    The USA had destroyed all food tariffs and privatized practically all public facilities and services.
    Farmers became unable to make a penny on their crops or livestock, and were forced to cut down the few trees that protect the soil, for fuel.

    For years the poverty has been so sever that the folks would take mud, that's right the dirt right out the ground, mix it with cooking oil and a little sugar and spices and.........

    MAN THIS IS WHAK

    Now I can understand white supremacy , denigrating and driving already poor folks faces into the ground but what about our collective Black neglect and disconnect, from a Carribbean that refuses to unite, for the common good and our complacency here
