"My country as far as I know is a class-free country,the idea of first and second-class only exist in the minds of a few bigots, but if given their way they will soon convince our people that we should devide ourselves by creating class division,then when you add an ethnic twist to it you will then sow the seeds of racial division, and thus far they have not quite succeeded, but like hell they should be given credit for trying, it is up to us to ensure they do not succeed."
Firstly, I have to disagree with your basic assumption, and a rather naive one at that, that this is a class free society. I'm sure that the entire prison population, the people of Laventille, Morvant and other poverty strickent areas of Trinidad as well as those who occupy the upper echelons of society would disagree also.
Secondly, where have you been livin fella?
Ethnic division has existed in this country as long as there has been different ethnic groups. It's as natural as night and day. That's humanity for you. There is nothing special about this land that makes it's citizens superior to others and above prejudice. Get real.
Would you deny that the two major races vote for two ethnic parties and have been doing so for many decades now?
And guess what. There is one of these two that has dominated the scene for quite some time, said dominance coming to an end in 1986. A mere 16 years ago. Is it any coincidence that the military and Police and public service is dominated by one race? Are you also going to pretend that this is not so?
Is your denial of this merely a defence of the status quo? Do you in fact like it so?
