Mysterious counter-force in a mysterious land

Feb 12, 2018 –  Kaieteur News –By Freddie Kissoon

Here are the words of former Prime Minister, Sam Hinds in a letter to this newspaper recently, “Following the 2001 jailbreak and their projection by some political factions as ‘Freedom Fighters’, the attacks on assumed supporters of the PPP/C were taken to a higher level.

Racial Conflict: WE cannot fight every FIGHT – By Yvonne Sam

WE cannot fight every FIGHT

By Yvonne Sam

Blacks must utilize their might to ensure success in their own fight.

It is easy to identify and unite with others when they are fighting for the same cause, especially for humanity and freedom. There is absolutely nothing wrong with universal solidarity if it is support to all involved parties.     Continue reading

Why Black History – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

February – Black History Month February, teachers go into their rehearsed routine. They bring out the books from a year ago, dust them Black History is American history. It is rich, extensive, and powerful but it is confined to the shortest month of the year. Each and stack them on their desks. Since it is February they will teach ‘Black History.’

By Tara Bahrampour February 6, 2018 – Washington Post

As more Americans take advantage of genetic testing to pinpoint the makeup of their DNA, the technology is coming head to head with the country’s deep-rooted obsession with race and racial myths.

For those who are surprised by their genetic heritage, the new information can often set into motion a complicated recalibration of how they view their identity.

WHO  ARE  WE ? – REPARATION  FOR  WHOM? – By Hubert Williams

WHO  ARE  WE ? – REPARATION  FOR  WHOM? – By Hubert Williams         

My poem “WHO  ARE  WE?” was penned  years before the Stabroek News editorial’s headline,  but its focus is overwhelmingly on reparation.

I have re-typed the original of this piece and also changed a line to refer to Obama’s presidency. There is now increasing talk about reparation, and I saw in the Barbados Sunday Sun newspaper that UWI’s Sir Hillary Beckles will be lecturing on the subject this Thursday 08 February 2018, in Barbados.    ( SEE info on The Caribbean Reparation Commission at end) Continue reading
