    When will this foreign, black, recolonization of Belize end? Barrow is in hog’s heaven now; he has arrived. Belize City is the black enclave that secede from the rest of the country. It is irrational to keep bringing these Caribbean and African jurists to Belize to adjudicate cases here when we have our own home grown jurists. What gives? Just Barrow’s racism?

    This person better not cross Ali.
    The purpose of Belizean courts is rubber stamping Ali’s whims.
    Then everything will be happy and in order.

    Unfortunately, this is not a happy event, because a Belizean was not hired for this position.
