You are lucky the blacks do not have to work for the Chinese!!
Funny that you raise this because it was YOUR Jagdeo who screamed that Guyanese were too lazy to build the Marriott and so a 100% Chinese workforce was used.
You know that Indians are very involved in construction so it wasn't just blacks that he was indicting.
Jagdeo is a grifter. He engaged a nation that lives by cheating others. The Chinese have done what Jagdeo accepted as normal everywhere on the planet.
Jagdeo was sufficiently corrupt to accept their devils bargain because they know he wanted access to graft. His greed does not condemn the rest of us to bear the penalty for his sins.
We need governments that does not get sucked into these kinds of deals. Granger did not fall for it wholesale but there are signs his regime was suspect to the same lures. Only a government with checks and balance can save us here and that is what is lacking. It will not come by race blaming.
The accepting the broadband deal reeks of Chinese influence for ulterior motive. We will not win here. They will have a large vacuum on our data. Plus, the loan could have been taken from the Islamic bank and we hire Cisco and not offend the Americans.
