Parental censorship is required

THE EDITOR: I agree with a “Letter to the Editor” in your newspaper of Friday August 3, that “Nicki Minaj showcased TT well.” I also read that the video received 1.3 million views in just one day. How many of those viewers were children? In Trinidad and Tobago, our laws define children as anyone 18 years and under. I looked at the video and I’m convinced that the video is too explicit. The writer of the letter says “the gyrating bodies — encompassing what the world knows too well, that sex indeed sells a product.”
In a discussion with my niece Aanya, my consultant on youth affairs and just out of “childhood,” she was very clear, and I quote: “I find the video to be misleading about the true essence of Carnival. It is just showcasing what Carnival has become, ie beads, feathers, thongs and excessive and unnecessary nudity. I saw that they “chook” in pieces of the violent fire- breathers and jambolassies. I guess they only thought to put in the characters that were appealing and conducive to the name of the song. It was a little on the raunchy side with a lot of grinding and gyrations.
