African Liberation Education (3)

Submitted by Ras Jahaziel

In this post-emancipation era, the world has become split into two different economic realities: Slavery-Wealth and Slavery Poverty…. otherwise known as First world and Third world…. otherwise known as

The Developed World

and The UNDER-Developed World…

otherwise known to the wise as The Shameful and Unjust Results of The Great Robbery.Look at this picture below: It can be called “Inequality as a result of The Great Robbery,”

…and you can be sure It is a strategy of White Supremacy.

One US dollar equals 134 Jamaican dollars.
Any place in the world where you look, you will find the same economic disparity when comparing any predominantly white country with any predominantly Black country.That is why there is always an exodus from the countries that were invaded and robbed to the countries that benefited from invading and robbing other countries. The survival instinct is always the prime motivator of Black and Brown migration.

  • MAN THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE JAMAICAN DOLLAR WAS WORTH MORE THAN A US DOLLAR.

    WHAT CHANGED TO CAUSE THE CURRENT DISPARITY WAS ALL THE FAULT OF THE MANLEY GOVERNMENT IN THE MID 70’S

    NOW WE READING A LOAD OF BULL SHITE

  • Israel, Saudi Arabia, Gulf States, Singapore, China, etc. – By Comparison, What makes them what they are if it’s not by either having good fortune of sitting on oil and an ability to use it for the benefit of their populace or by their ability and acumen to produce high value products the world wants?
    Then again, I’ve never seen an African leader who looked as though he needed a good meal himself or for a well armed and clothed force.

    Black leaders are notoriously weak and corrupt and only show strength when robbing, selling out or disenfranchising their own people…Barbados and other Caribbean countries are prime examples…right alongside their useless African counterparts.

    And that is outside the robbery games the former slave owning countries play..

    You are a liar … the Jamaican dollar started its declined in the 1980s/90s and this may have had a little to do with the Manley governmental economic policies… However, the Jamaican dollar valued a few cents more than the US dollar for about a year or two…

    It may be more correct to say that the decline in the value of the Jamaican currency mirrored the decline in the value of its main exports – sugar and bauxite.

  • WHEREAS THERE WAS A decline in the value of its main exports – sugar and bauxite AND ALSO BANANAS, IN THE 70’S DURING THE MANLEY REGIME WITH HIS DALLIANCES WITH CUBA THERE WAS MASSIVE FLIGHT OF CAPITAL FROM JAMAICA, ALONG WITH MYRIADS OF THE BUSYNESS FOLK.

    “It may be more correct to say that the decline in the value of the Jamaican currency mirrored the decline in the value of its main exports – sugar and bauxite.”

    It also “more correct” to argue that since Barbados is about 30 years behind Jamaica as far as the Western model in the ‘economic-development’ race is concerned are you implying that a similar fate faces the Bajan dollar given that the sugar industry in Bim is dead and its tourism industry (which will never outshine that of Jamaica’s) is not generating the levels of forex needed to stave off the dreaded devaluation of the Bajan Mickey dollar?

    BERT will soon tell Bajans like it is and that their currency is not even worth the tripe of paper it is printed on.

    Middle-class Bajans (and their materialistic aspirants) are going through the same death pangs that their Jamaican counterparts in the Red Hills communities experienced in the 1980’s.

    Barbados never trailed Jamaica in anything of virtue. Is there any good reason why we should follow it now?

    @ Donna

    The champagne that is being imported is not being drunk by the average Barbadian. The tourists,expats and wannabes are drinking it. Most of them bring the foreign exchange to pay for it.

  • All the Worlds Rulers were originally Black, and it stayed that way until our Albinos usurped power and took over the World. Not content with just the military power, out of pure evil, they decided to kill as many Blacks as they could, and then write Blacks Out-of-History. It is therefore very unusual to find a document which actually refers to a well known King as being Black skinned as we have here. Of course, along with bogus writings, our Albinos also created millions of FAKE Artifacts depicting Black Kings and Nobility as Albinos like themselves ……

  • The video clearly shows cheddar man has no resemblance to modern European.

    How Europeans evolved white skin – By Ann Gibbons Apr. 2, 2015
    Quote:
    “The modern humans who came out of Africa to originally settle Europe about 40,000 years are presumed to have had dark skin. which is advantageous in sunny latitudes. The new data confirm that about 8500 years ago, early hunter-gatherers in Spain, Luxembourg, and Hungary also had darker skin: They did not have mutations in two genes—SLC24A5 and SLC45A2—that lead to depigmentation and, therefore, pale skin (Albinism) in Europeans today. ”

    Genetics Out of Africa
    Dr. Orville Boyd Jenkins

    “Recently a major molecular cause of this change in skin color has been discovered in Europeans. Specifically, the gene SLC24A5 turns out to be critical for the production of melanin, the predominant dark pigment of the skin and hair. … 100 percent of Europeans have a mutation in SLC24A5 that impairs the function of the protein…. Asians share the fully functional version of SLC24A5, but have acquired mutations in other genes that result in lighter skin, while retaining black hair [Francis Collins, The Language of Life (NY: Harper, 2010), p 150].”

    Just as some Whites have abandoned the nonsense of “Whites being Black Europeans who turned White”: They are also abandoning the hope that White skin could in some way, be a “Normally” occurring mutation to address some environmental need. As we have clearly shown above, there is no place on the Earth where White people can safely abide without protection from the Sun. That particular frailty is unique to Albinos, and Albinos only!

  • Dear BU,

    May |I through your space call for a widespread campaign for Keith Sandiford, the most outstanding Barbadian historian of the 20th century and a beacon of the Barbadian Diaspora, be made a knight.
    This son of the Bayland is not only academically bright, he has never retreated from sharing his vast knowledge with the general public, in Barbados, the UK and his adopted home country, Canada.
    The nation failed to suitably recognise Kamau Brathwaite, a global heavyweight, and we must never again allow the brightest and best of us to fade away unrecognised, apart from a few people.
    If we can all – or as many of us as possible – write a letter each to the prime minister asking for his name to be put forward that alone would say something about our generosity of purpose.

    Regards

    Hal Austin

    Plse see a brief biog below.

    KAPS – A BRIEF BIO
    KAPS was born in the Bay Land, St Michael, Barbados, on 2 March 1936. He was educated at the Bay Street Boys’ Elementary School, Combermere School (Barbados) and the University College of the West Indies (Jamaica) before immigrating to Canada. He spent most of his life as an educator. He began his teaching career at the Barbados Evening Institute in 1954 and Combermere in 1955. A Government Scholarship took him in 1956 to the UCWI, from which he graduated with a BA Hons in History in 1960. In that year, he won a Commonwealth Graduate Scholarship and completed his education at the University of Toronto, earning an MA in 1961 and a PhD in 1966.
    While pursuing his doctoral research, KAPS served as a Lecturer at York University in 1964/65 and at the University of Toronto in 1965/66. He was appointed an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba in 1966 and rose to the rank of Full Professor in 1982. Following his retirement in 1998, he served as a Senior Scholar in the Department of History and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Winnipeg. He was elevated to the status of Professor Emeritus in 2002. While on the staff of the University of Manitoba, he became the first (and so far only) member of the Faculty of Arts to receive merit awards in all four of the designated important areas: teaching, research, administrative service and community involvement.
    Dr Sandiford has left an enviable reputation as a scholar. A prolific author, he wrote, edited and published countless books, articles, essays, pamphlets and reviews on a wide variety of subjects ranging from Victorian politics, culture, diplomacy and sport to Caribbean cricket, Barbadian education, Black Studies, and Caribbean contributions to the development of modern Manitoba. On these subjects, he was often invited to speak in such cities as Bridgetown (Barbados), Edmonton (Alberta), Kingstown (St Vincent), Montreal (Quebec), New York (USA), Ottawa (Ontario), Roseau (Dominica), St John’s (Antigua), Sydney (Australia), Thunder Bay (Ontario), Toronto (Ontario), and Vancouver (BC). After his retirement, Keith devoted his life mainly to the study of international cricket and became a highly respected cricket sociologist and statistician. He is now generally regarded as one of the leading pioneers in the historical sociology of sport. It is interesting to note that while Kamau Brathwaite, Austin Clarke, C.L.R. James, George Lamming, V.S. Naipaul and Derek Walcott are generally considered the finest and most productive of all Caribbean authors, KAPS eventually produced more publications than all of them. His Cricket and the Victorians (1994), Cricket Nurseries of Colonial Barbados (1998), A Black Studies Primer: Heroes and Heroines of the African Diaspora (2008) and Sir Garfield Sobers: The Bay Land’s Favourite Son (2019) have all received exceptionally high praise from literary critics.
    Throughout Canada, Professor Sandiford was best known as an active community volunteer who rendered yeoman service to such organizations as the Afro-Caribbean Association of Manitoba (ACAM), Barbados Association of Winnipeg (BAW), the Black Educators’ Association of Manitoba (BEAM), the Black Creative Writers’ Inc (BCW), the Council of Caribbean Organizations in Manitoba (CCOM), the Canadian Labour Force Development Board (CLFDB), the Caribbean Seniors of Manitoba (CSM), the National Council of Barbadian Associations in Canada (NCBAC) and the National Council of Black Educators in Canada (NCBEC). He held executive positions in nearly all of these organizations and presided over most of them.
    2 Dr Sandiford has been the recipient of many accolades, plaques and medals as a result of his contributions to these associations. He was also honoured by the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), the Combermere School Old Scholars’ Association (CSOSA), the Dinamba Intercultural Association of Manitoba and the Multicultural History Society of Ontario. In 2004, the Government of Barbados awarded him the prestigious Gold Crown of Merit (GCM) and, in 2011, the University of the West Indies bestowed upon him an honorary Doctorate of Letters (DLITT) for his contributions to education and community service.
    In his early years in Winnipeg, Keith was an avid bridge player and served as the Vice President of the Manitoba Bridge League during 1969-73. He was a member of the team-of-four who won the provincial championship in 1969. He had also been a member of the UCWI team who won the prestigious Lyon’s Shield in Jamaica in 1959. He became a Life Master of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) in 1975. In addition to bridge, KAPS was addicted to a wide range of indoor games, including Chinese checkers, darts, dominoes, draughts, Scrabble and warri throughout his youth. He captained the UCWI domino team that won the Wray & Nephew competition in 1959 and represented that institution in every conceivable indoor activity. He was, in fact, only nine or ten years old when he defeated the warri champion of the Bay Land to the great delight of his father and his elderly friends who had wagered (and won) several pints of rum on the result!
