Dear Met,Metters and Peepers,
I think it’s full time we take our heads out the sand by recognizing the biggest crisis affecting Jamaica today. It’s not crime,high unemployment, inflation nor is it bleaching. Let’s look at the elephant in the our Jamaican home of fine china and figurines. I will give examples proving lack of proper Parenting is the#1 problem in Jamaica.
#1…I visited a popular Jamaican ghetto and chilling with drinks chatting up the barmaid. My back was turned but I did hear a very effeminate voice beg excuse and asking if you have cold Irish moss.Upon turning around there were 2 GUYS both kimbo ,one with hands on hip,the other with hands on bottom. I looked at the barmaid and the look in her eyes gave me the confidence to say “noooo we nuh sell it”
They pointed to Irish moss on the shelves and the barmaid countered “them nuh cold!”
Upon them leaving she told me they were cousins as their single mothers were sisters.About 10mins later this flaming raging shemale came in tapping his feet with arms folded in vextation.He demanded he be sold the hot Irish moss because they bought Ice!Met I was shocked to hear he was the brother of the girl voice guy prior.How does two women raise 3 young men 20s who all turned out gay in the heart of Jamaica’s top tier ghetto?Lack of a father figure and women without parenting skills that’s how!
#2 …I witnessed two brothers in a fight, luckily they were parted before the younger one chopped the older one with the cutlass. The mother comes on the scene and I would greatly appreciate if any of the bloggers can explain what manner of mother is this. The mother proceeded to trace,no one in particular but she was saying that the big son must go rise his gun for the little son.She expressed a preference that it’s better the little son dead because he “doesn’t have anything a live for nor can he mind her”.
#3….The little baby girl was no more than 3yo maybe 4.I stood smiling at the corner shop as she ran up to her mother and I thought what a angel. She opened her mouth and what came out made me instantly stop smiling.
“Daddy sey to tell yuh him nuh have no b@#$bo $#@cl $/#@aat $20000 ?
The mother smiled at me and picked up the little angel then she looked up the road 100yards and I saw she was looking at a man. She started to cuss badwords but the man fanned her off aggressively.
“You can hold mi baby?me a go up there fi the school fee from the duttyy bwoi”
What kind of behavior and type of messages is this for a baby girl to partake in?
So you see Met the lack of proper parenting skills impact all sections of our society. It leads to the self esteem issues that manifest itself in bleaching. It leads to the systematic thinking that breeds crime because we value those who can give us things with scant regards to how they are acquired. Morals are compromise be it through gay means or criminal means to keep our loved ones staying Gucci down to the socks!!
I weep for my country.
