Bajan Black Lives Then and Now

Submitted by Roslyn Stanherd

The fervent tone of most of the panellists supporting the removal of Lord Nelson’s statute on the Sunday July 12, 2020 programme, ‘The Peoples Business’ muted that of the sole panellist against its removal.  There was a lot of emotion, stated positions but no balance view on why the statute should be removed.  Research was necessary to determine fact from fiction and emotion from material evidence.

Lord Nelson shared via his writings, his ‘old-school’ views of a profitable British colonial system dependent on the slave trade, i.e., supporting money for the plantation owners and death for thousands of slaves.  Production was of prime importance to plantation owners who had mortgages to pay. The common practice therefore was for slave owners to deliberately work slaves to death via overwork, poor nutrition, poor work conditions, brutality, and disease simply because it was cheaper to replace slaves every 7 years than to feed them properly.  The high death rate among the Barbados slave population in the 1770s is evidenced by the annual importation of the 5,000 slaves necessary to increase the population by 700 per year. Therefore, slave owners by their actions bring into question the validity of the contention that Lord Nelson’s sinking of ships carrying food including bread fruit to the islands caused the death of thousands of slaves.  Sugar cane was a land intensive crop that required plantations used most of the arable land. With few exceptions, slaves were only allowed to cultivate food crops on rubble land but were granted limited time to do so. Owners did import costly foodstuff but they rationed these with a stingy hand. It was the Amelioration Act of 1798 which forced planters to improve conditions for slaves.

Yes, he spoke of his support for slave owners and the slave trade but was Lord Nelson overtly or privately racist.  Evidence suggests otherwise. He helped secure the release of slaves, hired ex slaves, paid them well and supported the idea that plantation slaves should be replaced by freed, paid industrious Chinese workers.

Finally, his success at the Battle of Trafalgar created the conditions that supported the British abolitionists.  Now in control of the seas, the British adhered to the abolition of slavery capturing 1600 slave ships and freeing around 150,000 slaves.

Whether we choose to learn our full history or err on the side of emotion is left to us.

The Sunday Nation of July 12, 2020 article ‘Black Lives in the Spotlight’ by Colville Mounsey addressed realities centred around the position “that elements of our historical starting points still shape the Barbadian economic power structure’.  This balanced article provided a contra position that was interesting, in that it might remind one of the American constitution which informs that all men are created equal, yet generations of blacks continue to be marginalized. The article is worth the read.

From my Barbados experience, though black business people had limited experience running businesses, they all had good ideas.  Unfortunately, they were naive always expecting business to be good and never planning for worst case scenarios.  Their mindsets prevented them from being responsive to situations which hampered businesses growth and development. In addition, money to cover business lags was not every easily accessible and most of them failed.

Retail banks and credit unions are usually wary of startups. Most of the local companies once providing funding to businesses as well as offering much needed advice and guidance are no longer in operation. A business plan along with collateral security are prerequisites for obtaining loans but whites and Indians have the option of obtaining financial handouts and other material support from family and friends something that is a rarity for blacks. In addition, the long preparatory process inclusive of financial assessment  can open doors for ideas to be subtly and overtly sabotaged.

Even at the end of a successful black businessman life cycle there is generally no succession plan for the handover of the business to a competent offspring. A failed black business most often means a loss of property/ies with black people poorer for it. Successful black businessmen also fail on a macro level in that they do not transfer key business information and knowledge via offers of support and guidance to start ups.

Then there’s this; the A students work for private enterprise, the B students for Government and the C for themselves, with the later typically starting at an early age.  There is no need to guess the categories preferred by black people.

My response is not analytical because there’s little evidence to support the perceptions and questions raised by those who doubt that black businesses are disadvantaged.  It is an area that should be investigated/researched.  Meanwhile, successful black businessmen should develop strategies to offer support to startup businesses.


  • David,

    That is the best and most honest thing that Trump has ever done.

    Mitch McConnell and nearly all of the Republicans should also stay away as they are totally committed to suppressing the black vote. John Lewis nearly lost his life fighting for that vote.

    This is real, the disrespect directed at a Black man by the president of the USA, a man who epitomized the struggle of Black people. This is at a time when the #blm exposes the racial conflict in US society. This man can kiss the blogmaster’s Black ass.


  • @David
    What disrespect? Who cares? He won’t be missed but McCain didn’t want him at his funeral, when he went to Bush 41 funeral he looked as uncomfortable as a man in too tight shoes and a borrowed suit.

    Let him do what he does best – apropos of nothing exclaiming “I just wish her well” of accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

    @David, protocols and traditional platitudes are for sane, reasonably well adjusted humans… the bloggers are correct: this POTUS is not such… he was not welcomed and did the right thing to stay away!

    This is a man who mocked a physically challenged man on a campaign stage, who called a POW who suffered painful torture ‘not his kind of hero’ simply because they had policy and moral disagreements … he has debased the office of the presidency with his petty, indecent, crass antics and there is absolutely NO prestige or honour in having this man attend your final home-going service … NONE!

    John Lewis and his family were likely not as forthright as John McCain’s in demanding g he MOT attend …. but WHY would Lewis want a man he considers an illegitimate POTUS and to whose inauguration he REFUSED to attend to ‘sit shiva’ on his behalf.

    It’s all good… @Donna is right it’s one of “the best and most honest thing[s] that Trump has ever done.”

    Let him go and throw out that 1st pitch for the Yankee baseball game -to which he invited himself so that he doesn’t feel less of a man because Dr. Faucie was actually invited before him to do those honours the first day of this abbreviated baseball season… Oh wait he disinvited himself … as he has a pandemic to continue to mismanage !

    A petty and puerile potus to the end!


  • @Dee Word

    The bigger issue is, we have the President of the USA engaged in a behaviour that serves to fuel divisive behaviour in the population. Whether Lewis family wants him at the funeral is irrelevant. It is about how the office of the president is being diluted when the holder of the office diminishes it by his action. The damage that is being done to the progress of mankind.


  • Tom Cotton calls slavery ‘necessary evil’ in attack on New York Times’ 1619 Project

    Senator wants to ‘save’ US history from New York Times

    Cotton, widely seen as a possible presidential candidate in 2024, made the comment in an interview with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette published on Sunday.
    He was speaking in support of legislation he introduced on Thursday that aims to prohibit use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project, an initiative from the New York Times that reframes US history around August 1619 and the arrival of slave ships on American shores for the first time.
    Cotton’s Saving American History Act of 2020 and “would prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project by K-12 schools or school districts”, according to a statement from the senator’s office.

    “The entire premise of the New York Times’ factually, historically flawed 1619 Project … is that America is at root, a systemically racist country to the core and irredeemable,” Cotton told the Democrat-Gazette.
    “I reject that root and branch. America is a great and noble country founded on the proposition that all mankind is created equal. We have always struggled to live up to that promise, but no country has ever done more to achieve it.”
    He added: “We have to study the history of slavery and its role and impact on the development of our country because otherwise we can’t understand our country. As the Founding Fathers said, it was the necessary evil upon which the union was built, but the union was built in a way, as [Abraham] Lincoln said, to put slavery on the course to its ultimate extinction.”
    Nikole Hannah-Jones, who was awarded this year’s Pulitzer Prize for commentary for her introductory essay to the 1619 Project, said on Friday that Cotton’s bill “speaks to the power of journalism more than anything I’ve ever done in my career”.
    On Sunday, she tweeted: “If chattel slavery – heritable, generational, permanent, race-based slavery where it was legal to rape, torture, and sell human beings for profit – were a ‘necessary evil’ as Tom Cotton says, it’s hard to imagine what cannot be justified if it is a means to an end.
    “Imagine thinking a non-divisive curriculum is one that tells black children the buying and selling of their ancestors, the rape, torture, and forced labor of their ancestors for PROFIT, was just a ‘necessary evil’ for the creation of the ‘noblest’ country the world has ever seen.
    “So, was slavery foundational to the Union on which it was built, or nah? You heard it from Tom Cotton himself.”
    Cotton responded: “More lies from the debunked 1619 Project. Describing the views of the Founders and how they put the evil institution on a path to extinction, a point frequently made by Lincoln, is not endorsing or justifying slavery. No surprise that the 1619 Project can’t get facts right.”
    In June, the Times was forced to issue a mea culpa after publishing an op-ed written by Cotton and entitled “Send in the troops”. The article, which drew widespread criticism, advocated for the deployment of the military to protests against police brutality toward black Americans.
    Times publisher AG Sulzberger initially defended the decision, saying the paper was committed to representing “views from across the spectrum”.
    But the Times subsequently issued a statement saying the op-ed fell short of its editorial standards, leading to the resignation of editorial page director James Bennet.


  • de pedantic Dribbler

    @Mr. Blogmaster you have teed up an good reference for further debate… Sen Cotton by this inane attempt to offer a bill that so clumsily displays his racist underpinnings has guaranteed that this 1619 project and the ever growing civil rights/BLM protests will continue to batter the US mind-scape for many more months… his hypocrisy guarantees further definitive positive action !

    Firstly, not many were aware of this comprehensive historical review by NYT journalists/historians etc and his attack will bring more awareness and study of the series of well researched essays/articles which paints the history of slavery differently than previously recounted.

    The senator is very, very disingenuous … in fact he should be very careful of calling others ‘liars’.

    He opines that “We have to study the history of slavery and its role and impact on the development of our country because otherwise we can’t understand our country” and then balances that with “the Founding Fathers said, it was the necessary evil upon which the union was built, but the union was built in a way, as [Abraham] Lincoln said, to put slavery on the course to its ultimate extinction.”

    Wordsmithing NONSENSE or otherwise said, a lie … based on omission of reasoning.

    At the birth of the USA slavery was firmly institutionalized and Black men and women were mere chattel… that evil was absolutely not necessary so how can he hide behind such trifling words… Lincoln came along almost a 100 years later so to suggest that he so dramatically put slavery on a path to extinction and apparently therefore thereby absolved the leaders prior and since of the systematic destruction and dehumanizing of Black folks is insane!

    His logic is tantamount to an absurdity … only HIS twisted facts are valid …. and thus he wants to PREVENT schools from teaching a more accurate interpretation of those narratives!

    May he and those like him (POTUS et al) be found out for what they truly are and be defeated at the polls, in the courts and on the streets of protests too!

    What it shows is the different view most Whites view slavery to compare with Blacks. Accept who is respinsifor recording history for that period and you appreciate the challenge for many processing our true history.




    It appears that Mr Woods is being threatened. He is on someone’s enemy list…

    An enemies list??? I am not calling names. I am calling for an investigation.


    “We will have an opportunity to retool, retrain, refashion, upscale, reposition, restrategize and create new tactical approaches so that by the time international travel gets going again, Barbados we’re hoping, along with the exceptional team here at the Ministry and those who will come on board and add voice and perspective to this issue, that Barbados will emerge in a space that we could not have anticipated as a result of the challenging time that forced us to be at our most innovative.”

    Slavery 2.0 – Part 5.

    We have come to the end of this series of research articles on Nelson. Thank you for reading. The articles had two purposes. The first is to show how difficult it is to oppose popular culture. The second is to teach that regardless how polarising an issue is, we should never invent evidence to support any side of an argument.

    Once we reject this teaching, and are willing be misled with proven invented evidence, then we become mentally enslaved, as described by David Comissiong. That type of enslavement is sustainable, when we convince the next generation that truth is not determined by evidence and reason, but by those who shout the loudest.


    Nelson lived in a time when racism was popular, and the slave trade was legal. Yet, he went against the popular culture by paying and promoting sailors of all races equally. When politicians were opposing the slave trade, Nelson was opposing slavery itself. Nelson probably freed more slaves outside of the US, than any other person during that time. In return, our activists label him a racist white supremacist.

    In our lifetime, slavery is illegal, but it is still being practised. As it was in Nelson’s time, the worst form of slavery is still sex-slavery. Sex-slaves are now an investment. They are forced into prostitution, and into making pornography, so that their ‘owners’ can be paid.

    By 2010, Barbados become a transit location for sex-slaves [1]. Like the traders of Nelson’s day, the Government benefits from the taxes slavers pay, as they force their victims through our ports.

    There are some countries that facilitate the lucrative sex-slavery trade, and do not care who knows about it. There are other countries who want the financial benefits of sex-slavery, but do not want to tarnish their reputations. So, they only pretend to do something about it.

    Some spend years doing: educational lectures, sensitization workshops, awareness training, planning meetings, legislative changes, and a host of such activities. But they never charge, prosecute, or convict a single person.


    A country that does not prosecute slavers, advertises to the world that sex-slavery is de-facto legal. Barbados was not like that. In 2016, Barbados passed the Trafficking in Persons Prevention Act, to show the world that we were serious about prosecuting slavers.

    Every person who plans, transports, or assists the trafficking of persons within Barbados, or across our borders, is liable to a fine of $1M and/or a 25-year prison sentence [2]. If the victim is a child, then the slaver is liable to a fine of $2M and/or life imprisonment [3]. The courts may order that restitution be paid to victims of sex-slavery.

    If a slaver takes the victim’s passport or airline ticket, they are liable to a fine of $250,000 and/or 20 years imprisonment [4]. If a company is involved, then the company is liable to a fine of $5M [5]. Consent is not a defence, neither is the victim’s past sexual behaviour [6]. There is no good reason to enslave another person.

    In Barbados, victims are to receive: protection, housing, education, counselling, legal assistance, medical assistance, living expenses, and assistance getting to a safe destination [7]. They can also live and work in Barbados for the duration of the prosecution of their enslavers [8].

    Such laws should signal to slavers that Barbados is too risky a place to traffic persons. However, an opposite signal appears to have been sent. The slavers take their victims through our ports with impunity, thinking that they will never be prosecuted – because we are only pretending.

    In 2017, Barbados was identified as being a transit country for child sex-slavery. Barbados was also identified as doing little to address this serious problem [9]. Our refusal to do anything meaningful about child sex-slavery, has landed us on the Trafficking in Persons Report’s Tier 2 Watch List [10]. We can now rub shoulders with countries, where child sex-slavery also appears to be tolerated.


    If we cared about the reputation of our tourism industry, the very least that we should do, is to install large posters in the arrivals’ section of our ports. The posters should clearly inform victims of their rights, and slavers of their liabilities. Unfortunately, in modern Barbados, that simple action takes many years of action-delaying meetings and seminars.

    So, what have we done about sex-slavery in our generation? Have we used our influence on social media to advocate for their release? Have we used our political influence to stop the practise in Barbados? No. Instead, like the racists of Nelson’s time, we ridicule those who are on the right side of this popular culture.

    We are afraid to tell our political leaders to enforce the law on sex-slavery. We are ashamed to encourage our friends to stop supporting it. We demand our right to access sex-slaves at clubs and on the Internet. We give our children smart devices, with no pornographic filters, that allows them easy access to sex-slaves – and we do not care.

    Nelson hated corruption, unfairness, and all types of slavery, and did what he could to oppose those things in his generation [11]. Nelson also hated the hypocrisy of political agents when they debated slavery. Perhaps that is the real reason why today’s hypocrites hate Nelson so much.

  • If he has proof that these people in the clubs are not coming willingly he needs to hand it over. I never heard of children being trafficked here. That is news to me. I know some Bajan children are basically used by their parents as sex workers. Does it get reported? The facility is there.

    (I know both Birch and Ranny)

    Then read this and figure out your place on the totem pole.

    In this study, it was observed that majority of these workers suffered from different types of respiratory complications, such as a cough, asthma and lung infections. In addition to this, few subjects showed allergy and other complication like hypertension, diabetes and backache. Moreover, cytological analysis of the sputum was made, and it was observed that majority of the subjects showed severe inflammation.

    Based on these finding, we concluded that long-term cement dust exposure and inhalation causes respiratory complications due to epithelial tissue damage and that can lead to secondary complications as well.”

    “Silicosis is an interstitial lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica, a common mineral found in many types of rock and soil. Over time, exposure to silica particles causes permanent lung scarring, called pulmonary fibrosis.

    Key Facts
    Approximately 2.3 million U.S. workers are exposed to silica in the workplace, including 2 million in construction and 300,000 in other industries.
    When silica dust enters the lungs, it causes inflammation which over time leads to the development of scar tissue that makes breathing difficult.
    Cigarette smoking adds to the lung damage caused by silicosis. Quitting smoking is an important part of managing the disease.
    Complications from silicosis can include tuberculosis, lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, autoimmune disorders and kidney disease
    There is no cure for silicosis, but treatment is available, and employers and workers can take steps to prevent it.


  • According to the brothers Arawak cleaned the residents’ homes twice a week (1998-2018) at least that is an acknowledgement that it was contributing negatively to the environment and the residents’ enjoyment of their homes. There is a new Minister of the Environment, that file should be on his desk first thing in the morning.

    BTW when the residents of Lower Estate complained about Cherry’s dump they got results

    Many hands make light work 😊


  • THeOGazertsJuly 29, 2020 9:24 PM

    Obviously the long term solution is either relocation of affected residents by Arawak, or the total elimination of dust particle emissions by the plant.

    One would expect that with modern technology, the second could be improved in filtration etc. This needs to be done, if not the first and surely more expensive option, that of the relocation of hundreds of homes, would be necessary.

    Let us be real. These corporates do not give a hoot about the average citizen. They are only concerned with the dividends and repatriating profits (and thereto foreign exchange) elsewhere.

    Along with the discussion on racism, on treating every man justly, where of African, European or Asian descent as a human being and a person first, in all ways, there also needs to be a discussion on where Barbados needs to go as a nation.

    Do we wish a country where the citizens are beggars to the corporates, to fight for bread on a daily basis, or be assured of shelter, food and healthcare as a human right?

    Corporates should be a valuable part of a society and economy, but the society should not be servants of the corporates, nor should there be a elite few who suck the economy dry, while the majority suffer. This point is not unique to Barbados, as it is evident that the capitalist model is failing, especially under the far right leadership of the USA, as it stands.

    It is interesting that the likes of Gonsalves began their careers as left wing activists, but have now become champions of the capitalist way. Animal Farm much?

    The glaring factor throughout all of the current issues of national importance is the integrity of the players. The integrity or lack thereof.

    Whether it is the politicians e.g. the Guyana elections, the corporates who are putting profits above their stakeholders i.e. workers and society and the fight for civil rights worldwide. It is all about integrity and morals.

    Ironic, that at a time when technology has advanced so far, when we should be able to address issues of concern with changes in available means, that the real challenge remains one of intent and not really of ability. Intent as driven by individual integrity and morality.

    Sure, the pandemic has challenged our ability to keep activity functioning. But that is a technical matter, to be addressed by the scientists and medical fraternity, plus public health services.

    The real challenge remains one of morality. The lack of integrity by many players is appalling. This applies equally to those in public administration as well as corporate operations.

    Unfortunately, both the push by far right extremists in the USA, who have their own sympathisers in places such as Barbados, make no mistake on that and the increasing extension of China’s influence, are making the issues even more complex and accelerating the possibility of conflict, both domestically in certain countries and internationally.

    While I give explanation of issues, I also give solutions. The only solution is twofold. One part is the availability of and push by leaders with integrity and the second, vigilance and activism on the part of community leaders and citizens.

    Calm and measured leadership is essential at this time. For this, I do hope that the Democrats win the November election, the alternative will likely result in a further decline in stability and the outcome of conflict.

    These events also emphasise the need for international organisations to take the lead on global affairs and that such affairs not be left to the vagaries of individual governments and their idiosyncrasies.


  • Nonsense. The long-term solution is not to relocate the residents. It is to close the plant. We must stop allowing these business people to run our country. This is a serious health and safety issue. Where are the occupational doctors? Where are our lawyers acting pro bono for the people? Where is the opposition? Where are our campaigners, such as David Denny and David Commissiong? Where are the trade unions?


  • @Hal, I cannot disagree that one solution is closing the plant, or relocating. But why is relocation not an option?

    This plant has been there for years. How many of these homes were built post plant? Just a question. Such a plant needs to be near offshore, to ensure that the residual dust blows offshore. If you wish to it, then does the country import cement, more forex going?

    I agree that there needs to be action, but it needs to be balanced.


  • The area is either a residential area or a commercial one. I do not know the area, but I am sure that there were private residences there before the cement plant. The economics (or promised economics) of the plants over-rode the health and safety of the residents. As a public policy issue, the contribution of the plant to the economy (jobs, revenue, etc) must be taken in to consideration, but also is the long-term health of local residents.
    It was a bad planning decision and historically planning has always been the portfolio of the prime minister of the day. Why are the authorities not speaking out?
    I am all for balance, but dust contaminated the atmosphere is far worse than anything the internal combustion engine can do. But, then again, this government pays lip service to the environment but does nothing.


  • Grenville needs to explain himself for parroting specious British whataboutery arguments about slavery and cutting and pasting Nelson foundation for his ‘research’. Sex trafficking is not same as slavery. Nearly every black person in Caribbean and Americas is an African slave descendant. British racism continued with their Colonialism and after ‘stopping slavery’ they started Opium Wars in China and Colonised Africa. They still abused people to do their work in plantations, building railways etc throughout their empire and implemented racial segregation thinking they are superior and more sophisticated than non-whites. The Black Princess was discriminated against in the Queens Court and was deemed a danger because she was popular with the people.

  • The End Justifies the Means.

    A group of US doctors claimed to have successfully treated their COVID-19 patients. They claimed to have used a combination of drugs that included Hydroxychloroquine.

    The role of journalists includes investigating claims. Instead, they are smearing the doctors. Our local cyber-bullies are playing their part in the international smear campaign.

    Since the US President suggested that Hydroxychloroquine should be examined as a potential treatment, the drug got politicised. For purely political reasons, a campaign was started to discredit this drug.

    On 16 May 2020, one of the most prestigious medical journals, The Lancet, took the partisan approach of opposing Trump in its editorial. It concluded “Americans must put a president in the White House come January, 2021, who will understand that public health should not be guided by partisan politics.” [1]

    Less than one week later (22 May 2020), The Lancet published a peer-reviewed study discrediting Hydroxychloroquine as ineffective and unsafe [2]. This led to the World Health Organisation stopping global Hydroxychloroquine trials, to treat COVID-19. The US media promoted this study as the nail in the Hydroxychloroquine coffin.


    Since truth will eventually prevail, The Lancet’s peer-reviewed study was found to be full of fake science, and retracted [2]. But the campaign against Hydroxychloroquine did not stop. The US media ridiculed any doctor, or politician who spoke favourably about Hydroxychloroquine, as not ‘listening to the science’.

    We are living in an age where our medical and media professionals, are eager to sacrifice their professional integrity for political reasons. This is an especially dangerous time for COVID-19 patients, who are to become collateral damage.

    The reason for the surge in fake news and fake science coming out of the US, is the upcoming Presidential election. With their journalists and academics, the end justifies the means.

    As is normally the case, the truth may be found among those who are willing to present their evidence for public scrutiny – which is what the doctors appeared willing to do.

    Truth is unlikely to be found among biased US journalists and academics. This is because their singular aim is to support one political party, by any means necessary. Which party?

    Approximately 96% of US journalists’ campaign contributions go to Democrat candidates [3]. Also, about 80% to 100% of major university employees’ campaign contributions go to Democrat candidates [4].

    This bias appears to have a significant effect on the performance of journalists. The Pew Research Centre proved ultra-biased political coverage in favour of Democratic candidates [5].

    It is easy to get swept-up in the US media bias. However, it is important to understand that they have a specific agenda – that they seem willing to justify misleading the public to achieve.

    Was Obama a descendant of slavery?



    Trans Saharan Slave Trade.

    Ancestors probably sold slaves to Arab traders.

    “The Arab slave trade originated before Islam and lasted more than a millennium.[25][26][27] Arab traders brought Africans across the Indian Ocean from present-day Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania,[28] Eritrea, Ethiopia and elsewhere in East Africa to present-day Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, Somalia, Turkeyand other parts of the Middle East[29] and South Asia (mainly Pakistan and India). Unlike the trans-Atlantic slave trade to the New World, Arabs supplied African slaves to the Muslim world, which at its peak stretched over three continents from the Atlantic to the Far East.”


  • @ DofBU

    Can you stop flaming people with Grenville’s nonsense please, cease and desist, cut it in the bud


  • Like

  • Al Sharpton got bent all outta shape when Obama came on the scene because he figures Obama had not come through the crucible of slavery in America and was not qualified as he was to run for President.

    Almost certainly however, his ancestry practically guarantees he was involved in the slave trade, as a slaver.


  • “his ancestry .. guarantees .. slave trade .. slaver”

    Johnny boy wonder the beige bajan troll boy is masturbating* again on the net

    (*) called having a wank in english


  • This train a righteous train


  • Is Obama still President?


  • Well, there you go! Finally Grenville’s most gentlemanly supporter TheO has arrived at the place where this “hater and cyberbully” resided from the days of the “Buy your Casket” offering.


    That story went against all common sense and was therefore FAKE.

    That Grenville is also a clown has become more and more obvious until finally people can no longer adhere to their gentlemanly training.

    I suspected he was such from his very first offering but being more “genteel” than Piece (and that really is not hard) I gave him the benefit of the doubt for a little while, knowing that the truth would be revealed in due course.

    Thankfully, I have never been fazed by the barbs of those who berate me for telling the truths their “broughtupsy” has taught them not to perceive or admit.

    This rebel thinks for herself and never needed permission nor approval.

    These are “the worst of times” and these can also be transformed into “the best of times”. I always thought that Dicken’s opening line to be the most thought provoking I have ever read.

    This is a time when we need to examine all that we have been taught and clean out the rubbish.

    This is a time for questioning and challenging norms and conventions and traditions and the way it has “always been done”.

    The only way we can build a new world is to build new people. WE are the building blocks.

    And before I give the impression that I think I have nothing to examine and change, let me assure you that the challenges of my son (who everybody gleefully informs me is just like me whenever I complain) have already changed me and will continue to do so.

    The world is in labour, trying to birth a new child.

    I found my labour to be very painful but it was the best thing I ever did. I now look at my son and think how motherhood has made me a better person.

    And I tell my labour story and smile.

    Yup! Having a wank in the queen’s English!

    PS. His idol just saw the job numbers and is suggesting delaying the election.

    The man wants the election delayed until he has time to fix the economy. Fool does not understand that if he had managed the virus better he would’t be in this position.

    He does not understand that a president plays the hand he is dealt and is judged accordingly

    He actually expects people to say that he was doing well before the infortunate China virus hit.

    He does not understand that crisis is part of every president’s life and it is his/her job to manage it.

    Truly a very stable genius with a playbook borrowed from the 1950s, promising white suburban housewives/moms to keep their neighbourhoods free of low income housing (translated black criminals and white woman rapists). But the white suburban housewives/moms are on the streets marching for the black “criminals” and “rapists”.

    The times they are a-changing!


  • Correction -UNfortunate


  • Perhaps Grenville should stick to Engineering


  • Thanks for the 6:18 a.m. post.

    It seems as if we are in a circuitous loop where the same problem appears again and again. The militancy required to create a proper response to these injustices is lacking. I can why a fellow would be unwilling to make the extra step over the line. He/she reasons “if they were so harsh on that guy for a loaf of bread, what do you think they will do with me.” But until one man is willing to mek a jail for his rights nothing will change.

    It is difficult to know if our agitation solves anything. No thanks were ever expressed, but it appears that the BU brigade may have save a fellow from being washed away (warned to say nothing orhe was washed away).


  • Meanwhile the smartest man on BU ponders such questions as “Who own the land that nelson statue is on?”

    and informs us on Obama’s role as a slaver
    “Almost certainly however, his ancestry practically guarantees he was involved in the slave trade, as a slaver.”

    I cannot wait for his explanation on why socks go missing in the washer.

    What borrowed from the 1950s? Nothing new here he is going back to what he and his father did in keeping Black people from their apartment buildings, “low income” is a substitute for black people, there is no dog whistle anymore the dog barking loud and clear.

  • Herman Cain black businessman and one time Republican Presidential candidate who contracted COVID19 after attending Trump’s Tulsa rally has died.


  • One black stooge dead! You beat me to the post, Sarge! One less ignorant sellout Trump supporting black man!

    I did know about his and his father’s “NO N***gers allowed housing policies.

    But….. the funeral of a teal tough guy is about to begin. I cannot miss the reading of his letter to America, written while he contemplated his impending death.

    Passing the baton. It was a good time for him to die. It will create a pause and think moment and then add fuel to the fire of the movement.


  • I am sure you you have the same opinion of Alveda King, From what I sense from you is even though your labor was painful it probably paled to those that were around you.. Sorry going upstairs for a movement


  • Correct, remember that his daddy was arrested at a KKK rally in New Yawk.

    For sure Trump is representing the white supremacists, with the urging of Evangelical madman Pence too.

    I see various minority people still supporting them, not just the Republican Uncle Toms, but regular people, have to say, just a special kind of stupid.

    As for the Uncle Toms like that doctor fellow, it really gets across some inkling of how they were seen and despised in the past. Like WT?.

    I keep remembering Sam L. Jackson’s brilliant portrayal of Stephen the ‘Uncle Tom’ right hand in Django Unchained.


  • As for that statue in Heroes Sq erected by the few plantation owners and privileged of the time, get rid of it.

    Time to stop the long talk. Put Bussa there instead.


  • @Crusoe

    The Emancipation Statue is already strategically located at Haggatt Hall.


  • Noted. I would have thought that an even better place would be Heroes Square.


  • Still with the drunken so-called jokes. And yes it was a challenge for those present at my son’s birth. The professionals insisted I must give birth lying down but I could not take that. I felt better sitting up. They insisted. I refused. The father to be tried to hold me down. I bit him where I could reach. Turned out to be his nipple. He hollered and let go. Long story cut short, child was born perfectly fine in quick time and the professionals now know what they should always have known – there is more than one way to give birth. There is life outside the European text books. Africans often give birth squatting.

    So yes, I do tend to make people uncomfortable both naturally and deliberately. I find it necessary.

    Unfortunately my small efforts at getting into “good trouble” pale way into insignificance when compared to people like John Lewis.

    Never have I been envious of a man who grew up poor, was jailed forty times, got his head busted and his body bruised, beaten and bloodied more than once and died riddled with cancer.

    What a life he lived and what a difference he made!

    Poor me!


  • de pedantic Dribbler

    @G Phillips or to the Blogmaster rather … you present GPII’s essay’s here to provoke discussion but he no longer debates/discusses them, so this retort is really to you.

    “A group of US doctors claimed to have successfully treated their COVID-19 patients. They claimed to have used a combination of drugs that included Hydroxychloroquine […] Since the US President suggested that Hydroxychloroquine should be examined as a potential treatment, the drug got politicised. For purely political reasons, a campaign was started to discredit this drug.”

    Phillips, blames the media for a smear campaign but has absolutely no qualms himself…smearing EVERYONE else with HIS half-truths. …. THE POTUS has politicized the drug hydroxychloroquine by making unsubstantiated clams about its efficacy.

    We know that all patient-doctor advice is governed by what is best for the patient, therefore if hydrox.. is a valid medication then so determine between the doc and the user.

    However, the drug has NOT been proven to work as expected in all controlled studies completed and therefore it was only approved on an emergency basis by the CDC. With that in mind, NO politician – particularly the very powerful POTUS – should be UNDERMINING a national pandemic response by publicly heralding un-proven cures … to do as he did is to POLITICIZE the drug…… He is the culprit NOT the MEDIA.

    —-“We are living in an age where our medical and media professionals, are eager to sacrifice their professional integrity for political reasons.[…] The reason for the surge in fake news and fake science coming out of the US, is the upcoming Presidential election. With their journalists and academics, the end justifies the means.

    This is an astonishing display of hypocrisy where the perpetrator is presented as the victim! Utterly flimsy BS.

    It was the POTUS who started this surge in FAKERY when he stood before the world and lied about his inauguration crowd size…HE demanded a govt agency doctor photos to validate his lies; HE demanded his press secretary speak his lies to the world… IT is his WH adviser who advised the world about HIS ‘alternative facts’.

    So let’s be crystal clear… the upcoming election is NOT the reason for the fake news and fake science … it must be the DEFINING RESULT about who started it. We need to get back to sanity and not the mad-science of the man who also told the world : “… I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute, and is there a way you can do something like that by injection inside, or almost a cleaning.”

    “It is easy to get swept-up in the US media bias. However, it is important to understand that they have a specific agenda – that they seem willing to justify misleading the public to achieve.”

    For all the liberal or leaning liberal media houses like CNN, Huffington Post, NYT, Washington Post and NPR to name a few there are equally a number (and often with a better REACH of public viewers/listeners).. like Fox, American Spectator, National Review, The Federalist, WSJ etc.

    More important is that there is such grave competition in the media space that there has been significant mergers and acquisitions which have seen conservative and conservative leaning ownership of large numbers of local, regional and national publications/radio/media sites. It is DISINGENUOUS and almost a down-right falsehood to suggest that right-wing voices do not have an outsize impact that is likely greater than – and certainly equal to – the liberal voices in media!

    In short, Mr. Grenville Phillips II the Chartered Structural Engineer and of President of Solutions Barbados just essayed an excellent piece of FAKE NEWS with his lovely references and Alternative Facts…. it’s all bout this US President who is FULL of FAKERY!

  • @Dee Word

    There is no appetite to respond on behalf of Grenville, his submission was updated to the blog in a comments box as received in the inbox.


  • Cuhdear Bajan,

    Yuh calling Grenville a duppy? He may be brain dead but that is more like a zombie!


  • Only 6% of black women voted for Trump, the lowest percentage of any group in the United State. The idiots who have brought out Immanuel don’t know that we black women, especially we black working class women are not anywhere as stupid as they would like us to be.

    If other Americans had voted like black women, Donald Trump would not have become President of the United States, there would not now to 4,461,465 Americans sickened with covid, there would not be 151,451 Americans dead from covid, mostly white people, and the American economy would not now be in a tail spin.


  • Here I was saying that Obama couldn’t match the other speakers that spoke of the past. I should have known better!

    I thought all that was left was for him to speak to the present and what is necessary for future.

    Bam! He smashed it!

    He declared war, and ultimately peace…. even if the racists don’t know it yet!


  • Yes donna your description sounds a lot like the chest buster scene out of the Alien movie which I for one am not surprised , but you dodged my question on Alveda King ….she liked herman cain ..There seems to be a lot of older black men dying arthur cain cummings lewis etc how can a hag like rbg keep clinging on and all these fellas fall away in short order.


  • Cuhdear Bajan,

    But did not the Bible imply that a man should not allow a woman to lead in the decision – making???

    For we were and I presume ARE, more susceptible to the DECEPTION of Satan???


    Yuh see why I could never swallow the Bible whole???


  • cudhear 151000 covid deaths mostly white people, are you suggesting that blacks are under performing, whites are taking all the hospital beds or that new york and new jersey with there near 50000 deaths are 1/3 of the 50 states are totally incompetant.


  • Never heard of Alveda King.

    PS. My baby was born beautiful as was his mother although he could have passed for a white child. Thankfully the sun has done its work and he is now identifiable as my child.

    Nothing alien looking about us. Don’t picture regular aliens with beautiful skin like ours. They are usually mottled or speckled like you.

    PS. I understand from my mother that I was 1st runner up in a cute baby contest IN ENGLAND in the 1960s. I refused to enter my baby in any such frivolity even though I was urged to do so. Beauty contests are not consistent with my values.


  • Lawson all I am suggesting is that there are more white people than black people in the united states.

    In addition all I am suggesting is that if black men and white men and women had followed thee lead of black women the United States would have been saved a lot of grief and a lot of money.

    We all like happiness and money, nor so?


  • And LIFE! We like living! This evil orange moron is killing people!

    PS. If you are looking for an alien I think your Agent Orange looks very much like one. UGLY!


  • Dorian Gray without the mirror!


  • Cudhear we can agree on a few things, the govenors of ny and new jersey are the worst… have allowed the most deaths returning people with covid to retirement residences was total incompetance and criminal your right i dont think women would be that stupid.
    You can die by the cure or the disease all countries have to get open its sad to say but old people are expendable and will have to
    look after themselves young people need to work they arent collecting pensions every month.
    You said about a million black women voted for trump, yet he increased wages for all blacks women and men, brought in criminal justice reform so a lot of black people will be back with family, opened economic zones in disadvantaged areas all for for that little amount of votes. What have the guys done that got the most of the votes all those years,
    Everybody wants to be happy and have a reasonable standard of living when govt cant provide it alcohol is cheap,….5 deputy beer 10 bucks what does that tell you.


  • Donna very strange maybe you heard of her father and uncle even her own story is remarkable


  • I am at loss for words.
    This Herman Cain thing. So silly.
    I hope our Florida resident wears a mask.


  • Lawson,

    Looked that King woman up.
    Remarkable and stupid. Every family has its WHITE sheep.

    You idiotically parrot all the Trump talking points still. But….

    His criminal justice reform was a show designed to fool black people and win the black votes It did not go half as far as it should have. It was a crumb. In the meantime he released police departments from consent decrees towards reforms. His injustice department has refused to investigate and prosecute civil rights abuses.

    Wuhnuh really think black people foolish!

    Black unemployment was not due to any specific policy Trump introduced. The ratio of black to white unemployment remained unchanged. Unemployment and specifically black unemployment was on the decline under Obama. Nothing new. AND the wages meant that the black people still have to work two or three jobs to make ends meet. The promised increases did not materialise.

    And…. the economy would already have been opened relatively safely if he had managed the virus effectively. He needed a plan. His plan was to pretend it was harmless and would magically disappear.

    And black people found out “what they have got to lose” – their lives!

    You really think black people foolish! Ain’t nobody swallowing your load of crap! You told me you were going upstairs to have a movement. I guess that was not successful because you are still full of it!


  • And here you are insulting another woman because if her age. RPG is a ‘hag”. I suppose she should curl up and die since she has lost her sex appeal!

    RPG is doing her best to hold on to save America from another extreme right wing looney in the Supreme Court.

    What a woman!


  • Lawson called a name last week or earlier this week and I googled it.
    I suspected that the name he called today was related to MLK but googled just to be certain.
    I did not google RPG as I suspected he meant RBG.
    Man, you got to stop calling names and inventing people.

    RPG: rocket-propelled grenade
    RHG: grenade used by BDF


  • :-)I think the last three people that believe trump is a stable genius are all from Barbados.
    Oops, I forgot my boy MB and FC.
    The last five 🙂


  • Correction RBG.

    And what the black women did not get under the Democrats is what the Republicans stop them from getting. The “GRIM REAPER” so named himself for a reason.


  • I repeat.

    If white American men and women, and if black American men had WISELY followed the lead of black women, Donald Trump would have remained a has-been reality show host/landlord/weekend golfer, serial marry-er, in none of those roles would he have had the “opportunity” to preside over the virtually destruction of the U.S. economy, and over the deaths of more than 150,000 people.

    Nobody can dispute that.


  • @TheOGazerts July 30, 2020 5:10 PM “I hope our Florida resident wears a mask.”

    Our Florida resident has likely not left home since January. I bet his youngish wife is keeping him indoors and taking excellent care of him, because he like me int no spring chicken.


  • And now that I’m back at my desk……

    Here’s the story of your economic zones for blacks!.


  • OUR FLORIDA RESIDENT MAY NOT BE MASKED (HE HIDING IN THE HOUSE) BUT HE SURE IS MUZZLED! He is, after all, a medical doctor and can no longer defend the very stable genius and creator of COVID COUNTRY who has MADE AMERICA SICK AGAIN.

    Trump was very muted today at the bullshit “briefing”. He was muted last time I watched too. He can’t even convince himself anymore! Even he isn’t falling for his own crap!

    The COVID numbers rising and the GDP falling! And the election looming!

    And he hears a little voice in the distance growing ever closer and louder…..”Lock him up!”




  • And the thing is America has some of the most brilliant scientists in the world.

    Mourning for Americans, because of course some of them are my very close beloved kin.


  • The Arawak cement plant cannot end any better, the property was stolen from a Black man, all 67 acres, another family robbed of their birthright, their beneficiaries robbed of their futures, the controversy surrounding that theft of multiple properties and an impressive bank account…still reverberates in Barbados and the US today..ask the present government…and am sure that they know by now they will never escape their Karma for what they all did.

    Cuddear…it is indeed a sad situation in US, we can all hope that things get better, for the sake of our families and the innocent who never envisioned that their lives will be reduced to a living nightmare by circumstances deliberate and otherwise, but all out of their control..


  • I have an uncle and several first and second cousins and a little baby third cousin in Florida. I have a first cousin in Atlanta and two second cousins. I have other cousins in other parts of America.

    I do not rejoice at America’s plight but I do think that this experience may be like a good vomit that makes America better in the end.

    There has always been a toxicity slow poisoning them. They need to vomit it up.

    They are also teaching the rest of the world a lesson we will not forget for a long time.

    We can no longer ignore our own toxic brew!


  • Theo if you want me to take what you say seriously best look if i wrote rbg or not. You seem to have aligned yourselves with the vile Donna the one that hopes that a great achiever like herman cain (that young black men should follow his example ) should rot in hell. Always dragging black men down who dare venture out away from the panhandler, social assistance, food stamp, banger society she is comfortable with and make their own decisions not ordered by their mamas ( that poor boy)


  • As “vile” as I may be, (and there is not one who knows me who will join you in that) the whole world knows that there is at least one who is more vile. And it is that person with whom you align YOURSELF as did that Herman whatever.

    I have no problem with conservative thinking, I think it serves as a check and balance on excessive liberalism. My problem is with evil. Donald Trump is evil. Those who promote and support him are perpetuating a dreadful evil on the whole DAMNED world.

    Any good Herman whatever may have done is now cancelled out and far exceeded by this horrible endorsement of pure evil.





  • My, my, my! Now we know what you think of black people! “Panhandling, foodstamping, bangers!”

    Herman whatever seems to have been an exception in your mind. I guess he did not drain the resources of the good, hardworking white people.

    You just cannot hide it! You are indeed a racist!7


  • Typical left …racist, …your racist…your all racists….white noise… just heard me praise Cain, Ms King etc good people are good people thats not racist that political choice . But the truth is starting to come out …the difference between a bitch and a whore is a whore screws everyone a bitch screws everyone but you……I knew trump was going to have haters when he only grabbed starlets pussys, but cant you get over it.


  • @ Lawson

    Your language.


  • I am sure you have heard worse Hal, your living in british isles the only area that thinks -unt is more of a noun that barbados


  • @ Lawson

    I have not been to Glasgow for a long time.


  • wil dinna ya think its aboot time ya -unt lol


  • I can see the tv series Donna and Donald………………..Don am I the only one…yes Donna all the rest have been 9’s and 10’s


  • Let the man speak! He isn’t bothering me!

    So am I a bitch or a whore? Your gibberish is a challenge.

    I am of course still too young and juicy to be a hag. No wrinkles like Pelosi and RBG so you can’t order me to retire or die!

    Typical misogynistic insults! No difference between you and Trump!

    When you are sober again maybe somebody could explain to you the racism which leads you to “the exceptional negro” pronouncements. It is as known as the “but I have a black friend” defence.

    By the way, isn’t Obama very articulate?





  • joe biden said so and also clean


  • Typical if you dont for biden you aint black… or white you have the free will to vote for whomever you like your the only one calling people sell outs or uncle toms. you do know the dems hated black started the clan and enslaved more of your people than any others in usa talk about brain washed


  • I guess that is what is meant by BYRD brained


  • I am becoming better at gibberish!

    So now I am too ugly or unworthy to be screwed by Trump or to even have my pussy grabbed! And THAT, in your opinion, is my problem.

    Tell me more!


  • Poor Lawson,

    I already said I have no problem with conservatives. They have their uses. They keep the liberals in check.

    I already said the old Democratic Party was the racist party.

    Are you too drunk to know what year it is? I KNOW that you are not too young to know that LBJ handed the racists over to your party with the Civil Rights Bill. And there they have remained ever since.

    Do try to come into the present!

    So…. what have we learnt here-

    Today is July 31, 2020!

    George Wallace is dead! Donald Trump lives!

    The choice is between Biden who does not hate black people and Trump who does.

    A black vote for Trump is a vote against you own interest!
