It’s amazing how independent Trinidad ruled for 50 years by former freed slave descendants [ Africans ] are now the owners of house slaves [ Indians – Coolies ] and they have become Trinidad’s contemporary oppressors.
1956 was the beginning of sanitizing the White Man to move to Black / Brown rule that resulted in 1962 to an independent Trinidad unknowingly it would lead from White to Black [ Africans ] oppressors.
Trinidad Blacks have two holidays dates to celebrate ie Emancipation Day and 1962 independence Day, while Indians [ Coolies ] only have Indian Arrival Day. Independence Day.
Is meaningless to them. Indians in Trinidad do not feel an independent Trinidad is representatives of their Social , Cultural and political interests in Black ruled Trinidad.
In Trinidad the school system, legal system, all governmental institutions, the electorate system and even how Trinidadians should think and behave are all skewed against the Indian. Indians have no say from birth to Cremations in Trinidad. Indians Villages and neighborhood are eroded with fast growing Black projects used as PNM voter banks.
Independent Trinidad promises of one love, one Unity and ” together we aspire, together we achieve ” is a road to hell for
In Trinidad the Black Man control the Indian way of life from birth to Cremations, and
how Indians should think and behave.
The Black conquerors of Trinidad stole the whole of Trinidad for themselves through the help of House Slaves Indian (HSI) in the PNM
and electoral fraud to form the government. Had Trinidad rule by Indians for 50 years blacks would have been rioting within the first 5 years as in Guyana.
Indian political,social and economic development will never take place under black rule. It’s time that the Indian race take control of their own development socially and economically. The Indian political leaders and think tanks must address why Indians in Trinidad are still treated as indentured servants to former Slaves. Again, Blacks in Trinidad are not Super Powers, nor did Columbus discovered Trinidad for Africans.
Trinidad African / Negro Power is dependent on Indian Passivity. Once the Indian Mind is thinking for an Indian Independent Trinidad their oppressors will beg to have the meeting of the minds. And only then will Indians will have control of their own development in Trinidad.
