Remembering Bob Marley

Submitted by Melissa Martin, Ph.D., is an author, columnist, and educator. She lives in U.S.

The footprints of Bob Marley appear on the sand in Jamaica and across the earth wherever freedom is held hostage. Likened to Martin Luther King, Jr., Marley desired peace for his people. And for all humanity. Music was the vehicle for his message. His passionate personality was his vehicle for harmony in a chaotic world of violence.

I am remembering Bob Marley with my words in this column. “Bob, you are missed. But your legend of light shines on and on and on.”

Nesta Robert Marley was born in 1945. Being biracial, Marley was bullied as a child, but declared, “I’m not on the white man’s side, or the black man’s side. I’m on God’s side.”

Marley died of cancer in 1981 in Miami at the age of 36 years. He was laid to rest in Jamaica.

According to a 2014 article in the Jamaican Observer, “The lives of many people all over the world have been profoundly influenced by Jamaicans such as Ms Mary Seacole, Messrs Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, Claude McKay and Usain Bolt. Some who were revolutionary political activists destined to change the world spent an important interval in Jamaica. The most famous was the liberator of Latin America, Simon Bolivar, who penned the famous ‘Jamaica Letter’ from these environs.” www.jamaicaobserver.com/.

Marley received The United Nations Peace Medal of the Third World in 1978. On April 22, 1978, the One Love Peace Concert was held at Kingston’s National Stadium where Marley asked two opposing politicians to join hands. “You entertain people who are satisfied. Hungry people can’t be entertained – or people who are afraid. You can’t entertain a man who has no food,” is a quote by Marley.

The 74th birthday of Marley, the reggae legend, was celebrated at the Bob Marley Museum on Hope Road in Jamaica in February 2019, according to The Gleaner www.jamaica-gleaner.com/.

The Bob Marley museum is situated on the site of the legendary musician’s home. “Bob’s home is filled with rich memories and treasured mementos, which seek to preserve the life and accomplishment of this great Jamaican and outstanding musician.” www.bobmarleymuseum.com.

The Bob Marley Foundation implements social intervention projects that aim to preserve the spiritual, cultural, social and musical ideals that guided and inspired him. “Never expect God to do for you what you don’t do to others,” Marley avowed.

A March 10, 2005 article published in the Rolling Stones sang a tribute to Marley. “But Marley’s early-to-mid-1970s Island recordings were also something a good deal more than pioneering entertainment: They put forth an uncompromising vision of a society kept in hell and ready to storm its gates. Songs like “Burnin’ and Lootin’,” “Small Axe,” “Concrete Jungle,” “Revolution,” “Them Belly Full” and “War” — especially “War,” with its proclamation of eternal worldwide conflict: “Until the philosophy which hold one race superior/And another inferior/Is finally and permanently discredited” — brandish unsettling images and incendiary pronouncements that are among the most authentic in modern music.”

So Much Things to Say, a book by Roger Steffens (Norton & Company, 2017) contains myriad interviews by those who knew Marley. His story begins when his white father abandoned his pregnant mother. From being raised in the slums to becoming a cultural icon, Marley remained true to his roots. He sang about the worst of humanity and the best of humanity.

Sinner, saint, or both. Marley was quite a colorful character. Fathering multiple children with multiple women. Being an advocate for marijuana as a spiritual restorative herb. Humanity’s heroes are not without flaws and foibles. “Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect — and I don’t live to be — but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean!” stated Marley.

The legacy of Bob Marley, the singer, the humanitarian, and the man, remains.

  • Bob Marley, was truly an inspiration to the Black cause, and this is the reason why he has left indelible mark on the collective – conscience of the Black race… So me haa fee big im up…

    Nevertheless, the one thing that troubled me about the article is the way in which he was bullied as a child growing up in Jamaica because he was viewed as different by the majority Black population…

    Now my current wife is haft Black and haft Jamaican Chinese, ( her father is Jamaican Chinese and her mother is Jamaican Black) and she tells me of similar experiences as Bob Marley growing up in Jamaica … the constant bullying because of her Chinese features and high yellow complexion …

    Why are black people still allowing these demons to label their children, because a child has emotional problems, it does not mean they are possessed…the only possessed here is this ugly ass demon claiming to be a psychologist with her illuminati medal tucked into her old dried up bosom..

    when will black bajans wake up and do not allow these demons to touch or label black children.

    It always seems to fall to the Pachamama to bring criticality to the affairs of the humanoid.

    Sometime ago a man appeared on YouTube from his hospital bed saying that as a CIA agent he befriended the Great Robert Nesta Marley and carried out his injection with a cancerous ‘serum’ that was planted into a pair of knickers he had given to Marley.

    Now. we know with certainty that the American government has for years killed artists, politicians, social activists and the like because of a perceived threat to empire. The list is much toooo long to recall.

    However, we followed-up this deathbed confession by this professed former CIA agent to see whether the government of Jamaica or any other Caribbean, or world government for that matter, would have initiated an international investigation. Our efforts came up blank.

    Nesta Marley, although not our favourites reggae actor, has done more for the liberation of African peoples than anybody else in recent generations. That he could have been so destroyed represents a stain on what it means to be a Caribbean and exposes people like Rihanna to similar threats.

    We know also that the music business is widely run by the Mafia. The Jewish Mafia as dominant player. And that the Mafia and the intelligence agencies of the United States government work in unison on some issues.

    We remember, at the time of his illness, there was a report that the cancer had started in his toe. That story has stays in our memories all this time. And it seems to correlate with this deathbed confession especially if this man would have been really a CIA operative.

    We trust that the ‘real’ White devils running this world and their Christian agents near and far would see this as a significant indictment of all that they pretend to be.

    I wonder why.but then it goes back to barbadians having a crab mentality and hatred of their own

  • It seems as though Verla Depieza gave instructions for you to resurrect this LEC nonsense on BU.

    As far as I remember, Mottley never said she would present her LEC in parliament, she said her qualifications. Unless you want to prove me wrong by showing us a press report.

    Saying someone said something without proving it, is nothing more than hear-say.

    @WARU, Crazy & Unstable, Hogging the Blog March 13, 2019 5:56 AM “Why are black people still allowing these demons to label their children, because a child has emotional problems, it does not mean they are possessed.”

    Who says that the child has emotional problems? Where did that come from? The same people who are abusing the child?

    If two people twice your body weight tied you up with ropes and attempted for approximately 30 minutes to drag you up stairs would you not resist? The child was the only person in the video acting rationally. She was resisting gross physical abuse. What was she supposed to have done? Play dead? Take the abuse?

    We really need to wake up.

    The old white witch moved to Barbados and discovered that she can sit at home make an easy living from gullible people.

    You can bet your bottom dollar that she is making/has made a serious amount of dollars from “helping” credulous people.

    I gather that the child has been sent for a psychiatric evaluation.

    My questions: When will the adults be sent for a psychiatric evaluation also? Or when wil they be arrested?

    If a “bad boy” from Deacons was caught doing to his daughter or girlfriend what was being done to that child he would have been arrested already.

    The old witch claims that she is a Gnostic priest, and a psychologist. I would not be at all surprised to find that she barely completed elementary school.

    The thing is, from the information released so far, many, maybe even most of the parents had already spent lots of money on [elite?] private schools, private tutors, etc. the kids had plenty of opportunity to focus.

    The thing is sometimes parents who are outstanding in their fields produce mediocre kids, ordinary kids, who average C+ or B-, and who should therefore go to a community college or an ordinary university, and afterwards go on to live an ordinary life, earning ordinary wages.

    But ordinary life does not pay very well, hence the lying, cheating, and scheming. Fancy paying somebody $100,000 USD to write the 3 hour SAT exam for your kid. Fancy paying over a million dollars to get your kid into a “good school.”

    And the exam writer, who was willing to fly across country, or across the continent from Florida to British Columbia as alleged by the USG to write exams for the duncy children of the wealthy is none other than a white, male, Harvard grad.

    We should pay attention.

    What if these people got ahold of Harrison College?

  • The question of privelge Power and influenced and achievement through backdoor and darkened room methods have become a hot topic of interest recently
    After it was discovered that indivduals having wealth can buy their way into higher schools of learning and become certified and accredited
    There has been a dark cloud of suspicion hanging over the head of Mottley as to how she became accredited and entitled to become an admitted lawyer of the bar
    The issue in question hinges on a LEC requirement and how it was bypass by powers in high places on Mottley behalf
    Yes all have heard the answers on the whys and shoulds and coulds
    However no one has heard the full and convincing story as to Why a woman of privilege and political back ground was given a pass to receive a required achievement when others in lowly and not influential did not
    Mia issue of not having an LEC Is just as much an issue as what has happened in the USA recently when power wealth and influenced combined can open doors only to rich and famous and influential

    Rihanna, is the envy of most Jamaicans …and that isn’t an understatement …

    However, I do agree with you that Rihanna has put Barbados on the map, but the problem with Rihanna is that she has become too provocative and ghetto …

    Now when Rihanna first came out in America she was loved by Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and Asians, but as soon as her music started to take on this immoral tone, as well as her lifestyle … people started to forbid their children from listening to her music….

    But she has made my brothers, sisters as well as myself here popular by virtue of the Fenty name… So nuff respect Tah Rihanna… and as GP wah sah …he who is without sin pell de first big rock…

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Yes there ought to be express objection to Mariposa wearing a musty weave because it scrambles the limited brain cells of the many pussy character called “ac”.

    All that is missing is her skin bleaching cream to turn her into the full political zombie she is stupidly becoming.

    Why is she attacking MAM on nonsensical irrelevant matters like an LEC which every sane sensible person (other than the Mari pokey, the Fractured BLP and the now disappeared T.Inniss) knows Ms Mottley never possessed?

    What does ac aka Angela skeete the fraud want MAM to do? Turn into a magician like Merlin or David Copperfield and produce an LEC like Denis Lowedown’s ‘bought’ PhD?

    There are so many critical matters worthy of serious criticism of the MAM administration like the building of more Cost-U-Less-type foreign exchange wasters on former agricultural lands and in direct competition to budding black businesses.

    Why is a goods-importing superstore selling trinkets and consumer junk being given ‘investment’ priority over the potential forex-earning Hyatt hotel which has been in the planning pipeline for years?

    Where is the forex going to come from to keep this forex glutton alive? More borrowings from the country’s banker of last resort, the IMF, to prop up the balance of payments junkie?
