‘Leggo Beast’ Tamed At School

Students whose creativity is highly developed are inclined to be unruly. They are also likely to become the filmmakers, musicians, fashion designers, hair stylists, entertainment lawyers, etc, of the future. They need special care, not abuse. I think all high schools should identify creative students who can be allowed some freedom of expression.

One a di ting Obama well know a dis: wen yu talk tu people inna fi dem heart language, yu get nuff forward.

Mi No Want No Woman Look Mi!

Mi a big woman. Mi know mi mind. Mi naa follow 'Bible' go burn fire pon gay people.
Mi a big uman. Mi nuo mi main. Mi naa fala 'Baibl' go bon faiya pan gie piipl.

Bob Marley’s Literary Legacy

I suppose the translators could simply take over English words in exactly the same way that the English language captured lots of words from Latin an Greek! I think it's much better to try to find a Jamaican equivalent for the English expression.

Emancipation Day At Liberty Hall

In a famous speech delivered in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1937, Garvey prophetically declared, "We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind, because man is related to man under all circumstances for good or ill."

‘Bring In All Rastas, Dead Or Alive!’

Issuing a death sentence, Bustamante literally turned all Rastafarians into villains. Guilty or innocent, they could no longer expect to enjoy the protection of the law. All Rastafarians were completely demonised and became victims of comprehensive state brutality. The Coral Gardens 'Incident' was a chilling episode in a long history of state violence against Rastafari.
