Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch

“Once you go black, you never go back,” goes a popular expression which ironically lends itself to more than one interpretation. Asami Nagakiya, a calypso musician, would never go back home to Japan after visiting 36% black Trinidad for this year’s Carnival in Port-of-Spain. Asami was strangled to death, her bruised body abandoned among bushes and “heaps of discarded food and beverage containers” in Queen’s Park Savannah.
This year’s festivities, nevertheless, were deemed to have been “safe” by the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service. Harold Phillip, the “Gold Commander for Carnival”, explained that there were “no reported serious disruptions at any Carnival-related events.” This year’s celebrations saw a 46% reduction in “serious offenses”, boasted “Gold Commander” Phillip.
“But it was the reaction from Port of Spain’s mayor Raymond Tim Kee that got people talking,” the BBC reports:
“You know before Carnival I did make a comment about vulgarity and lewdness,” he said.
“Women have a responsibility to ensure they are not abused during the Carnival season. It’s a matter of, if she was still in her costume – I think that’s what I heard – let your imagination roll”.
The comments sparked a major backlash on social media in the Caribbean nation. […]
At the same time, some actually agreed with Tim Kee’s remark. Another Facebook user wrote: “We are a vulgar society. Half of the naked women [at the carnival] would not want their children to see them like that… When did nakedness became our culture?”
Kee’s less-than-sensitive statements attracted attention internationally, and the mayor was finally moved to resign; but there is a fundamental honesty underlying his seeming crudity. What do women of any race expect to happen when they visit a city inhabited by such obvious savages and then go reveling in their midst, unaccompanied by a male escort and half-dressed, to boot?
Col. Arthur Stephanos Mavrogordato, a British officer who had officiated in Palestine before taking charge of the peace in Trinidad and Tobago and bequeathing to the island nation’s Police Service its odd Star of David insignia, once placed a ban on the “indecent and immoral dances” and “juicy songs” of the calypso genre. Are “juicy songs” to blame for the natives’ behavior and their “vulgar society”, or is the problem somewhere in Tyrone’s genes?
Asami, for whatever it may be worth, was last seen by one of her friends at a KFC in Port-of-Spain.
