    I think it’s high time the Police starts back enforcing routine random check for knives.
    Many say that they have a knife for “protection” but very often they are the aggressors…

    It’s been often said and just as often it’s been dismissed as racist ranting. But now I’m beginning to believe that there’s truth in it.

    Black men are a black man’s worst enemy. Even far more than the KKK ever was.

    We need to stop destroying ourselves. Those that want to see us fail just sit back and watch us do it to ourselves, without them ever lifting a finger.

    That is so ignorant.The destruction and bebasement of blacks by the KKK, can never equate to what is happening in St lucia,we have to look to some other source than that.There are so many issues which affect and threaten the behaviour of people especially black males.From mediocre socio-economic conditions,physcological shortcomings,depression,lack of reasoning skills etc the list goes on but.But this is not just prescriptive to ST.Lucia it is A global phenomenon.The KKK and other hate groups are only interested in total annhialation of non 100% Caucasian ethnicities,Most St Lucians are law abiding and get along for the most part.

    This is so not acceptable. Police need to take strict measures against it.
