      No. Not everything is a joke you fool and misinterpretor.

      They ask for witnesses.

      Many don’t come forward unless it affects them.

    Please, let’s hope we aren’t bashing the Fillipino community again, and this is a random act.

    They are wonderful people.

    • I hope it isn’t happening :-( They are what we, (Bermudians) once were.In other words, the vast majority of Filipino’s are kind loving people that carry a great deal of self-respect…a perfect example of what many Bermudians need to be more like.

        Raymond Ray,

        If I think you mean what you mean, about the Filipinos being what WE (all of us-Blacks and whites) Bermudians once were, white people have always made the lives of Black people one hell of an existence. How do I know this? I experience it daily and history never sleeps. So, stop telling your god damn lies to ease your insane mind.

    what race was the alleged suspect?

    • Wtf says:

      Does it matter ?!

      • Justice! says:


        Of course it matters because everything darn thing in Bermuda is governed along racial lines. There’s no escape!

    I thought it was near Dundonald and parliament. It was immediately opposite Augustus funeral home. The guest worker was minding his own business walking home from what prob was the laundry mat and a Bermudian male physically assaulted him after saying you’re taking our jobs. There were what seemed to be a lot of witnesses. Hope the guy is ok. My prayers go out to him and to our Bermudians who don’t have a job to take care of their families ….

  8. Justice….that was a racist comment…and incorrect…..and insulting…..and as a result just plane nasty!…behaeuasouf!

  9. These are our guests…we should take better care of them.We all bleed red.
