I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE.

  1. Unquestionably he was killed. By the CIA – Really??!? Wow…

    First of all, Jimi was the Mozart of our time, plain & simple. Speak to any Great musician, see what they tell you.

    Second, Jimi was in the Airborne Division in the Vietnam War with an Honorable Discharge from an injury from a night jump.

    Jimi Hendrix experienced the war up close & personal first hand. How many of you would do what he did for his country in the middle of a horrendous war – None.

    His version of the SSB emanated from His Experience. And if you missed it – you just weren’t bright enough to 1) Understand it; 2) Enjoy it!!

    It’s Ok, 1,000 years from now they will still be Enjoying it!! 🙂
