This was in 2000
Under the PPP it was exposed that almost none of those running the public corporations were black. When asked to explain why almost all were headed by Indians Luncheon couldn't answer.
Why don't you answer.
My 20k referred to those working in the ministries and in the social services. Regional administration varies as this isn't all under the control of the central gov't. Are the regions controlled by the PPP to be included in what is going on now? Or did G/T City Council not have the ability to hire under the PPP regime?
So the 20k refers to the ministries and to the disciplined and social services.
So let us discuss those who you mention. Are you suggesting that all of those mega buildings that we see sprouting all over G/T are owned by these FEW corporations? Please don't tell me that you think that "Singh's Roti shop" and "Persaud's Grocery" has a need to erect all of those huge structures. Continue and I will have to believe the tale that these are all owned by drug dealers.
Now the example I gave of an Indian manager hiring only 5 blacks out of a total 30 hires was AINLIM. Not Indian owned but the person doing the hiring was an Indian. Given that the G/T area is less than 30% Indian I can only wonder how he can hire a batch of workers 80% being Indian.
At the end of the day you really don't want a discussion of the race problem in Guyana. But that is OK. Guyana will continue to be plagued by ethnic distrust and insecurity and we will continue to be the laughing stock of the rest of the Caribbean. So bad that after the earthquake when Jagdeo offered to take in a few Haitians they screamed loudly "NO". I guess going to the country only one step up from them didn't make sense when The Bahamas is just next door.
