  • Is Institutional Racism Invulnerable?

    Jamaica seems to have caught B.A.L.M. (Black American Lives Matter) fever. Jamaicans were all agog about the tragedy of George Floyd’s death and leapt enthusiastically onto American bandwagons proclaiming “Black Lives Matter” when, in reality, not one American protester gave a flying fig about countless Jamaicans with similar fates as...

  • Will Their True Worth Be Valued? Nah!

    I am bemused, as no doubt are the scientists who were taken by surprise by the coronavirus. For it seems clear now that they overreacted. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy they did, for had they not done so, the death rate would have exceeded the 390,000 it...
