TIM KEE MUST GO!

February 16, 2016 – newsday.co.tt

TIM KEE MUST GO!PEOPLE’S National Movement (PNM) Chairman Franklin Khan last night insisted that the party’s Treasurer and Port-of-Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee must resign in the wake of his (Tim Kee) contro- versial comments made in the wake of the murder last week of Japanese pannist Asami Nagakiya, who body was found on Ash Wednesday under a tree in the Queen’s Park Savannah. Khan made his position clear speaking also in his capacity as PNM chairman and Urban Development and Local Government Minister. He did so as Tim Kee’s intention to demit office following an emergency meeting of the Corporation did not materialise yesterday.

“I speak as chairman of the PNM and also as Minister of Rural Development and Local Government, the line ministry under which the Port-of- Spain City Corporation falls,” Khan told Newsday last night. “I reinforce statements by the Prime Minister on Sunday morning at Piarco airport, where he endorsed the Mayor’s intention to resign.” Indicating it was the right thing to do in the circumstances, Khan said, “I also want to reinforce Camille Robinson Regis, Chairman of the National Women’s League of the PNM, indicating similar sentiments as the PM. I want to go on record as chairman of the party and as the line minister for the Port-of-Spain City Corporation I think that Tim Kee took the right decision by indicating his intention to resign and to also endorse what the Prime Minister has said.” “In the capacity as Chairman I speak on behalf of the leadership of the party, indicating that we sup- port Tim Kee’s original intention to resign and we think that he should proceed to do such in a timely manner. It is our opinion that he erred in the statements he issued and the only honourable thing to do now is ten- der his resignation,” Khan declared.

And, was there an emergency meeting of the Port-of-Spain Corporation yesterday to receive and discuss the Mayor’s offer to resign? Two Councillors – one of them usually crucial to the calling of unscheduled meetings of the Council – say no. Another said he was not invited to attend any such meeting yesterday and another two refused to comment when contacted by Newsday.

Hillan Morean, councillor for St Ann’s River North, said he was not invited to a meeting, while June Durham and Jameel Bisnath, councillors for Woodbrook and St James East, respectively, both said they had no comment. PNM Chairman Khan was not aware whether such a meeting took place.

“I am not aware. But the Act is clear. The mayor has to issue his resignation to the council, through either the CEO or secretary of the council. The mayor’s resignation is not contingent on acceptance or rejection by the council. Once the mayor resigns it is in effect. My understanding is he has not yet submit- ted his resignation and I want to go on record as endorsing the Prime Minister’s sentiments that he (Tim Kee) will do the honourable thing and tender his resignation.” When Newsday contacted Deputy Mayor Keron Valentine via a text message yesterday, he responded, “Council never met.” “There was no Council meeting,” was how Councillor for Belmont South and leader of the Council Jennel Young, responded to queries by Newsday. Asked whether there were any plans to have an emergency meeting during the course of this week, she said she has to be contacted by the mayor and no one has called her.

“I have not even seen a letter of resignation,” she told Newsday yesterday. These denials conflict sharply with that of Councillor Farai Masaisai who said there was a meeting and councillors expressed solidarity with the embattled Mayor whose remarks following the death of Japanese national Asami Nagakiya were considered “totally unacceptable” on the weekend by his political leader, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.

  • Mayor Paul mum on Mayor Tim Kee
    POINT Fortin Mayor Clyde Paul yesterday declined to be drawn further in the firestorm surrounding fellow Mayor Raymond Tim Kee, after he (Paul) earlier questioned the rationale behind calls for Tim Kee’s resignation from women’s organisations and some sections of society over perceived misogynistic remarks made after the murder of Japanese pannist Asami Nagakiya.

    RESIGN NOW
    Resign now! This in a nutshell is the advice that People’s National Movement (PNM) chairman Franklin Khan is giving to Port of Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee.

    Khan: Resigning is proper thing to do
    Resigning is the proper thing to do. That was Government’s position regarding Port-of-Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee last night as an expected resignation from him failed to materialise yesterday. Rural Development and Local Government Minister Franklin Khan who is the corporation’s line minister and who’s also chairman of the ruling People’s National Movement (PNM) made the point when Tim Kee’s resignation failed to materialise up to late yesterday.

    Tim Kee not ready to quit, says analyst
    “PNM deceit!” That’s the accusation now levelled against Port-of-Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee and the ruling People’s National Movement (PNM) after Tim Kee’s expected resignation failed to materialise yesterday. Political analyst Dr Bishnu Ragoonath says Tim Kee may use the support of the Port-of-Spain City Corporation Council and other people which he received yesterday as a basis to try and remain as mayor. Ragoonath said: “Based on what Tim Kee said on social media that he has more work to be done, Tim Kee may really not be ready to resign and probably believes he has the council’s support and can play the situation to the maximum and stay on.”

    Lee Sing: Duck out by political leader Rowley
    IF Port of Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee really wants to resign, there is nothing stopping him, former mayor Louis Lee Sing said yesterday. Lee Sing also said Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s latest handling of the Tim Kee debacle was a “duck out” since Tim Kee was appointed by the People’s National Movement (PNM) of which Rowley is the leader.

    Will Tim Kee thinking survive City Hall exit?
    On Sunday, Prime Minister Keith Rowley showed himself to be a light-footed political dancer. Dr Rowley managed to quick-step himself onto the right side of history by joining in the denunciation of remarks by Port of Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee.

    Mayor mobbed by supporters
    Embattled Port-of-Spain Mayor Raymond Tim Kee was mobbed by scores of supporters as he stepped out of his official black-tinted SUV around 10.50 am yesterday to make his way to the front entrance of his office on Knox Street, Port-of-Spain.

  • I normally don’t agree with the PNM but the PNM chairman is right. Tim cannot suck and blow at the same time. He said he was going and was endorsed by the PM on this move.

  • I think that Dr. Rowley and Franklin Khan have just given Kamla Persad Bissessar, what she has been working so hard after the elections to accomplish – DESTROY THE PNM. Just as I have warned in my previous posts “this is just the beginning”. That is exactly how things start to fall apart. No one could have predicted that Dr. Rowley and Franklin Khan would have put themselves in the middle of the death of a Japanese visitor. But by interjecting into what Kamla tried so hard to make a political issue, they have in fact put themselves and the PNM in the line of fire.

    Politics is a dirty game. Bill Clinton’s problems started in the still of the night and the privacy of his office. Thousands of people worked hard to defeat that evil woman form regaining power. Tens of thousands worked to elect Dr. Rowley. He now must show political maturity and astuteness, not to be outsmarted by the same woman he defeated at the polls. Yes, the death of a Japanese visitor started it. The signs were everywhere. The protests against Tim Kee was never meant for Tim Kee. It was always meant to aim its arrow towards the PNM. Read Andre Bagoo’s article in the Newsday. He started with the PNM manifesto. The truth is, nobody cares about the life or death of the murdered woman. The ultimate aim was politics and Dr. Rowley and Franklin Khan (the big wigs in the PNM), by interjecting and making definitive statements have now allowed the party to be part of the whole shenanigan. Since her demise, we are as yet to hear and study what the police and investigators have to say about her unfortunate demise. One would have expected a thorough investigation by law enforcement, some speculation of the perpetrators, possible arrests and bringing to justice those accused of the murder. But that has taken a back seat to the real opportunity to make ALL of it political. That is not to say that Tim Kee did not provide some of the ingredients, the UNC in its ever ending search to become the favored party WILL NEVER STOP TRYING TO GRASP AT ANY OPPORTUNITY to make the PNM look foolish and impotent. At this point in time, t5he interjection by Rowley and Khan, have done just that. The next move (if successful) will be to destroy the PNM. Ralph Maraj have been trying to do that EVERY DAY on i95.5fm. So, why seasoned politicians like Dr. Rowley and Franklin would choose two give them more ammunition? I am absolutely sure that was not the intent but in politics you always test the waters before you enter into it. Dr. Rowley allowed himself to go way too far about speaking not just about Time Kee but also interjected or said that the Point Fortin mayor will be the next one to go. Now tell me, where is the death of the Japanese visitor in all this? What death? What murder? What investigation? What Justice? We are now into the detraction off the PNM because it’s leaders were outsmarted by Kamla, and you know what? At this point in time she is winning the case against the death of this Japanese woman. Yes folks! thats how it starts, the bacchanal is yet to follow. Much more to come on this folks!

    • The woman was warned in Silver Stars pan yard not to walk up Woodford street to the Savannah in a skimpy costume, walking around the Savannah to go meet her two friends in St Anns from anywhere around 8 pm to midnite on Carnival Tuesday. She made her own decision against all the advice of the Police before Carnival. She took her chances with our criminal elements.

      • Jerry, i notice that you seem to not realize thzt she is in fact the deceased victim of a murder…do you want the society to bring you her corpse for you to spank?? “The Lady was warned..”…she IS a non english speaking foreigner! I.E.evwn if she speaks english it isn’t her first language or culture…if she had been from a similar culture, she may have understood thay ESPECIALLY with her PHENOTYPE (light skin, straight-haired ) she would have had to be particularly observant of her surroundings…BUTTTTTTTTTTTT to her credit…nowasYs people market carnivL as if it is still in the 60’s…the fact is ezpeciLly in the last 20 years…carnival isn’t wholly centered on thought provoking calypso and playful, melodic tunes , but the society is beong ripped away fro calyspo at its centre and lyrics in soca that inspire a kind of selfish, materialistc culture….evwn up til the lare 90’s carnival was short pantss and a clean jersey…maybe a nice watch….NOW…it is like a red carpet even with gowns & impractical attire, lavish cellphones, cRs and panty & bra…..this generation actually believes panty and bra and ‘wining’ was always carnival…it wan’t…carnival was tethered to a different moorings that is now beyond the horizon….it is a dangerous time….so it cannot be as ‘fun’ as it used to be…..time was…people worked hard year round and cRnival was a welcome ‘release’,,,,now? Partying and less work is year round…..drug wars weren’t around in the heydays of carnival….people weren’t as eager to kill with the squeeze of a trigger….guns weren’t available to the masses especially automTic, highpowered ones..even the criminally minded had their specific venues and carnival attracted social peopke…now….the same youth running Round shooting in P.O.S. ..may very well be on any given cornerz watxhing the parade and itching to taKe life….BUTTTTTTTTTTTT., Ms Nagakiya saw only the good side…and i adore foreigners who tzke time Nd effort to genuinely sociLize with our culture…..and you know what?? She didn’t as some oight skin foreigners do…try to filter into the white/arab/indian & upperclasses….she and her friends showed love to black skinned african people…without scorn…and THAT is nothing to sneeze at ….or callously dismiss
        Jerry….show some respect!

    • I agree.

      The PM and the PNM have miscalculated on this one. They have knuckled under to the forces of political correctness, instead of upholding the eternal verities. Righteousness is the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow. Better to hold fast to it, and lose a wuk, than to go with satanically inspired ideas about what is trendy, chic, and progressive. Rowley must pull himself away from that leftist social tendency, and realign himself with the eternal verities. Or he will pay. It is as simple as that.

      Kamla is not the issue. She will never again be elected in T&T. Rowley still wears the crown easily upon his head. There is no credible challenger anywhere that has yet emerged, either within the PNM, or from outside. The usual miscreants will continue to rock de boat at every opportunity. But to no avail. If anything, they will make themselves ever more unelectable by doing so. What Rowley must do is to understand clearly that he rules, not at the pleasure of the citizenry of T&T, but at the pleasure of God, who put him there.

      To the extent, Rowley retreats from his promise to bring morality back into the public affairs of this country, he will be violating his terms of service, first with the people, and more importantly with God. A leader’s job is to lead, not to follow. And he must lead with an eye and a mind to the eternal verities.

      The leader that aligns himself to a satanic agenda of lesbian, gay, trans-gender and etc. will lose the mandate given him by God. That is the side that Rowley has chosen to align with, and he is wrong.

      Tim Kee spoke out of turn, but the plain meaning of what he was trying to say was not at all to blame Ms. Nagakiya. It unfortunately came across that way, and he was right to amend his remarks with some form of apology. He should have gone further and at least have made a statement of condolence on his own behalf and that of the City of Port of Spain to her family and to the Embassy and people of Japan.

      Be that as it may, his error was not and is not a firing offense, except in the over-heated imagination of feminism taken to a ridiculous extreme.

      Quite the opposite, TimKee’s instincts resonate with the majority in the society. The masquerade has gone too far in a satanically inspired direction. And any servant of God must sound the trumpet. However weakly, and however much out of turn, TimKee sounded the trumpet. That message must not be slapped down at all, let alone as “totally unacceptable”. No, the PM is quite wrong on that, and the PNM likewise. God will correct them the hard way if they don’t hasten to correct themselves.

      Rowley has proven himself quite politically adroit in general. In this case, having misspoken, he will have to find someway to right himself, and get back on the side of the rightist elements of the party and citizenry, and repudiate the satanic embrace of those leftist elements in thrall to international agitation for unrestrained feminist lesbian bulldaggerism, flagrant battymanism, gender confusionism and dowhayouwant public lewdness, lasciviousness and vulgarity. He and his party need to get right with God, and revise their misguided statements.

      May the Most High shine His light upon us at this critical juncture that the ship of state may be righted and sail on smoothly in His grace, unbothered by the evil miscreants in out midst who would put us in thrall to some or other variety of Satan.

      Shalom.

      “But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of Yahweh, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of Yahweh. But Yahweh sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.” (Jonah 1:3-4)

    • IRALPHMARAJ.5FM The Trusted name in Hindu/UNC Talk
      It’s intersting How Ralph Maraj, tries to denounce what he would term ‘stereotypes’ of Indians & Hindus (some say accurate observations) BUTTTTTT, everyday on HIS radio station, he SOLIDIFIES them. Everyone knows He is a UNC and yetm he insisted on defending the ‘run off’ bill to the day it died. He takes PRO Kamla stances on every issue and denies doing so (dishonesty, deceit). Just as Harvey Boris should have walked out on Garth Christopher from day one on power 10e, Darrian, joh etc. Should have done the same on principle….Ralph Maraj is like an intellectual wet blanket over the views of others….His laughs are fake, and his only purpose is to undermine any and all criticisms of HIS party & HIS people….ESPECIALLY whe they are TRUE! No5ice how he drowns out dissenting voices who call in (i stopped listening, even periodicLly a while aback…) The Kind if Africans that Ralph should go up against are not on that stations…..it is similar to the PNM, men like ralph…UNC Hindus/Indians, THRIVE on the PNM culture Bred men & women….never wanting to unashamedly challege Indians….Deathly Afraid to ‘offend’ them…always wanting to please…at the expense of the people like them & the pRty….and it does not work!…but they still bend over as low as they can and spread as wide as they can….If Darrian,John et al had unashamedly expressed their disgust 8f him taking over the station and usurping their SENIORITY there….ob all programs…..he would not have been able to last…BUTTTTTTTTTTTT. ..they like many africans ….they want to appease & befriend their oppressor….obnoxious as he is….and this emboldens him more and more…look at where we are in 2016….ONE MAN take over the entire stTion….how is it that onluy the hindu indian and the half breed chinese get to be on the oongest and on all programs?? (I deliberately say half breed to smash the self deception that tony & roger are pure chinese…they are NOT)…
      WHY do african people support organizations that do not serve THEIR will?? Could you imagine a black skinned african…..walking into Jaagrati or sangeet or any indian/Hindu owned frewuency & telling THEM what is the agenda. What is right & what is wrong?? Immascualting THEIR people?Dominating THeIR station???NO!…BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, the best way to trap Africans in this society is to appeal to their christian sense of ‘fair’….so indian frequencies are and get to be pro unc pro Hindu pro indian with no remorse but any frequencies that african voices dominate must ‘make room’ for unc hindu/indian hedgemony….what a sad sad reality….and every day he does this….HIS supporters are in glee…they enjoy listening to the immasculation…they KNOW it IS IN FACT immasculation…..this is what i call the ‘settlement colonialism’ mentLity with Indians in T&T. …tpwherever they aren’t dominant…they seek to migrate in larfe numbers to effect this reality…it occurs with land as they TRY not TRIED in Tobago….valsayn (bamboo)….but they also do it on an intellectual lefel also….look at what U.W.I? Has become….it isn’t the U.W.I.. of the past generations….it is an extension of The Maha Sabha…an extension of the UNC….an Indian colony if you will….
      a H.U.W.I……the ‘H’ is silent …but only in pronunciation…in form and function it is the H.U.W.I…..you see…as painful & uncomfortable as these facts are hard to hear for willfully ignorant african Trinbagonians….these behaviours are merely ManifestTions of a very very JNTOLERANT mind….another obvious manifestTion is….since the 50’s Indian voters as a bloc, have NEVER voted against the Maha Sabha (UNC)…in all its re-incarnations….they have never swayed…..this is the da ger of the indian population being allowed to segregTe & have sectRianism preaching educational institutions…from nursery to tertiary…they consolifdTe a single minded, sectarian agenda from the womb to thw tomb…but africans never had strong, si gle minded unashamed of ancestry institutions post 1956…the PNM is simply a po4 that all their voted go in BUTTTTTTTTTTTT. ..in 2016 Africans in the majority still don’t associate with thwir ancestry….they associate with a million houses of religion….at least one encourages pacivity in the voting system…and ALL the rest encourage self hatred indirectly….pretending that race & ethnicity doesn’t mTter in the real world & choosing onlt to associate with a belief that does not immunizes them to ethnic attacks (political,aconomic or otherwise)….sad sad sad…

      • To clarify…when i say the houses of religion imdirectly encourage self hate to african descendents of the enslaved & victims of the worldwide white supremacy agenda….the mind of african people through their experiences & their history (racism=black skin, nappy hair is ugly)…africans in T&T and elsewhere want to distance themselves from themselves…so with that diseased mindset, any belief system that generalises ‘race doesn’t matter’ isn’t wrong for preaching so BUTTTTTTTTT, the diseased mind uses this as a crutch and escapre rout to disregRd issues affecting people whom they look like….sad sad sad….an ideology that takes the strufpggles against hate & scorn of black skin & thick lips etc…must be encouraged….ecen if itis in oppositon to a specific Religious political movement….who preach hate & scorn of these features

        • BUTTTTTTTTT head Alyssa. You continue with you hate, envy and diatribe of Indian people as though the 1.3 billion of us owe you people something. This is a free country at last check and Africanas have eaten the fat and savoured the good life more than any other ethnic group in this nation. For 37 years out of 50 years you had two oil booms and over a $150 billion plus to pillage and pocket.

          Here is an example of an Africana having millions whilst just being a member of Parliament. Today he is PM but this is his asset as an ordinary MP.

          2002 – $175,000 Car Loan for a BMW SEDAN

          2003 – $500,000 for LANDATE 20 Acres of land

          2003 – 2005 – $3 Million to develop LANDATE

          2005 – $160,000 Car Loan for a KIA SORENTO

          2007 – $300,000 Car Loan for a MERCEDES BENZ
          
2010 – 2011 $2.12 Million for Condo at One Woodbrook Place

          2012- $350,000 Car Loan for a BMW X6
2013 –
          2015 about 20 overseas trips Avg $50,000 each = $1 million 

          2014 – $350,000 Car Loan for a BMW X5 SAV
          TOTAL = $7.85 Million

          ButttttHead please write something beyond your Standard 3 education instead of you obsessive impulsive psychosis.

  • Khan, MacDonald and Cuffie must also go for corruption. And Rowley must go for feting with the group of 20 according to SKIPPY for playing all ah we just before the ELECTIONS in SEPT 2015. We doh want no cabal running we affairs. Rowley and Imbert should also go for building house together under the rule of dictator Manning and each ah food from we tax monies then. Rowley we are coming to get you Julien and Jones for thiefing we out. The war now start! No aint playing we again.

  • Mayor TimKee really had no choice in the circumstances, under any kind of political calculation. Had he hung tough, he would have weakened the PM and the party, and he would have rendered himself ineffective in the post. This way, he can remain welcome in the party in the private party post of Treasurer, and he may yet live to fight another day in some other public post.

    But having acknowledged that, PM Rowley must take heed of what really has gone on. As politically astute as he is, I don’t have to draw a picture. But fault lines have now arisen in his support base. How he will bridge the divide we will see.

    But I have to reiterate that the best political calculation is to stand on the side of the eternal verities. Always. That way God is on your side. If God is not on your side, you lose. It might be a long, slow strangulation (pun not intended), if you lose favour with God, or it might be a swift beheading. Either way, you lose.

    So my advice for PM Rowley: you are like Joshua in the ship, beset by a sudden storm. God is trying to get your attention. Give it to him and get back on course. If he sent you to Nineveh, go to Nineveh. Don’t try to run away to Tarshish. You are going to end up in Nineveh anyway, even if the ride will be uncomfortable and in the belly of a whale. Get back on course! Heal the breach with the true supporters who put you in office! Forget the feminists and their nonsense; Satan has tricked them as he did Eve in the garden. Stick to the eternal verities. That is also the way that indeed is best for women, the children, and the society at large.

    May the Most High guide us through this challenging time, may our leaders find the wisdom, the strength, and the resoluteness required that the ship of state be righted, and sail placidly on course in the direction that He would have it go, safe from satanic buffeting of whatever variety.

    Shalom.

    “And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear Yahweh, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him. Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of Yahweh, because he had told them. Then said they unto him, What shall we do unto thee, that the sea may be calm unto us? for the sea wrought, and was tempestuous. And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you.” (Jonah 9:12)

    • “…Forget the feminists and their nonsense…” Yoruba

      Yoruba, my dear…where are the ‘feminists’ you speak of?? LoL…Yoruba, the selsective protesters of Mayor Raymond Tim-Kee are NOT authentic Feminists…they are FAKE, ignorant Posers!…Nowadays especially, the word ‘feminists’ is rezlly a mis-nomer especially among NON-AFRICAN WOMEN i T&T…maybe some whites…but Indian women? Especially Hindus or Indian muslims…HAH…’Feminists’ has been bandied about and used as a somewhat ‘noble’ replacement or even eupheumism for ‘SASS’….as in neck rolling ‘tempreate’ ‘attitude’ that is supposed to be ‘cute’….that is NOT Feminism…would you like an example of Feminism?? African women by far adopted Feminism in the 60’s when it wasn’t easy to do….leaving the home and going out to work as a protest to the established order…the proof is in the state of the community now…akthough not the intended result…this modern european concept of bith parents being away from the children for most of the day and week 4:00 a.m. to anywhere between after school to late at night has had disastrous consequences in the name of progress…also…more than any other group African women (real unashamed Feminism) are by farm the most masculine anti shbservient to male dominance and rule femLes (as a group) ANYWHERE…and it has created a chasm between african men & women in T&T….This ‘feminism’ has also reduced the perception of the being attractive to men….vast majirity of men find true feminism boorish & wholly unattractive and a turn off…hence this nowaday perversion of feminism to mean ‘sass’ or ‘fiery’ is widely practiced and accepted by men as a ‘spicy ingredient’to the relationship but ultimTely the status quo remains intact..men hafe the penis…
      Also, there is racism in feminism….notice the uproar of Ms Nagakiya….BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, the most abused women by the society as a whole…the most victimised by media etc as women are…?? Who?? BLACK SKINNED, THICK HAIRED WOMEN,…no uproars for them…just like India..lthe prostests over the gang rape is a farce…notice the general skin tone of the protesters?? The women being protested on behalf 8f were NOT untouchables…untouchable rapes number in 15,000 PLUS every year and are prevented from officially reporting, except among themselves.15,000 rapes per year in india…part of religion. Do you think it is a coincidence that Hazel Browne is the head of women’s right’s groups?? Indian women, especially Hindus are religiously loyal to their ancient religion and culture of subservience…nowadays they enjoy the freedoms more and more from Frican women paving the way by boldly defying men…BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, ultimately they won’t rebel against the group (led exclusively by men) Karmla was a front.for shat, anandsi, seweruj, ganga etc…This is one reason why Men in T&T (whites, africans etc) like Indian women….apart from them being the largest ‘resource’ of straight haired women in the society (hair important)…the perception is that indian women literally do whatever the man wants….they are very soothing to the male ego..especialky in the context of ‘intimacy’, they are perceived to be VERY pliant…without objection to anything… (research the true meaning of ‘Chatnee’ in indian culture in T&T…read the literature, listen to the songs and stances of africa women…was it singing sandra with the song about rejecting men’s demand for women to do ‘all sorts’ of sexual ‘deviations’??..again…African women have a tradition of resistance against men…having to be pick up slack as Fathers in delinquent communities…this defines them…Indian women are cocooned in their communities…efen at a young age…Feminism? Lol…how many indiwn women do you see in sports. Who stops them?
      (1) time in the sun=darker skin (bug secret)
      (2) random sports oout of the control of the rreligious organization encourages random social activities with
      african men which can embarass the family i.e. ‘spoil’ their young women
      (3)sporting encourages independent mindedness that undermines the male dominance that is coveted
      (4) No guaranteed wealth from sport’s

      However, although controlled sporting activity should be encouraged…young (african) women running around at an early aged to ‘play’ unsupervised or in an unstructured manner also breeds a lack of discipline and wasted time…more time shojld be focused on developing the ability to stay quiet and think…the pre – requisites for successful academic excellence….DISCIPLINE & DIRECTION is needed amon african women & men…

      • My dear Alyssa,

        Excellent contribution as usual. That is a good breakdown and far more acute than I could give.

        Butttt…. the influence of an international western “force-field” — cultural and sociological — of feminism cannot be discounted. It just plays out to more or less muted degrees in the T&T context, depending on the varying ethnic and class resonators. These you have illuminated very well.

        The main thing is that ultimately it’s a satanically inspired means to undermine and ultimately destroy society.

        It is working to that effect in the carnival. That is a satanic ploy with multi-generational consequences. As a society we have had to “pay de devil”, in ways only a poet can add up, for the licentiousness unleashed at carnival.

        Sometimes it is the woman that must act as a civilizing and restraining influence on the man.

        But in this instance, it is the man that must put himself back in charge, as God intended; Genesis 3:16, 1Peter 3:7; that the society not veer further into the madness that Satan is so cleverly spinning.

        In no way do I suggest or imply “blaming the victim”. Nevertheless, in a multi-generational sense, if you raise a generation of “leggo beasts” (=neglected, latch-key children), because of feminism, is it any wonder that they grow up to act out as such? The roots of the crime problem go back generations. Does the MONS understand? The Education Minister? Hazel Brown?

        The feminists need to be shouted down and shut up. For the greater good, and in particular of women themselves.

        God’s law is good, just, and eternal. Eve, being the weaker vessel, is targeted first by Satan. 6,000 years later, we are still suffering the consequences of that first temptation of Eve by Satan.

        So let us trust and obey God, and protect our womenfolk. That may seem like trying to unscramble an egg, but even that, God can do, if we trust and obey.

        Shalom.

        “Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of Yahweh the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out. There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up. … Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of Yahweh, the rebuke of thy God.” (Isaiah 51:17-20)

      • Gee Alyssa! You managed to put a lot into your piece, while touching on almost every aspect of our racist, class conscious and skin conscious society. Throughout the years, we black have been fooling ourselves into believing that as a plural society “all ah we is one”. This has NEVER BEEN SO. Nor, have we integrated into a melting pot as many of us so much want to believe. I note with particular interest, your views on the ‘light skinned’ Trinidadians. They have always been a segregated group.
        It was part of the psychological teachings of slavery. Case in point, while Bhoe Tewarie, a light skinned Indian have no problem identifying with his dark-skinned hindu brothers, Mariano Browne, a light-skinned black man, is very apprehensive about being identified with the African man. We have built-in schisms in our collective race, while the Indian, with all its religious and ethnic prejudices stick together as an Indian race. As a young man working in the oilfields, I had a good friend, living in the San Fernando area. He is from a prominent family, carrying a Spanish oriented name. He was dark-skinned whilst his sisters were light-skinned. As a friend who is also dark-skinned he never allowed me to have social contacts with his sisters even though I spent time on week ends at his house. We do have cultural and physical biases, that highlight things like hair texture, skin colorations, class, income, education and social prejudices. For example, a dark-skinned black man carrying a name such as ‘Baden Semper’ would be from an upper class family, high income and would most likely associate with the lighter skinned socially. Darker skinned people would almost certainly not be their friends. It is a drawback from slavery. That is how the Steelbandsmen were originally ill-considered to be part of acceptable society. As a young man myself, I was barred from being seen in the company of, or participating in the company of steel bandsmen. This retarded my ability to be musical because I loved the
        Pan but was not allowed to be a part of it. There are many prejudices in our midst, to shed those prejudices, we must confront them and be truthfull about their existence and be purposeful about our need to eradicate those prejudices from our midst.

        • Kian wrote — “As a young man working in the oilfields, I had a good friend, living in the San Fernando area. He is from a prominent family, carrying a Spanish oriented name. He was dark-skinned whilst his sisters were light-skinned.

          This is what I have been saying all along. You Alyssa and Yoruba are nothing but “chamars” in the lower end of the human chain. You can’t change that. The faster you learn to accept this is the more contented you will be in life. It doesn’t matter how much money you have in the bank.

          I have friends who come in all shades and we get along fine. There is one who is married to an Indian girl but he is like you guys brainwashed by the PNM. He sees race in everthing. He don’t talk it but you can just sense it.
          Then there is an older man near 70 plus. He is married to an Indian woman. His conversation always start “I met this Indian fella three years ago….” He always define his characterization of people.
          Me I just avoid such people as much as I can. Their world is far different from the world I grew up in.

          • Your heathen character is still in tact Mamoo. Keep reminding us of your pagan upbringing.
            We do not expect anything different from you.

  • Thank You Kian, Youruba…i want to add that i do not claim to know the heart and mind of all light skinned people…there are many light skinned persons,because of how they were raised & socialized,are in fact more conscious(respectful of slave ancestry & struggle against racism) than say Morgan Job…BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, i would encourage african people (Mariano a case in point) to understand that most people think & behave according to the circumstances they face…not from some mystical connection or genetics…i.e, racism in T&T is not about which continent you originated, but how light your skin is, how soft your hair is or how close to the european you facial features are…(or how far away from african black) This is why I wouldn’t want Mariano Browne,Louie Lee Sing, roger lee, Tony lee (cousins)to represent me as an african person in any sphere, be it radio,politcs or socially….do you know why? This is a root problem with africans…..All of the names i mentioned are BLACK people…but none are black SKINNED…all have skin tones, hair textures, facial features or last names that OTHER ethnic groups (Indians, whitez,real chinese) view them as BETTER THAN other Africans…i.e, They grew up being TREATED BETTER than say John Gill for example…and consciously/SUB-consciously T-H-E-Y
    K-N-O-W I-T-…they cherish this status and better treatment than those who look like joh gill….BUTTTTTTTTTT, because of Pan Africanist ideology & 1 drop rule influences ,they can have the
    best of both worlds…technically they are black, but do they have the SAME experiences as dark skinned john Gill looking
    africans. Also, they are likely because of being viewed as better to grow up with STRONGER SOCIAL TIES to other ethnic groups (Indians,chinese, whites etc)…please observe these realities…Haven’t you noticed that ‘real unity’ i T&T seems to be usually between light skinned, soft haired or even well to do/wealthy Africans and Indians?? Tell me you haven’t noticed the selective pairing…? How do you think these issues manifest in the political arena?? Anil Roberts mother was an Indian woman who grew up in Malaysia,she met his fzther in england……Anil’s father is as black as the midnight sky….both parents were lawyers….he grew up with light brown skin & eyes, upper middle class upbringing aand respect because heis mother was a ‘real’ indian i.e. stronger ties to india than most indians (common logic)….are you surprised he ended up in UNCOPP? .notice he hung out with the UNCOPP crowd, but talked for the cameras as if he was oh so ‘ghetto’?? Did he MARRY a woman who looked like his father?? No….he married another ‘Mix’ ‘reds’ …BUTTTTTTTTTT, because of his demeanor (honed from childhood no doubt) the lower class africans would think “aye…he’s one of “us” “….did he act as such in Parliament(contributions/bills voted on)?? Did he reject the ‘run off’ bill….NO….but you hear a LOT of references to his Indian mother. E.g. Have you heard Louie lee-sing speak of fitzgerald hinds before?? On radio etc?? He refers to him as ‘the/that rastaman’ again..it is condescending & scornful of rastafarianism which is embodied by natural hair,dark skin and class rejection) This is how africans get caught….if Louie didn’t have african facial features he would have been called a racist for making racial overtones BUTTTTTTTTTT, because of the way he looks many africans would have those statements fly way over their heads…..wasn’t it reported tha Louie Lee-Sing back in ’07 thereabout in response to calls from shabazz abd others to have african cultural programming on i95.5fm. …he was reported by shabazz to have said something to the effect”we don’ want another bosnia or sarajevo here…”….i.e. to allow african programming is to invite conflict into the society…CAUSE ethnic division….wow….do you understand the thinking?? Indians have a million radio frequencis playing indian music exclusively, indian political viws exclusively, european music etc…..bug AFRICANS must neuter themselves culturally for ‘the good’ of the entire society….Loui Lee Sing was at the time a High Ranking PNM & Mayor of a vast majority african city.This sickness in the form of thought permeates african trinidadian society & manifests itself in the politics….WHY do we have persons like that REPRESENTING US? Raoul Pantin first and only public address to racism in the entire political term of the UNC was to encourage people to vote FOR her because African people and the ONM are racist…and his daughter (mandisa….irony) did a short film and bla bla bla she is denouncing the term “african” to represent herself….saying she is “caribbean” and that she has european and indigenous in her…..this is what she thinks makes her ‘special’…coincidence? She is lightskinned like daddy who supported a racist hindu india government and abhsed his fellow africans by calling them or the organization they support racist (or insinuated as much)….this is the rot that eats african people….Raoul was typical light skinned soft haired with a spanish name he was adored by non africans…he even sported a fro in the 60’s (it was just a fad for many africans….the ideology too was just a fad) he even endorsed in his articles his daughter’s “i’m not african” stance…typical…that’s why he was so close with ralph maraj….it was raoul who wrote the play ‘BIM’ in which ralph starred & got fa ous in T&T for….typical…africans are the rzcists in raoul’s play…ralph the innocent indian victim of african racism….coincidence? ROul was typical!I95.5 just like power 102 are just like what pnm is increasingly being viewed to be….an african ‘support trap’…..power 102 was made popular by african urban callers, music, african trinidadian philosophical thought, concepts of right & wrong etc. ..it is staffed almost entirely by African hosts and workers BUTTTTTTTTTT, the owner is a UNC chinese supporter….the few indians that actually work there are in managerial positions or CONTROL the show….do you see anything wrong with this picture??….African voices appear to be ‘curbed’ by those in charge through their apparent control of the hosts…soooooo, africans overwhelmingly call in and bring in the revenue…staff the place and create the demand and bring in the sponsorship $$$ via commercials…BUTTTTTTTTTT UNC Chinese & Indians in charge….UNC chinese & Indians….see?? Look at i95.5. …everybody knew it was owned by a PNM Mayor Louie Lee Sing and the station had a PNM majority virew and supposed support (staff…garth christopher supposedly worked there) Then, UNC/PP comes into government and with invisible hands of influence stRt to muzzle and control all radio frequencies with political discussions….i95.5 was a beacon…a lighthouse where africans could express themselves….uhen, strangely Louie sells the radio station (what type of pnm supporter gives up the frequency when it was needed most?? Anyway….before the ink on the contract dries….Iralphmaraj.5fm is the new reality…..all of a sudden akash samaroo (hema’s sidekick) stzrted reading news….i was suspicious of the sale so i observed the changes….if i am not mistzken, i saw an article or possjbly a radio clip saying that the OCM group (One Caribbean Media) that now owns the station wanted ‘a representation of the indian view’ or ‘gojng after the indian market’…..either way the fact is that the clip explicitly stated an interest i Indian…..this is PR for ‘WE taking over now!..’….thus is why indian politcs shoukd not be supported….the india hindu party used their power in obscene angles to literally stamp out the views of africans…not pnm….africans…..with alllllllll their tv stations and radio stations propagati g their views selfishly and unasha edly….any where africans appear to ha e a voice….they are labelled pnm and they bully, buy out or ‘behead’ them….sick sick sick….this is why many dalit scholars point out that Hi duism is INCOMPATIBLE with democracy….Arudathi Roy pointed out that india is a Hindu Corporate state! India is the world’s largest FAKE democracy….how can you ‘hide’ 100’s of millions of SLAVES….under the guise of religion….working for free…boosting the economy….Now, i spoke of the marianos (says he is a Trinidadian in response to questions of his ethnicity) the roger lee, the to y lee and the anil riberts i.e. representztion of the charzcters that emerge out of our social system….bug what of the Joh Gills and the Natalee Ligores??….dthese black skinned persons bare the brunt if the rzcist scorn, discrimination & hate and one would assu e that this makes them automatically conscious ..because of their appearence and place in the discrimatiry system….well… ot necessarily….they more than likely grow up with an urge to ‘please’ or not ‘ruffle’ the feathers of the Louis the rogers and the mRianos….or it manifests as an adoration of them or higher level of respect and appreciation for THEIR views etc…..and the Louie, the rogers and the tonys i turn have these feelings towards the whites and almost whites….see how it works?? This is how oppdression functions as a lever against the bottom (black skinned africans)
    Clarification: i am using the names i listed to reference their PHENOTYPES and the typical social conditions people like that face & internalize in T&T (kees and his wife)….not them PERSONALLy!

    • Re light-skinned people…

      The behaviour of the “mulatto” is a puzzlement of long standing. They do not reliably side with the oppressed as a rule. And more often than not, they themselves become the oppressor when given a chance. The fly in the ointment is that it is sometimes the opposite, and it is the mulatto whose voice is strongest on behalf of the oppressed.

      CLR James wrote the “Black Jacobins” about the Haitian Revolution, and expressed this puzzlement. For the Haitian mulattos established themselves as a class even before the revolution, and in the end were a counter-revolutionary force that became the new elite after the revolution. Duvalier and duvalierism was an attempt to overthrow the entrenched mulatto elite. As another example, the South African coloureds saw things more the white way than the black way during the anti-apartheid struggle. The mulatto class in Louisiana and the American South embraced a multi-fold social stratification predicated upon the quantum of “Negro” blood, so you had such designations as quadroon (quarter “Negro”), octoroon, and other terms that have now gone out of use.

      But then you also had people like Frederick Douglass, who was born into slavery, a mulatto whose father likely also was his master. He became the strongest “black” voice of his generation for abolition. Truth be told, at the other extreme, there was also John Brown, a “white” man, the son of a tanner (i.e. “chamar” in the ludicrous brahminist hindutva casteology), who gave his life seeking to end slavery by leading a slave revolt. But the time was not yet, and he predictably paid with his life.

      What then is the mystery of the mulatto? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. CLR James didn’t find it, as the problem was beyond the Marxist-Leninist kind of analysis he brought to the matter. But he did make a very memorable observation I see now echoed by Kian, — not in the Black Jacobins, but in Beyond the boundary, — when he said, and I paraphrase, “the surest sign that a black man had ‘made it’ in the society was that he kept regular company with people lighter in complexion than himself”.

      But in a society where class and colour are conflated, are we seeing class consciousness at play, or colour consciousness in itself. Having lived in the U.S. and Canada for a long time, where class and colour are less conflated, I want to suggest that the class imperative is what is more at work than any preference for colour per se. Anybody who comes into new wealth will find himself acquiring new friends of equal financial standing, and will try to acquire such friends amongst those who are of the same social standing. For friends and acquaintances, we seek out those who are our peers on certain key measures, notably money, social background, religious belief, educational background and attainment, language and dialect, etc. In societies where colour in itself is a marker of social merit, then that too will enter into the mix. In T&T, colour for sure may be trumped by other indicia of social standing, as implicit in Kian’s example of the “Baden-Semper” family. I don’t know that particular family, but I could give other examples.

      Be all that as it may, the main thing in my estimation is the intensely personal thing that is a sense of right and wrong. Most people will use every advantage at their disposal to claw themselves up as many notches as they can. Therefore, sadly, mulattos in a racially structured society will try to hunt with the hounds and run with the hares, both, wherever advantage may be found. That is the case of Anil Roberts. But then you will have a Frederick Douglass that will stand rigidly on principle and righteousness: “I would unite with anybody to do right, and with nobody to do wrong!” is a famous saying of his. As a mulatto he might have had enjoyed some certain favour, but he was clear-sighted as to what was objectively right, and objectively wrong, and used his advantage to do what was right.

      Toussaint L’Ouverture was a house slave. That gave him certain advantages over the “negre jardin” (field nigger), but he used those advantages to further the cause of right, not selfishly to secure advantage to himself.

      This kind of moral choice in the end is obviously intensely personal. Those who are on a true and intimate walk with God, are the ones apt to have the moral fibre to do what is right, because it is the right thing to do. Such people will be a conundrum to most people, the exception that proves the rule. Sadly, in T&T today, there are few exemplars of people, of any race or colour, who are of such mind and spirit. In this society, every advantage is used for personal gain or enrichment, hardly at all to uplift the society as a whole.

      And those who do try, often as not, will be punished for it: no good deed goes unpunished.

      That punishment may come from the top, the sides, or the bottom. It’s like the masquerade on carnival day: “get in yuh section!”: every masquerader is herded into his own section. And heaven help you if you wander into a wrong band altogether!

      So those who are of weak moral fibre will meekly conform, avoiding the punishments meted out to those who step out of line, and reaping unto themselves the benefits of conformance. Those who are of sterner moral stuff will chafe, and some will find the courage to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. No one can do more.

      Having said all that, Scripture gives us a good heads-up as to who will be who. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Scripture lets us know that very plainly. Therefore, not all mulattoes are created equal. It depends who is the father. Plain and simple. Hence, in my experience, there really is no such thing as dohgla. They will end up being either on one side, or the other. To find out which, ask who is the father. And ask also, are they a bastard? That is a politically incorrect line of thought I know, but I’m not a politician, so I do not have to mince words. And as a servant of God I must speak plainly (the churchmen for sure are not doing it).

      “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of Yahweh; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of Yahweh.” (Deuteronomy 23:2)

      That is the word of God, not what what I say. In Yeshua’s line there was such a bastard, therefore this is an impediment that may be overcome. But God requires ten generations before the stain may be overcome. Many of the light-skin people in the society have bastardy in their near lineage, so God has put us on notice as to what gives with them. Where bastardy is not in question, well then the matter is moot.

      Then there is race-mixing per se:

      “An Ammonite or Moabite (today Chinese) shall not enter into the congregation of Yahweh; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of Yahweh for ever…” (Deuteronomy 23:3)

      Therefore, to look to such as Lee Sing to provide moral leadership is unwise, purely on this scriptural precept. No offence to the man, I admire at the least his plain-spokenness. But I do not embrace him as any sort of saviour to the “Negro”. Word to the wise.

      Last point: how many bastards will be born nine months hence? And what would that imply for the moral fibre of our people? As I said in another post, we need to be clear as a people, that the carnival is of Satan, and his attack through the carnival is a multi-generational one.

      But be all that as it may, our Redemption is right around the corner. So it is written, so shall it be. Sadly, not all of us will make it.

      Shalom.

      “And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am Yahweh: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.” (Isaiah 49:23)

  • Alyssa, most of what we experience today, is directly as a result of our history of class, skin color and texture of hair. There are many truisms about Trinidad. It might be true to say that it is the most cosmopolitan or the most racially mixed island in the Caribbean but it can also be true to say that it is also the most racist. One of the most salient character observations of the Jamaican character is the pride with which they acknowledge their African heritage and Jamaican culture. One gets the feelings on meeting a Jamaican for the first time that he is an outgrowth of the Jamaican experience. UNLIKE some of those fake Trinidadians, who cherish their rights as Trinidadians but support and worship their ancient culture as though it is something that we must replace our Trinidadian experience with.
    They worship the absurdity of a culture that symbolizes light over darkness, day over night and demonizes rawan over sita. Religion supposedly, culture most definitely and racism most surely. That too passes for Trinidadian culture. We see imitation at its silliest and most transformative forms. Replace calypso with chutney, replace the pan with some piece of drum instrument. Cultural festivals must be made into holidays.
    One of its most ardent blogger is advising Alyssa and myself to accept our lot as dark-skinned people, to be subservient to whatever conditions of discrimination were laid for our existence. One of the natural tenets of the black man is his desire and ability to survive. The Spaniards arrived here and literally wiped out the Arawaks and Caribs. The African survived the harshness of the slave trade and its ruthless treatment of slaves and their descendants. We have been degraded and continues to be, by so-called college graduates, who calls everyone much more intelligent than him, second standard education. He is in fact the biggest idiot who lacks comprehension skills. So much so that he twists and turns objectivity into some kind of hindutva exercise. With complicated and sinister characters like that, no wonder Trinidad is such a messed up country. I believe that this is a very serious topic of conversation because it represents everything that we live and see around us. I95.5fm probably take us for fools. As a matter of fact, I am deeply irked when I hear black women calling and greeting Ralph Maraj as “my darling Ralph”. Read his commentary and you would see there is nothing patriotic about his comments and observations. His future for Trinidad and Tobago reflect a desire for us to be returned to colonial status, only this time by his beloved India.

    • Kian, The Spaniards did not ‘wipe out’ the indigenous peoples of T&T…and their true names were not ‘caribs’ nor ‘arawaks’ this was a LIE…they had their own names. The Spaniards did slaughter the population & DWINDLED it to small numbers BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, they integrated i.e.intermarried…this why many african trinidadians are also part indigenous…this is not unique to T&T…in the caribbean and latin america to a greater degree there is a indigenous/african mix that exists as in what is called ‘caribs’ in santa rosa BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, santa rosa are all mulattoes….Spaniard, african and indigenous…but they seem to ‘speak over’ the african part…he liht skin didn’t come from the indigenous peoples and the african facial features bo e structure came from well…africans…but this exists all over T&T, but sant rosa gets the title because they keep the CULTURE alive…but here are many others who don’t even knkw their heritage because of subsequent intermarriages and migration from the cultural stronghold…

    • It is interesting, that he denies the Indian Policy, yet by seeking to make us chamars — a term which denotationally means simply tanner, but which under brahminist hindutva brainwashing means connotationally someone who is supposedly lower than low, Alyssa correct me if I have that wrong — he is proving the validity of Item #3 of it, namely the indo desire to “make the niggas (sic) your slaves”. As Alyssa says, “what a clown!”.

      To all appearances they have already won the war against the “Negro”. We didn’t even know they were at war with us, we so believed our own slogans, like together we aspire… etc. They control the media, the markets, medicine, law, HUWI (thanks Alyssa), and they’re still teefing in SEA, therefore commanding the best secondary places.

      They consider it a major setback that Rowley, –whom even such rank nincompoops as our dear fellow blogger, from a hereditary line of rank nincompoops, would like to put into the inferior category of brahminist imagination called “chamar”, — evicted UNC from their suck-hold on the Treasury. And so of course out of that foul swamp of envy and hatred that is brahminist casteocracy, emerges Item #1 of the Indian Policy, “Make the country ungovernable!”. I hope our people are watching and taking note.

      Nevertheless, God said He would do it to us, and for our disobedience:

      “The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.” (Deuteronomy 28:43)

      Buttttt… He also said that He would redeem us, and in the same way that He redeemed our forefathers from bondage in ancient Egypt. At His hand, and by His mercy, and His grace. But we must cry out in prayer and repentance for our manifold and manifest misdeeds. That redemption is near at hand:

      “Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: Thus saith thy Lord Yahweh, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.” (Isaiah 51:21-23)

      Shalom.

      “And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am Yahweh: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.” (Isaiah 49:23)

      • Yoruba…do you know what it is truly evil about the racist bobol in sea….’teefing’ ?? Indians as a community, because of their communal focus on organization & climbing the social ladder via academic excellence…i EXPECT them to have a larger number of top scorers as Africans are disorganized & do NOT have a communal focus on education & academic EXCELLENCE as a GROUP!So WHY WHY WHY do this evil against children?? Eh? Why? Same thing at The H.U.W.I. i expect larger number of indians in Medicine but Not like THAT!…Also, if we look at where the rot begins….there is a racist system in place fro nursey to tertiary with exclusion from ‘good’ nurseries to ‘good’ primary schools to ‘good’ secondary schools etc…whereever yoh have the caste minded, they will attempt to rig the system for ‘their’ own…

  • Mastefully written Yoruba…Bravo!

    • Thank you. All praise to the Most High. May He uplift us all who labour in this particular vineyard…

      Take a look at this youtube video treating with the lot of a Bantu tribe that got somehow stranded in India.

      It seems to vindicate what we see coming out of the one,– that by dictate apparently of dharma, is the hereditary nincompoop on the blog, — who would make of the Bantu/”Negro” in this land “honorary chamars”. That would be kind apparently. For our Bantu brethren in India are so far beneath even untouchability that they might even be deemed “outtouchable”. They had to flee into deep forest to escape brahminist disdain. The maroon tradition in another land. They at the least have retained a noble dignity, and that readiness of smile and laughter that distinguishes our people even under the greatest hardship. May God bless them, as He comes to deliver His people in all the lands whereto He has scattered us:

      “…Yahweh thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither Yahweh thy God hath scattered thee. If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will Yahweh thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And Yahweh thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, …” (Deuteronomy 30:3-5)

      Shalom.

      “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)

      • One must accept his lot in life, it is the way of this world. Kian, Alyssa and Yoruba you cannot get away from being modern day chamars. The PNM could not after 37 years of uninterrupted leadership change the ways of the chamars in Laventille, Morvant and Beetham.

        Giving people money does not change them only makes them greedy and wanting more. It creates a dependency syndrome and takes away any semblance of humanity and human dignity.

        The PNM wants their supporters to always depend on the treasury to take care of them and their descendants. So massive housing, exclusive jobs, social spending will ensure the new chamar remains a slave. As is evident in this victimology writings of you three. Cheers.

        • One must accept his (sic) lot in life…

          As a servant of God, trust me when I say I agree with that much of what you say.

          Obviously, you do not, though, making you a hypocrite. As a hereditary coolie by brahminist dharma doctrine, why do you seek to rise above that lot?

          Why do you seek to “make the niggas (sic) your slaves” (Item #3 of the Indian Policy)?

          You deny any such thing, but in the same breath you would make us into “chamars”. Not only are you a hypocrite, you are a nincompoop.

          Heed your own advice. Accept your lot in life not only as a hereditary coolie by dint of dharma, but as a hereditary nincompoop by obvious lack of what is required to be anything better.

          In any case, we the “Negro”/Bantu most certainly have been enslaved. As Israelites of the seed, we were enslaved in ancient times by Pharaoh. And in recent times, we have been enslaved by your brethren of the seed, Edomite Jews and Edomite WASPs (for the indo-Aryan are also of the Edomite family tree.)

          To be enslaved, however, does not make us hereditary slaves, or slaves per se. Our enslavement involved king, prince, priest, prophet, commoner… *all* of us, in accordance with prophecy. That lot we have accepted. Indeed we have had no choice in the matter, for the efforts of every would-be redeemer have failed. Frederick Douglass, Marcus Garvey, du Bois, Malcolm X, Kwame Toure, Sylvester Williams, Eric Williams… all great men, all sons of men who had been enslaved, but shining princes all of them, and none of them hereditary coolies either by occupation or lot.

          But as we accept our lot, mostly chafing at it as we do so, we also look forward to embracing our redemption, which also is part of our lot. For as Israelites of the seed, our lot indeed is to inherit the kingdom.

          “But the saints of the most High (i.e. the Chosen of God) shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.” (Daniel 7:18)

          So it is written, so shall it be.

          Moreover, it is also written, that the lot of those who enslaved us and/or seek to enslave us, will be for themselves to become enslaved:

          “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity…” (Revelation 13:10)

          So it is written, so shall it be.

          And just so that there is no doubt, the Edomite Jews who organized the trans-Atlantic slave trade, will face the following fate:

          “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)

          So it is written, so shall it be.

          Not only the Edomite Jews. Also:

          “And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am Yahweh: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.” (Isaiah 49:23)

          So it is written, so shall it be.

          And just so that there is no doubt that this redemption is about us, the “Negro”, He lets us also to know who we are with this:

          “But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.” (Isaiah 42:22)

          Who occupies the prison-houses more than we? Who is it that has received no reparation for our enslavement (none saith Restore)?

          And last:

          “Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.” (Isaiah 51:22-23)

          That describes us, and our redemption. So written, so shall it be.

          So our lot is clear. It is not to be hereditary chamar, or slave. Be accordingly rebuked.

          Shalom.

          “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou *shalt* condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness is of me, saith Yahweh.” (Isaiah 54:17)

          • While we are on this topic, and with my back firmly toward the hereditary nincompoop, rather toward my brethren of the seed, the Bantu/”Negro”, let me mount the metaphorical pulpit to address the issue of the 400-year prophecy, to which also we are a prophetic fit:

            “And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.” (Genesis 15:13-14)

            I address it, because our churchmen do not address it, and if they do, they get it wrong.

            We the “Negro” of the former British colonies of the West, — that is, the tribes specifically of Judah and Benjamin, the true “Jew” of the southern kingdom, — are the fulfillment of this prophecy. The fulfillment occurred 1611-2011. I say so under guidance as a Nazarite Servant of Yahweh; hear or forebear.

            This made no sense to me when I was first given it, so I will understand if one’s first reaction is to dismiss it. But here is how this fulfillment breaks down:

            The event that marked the start of the 400-year captivity was the first publication, in 1611, of the King James Bible. And the event that marked the end of the captivity, correspondingly, was the 400-th anniversary of its first publication, in 2011. This fulfillment — 1611-2011 — by the “Negro” of the West, the descendants of the victims of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, satisfies the main elements of the prophecy: the 400 years, the affliction, moreover through servitude, and in a land not ours.

            The 400-year captivity did not start with a dramatic event such as the sack of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, defining a sea change in the condition of Israel as a people. And it did not end with an equally dramatic event such as the Israelite Exodus from Egypt, which also marked a sea change. Rather, the 400-year captivity is demarcated at one end by the publication of the King James Bible, and at the other end, by the celebration of its 400th anniversary. These are well defined events, but mark no obvious sea change in our condition as a people, and moreover they are events that might easily pass unnoticed and unremarked. This requires careful examination and probing, that we might understand what Yahweh intends us to understand from it.

            Note that the captivity is declared formally over, even as we the captives seem to all intents and purposes a destroyed people. This also was prophesied:

            “17Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of Yahweh the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.
            18There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.
            ….
            20Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of Yahweh, the rebuke of thy God.
            21Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:
            22Thus saith thy Lord Yahweh, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:
            23But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over. ” (Isaiah 51:17-18, 20-23)

            Note the tense in verse 17 — “hast drunk” — and in verse 22 — “have taken” — at the same time that the condition of our sons is described in stark terms in verse 20, as that of a “wild bull” caught in a “net”. Thus, at one and the same time, Isaiah describes the completeness of our destruction as a people, and the hope that attaches to the use of the perfect tense, that suggests the destruction is over.

            That indeed is the promise of verse 22, where Yahweh says through the prophet, “I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling”. Note again the use of the tense indicating a completed action. This is what corresponds to the formal lifting of our captivity, even as the actual return and regathering have not yet taken place.

            Finally, note also the promised judgement of verse 23: “I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee” — future tense relative to the completed action of verse 22. This promised judgement corresponds to that of Genesis 15:14 — “that nation” that afflicted us is to be judged, obviously at the end of the captivity. Here at Isaiah 51:23, the form of the judgement is described: that which they did to us will be done in turn unto them.

            This does not mean that our condition as a people magically changed in 2011. That must await the final fulfilment of Genesis 15:14.

            This explains, by the way:

            “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) … ” (Revelation 2:9)

            where our poverty is spoken of in the same breath as it is asserted, “but thou art rich”.

            At the end of our 400-year captivity, even with the curse formally lifted, we are a poor people, moreover in the midst now of the tribulation. But with the captivity and the curses lifted, we are like the heir to a huge fortune, still living homeless in the streets, unaware of his inheritance. Give it time; Yahweh has his protocol, and it will be adhered to. But the *formal* end of the captivity also means that the bell has rung, as for the last lap of a match sprint, and any moment now the redemption, and judgement, both, will come. The precise time is known only to Yahweh.

            The first and obvious question is what is it about King James and his authorized Bible that could let him, and it, serve as the demarcator of the beginning of the 400 years of captivity.

            The link goes back to Tea Tephi, the daughter of the last king of Judah, Zedekiah. After Zedekiah and all his sons were killed, the inheritance passed to this daughter, in accordance with the provisions of the Law of female inheritance (Numbers 36:3-9, 27:8) handed down through Moses.

            It is the inheritance due the king of Judah — the throne of David — that yielded to King James the authority to authorize the “book of the kings of Israel and Judah” (1 Chronicles 9:1) now known as the Bible. For the sceptre of Judah, — also the pillar of Jacob, known today as the Stone of Scone upon which British Monarchs are coronated,– passed by inheritance from Tea Tephi to Ireland, where she married an Israelite of the tribe of Judah, who later became king of Ireland. Along that line, the sceptre of Judah passed as an inheritance to British kings of the United Kingdom, starting with James I of England and VI of Scotland, who unified the thrones. Although that line became Edomite by paternal seedline, the sceptre of Judah has remained part of their inheritance, and so the British Monarch remains titularly “king of Judah”, until Shiloh come:

            “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” (Genesis 49:10)

            (This btw means that Ras Tafari, Haile Selassie I, last emperor of Ethiopia, did not wield the sceptre of Judah, either by right or inheritance.)

            It is as King of Judah, — by right of inheritance traced back to Tea Tephi, daughter of Zedekiah, the last king of the southern kingdom functioning as a state,– that King James authorized the King James Bible. Yahweh does nothing except by a Protocol that He established.

            There is no more appropriate marker of great events in the national life of the sons of Jacob, than the doings of the line of kings and queens that wield the “sceptre of Judah”.

            Yahweh had to find a way to make his Word “nigh” to us, even in captivity. For he had told the children of Israel, that his Word was not “far off”, rather “very nigh”:

            “11For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
            14But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. ” (Deuteronomy 30:11,14)

            This was the accomplishment of the King James Bible. As slaves and captives we were in no position to preserve the Word. Therefore, the Word was instead preserved by our Edomite brethren. Esau would be Yahweh’s instrument both to put us into captivity, and also to preserve his Word.

            And he assuredly put us into captivity, wielding the sceptre of Judah as he did so. As one wielding the sceptre of Judah, his writ extended to cover the sons of Judah, the southern kingdom tribes of Judah and Benjamin.

            King James granted — in 1607, while the King James Bible was still in preparation (1604-1611) — the Royal Charter that established Jamestown, which was named after him. Historical records indicate that in August, 1619: “Twenty blacks are purchased from a passing Portuguese slave ship bound from Luanda, Angola, to Vera Cruz. They may not have been the first, since some 32 Africans were noted five months earlier in a Virginia census of 1619.”; google Jamestown timeline.

            The Israelites that were kidnapped and taken to the British colonies were of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Captive children of Judah were taken to the American colonies of Britain (later the United States), while those of Benjamin were taken to the British West Indian colonies. Judah and Benjamin together had constituted the southern kingdom, also known as the kingdom of Judah (1 Kings 12:21, 2 Chronicles 11:1).

            That “seed” of Abraham that fulfilled Genesis 15:13 was therefore specifically the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. The 400 years were exact, and demarcated by the writ of King James, when he authorized the King James Bible. I am guided in this matter; the reader may hear or forebear.

            Although the trans-Atlantic slave trade encompassed all the tribes of Israel, only Judah and Benjamin — those of the old kingdom of Judah — specifically fell under the writ of King James, and so narrowly fulfill the 400-year captivity prophesied by Genesis 15:13.

            The next question is whether the enslavement of the whole nation of Israel under Pharaoh was not the fulfillment of Genesis 15:13. The answer is no, although that is what is wrongly taught in the churches. We know that is false, because Joseph died 110 years; Genesis 50:26. He became viceroy of Egypt at 30, therefore served 80 years. During that time, Israel prospered and was not enslaved. This number must be subtracted from Israel’s sojourn in Egypt which was (at most) 430 years; Exodus 12:40-41. Therefore the nation of Israel served in bondage under Pharaoh (at most) 350 years. Therefore, we must look for a modern fulfillment of Genesis 15:13.

            Further questions pertain to the fact that the trans-Atlantic slave trade started much earlier than 1611.

            The broader trans-Atlantic slave trade started much earlier than 1611. Pope Nicolas V issued a papal bull as early as 1452, granting permission to the Kings of Spain and Portugal to bring “Saracens and pagans” into “perpetual slavery”; see papap Bull, Dum Diversas. This formed the legal basis for the trans-Atlantic slave trade involving enslaved Israelites brought from Africa to the Spanish and Portuguese colonies. The scattered Israelites remained tribally separate in enslavement, e.g., the tribe of Ephraim made it to Puerto Rico, Simeon to Dominican Republic, Levi to Haiti, Asher to Brazil, etc. All the tribes fulfilled the trans-Atlantic slave trade prophesied at Deuteronomy 28:68, but only Judah and Benjamin specifically fulfilled the 400-year captivity marked by the publication by King James of his authorized version.

            There is another point here to understand. In the fulfilment of the enslavement prophecy (Deuteronomy 28:68), Yahweh distinguished the northern kingdom from the southern kingdom. The Israelites of the northern kingdom were enslaved under authority of the Pope, while the Israelites of Judah were enslaved under authority of a king wielding the scepter of Judah.

            Thus the division of the nation of Israel into northern and southern kingdoms was preserved as both went into captivity. As the northern kingdom was scattered 100-200 years earlier than the southern kingdom (Judah) in ancient times, so also the northern-kingdom Israelites would suffer earlier enslavement under the trans-Atlantic slave trade than southern-kingdom Judahites. Therefore, the historical fact that the trans-Atlantic slave trade started with the Spanish and Portuguese much earlier than 1611 does not vitiate the 400-year prophecy, since the latter pertains narrowly to Judah.

            In addition, it is to be noted that the northern kingdom was guilty of apostasy starting with its very fist king, Jeroboam. So too, papal authority early became apostate, as was prophesied:

            “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Daniel 7:25)

            Under authority of the pope, the feasts established for the children of Israel were changed, starting with that prescribed under the fourth commandment — the observation of the sabbath: this was changed under papal authority from the seventh day of the week to the first day (“Sunday”). And as the northern kingdom under Jeroboam fell into idolatry, so too the Church established by Peter, Paul and the apostles, fell into idolatry, and consciously sought to distance itself from the law handed down through Moses, and for the same reasons — the assertion and preservation of temporal power under spiritual guise.

            “A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.” (Jeremiah 50:38)

            We see today that the erstwhile northern-kingdom enslaved Israelites of the trans-Atlantic slave trade are overwhelmingly Roman Catholic, and in any case “mad upon their idols”, whether of Catholic, Vodun, Santeria, Candomble, or other variety, as the prophet Jeremiah let us know. The Church of England, and of Scotland, although protestant, fell into or did not entirely discard the apostasy into which the Roman Catholic church was led, including for example Sunday worship instead of the Sabbath, not to mention the observance of Christmas, Easter, and other pagan “holidays”, and the non-observance of the holy days prescribed by Yahweh, which were derided as being “Jewish”. Meantime the so-called “Jewish” people are not Israelite of the seed at all, and pursuing their own idolatries under so-called “Judaism”.

            As Yahweh prepared to send his children into the 400-year captivity, he moved his servant, King James, Edomite yes but heir to the sceptre of Judah, to commission a group of scholars to prepare an accurate translation of the book that would find its way to the scattered children of Israel, wherever they would be scattered.

            This same book would also be preached to the entire world, as it has been translated into over 2,000 languages.

            “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Matthew 24:14)

            So written, so it is. Prophecy fulfilled.

            So, my “Negro”/Bantu brethren, be of no doubt that we are indeed children of Israel. We the “Negro” of the former British colonies of the West — the U.S. and the former British West Indies — are specifically of the southern kingdom tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Hear or forebear. We have fulfilled Genesis 15:13. Now remains to be fulfilled Genesis 15:14 — the judgement on “that nation”, specifically the Edomities, and our “coming out with great substance”. That time is truly near at hand. Be accordingly notified.

            Shalom.

            “Thus saith thy Lord Yahweh, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I *will* put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.” (Isaiah 51:22-23)

Its a perversion of entre-preneur….the former exists by successfully tendering for solely government contracts…i.e. without government contracts they will not exist….they are DEPENDENT on the state i.e. the treasury….Many of the billionaire and millionaire contractors in T&T are Tender-preneur s….and yet they are wealthy….so dependency is an abusive term for lower classes….and an abusive, selective one….interestingly in developed countries these would be respected people…at least they WANT to work….this is common in the U.S and UK….the government us expected to provide as many jobs as possible…Yoruba. ..have you ever heard americans canadians or persons in the UK insult or insinuate dependency on the government not for welfare by9ut JOBS???
          Finally Mamoo…do you know what ddespicable dependency is?? The true evils that SHOULD be condemned?? Those deceitful crooks who deliberately plant and farm in flood prone areas EACH YEAR and each year they seek monetary compensation for lost crops….i.e. they plant as much as they want and don’t have to tote the goods to the mRket and soend long days selling them they just wait for the floods and effectively government buys USELESS crops….so they ‘depend’ in fleecing the treasury each year for survival….what is the ethnicity of these people whom i speak Mamoo
          . Everybody knows….are they chamars…authentic chamars mamoo??..any honest person would say that the beginning of dependency with african people started duriing enslavement…they (my ancestors) were forced to work for centuries without pay and were forced to DEPEND ON the slavemaster for food and shelter…they eere forced into a dependent existence…after slavery this dependence manifested not as tbieves and crooks thinking of ways to be wealthy off of suffering of other ethnic groups (illicit drugs, car stealing racket, fraud in every manner etc) Nooooo Mamoo, africans dependency is not thinking outside the box enough….expecting to go to someone to work for a wage…but honest work..But since 1956 Mamoo’s family and temple (unc/dlp/ulf/nar) kept repeating these stink lies,that Dr. Williams and the PNM created dependency bh ‘givi g JOBS’…LIE!

          • Quite right, Alyssa. You have nailed it, and quite comprehensively….

            The only thing I would add is the scriptural dimension:

            “Because thou servedst not Yahweh thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which Yahweh shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things…” (Deuteronomy 28:47-48)

            It was prophesied that we would serve our enemies to acquire all our wants and needs. Not having ownership of land, there is no other option. One way or another, we must sell our sweat, talent, or creativity, in order to obtain all our wants. That is the survival imperative derided as “dependency syndrome”.

            God put us in that situation that we might ask, why? And in asking why, we are supposed to find the answer that is pre-ordained, and lies in the predicate, “because thou servedst not Yahweh thy God …”. The solution lies clearly in that predicate. Those of atheist mind-set, and scoffers, seek to avoid the clear implication.

            We are nothing if not an abundantly gifted and talented people. We elicit envy far more so than disdain in reality, for envy is often disguised as disdain. Nevertheless, it remains an astonishment that a people as gifted, as strong, as resilient as we are, should be so dependent upon the “enemy” for our survival. But that too was prophesied, and we are a fulfillment:

            “And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.” (Deuteronomy 28:37)

            What is hard to take is the disdain of hereditary miscreants and simpletons sitting on, likely as not, stolen wealth, moreover stolen from us under any equitable calculation, and turning around and pointing fingers…

            Nevertheless, the solution to our problems lies in righteousness, not in emulation of the wicked already condemned to destruction: God’w word, not mine.

            Shalom.

            “And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither Yahweh thy God hath driven thee, And shalt return unto Yahweh thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then Yahweh thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.” (Deuteronomy 30:1-3)

          • Alyssa by your own admission chamars are dark skin people. They are at the bottom of the human chain. Their level of intelligence is such that progress and progressive reasoning is an alien and insultive word.

            As such the fair skin people will always be the dominant group in TnT. If u give chamar power the murder rate increases, the price of food goes up, thiefin increases and the general mood of the nation is depressing.

            If u think I am wrong take a look at Africa. The Congo sees 35,000 reported rapes per year, government soldiers are the main culprits. Look at South Africa they rape more babies there than any other part of the world. The witch doctors tell them that the cure for AIDS is to rape a baby. Nigeria is suppose to be the leader but Boko Haram is doing unspeakable criminal acts against the people in the North. Not to be outdone Al Shabab is waging a terrible war in Somalia.

            The model I See TNT adopting is the Sudanese approach of governance. Let us punish those people in the south, no hospital, no UWI campus, no highway. In Sudan 20 plus years of war with over 2 million dead, it is clear that no lessons has been learnt in human relations and development. No understanding of building as Paul the Apostle instructions still stand today “do all things for edification (building)”. The chamars in Laventille, Morvant and Beetham have only one thing in mind “ethnic domination”. That is see in you three….

  • PS. Re King James I of England and VI of Scotland

    Here is a photo of King James where the “touch of the tar brush” is evident

    and a photo of Charles II his descendant

    They had Israelite blood, but were Edomite (also originally dark-skinned) on the paternal side

  • Yoruba,Kian…look how the plot thickens…In his contribution to the Insp. Roger Alexander & Ian Alleyne Imbroglio…Anand Ramesar is questioning the viability Of Insp. Alexander’s show….strange eh?? Remeber Nizam Mohammed’s now infamous Speech?? Do you recall Nizam’s Allegation/Revelation that he received a complaint from an Anand Ramesar about the ethnicity Of the panel overseeing promotions???The impression given was that there only or To many africans. Also,This is why the study of Law is a much
    needed profession….i listened to the general public discussing ‘excessive force’ and whether or not alexander used it….what civilians do not understand, is that ‘excessive force’ is a legal and technical term….it is very specific…so ewhat opened to i terpretation BUTTTTTTTTTT LEGALLY with a sound understanding of the LEGAL/TECHNICAL definition i.e one cannot simply say that alexander handled him too rough…therefore it was excessive force….handling someone ‘rough’ is relative to the situation….if you NEED 100 lbs to subdue so eone and you use 200 it is excessive BUTTTTTTTTTT if you need 10,000 lbs to subdue someone and it is used that is NOT excessive!…i other words Ian Alleyene seem to use all his might to resist being subdued and Insp. Alexander had to use AT LEAST THAT to subdue him….in other words the force used by Alexander was actually determined by Ian’s use if force to resist….if you observe the clips….Ian violently resisted and alexander tried to casually subdue him BUTTTTTTTTTT with the amount of force from the Ian’s attempt to resist + Alexander’s force to subdue + Ian’s backpeddling towards the exit which the car was directly in front of. Alexander merely tried to direct him and the scuffle OUT of the compound…similarly to what a bouncer is trained to do….put simply….Insp. Alexander did NOT use excessive force….notice how Ian’s UNC lawyers want to politicize the issue with maximum effect by dragging the PM and NSMinister into it….
