        duane no one was more “photo op’ than your past leader. he deals with the issues left by past legacy. talking of MEMOIRS there can be none better than “we had to deceive you”

    • Come Correct says:

  5. LOOK OUT, Stedman!! The milkman could have you brainwashed with all of his milk products!!!

  6. Think about it says:

    Good stuff Premier Dunkley! Mr. Graham has written some very inspiring books about how Teens can “Make it Happen” and succeed in life, let’s hope his talk at the BUEI is attended by some young Bermudians who can get inspired by him!

  7. Don't tell them the truth says:

    Michael Dunkley pay attention maybe you will learn to speak on the real issue and not just the ones that require a fake smile and handshake waste of effing film smh

    You all need to get life, stop acting like a bunch of rebels, this is a powerful black man with something positive( for the village) to share

    • Well he needs to know how Black men in Bermuda have been treated.

      • Mike says:

        How have they been treated. Still blaming the past huh? Seeing that “young black men” are the only ones killing each other on the Island!! Do explain.

        • Yes there are a handful of brain damage young men out there, like there are brain damaged young white men that are causing havoc on American Campuses.
          What I’m talking about is the injustices of racial profiling for over 4 decades where many Black men have been put on the Stop List for being stopped and searched for a spliff while the white boys where riding scot free with their weed, Black Professionals making less then their white counter parts, Black Contractors getting shunned over the Portuguese contractors, etc, etc.
          Do I need to explain more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Come Correct says:

        We all know how you treat women. Take your seat.
