So as I sat in the ultra-modern, $30-million, Chinese donated,
Thomas A Robinson National Stadium being awed by the different events unfolding in front of me,
I could not help noticing the many FLAGS of the many different nations taking part in the IAAF RELAYS.
I looked and Looked and LOOKED ,,, but look as I might, there was
NO JAMAICAN FLAG AMONG These.
Tell me if you guys see one.
Now, whether it was to see him WIN, LOSE, or DRAW , many of the host Nations People
ENSURED that MANY JAMAICAN GUESTS KNEW that WE were PERSONA NON GRATA.
We have, or should have come a long way from slavery, but it seems only in MATERIAL gain but not in spirit nor INTELLECT and this was on BLATANT display those two days.
What struck me the hardest was that a few days later I heard on a radio call in program,
one caller LOUDLY DECLARING ON NATIONAL RADIO that ,
“of course we had a problem, there were just too many Jamaicans there”.
House slaves used to be more euphemistic about their disdain for us other NEGROES.
Let me REMIND you, WE ARE ALL PEOPLE,
moreso to the ones being so STUPIDLY IGNORANT,
WE ARE ALL BLACK PEOPLE.
The fastest thing to say is, “THIS IS THE BAHAMAS” as if NO ONE ELSE is welcome
or has ANY RIGHTS here, yet everywhere you turn is another CULTURE’S,
MUSIC, FASHION and FOOD.
