Mr T

I have to apologize to Mr. T on the way I spoke of the Windrush incidents. This man Morgan's story really troubled me.  Prashad has both an American and a Canadian passport and he would not want either of them being seized because he was born in Guyana

Apologies accepted.

I am quite troubled however that it's 99.9% black West Indians who have been making the Windrush news. I haven't seen a single other race mentioned or shown. Even when I went to sort my papers out I was the only non-black person from the West Indies in a room of 200 or more. I don't know the reasons for that, but it was an unavoidable observation.

Interesting.  Do you have an Indian name?

No. My surname is taken from the British aristocracy side of the family. Not that I am an aristocrat, but my forefathers who came to British Guiana centuries ago to settle down and have a plantation were aristocrats.

T, do you flaunt all your wealth around your neck like Mr. T? 

 

 

I learnt one thing from living in Guyana: don't flaunt your wealth. My eldest son has taken after me. He never posts pictures of himself driving an Aston Martin or high end Merc, or going on holidays with his cousin in their private jet. It only attracts the wrong impression.
