When Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu worked towards justice, they did so with a forgiving heart for those who had learned and grown during the end of a terrible era of hate and racism in South Africa. I am on their team

Today is Ruby Bridges Day, to commemorate a brave little girl's entry into an all-white school on November 14, 1960. As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled. Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Mrs. Henry taught her alone, "as if she were teaching a whole class." Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her;[7] because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, only allowed Ruby to eat food that she brought from home. Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Bridges said "scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us." At her mother's suggestion, Bridges began to pray on the way to school, which she found provided protection from the comments yelled at her on the daily walks. - @[144797732198536:274:Free Range Learning]

Both of these men were avowed communists. That doesn't take away from their accomplishments but people should be careful not to let the halo effect blind them to the person as a whole.

Black History Month. The KKK could not extinguish the fervor for equal rights and protection under the law. They tried.

I try to stay out of these things, but the statement above is horrendously offensive. I also have declined to mention this, but it is comments like this that have stopped the majority of contributors to this message board from posting here anymore. We, sadly, have had clients mention their concerns about coming here after reading this board and messages such as that above from people who don't live here, don't work here and who seem to have nothing better to do but to make it difficult for businesses on the island by making it look like a pit of hatred, bigotry and obsessed with USA politics. It's so sad as I've met so many wonderful people and made lifelong friends through this message board, but the atmosphere has become so toxic, bigoted, bullying and unpleasant that it not only does Ambergris Caye and Belize a huge disservice but it has destroyed what once was a wonderful community of people connected by their love of Ambergris Caye. This makes me so very sad.
