Original Post

Scandinavians don't know why people see them as happy when smiles and laughter and spontaneity aren't their character traits.  I think they see Trinis and Brazilians being a happier people.

Because they have fewer social issues because of a stronger safety net doesn't make them happier.

 No wonder we used to cuss dem under colonialism and now we are running, rowing, swimming and doing anything to get into the 'massa' countries. We were fooled by our independence leaders. Many of us will prefer to live under the Brits and other Europeans than everyone of our 'rulers'. Life was better under colonialism. Imagine how much better it would have been now.  Check this out -

We have forgotten what life was like under the British.  Just as some adults wish to become a child again so some of us wish to be returned to colonial rule.  Life wasn't better for us as children unless you are an irresponsible adult who doesn't want to direct your own life.

So your father was happy to be told that to be an Indian meant cutting cane and to be a black meant being a stevedore.  There was massive discrimination in the colonial days and few of us had the opportunity to reach the highest professional levels.  Even being a bank teller then meant one had to be white or very light skinned.  If you were black you didn't even get hired as a sales clerk at Fogarty's and at Bookers Universal one had to be white.

But that is the world that you want.  Back as a child where daddy knew best and told you not to have high aspirations.

You are too young to know. Life under the British was better. Wages were low but the standard of living and education were far better than today.

Blackman, coolieman, chineyman, buckman, douglaman, Arabs, Jews, and the whole world is against Prashad. I bet you can keep an entertaining wake at a dead house.

I am old enough to see who worked at Bookers, Fogarty's and the banks and it wasn't people like me nor was it people like you.

Most Indians in those days were fit to cut grass, sell milk and clean the drains.  They didn't even want you in school unless you became a Christian.

Too bad for you. I worked for Bookers at the age of 18 in the Local Accounts Office before I got another job.

I doan know weh yuh come from. Bookers in 1957 established one of the best technical schools in the entire world. Its 2000 graduates are high achievers on the planet. Those selected at the age of 15 were paid to go to the school for 5 years. GRANGER closed down the school but kept the other lower calibre schools open.

I would suppose hate has its way of rationality.

2019 Report Ranked, Canada  # 9, score 7.278. United States  # 19, score 6.892, not a very huge margin in score.

In this case 9 is GREATER/ BETTER than 19. Ten countries ahead!
