EDITOR, The Tribune
I write to you with reference to an article that I saw in The Nassau Guardian, written by one Mr William Wong on July 24, 2020, headed: It Ain’t Right.
Dear Mr Wong, I write to you without prejudice, but I totally disagree with you in your statement that the vendors at Arawak Cay and under the bridge were forced to close for a second time, and you see a very different road ahead for these ordinary Bahamians to make an honest living when other restaurants can continue by operating via drive-through and have curb-side service.
Where on Arawak Cay and under the bridge can you have drive-through and curb-side? You stated that with the help of the police at Arawak Cay they can enforce the protocol of wearing masks and keeping six feet apart. Only some places you see Bahamians doing that! I desire to differ with you, because Bahamian people refuse to obey the law, even with the police presence.
Some of them are not going to wear masks, or stay six feet apart. Bahamians just do not respect authority. Just look and see what happened in Grand Bahama. Bahamians do not follow rules.
This is my first time writing to you. I would appreciate it if you would publish this in your paper for me.
I also have another question for my Bahamian people.
BLACK LIFE MATTERS
For the white or the black? Does it only matter when a white man kneels on a black man’s neck and kills him? But it does not matter when a black man kills a small child or children in the arms of their mother, or kills other black men every day of the week?
