Jamaican Monetary Policy: Behind The Music
"So, we called up the Central Bank of Jamaica ask what was going on with their music video and they put us in touch with Wayne, Robinson in economist and deputy governor at the Central Bank of Jamaica. Hello Wayne you're here with us now thanks for joining us I very basic question. What does the Central Bank of Jamaica do okay. Have you heard about the fit? The US. I'm sure. Yes. The equivalent of the US Fed Meka. Responsible for overseeing the financial system. Are also responsible for monetary policy. The issuing of notes and coins so I was on twitter. kind of scrolling through very distressing stories and I saw something that you posted on the Jamaican. Central. Bank. And it was like. It was all these dancers and it was like it was like a music video. Yes, think you are speaking to our, what was I looking at? Okay, the government took a policy decision. As part of its economic reform program. Transitioning or monetary policy framework and our and our monetary policy strategy. To what is called A full-fledged inflation targeting strategy. This innocence see what you're saying now is exactly like that is the kind of language I expect out of a central bank right I mean, it's very, it's very technical. Word. And precisely you're. I think you're not alluding to the challenge we face then. How do we break down just what I said to you? In language that. Every single individual can understand and can appreciate. And that was a challenge. Tour Pr Department and one of the things nor Jamaica. You knew that we're a country that is renowned and we love music and the PR department. decided to try to capitalize on this to try to tell the story in a language that everybody's speaks and everybody understands that language is is music particularly Reagan music music videos with like dancing and like everybody's talking about inflation rates. Yes. and. It's the what is it the low stable and predictable inflation? Predictable inflation. And inflation just it's it's the amount that prices rise. So inflation really high that means prices are going up a lot and and people get really scared because they're saving starts to be feel less valuable. Also. Begin to worry. So, then they will then go back on their investments as well. So that will affect employment and growth I feel like for time at least at the Central Bank of the US, there was sort of an effort made to be as cryptic as possible. The idea of clearly communicating monetary policy so that everyone can understand like that's actually not that's pretty new. Roof central banks. To recognize this imperative. And, a number of central banks have tried to change their approach. But I think coming out of the global financial crisis where one of the major challenges encountered was that are traditional tools of monetary policy I. Think Right across the globe central banks recognize that we had to augment those traditional tools and in a context we're not sion's where the market expectations and with an auditor man's. Rations really matter a lot. The central banks came to the realization that the hot to then a just how they communicate in order to affect those very same expectations with our which are important. Central banks they're known for being very formal, very stuffy cryptic, and even though there has been some movement away from that like you guys have just gone like totally in the other direction I mean this is like speedy. It's like exuberant and fun and people are dancing at it's just like so it's like the opposite of everything I associate with central banks. That was a deliberate strategy because we're. At the outset, the first thing that we needed to do was to grab people's attention. Because other say economics monetary policy issues tend to be very critic very boring very to use your term Recoba crosses as has been very stuffy. So we had to radically change that. So this is the first step was to grab attention. And then the knicks fees then was to then try and break down don't issues to do that. We had to do something radical. I feel like one of the things that central banks really try to do it's very important for them to be taken seriously because there's a lot of trust that is necessary in a banking system. was there any worry that like this might make people trust the central bank glass that it might seem like less serious? No No. No. That wasn't our concern really because, okay. One thing you really recognize with a need to connect to people. You can't build that trust unless you create a bridge on this, you meet that connection. And so this was the main strategy that we thought was necessary to make that connection in order to build that trust. Do you think other central banks should take a page from you guys and be More fun more accessible or sure almost definitely. But the precise strategy the precise methode would be a function of the audience that they're targeting. Are you in? Are you in Kingston Right now? Yes. The capital. Yes. Are you working from home? Are you going to the office now Willa? Combination? Some days in some days I I work from home. One of the strangest thing is that coming into the office? You're virtually alone here. Because we have minimal staff that that comes in. Do you Miss Your Coworkers Oh? Yes. Oh yes. The coffee breaks the chops accommodate. Over coffee. Yes. That's sort of camaraderie dot a about various direct social interaction. And the two should know we are thinking of ways you know to. Sort of encourage this evening this virtual world. Well, thank you so much for making the time I. so appreciate it. That's that's my pleasure. Stacey. Yambio. Nation.
Black Lives Matter In Belize
"Once again, this is Oscar Fernandez today on the show we put the spotlight on Belize and how the black lives matter movement shines a light on how believes is history has been excluded from Central American history, and so we're joined today by Nicole Ramsey who's a Candidate in a Department of African. American and African Diaspora studies at UC Berkeley she has an article that came out last month in medium entitled as Remind Central America to think outside the box she joins us today over the phone. Welcome to show Nicole Ramsey. Thank you for having me. Excited to be here is good to have you with us. I couldn't my introduction brief because actually pulled it from your article regards to Belize Central America. Once again, the Arctic was entitled Belise Remind Central America to think outside the box and when the central arguments you make in your article is that the black lives matter movement and I took this directly from your article shines a light on how belise history has been excluded from Central America. So, with that in mind, let me just go right there to the beginning and ask if you could elaborate and state your argument by what you mean by the black lives matter as pertains to beliefs which in turn pertains to Central America. Yeah for sure. So what envisioning what I was in? When I came up with the article title you know those with everything that's going on. There's been a lot of discussion and in terms of black lives matter and what that means for black population living outside the US I find a lot of conversations especially. I'm really interested in like conversations that happen online. I was really I guess interested in how people were conceptualizing black lives matter as mostly an African American movement which you know there's a particular history and reasoning of why how black lives matter came in to being. particularly in the US. but it was it was just very interesting to see how mostly folks from Latin America. Caribbean. Europe other places. Outside saw that as distance from what was going on in their particular countries. So. In the case, of Central, America you know black lives have always mattered. There's always been struggles of On, the ground with black people fighting again, know the colonial administration and anti-black midst especially what's going on with Garifuna communities across central? America. So that's what I was thinking about. That's what I had in mind when I, came up with this article and it was just kind of talk about it later too because it's kind of like this long history of exclusion in the region and the region and how people conceptualize Central America so I thought in order for us to. Even. Delve into what You, know black lives. Matter Movement Looks Central America certainly have to acknowledge. Black Communities and black histories in the region I. so that's kind of where I was getting at and I'm a fan of history off it's kind of like a title things together. Absolutely we just had a show last week on the Gutty Funez on Duras and in a large way they play a central role. Belize as well. So we'll get to them once again during the course of the conversation. But with that said, there are other groups that make Belize very complex as far as this community is concerned, there's some other groups that need to be recognized. So I wonder if you could also explain the complexity of the Afro Belizian community in believes because not every black person in Belize is necessarily a Gutty Fuda, their other complexities and needs to be addressed here. Correct. Yes for sure. And that's even including myself I'm not guarantee now I'm what you would consider creole. So depending on. The vantage point, but you look at central. America play believes etc. Gua. Even think accent complaints with endurance creole just like black. Identity of black population mixture of blackness feeding back to the enslavement of large populations in the business. So thinking about that identity in believes to historic. Black Group are black creoles. And the Afrin Vision is getting food and I say black correal's because it's. It's common to meet somebody blond-haired blue-eyed of like, who visually looks why to also call themselves. And it's also the language that they also speak in believe. So there's a lot of complexity there and fusion So I really like to say black creoles because also like the history of creoles and believe ties back to kind of that enslavement period. And of course. When I was there last full for feel work you have legal whole bunch of other. black groups that are that have been in believe for quite some time you have like a very Pan Caribbean. migration and group within believe. So you can meet somebody from Jamaica. You can meet somebody from Barbados Trinidad. So that's also present there. and then recently you have a lot of immigrants from. The continent diamond a few people from Nigeria I. Think someone someone from Ghana, and then of course, from Haiti as well. considering migration Haitians to central. So there's like different levels of that. But in terms of like historic, it's black KRILL and offering digits Garifuna and I do like to. Talk about them within the compass of affable believers because there has been like a mixture between two. It's not unusual to meet somebody with a creole mother and A. Father vice versa So it kind of intertwined throughout but the cultures are very distinct and that's important to note they have a different history different time line of you know. Experience within the country which kind of work to conceptualize how they're viewed within beliefs but I think that's very important to also considering language racial formations. So yeah.

Sleeping Soundly and White Grapefruit
"The. Forbidden Fruit. The, smaller Schadeck. One of the Seven Wonders of Barbados. The grapefruit has been called many things in its history. And compared to the lemon or the orange. The grapefruit is a fairly recent addition to the citrus family. It was first spotted on the island of Barbados in seventeen. Fifty. By. Reverend Griffith. Hughes who documented his find in his book the Natural History of Barbados. Now, the genetic origin of the grapefruit is actually a hybrid mix. One, ancestor of the grapefruit was the Jamaican sweep orange. which is itself an ancient hybrid of Asian or inns The other was the Indonesian Pummel. One story of the fruits origin is that a certain captain attic brought Pablo seeds to Jamaica and bread the first fruit. Although it's more likely that it probably originated as a naturally occurring hybrid between the two plants sometime after they had been introduced there. The grapefruit like all citrus fruit is a Hispanic them or a large modified berry with a thick rind. And was known only as the shattuck until the nineteenth century. So, how did it come to be known as the Grapefruit As it turns out. It's a relatively new occurrence. The first etymology of the name grapefruit is from an eighteen fourteen book by John Lunen where it was said to have the name because of its resemblance in flavor to the grape. But that doesn't really make sense because anyone who's tasted a grapefruit knows that that isn't true. Most scholars think that he was just attempting to explain the origin of a name he ran across. The most popular belief for where the name comes from is that it actually refers to the shape of the fruit not the. Grapefruits grow on the tree in clusters, which often are said to appear similar to grapes. But there are only a few other languages that make the leak between grapefruits and grapes. In Romance Languages. Grapefruit usually shares the same name as its ancestor. The pomerleau. For example, pomp them Oh in Italian and pump Mussa and Spanish. In, fact Romanian is the only romance language to distinguish between the two. A. Few other languages have also adopted the American word grapefruit even though they don't have the same word for grape. Examples of these are Dutch Swedish and Turkish. But this has led some etymologists chiefly John Cardi to suspect that grapefruit is also named after the Pomerleau. The Pablo, scientific. Name. Is Citrus Maxima. which can reasonably be translated as great fruit. A reference to both the Pablo and the fruit size. After a few decades that may have gotten corrupted into grapefruit. But we may never really know for sure. Unlike other earlier citrus fruits like the orange, the lemon and the lime the grapefruit received a rather cold reception. Although already swimming and citrus at the time most fruit lovers and Florida found the grapefruit to be too sour to enjoy on a regular basis. As a result, it was not widely planted when the Florida citrus industry was rapidly expanding. In fact, the grapefruit was just considered an exotic novelty fruit until the late nineteen twenties.

Rocky Road with Science Diction
"Both Fenton's and dryers have pretty straightforward stories for how they invented rocky road in dryers version. It was William Dryer himself who one day in nineteen twenty nine did to make an ice cream with nuts chocolate and marshmallows but at the time, marshmallows did not yet come in small versions that came in cheats. So he took his wife's picking shears and cut the marshmallows into four pieces and then stuffed in the ice cream and Taba rocky road was born dryer says the name was meant to quote give folks something to smile about in the face of the Great Depression. According to Fenton's it was a candy maker on staff who came up with it story goes one day. He was making a candy bar with you guessed it nuts chocolate and marshmallows, and he was like you know what would be a great idea is if I put this candy bar in the ice cream and he did it and it was hit via end, the rest is history for over two years. Elissa tried to find out who's story was true.

Would Weird Al do attribute to Vanilla. Vanilla is the definition of boring and it has a boring name to go with it. But Rocky Road Sounds Fun playful even somehow delicious which it shouldn't it is a road with rocks in it But when it comes to food names, it's not just what the word means. It's how it sounds. It's something that linguists and food marketing types seem to understand very well. At my little grocery store here in San. Francisco. In my little neighbourhood of Brunel Heights Dandruff ski is a linguist. He wrote a book called the language of food. And I was just scanning the cracker aisle and I noticed that every single cracker name had an in it and I was like something's going on here. So I started really from the cracker aside and I thought well, what's the opposite of crackers but that would be ice cream Dan decided to run a little experiment he went online downloaded eighty-one ice cream flavors from brands like Ben and Jerry's haagen-dazs. Then he went to a diet website downloaded six hundred cracker brand names and he noticed a pattern it had to do with the vowels I just counted how many of these ice creams versus crackers which one had more front vowels like e or Which one had more back vowels like you're all and there was a striking difference. Alright. So Front vowels the E in cheese the IT. Feel higher tongue moves. When you make those sounds, you're kind of lifting at toward the front of your mouth. Cheese. Now, say chocolate Mousse. Those words are full of back. AL's pay attention to your tongue again, chocolate. Mousse. This time it's hold more towards the back. Then discovered that the cracker names had nearly all front vowels. Vs and is. So. That's your cheeses and wheat thins and Krispy triscuit crisps chicken in a biscuit. But the ice creams that's back vowels at your your Jamaica Almond Fudge chocolate, your Caramel, your cookie dough, your coconut, and your rocky road. So

"It there too in late March of seventeen thirty. Nine Governor Governor. Edward for Lonnie commissioned Colonel John Guthrie to negotiate a peace treaty to end the Maroon War Guthrie started with captains cut joe and ACAPA Pong of the leeward. Maroons trelawny himself was eager enough to get this over with that. Instead of just staying in towns await for a treaty to be brought the him he hiked out to vantage point near the negotiation so he could be on hand to sign the treaty as soon as it was finalized. Joe's signed of the fifteen point treaty on March first of Seventeen thirty nine the treaty put an end to hostilities between the British and the LEEWARD. Maroons and that granted them freedom in liberty. Along with fifteen hundred acres of land in northwest Jamaica stretching out from trelawny town the main leeward settlement through what's known as cockpit country the LEEWARD. MAROONS had the right to hunt on the island. As long as it was not within three miles of white settlement they also had the right to plant crops and raise livestock and sell L.. What they grew and raised at the market as long as they had a license to do it? The treaty also offered the Leeward maroons some legal protections and assigned them some obligations. The Marines had the right to petition officers and magistrates for Justice in the event that a white person did them harm the leeward. Maroons could also so handled justice for crimes that their own people committed. As long as there's crimes were not severe enough to warrant the death penalty in which case that was supposed to be handed over to the British court. They had to have an annual meeting with Jamaica's commander in chief. He was British as to white people whose roles were not really defined the treaty where to live with the maroons. Enter Lonnie town. I'm imagining that. These were almost like ambassadors. who were living they did? It didn't really specify what they were supposed to be doing. In this treaty it was also up to the LEEWARD. Maroons to maintain roads between their settlements and the British towns. Some of the treaty's terms instantly earned the leeward. Maroons a lot of enemies. They had to quote take kill suppress or destroy rebels on the island which usually meant other maroons. But more controversial he quote if any negroes shall hereafter run away from their master or owners and fall into captain cudgels hands they shall immediately be sent back to the Chief Magistrate of the next parish where they are taken and those that bring them are to to be satisfied for their trouble as legislature shall appoint in other words following the signing of this treaty if people escaped enslavement and made their way to cut joe in the LEEWARD maroons. MAROONS would send them back. This made Jamaica enslaved population incredibly angry and this was the case for some of his own people to one faction attempted a last minute coup to keep the treaty from going into effect but when Cudgel heard about it here arrested four of the ringleaders and turned them over to the governor especially considering how much Maroon survival. Until this point had evolved loved had involved raiding plantations and liberating people who were enslaved. Their people saw this as a huge betrayal quite understandably and like that continues still today. The governor recognizing that the deep anger stemming from these provisions had the potential to make the situation and on the plantations worse instead of better sent troops to one of the plantations descent had been the loudest severely punished the people in slave there an executed cupid many of them for the most part the windward. MAROONS did not even know that. These negotiations had happened once those treaties were signed but once they learned learned about it they realize that between the British and the Leeward maroons they were vastly outnumbered so under duress they signed their own very similar treaty. Eh on December twenty third the captain from the windward. Maroons who signed this was a man named clough. Things are relatively peaceful between the British. And the MAROONS for more than fifty years. But the British population on Jamaica as before continued to grow including taking over the land. That was supposed to be allotted to the MAROONS Skirmishes started flare up again and the Maroon stopped returning escapees from the plantations and they started rating. Those plantations again then two. MAROONS were convicted of stealing pigs. And they were publicly flogged. This punishment was is carried out by the foreman of the prison in Montego Bay. who was black and it was done in front of some people who had escaped from enslavement? Who the marines had returned and watching from the prison? These returned escapees taunted and jeered the two minutes they were being punished. The maroons anger anger over. This incident was twofold. They felt number one under the terms of the previous treaty. They should have been able to handle doling out their own punishments the way Hey. The punishment had been carried out was also particularly humiliating. This time the conflict was much shorter lasted only about got a year. Governor Alexander Lindsay ordered the Maroons to stand down by August twelfth. Seventeen ninety five but nearly all of them refused. He extended ended the deadline to December twenty first and then to January first of the following year. Finally it took the recruitment of additional forces and a shipment of hunting dogs is brought in from Cuba to finally get maroons to surrender. That previous conflict had been a lot lot lot longer but this one was a a lot more efficient And that surrender finally happened in March of seventeen ninety six. Although many of them ruins didn't actually lay down their arms until a little later even when the fighting was over Governor Lindsay considered the situation way too precarious to allow the Marines to return home. He was particularly worried about the ones from trelawny town. which was the largest Marines settlement in Jamaica so oh he boarded five hundred? Tra- Lonnie town maroons onto to transport vessels that were waiting in the harbour by port. Royal with the plan of of deporting them in this. He.

These are people who are immediately being affected by these Erin water quality problems and they're able to air their grievances directly and get contact information for the industry contact attacked information for the government so that they can follow up on on these issues so that was very good. Although we can't say that the public education campaign that we did for for the clean air and water project was directly responsible for some of the announcements. That happened last year. We do think that it went a very long way to kind of Oh placed Added pressure on the government of Jamaica to do something about the air quality issues especially as it relates the rebuttal insisted on we feel very good about the campaign and the the release of that review and the kind of advocacy.

There seems to be no movement in that direction. If it's not moved what's the next move and if you're not gonNA move it when we're looking at the report that was released by the last week and the results of the reports. Were not really very surprising. There was a huge fire at the Dome Books and it negatively impacted air quality but what was concerning. was that in the report that we saw where there are already wanted to issues in the aerial air. That already suffering from poor air following an incident ninety-six actually making one bad situation much worth of so. Let's talk about this study. Marked increases in toxic gases forty six pollutants were detected from the analysis conducted. was that surprising to you. A report that said had some some of those component two and a half times what it should be the benzene. It was frosty times.

I'm relatively new so so leadership in the organization we have people on staff I'd say about because sometimes we because we have our relationships with some former staff members.

"Know. I'll try to keep myself tape today. Did but when they reflect with no one to our our my I you know. I'm not sure how did call this time. They did. Act that is non incoming fire for us and by personally. Don't believe that that's that's my personal view is a good ride and if you have a good heart they told you that you have to be a Christian to go to heaven I I don't the thing that okay. So he definitely has had some kind of teaching saying the Lord or the Lord is good Lord and he knows is about the coming judgment. You know he's talking about the Lord coming with fire and talking about Noah's Ark and he is communicating something that a lot of people believe not just in Jamaica but all over America they talk about judgment but if God is good good. He's not going to judge anyone. If God is good he's going to be nice he's going to be sweet. No one's GONNA get hurt. And that is a common belief and I kind of call that the lopsided view of God God has a bunch of different attributes. Love is one of them. But if you focus only on that one an attribute of God you're going to have a lopsided view. God you're going to have a God that is all one attribute and none of the rest. It's it's important to see God as he presents himself so yes God is love but he's also righteous he's also a judge he's also the god of vengeance upon upon his enemies and so God has many different things and so anytime you take one of his attributes and focus only on that you're going to have a a wrong view of God and so some people do it in the opposite way the only focus on God's wrath and so they have a God who they only think is mean and nasty the and these people usually become very critical because they see God is critical. They see God as someone who's just mean and so it's important to study the entire Bible and learn all the attributes of God and not place one over the other not placed the one you like the best in the forefront of all the other attributes tributes of God and so a lot of people do that and it seems right away that that's what this man is doing and so Let's see what happens. There is some kind of judgment that's going to happen and you have to have a good heart is to said pure heart cleaner. Don't lie by then commander if that's the case let's have a clean heart live good to watch. People don't grudge somebody for their own own. That's not yours. You know you work hard. You try to make it in the in some good formal for his every no-man's perfect and it's true knew that when he at manifest as some people say the Lord has manifest themselves into Mary's womb become the flesh on the bone and you walk art and he said No. That's why maybe at said life. I give them far. They don't know what the I've done so he says it's not easy being a human. He knew we weren't perfect. Nobody's perfect so let me let me ask you this my friend so you said that the way that you pass the judgment is by being being being good order being righteous being pure how are you how are you doing with that. Is your heart clean so often people will bring up the fact that you need to be good in order to get to heaven. They'll mention the ten commandments. Once in awhile and that's great for me because my goal in part of the conversation is to get a person to look at the Ten Commandments. It's so when someone brings it up on their own. It's a very easy segway to say Okay Ten Commandments. Let's look at him. How are you doing with that? Is Your heart clean. There's a way you can you can know you mentioned the Ten Commandments K.. By looking at the Ten Commandments. We can see where we're at before a holy God so let me ask you this. Would you consider yourself to be a good person. I think so I think so too 'cause allied on my heart and I because I'm a smoker a drinker. That's the things under that people do even though a lot of Christians tell you that they're separating nufemme dot. Org lied. I mean come on you drive a car window. There was no history back. Today's wasn't driving. Your car. Delight took it took a ride from a donkey to to to stable. That's true no we are getting more comfortably comfortably in Newark. I don't know what the car has to do with his sin but He is saying people say you shouldn't smoke pot. And he's got to join in his hand and he's basically saying it's not really that bad now. Another thing he said was as far as smoking and drinking goes. That's just things on the earth that people do not sin. That's just stuff that people do. Well all sin is stuff people do. They're either doing wing something by breaking God's law or they're thinking something and breaking God's law that way but also Senate stuff that people do mine kind is making so how much little stuff far US human being which they got the knowledge an inspiration from God's worse but they're making it so much you know a checked into human being that it's not easy for you to see those stuff won't do them. You know something that up but you got a lot of people that don't smoke orange and even though you got a lot of Christian they were allowed to save your life is not Senate but yet still you would allow to save your life so no one is that that it does leaves back to that point right here so. I think that there are a lot of Christians that say things that don't make sense but we don't have to worry about what all the Christians say we need to worry about what the Lord says right and by looking at the Ten Commandments. We can kind of see for ourselves. What we're doing slum? Let me ask you this. How many lies do you think you've told? In your whole life listen mcgarity ricotta cheese. Fuel is okay now just for the record. I have no idea what he just said but I did hear the word lies so I'm just going to keep listening and see where this goes lies. Let me tell is not the simple allies overdose forget to excite it rise up to see a midlife are getting me with problems that I would think that would take myself in any problem onto our so. Have you ever ever told lies that you weren't telling to save your life. You just told them off problem or be or because you wanted to get your way with some. I've been I. I've been incarcerated incarcerated before an ad ally to make up a story does not to put other people in problem dot was not snitching. Sure so what do you call someone who tells live who does does lies a liar. You're liar have you ever stole something even even something small a pencil when I was a kid Lighter you know but I I'm not GonNa see me break break into somebody's house and go in there but stealing pens from me weak we can we can. We can still without breaking into someone's house right. So what do you call someone who steals things. Your teeth ever use God's name in vain use God's name as a cuss word no cost or to express discuss or anger like you use when you're in trouble US Gods God's name in a in a bad way a lot of people do but not I personally not I add got angry at one point when I never did that. I just got ignorant I. I was talking to Muslims asking. God Why does that happen to me in blind and you know and undenied relaxed Beg For forgiveness which I think he did you know but you have news. God's name in vain that's called blasphemy right. It's taken the name of the Creator and dragging it through the dirt. Define that for me more. Give me an example. So using God's name in vain would be to use God's name like inappropriate way. Maybe say Jesus Christ but you say it in in a way where you're angry. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's that that not only me. I think that a lot of people orna before about yeah. That's true. Yeah okay so that's called blasphemy. So he's starting to squirm a little bit. He started not enjoy the so much. So I'm going to thank him. I'm GONNA thanks income for bearing with me and being patient you know and I understand that it is a easy or fun thing to be confronted with your sin. So I'm going to be as gracious as I can through the whole process that thanks for doing this interview. So have you ever Looked upon a woman with lust. Yeah I think that That's something that even if a married man he married for twenty years you can get an email looks if you think it's even wrong but you're not doing the action you know that's natural for you to see something and think about but not doing it so if you think about it wrong then we are on well. Jesus Christ himself he actually said you know you're not supposed supposed to commit adultery. But I say to you if you look at a woman with less you're committing adultery in your heart see. That's God's standard are our standards are very low but but God standards are very high k.. So if we've looked at a woman with less as far as God's concern we've committed adultery in our heart and then last question. Have you ever hated someone. We've been really angry at someone I've been angry at someone but hatred is not something I keep in my heart. I I personally think that you gotta you leave that part to God. You Know I. I'm not saying our dislike you but not to a point where I hate you eight you you know because you got some certain people you gonNA agree with or whatever but I don't really Aliki Ages in my I'll to let go you know that's good but I won't forget already happened do not. This is true so but you have been angry with someone. Jesus said you know you're not supposed to commit murder but I say to you if you've been angry with your brother you've committed murder already in your heart again. God standards are a lot higher than us. He looks at the heart. He knows. Those are our thoughts. You got murdered your heart murdering your heart. Yeah absolutely so then. You've got another thing about it so much. You know so much Ado n Norman is perfect. That's true fate we all. I think that this is something that people live and feed off the Lard. The fate that we have in him. 'cause I got faith not not because I'm not aggressively. So he's got faith and he's basically saying well as long as you have faith that's what matters and that's a common thought people. We'll say things like well as long as you believe in something and that something works for you. Then that's what matters or maybe there's a thought as long as I believe in in God in some form than God's going to be okay with me because I believe in him now what they're not realizing that if they believe in God auden some form and it's not the god of the scriptures then they're believing in an idol and idolatry is a sin so a lot of people just kind of thing. Yeah well as long as you got faith. That's what matters when in actuality you can have your faith in the wrong thing do you. Do you think that it's important. To have your faith in the right thing or the white right. One for instance. If I had my faith in a police officer that he was GonNa to help me but that police officer turned out to be corrupt mankind if I had my faith in in anything if I had my faith in this chair right here but the chair was old and broke when I sat on it my faith might might be real but it might be placed in the wrong thing. So it's it's important for us to make sure our faith is is breath so let me ask you this my friend. You've been very honest with me and I and I thank you. You've you've committed many sins just like me right. Nobody's perfect like you said said if you're creator was to judge you today if you were. How old are you joining? Three twenty three. If you happen to get hit by a car or or or somehow die beef today before I almost I almost dimes out to be very grateful absolutely but if you were to find yourself dying today and you stood before your Creator he was to judge you and he saw you as a liar and a thief and a blasphemer a murderer heart and adulterer heart do. Do you think he would see you as someone who is innocent or someone who is guilty of breaking his law. I would think you would sell me as somebody loss as what I think in my head because Dan I think I'm lost from the truth as a lot lot of people there. I always ask God for forgiveness that if today if he comes hours in around the nomination I wasn't I was lost and confused all cutting tradition You know confusion. That's going on with the Bible and in the world and not only say because you got so many hundred different uneven nation worshiping the Lord so I think I know I'm GonNa do not thing I know so okay now. This is awesome awesome. This guy just admitted that he thinks he's lost and so even though at the beginning of the conversation he saying well. Maybe it's reincarnation nation maybe God's going to judge me but he's not really going to judge me harshly now the real issue with him coming out he saying I'm lost now in a minute. We're GONNA see that. He's kind of using his loss nervous as an excuse possibly to be lost to basically say I'm lost and because I'm lost God's GonNa be okay with me because he knows I don't know everything kind of thing and I and I'm going to deal with that but but I just love the fact that this guy just admitted that he's lost. You know what my friend. That's actually a very good place to be because you're humble about it you admit that you don't know everything you admit that that you could be wrong and I think it's very important for us to understand that God is bigger than us. He knows more than us. And I really appreciate the fact that you would admit that that you call yourself lost and I think that's a great description of what you've just said so so if God was to judge you based on his law he would find you guilty right he would find you guilty of being a liar and a murderer and a thief and all these things well. I'm yeah I'M GONNA I'm GonNA disagree with you. Know I think all right if those are the truthful ways to go in heaven and yes well. Here's the thing that is. That's God's law so according to his law God will judge all sin now. I'm not now. This isn't the end of the story K.. But but if this was the only thing that got it ever done with this if got it only given his law you haven't kept the law. I haven't kept a law and because of that. No Man no woman can get to heaven simply by keeping God's law because all of us have sinned all of us fall short the glory of God in you know no absolutely barnes so yeah. This guy's definitely been to church at some point. The fact that he said he was born in sin. I mean that's Romans five nineteen for as through the one man's disobedience meaning atom the many were made sinners the Bible says we were made sinners. And it all goes back back to Adam's disobedience so this guy actually knows more than most people I talked to you in order for you to live the right way. I think you gotTa be light job due to the cause in the Bible about this job that got us The Creator took away. His cattles is why he was being sued right. Everybody was that blaspheme against a lot and was like no and then got repaid him in a lot of ways that you could never imagine so I think that that's one of these humbled you know. Absolutely it's good for us to be humble. Let me let me ask you this. Does it concern you at all that if you were to die today and stand before God any was to judge did you. You would be guilty of committing all these sins and that and that you would end up in Hell if God was to judge based on that does that concern you at all it it. It does to be honest because nobody wants to go to add but then in is of being a human being autozone fully that if I personally think that God has a hard of you know something good and pure and you can look into you in your life and seeing that you did wanted to try. But you'll be lost and mankind. Mankind unkind as ruling so much. By God's were bringing

"When he did that he he he defeated death but he also paid the price for your sin? See Our problem. Is that when we were judged by. God we're not GonNa have enough righteousness to enter into the presence of a holy God but when we put our faith in Jesus Christ in in effect we're putting our faith in his righteousness and not in our own basically admitting God the father I don't have enough righteousness but I'm GONNA put my faith in Jesus Christ and what he did for me on the Cross. And so that's why God commands Allman Allman everywhere to repent and. That's the way that a person gets right with God by trying to be good or not by trying to make up for all the bad things you did but right by accepting what Jesus Christ did on the Cross as a free gift from God turned from your sin. Put Your faith in Jesus Christ and you'll be saved saved from the punishment you deserve. You do that by faith and once you're born again God changes your heart. He begins to give to to change your desires. And you go from someone who's been following after the world following after yourself and you begin to be a Christian someone who is a Christ follower someone who follows after Christ what do you what do you think about that. What do you think about that so explaining things to people if I've talked for a while I want to know their thoughts? I want to know what author thinking because whatever they're thinking that's going to determine where I go from here obviously. This guy is heard the Bible. I want him to understand is clear as possible. Well how this can apply to him. So that's why I want to know. What is he thinking? Well that's that's not Something bad 'cause that's actually something great to be a father of Christ yes I would understand only if you understand. Most of what you're doing you know online. Me That is that is that would be a different case for the wanting wanting to yes. I do a Lotta Times I do say you know I want to get closer and closer..

"Jamaica had a lot in common with other hustlers. She was ruthless. She was violent went. She had an insatiable appetite for money and power but she had another asset. None of the other big players had she was a woman and as a woman Jamaica was acutely aware that she was expected to do less to be less cunning less aggressive than the men around her at at first Jamaica was resentful of this unfair presumption of inferiority but in the drug slinging business or as insiders call it the Game Jamaica learned that men's underestimation of her was an advantage in fact Jamaica's femininity brought her to the very top of the game and awarded awarded her the prizes she most desired money and control in Nineteen eighty-one Jamaica.

"And that's really just about you know, stretching the meat making it flavorful. And and also tend to rising. Yeah. Cookie sheet of time to make it you know to make it accessible and palatable to eat because it was not high quality protein. So when you talk about your legacy and the past you didn't just stop it. You are family like you took it all the way back to the to the sugar plantations. We did a lot of research, which we really wanted to understand the context of the food in the context of a woman like, you know, our great grandmother, like how did how did she exist? I mean what what brought her into being. And the irony of all of that. I think which you know, I don't know if this is a documented truth, but it's the truth we took away from it is that she existed because she was outside of the bone Dreeze of polite society she existed because she was the descendant of generation of women who learn. By farming their own provisioned groans that they could trade that that produce at at markets. And then from that, they could gain some sort of financial independence. They could buy trinkets for themselves. They could support their family, and you know, at the end of the day while I think we've mentioned this yesterday while women didn't even have the right to marriage and couldn't control, you know, their own children are own their own children. They owned what they could produce in your own. I think you put it in stronger terms yesterday said their children could be bought and sold lots and sold. Yeah. And yet, you know, whatever they reaped unsold sold in their provision groans. They owned and they could sell and they could trade and they could buy things with. And so what I think is that if you were of mainstream traditional polite, colonial society, could you have stepped outside of the home and started a business and kept your maiden name and bought houses and traded and fought for your tavern license with you know, in nineteen twenty Jamaica..
