Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary Site Of Astounding Happening!
Yes, folks – we couldn’t believe it ourselves (what with all this talk of that one incident last week between a light-skinned homeowner and a dark-skinned young man – link here) – it is true that several hundred people of all races, colours and religion all met last Saturday at the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary, and actually enjoyed each other’s company!
The event was the official launch of the proposal to establish the Graeme Hall National Park – but it felt more like a party than a meeting to Shona and Marcus.
One Racial Incident At Party…
There was one very serious racial incident at the party though. For a few minutes around 5pm, the cash bar ran short of cold Banks beer and two men of different races argued over who would get the last cold one.
A Barbados Free Press reporter was there to witness the whole nasty incident…
“Please give the cold one to my friend here” said the one chap.
“No, I insist. Please have it yourself” said the other fellow.
“No. No. I don’t mind a warm beer. Besides, it’s almost cold” was the terse, racially-charged reply overheard by BFP.
This potential powder-keg of racial hatred was defused by our own Marcus, who had the presence of mind to say, “Well if you two idiots are going to continue holding up the line, I’ll take the last cold one.”
Well done, Marcus!
