“What kind of signal does that send about Jamaica to the outside world?”
‘Youths Are Suffering’ is a personal take on the 1976 classic ‘Too Much Religion’ by Baba Leslie and Jerry Harris. Thru the words of John Shelby Spong, the late Christopher Hitchens, various courageous activists and refugees, and the implacable Stephen Sackur masterfully cornering Jamaica’s former Prime Minister Bruce Golding, the veil of hypocrisy around the white elephant in the room is torn in two. Because there can not be ‘one love’ without true respect for human rights. A simple message, delivered here with a mid-seventies cut by Jerry Harris outta Wackie’s featuring in-house hornsman Baba Leslie.
