Why am I proud to be Guyanese.

 

Because I can go to a party and eat the foods of many different cultures and view all of it as MINE. In fact I told this to a white American, who boasted about all the ethnic foods that one can eat in NYC.

 

Yes he can, but can he claim these foods as an integral part of who he is, and how much does he know about the cultural contexts of these foods, given that he wasn't raised alongside those who cook it.

 

Pity that Ravi Dev, and the rest of the Indo KKK group are so longing for cultural "purity," so dismissive of the cultural diversity and continuums implied in creole cultures, and so insistent that Guyana has tribes which live in separate boxes, lacking any obligation beyond their tribal context.
