To 'diss' the media brings slavery to mind

Dear Editor,

When we sing, "Justice, truth be ours forever", we must think about the meaning. At the end of a muted Black History Month, Prince Harry will visit Jamaica. On page one of your March 2 publication, you carried the headline, "Local press 'dissed' ", which informed of preference given to the foreign press regarding Prince Harry's visit.

Is there a fear of the local press for this visit? We hear about who will pay for the visit of the prince. If there is any talk about payment, what's the money for? If "justice, truth be ours forever", then those words must give to us some sense of meaning.

Banning the press reminds me of slavery which was one of the greatest crimes against humanity. What is the definition of crime? The majority of people in the country, the black people are here because of this great crime. In spite of the words of the National Anthem, we prefer to live with the lie.

The Jewish people have taken problems to the International Court and won cases from the 15th century. Everyone must pay for their crime. Who will pay for the greatest crime against humanity? We cooperated with the USA and delivered Dudus. We must now work to take those responsible for the greatest crime to the International Court. Those who never pay for their crimes will repeat them some other time.

Do you believe Dr Peter Phillips will be a better People's National Party (PNP) president than Portia Simpson Miller?
