BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — THE ENVIRONMENT and SOCIETY. YOU are aptly shaped by your environment…, by your society! If you are descendants of SLAVES who actually lived in the only recorded SLAVE SOCIETY known to the modern world (i.e., Barbados: the environment), you might have an ‘everything’ problem…. Barbadians, in many ways, are unique people.
Therefore, you must take a good, long look at your mental health. Every action you take must be done to promote human and social well being. But….but first, you must recognize and are willing to admit the conditions of whence you came. You must be willing to openly say that things are just not the way they should be. You must be willing to embrace change — to correct your value-system disorder.
With this in mind, know that your current political elites are not good for your health. Naked Departure
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Hi Naked, I completed the research and it is Cool Chick (not Star Chick) that closed down because them is in debt. Them run out of money. Cool Chick was own by Wendell Clarke’s brother who has fortunately died of a heart attack. He was just like Wendell Clarke — bad and wicked the same way and he died because of his wicked ways.
Wendell is saying that he would buy it and operate it and got two chicken places to sell his bad chickens. Some of the drivers from Cool Chick gone over to Star Chick to work there too and to help do his bad deeds as well. Wendell going to end up like his brother as well because he is wicked like him too; going to church on Sunday’s and doing nuff wrong to people and his workers.
He was in the paper 3 weeks ago talking about new trays to put his bad chickens in. If I was him I would never go in the papers at all — a wicked man he is he and that one call James Paul together in the paper talking about chicken wings that them want chickens wings to stop coming into Barbados, that them can supply chicken wings here for the people. That is a joke! Them can’t supply enough chicken wings for all the people in Barbados at all, who them trying to fool? Them is jokers!
James Paul and Wendell Clarke is DLP together so them will get away with anything in Barbados that is why Wendell does get away with so much wrong doings because the so-called DLP is backing him but one day SOON he will end up like his brother that did own Cool Chick. Two wicked people together should dead together. Anonymous

HAITI/CARIBBEAN (Naked Departure) — DISASTER CAPITALISM!! NO ONE really cares about Haiti. They talk about Haiti because they’re ashamed not to — how could you not talk about Haiti and all her recent disasters!
With Cholera surging and the smell of death flowing as the fragrance of the day, who’s going to go to Haiti and help them dig out? Or, are you only going to hand out some food and clothing and take photos? Then there’s the money to be made from disasters (charity/donations) and here comes the disaster capitalists a/k/a THIEVES.
Most of the money (99%) collected for Haiti won’t reach her (history is our greatest teacher). Most of what the radiothoners and other media outlets are doing is in essence to keep their brand relevant. They don’t care about Haiti. Look at the panel of people asking for money for Haiti — thieves, liars and big-time criminals! Even Haiti’s own could not be steadfast! Even Wyclef Jean’s Haiti Charity is now defunct after he, a fellow black man and himself a Haitian, mishandled $16M in donations. He screwed his own people!
The American Red Cross collected half a BILLION after the 2011 earthquake and built ONLY six houses!
Haiti is always going to be an accident waiting to happen and there are opportunists and disaster capitalists (THIEVES) always ready and waiting to take something from her.
Do you think Bajans, who think that the only good Guyanese (good hair and all) is a dead one, can ever love the dark-skin, nappy-hair, voodoo and blood ritual Haitian? And if you don’t love Haiti, why handle money for Haitians?
Wheel and come again! It’s all about the money and the Rotary Club of Barbados West has a pernicious criminal in its ranks! They, like Wyclef, the American Red Cross, Bush, Clinton, and all others are DISASTER CAPITALISTS!!!! Naked Departure
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — BELIEVE IT OR NOT, an unhealthy-looking Chief Medical Officer Dr Joy St. John is cautioning people that “the prevalence of diabetes in Barbados remains too high, with an estimated 25,000 Barbadians and residents diagnosed with diabetes” (that’s all?). Dr St John added that between 600 to 800 new cases were reported annually (is she part of this statistic?).
What is her medical status (yeah I know, it’s ‘private’)? Is she one to talk? How many laps can she do around the track? If she’s not healthy, should you listen to her talking down to you about your health (do as I say not as I do? you can only talk to slaves like that)? Is there no healthy-looking doctor who can recite that health speech/warning?
How do YOU Bajans not hold people accountable for the words leaving their mouths and their waking lives? You have pedophiles in your classrooms teaching and molesting your children and you do and say NOTHING. You have corrupt politicians/attorneys robbing YOU and their clients and you do and say NOTHING. You have to run men down for child support and you get pregnant AGAIN. You have a 5% minority heavily armed and running/privatizing things and you CAN’T do ANYTHING. And this paragraph can go on ad nauseam! What’s wrong with you people though? Can’t you see that humans don’t act so?
Double, bordering on triple, chinned St. John can’t talk to nobody about their health….not looking like that! C’mon man!!! What’s in her medical files? Naked Departure
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Naked, calls have been made to privatize state enterprises by those who seem ready to grab the power that lies in the control of such entities. By privatizing, it is understood that government relinquishes the control and operation of a state enterprise to a private enterprise. This is a denationalizing of an ASSET.
WILL OUR NATIONALITY BE ALLOWED TO ERODE? What worth have you without assets?
RECENT STATEMENTS made at the opening of International Business Week leaves one to wonder the thinking of such a strategic viewpoint and stance that leads to devolving, denationalizing and privatization. As party politics would have it, the DLP 2013 campaign was making claims that this was a BLP AGENDA yet today a DLP “stalwart” (in power) is making such a call which baffle the imagination and leaves one to wonder which side of the fence they really stand on.
The electorate certainly believed that they had the right mix of BOLD and IMAGINATIVE “wanna be politicians” to do the right thing by resolving, correcting, and implementing remedies and solutions
when challenges present themselves. The PRIVATE SECTOR is NO GREATER than Government, the same way one sees the private sector could produce opportunities likewise the GOVERNMENT CAN DO also and even better because of access.
Government as a Facilitator and Regulator is merely a cop-out of what the mandate of good governance requires. FACILITATION DEMANDS TRANSPARENCY, CORRUPTION looms but will have no escape, LOOPHOLES will be uncovered, JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED.
OPPORTUNITIES for citizens via FACILITATION whether from OFFSHORE or LOCAL companies whose objective is to acquire cheap labour and massive profits at the expense of our citizens ENERGY by strict rules and regulations of employment, POOR WAGES and SALARIES while REFUSING to entertain sound labour practices and union representation BUT RECEIVING many “perks” from their FACILITATORS. WHAT HELP are they to the country?
To consummate is bed talk, waiting on a cheque to consummate a deal sounds rather “Shakespeareish”.
RESPECT IS EARNED and NOT DUE. History has taught us a hard lesson, but a lesson well learnt, to be great is to serve and vis-a-vis….
Be responsible and belittle not those who have chosen you as representative and ambassador when delivering speeches.
A WORD TO THE WISE — To give away your control to another is to empower them and comes with a price. If all assets are sold off, what control have you? WHAT IF THE PRIVATE ENTERPRISE COLLAPSE?… Will your answer be… BAILOUT?
BARBADOS NATIONAL BANK…. GONE BARBADOS NATIONAL TERMINAL CO., GOING, BARBADOS WATER AUTHORITY…desal plants, SANITATION SERVICE AUTHORITY….private waste haulers.
TRINIDAD/CARIBBEAN (Naked Departure) — A VIDEO showing school children with a man was posted on Facebook to bring attention to truancy and maybe statutory rape. The man engaged the woman in a vulgar exchange, in which he threatened to rape her and her 12-year-old daughter, among other things.
Would he have made that threat were it a male/father holding the camera?
Clearly, there was no respect for the woman’s age, no regard for her concern about the illegal behavior in the neighboring house, and the girls in uniform were unperturbed throughout the entire exchange.
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Naked, I know about the abuse in question because I live up through the gap and the women are old ladies. Family members nowadays would just lock up the women in the house and leave, so the house is shut up and the gates locked and the old ladies in the house locked up.
But Naked, these women does look and act like they mad or retarded and them suppose to be from America. You hear them in there cursing and arguing with the old ladies when you pass. I feel sorry for the neighbors. They don’t even let the old woman walk around and get some air and they would be hitting the old lady because she does be screaming.
Everybody in Fairfield does hear how them does be getting on. I live behind the house and does hear them late hours cursing and carrying on. The police came and never came back. I would be so sorry if something happens to them because the neighbors don’t even pay them any mind anymore now because I hear they were accusing the neighbors of calling the police for them.
But Naked, I would like to get help for the old ladies though. One might got dementia or something, but it ain’t right they getting treat badly. Anonymous
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Hi Naked. Avery Hackett who is based in the USA New Jersey/New York is allegedly one of the big drug men operating between both countries. Avery also has the most lavish Crop over Band in Barbados called Krave.
He also is/was sole importer and distributor of an energy drink called Fireball in which containers he allegedly moved drugs to Barbados.
Not satisfied with that he also allegedly smuggled in Remy and other raw hair in suitcases with the aid of custom agents avoiding duties which he would bring through the Barbados Airport. His girlfriend would then sell on the local market.
Avery has also allegedly been heavily involved with selling cocaine moved from Barbados to the USA where he has been primarily based, allegedly.
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — KEANN BUTCHER-LEWIS — Naked, there are certain people who should stop trying to fool others that they are so cool when they really are deceitful. People who constantly talk their friends’ name. One such person is a common-class woman called Keann Butcher-Lewis who works at the Statistical Department and lives at no fixed place of abode.
You see she lived so many places that one would lose count. Her father that lives in Gall Hill, Christ Church, cannot put up with her party-girl behaviour and warned her to stay home and look after her young son but all that fell on deaf ears since she says she is an adult who can do as she pleases. Then there is her mother who she calls a “freak” because she has standards and does not like her low, trashy behaviour and also because she refuses to contribute financially while living under her roof. Then there is the grandmother who lived near Oistins, she could not stay there long since she could not get her own way. And then of course the different men she has slept at.
Keann, you are the most wu****ess, de*****able s****t I have ever met. There is no way you should be talking about other people’s lives when you are the one that the men does give all the S**s to till yuh belly hurt, slap around and then turn around and talk bout you. No wonder Nanton don’t support that child Azarique because he aint even sure it is his with all the man-hopping you do. You need to set an example for that child, how he could respect women especially when he sees the closest female in his life being a wh****?
Because you have an over-size a***** full of cellulite that does catch the men don’t mean they respect you, they just use you, in****ct you and dump you like the trash you are.
A fete caan miss you because it is there u try to sell yuhself to de men. You is a trouble maker but you mess with the right person this time. You are a disgrace to your mother and father and even though they don’t get along they both agree on one thing–that you need to stop embarrassing them. Oh, and don’t lemme gotta talk bout the video that went viral of you down at Reggae Pon de Beach years back making a spectacle of yourself wukking up on stage wid all your panty showing–it was most disgusting. You shoulda remember your mother would gotta face de public at school after that incident.

BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — KIMBERLY LAYNE — Good Morning Naked Departure. A few weeks ago there was an article about this individual on your website. Her name is actually Kimberly Layne. She works at Del Sol up by the airport.
Now the company that I work for is associated with Del Sol and that is how we met. We hooked up and she told me she is allergic to condoms and that there is nothing to worry about, so I went along with her story. The next day after we first did it… my p***s started to develop some painful sores. I panicked and immediately went to the doctor that same day. He diagnosed me with a serious case of Chlamydia and prescribed me with two ointments and antibacterial pills. This got me enraged with anger cause it was clear who I got it from.
I ended up going to one of her work colleagues I know personally and inquired further about her and the information I received was extremely shocking. Bottom line is she knows she has Chlamydia and refuses to tell anyone she sleeps with about it. She refuses to have protected sex which is resulting in hurting others. Barbadians need to be constantly warned about people like this, whether it’s a male or female, it doesn’t matter.
She will deny all of this, but Naked, I swear to God all that I said is true. Anonymous
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — LIVINGSTONE HOYTE is dead (October 13, 2016), but when he was young and very much alive, he was a horrible brother, father, partner in life and an incestuous/pedophile person at large. Livingstone Hoyte was a PREDATOR! (Ohhhhh, I can almost hear the outrage! But the outrage should NOT be at this eulogy/obituary, it should have been set in motion in his early life!)
When Naked Departure talks about rampant incest and there being a pedophile on every corner and in every home in Barbados….Livingstone Hoyte was one of them. The apple did not fall very far from the tree. In fact, this particular apple never fell, it was picked!
Livingstone Hoyte was a bastard child and the man alleged to be his father swiftly disowned him. BUT, since paternity tests back in the 1940’s was a search of physical features, Livingstone Hoyte was a carbon copy and the child of Cyril Washington. As is most times the case in Barbados, however, he was raised by a single mother. In other words, he raised himself.
As a particular, anonymous, child mother would testify, Livingstone Hoyte used to beat her and he never supported the children he had with her. He was an angry man. A true Bajan! He was the most promiscuous! Anonymous
Funerals are important and well-loved in Barbados (rum shops, as much as the undertakers, depend on them). So we are sure Livingstone Hoyte will get his due share of RIP’s and so on and so forth, as Bajans usher him out of this Hell and into ???? Heaven???
If Earth/Hell is a playground or, as some would say a classroom, Livingstone, you played a solid game! You stayed true to your DNA as the only little girls who got away from you were the ones who could run faster than you! Aging is a good thing for could you imagine hu-mans taking from that forbidden tree and living forever?!! God forbid!!
A fond farewell or a RIP??? We’ll wait on that. Let’s see what the *Akashic Records have to say about all that Livingstone did in the dark.
Sadly, Livingstone Hoyte is not remarkable as it relates to conditions of birth (in the 1940’s) and being born a (in Barbados) Barbadian. Better luck next time ‘Livie’. Naked Departure
*Akashic records are a compendium of thoughts, events, and emotions believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the astral plane.
The service of thanksgiving will be held at Western Light Church of the Nazarene on Thursday October 27th at 2:00pm. The internment will take place at Westbury Cemetery.

BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Hi Naked, I want to write about these persons to let the public know what’s going on about Andrew Maynard of the royal Barbados police force who is on a current rape charge for raping a 15-year-old Foundation School girl.
“Police constable, Andrew Maynard, of Browne’s Gap, Sargeants Village, Christ Church, appeared at the District “B” Boarded Hall Magistrates’ Court charged with rape and was granted bail of $7,500.”
Andrew had been involved with drugs and also is a very close associate of bounty in St Philip and they both been pushing drugs for YEARS in Barbados. Andrew is nothing but a pedophile scum of this earth what a shame! Especially on the royal Barbados police force not just his wife but a shame to the force.
Andrew’s involvement with this young school girl has caused society to lose all respect for him and his wife who are still together but hey let me tell u about her. She has been involved with one of the guys on a block called Spangler’s. I’m not calling his name but he has told everyone all about their dirty sodomous affair and what he did with her how much she likes taking it in the —– and drinking all of his —— is this a married woman here???
Marva Maynard works at the Queen Elizabeth hospital and Andrew and her both lives in St Patrick Christ Church when she was involved with her child father Shabba an employee of McEnearny who feels apparently he’s untouchable bad man in Bim but forgot we bleed the same blood and he drives taxi so easier for someone to set his bad a– up and out a bullet to the back of his head so jus bear in mind u driving taxi Shabba skull u are no bad man there are no real bad men down there in Barbados y’all come to the states with this bs you won’t last a day y’all are wanna be bad boys Shabba and Marva are dirty very much so and got a sin roaming the streets by the name of darmarko cooms who apparently is another wanna be bad boy who is walking exactly in his father shoes.

Marva I’m so disappointed in u I thought better of u even to stay with a pedophile u truly disappointed me. I am very honest I know u can do better that poor girl’s family needs justice and her mother is a very close friend of mine so I know everything that is currently going on and what y’all doing but thank God I do not live down there cause Barbados is full of a lot of pedophiles and not to mention when u raped that poor little girl Andrew you gave her an STD called trichomoniasis which he mother is still damn fighting to control since it was in late stages and was very hard to control so it kept re occurring
You are one nasty sob, a beast that’s what u are and I pray to god u get kids esp a girl child and pretty much the same happens to her for what you have done to that girl and yet still no justice has been served all of your sperms were in her when the DNA was done but you down there in Bim walking the streets like a bad cop.

Justice will be served one way or another you just wait and see y’all are something else you and ya wife nasty dogs how do you feel Andrew knowing you gave that girl trichomoniasis?? Knowing you were ill do you have a heart? Are you that cold hearted? Andrew Maynard well here’s what up I hope your blood turns cold while you lying in the streets waiting on two sons Funeral home to remove your body in a body bad.

THE WORLD in my KITCHEN (Naked Departure) – COCONUT BREAD for Champions. This recipe makes for a very heavy bread but it gives you great energy and keeps you very full. Bowel movement improvement, flattened tummy and overall healthy feel after a brutal work out is what we all hope for. And did I mention, it is extremely flavorful!
BLEND the four sticks of butter with two cups of boiling water (if the butter is hard), and the sugar. Blend until sugar is totally dissolved. MIX all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and add the butter mixture from the blender. MIX them all together and then add the flour (and baking powder) until the mixture comes together in a ball and does not stick to your hands. If mixture is sticking to your fingers, add more flour. SEPARATE into four or five breads and place in buttered and floured pans. BAKE at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes, depending on how brown you want your breads to be. Bon Appetit!
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Naked, Body Care in Sheraton is the worst. Derek Sealy the manager won’t stop messing with the women.
Right now this rasta girl Tara who works at Burger King and went school at the Garrison feels she owns the gym. She can only sit up front in spin classes, always have attitude cause she’s the big one… well for now, lol.
She carries back stories to the same Derek. She drives his car, her son calls him daddy and she won’t stop horning her child father Kirk Prescod who has 2 other boys. Kirk thought Tara was the one …but weight come off and a different Tara emerged ….
Tara goes to work and tells the supervisors how her child sick so she can come in a gym. The people in the gym would like Derek to stop being so unprofessional and realize he’s running a business. Every year people leaving cause they are fed up with his attitude and how he treats his members.
We are hoping that the owners in the UK will see this post and get rid of Derek Sealy. Clearly this is not how a business should be operated. Anonymous
BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — WHEN real history is taught, people will come to see that it was WHITE TRASH who conquered many regions of the world. They’ve given themselves honourable titles, but they were nothing more than DISEASED CRIMINALS who considered themselves conquerors. They saw all, and I mean EVERYONE who did not look like them, as LABOURERS.
MARIANA ALFONSO. When you hear WHITE TRASH using that term/word “LABOUR” or “LABOURERS“, what they are referring to is: your designation as a SLAVE. You are not one of them and you are only tolerated to build, to service, to (re)produce…. You are a LABOURER.
An ATTACK ON BARBADOS’ EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM was long overdue. Yes indeed, it would be disingenuous to come here and say there aren’t serious problems with the educational system in Barbados as headed by a Ministry filled with Pedophiles. Barbadians even have a “labour” department. They didn’t fall far from their colonial master’s tree. This we all know. But what you MUST watch is WHITE TRASH talking! WHITE TRASH is only important to sub humans. Only a sub-human would allow WHITE TRASH to grade them.
Do you recognize the WHITE TRASH in your neighborhoods, in your country, in your place(s) of business? THIS IS THE TYPE OF EDUCATION YOU NEED. When you have this education and this clear reckoning, you won’t allow WHITE TRASH to utter verbal insults at you as a nation and/or as an individual. When you make WHITE TRASH nervous, they come out in numbers with GUNS. You have to match them…gun for gun…. You’ve already been products of their WHITE TRASH enslavement and brutality. Time to set your own destiny in motion.
“This is an issue because it limits the possibilities these kids have when they enter the labour force…”
Barbados’ educational system sucks to high heaven, but why do you need WHITE TRASH to tell you this? Wake up Barbados! Please know you are the most arrogantly illiterate people in the WORLD, and only you have the power to fix/change it!
First step: STOP defiling your women and your children! Naked Departure
THE STORY: Barbados’ education system has come for severe criticism from a senior official of the Inter American DevelopmentBank (IDB), who has warned that even though the island is considered a leader in Latin America and the Caribbean, its overall level of learning is still way below par. Dr Mariana Alfonso, a Senior Education Specialist at the IDB, bases her assessment on studies done between 1999 and 2012, which she said uncovered a number of worrying results. For one, the research shows that many school leavers cannot even meet the basic requirement of four Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) passes for entry into the public service. “Of the students who actually take that exam, 50 per cent obtain far more CSEC passes, but only after multiple sittings,” Alphonso pointed out. In fact, she said “only 6.1 per cent of the students in Barbados get the four passes in the first sitting of the exam”. “This is an issue because it limits the possibilities these kids have when they enter the labour force, not having so many passes,” the IDB official said in an address to this week’s Fifth International Conference on Higher Education. The research also showed that nearly a quarter or “23 per cent of all students in Barbados don’t get the certificate because they don’t complete [or] do that final examination”. “They’ve been through the system, but they don’t have that certificate that will allow them to go into the workforce,” Alphonso stressed. She also raised concern that the Caribbean and Latin America was the region with the largest learning gaps, while pointing out that children from wealthy families were learning a lot more than those from lower socio-economic families. This, she said, was also reflected in the performances of students in the Secondary School Entrance Examination (SSEE), otherwise referred to as the Common Entrance exam. She also drew a link between the Common Entrance and Caribbean Examination Council results, pointing out that 12 of Barbados’ secondary schools which were continuously showing weak CXC performances received the lower scoring students in the SSEE. “So you have a segregated system by assigning the students who have higher test scores to the better performing schools. “It is an assignment mechanism that maintains inequality, and maintains that performance gap that is observed at the entrance in the [secondary] system,” Alfonso argued. She said while the Ministry of Education was currently seeking grants and other assistance for the 12 underperforming schools, “there is a lot of work to be done here”. The IDB official went on to show that the problem was not only one of poor education, but also a lack of preparation for entry into the workforce. “We’re seeing that students are not necessarily well prepared to support an economy that is based on knowledge and innovation, because most of the [CXC] passes are not done on, for example in science and technology. There is still a large share of students who are doing, for example, electronic document preparation, office administration,” she said. Alfonso, who has a PhD in Education, also said, based on a 2012 survey, Barbadian employers shared the same complaint as their Latin American counterparts that school leavers lacked necessary soft skills – “the ability to work with other people, the ability to lead, to think critically, to respect authority, to be punctual to work, to be on time for a meeting”. She also highlighted the issue of gender in education, saying exam subject choices were still largely influenced by traditional gender concepts with women tending to focus more in areas of office administration, electric document processing. “It is like there is still a lot of choices going on in schools that perpetrate gender roles,” Alfonso said, adding that “more could be done to have more women work on science and technology”. The IDB official also touched on the issue of spending on education, while noting that this rose from 4.2 per cent of GDP to 5.8 per cent in 2012, which she said was above the average for some rich, developed countries which make up the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Such spending, she said, was also above the average for Latin America and the Caribbean. However, despite this financial effort, the IDB researcher said per person spending was still low when compared to other zones with high education performers. “Not only student performance is low, but also students are not learning what is needed for them to be productive members of society in the 21st century,” she said, while stressing that though Barbados leads the region in terms of the performance in CSEC, learning was still low. “Even though in some cases it has improved recently, 61 per cent of students in Barbados achieve pass grades in Mathematics, and in the case of Trinidad, that is 51 per cent, so we definitely have a problem with education quality.”
