Open Letter to Prime Minster Mottley and Minister King

Open letter to The Hon. Mia Amor Mottley, Q.C., M.P. (Prime Minister) and
 The Hon. John A. King, M.P.(Minister of Creative Economy, Culture and Sports)

 

Dear Prime Minister and Minister of Culture,

John_King

Minister of Culture, John King

Prime Minister Mia Mottley

I am sure by now you are aware that people in Bristol removed the statue of slave trader, Edward Colston, and deposited it in a nearby river. With this act, people in that city sent a clear message to the world that they would no longer tolerate the glorification of accomplices in the commission of crimes against humanity and those who grew rich from their sordid involvement in human trafficking.

In the present climate when there is a heightened global awareness of the need for zero tolerance towards racism and its symbols, it is unconscionable that in Barbados, a country where over 95% of its citizens are descendants of enslaved Africans, that a monument like Colston’s in Bristol, sits in the heart of our capital city. It is an affront to the people of Barbados and to those all over the world who are standing up to speak out against racism that Nelson’s monument continues to sit in the heart of Bridgetown. It is long overdue that this odious tribute to racism be removed.

There are no longer any excuses that can be made for your government’s failure to remove it. I am therefore writing to you as a concerned Bajan to call on you to do the right thing and remove this affront to the people of Barbados and to all those who today are courageously raising their voice against racism.

It would be very fitting, if it was replaced with a tribute to Nanny Grigg and to the many thousands of unsung Bajan women whose self-sacrifice, ingenuity and struggle have played a decisive role in our people’s progress from the pit of degradation that the English slave masters threw us into.

Yours

  • Dear John,

    What you are missing is this – if you hit me with a twig for insulting your mother and I chopped off your head with a machete, I would be convicted of manslaughter.

    But you know that. No-one is allowed to use excessive force. Not me. Not you. Not the police.

    According to your convenient book, if these officers do not repent of these murders justice will eventually be meted out to them.

    But I don’t think we will have to wait that long. You and all those like you are on their way out. You will be defeated. Read the tea leaves.

  • quote] Rwanda has used investment in science, technology and innovation as a springboard to grow and diversify its economy. Between 1996 and 2015, its per capita gross domestic product (GDP) more than tripled to US$1,756—outpacing some bigger and more resource-rich African countries with fast-growing economies, such as Kenya, whose per capita GDP merely doubled over the same period. As a result, Rwanda is often held up as a model of what can be achieved if clear ambitions are backed up with strong political leadership. Although the country’s economic activity remains modest—its private sector is still largely informal—the rapid modernization of its infrastructure is attracting both foreigners and Rwandan expats to the country.

    “Officials supervising the removal of a statue of Jefferson Davis from the Kentucky state capitol on Saturday found items left in its base.

    Those who put up the marble statue of the Confederate president left a Glenmore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey bottle and a newspaper – dated 20 October 1936.

    Davis was born in Fairview, Kentucky in 1808 and became a soldier, a senator from Mississippi and US secretary of war. From 1861 to 1865 he led the Confederacy through the American civil war.

    “African slavery, as it exists in the United States, is a moral, a social and a political blessing,” he said.”

    Anybody that can justify lethal force against a man RUNNING AWAY truly has a depraved mind. Lethal force is a LAST RESORT to preserve life and not to flippantly use to enforce law. I suspect Johnny ma Boy just love these modern day lynching of black people because he cant do it himself for fear of being arrested and put in jail with a whole lot of “people of colour” that are willing to give him a good time…….
    This hiding behind a badge to justify murder is the main reason why there are calls for police reform and “defunding the police”. Mind you i believe in a law enforcement office…but there has to be a better way…The officers that pushed the 75 year old gentleman and didn’t not even stop to see if he was alright cannot be good policing. Police easily using lethal force is based on that backward USA constitutional amendment of the “right to keep and bear arms” without proper regulation. If firearms were not so easily available in the USA then there would be less need for police be callous enough to use lethal force.

    African countries on Friday called on the U.N. Human Rights Council to organize an urgent debate on racism and police violence, in the context of global mobilization after the death of George Floyd in the United States.

    “In a letter written on behalf of the 54 countries of the African Group, of which he is coordinator for human rights questions, the ambassador of Burkina Faso to the United Nations in Geneva, Dieudonné Désiré Sougouri, asked the body to the U.N. to organize an “urgent debate on the current racially-inspired human rights violations, systemic racism, police brutality against people of African descent and violence against peaceful demonstrations.”

    “The tragic events of May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis, USA, which resulted in the death of George Floyd, sparked worldwide protests over the injustice and brutality faced by people of African descent daily in many regions of the world,” wrote the ambassador.”

    YOU, simply cant see the absurd contradiction of a ‘peace officer’ whose life is NOT threatened effecting a violent, fatal ending to a contentious encounter…. PARTICULARLY with Black folks.

    In your mind space YOU absolutely are missing nothing… as YOU are incapable so to do!

    You obviously miss that daily hundreds of police officers lie as pathologically as the same ‘suspects’ they encounter in their reports.

    Neither do you miss that they are willing to use lethal force when the threat is contained or fleeing from them unarmed.

    Nor that they often escalate rather than use their extensive training which guides how to deescalate difficult situations.

    Yep, YOU are missing nothing …

    Let police reforms be focused, purposeful and implemented ASAP; let’s banish illogical debates about ‘disbanding/defunding’ and adding social programs as a practical reformative tactic.

    Now is a good time for our dynamic world-class leader to introduce a radical transformation of the criminal justice system, not just the police. We talk about police brutality in the US, but in Barbados we have a police officer who has been on bail for about three years for shooting his neighbour.
    Was the gun used a police issue gun? Is he still on full or part pay? Does he have to report to a nearby police station regularly? Why are these questions not being asked, and more? Why the secrecy?

    On another matter,, this is what someone just posted on a majority-black blog:

    They are many Black Voices that Need to be Heard and they are many Leftist Whites that fund BLM and Tell them What to Believe and What they should Say and How they Should Act and What they Should Do.

    John, respectfully but your posts are idiotic. You say that your comments are sound when eany well informed teen can identify your gross absurdities of racist folly.. yet u parade the garbage daily before well educated, well traveled, experienced mid-age folks. SMH.

    Every cop before he gets on the street completes training at a police academy… it’s a certainty that they relentlessly role-play all types of interdiction/arrests scenarios thus for you to opine that “If you then turn around and point your finger at them you are dead’ is no more that a remnant of your RACIST ethos … fact is that,undoubtedly many police depts. likely did encourage THAT style of policing in Black naves for years and despite CHANGES in training practices many LIKE YOU still abide by that when they see a BLACK face…

    I suppose you will opine that cops who carried ‘drop guns’ were awesome, goody-guys/gals also and had excellent motives for carrying that unauthorized weapon.

    I further suppose that you accept that cops are justified in accepting the right to bear arms by a rifle-waving, drunken white man at a Dairy Queen (not a Wendy’s this time) in Michigan as cool breezing and no threat to their life and limb … just as with Rayshard the police spoke for some time with the man… UNLIKE Rayshard – who did NOT have a lethal weapon but an irritating, stolen Taser – he waved a loaded rifle around and angrily shouted; he cursed them; he told them he had a legal right to “threaten” police officers and their families. He lived that day… Rayshard died!

    Philando also clearly told the cop that he had a Gun CARRY PERMIT and and indirectly affirmed HIS RIGHT to have a gun as he reached for his certificate… yet unlike privileged white HE DIED that day…this man was safely relieved of his weapon … mind you, unlike this man Philando had his girlfriend and their child close to him and WAS UNLIKELY to initiate ANY violent act that could endanger their lives… but alas Black Lives Don’t Matter even if a pinky is pointed, right.

    Not trying to swap stories with you… rather, will as best as possible continue like others to unmask your abject “pretzel” logic and odious verbiage. You are entitled to your opinions NOT your TWISTED FACTS!

    I watched the video put out by the police. Things seemed to be going okay until the fellow started to wrestle with the cops, got hold of the taser and fired it and missed. He then ran away with cops in hot pursuit: he then turns towards them. The cop is only being fired to placate the black population. In America ,which is basically a wild west country( gun play is the norm and it is best to get one’s shots in first or suffer the consequences), one needs a lot of faith even when some one is armed with a taser not to retaliate. It is interesting to note the reaction of the people. The business place Wendy’s had nothing to do with the shooting and it is burnt to the ground. One presumes blacks were also employed at the place. There was no waiting to ascertain facts. Strictly a case of mob rule which is not going aid blacks. After the November election, no one is going to give two farts about BLM.

    “The demands for racial justice reverberating across the United States after the police killing of George Floyd has reached the sweltering shores of the Caribbean, and is fueling new life into an old cause: the removal of monuments with colonial and racist legacies.

    Thousands of citizens are demanding the toppling of a colonial-era statue of British naval commander and slavery sympathizer Horatio Nelson in Barbados, and monuments to Christopher Columbus in the Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago.

    Online petitions, launched on Change.org, by Caribbean nationals in the three countries are gaining momentum and have received thousands of signatures in just a few days. In each case, organizers have retraced the racist legacies of Nelson and Columbus, who are memorialized in Britain’s former colonies.”

    Alleynedale plantation was known as Cabbage Tree Hall long before the Alleyne family became associated with it.

    My guess is Sir John Gay Alleyne’s (1724-1801) marriage to Mary Terrill, daughter of William Terrill is how the Alleyne family became associated with Cabbage Tree Hall and lent their name to its provenance.

    Did you know there is a field named “SIR JOHN” at what is now known as Alleynedale Plantation, formerly Cabbage Tree Hall, property of the Browne and then Terrill families?

    Looks like it wasn’t until 1816 that the plantation became the property of the Alleyne family which of course means, if you can do the math, not many years before the end of slavery.

The above statement made by you sums up the fact that you were short-changed when logic was being handed out. Let us examine your statement critically. You associate the lack of intelligence with my living on a tiny island and being the recipient of a small pension .You also make the point that I have not currently invented anything to benefit the island.

    Examining these two statements one must come to the conclusion that it is no surprise that blacks are viewed by other races as being short on grey matter. According to you, one can logically assume that all persons who live on tiny islands are not intelligent. All people who live on tiny islands get tiny pensions. The above statements are based on fallacious premises. Only an idiot could make such statements.
    All I can say is that blacks will be on the bottom of the totem pole for ever if they all think like you. Like Sir Kenneth Clarke remarked : “one does not equate Spain with “Civilization” when asked why he did not include Spain in his epic Tv documentary “Civilization.” Similarly, where intelligence is concerned, it can be said that one does not associate you with it.

    John Knox notes that “Alleynedale went into Chancery in 1816 which if you research the term, it was not making any profits.”

    This is entirely unsurprising. The obscene profits of the first century of the Barbados sugar industry had subsided by the mid eighteenth century. There was another windfall for Barbados and Jamaica in the 1790s when the Haitian revolution stopped sugar exports from there, but the writing was on the wall.

    This is, of course, why the abolition movement began to have some success in the early 19th century. The enslavement of African descended peoples simply was not as profitable as it used to be, so the enslavers extorted that enormous sum of blood money from the British exchequer in the abolition scam.

    John Knox knows this, or at least he used to, but it does not fit his White supremacy narrative; so he gives the holy White Quakers the walk on role to magically explain geopolitical economics.

    @DLP-TV, I tried y’day to make a reply to ur post re “…If some[one] running away points two fingers at an officer, is it a good reason to justify deadly force? The sad reality is that this officer MAY NOT be CONVICTED of murder because he was in “reasonable fear of his life”. The problem is in this loose application of deadly force….”

    Based on evidence known as of y’day I disagreed that there was no base case for an indictment.

    I agree that US courts have seemingly created a loose deadly force standard but despite that it’s tough to understand how a PO can consider an already ‘fired’ taser as a possibly deadly item!

    Earliest reports suggested that Rayshard fired the taser while running and missed … so in effect the one-shot device was now mostly ineffectual…

    However, the PO still discharged his gun at a man RUNNING AWAY from him and ostensibly posing absolutely no threat to him … THAT is grounds for 2nd degree or a man-slaughter charge IMHO!

    BTW note that in this case and George’s too it was the MORE experienced PO who acted with more recklessness.

    And @Donna, it obviously takes the very sharp minds of our scholar brigade to offer the grandest, hair-brainest, outer-worldly schemes.

    Not only did the POs talk with this man for 30 plus minutes and not ask about him carrying a gun or search him for one but they also scuffled with him when trying to handcuff … no gun fell from his waist band, they felt or saw none but our analytic scholarly detailed thinker can still conjure the possibility of one as a possible threat.

    He ‘misses’ nothing or ‘sees’ anything when inane lying is the focus!

    How do battle folks who can so resolutely look directly into ur face and tell u the most outrageous load of lying BS and then tell you that they are smarter than you (geniuses even) so you have to believe them!

    If we Separate the Word History we get the word Hi and Story. It is the Highlights of the Story of All of Us. Just like if you were to Describe Somebody you would give the Highlights of his Life and you would say that is the History of the man…

    Here an Excerpt History (Hi Story- Highlights) of Admiral Nelson During the Battle of Trafalgar with an Accompanying and Very Moving Video of the same.

    21st October 1805 Admiral Lord Nelson defeats a Combined French and Spanish fleet off Cape Trafalgar. During the battle he is shot and later dies of his wounds.

    When and Where was the Battle of Trafalgar?

    The Battle of Trafalgar is one of the most famous naval battles in British history. Nelson led Britain to victory over a combined French and Spanish fleet, but was shot and died during the battle.

    The Battle of Trafalgar took place on 21 October 1805 during the Napoleonic War (1803–1815), as Napoleon Bonaparte and his armies tried to conquer Europe. Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson, commanding the British fleet, devised an ambitious plan of attack, which involved ambushing the Franco-Spanish fleet off the Cape of Trafalgar, in south-west Spain. His attack was to prove a decisive victory for the British.

    The battle developed into a ferocious pounding match but the British had the advantage thanks to Nelson’s strategic pre-planning and the fact his men were better trained in delivering rapid, accurate gunnery. When firing finally ceased at 5.30pm, 17 enemy ships had been captured and another was a blazing wreck. Four managed to escape but were captured a few weeks later, and 11 managed to struggle back to Cadiz.

    A total of 449 British sailors were killed and 1217 wounded. French and Spanish losses were heavier: 4408 were dead, 2545 wounded and some 20,000 taken prisoner.

    The Battle of Trafalgar cemented Britain’s reputation as ruler of the seas and demonstrated that the Royal Navy had superiority in training, professionalism and expertise in naval tactics that set it apart from its rivals. By 1809 there were over 140,000 men serving on 732 ships, more than ever before.

    Under Nelson’s command, aboard HMS Victory, the Royal Navy sank 22 ships from the Franco-Spanish fleet without the loss of a single British vessel. This spectacular victory confirmed Britain’s naval supremacy, and was achieved, in part, due to Nelson’s departure from traditional naval tactics (which involved engaging an enemy fleet in a single line of battle parallel to the enemy) to divide his smaller force into two columns directed perpendicularly against the larger enemy fleet. Although the battle was won by the English, Lord Nelson was tragically killed by a sniper’s bullet, surviving long enough to be told of the victory.

    The formation of the Navy League in 1894 gave added impetus to the movement to recognise Nelson’s legacy, and grand celebrations were held in Trafalgar Square on Trafalgar Day, 1896. It was widely commemorated of the historic victory won by the Royal Navy, commanded by Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson, over the combined French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805.

    The British (and racists like John Knox) like to pretend that they were the first to end Atlantic enslavement of African peoples. But that is utter bullshit of course. That honour goes to the people of the the French colony of Saint Domingue (now Haiti) through the insurrection of enslaved people that began in August 1791, so it was not Quakers or White people at all who started to defeat this crime against humanity. The British were not even the first Europeans to get on the bandwagon: the first European legislative abolition of the slave trade was by Denmark; passed in 1792, but not coming into force until 1803. In 1794 the French revolutionary government in Paris confirmed emancipation, decreeing the abolition of slavery across all French colonies, although the reactionary Napoleon reinstated it 8 years later.

    Of course my Barbadian ancestors looked to the example of military heroes for inspiration, but not Nelson. They looked instead to the successful insurrection by self-liberated enslaved people against French colonial rule in Saint-Domingue, now the sovereign state of Haiti, in 1791. This is what was undoubtedly in the minds of Bussa and other Barbadian heroes in the early decades of the 19th century.

  • Louis Delgres in Guadeloupe should be required reading.

    I hiked in Guadeloupe back in the late 1990’s over the mountains starting at Vieux Forte in the South.

    The group had some problems, and split in two.

    I remember starting at 7:30 am on the third or fourth day in the mountains and reaching the next bivouac at 9:00pm.

    It was tough but a wonderful experience.

    The following day my group hiked to Trois Cretes but myself and three others got separated and had to pitch a tarpaulin along the trail to the bivouac at Trois Cretes when it got dark.

    The makeshift tent worked fine during the downpour in the night.

    The Gendarmes were out looking for us and a Rescue helicopter flew in from Martinique to help with the search.

    We saw it through the trees on the way to Trois Cretes and wondered what it was doing.

    The Gendarmes met the group at the Trois Cretes bivouac and we went down from the mountains.

    We were fine and would have continued to the North and were surprised the Gendarmes were looking for us.

    Ended up on Guadeloupe TV and in the news.

    I suspect the trail got its name because Victor Hugues, when he returned from France with the proclamation freeing all French slaves in 1794 found Guadeloupe occupied by the British.

    He landed on the south west side of the island and trekked with his soldiers to Pointe a Pitre where he defeated the British.

    Barbadians were present as well including slaves who fulfilled the role of pioneers in the military operation.

    The guillotine was used in Place de la Concorde to execute planters with Royalist tendencies but the British and Barbadians were allowed to return.

    The British West India Regiment was founded shortly afterwards primarily to combat the threat of the French.

    The memorial outside the Museum by the stables in the Garrison commemorates the names of the British Regiment who fell in the operation.

    Equivalent to the memorial to Nelson .. “Greater Love hath no man …”.

    We traversed the Victor Hugues Trail, passing Matouba where Louis Delgres died in 1802 when Napoleon sent Richepanse and an army to reinstitute slavery.

    French and English History are radically different where the West Indies are concerned.

  • SEEMS LIKE BLACK LIVES AND POLICE BRUTALITY/KILLINGS DOESN’T MATTER IN BARBADOS WITH MOST OF THE PUBLIC AND AUTHORITIES

    Grieving widow says home drums should beat first

    Selwyn Blues Knight was a black life that mattered. But while Barbadians recently took to the streets to protest in the wake of American George Floyd’s slaying by a white cop in Minneapolis, no one has agitated or marched for justice for the late barman.

    That was the position today of Knight’s widow Marleen who two days after the Caribbean Movement for Peace and Integration (CMPI) staged a march in The City against police brutality, racism and other issues, said that five years after her husband’s death allegedly at the hands of a policeman at Dash Gap, Bank Hall, St Michael, she was still waiting for justice.

    Marleen said she was still in disbelief that Barbadians marched following Floyd’s death, but did not take to the streets to call for justice for her deceased husband.

    “Home drums beat first. This is five years now that my husband has been killed and nobody ain’t come to see whether I surviving, how I doing, nothing. I don’t even hear from the lawyers.

    “But then they could be protesting for George Floyd. These things ain’t right. I can’t feel good, so I start my protest then on Facebook letting them know Selwyn Blues Knight’s life mattered also, along with his son,” the frustrated widow told Barbados TODAY at the Queen Mary Road, Bank Hall, St Michael home she once shared with her partner of 27 years.

    Police constable Everton Gittens, who is now on bail, was charged for murdering Knight and shooting his son Junior Knight, on March 15, 2015. The police officer allegedly shot the men at Dash Gap, Bank Hall, after they had chased a burglar who had stolen items from their home. That burglar was subsequently charged for his home intrusion.

    “My son still got two bullets in him, one in the buttocks that shattered, and the one that he got in the shoulder move and gone to the back of his neck. I can’t sleep comfortably. Many nights I got to get up and go and check to make sure that my child still living because I don’t know what to expect.

    “I ain’t getting no satisfaction. I ain’t getting no justice. The Attorney General [Dale Marshall] ain’t checking for me, not even the representative for out here [St Michael Central’s Arthur Holder] that never once come and sit down and have a one-on-one conversation with me,” she said.

    The newspaper vendor lamented that her life has been in turmoil since Knight’s death.

    She explained that her late husband was the sole breadwinner of the household and took responsibility for paying the majority of the bills, while she filled in the gap with what money she made from selling newspapers.

    However, the widow lamented that at this time “papers ain’t making any money”, her bills have gone into arrears and buying food has become a difficult task because of limited funds. She noted that she could only do so much with the BDS$180 she receives from the Welfare Department at times.

    “Somebody should be looking out for me because Everton Gittens was a police, or is a police. He on $200,000 bail, and most likely he getting half pay. I ain’t getting nothing. But it gine got to kill me, because I ain’t giving up.

    “I can’t do nothing about my husband because he dead and gone. But I got my son and he got two young children. Suppose he die? What will happen to them and what will happen to me? I don’t have no back-up,” she said.

    Close to tears, a grieving Marleen said in addition to not having her husband to support her through the serious health challenges she is currently experiencing, she felt that her husband’s case was taking too long to come to trial. She went as far as to question whether her humble social status was a factor.

    “For the way how I see things going, like them want me to forget about it, but I can’t forget about it. If them want to keep Everton Gittens, keep Everton Gittens. Give me a settlement then that I could live and let me move on with my life,” she said, adding her son could die as a result of the shifting bullet in his body and should be compensated in the interest of his children.

    With much passion in her voice, Marleen also voiced concerns about Government’s intention to lay a Black Lives Matter (BLM) resolution in Parliament this week, as was announced by Minister of Environment Trevor Prescod at last Saturday’s protest.

    “That is only because of George Floyd. What about the ones here? But I got to stand up and represent me, my husband and my son. And if I got to do it alone, so be it.”

    The tears now rolling down her cheeks, the grandmother of seven said that seven months ago she was thrown into a state of mourning once again when her son Jomo Savoury committed suicide following a period of depression.

    She said Jomo’s death was yet another blow particularly because he was the person she leaned on for support. Marleen is now faced with having to repay the money she borrowed to take care of Jomo’s funeral arrangements.

    “And people walking about talking about justice. It got to start from home. You can’t bring in somebody from outside and want justice when you ain’t giving nobody where you live justice.

    “He knows how he bills gine get paid, while I got to be scratching my head studying which part I will get something to eat, how the bills gine get paid. This is wrong. The Government should be helping me in some way. I am 64 and if I could work as I would like, well so be it, but I can’t work. I got to get knee replacement now,” she said.

    “. . . I need help. I don’t know if them want me to bow down to them and beg them like a dog, but I ain’t doing it. You see how much money George Floyd ‘get’ in the States? What I getting? I ain’t getting nothing. So tell me, what is the sense that them marching for George Floyd and Barbados in the same predicament because nothing ain’t gine change. I waiting to see this Black Lives Matter resolution,” she added. anestahenry@barbadostoday.bb
