You must really be deaf as in fact the very justification by the PPP for excluding blacks was because of Burnham. Even ordinary black professionals seeking employment were told "is not Burnham time now".
The fact remains is that Indo Guyanese are ethnically exclusive in their behavior and that disturbs other Guyanese and drives them into their own ethnic panic as they fear that if an Indian dominates anything this will lead to their exclusion, or as many said when the PPP lost in 2015 (thank god its the end of the slow holocaust).
This wasn't only about Jagdeo and the PPP. This was about how the Indo dominated private companies treated non Indians.
You can deny this as you will but this indeed is a fact. I saw with my own eyes on a visit to Guyana where two minibuses stop. An EMPTY one with a black driver and a conductor stopped first and then a FULL minibus with an Indian driver and conductor (and many black passengers). The Indians decided to squeeze into the full bus and ignore the empty one and one can only assume that the reasons were racial.
Similarly airport taxi drivers indicate that Indians will pass them by at the airport looking for an Indian taxi driver and only come back to them when they cannot find any. A black passenger will jump in the first decent taxi that they see, regardless of the ethnicity of the driver.
This is why the vast majority of Guyanese of African and mixed ancestry are terrified of Indian dominated leadership.
