LATER DISRESPECTS AND CALL HIM "WAISTE MAN"
The last presidential visit to Jamaica was by Ronald Reagan on April 8, 1982.
Thirty-Three (33) years later, the island of Jamaica rolled out the red carpet for a visit by the first African American sitting US president, Barrack Obama.
The president of the United States of America, Barrack Obama, arrived at the Norman Manley International airport in Kingston, Jamaica on April 8, 2015. A date similar to that of the former president, Ronald Reagan.
The visit of the 44th and current president of the United States of America, Barrack Obama, sparked and fueled the attention of the entire nation of Kingston, Jamaica.
The spirits of many were lifted, and lots of positivity surrounded the arrival of president Barrack Obama as well as his arrival stirred a lot of controversial topics and frenzy which were expressed through social internet mediums.
Local and International reggae artist, Jamar Rolando McNaughton Jr, prevalently known as Chronixx expressed his repulsion when he posted on his official Instagram page, a portrait of the Jamaican national hero, and political leader, Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr. The image was caption in Chronixx own words “This man…Still have a criminal record in The United States and we glorifying some waste man! This man was hunted and imprisoned by our Jamaican government…who some years later paved a peaceful and safe path for the U.S. President to address us ..a “race of good for nothings”!!! That’s why black faces don’t mean anything to Rasta anymore”
It is believed that the reggae sensation, Chronixx expected that the prime minister of Jamaica, Portia Simpson Miller would have capitalized on the opportunity of U.S President Barrack Obama’s visit to Jamaica to re-sight and pardon Marcus Garvey US custody in the year 1923 and to clear his name at home in Jamaica.
Marcus Garvey’s binder is registered in the FBI Records Vault.
Marcus Mosiah Garvey, Jr. is a Jamaican born immigrant, who was a founder and staunch proponent of the Black Nationalist movement. In the aftermath of World War I, the FBI examined Garvey’s activities, looking to extradite him as an undesirable alien. Marcus Garvey was convicted in 1922 on a mail fraud charge in connection with some of business and organizational activities in which he was involved. Garvey’s sentence was later commuted by President Coolidge.
