      for that comment you will get a lot of back lash , how ever from me i can say the same but the only way i can say i hate them is the way that they pave ways for each other , i wish we were like that, they are very friendly people i wish we lucians were like that, they cook real good , i’m getting fat, they’re very good doctors , i’m jealous that they don’t let me feel pain longer. so yes i agree with you i to hate Guyanese, they’re just too good of a set of hard working fun to be with , like to laugh , they’re too damn supportive of their friends and family . i wish they would go home after they teach us how to love and care for each other and not be crabs in a barrel

      Gasson, you eh even know your own history. Many Guyanese in St. Lucia have St. Lucian roots. Some of them are the descendants of St. Lucians who went looking for gold in the late 1950s and 1960s. Do me a favor? Hide your keyboard. Kooyoh.

      Seriously I thought with the worldwide Web and social media people would be more educated. Reading some of the hateful comments from some of you guys don’t represent some of the St Lucian I know. I’m Guyanese and proud citizens of St Lucia. . These hateful rhetoric told me that we have alot of work to do guys y’all could do better this is 2017

    Sad-But-True, you are the Evil One (lol) . Your soul has to be overly dark as you have a monumental appetite to see people humiliated and emasculated with attacks on their character and nationality. You behave like an offspring of Satan. I’m sure you are not but your behavior is reprehensible. Try to avoid painful ridicule. Use your energy and intelligence to make positive changes in your community. To hate someone because of their race, ethnicity or where they were born, which they have no control over, is the pinnacle of stupidity. Amend your ways!

    I wish we would see pass Gender , Race and religious beliefs. Just be human beings. Why focus on the Nationality of the individual?

    Why not ask what was so intense with the dog argument that warrant that behavior.

    A story is posted here but the majority of the comments are “commenting” on Sad But True?! St Lucians can you all start ignoring this guy/girl and start making meaningful contributions.

    As I said in the past ignore this person and they will eventually fade into “Nothingness”.

    Make sense much?!

    I DISAGREE HE COMMENTS SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED. WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF SHEMP. IT’S NOW FOR ST. LUCIA NEWS ONLINE TO STOP PUBLISHING HIS NONSENSE. LET’S ALL RALLY BECAUSE IT COULD BE DONE
    SAD BUT THE TRUTH IS WITH THE MANY KILLINGS/SHOOTING/STABBING, EVEN RECKLESS DRIVING ON OUR ROADS ARE NOT DONE BY THE LIKES OF CHASTANET, THE SYRIANS, COCASSIANS, EVEN THE INDIAN COMMUNITY. IT’S US BLACK PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO GET ALONG AND LIVE TOGETHER AS A SOCIETY. IF HE WANTS TO SEND A SELECT FEW BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY I HOPE HE WAS NOT ONE OF THOSE WHO IS UPSET WITH DONALD TRUMP WHEN HE SPEAKS ABOUT MASS DEPORTATION.
    IF HE KNEW ABOUT HIS COUNTRY WELL HE WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT ST. LUCIANS WERE THE ONES WHO MIGRATED TO GUYANA FIRST. MANY IF THE GUYANESE WE SEE HERE ARE OFFSPRINGS OF OUR GENERATION. FINALLY SAD BUT TRUE, YOU HAVE ALMOST FIVE YEARS OF YOUR ANGER. HOPE IT LAST A LIFETIME FOR YOUR SAKE. BY THEN YOU WOULD HAVE GONE LOCO.

        You would know is low self esteem, since it is something you probably refuse to acknowledge about yourself.

        Bet you get your thrills and high whenever you mention Chastanet’s name.
        You live for posting comments and reading each and every response.
        Pretty much sounds like a someone with psychotic tendencies.

        WAIT. WAIT, WAIT. you are going to respond to my comment with a pathetic response that you think stings. AWWWWWWWWW somebody craves attention.

        Now go on and respond like you always have.
        Come on now, don’t disappoint.

    This is a brazen act. The fact that someone can brandish a firearm, actually use it in the middle of the day without any regard to others. The state of lawlessness has increase and continues to increase. We have no respect for life and more so ourselves. What are we teaching our children? That it ok to resolve conflict using weapons? This is frightening and MUST be addressed at all levels.

    Crime is not near to a halt in St Lucia. Reading through the comments and what has me is that no one is commenting about what actions should be taken against the sore loser who think it is right to pull out a firearm and discharge it on Jeremie Street which is always busy,so many innocent people around that could have hit anyone instead the comments are about hating Guyanese and the dog. No one is focusing on the real problem so in conclusion I will say that majority is contributing to this crime situation and breeding criminals. Kuddos Lucians!!!

    >.> And sad-but-true gets all the attention. Its amazing how one person with a negative comment can distract an entire forum and really bring out emotions. It says a-lot about people nowadays, instead of trudging on they stop to confront every trivial distraction. No wonder we get nowhere.
