Who in the World Respects Black People?


Why pick on China?

Who in the world respects Black people?         

The English? No!                   

The French? No!                             

The Americans? No!                                         

Germans? No!

Canadians? No!

Blacks? Certainly not!!!

Quite apart from the fact that “Black” and “White” are artificial constructs based on bogus premises and stupid stereotypes (which distort our existential authenticity as much as it does theirs) the simple truth is: all we have to do is respect ourselves. REPEAT: ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS RESPECT OURSELVES! 

Respecting ourselves, truly respecting ourselves (not a stand-alone phenomenon, but one that is accompanied by self-esteem, self-belief, self-validation, self-actualization and, most importantly, self-love) is a mammoth undertaking for any people who have had a comparable history to ours. This turn of phrase is laughable for its emptiness, since no others have; not by a long shot. In short, nothing to compare! The task at hand is uniquely ours. The task at hand is two-fold. One. Demand & collect trillions of dollars in reparations from Arabia & the West for 14 centuries of material enslavement.   Two. Regain our rightful minds. This task is to effect our own rebirth and cease to be what Professor Thomas has aptly termed natally alienated and morally imbecilic. Admittedly, this is no easy task. One generation of enslavement is bad enough. Fourteen centuries of inter-generational dehumanization is deadly. But rise from the dead, we must! 

To every poison there is an antidote. Ours likely exists in our midst, hiding in plain sight. In fact our problem is not one of discovery but legitimization. Legit # 1: recognizing that we have a problem in the first place. Legit # 2: desiring its resolution. Legit # 3: actually taking the medicine. This is what we owe ourselves, our Ancestors and our children’s children. Yes, we owe it to ourselves! (What they owe us is trillions in reparations).  It is entirely likely that a handful among us have undergone this process and effected our rebirth. Speaking personally, we know of only a few; a precious few. And, at the very top of this very short list stands such luminaries as Mirambo, Nzinga, Sandy, Rodney, Azikiwe, Kaunda, L’overture, Hypatia, Nkrumah, Lumumba, Imhotep, Toure, Shaka, Diop, Nyerere, Garvey, Zumbi dos Palmares, Jomo Kenyatta,  av gbhnd, hiding in plain sight from most of our blinkered plant-African brothers and sisters, Molefe Kete Asante. Thank you Molefe and your illustrious associates for swelling our Ancestors’ chests with pride!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!So, let’s not pick on the Chinese or any other group. Let us simply respect ourselves, truly respect ourselves and be the self-validating people God intended us to be. This must be the basis upon which we relate to ourselves. And this, in turn, is the only basis upon which we should countenance transactions with  others; be they large or small, friendly or hostile, material or spiritual.

  1. Nice throw, big KNIFE…

    “Perhaps the greatest lesson we can learn from Moses is that true leadership isn’t about the leader but about serving someone and something greater than one’s self.

    One of the most admirable qualities about Moses is that, unlike many modern leaders, he was not preoccupied with creating a personal legacy.

    There are inherent dangers when a leader tries to shape her or his own legacy while in office. It is akin to driving a car while looking into the rearview mirror – the most likely outcome will be a crash.”

  2. “The outgoing principal pointed out that recent research by a student at UWI had to be conducted in the UK because it was not legal to do it in Barbados.”

    ah hope it has sunk in, the medical marijuana was allegedly officially legalized, although it was legal on the statute books for about 30 YEARS..through a legal regime….but it was done lately PRIMARILY for RESEARCH…which is STILL ILLEGAL IN BARBADOS…

    because unless they come up with a super strain, that’s all it would be useful for on the island, but RESEARCH of marijuana is still ILLEGAL IN BARBADOS and has to be done in UK…….😂🤣😂😜😎

    not a fella can say i made that up…lol

  3. It is interesting that even lawyers and judges are becoming annoyed and are commenting on the justice system.

    A slothful system designed to render citizens into two groups (justice delayed or a speedy resolution) is now frustrating some of its officers.

    Please do no see this as an indication of the system beginning to work; but rather that it’s constipation is becoming unbearable.

  4. read in the news where lawyers representing the girl ( stated). that letters were sent to Mia and was given a no response
    Which took.my mind back to the contrversial.issue of Mia sticking her nose in the issue when a business person one knowing to have her phone number made a call to her
    A call which was reported to be of a cause of which this person was upset because the police actions seemed inappropriate to his business opening and to which Mia responding with immediacy
    Who the cat likes the cat licks

  5. It was always my opinion that the arrogant and insulting Englishman was one of the brighter tools in the shed.

    Clearly, he was not loved by all. Even his admirers struggled with him. However, I continue to be puzzled as
    to how a chess player can do easily sacrifice his queen.

    The Domp-ster tries (God bless his soul), but even he knows it was not a fair exchange.

  6. For those who.might be confused on the above comment
    Consistency is a measuring stick to decipher truth from lies
    Fact from fiction
    It also details with efficiency that fooling people all of the time is Not a good thing and there is never ever a good time or place to do so
    Yes indeed words matter

  7. A happy Friday to all of Barbados and that includes all: Bs, Ds, neutral, in exile, throw-a-shade, patriots……

    Have a great day.

    Though Moses leadership must be admired and commended, he no less felt burdened by the cares of the people, until he cried out to God in Numbers. 11:11 for help, and to Numbers 11:16, God asked his cry by appointing him the Sanhedrin to help him governed the people.

  9. “The prosecutor added that he believed that the situation was now at the stage that the Registrar of the Supreme Court should become involved.

    “The registrar must be able to light some fire under the learned magistrate, and I am not holding my words any longer,” Watson added.”

    i wish him real good luck with the registrar who don’t think it important or professional to ANSWER SIMPLE QUERIES…..just like some of the judges.

    Theo…not only will they be even luckier to ever find that file, but luckier still that it was not a 30 year ordeal for the man who would have served his sentence 2 or 3 times….it’s no joke the ROT at the courts, particularly the supreme court….and he is nowhere near that next ordeal, still stuck in limbo between the two.

    with all of that, each and everyone of them still tell themselves and convince who know no better that they are somehow “learned” while absolutely REFUSING to do the job that taxpayers pay them a salary for, they need to name and shame that backward magistrate.

  10. As a matter of fact, there are disciplinary measures in place that’s supposed to be taken when Judges REFUSE TO HAND DOWN DECISIONS WITHIN A 6 MONTH PERIOD…not sure about the magistrates not doing their jobs…but it appears that it’s in place in words only because it looks good in black and white ON PAPER, but some judges are ignoring those protocols and NO ONE is disciplining them..

    ..so there is your answer for why the ROT is at extreme levels in the judiciary….as the magistrate is lamenting, as claimants, defendants and everyone cries out…. and as the CCJ exposes REPEATEDLY….while the Prime Ministers, AGs, GGs, CJs and all those sucking on taxpayers PRETEND they can do nothing….this has gone on for DECADES…under each and every administration and those who are supposed to put an END TO IT.

  11. while the Prime Ministers, AGs, GGs, CJs and all those sucking on taxpayers PRETEND they can do nothing….this has gone on for DECADES…

    if you read the Constitution there are systems/processes/procedures in place to not only discipline the judges upon recommendation of all the above…am sure it also applies to magistrates…..but to also FIRE THEM…..so in effect, the above characters SUCKING ON TAXPAYERS…..are the ones keeping the ROT firmly in place, the electorate should ASK THE PM WHY…and then FIRE HER….if she still refuses to change the corruption and outright criminality coming from public servants who are supposed to do the people’s work, but work for and please themselves only…

    they are telling themselves that they have not been researched THOROUGHLY to PROVE who is RESPONSIBLE for what has always been happening at the judiciary…..that has now rendered it NONFUNCTIONAL..

  12. Another crime committed against injured people by the frauds for lawyers some occupying the parliament…. injured people are ENTITLED TO THEIR COMPENSATIONS…and should not be ROBBED of more than half of it by a criminal claiming to be a lawyer/government minister./honorable Slave/common class THIEF…..

    big head kerry the FRAUD…..if an insurance company settles for a set amount, the client SHOULD NOT be getting LESS THAN HALF OF WHAT THE COMPANY SETTLED with the injured person for….most of the lawyers believe they should make more money off their client’s injuries than the person with the pain and suffering.

    ALL these crimes against the people are SANCTIONED and protected by those in the parliament and the judiciary….just a matter of time before yall and ya CRIMES end up on somebody’s show on the international stage for robbing injured BLACK people and stealing BLACK people’s estates….

    Because the tyros are more status quo than “UnDerGrounD”?
