Colonialism In The Carribean
« on: September 18, 2005, 09:38:24 PM »

Greetings and blessings

InI just listened to a 2000 interview with Midnite's distributor and was suprised to hear his depiction of the way the carribean is being run.

Saying that the aftermath of colonialism is still heavily in effect, (which is of no suprise,) he also said that this has largely carried through even into music. Apparently in Barbados, reggae artists can only perform under the condition that they agree to not talk about certain subjects, amongst them ganja.

Also in Jamaica itsself, the song 'I Shot The Sheriff' cyaan be performed.

Looking for any perspective or information on this, particularly from anyone living there, but any and all is warmly accepted.

Give thanks
