The forever low wage worker
The 68yrs old man little girl flirter
That stand up dude that don’t wanna see nobody hurt her.
The okey doke revolutionary socialist to neo-liberal praise converter. The late night truk di pan Warmoes & Snijbonchi burger

The anti-media decolonization programmer. The human rights violations in our prison cells.
The international treaties neglectors
The Dutch health inspectors because we too scared to hold our own Black folks accountable on all sectors.
The offshore money makers, the trickle down economy haters.
The Aya and Monchi social commentary Tambu players. The Repsol oil and gas exploration deal in Aruba, the Abekwa, Orishas connections from Curaçao to Cuba.
The independence domino moves vs The Hague chess schemes. The homies stuck in public housing with Audi S4 dreams.
The coup d’etat IMF obedient budget cut men. The Black socialism ideology slut clan. The monthly million dollars oil refinery and Cat cracker lost revenues. The thousands of kids that could’ve gone to universities with that money you fools. The Maduro Bank 8 o’clock sponsered Telecuraçao news. The wise sociopolitical analysis of Adriaan Moen. The no bullshit thoroughbred union leadership of Wim van Lamoen.
The tropical tax haven, the human trafficking and sex enslavement.

The vote for me and afterwards shut the fuck up philosophy. The electoral fraud democracy.
The 2005 Hugo Chavez Frias Curaçao clone types. The 17000 caught in the political sovereign messiah sent by Jehova hype.

The drug economy boom in the upper class via containers. The nouveau riche newspaper dictators. The european H.I.V. medicine prices. The supermarket 6 yr old dumped frozen chicken vices. The LGBT radio bashing fashion crises.

The Baron Samedi revolts, the 2013 Dahomy welfare mother warriorettes cults. The Caribbean colonialism traps. The Tivoli 74 murdered Jamaicans in may 2010 and still nobody get VEX?

Golden Filigrana Chains

13 Jun

Life lessons labyrinth
Young blood squinted eyes
Extortioning reality
With tears
Daddy just died
Choirs of wailing women
Amulets round navels
White candles lit
the spirit flight
Golden Filingrana chains
swinging from the necks
of angels.

Thrown in the dungeon
Patron come crawling out
Caught in the jungle
We come swinging out
In the ghetto trapped
All of us aiming bucking
blasting, blood pouring out.

Giambo heads steady
licking heels
for social mobility
Haiti still suffering
watch them throw Vodun drones
at Obama & Hillary
Underground economies
unlike the ministers
keep the hood fed.
Demeanor be
Felix Chakutoe
port strike units
Donisio and them
still driving ’69 Buicks
That racial inferno year
we bit back at
the masters from
the land of tulips.

Thrown in the dungeon
Patron comes crawling out
Caught in the jungle
We come swinging out
In the ghetto trapped
All of us aiming bucking
blasting, blood pouring out.

Freedom fever
glowing foreheads
Self providing
communes on
spiritual war paths.
Invincible memories
on clouds.
Mama’s lips pout,
somewhere a child cries.
7.30AM school class
starts feeding kids lies.
Stuff them with
Soda pop poison,
greasy food
Listen look
Ya elders had
Decolonized diets
Before yo young
ole ass
ate the truth
…………….
And you still blindly
believe them health gangsters
they making fortunes while
our mothers dying from
all sorts of cancers….

Thrown in the dungeon
Patron comes crawling out
Caught in the jungle
We come swinging out
In the ghetto trapped
All of us aiming bucking
blasting, blood pouring out.

Street boys logic
rob Boolchenat
50-50 if caught
Still 3x a day a
meal in Piskelat
Others fade
aim their hustle
at self mastering
Tobo get coronated
by lambskin
Drug money got
reina chiki living out
her dreams while
Pedo pastors in
the tabernacle
be cackling.
White gods escape routes
Sprinkle Florida water,
3 mango’s
and bible verses
For a higher purpose
Vigil and prayer
Amado Romer
with the speed of
Goddess light
reincarnates back
into pastor Curtis.

Thrown in the dungeon
Patron comes crawling out
Caught in the jungle
We come swinging out
In the ghetto, trapped
All of us aiming bucking
blasting, blood pouring out.

Frente Sivil: A pressure group swinging a coup d’etat’ saving us from political ‘gangsters’?

6 Mar

The upsurge of a culture of fear seems to be a myth considering yesterdays successful pressure groups ‘Frente Sivil’ political rally to overthrow the MFK, PS, MAN government at the central union SSK building attended by a self estimated 2000 plus sympathizers. The previous rally held in december 2011 at Alameda was over the 1000 supporters indicating our young democracy is brittle but growing vibrant.

Okey doke pressure groups usually air grievances against a government but lock lips to beef with finance czars or corporate monarchs influencing our sociopolitical climate.

The novice bourgeois alliance pressure group ‘Frente Sivil’ speakers mimicked the same offensive insulting rhetoric they accused the seated government of for 18 months. That’s why critical observers gave them the side eye yesterday as the naming and shaming stand ups got applauded grandiose by the crowd. The reigning smack gospel eclipsed their democratic stratagem to weigh in more people power to the political decision making process.

Yesterday instead of bourgeois brouhaha supposed to be the perfect platform to take off the political fanatic blindfold and start discussing solutions to eradicate the Curacao crabs in a barrel politrix for once and infinite. People ran their mouths but were too shook to mention how Venezuela’s revocative referendum is a legit model to topple a ‘mafia’ government? A new modernized 21st century democratic participatory constitution. A new people empowered electoral system. A new media policy engaging critical citizens preventing them to entrap themselves in these old putrid patterns.

As for the so much talked about culture of fear. Pueblo Soberano the so-called socialist radical revolutionaries do be scared to actually flex some of those Latin American/Caribbean revolutionary hustles to force change for the sufferers. They might be stuck in that urban Willy Lynch myth maze. Now who going to shake down Wiels to return back to the noble social justice emancipating essence?

Keep in mind though that the marginalized, the strugglers out here their hourglass is running out of sand soon. Famed Tambu singer Pincho done told you: “Basta papia pone kabesnan huntu, Ban goberna Korsou, ken a hasi ken a laga hasi no ta nos asuntu” (Enough talking, let’s put heads together, govern Curacao, who did this who didn’t do that ain’t our business).

Recap time: If pressure groups say cabinet Schotte are mobsters then governor Frits Goedgedrag who approved the questionable minister team is a mafioso representing the Dutch mafia queen Beatrix who dropped by for an official head of state Dutch Caribbean ‘gang land’ visit last October. Salute.

[~] Why #Curaçao’ans act like they don’t have complexes during a political rally? So Blackface Zwarte Piet is not a racist colonial drone and completely ok to them?

[~] What’s the deal with bourgeois folks thinking their Dutch god complexed mind makes Curacao so much more superior than the rest of the Caribbean islands?

[~] Thank Goddess Jossy Rosales couldn’t be fooled by pied piper Onni Gonett.

[~] Lent is bringing out political fuckery instead of spiritual tranquility?

[~] Will Frente Sivil question TeleCuracao or remain silent on their televised dictatorship to get political news coverage?

[~] @RebelCapitalist is correct: “Our political and economic systems are reflexive of another both are corrupt and don’t work for most people.”?

[~] PM Schotte last minute energy manegement press conference was a pauper damage control scheme. 90 minutes show time quite ridiculous, say word?

Reprogram Educational System 2012: The Battle Of The Brave

4 Dec

Sitting inside of a Curacao class room must be a hell of a Dutch colonial drug. For the teacher and students. I might be wrong but that’s why we have the first of December every year to assess the strengths and weaknesses of our school systems. National education day should not just be a moment to celebrate 40 years of existence of teacher’s union SITEK. Not feeling their leadership and Maestronan Prekupa (Worried Teachers) movement spokesperson Mrs. Marbella Felipa reconfirms my suspicion that SITEK led by Mr. Lio Plantijn lacks vision, determination to bring real educational reform.

Our minister of Education Mr. Lio Jansen an ex head of school knows exactly what’s up. Member of the Pueblo Soberano party that always promoted radical educational change to form the independently thinking and acting Yu di Korsou (Curacaoan) this willful boycott to organize a debate a conference a discussion platform on the national day of education is once again a complete deception.

Our youth needs to get more verbal and demand their rights to enjoy quality education within this Dutch Kingdom. Check the student protests in Chili, Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico. How you learning from Dutch textbooks, doing exams created in the Netherlands but you are not receiving the same quality and educational tools as the Dutch students?
Teachers are censoring themselves and can’t seem to come up with the courage to start overthrowing this educational dictatorship installed by public and catholic school boards.

The system is vicious and brain drain is a real life nightmare where yearly 200/300 students leave Curacao (and most of them) to literally live and die
In the Netherlands.

Yesterday was TEDxCuracao (The Elite Doing-business) any presentations about education?

The three coalition leaders: Wiels, Schotte, Cooper are they aware of the essential role educational reform plays in a decolonization era?

Do we have a mediocre media lustful of cheap politics where education issues does not sell?

Why is a rural area like Banda Bou tormented with poor quality education?

Do you even care?

Afro-Curacaoan Comedy and Coonery Criticism in the Netherlands

7 Oct

The Curacaoan comedian Jandino Asporaat is on the island for five shows. Critical minds can’t take that Afro-Curacaoan mockery disguised as comedy.

The euro’s be coming in steady no doubt about that but the pay off also includes a systematic stereotype branding of the black Curacaoan living in the Netherlands inside the average Dutch white mind.

Two things caught my attention though: 1. His ‘Dino Show’ with sketches of Afro-Curacaoan, Afro-Surinamese, Indo-Surinamese and Ghanese characters is being prolonged on television by the same broadcasting company NTR that made the controversial Dutch Eurocentric slavery documentary ‘De Slavernij’.

2. The promo’s for his shows in Curacao is mostly to be heard on Dutch radio’s and Dutch newspapers excluding the Papiamentu media. Only Z86 the favourite radio listened by the ex-ruling elite as an exception.

Somewhere inside I die when I notice these commercialized rooted subliminals. Its like they saying: We only want ‘civilized’ Dutch speaking Afro-Curacaoans that won’t scare off our other target audience the Dutch Europeans residing on the island to come see the show.

Capitalizing off coonery is an art form too. I’m not claiming he does that all of the time but that is the first few impressions I got.

Doubtful are my feelings that the Afro-Dutch society understands and overstands the long lasting effects of comedy coon sessions in a white world like the Netherlands.

By not challenging artists like Jandino to polish his performances making it blend into a Dutch black self empowerment model we still be stuck in 2012 lightweight lamenting fucking Dutch racist bullshit like ‘Zwarte Piet’.

The moment we stop legitimizing everything that destroys our self image or stagnates it from growing will be the moment we win. The moment we smile.
