Neo-Colonialism is defined by the Google Dictionary as “the use of economic, political, cultural, or other pressures to control or influence other countries, especially former dependencies”.

I have watched the movements of the LGBTQ community in this former British colony of Barbados and have observed their lack of originality. It appears to me that what they do and believe is imported from former colonial powers. The very notion of gayness and gay rights is not rooted in African and Caribbean culture. In fact, it is the Africans, their churches and their leaders who have been most opposed and vocal against the LGBT movement.

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour met some stout opposition when she tried neo-colonial strong-armed tactics on Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in an interview. Zimbabwe’s President Mnangagwa pushed back against CNN Richard Quest’s neo-colonialist dogma, when suggesting Zimbabwe should fall in line with the UN, the US, the EU and Australia among other LGBTQ-friendly powers, or else.

Uganda has made it clear that legally, they will not be neo-colonized by the LGBT and their band of colonial national and corporate backers. Paul Kagame in Rwanda has made it clear that LGBT rights are not a focus of his administration. Recall the same President Kenyatta told former President Obama where to get off.

Given that Africa has erroneously fallen prey to the Eurocentric, Christian manipulations of the colonials, you would have expected that they and their churches would have similarly fallen in line, like their counterparts in the UK, the US and Canada. Not so, but they have drawn the line, refusing to fly in the face of their sovereign creator for 30 pieces of silver, which they do need.

However, Barbadians from the Republic are marching up to UN House to host Barbados Pride launch. Why UN House? Why not at a Rastafarian, Muslim, Pan-African or a Church facility?

The reason is easy…the MONEY. This is where the funding comes from…straightforward neo-colonialism. We’re still slaves to the West, not shackled but educated and all, mental slaves as Bob Marley told us.

Recall the article on Barbados TODAY’s edition of Feb 26,

2023 titled “LGBT discrimination costing region billions”. This is another false statement, but money is king; forget about sovereignty, loyalty to God or Republic status. LGBTQ is yet another manipulative force of the colonials which we must have the common sense, not only spiritual sense, to see through. Bajans, we really have to stop taking a “6” for a “9” quietly and object. Say something. ]]>
