Blacks, Bleaching and the Willie Lynch Letter – By Yvonne Sam

Blacks, Bleaching and the Willie Lynch Letter

Yvonne Sam

Black is Beautiful but Bleaching does not guarantee Reaching.

On April 11, 2017 detectives assigned to the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Branch (C-TOC) in Jamaica, seized 78,000 tubes/jars of assorted bleaching creams, and in relation to the find charged the vendor with Breaches of the Pharmacy Act, Food and Drug Act and Customs Act. Skin lightening trends or skin bleaching has continued to be practiced in Jamaica despite governmental crack-down measures.

Individuals especially females with lighter skin are thought to be favoured by the elite, leaving many to seek lightening treatments when looking for employment.  It is also associated with privilege.    Continue reading

Guyana – MY HEART GRIEVES FOR THEE – By Yvonne Sam

My heart grieves for the trend of authoritarianism that is once again raising its head in Guyana?

My heart grieves at the way we continue to overlook and ignore certain issues in our   community, such as mental illness, incest and abuse, which negatively impact so many.   Continue reading

In the midst of the daily complaints in the media about this problem and that, it’s a relief to sometimes see the bright spots. In this past week for example, my daughter in Canada sent me a wonderful story about a group of fire-fighters from South Africa (see video below), who showed up as volunteers to help with the horrendous bush fires that had hit Alberta destroying hundreds of homes.

The Canadian firemen were exhausted after almost a month fighting the raging fires every day; the 281 South African firefighters arrived in Edmonton, Alberta, about a week ago to help battle the massive fires spreading across the province – and their first reaction was to immediately burst proudly into song and dance. One of them told reporters that one of the reasons they came was a consequence of Canadian support for South Africa in its apartheid battle some years ago. “This is payback time,” he said.  Continue reading
