The loud silence by the government of Barbados, traditional media and other actors to the deportation (‘cleansing’) of Haitians from the Dominican Republic betrays why attempts at regional integration is a pipe dream. Yet again Haitians find themselves […]

The BU family ALWAYS gets the inside track on what is happening in Barbados. It is a pity the traditional media whether by accident or design allows itself to be anchored to a moribund state by being shackled to agendas not aligned to being a purveyor of truth. The CBC and the BarbadosAdvocate have been manipulated by successive governments this we know. The Nation Publishing Group which includes the popular VOB92.9FM radio and Nation newspaper in recent times has been feeling the pressure from Port of Spain, Barbados Today is controlled by the moneyed class Harris and Bizzy. Not to forget the advertisers.
There is a strong view in the United States of America which states for any Republican candidate to be successful as a politician he or she must get the blessing of the Fox News Network. Such a position gives credence to how closely correlated an active media and the ability to shape public opinion. In Barbados the government shapes the news delivered by the CBC and the BarbadosAdvocate. The moneyed class does clean up with the Nation Publishing and Barbados Today.
BU continues to be intrigued by the Nigerian Saga playing out in Barbados. We reserve the right to refer to it as the Nigerian Scam at a future time. How so many things can go wrong with a transaction said to be well funded boggles the minds of sensible onlookers.
BU asked Donna St. Hill to answer three simple questions on behalf of the BU family to start the ball rolling – 1) . Please advise the nature of the relationship with you and Sharon Brathwaite and how it has affected the transaction. 2). Please advise why the BCC is not ready to admit the students given the preplanning and 3). Please advise the contingent arrangement with Renee Coppin at Infinity when the arrival of the students had to be delayed. What is the current status of that arrangement. BU’s communication to organiser of the Nigerian Student visit remains unanswered.
The following advice was offered to Barbadians by a Trinidadian contractor allegedly burnt by Donna St. Hill.

Is this a case of deja vu or some new mumbo-jumbo all over again? How come every time visitors from the motherland set foot here in Barbados there is some controversy? Yes I speak of the 90 or so African (Nigerian) students who have unfortunately somehow found themselves temporarily sojourning at Casa Blanca.
While one would willing admit, that all facts and circumstances surrounding are still unclear, one cannot help but ponder WHY in a country whose number one revenue earner is tourism, this mishap would not have been somehow nipped in the bud by now. Have some ever heard of damage control or contingency management? Is this not what is supposedly being taught at our School of Hospitalities Studies nowadays….how to pamper one’s guest and go all out wherever possible, to see that they are comfortable and adequately accommodated?
It is interesting to observe how Barbados has reacted to the Ebola threat. In spite of the assurance from the Barbados government that surveillance measures are in place at the airport and the seaport, in real terms, we know the surveillance is NOT a robust method to screen Ebola affected travellers seeking to enter Barbados.

Submitted by islandgal246 The most STUPID COWARD of the year goes to Anthony Byran owner of the Barbados Advocate newspaper. That newspaper should be shut down. Imagine he has refused to take money from a Nigerian Barbadian living here since 1994. Mr Adesegha Omobamidele wanted to advertise for an African cook for his restaurant. He […]
Submitted by Bentley This [Stockholm Syndrome] explains the very strong connection that people of (recent, since all humans are) African descent have with religion. Religion (Christianity, Islam) has been consistently and unrelentingly forced on Blacks from the time of slavery to the point where the vast majority of black people are now adherents to one […]

Submitted by the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) The GTUC shares with the world and more so Guyanese the celebration of 1st August which 180th years ago brought an end to chattel slavery in the British Empire. Full emancipation came four years later after the slaves served a four-year period of amelioration (1838). Freedom in […]
Submitted by Pachamama As the newly minted President of Mauritania heads to Washington DC to kiss the ring of the titular head of global arrogance, chattel slavery remains as pernicious and unremitting as ever. Of course, there are several gradations of present day slavery as suborned by capitalism, but chattel slavery represented a deviation from […]

Submitted by Pachamama The World Cup is just around the corner and as Brazil prepares for this signal event of soccer, Brazilian players, of distinctively African origins, continue to face the leading edge of racism in all of Europe. In fact, all Black or African soccer players have been facing, increasingly, incidences of overt racism […]
