Perhaps people realise the jig is up and there was never really true emancipation, just a substitution of one group of "massas" for another...:|

Anyways, Happy Emancipation everyone. For what it's worth Bob Marley got it right...what a pity very few have heeded his words:

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds." -- Bob Marley, "Redemption Song"

PM: ‘Slavery has left many a black person scarred’
Keino Swamber

THE Prime Minister says part of the long-term effects of the slave trade and slavery on its descendants include the struggle of a people, trying since 1838 when slavery was abolished, “to establish personhood and dignity in a world, in which racism has been deeply institutionalised.

In his Emancipation Day 2019 message to the nation, Dr Rowley said: “Slavery has left many a black person scarred and denuded of basic values. In the eyes of some, the perception remains that blacks have been placed at the bottom of every ‘good’ list, and the top of every ‘bad’ one. Despite, their strengths, resourcefulness and intelligence, they are forced, still, to cry out to the world that ‘black is beautiful, too.’”

He said, as we celebrate Emancipation Day as a national holiday, it is important to note that we in TT are unique in that we have been commemorating the abolition of slavery in the former British West Indies since August 1, 1985.

“We have long recognised slavery as the sad, dark, side of human existence, in that almost every people, every race across the world has had this wretched experience, but we from West Africa have suffered the worst.

“Historians continue to document these cruel exploitations, in human societies, from century-old events in the Arab world to the evolution of democracy in ancient Greece, developments which helped to shape modern Western civilisation of which we are a part.”

Rowley said, recent studies in social psychology now suggest that the scars and oppression of slavery are lodged generations after in their collective unconscious – in the minds of Africans in the Caribbean and the Americas.

“In short, theirs, as we say, is a double whammy: institutionalised racism on one hand; and the mental chains of pain and suffering held within their own psyches.

“But this is the 21st century. A tectonic shift is taking place; there is a new ‘scramble for Africa.’ The world’s superpowers are turning attention to Africa, again, as the new economic frontier. The UN predicts that by 2025 there will be more Africans than Chinese people in the world, as African economies are among the fastest growing in the world.”

He said what this means for the African person in TT is a question that every one of this race must ask. He urged citizens to acknowledge the past and continue to research the rich, historical ancestry of African civilisations – “the legacy from whence we came.

“We must continue to remember how we came here and what we are engaged in building here, a new society based on equality and harmony in our colourful and vibrant democracy. Remember the struggles of the fore parents on and off the plantations to the birth and growth of this nation.

“Then let us find ways to unlock and emancipate ourselves from the mental chains, and, finally, embrace the opportunities of the 21st century – with an understanding that TT will only achieve the future which we all, as citizens, create for our generations to come.”

Calling out the hypocrites...

Gay pride, Christian shame, mental emancipation
BC Pires

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY

YOU COULD spot the two Pentecostal preachers at the Gay Pride celebration in Port of Spain’s Mandela Park on Sunday easily: they were the only unhappy people in the place. Scowling, holding their placards filled with biblically-justified hatred in front of them like shields, their eyebrows were as knotted as their insides, their stomachs turned sick by what they were seeing…which was the happiest people in Port of Spain.

How could these miserable holy firetruckers miss this joy, I wondered. And how could anyone else, looking from the one to the other, choose the believers’ rigid anger and hate over the fluid joy – some of them almost too fluid, like Diamond, who effortlessly lifted his leg up past his ear and then dropped to a full split in the middle of the road, to the delight of everyone but the snarling preachers.

How could anyone choose the hate of these certain men of God over the love of the so-called sinners? If you had to choose, wouldn’t you prefer to go to a drag queen show than church, to mas than to Mass? (At least the show changes week-to-week at nightclubs.)

You only had to look away from the lesbian American with what may be the world’s most wickedly-infectious smile, who married a Trini woman and moved here, and who explains that the essential oils on sale in their stall are better than regular ones because they’re made by gay people, to the growling, frothing-at-the-mouth Pentecostals to see where love truly resides. My friend K (not her real initial) pointed with her mouth to the preachers. “They should just cover them in pink glitter,” she said.

The opposite of love is not hatred, but indifference. Men who rail against homosexuality must have a problem with it that requires some sort of inner struggle to reconcile, or they really wouldn’t care who slept with whom, no matter what Leviticus says.

You never see anyone plucking shrimp off other people’s plates and, except in Trump’s America, no one tells a white person she shouldn’t marry a black one, or climbs over a sports ground wall to wag his finger in the face of a cricketer and tell him he really should play football. To care about someone else’s sex life is, well, to care about it; it’s incomprehensible that they can’t leave it alone…unless their own interest has been pricked. As a gay friend says, “Darling, it’s better to be blatant than latent!”

In a week that began with pride – remember, the word is really Sabbath-day, ie, Saturday – and ended with emancipation, it was genuinely difficult to listen to two black men, who would not be at Mandela Park at all but for African slavery in the New World, as they clung wretchedly to the same Bible that deprived their ancestors of their liberty for 400 years, to attempt to deny the humanity of people just like them! (The most literal interpretation – which Pentecostals love – of the commandment Jesus Christ supposedly himself declared to be above all others, “Love they neighbour as thyself,” would seem to be an argument in favour of, not against, same-gender love.)

It’s hard, every agnostic knows, not to be sympathetic to believers, especially to believers who have endured great suffering. When you fall from faith (and rise above Catholic guilt, Judaic shame, Muslim self-abnegation), you’re left with the bleakest of blank slates: life has no meaning whatever, except the one you can create; anyone who understands that must empathise with those who prefer to hold on to a grand illusion or delusion.

But every agnostic also knows that the only one who can save you is yourself.

What stops black men, in emancipation week, from seeing other human beings who are free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, free at last?

By definition, believers live in a fantasy world; and one of the most enduring Christian fantasies I’ve heard fall from the lips of the devout is how lucky they would have been to have lived at the time that Jesus walked the Earth. I’ve heard several people declare how fervently they would have worshipped him, if only they’d been there!

But the believers of today would not have welcomed, back then, something new, like, “Love thy neighbour” or “Gay Pride;” they would have been with the religion of the day, the Pharisees.

They would not have loved Jesus.

They would have crucified him.

With God-fearing pride.
