British Guiana

And here is the difference.  You go to any forum consisting of Guyanese and we are very vocal about the state of the nation.  Very vocal about the sad delivery of gov't services.  We dont tolerate what we once did.

We sang lustily "we Britons will never be slaves". Ask Guyanese why they didn't vote yesterday and they will suck their teeth and discuss how corrupt the nation is. Yes we have progressed.  At least we know that this is wrong. Now we need to figure out how to change it.

Suh we sit around and schuppps we teeth and "discuss" corruption. And this is the progress we made in 50+ years of independence, fully acceptable to you. Ok bai, I done.

Good luck with that "now we need to figure out how to change it" thingie. Dat shouldn't be a problem. We probably have the most "political scientists" per capita in the world so dat shouldn't be a problem. Just give it another 100 years when dem done schupsin dem teeth and "discussing" corruption.

The brits are gone but the rise of a new suzerain/serf class arisen. Not a damn thing has changed. We are still averaging 3600 a year despite massive wealth being extracted from the country by foreigners with the aid of a rent seeking class. For this to happen it means the people in general accept the authoritarianism with which they have been ruled since the brits left.

For an autocrat to emerge there must be willing supplicant class. This class often feeds the autocracy as we see with their sheeplike following along ethnic lines rather than by thinking and these low level clerks of this class can be monsters themselves with the little authority given them. One is reminded by the phrase they "tyranny of the clerk" and everyone here knows what it is. 

Exactly.

Guana, calling an Indo a Dalit is the same as addressing an Afro person with the racist N word. Shame on you !!!!!!!!!!

Stop talking scheizer!  Dalits/OBCs are official groups in India protected by the "reservation" (affirmative action) law.  They hold annual events in India pushing for rights and have their symbol and flag they carry around to ID themselves!

Why bother answering that woefully ignorant, uneducated, bigoted DUNCE who is absent the faculties and abilities necessary for good conversation? I ignore him now. There is nothing in that big vacuous head of his other than his perverted view of the world that he obtained compliments of his bramananananannananaa "standards" with which he was raised. 

Hysterical, woman like screaming about everything is his forte. I bet what you posted above is news to the fool.

Just like most people all over the world.  Look at the USA with its Trump and Brazil with Bolsonaro.  Do you think that the average Brit has input into whatever emerges from Brexit.

No we schupps our teeth and "discuss".  I dont know if you live in NYC but if you do this is ground zero for that. How many NYers like the gov't that they have?  How many even bother to vote?

Datt Banna out of touch and plain silly.  He has no clue.  Just the other day he asking why kids are barefoot in Guyana!

The Indian govt has instituted verification checks for people claiming Dalit/OBC status.  Just like Elizabeth Warren, they are using it to get placement and funding into universities.  I remember some people I worked with said they wish they could claim it to get their kids into university under Revervation!
