they, and sadly many other Indos who aren't necessarily bigots, see themselves as Indians born in Guyana, so see no reason to support any Guyanese endeavor unless it is under Indian leadership.  Some even describe themselves as being on a sojourn from India, with a mere stop off in Guyana enroute to North America.

If the PPP was in power, even if they bad talked Jagdeo Afro Guyanese would have seen it as their duty as a Guyanese and would have demanded inclusion if there was any attempt to exclude.  They see themselves as Guyanese who happen to be black and are almost always ambivalent about Africa.

You are the worse bigot here.  IndoG affinity for Indian culture has a lot to do with bollywood movies and religious traditions which sustained the connection well past a century after indentureship.  Meanwhile you seem to have forgotten Forbes and the dashiki days. Maybe you too have a dashiki from pnc days in your wardrobe hidden away. I don't blame Afros for not holding on to their African root, they converted to Christianity en masse, severing any religious connection to the motherland. In addition, who would want affinity to a continent where you see starving people daily on TV begging for money, dictators and civil wars.
