When Blacks forget their History of Survival:

We are now deep in Black History Month but can hardly tell because Black Lives still seem not to matter and we are better off neither being seen nor heardā€¦ As the World changes before our very eyes, some things remain unchanged while some that took Centuries now happen in mere yearsā€¦ Slaves still put their Hope and Trust in the fables of White Gods and Imaginary Friends.

At the same time, the Death we once saw as a process where only the very old and Soldiers died is now big Business and it is as common as rain for Children to die before getting a chance to liveā€¦ As we move from Fake History to Fake News and Alternate Facts we watch them spend more time talking to the Phone in their Hand than speaking Face to Face or walking Hand in Hand.

We are confused because they seem more confused than ever as their empty Lives lose track of Facts and plunge them into an abyss of virtual realityā€¦ What is more troubling is that this modern day affliction is Worldwide, from America to Tortola, and even if we know the Remedy for this condition we ignore it or make excuses until it is too late or it becomes our turn to grieve.

None of this is necessary and we should know better ā€“ You may think the Struggle is a lost cause or that you are somehow blessed or immune but you would be wrongā€¦ There should be no doubt that, whether it is Spin-off from Trumpā€™s Election, Blowback from BREXIT or Shenanigans from our leaders we will all feel the Heat and drown in the avalanche because we are all in this together.

We can no longer feel apart - You may recall me explaining how the US Election was stolen by Russia and that Trump and Gang were guilty of treasonā€¦ You too may have doubted me but several Nations are beginning to believe so they are throwing out their Vote Counting Machines because they are afraid that what happened to Hilary may happen to them on their Election Day.

Furthermore, US Intelligent Services now claim to have solid proof that before and after Election, Trumpā€™s Team was in dialogue with Russia, making promises to work in their best interest rather than the interest of Americaā€¦ Although this should all be self-evident there is nothing wrong in doubting me provided you research the facts and assess the probability factors for yourselves.

Look, even the Super Powers now find themselves in confusion and would like to un-ring the Bell; unfortunately their solution is to lash out at the Weak, Poor and Less Fortunate as they try to cover up their own Mistakes by making more Mistakesā€¦ Even when they are caught and forced to say ā€˜Sorryā€™ it is much too late for too many Innocent Victims who have already suffered the pain.

We should all be wary of Leaders who tell us what happens in the outer World has nothing to do with us at home ā€“ They are wrong and we would do our Children grave injustice to hide Facts of the past while allowing lies of the present to mislead them back into bondageā€¦ Real Leaders would encourage us not to be silent or forget VIā€™s True History and the role played by each of us.

On the other hand, Bad Leaders would be right to be afraid and ashamed of the consequences of their actions ā€“Terrified that we may be able to trace our Pain andSuffering back to their blindness, greed and corruptionā€¦ This would explain their mad desire to silence anyone who may reveal how they essentially sold us ā€“ Maybe not in Human Form but in the blocked Rights and Opportunities.

Repeating Mistakes of the Past:

We still like to pretend we are Natures Little Secret or some unknown Countryā€¦ Not true - after all, Obama was here just recently and the present US Education Secretary of Education (who was temporarily blocked from visiting a School because she is remembered as having opposed Public Education) is from a Family that bought and totally controlled one of our most treasured Islands.

Very few of you would know I strongly debated against giving them Special Rights and Privileges at the expense of our own Children but LegCo Records will show how other Representatives voting against me in favour of themā€¦ Today she is part of a Trumpā€™s Government that is Anti-Education, Racist and inclined to block persons like my late Wife from entering a Country built by Slaves.

To cap this off, our own Leaders exhibit the same Back to Slavery Mentality and VI Parents still accept retardation of their Childrenā€¦ Our Leaders are still quicker to build Prisons than Schools and Playgrounds than Hospitals and still think the Poor were created to be fooled during Elections so Politicians can fatten themselves and screw us over for their rich Puppet Masters.

Instead of using existing Resources to help those in need, their efforts are focused on raising more Revenue to squanderā€¦ Thus, the more needy we become the more we are encouraged to find salvation by putting our Faith in Gods without understanding that Political Leaders have always designated themselves as Keepers of the Faith so we would be running to Oppressors for Rescue.

It should surprise no one when we witness a World Order conditioned to crucify others for the Sins of the Executioners so although there will be those in Courts, Politics and Religions who will stand against Injustice, we should realise that Evil remains contagiousā€¦ Subsequently we have already suffered a breakdown in Social Values where those we trust most are the ones to let us down.

In this way, the same Politicians making Laws against Child Molestation and Church Leaders sending us to Hell for Adultery and Officers of Law arresting us for Fornication are now being exposed as the most prolific Child Abusers and High Profile Sex Offenders ā€“ It is no longer just those we are taught to suspect but our most beloved Pastors, Politicians and Officers of Law.

Again, thankfully not everyone in these Groups are guilty ā€“ Some truly try to operate with Fairness and Justice but these are overshadowed by those addicted to Power and Moneyā€¦ These are the ones who do not care whether or not the Poor and Destitute can pay the Fines, Tithes or Taxes they impose and demand ā€“ All that matters is their authority to inflict pain and suffering.

Consequently, Courts are quick to tell us that Ignorance of the Law is no excuse for them to reduce their Charges; Religions will demand your 1st Fruit as their Payment in case you get fired and never receive another Paycheck and Politicians will imposed Fees, Fines, Work Permit hikes and Hidden Taxes even if it means killing the Goose that lays the Golden Eggs - or even themselves.

This lust for the Publicā€™s Money by those in Power is a serious affliction and just like all Addicts, the Source becomes unsustainable when successive Governments, Courts and Religions become obsessed with collecting more than those before or reaping more than they plantedā€¦ They regard our Silence as consent so the more silent we are the more they oppress and the quicker we die.

That is wrong and that is why I continue to identify and offer solutions to those matters in Education, Health, Labour and Immigration that appear destined to destroy our People and Territory if applied as proposedā€¦This is never easy and although the likelihood of state-sponsored victimisation is always present; this is not about you and I or making Friends ā€“ We must bring Truth to our Youth.

    Talking about struggles and trust, we need to discuss the DMV here in the BVI. This is an organization that needs to be looked into.
    The written test seems to be a little shady, confusing, and somewhat very frustrating to most natives here. As you can see, the study booklet is extremely too wordy and confusing.
    As most people have been trying to study this booklet and understand the proper rules and regulations of the roads here, tricky vocabulary wording, and continuously run-on-sentences are the major factors for this mess.
    And another thing to add to that also: 1- this is not even a written test, which would seem to be more lenient and fair to driving applicants here. 2- 60 timed questions in total. 3- whether an applicant passes or fails this test, they at least should be granted a printout of test in the end.
    Overall, HOW CAN ONE TELL OF THE COMPUTER HAS A GLITCH, and is INCORRECTLY MARKING THIS TEST? .When one asks these questions, the DMV employees answer people in such a snide nasty manner. This I hope Mr. C. Frett would someday mention in future writings. The fact that the DMV makes it difficult for natives to obtain a simple driver's licence here on our paradise, is shameful.

    I see what Afu is saying. Virgin Gorda is such a tiny island in paradise. The head of, and the employees of the DMV here in the BVI are a TRUE DEFINITION of BLACK LIVES DON'T MATTER - (etc.), IN THE BVI. Me and my 20yo. kids here have read this DMV booklet and see it for ourselves. Why are they making it so difficult for their own natives to obtain a simple driver's license here? Is this anothef form of genocide here?
