    Its surprising that posts like this get no comments. Do black Barbadians not care about where they have come from?

    Everything in Bim has been reduced to a commodity which is bought and sold.

    Bajans no longer hold to principles. We have become prostitutes, for sale to the highest bidder.

    We don’t even understand the meaning of the word disenfranchised, …. or for that matter black.

    It is all about green!!

    … maybe we never had principles in the first place, or maybe we disavowed them all at Indpendence in 1966.

    Maybe it was all alot of long talk, exposed now for what it is once the going gets tough.
