Description

To be, or not to be a pirate? This week, that is the question. Hold fast, mateys! We have stories about both historical and modern-day swashbucklers who loot, pillage, and question their choices.

This British twat is so infuriating. Postcolinalist attitude at its worst. First the British destroy the area with colonialism, then their heirs sail around its waters as if the land still belongs to them and finally they go about accusing the local people who actually want to help them of thievery. Barring any big surprise later in the report, T.I. does sound credible to me. Very good, multiperspective reporting, anyway.
