Richard Lowdown Hoad: Open Letter to the Nation Newspaper

Submitted by Heather Cole

Submitted by Heather Cole

Dear Editor,

Having received no response from Mr. Hoad re his column of June 24th 2016, I must bring this matter to your direct attention, seeking a response to the email that was also sent to you. For ease of reference, Mr. Hoad’s article inferred that the actions of Mr. Mark Maloney of breaking the law were comparable to that of Rosa Parks who took a stance for her civil rights. Since that email, I was informed by others that this was not the first instance that Mr. Hoad had written racially sensitive information. This was also done in an article belittling Trayvon Martin’s death.

This is not an attempt to vilify the Nation Newspaper. For all I know those sentences or their meaning went unnoticed by the person who edited the article, making it an error for the newspaper to have published them. The non- response has therefore been deafening.

Your newspaper plays a pivotal role in shaping the minds of the people in our society. My desire is that the present and future generations will finally be free of the curses of slavery and that they will think positively of themselves. Black lives matter is as relevant in Barbados as it is in the USA. How can our people truly become free if our struggles and race are made fun of in Friday satirical banter? Those not so subtle reference will help keep our minds in chains.

I hope that you will respond to my concerns but more so that as a black person, I will not again have to suffer the indignity of reading a similar article.

Sincerely,

Heather Cole.

    Ms. Cole, what is your agenda for stirring the Pot Continually of Racism

    Do we do not understand that the Ideology of Socialism
    is a Godless conspiracy bent on Divisiveness and Destruction.

    This is not Black versus White, or Left versus Right or Jew versus Palestinian, this is a Good versus Evil, Freedom versus Tyranny and the culprit from the beginning of time has always been the Adversary.

    We have our eyes so clinched where they want us to in stirring up racism that we are forgetting the others that suffer Great Atrocities right now in real time, being slaughtered by the thousands.

    After the WWII genocide, we kept saying “never again”. But since then there has been Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and the Christians Middle Eastern territories. Even Saddam, as horrid as he was, never performed such atrocities.

    These people have lived there with their beliefs since the 5th century or earlier. Now convert to Islam or die. Are they less worthy of our outcries???

    “Whenever, in any era, culture, or society, you encounter the phenomenon of prejudice, injustice, persecution, and blind, unreasoning hatred directed at some minority group—look for the person that has something to gain from that persecution, look for those who have a vested interest in the destruction of these particular sacrificial victims. Invariably, you will find that the persecuted minority serves as a scapegoat and is some Stepping Stone for the one that does not want the nature of its own goals to be known.”

    What do you hope to accomplish by this Continual Spirit of Contention, of Breading Hatred in this Island?

    Maybe when we put away Contention, Strife, Vengeance, Hatred, Malice et al, our vision would become clearer!

    A Rose by another name will still smell as sweet in much the same way Slavery to a Slave is STILL SLAVERY!

    The Chiefs in Africa used to war with each other and would sell their Captives European Traders to get them out of the Country so they would not have to fight them again.

    The Europeans engaged in the Slave trade as TRADERS they did not go into Africa and Conquer and capture Slaves.

    Have you heard about modern day Slavery in Africa? What do you call when Muslim Extremist in Africa raid villages and capture children and make them solders to fight their cause?

    Have you read of Boca Harran taking young women from their tribes and selling them as SEX SLAVES…Is that a different kind of Slavery??

    Do the people in Barbados live like this?

    We are All Economic Serfs because of Theft by Taxation that knows no Colour… All ah We!!!

    The only reason I take the time to respond to you and other Racial Spew-age on BU is to show your misleading views.

    A word of Advice, Stop Supporting the Adversary, he does not support his own in the end, and they will be left to Stagger!

    “The only reason I take the time to respond to you and other Racial Spew-age on BU is to show your misleading views.”

    @ Freedom Crier

    Help me to understand what exactly is your substantive point.

    Like it or not, racism presently exists in this island. Are you suggesting that we should accept racism without openly discussing it? Should we not teach our children what and what not to expect growing up in a racially divided Barbados?

    Are you suggesting that, by discussing racism in Barbados, Ms Cole is spewing divisiveness and destruction?

    In your opinion, does discussing the issue of racism only stirs up “Contention, Strife, Vengeance, Hatred, Malice et al?”

    So, because “The Europeans engaged in the Slave trade as TRADERS they did not go into Africa and Conquer and capture Slaves,” are you suggesting they are NOT GUILTY of aiding and abetting in the perpetration of a crime against humanity?

    Assumed you purchased the SONY 42” Smart TV Set John Doe stole from his neighbour’s house, knowing he stole it. Are you suggesting that since you were not the principal offender you are not guilty of the offense of acquiring the TV with the knowledge it was stolen?

    If I were to follow your logic, you seem to be implying since Chiefs in Africa sold their captives to the European traders, those Chiefs in Africa are responsible for:

    ………. Slave ships being filled to capacity with the captives;
    ………. The traders throwing excess living captives over-board;
    ………. 15% of those captives dying at sea during the middle passage;
    ………… Approximately 4 million African captives dying as a result of slavery;
    ………. White men raping female Africa captives to satisfy their sexual desires;
    ………. The white man treating African captives less than human beings.

    BY THAT STATEMENT ALONE, YOUR CONTRIBUTION SHOULD BE DISMISSED AS PURE SHIITE.

    question is the writer presenting an argument to be that of calling this predominately black employed newspaper racist
    another point of concern “black lives matter” where and how is the nation newspaper accountable for the lives of the many blacks who are gunned down in the street by white cops .the last time i check there were no blacks being gunned down by white cops in barbados or the carribbean . However across the carribbean their were black men being gunned down by black cops and not a word said,

    Heather is sheeple.

    She, like we, likes to talk of rebellion, of taking back our country from corrupt politicians, of creating a civil service that works, of legislating integrity, of rising up against a system of institutional oppression, of making our justice system work for us rather than a few influential murderers supported by a corrupt AG.

    But when someone actually does something rebellious, the tune changes.

    Heather, take your head up out of the grass to look around before expounding.

    As I typed here several times before, Mark Maloney is going to destroy Mark Cummings in High Court. He is going to prove once again that the system is corrupt and Mark Cummings is incompetent. When he does this, once again there will be no consequences for Cummings and his cohorts, nor any other useless civil servant earning his daily bread from the employer of last resort.

    When all the noise is over you will once again be able to put your head down in the grass like nothing ever happened until YOUR day of slaughter comes.

    We All belong to One Race, The Human Race… We are all Brothers and Sisters… as the Lord’s prayer states, “Our Father Who Art In Heaven”. As previously stated, Christ did not come to Save Skins, He came to Save Sinners”. Who among us in all the shades of mankind, are without sin ???…

    Who then is it that seeks our destruction by putting us one against another, by evoking Hatred through his fondest tool of Racism?

    The Gospel is unto Repentance… We each need to continue examining our thoughts, words and deeds, and call on the Divine Mercy of God’s beloved Son for forgiveness continually, and if we do not in the end we cannot claim His Gift of Mercy and we will be exposed to the whole law which Justice demands.

    “Do you know who wrote the words to Amazing Grace…. Do you know what he did before he became a convert to Christ? He was a Captain of a Slave Ship. He wrote the melody that many believe that heard this melody that sounds very much like a West African Sorrow Chant, and wrote the words Amazing Grace and set his words to a slave melody.

    I believe God wanted that song written just the way it was to remind us that in God’s eyes we are all connected because of God’s Amazing Grace”.

    I was between two minds re. responding to this post.

    But I think that there is something that needs to be said here that hasn’t been captured so far except intuitively from ac’s post.

    There was no overarching need for this new Lowdown post! It was largely an ego trip.

    Lowdown strategically ran from defending himself over there and left the spoils for her. Heather therefore won the war hands down in her previous blog. In fact he actually could not defend himself from the case put forward by Heather and took the only sensible way out.

    But, by showing her proclivities towards bullying and stalking and intolerantly demanding that the Nation should not ventilate discussion on the matter of race outside her terms, all that she has succeeded in doing here is show herself up as a big bully.

    This attack was an intemperate attack that does not do her other causes ( exemplary as they are) any good.

They live in a system that feeds them a diet of negative stereotyping, incarceration , criminal records, fear, brainwashing and for their dessert guns that are flooded into inner cities so that they can kill ithemselves.

    Just so you understand that the word Racist- A made up word by Leon Trotsky. In 1927 the word was used to browbeat all dissenters of the communist ideology.

    Still used this day to shut down nonconformist!

    Because Bu is largely a Political Forum, upholding the Freedom of Speech, as such Freedom Crier seeks to help others understand the ideology that seeks to impede their Freedom. One such that has emerged through the ranks morphing times over is the philosophy of Socialism whose roots can be traced back to the other Isms including Communism.

    That said True Freedom is also the Freedom of the Spirit, which has been gifted to mankind even that of his or her Individual Sovereignty… Free Agency, to act according to the dictates of his or her own Conscience.

    However there are those Elitist among us who follow the plan that seek to take away mans Agency as Hillary Clinton said, “We just can’t trust the American people to make these types of choices…the Government has to make those choices for people”. If you think Communism is Dead, think again, “The Goal of Socialism Is Communism”. Valadmir Lenin.

    Make no mistake Socialism is not about Benevolence… It is Atheism masquerading as Charity through political philosophy! Its teachings are the exact opposite to the Commandments of God, just think about it…With the Democrats anything Immoral is Acceptable and anything Godlike is Condemned!

    Here is a view of a great movie starting July 22 that we should not miss. Elitist Democrats and the ideology they uphold still seek our enslavement, and today they come in all colours and are clearly recognizable even on BU.

    You know who they are as I do!

    Hillary’s America, the latest film from the creators of America: Imagine The World Without Her and 2016: Obama’s America takes audiences on a gripping journey into the secret history of the Democratic Party and the contentious rise of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    In Hillary’s America, New York Times #1 best-selling author and celebrated filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza reveals the sordid truth about Hillary and the secret history of the Democratic Party.

    This eye-opening film sheds light on the Democrats’ transition from pro-slavery to pro-enslavement; how Hillary Clinton’s political mentor was, literally, a cold-blooded gangster; and how the Clintons and other Democrats see foreign policy not in terms of national interest, but in terms of personal profit.

    Hillary’s America will uncover how their plan is to simply steal America.

    97% of the topics posted here are about advocacy and activism, the voiceless one’s airing their issues and concerns. And an empathic public responding.

    “Followings” naturally devolve AWTY, and like how when you post or Pachamama, BT, FearPlay will post or Amused will post, and the list of fellows with gravitas, (BTW Amused says that he posts “after being given permission by SFWMHBO (I think that stands for “she for whom my heart beats only – his wife) after these people post, people will read.

    Their content is generally sound and or provocative, so people read.

    Then of course there are the comedians.

    one of the Legion, then your humble servant?, Alvin, fellows like that whom the public when they want a joke they look at our submissions.

    And then there are the fellows who when they get “thrown under a bus”, people will read but “let him/her stand dey cause dem is uppity and dem mouf gine do fuh dem and ting”. Me and PPK.

    THen there are the aspiring politicians Pigrim, and PPK

    And finally, the ones who are testing the climate and “building credibility” and FOLLOWING

    Testing the waters and creating an artificial following, using emotive topic lines, even legion has commented on this modus of engagement.

    @ Heather

    Have you ever been paid to watch water?

    No no no not lika an environmentalist, of CSI forensics man, or the Minister of Water Words and Bizzy from Ionics.

    Just watch water?

    Water is a funny thing Heather, but some people get paid to watch water, not Walther water.

    A house in Barbarees Hill might be locked up tight and you never see who is in it, and the paling might be 12 feet tall, high above Mark Cummins’ regulations at the Town and Country Planning Department and not a soul, even the Census Department man who went to the house and did a census, would be able to ascertain how many people are in the house.

    But they are people who get paid to watch things like that.

    “Anomalies”

    How much food goes in the house/embassy”? How many garbage bags? when are the pipes vibrating signalling usage? what is the intensity of the flow?

    That is why 1st world countries build their own self contained embassies, so that the internal activities will not be known.

    I do not know you from bull foot Heather, I only know what you post here, but sometimes people slip.

    Go back to your statement about email coming to you and take a gander, and you will see the “anomaly” of which I speak.

    I am not imputing anything. I asked you your name twice BECAUSE you said something that was off kilter and someone else responded and someone else said something and it just did not click.

    BU is a place where we all play games of some type, it is not that we enter the door of submitting a name and an email, WHICH for the IDIOTS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE, should explain why not a man or a woman here on BU needs to fear dufusses.

    Yes Heather, we submit a name with any email that we choose and hit submit.

    5 lines like the economical submission style of Colonel Buggy rarely 10 but the economy of those words. pointed, suggestive, provocative, crisp.

    Or Bush Tea, crescendo. build up to delivery, constant blows then denouement, brassbowls repend and seek BBE.

    DPD, scientific to the point of screeling on your nerves, making sure of what you said, tyig you up for the commas you mislaid, ignoring when so inclined but showing you where YOU TOO WERE AS FALLIBLE. Those of us who know him know that he is a forgiving man but those who dont will think of him as pedantic.

    My point heather is that as we write, eyes scan the bytes that you penned and seek, impossibly to gauge who you are, if you are for real or if you do word song really well.

    I like everyone else really want to know what is your angle, if you have an agenda, that is a fair thing, my agenda is clear to all uh wunna, I want to get rid of the DLP, and while that will mean a Default Mia Mottley Prime Minister.

    I have no false concepts about Mia Mottley, and you for one dun know that. Some here believe that it will all wuk out, but i don’t. But we have inepts and no independents.

    Enter you Heather.

    Strong articulate black beauty.

    And you talk some talk but you see something Heather? Whereas we understand where IslandGirl246 and WW&C and my dearest SSS and Donna coming from, and whereas we dun know where Sand Nigger (down with socialism) coming from like AC (of all people said) your agenda is not known.

    And to be here for as long as you are here and your agenda not be known is an anomaly of note because the walls are 16 feet, the gates open with automatic arms, the house is always closed, but and here is the clincher, the washing machine always going, like if allot of clothes got to get washed for bin Wasik.

    Mark Maloney is the real target of Ms Cole’s missives here, and that’s because Mia painted a big red bulls-eye on his back in Parliament to embarrass the government. Therefore, as one of Mia’s minions, Cole is obliged to take pot shots at anyone who might be perceived as coming to his defence.

    Many moons ago, when this woman first came on BU, I warned that she was an ‘agent provocateur” for the BLP. Her mandate was, wherever and whenever possible, to stir the pot of dissatisfaction about the current problems that beset Barbados under the current DLP administration. (This is why everything she posted here also submitted to the Nation and to Barbados Today; she wanted to cover as many bases as possible with her propaganda.)

    Because this narrative was music to the ears of many on BU, you were quick to heap accolades upon her. Now perhaps some of you are realizing the truth. In the early days, she was provided with inside information from the BLP that she could use as ammunition.

    Sometimes she buried these “incendiary devices” inside long, nostalgic stories about the good life before the DLP. Problem is, Ms Cole and the BLP are running out of topics; they have picked all the low hanging fruit. All that is left to harvest is the bird-picked fruit of racism that lies rotting on the ground.

    THAT WAS WHAT WAS MISSING, and while Money Brains i a piece uh racist like I am a piece uh racist he said one thing that put it all in context.

    MB asked her “if you are saying that this is a problem why dont you bring a solution?”

    And you know something?

    If you go back to each and every one of her emotive subjects there is nary a one where HEATHER COLE, in and of herself gives a SOLUTION that gives of herself.

    Even the proselyted entity that is AC will parrot the solutions of her beloved DLP, as does Alvin.

    But, after highlighting what is wrong, so eloquently, and so emotively, Heather does nt give one a definitive solution!

    It is like if she, like Sandra Husbands, get their vision and message from what Mia pronounces.

    And since their is no pronouncement OR SINCE THAT PRONOUNCEMENT IS THE MIRROR of her boss, she does not say anything.

    I simply could not understand “who she was” and “what was her agenda” BECAUSE WHILE THERE WAS ONE, THERE WAS NONE.

    A Rose by any other name would smell just as sweetly.

    Hail to the Default Prime Minister Mia Mottley who one can only hope that Eddie Hinkson is able to secure enough momentum to bring the others to his side.
