Responding to Bernard Joseph’s blissful ignorance

Fri, Jan 13. 2012

Editor: I am at pains to find out what exactly is the point for publication of Mr Joseph’s longwinded submissions.

The first, as noted by PeeJohn, was nothing but a racist tirade.{{more}}

This is what PeeJohn said: “On recommendation from someone, I did read the article by Bernard Joseph and it is quite interesting reading. I am not necessarily one who attributes race or ethnicity to any decision (made) about any development in St. Vincent, but that seems to be the thrust of the article.”

Is that a road we want to take in this country at this stage of our development?

I made comments on Mr Joseph’s racist crap on my radio program, not in Searchlight.

Mr Joseph should have called there to make his response, which only demonstrates his rank stupidity.

Are you of the impression that Mr Joseph was the sole owner of First-Fm from his letter?

Here is this businessman who wants to direct the cocoa project who failed at his own purported business – much vaunted business acumen notwithstanding.

Where is First-Fm being heard?

Here is a man making comments on “a sweetheart agreement” – an agreement about which he is blissfully ignorant.

You may want to pay close attention to Mr Joseph’s use of the word “conspiracy”.

To join in secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end.

Some may want to call on Mr Joseph to prove that was the case.

I urge you not to use this media to promote any form of racism for divisive purposes coming from anyone – especially those who want to use skin colour as a mask for their inability to perform.
