    But everyone in Bermuda knows that only black people are the victims of racism! It’s a one way street. Bernews must have got their story mixed up. *rolls eyes*

    This appears to be a hate crime? “racially harassing” What is wrong with this person?

  3. Huh says:

    Where are Cordell Riley & Lynn Winfield from CURB on this?

    • Toodle-oo says:

      They’ll be on it just as soon as they have an excuse that justifies the assailant’s alleged behavior.

  5. ABM says:

    SMH, why are you guys hating on Desai? No judgment was passed down by the judge, am I correct? It seems like you guys have already labelled him as guilty! Thank god for the legal system, because if it was left up to you clowns everyone who operates differently than yourself would be locked up!!!
