Hypocritical Jagdeo slams Barbados on Guyanese treatment

May 23, 2009 Full story: Stabroek News 30
I donít particularly like Shiela Holder much but I have to agree with her that the blame for this human exodus under the PPPís watch lies squarely on their shoulders.

To Holderís point about all Guyanese not being treated fairly, this will be a bigger problem for the PPP should black Guyanese begin tabling complaints at the doorsteps of our Caricom nations that they are being discriminated against in Guyana by the Indo ruled PPP party. They only need point to the recently completed UN Human Right Report by Gay McDougall which confirmed that blacks are being marginalized by the PPP in terms of access to jobs, educational scholarships and land dispersement.

I have personally heard many Guyanese blacks complaining that the PPPís goal is to create economical genocide amongst the black community as payback for the PNCís previous 28 year rule. They argue that under the PNC there was a socio economical balance since the Indo Guyanese controlled all the jobs in the private sector and the Afro Guyanese were able to find jobs within the government. However, with the PPP in power, the blacks were exited out of government jobs to make room for Indians. Unable to secure private sector jobs as well as government positions they cannot earn a living. This has caused tremendous economical upheaval within the black community. Having no work to support their families, many of the young black men are forced into a life of crime or exit the country to other shores in search of employment.

My advice to President Jagdeo is to take a hard look at what the PPP administrationís policies are doing to the blacks in Guyana and fix it before word of it gets out to the caricom nations. This kind of negative feedback will demonize the PPP with black caricom heads and only cause them further isolation and lost of respect. Seize this opportunity now that Janet Jagan is no longer there to reverse the Apan Jhat politics of Guyana Mr. President and let our nation be a strong leader again. I know you can do it. Full Story

Indeed we should live up to our motto, problem is when will we commence. And if we portray the same behavioral pattern as the opposition, do the voters really have a choice? What is then the difference?

Our endeavor must be to achieve our goals and leave the opposition to be the opposition.

Multi etchnic Gov ? How many Blacks in the Jagdeo administration Pal ? By the way, tell me how many Black and Indian Ministers did Jagdeo fired ? The answer is one the Black one.Even the Indian Minister that beat the crap out of the kid when he tried to defend his aunt was not charged or fired, the PPP/GOV CALLED IT A PRIVATE MATTER.

You are on target that is why you have the problem of race in Guyana and Trinidad to a lesser extent. Soon everyone will be blind.

Let's not be racial here. We need to support national unity. This county is has six races, we must support each other regardless of race.

Why does it always boil down to some racial comment? Come on, Guyana have different races. We have managed to get this far and get along. Let's support national unity.
