  2. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Clarence Hill is THE ONLY BERMUDIAN to earn a medal at the Olympics. Flora has not even attained that type of athletic standard.
    He won that medal while the U.B.P. was in power.
    Does one think for one minute that any attention was focused on Mr. Hill??
    Would any U.B.P. member from that time, even say anything about Mr. Hill??
    Of course not.
    That alone should let Born Bermudians know that racism is alive, well and is not going away.
    We must stand accountable for OURSELVES.

      What a stupid dialogue. Celebrate Flora’s unique achievements. Stop living in the distant past. What on earth has the UBP or politics got to to with this? Ignoramus. J
