Hate and the American Dilemma

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

“In church! My, God, we’re not even safe in church,” said a worshipper.

These words of anguish were said in 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama and they could apply to Charleston, South Carolina in 2015. The black churches have provided warmth, sustenance and comfort to their members.
But their sacred spaces have also been violated by hate, abuse and violence. The fact is that African-Americans and other minorities cannot be guaranteed safety in their houses of worship.

On Sunday September 15, 1963 four young girls died when a bomb tore down the basement of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Later that day two black teenagers were shot dead in questionable circumstances. The cover-up by the authorities, including the FBI, ensured that it took years before the accused could be brought to justice.  Continue reading

Unseen Cuba: First aerial photographs reveal island’s spectacular beauty

Here’s Cuba as you’ve never seen it before. Lithuanian aerial photographer and publisher Marius Jovaiša is the first artist to receive government permission to fly over the country and photograph it from above.

“Nobody had been able to take aerial pictures of the country because of the secretive political regime and technical difficulties,” he told IBTimes UK. “I thought it would be awesome to try to become the first man on the planet who could convince the Cuban government to give permission for such an endeavour.”    Continue reading

What to an American Slave is the Fourth of July?

Slavery7215

Frederick Douglass told a crowd gathered in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 that to slaves the white man’s celebration of the Fourth of July is a “sham.” And today, the gross injustice and cruelty he was talking about are still existent.

“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July?” asked Frederick Douglass of the crowd gathered at Corinthian Hall in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852. “I answer,” he continued, “a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which lie is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham.”

Breathing new life into Local Government – Commentary

Breathing new life into Local Government

July 2, 2015 | By | Filed Under Editorial

Minister Ronald Bulkan has said that Local Government Elections could be held this year. However, the final word rests with the Guyana Elections Commission. And if the People’s Progressive Party maintains its position on the Elections Commission then that party will not be contesting those elections.

Local Government Elections were last held in 1994, two years after the General Elections that brought the People’s Progressive Party to power. It saw many areas electing their leaders because the People’s National Congress declined to contest the elections as a party.  The former President Desmond Hoyte had made a pitch to the government that the Local Government Elections should be truly local.  Continue reading
