    Our places dont look bad. It is the people they have leading some of these departments that have no respect or proper leadership in them.

      Another very ignorant comment that brings up or entwines racism in everything. This visit has nothing to do with black or white, it has to do with the Queen’s Jubilee. He just happens to be white, as is most people from the U.K. People like you have a very narrow view on life. If a head of state from an African country came, he would be greeted just as good. The fact that we are a B.T.O, however, changes things a little where this visit is something a little more than just a formal greeting.

          Doesn’t make sense to argue on here. Look up what a British Overseas Territory is and you can come when you’ve educated yourself on the link between the U.K and us.

            Some of them too pretentious, they have no respect for the Queen or our status as a British Overseas Territory, they only come out bowing because it was a photo opp for them. Too pretentious and I know what I am talking about.

      He’s right, if a black leader with the same significance came here he would’ve never been treated that way.

      Look, the reality is we are a colony/ british overseas territory so just as the British have to deal with these types of visits, we have to also do it. In this case you comments are misguided and unnecessary. If President Obama or Nelson Mandela came you know they would get red carpet treatment too. Be fair. PS. if you have such a problem with it you should be speaking out on the issue of colonialism.

      Utter nonsense. It is nothing to do with slavery etc. This woman, the Queen celebrates 60 years of giving her life to the service of her subjects. I don’t mean her 9 to 5, I mean her LIFE. She never asked for it, and in fact was devastated when her Uncle abandoned the throne and her father was forced to ascend the throne. But she did what she had to do for DUTY, something I don’t think many posting on here know much about, which is a pity.

      This white man happens to be her cousin, and she sent him here to extend to us her best wishes and to teceive our best wishes to her on her 60 years of service. At 85, I don’t think she can be expected to visit every country, so she sends her children, grandchildren, cousins, whoever.

      Now can we show a little class here? Act civilized? Thanks.

      Is your problem that he is white or that you are black? If you paid attention, you would see that white people also bow to royalty.

        I have no problem with the white people bowing to there so call royalty. That’s their business, but knowing our history as black people this is totally retarded. There are white people in England who don’t agree with this nonsense about royalty. so pleeeeeze do your research.
