    at first glance i thought that was a man. Kind of looked like Bernard Wiltshire or Mark Marie with a bald head. GRANTED! I fully appreciate women who can cut or shave their heads vs the horrid weave and wig epidemic we are going through.

    Back to the topic, congratulations madam on your achievement.

    Every time I hear our regional officials and politicians swearing an oath to King Charles, his heirs and successors, I squirm. Why are our people still genuflecting and worshipping our former slave owners who have committed unthinkable crimes against our forebears?

    It’s time for all these constitutional monarchy to go republic. Our race is the only one that has an enduring affinity for our oppressors.

    Sorry, but I have no congratulation for any regional official who bows to these neo-colonialists and imposters.

      Colonial nonsense we in the Caribbean happily embrace. We glorify exotic stuff and relish any thing indigenous.

      No wonder many Africans repudiate us who are from the Caribbean. They refer to us disparagingly as children of slaves.

        Exactly, they refer to us children of slaves. You said to me “We should have some compassion for these people” on that Antiguan post. Why should I have compassion for the very same people that sold our ancestors into slavery, and still insult us to this very day?

        Yes, Africans themselves sold us into slavery. People always love to blame the white man but that’s only a small part of the story.

        They’re not “My people”, therefore I don’t care about them or have any compassion for them. Anyone that sells there own people for weapons, clothes, alcohol etc is scum of the earth & deserve to die

          False narrative. Many turncoats did terrible things during those wars by Europeans to take the Continent and enslave about half the world’s population then, no different from the Euro Jews situation, like you have no idea on your one-track anti-African quest to fix war and slavery.

          For instance, not long ago a new Jewish state jailed dozens of holocaust survivors who served as camp Kapos (guards) and Ghetto police under the nazzis. A prof from Hebrew Univ, Dan Porat, brought to light many little-known trials of dozens of Jewish survivors 1950 – 1972 who collaborated with Nazzis. Heart breaking isn’t it. Don’t forget to mention in your campaign.

          War breeds turncoats that even cost countries important wars, however, Africans selling Africans is only a narrative of lies by some state-sanctioned historians and missionaries of the perpetrators, and you buy that, even campaigning. Don’t believe those lies, they are aimed to keep you ignorant and keep your continent.

          Euro merchants in 1500s & 1600s brought over 1 million European slaves from as far north as Iceland to North Africa. They were paid reparations to stop, do you mind?

        Point taken, I think you mean well but be careful quoting African people on the Continent as we have been under tremendous pressure and brainwashing to divide us in the Caribbean and those at home 🏡

        Ibo, it may sound harsh but we are more a mixture of everything, specially black and white than African for whatever reason. It does not bother me one iota bro that racially most of us are mongrels but human beings all the same just like anyone else on this planet. What else do you want, racial purity just like the nazis then.
