Why do Indian politicians insist on stating their narratives by first praising their opposites? Why do Indians always seek legitimacy and acceptance from others before stating their case?
Whenever a Pundit delivers his discourse he will first make a point or two from the Bible, that is,
what Jesus say about truth / love and then proceed to give his lesson from the Ramayana.
When an Indian politician / activists speak he or she seeks blessing from their ethnic opponents by saying we all experience the same difficult times in indenture as in slavery before talking
about their political and cultural problems. This type of behavior of Indians in Trinidad & Guyana in patronizing their African and religious opponents is a recipe for a failed discourse.
Indian Empowerment can only be a reality by not second guessing themselves. Indians must speak and act with confidence without care who gets upset as long it’s within the laws and they believe it to be the truth. When Indians look for approval before starting to preach the ‘Sermon on the Mount,’ it’s a sign of weakness and can be understood or ignored as just Indian rhetoric and should not be taken seriously.
When an African speaks and act in Trinidad or Guyana and at their various institutions and conferences or seminars, the African speaks and act unapologetically and does not look for acceptance from Indians, or no one else. It’s a kind of empowerment and privilege Indians never give themselves. Unless Indians leaders and activists show a kind of brave tenacity this kind of cowardly behavior will trickle down to the Indian population and keep the Indian race helpless
