based on agriculture. The first kibbutz, established in 1909, was Degania. Today, farming has been partly supplanted by other economic branches, including industrial plants and high-tech enterprises. Kibbutzim began as utopian communities, a combination of socialism and Zionism. In recent decades, some kibbutzim have been privatized and changes have been made in the communal lifestyle…”

    I was fascinated by it for 2 reasons, firstly because I could not understand why *** left me (yes in my youth I fancied myself quite a catch) and then I wanted to know what could drive her to **** (that is complicated) but suffice it to say she went back to Israel and remained there.

    But I digress.

    It is NOT THE NATURAL DISPOSITION OF BAJANS TO create nor participate in cooperatives.

    It is not the natural disposition of Bajans to share in anything, that has been our conditioning, but what I have been shown Bush Tea creates that organic kibbutzim EVEN THOUGH IT IS USUALLY OPPOSED and effects your cooperative concept.

    As usual one cannot share the innards of the concept but suffice it to say AND I AM GENERALLY A MAN OF MY WORD, the practicuum will work

    I dont know the backstory for Jack Boreman.

    I do know that he is an intelligent man or rather he is not the standard Bajan person who walks around Barbados and sucks badword.

    I am not able to assess if he wants to return to BU or if what happened was so egregious that he feels that such is not permissible.

    I know that I have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of GOD but I tend to put most things through that lens and try to forgive (I cant get the forget part done as yet as may be evidenced by my revisiting certain issues)

    That he comes here with this type of frequency shows a persistence that is admirable to be truthful.

    That man is worse than me and de grandson with that 763 day campaign.

    And he is intelligent too, I said that already.

    What I would do is to write to him offline and say that BU is prepared to let bygones be bygones (IF SUCH IS POSSIBLE) and invite him back to the fold.

    I would even make that a special blog, I dont know I am not aware of the history but that is my assessment from what I see of the way that he can manage a topic and be analytical even in between all of the other comments.

    But then again you are talking to a man who is locked on like a sidewinder to a heat signature

    BU is a blog for thinkers and people who want to learn and and to converse and take a licking sometimes (NOT LIKE AC heheheheheh)

    THis llittle island has a major problem and it needs minds that are not afraid to say no when all the rest are saying yes AND TO EXPLAIN WHY, but you got to remember that the aluminum over my head will cause these sorts of moments heheheheheheh

    Nowhere in any one of my representations have I proposed that de ole man be central to any of these initiatives

    On the contrary “The Eyes on Diversification (EOD) which is one of the CONFIDENTIAL ELEMENT is a specific program comprised of a series of actions which solicit the active involvement of the Barbadian Diaspora overseas…”

    “This programme which will be orchestrated from The Office of the Prime Minister, is an initiative, which will include, but not be limited to, transmitting a personal invitation, via varied media (letter, email and (VOIP) phone calls), to several thousand of the most prominent and successful Bajans domiciled in countries throughout the world…”

    As I have said multiple times I seek to enforce the cooperative concept WITH ALL MY SUGGESTIONS and while I am not the Christ and cannot make one man LOVE his brother man I can create synergies which require that he depends on and respects said brother.

    I continued by saying “Targeting such personages will be effected through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Barbados’ embassies/consulates which feeds right into WARU’s? suggestions about using teleconferencing at the embassies as opposed to flying all over the place FIRST CLASS like the former CEO at CEDA using up beneficiaries ADVANTAGE MILES

    What that concept proposes is a outreach to critically positioned “satellites” or people (to coin the Late EWB’s word) who will leverage the diverse links and relationships they have cultivated over the years in their respective areas of endeavor.

    Each target’s “relationships” will be catalogued and mined. Mining is defined as the detailed process of converting passive data assets to active initiatives…”

    Right now the “Outside the Winner’s Circle” Serious Poster is at 3,000 downloads and what that should suggest is that that concept that took the grandson a few hours to create/CONDENSE IS OF SOME INTEREST TO SOME 3,000 people!!

    I would be a real fool to come here and broadcast the innards of a concept that can be replicated anywhere that there is a serious government that wishes to advance its tourism & knowledge Economy products.

    One day de ole man going demit this earth but what will remain is a PPP that will continue to generate FOREX for Barbados.
