Prez laments T&T’s widening racism

President George Maxwell Richards is lamenting the widening racial divide in T&T. He made the comment while delivering the feature address at the 20th annual dinner and cultural programme hosted by the Hindi Nidhi Foundation of T&T at the Hindu Credit Union’s Freeport convention centre on Saturday night.

Richards said T&T’s diversity had not yet been confronted with a view to finding solutions.
“I perceive, instead, a willingness, for whatever reason, to consolidate lines of demarcation that proscribe reaching out beyond entrenched positions, even where reason signals otherwise,” he said.

“In other words, partisan approaches, based principally on race, seem to be in the ascendancy on both sides of the divide. This is not a good thing.

“In my capacity as President, I am invited to many organisations in many parts of the country and, even allowing for occasions that will, of necessity, bring together distinctive groups, it is as though I am living in two countries.”

He said T&T’s survival and growth as a democratic and free nation demanded that something be done to halt the fragmentation “that is visible to those who have eyes to see.”

Richards went on to quote Mahatma Gandhi: “If you want real freedom, you will have to come together, and such a coming together will create true democracy, the like of which has not so far been witnessed or attempted.”

He said the wisdom of the Indian leader could be applied locally, although Gandhi’s India at that time and present-day T&T were different.

Richards said citizens had also failed to grasp the importance of culture as “a very necessary ingredient in the growth of any country.”

He said citizens took too narrow a view of culture, not considering all of its dimensions.
“We say, somewhat glibly, I suspect, that we are a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic country, but do not appreciate the significance and advantage of it to the degree that we ought.

“David Rudder has celebrated in song the meeting of two cultures in T&T and we have Mungal Patasar’s Pantar making their own statement through the mix of instruments and members that make up the band.

You know what ah doh understand bout all these fockin niggas. Why d mudder cont dey doh go dong Laventille and tell all them niggas that it have ah fockin racial divide in the country and dat niggas must take an example from fockin Indian people and become more productive to society.

Learn from fockin Indian people what it is like to sacrifice and send dey children wid plantain and roti to fockin learn something in school and get degree and become profesionals and so they can earn and have what they want. Tell the niggas to stop robbin and kidnappin Indians because they wok for what they have, it didnt arrive jus so. And they have that right to enjoy what they work for. And if they feel to drve ah mudder cont BMW, they have that right. Fock man.

Why these stinkin conts does only come to Indian functions and celebrations and go to Indian areas to tell fockin Indians that it have racial divide.

Max should tell he godfather Manning who make him President to tell he fockin monkeys in Balisier House to stop targetting Indian people and to create a society based on merit. Not Niggertocracy!

And then we will have no partisan approach.

Oh by the way, fock Mungal and Rudder. Dem fockers like dem and the Shiv Shakti Dance Group, Heeralal Rampartap, Massive and Rickki Jai only lookin to full dey pockets. And in order to achieve that, they have to lick nigga bottom.

Hmm....and we wonder why Trindad has racial divide. Maybe if people like you started respecting and treating Africans better, this would end the racial divide. The artistes you mentioned are some of the best that we have. Respect their right to support who they want to. Not everything is about money. Stop being narrow minded.

I drop a leave a response when I like a article on a blog or if I have something to valuable to contribute
to the discussion. It's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the post I read. And after this post "Prez laments T&T's widening racism". I was excited enough to drop a thought :-) I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these remarks appear as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you list all of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Any suggestions?

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I
think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
