“We do not want to lock up anybody.”

This society lets
itself down by letting its leaders let it down. Leaders treat people like dirt, all they have to do is win and it is all
smiles and shake hands because access to the big guy is wanted. They
do it time and time again.
Morris – Leader Of Barbados Workers Union.
Do not get vex with
Robert Bobby Morris, he does not know his history and he makes
decisions and comes up with things because, what he learnt did not
teach him to sidestep those in force but to revere and look up to his
former masters. He thinks these people are divinely appointed.
on a recent television programme said that 18th
century large plantation slave owners, the Alleynes, are
“still rich worldwide” and glowingly said that they should be
invited back for heritage tourism. How do we explain this? Go back
and bring back slave owners. Alleynes at one time owned from
Holetown down to Porters and across to parts of St. Thomas, St.
Andrew all the way down to Belleplaine.
They are direct
descendents of Alleynes, Lowthers, Carringtons and Tudors in
Barbados, are they not grand enough?
Morris cannot say
that the Alleynes were bad. He cannot say that about any of the St.
Johns are any Goddard or Lowther, my family. He is playing the
monkey with the cup: he has Irish blood, he telephoned one white and
asked if they knew their family story and how important they were.
Perhaps he should
bring back his former slave owner Morris, who bought his ancestors as
a whole batch of Kwakas, he did not buy them one by one. The Kwaka
characteristically have no neck just like Morris. Idid Amin is one.
How do we
understand Morris’ thinking – at what is he trying to get?
Reparation? What are the Alleynes going to do here? Will they
contribute money to develop the place? When they come back are they
going to live and set up a plantation with slaves – which in
today’s currency means gated-community.
Morris is begging
whites to toy with him. Read the 2007 Museum
magazine; he is offering to be their choir boy.
