You claim that my article is garbage, but you failed to actually challenge the substance of the article, which specifically addressed the claim that Caribbean people rejected Garvey and that Garvey was forced to leave the Caribbean and go to America to find support. When you say that Jamaicans didn’t receive Garvey at first your merely reinforce the need to have articles like this. Garvey established the UNIA in Jamaica first before going to America. If Jamaicans didn’t receive him at first then how was he able to operate the UNIA for several years in Jamaica before going to America. Moreover, why did Garvey plan to return to Jamaica if he wasn’t received there at first? Moreover, Malcolm’s name was not mentioned anywhere in my article, so you mentioning Malcolm in your response is a bit irrelevant.

If you are going to make allegations that my article is garbage, the least you can do is try to refute it with actually facts instead of repeating more false information and mentioning points which are irrelevant to the point of the article.
