In Response To: Plight of Black people (Newsday)
Herein is the heart of your problem with the world the way it is - you wrote "but they first have to recognize that a serious debt is owed to blacks for what post-Independence Black Governments have failed to do as representatives who were elected to represent the interests of all citizens (many black politicians are still today oblivious to the problem seen by Mr Lok Jack — such is the degree of black under representation)"
Poor, poor Afro-trinis. If only everybody could understand the debt that is owed to them for being under-represented, underpaid, under blah blah blah. Without realizing it you basically made the observation that the more AfroTrinis are in power the more like Africa this place is becoming. In Trini terms you are 'over-smart' Mr. Reynald and that my friend is the gauntlet being thrown in your face. By the way, referring to representatives who were elected to represent is redundant and verbose. Get to the point. I bet my bottom dollar you are black with a doctorate degree.
