“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”

No hope for Jamaica

Youth Politician Crystal Evans laments that she has no confidence in the executive, judicial or legislative system in her country. She believes that there is no true sense of justice and that every situation in Jamaica is truly a buy out… A loaf of bread can be procured at a community shop for $235 Jamaican dollars and a 9mm bullet can also be obtained on the “corner” for $280JMD. This is what life and death equates to in my homeland Jamaica. There is no Justice for the poor, no panacea from the harsh realities of life yet there is always satisfaction for the wealthy class and those who can afford our “buy out” culture. Bullets will soon be worth less than a loaf of bread that most of our mothers slice into pieces and give to us for breakfast with a little hot water to stave off the morning hunger. Truth be told we the youths see little hope for our future. We are disenchanted and diffident even about our political leaders and their efforts to chart a way out of these murky waters we are drinking from. Our young women are concentrating on ensnaring a man to meet and satisfy their financial needs seeing as they cannot get a job and some have too many small children with no one to leave them with. Scamming and Praedial larceny are the only viable careers our young men embrace to put food on their tables and clothes on their backs. Life has become a grave anticipation for death and warfare. Simplest dispute you have with a man now, he will reach for his gun and demand that you pay for the infraction or insult (real or imagined) in blood. That is the only valuable currency in Jamaica, people want everything paid in bloodshed. Tommy lee who is the most popular dancehall artiste with his demonic and carnage idealisation in his music has not defused this mindset but fastly encouraging a counter culture of macabre and lawlessness.

I told him in no uncertain terms that if a well off man from a wealthy class had suggested such a business to him, then he would not have question whether or not it was licit. A wealthy middle class developer swindles millions of USD dollars from several real estate investors while a youth entreprenuer is cast down in a pool of doubt and infamy for finding a loop hole in a “buy out” system which is the brainchild of a strategy utilised years before she was born.
