A demand for an apology
I am grateful for your Letters to the Editor segment, which gives your readers a forum for the expression of their views and also other factual information.
I also appreciate the comments that are posted concerning the published letters.
My opinions differ from that recently expressed by Joe Wakefield, but I did not comment on it in your online comments section, or elsewhere.
I did, however, find the comment posted by “Andrew Outerbridge” very offensive and demand that he apologise.
I cannot speak about how all men view their mothers, but I firmly believe most black men hold their mothers in high esteem.
My mother and my father were born in St Kitts and settled in Bermuda almost 100 years ago. At the time, Bermuda and St Christopher and Nevis were, along with other colonies, collectively, referred to as the British West Indies. Inter-island movement was less restrictive.
What “Outerbridge” wrote is:
“ ... The mothers of both the Premier and Minister Caines left all-black countries to settle here. Why? Maybe because they saw opportunities and an inclusive environment that promised a great future as anything other is counterintuitive. Their children are the product of that decision ...”
Both mothers are married to Bermudian males and they raised their children with their spouses.
I don’t know of Mr Outerbridge’s family experience, but questions are raised if he finds the concept of mothers and fathers sharing the same country or residence a novel idea.
