Please save these children from their mother, Keisha Melissa Clarke

Barbados Stupid Slut keisha Clarke

28 years old, psychiatric patient and a mother of seven; this serial thief has nothing to offer her children or society

How many so-called ‘fathers’ do Clarke’s children have? Can she really name each man? Who are these low men taking advantage of such a pitiful creature?

The 28 year old “mother of seven” deserves to be pitied, but don’t forget to pity her children and Barbados – for it is the children and ordinary Bajans who bear the burden of so many stupid women like this one. “Single mother” ??? Let’s stop using that phrase and tell it like it is – stupid woman who doesn’t have enough sense to realize she’s being used, or to keep her legs closed.

My compassion for these women evaporated long since.

Sometimes there’s just nothing you can do.

Help this poor woman have more babies without fathers to support the children!

In March 2015 Innotech chairman Anthony DaSilva gave Harriett Hackett $2,500 in food vouchers. How much more is he good for?

In March 2015 Innotech chairman Anthony DaSilva gave Harriett Hackett $2,500 in food vouchers. Here, Harriett wonders how much more is he good for, and would it be worth producing child #10 if she could just lure Anthony into her bed? Would he stick around or run off like all the others?

Nine children by many men – no food, no employment but she has a facebook page

Harriett Hackett hasn’t worked in years and years, and none of the men she’s hooked up with stick around to look after Harriett or her children – but that doesn’t stop her from popping out another little one with this man or that every once in a while. Nine children so far, the oldest being 20 and the youngest being 5. For years Harriett and her brood have lived in a dilapidated shack of a home under conditions that are probably worse than seen at the plantations during many periods in our history.

Last March saw a big fund raising for Harriett that took in thousands of dollars. Politicians lined up for the photo opportunities and brought her clothes and food. Harriett even got her own facebook page Help Harriett Hackett with 150 likes. Well, that money is gone now and she needs some more, so she went to the newspapers again. Seemed to work last time, wonder if it will work again this time?

Mother crying out again for help

My children are hungry again!

The cry of 45-year-old Harriett Hackett as she took a breadfruit from a neighbour and made her way into the kitchen to turn it into a meal for her children when they return home from school.

The mother’s story is not new to readers as her undesirable circumstances were highlighted in an article published in Barbados TODAY on March 18 where she asked for help with feeding and clothing her children.

She told Barbados TODAY this afternoon that she was still struggling to feed her little ones.

Immediately following publication of the article, the Mayers Road, My Lord’s Hill, St Michael family, whose home is also in dire need of repairs, received help in the form of food, clothing and even money from kind hearted Barbadians locally and abroad.

At that time, the unemployed mum said that though she was relentlessly trying to find a job, she had not worked “in years”. Today, she is still searching.

“I looking for work, of course, but I can’t find none up to now. Anything anybody can give me to do, I would be glad for,” the mother said.

Now weeks later, Hackett said while she was thankful for the help last time, she was once again in the same position of hardly having anything to feed her children, the eldest being 20 (not living with her) and the youngest five.

“I don’t have anything for the children to eat. All the vouchers and all the food stuff gone.”

… read the entire story at Barbados Today, and don’t forget to send Harriett lots of money!

Bridgetown, Barbados, May 15, 2015The Barbados grand prize winner in CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank’s recent “Give More, Get More” promotion is looking forward to enjoying a trip for two to Miami.

Mark Goodridge, 62, was presented with his prize recently at the bank’s Warrens branch.

The long-standing customer said that he finds the bank’s credit card products easy to use. “They are also accepted wherever you go, which is a big plus.”

Barbados featured in Louisa Leontiades’ new book ‘Queen of the Limbo’

Barbados Louisa Leontiades

Will Polyamorous British author tell any Barbados tales out of school?

Today BFP heard from our old friend, author and HuffPost / Salon writer Louisa Leontiades that her next book is hitting the stores in November and, surprise surprise, this time the setting is Sam Lord’s Castle in the not too distant past.

Sam_Lords_Castle_Fire

Sam Lord’s Castle hasn’t been so hot since the night it burned to the ground. ‘Queen of the Limbo’ will heat de place up again!

Knowing how rumours fly about Louisa writing real people into her books with only the thinnest of camouflage, we think that more than a few folks on this rock might have a certain curiosity about ‘Queen of the Limbo’. We will!

Well… this should be fun.

Louisa’s Amazon sales are here.

Porn profiteer Minister Donville Inniss cautions Barbadians against websites that “deliberately spew filth”

Orgasm Barbados Inniss 2

“Inniss also voiced concern about people using social media to spread “the nastiest” and “most untrue” reports about fellow Barbadians, and warned that the state would do what was necessary to tackle the perpetrators.” (Nation News, April 8, 2015)

Above: One of the porn websites that made Inniss money

Donville Inniss made a fortune on Internet Porn, now he wants to censor political debate and truth

Pssst… Want to hear a good one?

Minister of Industry Donville Inniss and his government are preparing a law against what he calls “cyber-crime” – but protecting people against hacking is only part of the law. Censorship is what it is all about.

Lately the Minister has been speaking to all who will listen that social media, blogs, twitter and facebook is “out of control, running amuck, spewing filth”

Donville Inniss has a good reason to want to stop the truth… for years he made money as the Online Porn King of Barbados, and no – it wasn’t that he owned a website company and other people put porn up on his servers. That’s what he loves to tell people, but a little digging on the internet shows that Inniss registered porn trademarks in the USA and Canada. Barbados Free Press covered that and printed proof in a series of articles listed below.

How low can you go?

Barbados Government Minister Donville Inniss was part of the lucrative online sex business for years. He profited from websites where desperate pregnant women and teenagers performed sex acts for money.

Inniss also profited from websites showing humans committing sex acts with animals.

You know we couldn’t say this if it wasn’t true folks. Our WordPress hosting company would take us down faster than a rum disappears at Oistens on a Friday night.

Inniss and Orgasm.com profited from websites with pregnant women porn, teenaged porn and sex with animals. All the proof is in our articles and after all these years Inniss hasn’t been able to make Barbados Free Press remove these articles. Because they are for true!

Only one journalist on this rock had the integrity to ask Minister Inniss about his porn business, and Inniss responded by savaging Ian Bourne whenever and wherever he could.

Go ahead, Minister Inniss. Pass your internet censorship law.

Everybody knows why you want that law.

40 years ago Barbados teenager Marcia Rollins went to England to become a nurse

Black Caribbean nurses made a huge difference in England’s National Health Service

Marcia Rollins is from Barbados. She always wanted to be a nurse but opportunities were limited on the island so when the UK needed new recruits she joined thousands of other Caribbean people and left for the ‘mother country’.

“It was always my dream to be a nurse. England was seen as the mother country and there were opportunities in England moreso than here in Barbados to do nursing.

I was terrified but full of hope for the future…

My plans were to go there and study nursing and get back to Barbados as fast as I could.”

Marcia was just 19 when she arrived in England and intended to return to Barbados soon after her training finished. She actually ended up spending 40 years in the NHS making a unique and valuable contribution as a Registered Nurse and gaining a diploma in health care. She retired in 2008 and moved back to Barbados.

“It was always my dream to be a nurse. England was seen as the mother country and there were opportunities in England moreso than here in Barbados to do nursing.

I was terrified by full of hope for the future…

My plans were to go there and study nursing and get back to Barbados as fast as I could.

You had things that weren’t very nice – Get back to the Jungle. Take your black hands off me. Things like that were said to you. To be quite honest, I didn’t let things like that bother me…”

Then I had a family… two small children and going back to Barbados was a far dream. I have no regrets. I consider England to be a University of Life.”
