First hand account of where we reach.
Charissa & I decide to order pizza from Pizza Boys Glencoe on the way home from errands after church.
Arrive at Pizza Boys at 10:45am on a Sunday morning, we enter The Food Mall at Highland Plaza and about 10 - 12 youths (18 - 25yrs) making noise with some of the staff. One time comments start to pass about my wife.
Ah man call me , 'Red Man, come leh meh talk to yuh'
So I just told him I just came to pick up and went in the line with Cherry in front of me.
So the guys continue making noise with the staff and a few of them fixated on Charissa. By now I realise they refer to Themselves as 'City of Gods' and some of them actually have it printed on their shirts.
As I step to the cashier I notice out the corner of my eye one of them try to touch Cherry ass.
So I grab his hand and step between them. I said to him , 'Bro, doh be on that'.
One time he watch me and start threatening me up in my face ............ asking me if I feel I bullet proof because I white, and telling me he could kill me right there and have Cherry if he want. So I just held his gaze and clenched my fists. Trust me if he touched her this email might not have come this morning.
He step away still talking and this time now 3 or 4 of them watching me waiting for a reaction.
So I tell Cherry we will leave soon as I think it safe. (this time I studying inside the place have cameras and I doh want them following us outside so we cyah leave just yet). The man start balling how he will 'F*** Charissa in her ass and buss her Shit Box after he shoot me'......... ......... ... hmmmm.
Anyway, after a few minutes of tension, a separate and unrelated altercation broke out between another gang member and a pizza boys staff member so once their attention was diverted I grabbed Charissa and we buss out briskly.
By the time we reach home I was quiet. Both of us were upset but it had not sunk in. I started to mount up a TV stand we have to make myself feel useful...... ...... hell of a helpless feeling to shake off.
But by this time my wife is crying inside. At least we had company coming over so no time to dwell on it.
But Charissa is really shaken up and scared. Trust me, there are fates worse than death if you're a woman.
Cyah explain to alyuh how this makes me feel. Just figured I would write because it is driving me insane and I guess some of us still in denial about the state of our beloved country.
When do you react? When is it worth it? In this day and age , who gonna jump in to help?
Alyuh ever see that movie , 'A Time to Kill' with Matthew MacConoughy & Sam Jackson ?????(ironically the night before we watched 'The Brave One')
Anyway, needed to get it off my chest.
Keep Cherry in your prayers because it may not be obvious but she is traumatized and it was two streets away from home so it is a little difficult to brush off!
Feet on ground...Heart in hand...Facing forward...Be Yourself...
The fact is Trinidad continues to live a lie and everyone refuses to call the fockin spade ah fockin spade while the PNM Government continues to protect "poor little nigga boys" aka community leaders.
The problem is that the African male underclass (niggas) is the problem.
They bave been brought up and programmed by the PNM to believe that we all owe them something. The reality is that laziness is the root of all evil.
In a country flowing with money and jobs these "poor little nigga boys" dont want to work but they want money and they want bling and the brand name shoes too.
By December its Christmas and its time to rob some fockin Coolies and kidnap and rape their daughters.
Then its Carnival and they need money again and so the cycle goes.
Trinidad is finished.
