Pros and cons to Bizzy claim


Share post:

IN YESTERDAY’S WEEKEND NATION prominent businessman Ralph “Bizzy” Williams said he felt slighted and crushed by a video shown at Wednesday’s 50th anniversary Independence launch.

He was peeved at what he saw as an absence of the contribution of white Barbadians to the country’s growth and stability before and since Independence.

The story has been a talking point on the airwaves and social media. Here are a few comments from our online readers:

Wayne Webster: Bizzy has a point, even though we know what was meant.

Olutoye Walrond: He’s making a valid point, I think.

Daniela Gomez: When will these people get it in their heads that Blacks are the majority on the island . . .

Tony Excell: I don’t understand what the problem is. Barbados is primarily a black country, surely that is something worthy of celebration.
