The children need flogging, whose children need flogging? Anybody flogging white people children? No! and Nobody flogging Indian children. They read Dickens wrongly.
A day in this island’s life is cynicism incarnate for there is nothing on which to anchor the black mob and pride in their chosen profession makes cynical thoughts that nothing has worth but money and since Barbados is controlled by white people to fight will results in them and their family being interfered with so the best thing is to bite dignity and find it in enslavement.
