Unfortunately, future generations of Virgin Islanders are just standing around and letting incompetence shape their future. A case can be made for any of the various definitions of "Native". Why single out anyone group of natives that arrived after the nomadic Indians? We must engage all our citizens to contribute to our society, just like the "motto states", United in Pride and Hope.
What the VI needs is change, change that only can come from engaging the future generations now.
