  1. Where are all these guns coming from and why? Such a small island why the need for such weapons? Perhaps these white saviors/religious leaders are really doing more harm than good. Stay woke people and uprise.

  2. The only time three black man working hard. 100 mph winds but you still find the time to cooperate and organize a party to go and to break into a container to go and steal. I swear, we work harder in this country if we know it is wrong than if it is right.

    • It is one of those times you wish a piece of galvanise would be swirling around their heads. Dam thieves.

    • How do you know the three males were black? Yet another example of you denigrating black people without no cause. Just say how you really feel

      • How I feel is that I should make them my human resource advisors. It's hard enough getting staff to come to work on time on a rainy day. These guys are hustling hard to steal another man's bread during a full blown tropical storm!

      • Zeigy’s has low opinion of Blacks and he adds his negativity liberally on issues like salt and pepper on a plate of food. His insidious poison will not slip unaware into the psyche of conscious Black people. "The only time three black man working hard", that kind of writing seems to be the kind of word selection which is generated by a robot - not a sentient being!

        • All right. I was wrong to say that about black people. I do know hard working black people. But sometimes it feels like I know many more lazy black people because I enter a place of business and the workers are always complaining about overtime, their lunch hour and watching the clock for when it's time to leave work. I have yet to figure out Regal Foods closing time because they seem to close five minutes before the hour on random days. i have to pump my own gas at gas stations because the attendant is struggling to write a bill for another customer and by the time I finish putting $200 in my tank she walks up to me and says, "Can I help you?"

          And please don't dismiss my criticism as poison because as black people we need to be mindful of our shortcomings so we can guard against it. Only then can we start to get the respect we seek. Malcolm X did a service to foster pride in black people. He and Martin Luther King Jr. delivered similar messages but King also had this to say, "Do you know that Negroes are 10 percent of the population of St. Louis and are responsible for 58% of its crimes? We’ve got to face that. And we’ve got to do something about our moral standards. We know that there are many things wrong in the white world, but there are many things wrong in the black world, too. We can’t keep on blaming the white man. There are things we must do for ourselves."
