YES! NEWS REPORTING IN MAIN STREAM MEDIA- ONLINE OR OFF LINE-HAS CAUSED DISTRUST AMONG THE POPULUS. NOW THE PEOPLE, IN THIS TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY- CAN RECORD THEIR OWN NEWS, AND EVEN BECOME ACTORS IN ITS REPORTING. THIS IS VERY LIBERATING TO SOME, WHILE SOME SPREAD HATRED, AND PREJUDICE IN SOCIAL MEDIA USING INFLAMMATORY RHETORIC. NOW: WHERE DO WE FIND – THE TRUTH? I WILL CHALLENGE ANY MEDIA TO CONTEST MY REVELATION OF TRUTHS. I WILL NOT BECOME A PART OF THOSE WHO SPREAD MALICE AND HATRED. I ASK THE WORLD TO READ MY WORKS. NO ONE OR ENTITY HAS EVER HAD REASONS NOT TO RELY ON WHAT I SAY OR WRITE. I AM NOT A JOURNALIST. READ BELOW-BOLT GAVE HIS SHOW.

EXCERPT (c)  “THE TRUTH WILL SWIM LIKE OIL”. THAT’S WHAT MY LATE GREAT PROPHETIC MOTHER SAID.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, AND WITH TRUTH.

I AM NOT SURPRISED TO HEAR SOME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE BIASED AND SKEWED REPORTING IN MAIN STREAM, AND THEIR AFFILIATED NEWS MEDIA TODAY.

I AM AWARE THAT THOSE WHO PUBLISH ONLINE AND HAVE THE PRESSURES FORCED ON THEM TO CONTROL WHATEVER IS POSTED ON THEIR SITES, FIND THIS POLICING FRUSTRATING.

THE RUDE AND HATEFUL COMMENTS I HAVE SEEN ONLINE IS A REASON FOR THIS ENFORCEMENT, AND CAUSE FOR RESENTMENT.

I WILL SAY THIS, A MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE JOURNALISTS, WRITERS, REPORTERS, NEWS GATHERERS IN AMERICA DO NOT HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING, COMMAND, AND CONTROL OF THE SO-CALLED -ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

AMERICAN ENGLISH, IS NOT THE BRITISH TYPE OF ENGLISH  GRAMMAR OR SYNTAX.

AMERICA HAS CHOSEN TO INVENT ITS OWN FORM OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR WITH TWIST AND TURNS IN MANY OF THE KNOWN BRITISH WORDS AND PHRASES.

LET ME SHARE A LITTLE KNOWN SECRET ABOUT- COMING TO AMERICA FROM A COUNTRY WHICH SPEAKS THE SO-CALLED QUEENS ENGLISH.

AMERICA HAS THIS-TOEFL( TEST OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE) REQUIREMENT FOR ANYONE LIKE MYSELF WANTING TO COME TO AMERICA.

NOW, AS A JAMAICAN WE ARE NEGATIVELY STIGMATIZED AS SPEAKING WHAT THEY CALL- PATIOS- i.e. A BROKEN FORM OF ENGLISH.

WE AS JAMAICANS DO NOT SPEAK ANY BROKEN ENGLISH, AS THE COLONIAL SYSTEM WOULD WANT THE REST OF THE WORLD TO KEEP THINKING AND NEGATIVELY STIGMATIZING US.

SO, I WILL ASK- AMERICA, CANADA, THE UK WHAT KIND OF ENGLISH DO THEY SPEAK?

THESE ARE THE NEGATIVELY STEREOTYPICAL WAYS IN WHICH OTHERS HAVE CREATED- SELF OTHER BIASES, AND HAVE PLACED ON US.

NOW WATCH THIS TRUTH- WE ARE TRAINED IN SCHOOLS IN JAMAICA, AND HAVE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE HAMMERED INTO OUR HEADS FROM WE FIRST ENTERED KINDERGARTEN.

WE CAN TEACH AMERICANS TO REALLY SPEAK AND TO UNDERSTAND THE QUEENS ENGLISH, AND MANY OF US HAS HELPED THEM.

WE OFTEN LAUGH AT THIS AFFRONT, DUE TO LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ON AMERICA, TO SEE AND TO KNOW THAT WE ARE VERY ABLE AND PROFICIENT IN THE SPEAKING AND WRITING OF THE QUEENS ENGLISH, WHICH, REALLY, IS NOT WHAT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN SPEAK AND WRITE.

THOSE IN MEDIA LAND AND SITCOMS WHO TRY TO MAKE FUN OF THE WAY JAMAICANS SPEAK WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW HOW WE CAN SWITCH FROM PATOIS AND FLUENT ENGLISH WITHOUT A HITCH, AND NO!- WE DID NOT LEARN IT FROM ROSETTA STONE!

SINCE ARRIVING IN THIS COUNTRY, LEGALLY, YEARS AGO, I AM ALSO ONE WHO  HAS HELPED MANY AMERICANS TO SPEAK, WRITE, AND UNDERSTAND ENGLISH .

YOU WOULD BE AMAZED TO FIND HOW MANY IN PROMINENT POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY AND FACULTY POSITIONS ARE NOT ABLE TO CONSTRUCT SIMPLE SENTENCES EVEN IN THE WRITING OF OFFICE EMAILS AND MEMORANDUMS.

WHEN WE , AS JAMAICANS TRY TO SHOW THE WORLD OUR “-ROOTICAL SIDE”- AMERICA AND THE WORLD SHOULD NO LONGER BE SURPRISED.

WELL, FOR THOSE WHO NEVER HEARD OF THIS TERM- I WILL TELL YOU THAT IT MEANS- OUR AFRICAN CULTURAL SIDE FROM WHICH, WHAT THE BRITISH COLONIAL SLAVE-MASTERS CALL- PATOIS- CAME. DO YOU GET MY DRIFT?

JAMAICANS WILL SHOW THE WORLD, THAT POVERTY, AND DOWNPRESSION, WILL NEVER STOP US FROM RISING TO OUR FULL POTENTIALS.

IN ALL MY WRITINGS OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE TRIED TO SHOW THIS SIDE OF THE JAMAICAN POTENTIAL , CULTURE AND SPIRIT.

MY REGGAE HAS DONE GREAT WORKS TO EDUCATE, STIMULATE, INSPIRE, AND ERASE THE HATE THAT IS IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD.

MY REGGAE IS MORE THAN THE MUSIC WHICH CARRIES ITS MESSAGES TO THE PEOPLES IN DISTANT LANDS.

IT CANNOT BE REPRESSED, SUPPRESSED, DOWNPRESSED, BY ANY FORCE OR ENTITY REAL OR IMAGINED!

BOLT AND THE WOMEN OF JAMAICA IN RIO- 2016 HAS SENT YOU THE MESSAGES.

YOU HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET.

YES! OUR SKINS ARE BLACK, BUT WHEN YOU SEE US COMING YOU BETTER GET OFF THE TRACK. YOU WILL NEVER BE, YOU WILL NEVER SEE ANY OTHER SUCH AS WE.

THE WORLD HAS SEEN THE TRUTH.

IT WILL STAND AS TRUTH FOR THE POSTERITY OF THE PEOPLE.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE WHO CREATED IT. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.
