The media is the mouthpiece, polling point and extension of the White Supremacist’s mind control mechanism and power. It is the media that has created the image of and extolling the fact that Jamaica as the most homophobic place on earth.According to a recent article in NOW magazine, a decidedly homosexual friendly and uber liberal Toronto paper, “the international media has spilled much ink dissecting the question and coming down mostly on the yes side, blaming everything from dancehall reggae to the fact that criminalization of lesbian and gay sexuality gives license to violence.”
To their credit, the author and editor of NOW magazine explored the bigger picture with in the homosexual community and the general Canadian society at large, regarding the ethnic hatred against none –Europeans. According to one of the people he interviewed, local activist Angela Robertson, “While the colonial masters have had a political change of heart back in their own countries, there’s a responsibility on the former overseers of Caribbean states in terms of the lingering climate of hatred toward gays and lesbians.”
One of the causes that Anglo-Saxon uber liberals have taken on, has been the case of homosexual activist Gareth Henry, who recently applied for refugee status in Toronto after fleeing Jamaica out of fear, he says, for his life. It seems the homosexual radicals decided to make Gareth, the international grand marshal of this weekend’s Gay Pride parade. Political grand standing, I think so!
There is something about this attack on Jamaica that is disturbing to me and warrants a closer look. Why don’t the media point out those other Caribbean countries that have just as long and violent interactions with their respective homosexual communities? In fact NOW magazine had compiled more than half a dozen nations, all of them outside the Caribbean region, impose the death penalty for same-sex acts.
This list taken from the NOW magazine compilation includes:
This Islamic republic has the death penalty on file for cases of homosexuality. Death is by “public stoning.”
Homosexuality is still illegal and can land you in jail for 14 years. In the 12 northern states under sharia law, execution by stoning is practiced.
Iran puts gays to death. There are also harsh penalties for non-? Muslims who have gay sex with Muslims.
Sudan has a three-strike system for sodomy. First time, flogging (100 lashes) and five years in jail. Do it again, another 100 lashes and max five years. Third offence? Death (or life in jail).
United Arab Emirates
People were sent to jail for being openlygay last year. Some cross-dressers at a sporting celebration were also interrogated. None citizens living in the UAE with HIV were denied health care, quarantined and then deported.
Sharia law. Offenders may also be flogged. Last year, two men were sentenced to 7,000 lashes each for having sex with other men. Over the last few years, dozens of men have been arrested for “behaving like women.”
Under Yemen’s 1994 penal code, unmarried sodomy gets you 100 lashes and a year in jail. Married men? Death by stoning. Women participating in “sexual stimulation by rubbing” get up to three years in jail.
Sodomy can get you 10 years of hard labour Legislation doesn’t necessarily target gays, but charges of debauchery are laid when the raids happen. The government has also used emergency courts, typically used for terrorism or national security cases, to prosecute homosexuals.
Homosexuality isn’t illegal, but it’s not easy. In addition to societal stigma, intolerance has led to reports of limited health resource access, and some gay men report being denied employment because of their sexual orientation. Police indifference has caused many gay organizations to choose to stay out of the public eye.
Sodomy laws are used to punish the LGBT community. Members face discrimination across the whole society and will often face job loss and attacks upon being discovered as homosexuals
Anglo-Saxon hypocrisy runs rampant like lice in a barbershop. Europe has always been at the forefront of the homosexual lifestyle, promoting it as a natural way of living. Yet, some of the more anti-homosexual activities happen in the “West” (White) countries. As the University of Ontario Institute of Technology professor and author of – Buller Men And Batty Bwoys: Hidden Men In Toronto And Halifax Black Communities– posits that “moralgrandstanding and Western superiority complex aside, intolerance toward gays is by no means isolated to the islands. There are plenty of minority gay’s right here in the GTA living ghettoized lives ostracized from the mainstream”.
“Is what’s happening in Jamaica really any different than Canada before same-sex laws were passed?” says Wesley Crichlow, one of the people interviewed for the NOW article. “… But incidents of gay bashing happen all the time here where the perpetrators are not found, charges not laid and complaints not followed up by the local constabulary”.
However, later in the article a nugget of understanding was revealed, as the author mentioned that, “some suggest that the homophobia experienced by gays in Jamaica is not to be viewed in isolation, but as part of the elevated level of violence in the country, the murder capital of the world.”
MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD? What the Fu…hey now!
It seems to me that once again the Anglo-Saxon is still disturbed by the thoughts of uppity knee-grows acting and talking out of turn. As I detailed in an earlier postthe ourstory of Jamaica was forged in the pit of hate we call the African Ma’afa. It was instituted by two legged dogs, with satanic souls, who as par the course, cut and ran when we decided to seek our manifest destiny. Before they left, they created an environment of violence, laced with poverty and despair and barricaded under siege like fortification of the IMF and the World Bank gangsters.
How many of you have thought about the fact that the two Islands that are recipients of the Western governments worst dislike, is Haiti and Jamaica. What is the one common thread running through their stories? The spirit of resistance! Did you know that one of the most influential people in Haiti’s revolution was a fellow by the name of Bookman? A Jamaican? Legend states that it was Bookman who brought voodoo to Haiti and used it to inspire and embolden the oppressed peopleto rise up and kick some French ass. With the rallying cry of …you shoot us dead, we rise up again! The Haitian revolution shook the world and woke up millions of knee-grows in captivity.
While Haiti’s independence was forged through physical resistance, Jamaica’s was cultural. There is such a strong spirit of resistance in Jamaica that it continues to stump western imperialists. I remember as a child, how the knee-grows tried to teach the children to speak “proper” English in order to appease their masters. Today every damn somebody and their shopkeeper, is dropping something Jamaican in a conversation. Today the movement to make Jamaican an official language has grown wings and has become almost chiseled in stone.
Growing up at a time when it was painful to be a Rasta, where one was literally killed by the police for looking like one. Families ostracizing children, lack of employment, housing, respect and care extended to them. Today, not only is Rasta the in thing, but the dreds is so common you can’t even tell the real Rastas anymore. In my boyhood, you were more likely to hear fucking Lawrence Welk on the radio than a local artist. Now reggae music is the most popular and influential music out there. We even have Willie Nelson and Sinead O’Conner singing reggae.
(I pause here to gag at the imagery this brings up).
We have gospel reggae, country reggae, Japanese reggae, hip-hop and reggae, and the list goes on. So what’s my point at this point, you ask. It’s that the protest and cry for a boycott of the Jamaican tourist industry is more than about violence against homosexuals. It’s about White Supremacy seeking to maintain its control over other nations and by all means seeking to kill any form of independent attempt at sovereignty. Jamaica has three lucrative money making industries that stands out. Reggae Music, Tourism and unfortunately, drugs. The anti-Jamaica movement in the name of homophobia (what ever that means – fear of man?), seek to prevent the artists from making a living and the Jamaican economy to create any income from tourism. (Jamaica is still one of the most sought after destination for travelers)
But just like the old Ska song, Jamaica and Jamaicans will not be deterred. Trying to stop the violence against homosexuals by attacking the country’s economy will not sit well.
Yu pick him up, yu lick him down,
him jump right back,
what a hard man fi dead!
Right now poverty is keeping Haitians in check. And since the Duvaliers, a succession of despots help to keep the White Supremacists boots on the people’s neck. In Jamaica, the CIA has a long and entrenched his-story, supporting thuggary and depredation. All to make sure that America Inc’s backyard remain free of independence. And if all things fail, they are not above pulling another Grenada down in the Caribbean either
