Don't glorified the presence of blacks in your life when you don't know the religious discrimination against Indians.
First, Hindus and Muslims were not allowed into the nursing and teaching profession unless they convert into Christianity. All the schools were affiliated with the Church, Anglican. ROMAN catholic, Church of Scotland. The Red Cross and the Salvation Army were influential in the training of nurses.
Look and see how many Indians carry English names, that was their passport to get Civil Service jobs, obviously after the emancipation of slaves the blacks were all converted into Christianity.
Many Indians living in NA would give their children English names so that can easily be accepted in society.
Bro, your ppl came from India who were influenced by Christianity. Doan fool yourself that them youngmen were illiterate. In India, the Civil Service were mainly Brahmins, they din convert. Conversions in Guyana were not demanded. The church trained Africans to teach the African children. Indians and Putagees just happen to fall into the systtem. Schools were created for the Africans. The Putagees started QC to have an edge over the Blacks. Indians edge over Africans were to convert and compete for their guranteed jobs. And in every facet of public service.
