I never made any equivalence between the cultures. I dont care. I never analyze them except to disabuse people of nonsensical beliefs.
We debated this clannish crap for 28 pages back in 2007 and did not get anywhere. I do not care to repeat the experience.
People operate within the cultural context that they were raised. Whereas a discussion of Jamaica's political woes can be raised without reference to this Guyana, which consists of two radically different cultures, it cannot be ignored.
I repeat. Putting a warring couple in a fancy house doesnt mean that their marriage will work. Guyana has a warring couple. They dont understand each other because of how they think, and until they begin to understand each other they will fight. When they have to listen to each other than we see progress.
If an Indian sees a black man and refuses to hire him because he thinks that he is lazy and then the black man looks back and sees that he hired a less qualified Indian you can have all the constitution that you wish but we will still have a problem. When that black man gets power he will direct it to thwart the Indian, and given Guyana's history that power will be located within the public sector and blacks will fight like hell to preserve this zone of power.
