32

Arthur Williams has made a pledge to the protect the interest of Jamaicans living here in Antigua & Barbuda.

“It is a matter of some regret that for some time now we have not had a honorary consultant and I will like to give you the assurance that before the year is out we expect to be in a position to make a recommendation to you for the appointment of a honorary consultant.” he said.

He explains why this appointment is important, “ So many Jamaicans have made Antigua their home and for that reason in my role as high commissioner, I would have to pay special attention to the diaspora living here in this country”.

    • Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! ! “A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men and women (lacking intellectual rigor and given to sentimentality nurtured by the twitter universe) purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.” – Martin Luther King Jr!

      In this the International Decade for People of African Descent 2015 – 2014, one can sympathize with the ignorance that the intervention of white colonization, enslavement dislocation, black disorientation, decenteredness, and lack of agency has overpowered a people devoid of any thought of building a Caribbean Civilization! Brothers and Sisters why are you down with such Oppressive Hate! Are your responses natural occurrences in the relationships, attitudes toward the Caribbean environment, kinship patterns, preferences for colors, and historical referent points for people of African Descent!

      “We have to work at decolonizing our mentality and achieving happiness within the limits of sacrifice we should be willing to make. We have to recondition our people to accept themselves as they are, to not be ashamed of their real situation, to be satisfied with it, to glory in it, even.” – Capitaine Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, President Burkina Faso, Assassinated 1987!

      Lest We Remember: Four Days Ago we celebrated A Most Glorious and Historic Event! The Opening of the UWI’s newest campus, Antigua and Barbuda’s Five Islands Campus! Let’s be clear, it is not the University of Antigua and Barbuda! It is a Caribbean Institution began in Jamaica in a Multi-Campus Caribbean People – previously Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and now Antigua and Barbuda and the OECS – Environment!

      “An endless task, the cataloguing of reality. We accumulate facts, we discuss them, but with every line that is written, with every statement that is made, one has the feeling of incompleteness.” ― Frantz Fanon!

  1. He can protect their interest by taking them ALL OUT OF ANTIGUA….

    I SAID WHAT I SAID ……let the bleach faces dusty weaves ……comment all they want …

    • Well well…..smh! You guys are some sick twisted son of a bitches in here. Hating and discriminating against your own black Caribbean brothers and sisters, while others are silently taking over your country. Blind and stupid set a ppl. Hate jamaicans with all your passion but we are blessed by God above. So your words cant harm us. You fear and hate us because of your laziness and shortcomings. We go to any country in the world and make something out of nothing. We are a strong and proud people and we have alot to be proud of. So talk all u want….hate all u want but open your eyes and watch jamaicans excel in our endeavors. YOU CANT KILL OUR SPIRIT! …#ONELOVE

      • The Chinese and Syrians have invested in our country for years, also I am not a fan of them either so them can leave to. Other from the investment I am sure they’re responsible for some of guns and serious drugs that are on our streets.
        Out of all the Caribbean islands that have people migrated here the Jamaicans MOST of them are the worst. Full of evil rape, thief, murders, drugs lords, prostitution, etc. They brought no good to our country development but bringing it down to their ghetto gang style culture that they’re accustomed to back in Jamaica. The Spanish and Guyanese are second to them. I don’t hate anyone but I do hate their attitude and behavior. As Jesus said in His Word, He loves all man but He hates the sin within them.

      • How come you can go to any country in the world and make something yet can’t do it in Jamaica????? If you all so blessed why is Jamaica the most crime ridden poverty stricken refugee manufacturing country in the region.

        And we don’t hate our black brother and sisters is just that we don’t want the self hatred bleach skin culture to rub off on our children

        Yes you excel at prostitution and stripping in the clubs and self hatred skin bleaching , what else?

        • You are seriously misinformed and dunce! We excel in sports (Usain Bolt) . And have many other top form track and field athletes. You even send the boy Backa Baily to train in ja but sadly he’s not too good. Train with Bolt and still always under performing. We excel in music….so many great artists too numerous to mention. When they come hear u spend big bucks to see them perform. And so many other great accomplishments but i will leave it there for now. So do your research before u open ur big stinking mouth and try to dis my great country….Jamaica!

          • STFD and STFU with your false pride. If you all were really that proud you wouldn’t be here. Proud Jamaicans flee the country for the US and England or stay and fight. The desperate and weak ones end up in the small islands to hustle.
            A shame that with all the world renowned artists and sports persons you have , you still have to flee to a small island to make a living. What that say about you and your people. Antigua has jack shit , no artists, sportsmen women, no land , no natural resources like alumina and we still have to turn round and feed 10s of thousands of proud hungry ass Jamaicans
            You all shot Marley for ‘apparently’ wearing the wrong colour shirt and when he fled for his safety you accused him of turning his backs on you. Talk about killing the goose that lay the golden egg.
            “ It is better to live on the house top (Antigua) than in a house full of strife and confusion (Jamaica)” Bob Marley

            Antiguans are just better, and have done better with the little we have, and that is what’s eating you Jamaicans up, if we were not, you would not be here.

  2. He is going to protect the interests of all Jamaicans living in Antigua and Barbuda.How is going to protect the interests of all those who were born in Antigua and Barbuda.That is the question that should asked and be answered by our Leaders.

  3. Antiguan leaders don’t care about the Antiguans and Barbudans only when election time. They only care more about the Jamaicans, Guyanese, Spanish, Chinese, Syrian, etc… more that the native born Antiguans and Barbudans. A true leader in any country should always put their native nationals first.

    • Who ever u are ….u are so dunce and illiterate its painful to read your comments. i have a feeling u get a hard knuckle by a non national.lol…thats why your heart is so full of hate and contempt for them.

  4. if these co called antiguans did actually love their country…..only thing them good fah is to seh ah me born

    • Look at you all disrespecting the people who you or your parents made up their minds to live among. If Antiguans so bad gwaan back ah aryu yaad where the money has no value and crime and illiteracy are the order of the day. If Jamaica is all what Jamaicans say it is and love their country so much- GO BACK DEH!
      Things in your country hard why you ran away.

      • Tell the many students u have in Jamaica studying to come back to Antigua as well
        . When u have accomplish that then come and tell me about GO BACK HOME! I always hear the term “Small country…small mind”…now i understand exactly wat it means. U guys need to “emancipate yourselves from mental slavery” You are so full of hate that u hate even your own. Many times i hear Antiguans saying how they hate the people of Barbuda….smh. thats really sad. Ignorant and badmind!

        • Antiguan students studying in Jamaica are getting their degrees and PAYING their tuition unlike the broke pocket Jamaican students who are beggy, beggy and always getting de- registered. People studying in a country is not the same as people moving to a country to add to its crime rate, prostitute and nasty up the country. If we are so small- minded and badminded… why do you insist on living among us???!!! It just goes to say Antigua is still paradise to you lowly hoodlums. The EC money sweet yuh so?

        • It is important for Antigua to modify it’s immigration laws ASAP to kick out illegal immigrants. Our country is being flooded with too many immigrants, they are taking away the jobs from Antiguans. Also, these immigrants are committing crimes. Let’s join together and encourage our government to do the right thing.

  5. Chet Green say that he want the man to help develop the reggae music industry here in Antigua, but the man mission is to protect the interest of Jamaicans living in Antigua. In other words keep the outflow of capital from Antigua through remittances flowing.
    Now if Jamaica can’t develop and monetize reggae in Jamaica how they going to do it in Antigua.
    And if we don’t have a sustainable soca or calypso industry here in Antigua how we go take on reggae music.
    And why would the Jamaican ambassador help Antigua compete against its reggae industry and artists? Who else in the world would be crazy to help the competition???
    Wha kinda dunceniss dis me a hear ya?

      Lest We Remember: Four Days Ago we celebrated A Most Glorious and Historic Event! The Opening of the University of the West Indies newest campus, Antigua and Barbuda’s Five Islands Campus! It is established to provide a development platform for Antigua and Barbuda, will function as a hub for the OECS and serve to expand UWI’s regional capacity in the delivery of higher education for the 21st century! Let’s be clear, it is not the University of Antigua and Barbuda! It is a Caribbean Institution began in Jamaica in a Multi-Campus Caribbean – previously Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and now Antigua and Barbuda and the OECS – Environment!

      “From (Antiguan) chauvinism to (Barbudan) tribalism, there is but one small step. And consequently, wherever the petty-mindedness of the national bourgeoisie and the haziness of its ideological positions have been incapable of enlightening the people as a whole or have been unable to put the people first, wherever this national bourgeoisie has proven to be incapable of expanding its vision of the world, there is a return to tribalism, and we watch with a raging heart as ethnic tensions triumph. Since the only slogan of the bourgeoisie is “Replace the foreigners,” and they rush into every sector to take the law into their own hands and fill the vacancies, the petty traders such as taxi drivers, cake sellers, and shoe shiners follow suit and call for the expulsion of the (Dominicans, Guyanese, Haitians, Jamaicans, Kittitians, Montserratians, Nevisians) or, taking tribalism to a new level, demand that the Fulani and (Akan, Coromantee, Ibo and Congolese) go back to their bush or back up their (Sherkerley) mountains (or hurl themselves off Devils’ Bridge or the Magnificent Pillars of Hercules).” ― Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth!

      • @ JFII
        You can talk all you want. You live in CANADA where it is illegal to set up pallets on the streets and sidewalks and squatters are non existent in the cities so you have the luxury of being philosophical.

        When you return to Antigua and live among the filth, crime and prostitution that has taken over the city then we will give ears to your lectures.

        Who feels it knows it.

It will give you that rare sense of nobility that can only spring from love and selflessly helping your fellow man… You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr!

          Would Pictures of Cities of the Developed World, from London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto to Montreal, showing their citizens sleeping in cardboard boxes on sidewalks at the dead of winter, help your Understanding of the Human Condition! Naw!

          “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. … Men at some time are masters of their fates; the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings.” – Shakespeare!

          “A genuine revolution of values means in the final analysis that our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies.” – MLK!

          • You’ve lost the plot man!!
            Are you seriously equating homeless and most times mentally ill people with those hustling to make a dollar.
            Come on now.

  6. Yet the xenophobia bloggers are the same ones want to be critical of Trump’s actions and at the same time don’t want Jamaicans in Antigua.
