I hope decent Blacks (like Caribj) relegate her and her thinking to the dustbins!
Am I still "decent" when I call Jagdeo a fouled mouth anti black bigoted monster?
Jagdeo was explicitly racist. Volda merely partisan as an Indian PNC mayor of the town where 1/4 of the population lives shows that its not only blacks who are "PNC".
Jagdeo said that the PPP base consists of "rural Indians" and then screamed that "I will tek back Guyana for US".
Volda in fact told the PNC die hards that they need to attract more people who look like Jagdeo.
Yes, I believe you are decent, you just try to play bad sometimes.
I don't believe your excuse for Volda. Is it was so, why apologize? Just replay and clarify what was said. Apologizing means you acknowledge you did something wrong.
Jagdeo did say the PPP's base support are mostly Indians. Well, that's a fact just like the PNC/Afro. In don't think "take back" meant for Indians. You invoking that. Obama said that, so did Trump. The PNC took it back for their elite members!
Volda's problem is that she lit a match in the middle of a gas leak. The PNC is majority black so when she engages in partisan behavior there is an ethnic dimension to it.
While she (in a crude way) suggests that the PNC diversify beyond its ethnic base fostering extreme partisanship is certainly not the way to do this. She badly erred when she boasted that she will only hire "PNC", because to most "PNC" doesn't mean an Amerindian from the Rupununi who is Spanish and Portuguese fluent.
Jagdeo was explicitly racist. He circled the wagons and excluded not only non Indians, but even urban Indians as well. This when he defined the PPP base as being rural Indians, right before the "we gun tek back" rant. When he says "take back" he means explicitly rural Indians. Unlike Volda he didn't even suggest that the PPP needs to expand its base.
Obama ran away from any discussion of race and was much criticized by many blacks. The Black Lives Matter movement arose under him, because many younger blacks were dissatisfied at his impotence in dealing with police abuse directed towards blacks. And now that we see even black policemen and security getting shot while they attend to their duties no one should dispute their actions.
Yes Trump excludes in the same way as Jagdeo does. As with Jagdeo only the rural ethnic base matters. That this isn't enough to ensure electoral victories doesn't seem to bother either.
