For this can never be said often enough, the freedoms we today enjoy, are consequential to our ancestors’ sacrifices. Thus, today we stand on the shoulders of Dr. Martin Luther King, for he made the ultimate sacrifice, advocating for our equality. We stand on the shoulders of Nelson Mandela, for he made the ultimate sacrifice, advocating for our equality. We stand on the shoulders of Malcolm X, for he made the ultimate sacrifice, advocating for our equality. We stand on the shoulders of Rosa Parks, for she made the ultimate sacrifice, advocating for our equality. We stand on the shoulders of Harriet Tubman, for she made the ultimate sacrifice, advocating for our equality. We stand on the shoulders of Dr. David Hinds, as he sacrifices, advocating for our equality. Thus, when they of ultimate sacrifice illuminated Black injustices, they spoke not of Black supremacy. For racism is a superiority construct, therefore a fight for equality, with equally our fight, can’t be rationally construed as racist.
Black ad nauseam
But that heard, was Freddie Kissoon of excruciating grammar, foaming at the mouth as he communicated intent, to continue denigration of our Black leaders. To that end, with disgust and animus plastering his forehead, he fiercely blurted, all Dr. Hinds ever speak of is BLACK BLACK BLACK BLACK. But blinded by bigoted eyes, he can’t see what we experience, a discriminated people without a platform for redress. For we are dying, a burden on Dr. Hinds, with PPP reducing us to vagrants of scraps, in this land that soaks our ancestors blood.Thus, an inquiry, didn’t those before him also cried BLACK BLACK BLACK BLACK injustices? Was Dr. Martin Luther King racist? Was Rosa Parks racist? Was Malcolm X racist? Was Mandela racist? Was Harriet Tubman racist? Is the Civil Rights Movement racist? And with answers negative, how could Dr. David Hinds be deemed racist?
Dr. Martin Luther King
Thus, with this pause we speak of one, who is now exalted, albeit once persecuted for delivering the inconvenient truth. For in him we have an exemplar life, a gold standard if you may, that avails itself for our appraisal. In fact, unique he was, communicating to teach in his self-narrated and written eulogy, an invaluable lesson for us all.
Where humility and serving humankind he consistently championed, thus his noble prize and 400 awards he relegated to the unimportant. However, his services to humankind he wished remembered, exemplified in his anti-war posture, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked as he visited the incarcerated. What’s more, he prayed remembered as a drum major. A drum major for justice. A drum major for peace. A drum major for righteousness. A drum major who sought not monetary wealth, for blessings were his wealth, when serving others. When cheering others. When redirecting the misdirected.
Therefore, in Dr. Martin Luther King, we have this unambiguous message, our life should be of service, utilising whatever platform God provided us.
Thus, with his life the comparator, we appraise one with the misplaced aura of humankind ultimate saviour. For Freddie Kissoon, the Saviour in Chief, has boasted ad nauseam of being an academic extraordinaire, however inconsequential it’s, having not undertaken any research to the benefit of humankind. Then tiresomely, he self-praised of being an exemplar social activist, nevertheless in very coated tongue, posited PPP had a solid 2yrs, despite mountainous extrajudicial killings. A solid 2yrs year even as cost of living transitioned cost of death. A solid 2yrs even with hundreds of unavoidable Covid-19 deaths. A solid 2yrs even as millions the world over, saw Guyana for sale. Thus of concern, this we query, when last he has had a solid one, for it all seem to be coming out of his mouth?
But his gasconade is surely steroids driven, as he bared pecs, self-exalting as a par excellence political activist. Thus, PPP claptrap he adopted, demanding SOPs, despite they having been rendered legally inconsequential. Nevertheless, we saw 49 ballot boxes without statutory documents, but the par excellence political activist is unaware, having retired to a stupefying slumber. Then the phantom voters voted but the par excellence political activist is muted, having been burdened with a severe case of vocal cord palsy. And with PPP running from the election petition, like it were the monkey pox, the par excellence political activist has gone into full monkey mode, swinging from branch to branch, desperate to swing away from that subject matter.
Notwithstanding, the pathognomonic signs we see, of one under the monetary control, of his political masters. Thus, displaying lips painted PPP red, he pointed fingers at Dr. Hinds, without an iota of evidence, asserting the elections he rigged. Then in the very halitosis breath, he demanded Dr. Hinds evidence Black discrimination under PPP. But our sympathy he has, recognising such asininity is symptomatic of him, having not completed high school.
Nonetheless, these words he speaks ad nauseam. I have Black friends, so I can’t be racist. I grew up in Wortmanville, with Black people, so I can’t be racist. My sister married a Black man, so I can’t be racist. However, as he offloaded racist hogwash, it lay bare a nonexistent encephalon. For this we know, racism isn’t precluded by our neighbours. In fact, our slave masters neighboured millions of Blacks, but racist they surely were. Racism isn’t precluded with having Black friends. Racism isn’t precluded on our choice of marriage. Racism is a mindset, intrinsic, triggered in the right environment.
For we do recall his mindset during the election impasse, where he accused Justice Claudette Singh, who he claimed is related to Lincoln Lewis, of only embracing her Black side. Thus, without evidence he asserted, she will call the election for the Black PNC, rather than an Indian PPP. Then deep in racist emotions, he proceeded to disparage her, based on his supposition that she is leaning Black. For that’s racist.
But this was his conviction, as an Indian Supremacist supporting APNU+AFC, special privileges were his. Thus, when those privileges weren’t bestowed, he registered an irreversible preprogrammed Judas mode, plotting with Charrandass Persaud, to remove the Government. Thereafter, of reddened eyes, the election campaign he desecrated, weaponising his column to unjustifiably attack anything Black, as retaliation for not acknowledging his racial supremacy. And that too is racist. Thus, unmasked is a chameleon, who of a racist mindset, sat to break bread with us, but is now exposed as racist, in the environment of elections 2020.
