Bahamas Issues Travel Advisory: "Avoid Interaction With US Policemen"
You know it's bad when... The Bahamas government Friday is urging nationals to exercise caution if they intend on travelling to the United States following the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday night.
Over 90 percent of residents in the Bahamas are black, and Monday is a national holiday - commemorating its 43rd anniversary of political independence from Britain - which, as WaPo notes,means some will travel north from the archipelago to vacation in the United States.
And so, it apperars the Bahamian government is taking a page out of the US government foreign policy play book (having recently advised travelers to avoid repressive regimes such as Laos and Nicaragua - beware of secutiy and street demonstrations).
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it had taken note of the recent tensions in some American cities over shootings of young Black males by policemen.
