While there were and are black farmers they are outnumbered by Indians, so the encouraging people to buy local food and not imported would have benefitted Indians.
The part that Indians screamed "black man a kill ahbie" was the banning of the flour, but when last I checked all Guyanese used tons of flour, maybe even too much of it. So how were blacks not also punished when they couldn't buy bread, or (yes) a puri, which was the cheapest lunch available at the time?
Me na buy dat. Yuh gat to compare peopkle with dem percent of population. Yuh gat as much small and medium black former like coolie farmer. Now meh believe yuh gat Indians dominate in rice. Dat was for export to bring in he hard wite man money. In essequibo one of de biggest rice farmer is a blackman. Hey hey hey.
