Craig Cannonier On Racism & Discrimination

June 2, 2020 | 9 Comments

Craig Cannonier Bermuda December 2018“I, and all members of the OBA, condemn all forms of racism and discrimination. It has no place in this world and we stand in solidarity with those who choose to protest against these injustices,” OBA Leader Craig Cannonier said.

Mr. Cannonier said, “The events of the past week have been gut-wrenching and painful, revealing another example of inhumanity shown to a black male.

“It was an egregious and chilling act that has quite rightly shocked the world and for some of us it was impossible to watch. It should never have been committed against anyone, but the fact that, yet again, a black person has been singled out is appalling. This has to stop.

“I, and all members of the OBA, condemn all forms of racism and discrimination. It has no place in this world and we stand in solidarity with those who choose to protest against these injustices.

“We strongly support social justice and inclusion for all, and we must all work together to correct inequalities and the kind of structural racism we have just witnessed which, tragically, still remains far too common.

“We are our brothers’ keepers. This important social duty requires an honest appreciation of the problems faced by many in our diverse communities. It also requires a political commitment to find solutions to those problems.

“The OBA has that appreciation and commitment and we will work with others who share these core beliefs.”

    I have to visit a Government department tomorrow and I know already that it will be difficult

    Sorry but the first sentence of this article is totally untrue!

    Well what about an OBA commitment to end institutional racism in Bermuda? Easy to take the high ground against this evil elsewhere. The real test of sincerity is to start at home. At the local level, the rich continue to get richer, the poor poorer and this disparity across the racial divide in Bermuda is still stark. The racial composition of the country is not reflected in the boardrooms nor in the prisons. To be true to the words, there is the vacuum left by our loss of Dr. Hodgson. Will there now be actions to match the words?

  5. And you are the Leader of the party that has History and supporters that endorsed/endorsing racism in Bermuda.
    LMFAO

    What a bunch of BS…. as both political parties and the civil service practice racism and discrimination against Bermudians….

  7. Rhonda says:

    OBA’s best bet was to remain silent.

    They don’t have a good track record.

  8. Truth hurts but keep it real says:

    It’s not all of the oba/UBP jet gate so stop preaching false statements. If that was the case the part wouldn’t have changed the name and lost so many black members. This party has 5% black voters and lost the election 24 to 11 because it viewed by 95% of black voters as a racist or former racist party. Last I check neither the OBA when in charge or PLP supported the Gay community.

  9. This is a joke
