The government of Guyana has devised a plot to respond to accusations of racism against the Afro Guyanese community by not only the cries of the man in the street but by an increasing number of very reputable voices in the African community.
While international governments and investors monitor the situation with concern, the PPP government has hatched an ill-conceived plan to deny deny deny when the facts are clear for the world to see. Another component of the plan is to visit African communities, take photos with Black people and make big promises. When villagers speak up, the leader explodes into anger and loud verbal tirades. His behavior is well documented on video and it is most concerning.
Although antidemocratic and vile, one can understand why the PPP would choose to target former government officials but the idea of firing hundreds of public service employees, attempting to undo legal contracts, encouraging their puppets in the GPF to arrest government officials and file false charges against Rickford Burke and others is simply reprehensible. In addition, the government of Guyana understands how tough the economy is, they are the ones that have launched cash payments as relief for (certain) citizens, so think about how evil those minds that conspire to fire Black people because of political affiliation must be. Consider for one minute how vile the minds that conspire to break down people’s homes during the rainy season and divert taxpayer funds overwhelmingly to their own supporters. Putrid!
There is no place for ugly PPP racism in this new Guyana economy and Black people in Guyana must stop supporting businesses run by racism deniers. The acts that are being perpetuated against Afro Guyanese are simply evil and will hurt African people for generations. These dastardly acts cannot simply be erased by crass village visits, and donations of trinkets to communities. The people deserve better. African people must summon the courage and dignity of their ancestors who fought against ugly enslavement and racist policies for hundreds of years. African people must speak up, stand up and stop entertaining racism deniers.
