  1. these people are born to commit crime …..and if you do a check most of the criminals that they say is antiguans their parents are jamaicans, they are first generations antiguans. not all of these people are involved in stuff like this but majority are…….and the thing is most jamaicans take this shit for joke that when anything happen they use sarcasm to try and ask is he Jamaican most of them love ugly. …that is y i love Barbados. …..we are all one but make your self useful. …..y we need someone coming from Jamaica to sell cd

    • You need to read first before you talk. R u Antiguans don’t like to read the people say they came true the vcbird international airport. They did not say there from Antigua. Jamaican them say

    • No-one is born to commit crime… there’s several factors why People commit crime , however, born to commit crime is ridiculous!

    • Stop talking talking nonsense. aren’t you the guys smoking this nonsense weed? Do you really think that there are differences between us Negroes who were shipped to this side of earth?

      Am I happy with the behavior of some of our people? No. However don’t dig your head in the sand thinking you are of a superior lot. You guys have more weed smokers per capita than even Jamaica. Grow your own stuff.
