Today is Kadooment Day in Barbados,the culmination of all the Crop Over activities.I have been mindfully watching everyone slowly working themselves into a frenzy and trying to figure out what it is all about.

Okay today we are going to be having the cultural exhibition of the Bands as they march past the judges at the National Stadium straight to the Spring garden Highway.The costumes will be depicting certain themes of relevance to our Caribbean society.Calypso music will be blaring or blasting the more popular songs of the season.Pomp and pageantry,colour and festivities,history and culture.

Almost everyone will be in some kind of frenzy today.Condom sales tend to skyrocket at this time as well as alcoholic drink.Skimpy wear is the order of day.They will be jutting and rutting and jucking today and not necessarily in that order. I am thinking to myself this could be heaven or this could be hell.

I hate to look at the Barbados tourists site that give the history of Barbados.The ones that talk of Columbus discovering these islands and the other foolish tales that the Bob Marley and Burning Spear called 'mis-education'.I agree with them as a matter of fact Burning Spear referred to Christopher Columbus as a 'damn blasted liar'.Thank god for Rastafari.One of the funniest stories is the one of the bearded fig tree and the name Los Barbados which was supposed to mean 'the bearded one'.In the words of Gary Cole from the book reflections;The Colonization of Barbados is one of the darkest events and evil stories of modern history.Four centuries ago,Spanish and Portuguese slavers started to kidnap,kill and drive out the thousands of peaceful Indians found on the island the Indians called Ichirouganaim.The exact location of the island was a carefully kept secret but Spanish and Portuguese soldiers and sailors knew the island as the barbarous island,"Los Barb…
