Jagdeo should apologize as he used the B word. How would Indians react if Granger or Harmon used the “coolie” term in reference to Indians?
That word used in our house of assembly by Carl Greenidge, who said that cane-cutters are Indian problem. That was said to the PPP during a debate when the PNC was against it. That is a clear reference to a racist slur towards coolie. Today, Granger put 10,000 coolies on the breadline and replaced Indians with blacks in government ministries. The PNC doesn't' have to say it, they demonstrated coolie-bias over and over again. Isn't that enough? Coolie people blind and deaf when it comes to dealing with the PNC.
And of course you will never say that the PPP was anti black when they left 80% of the bauxite workers on the breadline.
In fact what is interesting is that a higher % of sugar workers are black than bauxite workers were Indian so one can more readily impute a racist motive for the PPP's behavior.
And to even add to the injury all the bauxite workers received was cheaper electricity than that paid by the rest of the country. When the PPP wanted to remove that and they protested agents of the gov't shot those people in cold blood. The PPP never apologized to Linden for that event!
