    No disrespect, but it will be interesting to move Bermuda forward as a multi-cultural destination again and not just Gombeys and Front Street parades. We have a massive cross section of interesting cultural backgrounds here and I can only trust that we all benefit from full exposure as it was before certain individuals attempted to silence the very topic that our overseas guests fully enjoyed.
