since the valerie amos discovery, i’ve done some more research and there are some real negroe despicables running about england
these four all oppose reparations for what was done to African people
valerie amos, dawn butler, david lammy and sir bill morris led the british charge against reparations in durban south africa circa 2001
on the american side two negroes represented the george bush admin: colin powel and condeleesa rice
amos was born in guyana while lammy parents from guyana
morris was born in jamaica and butler parents jamaican
But as we look forward to next year what is important to me is that we have a bicentenary in which all groups can engage.
And that we can do that, commemorate the ordinary people who campaigned but also remember the many million of slaves that were shipped, that were moved and the many that died in that awful, awful trade.
It is true to say that we have not been great in this country at exploring and understanding this period of our history.
Tony Blair has gone further than any other leader of any western democracy in his statement but he has struck the right balance between providing for the future, commemorating the past and moving forward as a multi-ethnic nation.
I think the business of compensating is not particularly productive. I don’t want to get us into a blame fest.
What I want is celebration, commemoration. I want dialogue, I want progress.
gotta rake these negroes in tiny doses
