  1. My sympathy goes out to the family of the decease and to the drag racing fraternity… Drag racing is a lovely sport… Its a sport that’s is getting bigger and better and its attracting a cross section of the public at large…. I cant recall of hearing of any fatal accident in the past but one death of such nature is too much in the sport….. Perhaps the authorities may now have to begin to think about putting something in place to avoid such thing from happening in the future….

  2. No one can avoid death, when it is your time its just your time…..

    whether in a car, airplane, walking across the street, freak accident, when its your time its just your time.

    No one can cheat death either, it’s just not your time.

    Life goes on you live you learn, many person died for the many freedoms we enjoy today.

    12,000 died building the Panama Canal, seven died building the stadia in Brazil for Olympics.

    R.I.P. condolences to the family and friends.

      Oh Gad! A Man Died! Have Mercy Pon Us!

      “The value of etymology, that is, the origin of terms and words is in the proper identification and location of concepts. The Afrocentrist seeks to demonstrate clarity by exposing dislocations, disorientations, and decenterness. One of the simplest ways of accessing textual clarity is through etymology.” – Dr. Molefi Asante, Afrocentricity: The Theory of Social Change!

      186 Years of Emancipation! 69 Years of Adult Suffrage! 53 Years of Statehood In Association! 39 Years of Independence! 6 Years of the Gaston Browne Administration!In this the International Decade For People of African Descent 2015 – 2024, one of our greatest everyday threat to our safety comes from the use of motor vehicles, not only is it’s use our lifeblood for our livelihood endeavors but more so our pleasurable delights be they at high speeds or parked on a moonlit road feeling the gentle breezes from the Trades Winds and or hearing the lapping of waves from the Atlantic or Caribbean Seas as we enjoy nocturnal frivolities! The pounding heartbeats of the resulting divertissements is how to continue to enjoy
      the benefits that the motor vehicle can bring, whilst massively reducing the currently disproportionate rate of death and disabling injury that it brings with it!

      Given the socio-cultural and behavioural attitides prevalent and exhibited daily without let or hindrance, it is safe to say that the greatest challenge is to overcome the scandal of ignorance of current levels of death and injury – tolerance by some decision makers, Drag Racing Association Leaders and professionals who should enact Regulations, Polices, Procedures and act to reduce it, tolerance by the media, other “supercilious sophisticates” and opinion commentators who could open hearts and minds to decisive action, from whom relatively little is asked but to abandon the relishing psychic culture of spookism, confusion, and superstition!

      “Myths tie all relationships together, whether personal or conceptual. It is the Afrocentrist’s task to determine to what extent the myths of society are represented as being central to or marginal to society. This means that any textual analysis must involve the concrete realities of lived experiences, thus making historical experiences a key element in analytica Afrocentricity. In examining attitude, direction, and language the Afrocentrist is seeking to uncover the imagination of the author. What one seeks to do is to create an opportunity for the writer to show where he or she stands in relationship to the subject. Is the writer centered or is the writer marginalized within his own story?” – Dr. Molefi Asante!
