Bahamian becomes American Citizen.

Nassau, Bahamas – If you read the Tribune page two on Friday, you would have noticed a story where a Bahamian took the oath of citizenship in the United States of America.

The young woman who became an American is, Magdala Destima. On August 5th  she took the oath, according to the Tribune, while in New York on the US Coast Guard Barque EAGLE.

What we found interesting was the fact that miles away in New York the Tribune could land in its pages a photo of a naturalization ceremony in the United States of America, but every Monday godsend, when a naturalization ceremony is taking place in the Bahamas, the cameraman of the Tribune cannot get there. Isn’t that interesting?

We ga put the Tribune on notice once and for all. Go to the Hawkins Hill Immigration office and show us who are becoming citizens of the Bahamas and then we ‘ga’ take ‘yall’ serious. What kind a game are yinner in the Wutless LAME-STREAM late again media playing with the Bahamian people?

NO DAMN SHAME!

  1. STOP BEING SMALL MINDED, NO OFFENSE TO THE PASSIVE ONES! AT LEAST SHE IS ABLE TO ABTAIN A RESPECTABLE JOB IN THE AMERICA, WITH ALL THE BENEFITS THAT COMES WITH IT. RATHER THAN BEING BORN HERE AND CONSTANTLY BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BECAUSE OF HER HAITIAN DECENT. I APPLAUD HER, AND HAITIANS ARE DOING JUST THAT -MOVING TO THE U.S AND LEAVING THIS SHIT HOLE YALL CALL HOME -BROUGHT HERE FROM SLAVERY AS IS ALL BLACKS. DONT LIKE TO HEAR THIS BUT IT TRUE. BY THE WAY, MONCUR, SYMONETTE, DELEVEAUX, DEVEAUX, DELVA, SIMMONS, JAMES, MARK, LAFLUER,CHARLES AND TOO MANY MORE TO MENTION ARE ALL “HAITIAN NAMES” TAKEN FROM FRENCH SLAVE MASTER. KNOW YOUR HISTORY.

  2. The young lady’s last name should not matter, the fact is she was born in the Bahamas that is why they say Bahamian. You have lots of titles that are originated from Haiti, but u never hear bout it. If she was representing the Bahamas, and was winning u would not be so critical, He name would not matter. The fact that she represented the Bahamas made the Bahamas proud would !!!

  4. Another great example of how we Bahamians like to misconstrue the truth and rile up people for the wrong reasons.

    Firstly the Tribune did not take the photo – any smart Bahamian could search Google and confirm that the picture is AP (Associated Press) content. Secondly a simple Google search would show that this young lady was highlighted in the story and MOST LIKELY because she is of Bahamian decent the Tribune reran the story.

    I know many Bahamians who seek US residency and if possible would jump at the chance of US Citizenship. I personally have a few family members who gave birth to their children in the US just so that their children could have US Citizenship. So why are we Bahamians so selfish and to not want to see Haitians go through OUR BAHAMIAN legal process to become Bahamian Citizens?

    I can never believe that GOD made Christian loving Bahamians only and left the Haitians and non-Bahamians to be classed as less than humans. Karma is so real and may God help us when the time comes for us to reap what we sow….

  5. come on media her nationality has everything to do wit it because she is of haitian decent & not bahamian like the topic stated,and by no way i’m discriminating against haitians i’m jus sayin shes not bahamain…i know my peoples & i know that last name is not bahamain…

  6. BP you are right in what you are saying.I am of haitian descent myself and i find it quite interesting that the Tribune would publish such a story.The name Destima is Hatian,so i dnt see how they can tout it as a Bahamian acheivement.No disrespect to myself or my people but it should not be so.Was she ever residing in the Bahamas.Who is she.What significant contributions has she made in the Bahamas while she was here.How did the Tribune get a hold of this story?Why publish this story?What about other Bahamians who have taken the oath in the US.Why not highlight them?

  7. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE NAME DESTIMA AS A BAHAMIAN SURNAME. THIS YOUNG LADY IS OF HAITIAN ORIGIN,SO PLEASE DO NOT INSULT THE ORIGINAL BAHAMIANS WITH THIS NONSENSE. WHO GIVES A RAT’S BEHIND. INFORM THE HAITIANS SO THAT THEY CAN ALL MOVE TO NEW YORK/US AND DO THE SAME

    • Come on spragga what does her nationality have to do with it? She is a child of GOD! What we want know is how is it hundreds are being naturalized here and not a press is covering those events?

      • Bahamas Press you can’t complain you got this on here and you can’t go up on hawkins hill and take pictures of the thing ya self so dont be putting the tribune down for not doing it… if you want people to know and no one else is doing it then you should do it yourself just my five cents… ☺☺☻☻

  8. BP, the Tribune and those related are highlighting this because this happened in the USA. It’s obvious that this lady is of Haitian decent. Why not highlight Haitians of Bahamian decent who are taking their oath here in the Bahamas and those who are making positive contributions to their country and not putting a claim on persons because of their affiliations to the US. How many times have you heard us claiming “Bahamianism” on superstars, atheletes or actors in the US who have never even made it public that they are of Bahamian heritage?

    • Let’s take the attack off the woman and her nationality for a moment, what I want to know is how is it they could find space all of a sudden for this Bahamian becoming a citizen in the US and cannot find pen to paper to report to the Bahamians people how every Monday, a ton of residents are being naturalized right here in the capital? WHAT KIND A GAME THEY PLAYING?
