The Caribbean GIMME Nations

Blacks told to ‘pull up the ass dragging pants’

The majority of the Caribbean countries, that had slave populations, have and are still wallowing around in the financial abyss. One has to ask WHY. Well one suggestion that is hard to dispute is that all of these nations have a large population of people descended from African Slaves. These descended slave populations, during the majority of their history have been looked after by Caucasian people and they have developed a GIMME/Support Me attitude. Work ethics and the ability to support oneself is not in-bred, just the opposite is true. The majority of these slave populations now blame everything on their slave history, it’s all whiteys fault. They may have a point, however it’s been 150 years, six(6) generations since the end of slavery and they still blaming the same devil. It’s about time these black descendants of Africa take an inward look at themselves, pull up the ass dragging pants and start putting the blame on themselves.

THE HALO EFFECT: How Subliminal Images, Vicious Stereotyping, and Black Misogyny Used by Avowed Racists to Propagate Racial and Economic Supremacy

Russian image which sparked controversy.

When the Black author Sophia Stewart, the real creator of the most successful SCIFI movie franchise in history (‘The Matrix,’) won her a Billion Dollar copyright case against the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers – there have been outside citations and implications as to racial injustice because (Ms Stewart is African American).

In setting the record straight, on June 13th 2004, Sophia Stewart’s press release read: ‘The Matrix & Terminator movie franchises have made world history and have ultimately changed the way people view movies and how Hollywood does business, yet the real truth about the creator and creation of these films continue to elude the masses because the hidden secret of the matter is that these films were created and written by a BLACK WOMAN* – a Black woman named Sophia Stewart. But Hollywood does not want you to know this fact simply because it would change history. Also it would encourage our Black children to realize a dream and that is…nothing is impossible for them to achieve!’

In the above pictorial graphic, dated, cited and used on January 20th 2014 – (Martin Luther King Day), by Russian Garage Magazine Editor-In-Chief Dasha Zhukova, as she sits on a hog-tied ‘Black Woman’ in the form of a chair, in a shocking editorial that has outraged many in social media and around the world. The chair pictured in the Buro 24/7 website interview is an artwork created by Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard, one of a series that reinterprets art historical works from pop culture artist Allen Jones as a commentary on gender and racial politics. For many who commented on the picture – one question kept coming to the fore: “why would a white woman want to sit on a hogtied Black woman as an artistic depiction given women’s long history of oppression and misogyny? Some felt that the image was destined to incite reactions but also to reinforce certain basic stereotypes which are entrenched within the debate on “race”, i.e. racial supremacy.

The Path to REPARATIONS

Submitted by Ras Jahaziel

At this epoch of Mankind’s evo­lu­tion, where democ­racy and respect for human rights are being immor­tal­ized as indis­pen­si­ble virtues which every soci­ety must pos­sess and are uni­ver­sal yard­sticks by which the actions of gov­ern­ments are mea­sured, it is almost incon­ceiv­able that there are still those who con­tinue to reject the idea of repa­ra­tions for descen­dants of African slaves. Recently, a book on the sub­ject by Pro­fes­sor Sir Hilary McD. Beck­les, pro-​vice chan­cel­lor at the UWI Cave Hill cam­pus a lead­ing activist and eco­nomic his­to­rian was pub­lished. Enti­tled Britain Black Debt: Repa­ra­tions for Caribbean Slav­ery and Native Geno­cide, it sets out a com­pelling case for Repa­ra­tions from Britain which can­not be coun­ter­acted by any of the sophisms and spe­cious rea­sons posited by cyn­i­cal detractors.

The Caribbean Advances Claim for Reparations

14 Caribbean states have retained the services of the British law firm Leigh Day tom press reparation claim.

14 Caribbean states have retained the services of the British law firm Leigh Day tom press reparation claim.

Reports circulating in the international media indicate 12 Caricom countries along with Haiti and Suriname have initiated proceedings to sue three former colonisers, Britain, France and the Netherlands. This is good news for many Blacks in the Caribbean who believe (and justly so) that the heinous practice of slavery must be addressed in a material way. Why should it be addressed? The societies of the mentioned colonisers have benefited from untold wealth which has been acquired as a result of sweat,blood  and tears shed our ancestors. It does not matter if slavery was an accepted practice of those times. What matters is that it was a heinous act which has stained history’s page and said page should now reflect those who benefitted most address it!

The region  recently appointed Sir Hilary Beckles to head Caricom’s reparations committee. He has not wasted any time lighting a fire under the issue. The committee has secured the services of British law firm Leigh Day whose reputation was enhanced recently when the it won compensation for hundreds of Kenyans arising from the Mau Mau rebellion.

Although there is no official figure given of the repatriations claim a few regional newspapers have suggested £200 billion, the equivalent to the £20 million paid to slave owners in 1834 when slavery was abolished. Prime Minister Ralph Gonzales, the most vocal of regional leaders, stated in a speech to the UN recently that “The awful legacy of these crimes against humanity ought to be repaired for the developmental benefit of our Caribbean societies and all our peoples.”

Whites Are Not Above Criticism

Trevor Marshall(r)

The Mahogany Coconut Group stands firmly in support of historian Trevor Marshall’s views on the role of white Barbadians in the politics of their country. We also publicly declare that Marshall has never promoted racism but has spent almost four decades in highlighting social and economic issues that affect the entire country.

It was Marshall who first critically examined the role played by Sir. Grantley Adams in Barbados’ political development, to the best of our knowledge, Sir Grantley was black; it was Marshall who questioned the granting of National Hero status to many of Barbados’ National Heroes, most of whom are black. Therefore it is difficult to understand why he is only deemed a racist when he critically analyses the role of Barbadian whites in the country’s development.

We are amazed that some Blacks, who rushed to defend Mr.Ralph Johnson’s description of Barbadian workers as “lazy” and inefficient, would want to give Johnson credit, for essentially painting an entire work force with one brush but would want to crucify Marshall, for asking why Indo Barbadians and other minorities, are not placed in the Senate with the same regularity as whites. It was fair to ask why white Barbadians do not enter elective politics but use their corporate weight to influence public policy.

WHAT WOULD AN UNMASKING OF THE PAST SHOW TO THOSE THAT STUDY THE RECORDS CAREFULLY?

It would show that The Invaders are more practiced in acts of extermination, and therefore not predisposed to willingly participate in acts of reparations.
