Reiterating calls for the Virgin Islands (VI) to stop celebrating people who historically participated in the slave trade and other crimes against humanity, ZBVI 'Honestly Speaking' radio host, Mr Claude O. Skelton-Cline said until that happens the Territory cannot chart a new course forward.
"Have you noticed how some people rush to go and defend the Governor and rush to go and defend the Office of the Governor, the very symbol... and real manifestations to this current day that represents our enslavement and our colonial masters?" he questioned.
Skelton-Cline was speaking on the Thursday, July 16, 2020, edition of his radio show on ZBVI 780 AM when he said that the people of the Territory continue to participate in their own subjugation by being easily comforted and persuaded with 'nice words'.
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
