"I think that everybody should be able to have the Carnival that they want. That’s what I want for Carnival, for all of us."—Elisha Bartels
One of the biggest criticisms of the modern T&T Carnival has been the popularity of the bikini and beads type of mas. It has been called vulgar, unimaginative, and a sure sign of the degradation of the national festival.
These mas producers seem to forget that the road is for the"GENERAL" public, there are kids looking on at their X rated mas. Then there's the behavior that comes with it, pure decadence. People in authority has to look at the direction we are heading and do some serious soul searching...
Cecil: I could LIVE with ALL THE NAKEDNESS -- but "the behaviour that comes with it" is UNACCEPTABLE!!!
