  2. Fire bun Herb Black,,, as rasta…….ridiculing the ordinary folks instead of crafting the kaiso to educate them about the subject ………both sides have these ordinary folks that cannot pronounce words properly or understand issues……That’s what the politicians love so that they can continue to fool the ordinary folks. As roots man,,,,,, you fell in the trap. You can never hear a kaiso like that from the likes of Black Stallion.
