The constitutional rights of Black/African Children are an extension of party politics and as a result, black children attend the worse schools according to the political ranting of Dr. Theodore Lewis and other black intellectuals who are making excuses for black students. Their leaders for the past 30 years have failed to administer a country and their race to be productive citizens. In black controlled states of the USA the schools are failing just the same.
Prof. Theodore Lewis and his black ‘ gang ‘ is presenting a false equivalence and false narratives. Pro. Theodore Lewis and his gang have no original thinking and as usual are copying off blacks in the USA and their Black Lives Matter narratives that does not fit the equation of black struggles in Trinidad.
Whose constitutional rights are violated in post independence Trinidad? It’s true that blacks in the diaspora suffered as slaves but unlike in the USA – blacks in Trinidad inherited their white masters institutions leaving Indians in the fields.
Post Independence in Trinidad those institutions like Government Arm Forces, Industries, Schools, Churches. White Gods’ and most of the lands were used to build their black base voters bank which were controlled by the black PNM -gorverment. Trinidad’s Black leaders driven by the PNM – government adopted their white master’s political skills and developed political electoral gerrymandering of boundaries and built black voters banks from migrants from other parts of the Caribbean to have exclusive political power over Indian by even rigging elections.
As far as schools go Blacks have had 50 years or more Anglicized education headstart attending the best schools with whites , mulattos Red -RN , a benefit that was alien to coolie – Indians.
While blacks were attending the high up convent schools Indians were mocked and scorned for attending cow pen schools created by the Maha Sabha – where students were allegedly taught to respect “false Gods”.
Indians had to build their own Mandirs and mud hut schools until the coming of the Canadian Indian Presbyterian MIssion for Indians only with the objective to educate and lactify their Gods.
In Trinidad’ reality, schools that are considered ‘ worse ‘ have to do with students originating from a ‘ poorly’ managed home. All teachers have the same qualifications in all the schools.
The litmus test to prove my point on worse schools is to take the parochial students and place them in the Comprehensive school and vise – versa – and the results will be the same.
The main purpose of Prof. Theodore Lewis is to destroy the Maha Saba , Presbyterian schools mostly of Cow Pen origin- where indentured servants student-children pass with high marks and are an embarrassment to the ‘ so-called worse schools ‘ where black students attend.
This FALSE NARRATIVE – and FALSE EQUIVALENT – that the black man in Trinidad is “helpless/poor” needs to be challenged by Indians who stand by too often an allow blacks to shape opinions by their narrative agenda. This trend must be STOPPED.
There is a huge middle / upper class “Syrian black” group that will win the government for the ” white Syrian”‘ and this is the cause of Black dilemma and never ending complains.
My advice to Prof. Theodore Lewis is for him to STOP focusing on Indians and do a surgical strike on the Leftists local Black Lives Matter movement in Trinidad to truly emancipate their brains. Blacks need to stop carrying the ATM – Race card in their wallet to love every situation. Its black leaders have the African Race on a welfare dependence on government.
37% Indians in Trinidad are marginalized out of winning the seat of the government by corrupt electoral boundaries designed by black leaders and supported by the Black Syrians.
Reminder – Christopher Columbus did not discovered Trinidad for blacks. Its time for Indians to take their fair share in Trinidad by controlling their Constituent with absolute power. Indians stop allowing the black Syrian to chart your destinations. Destroying ‘ Indian schools’ is a declaration of ‘ “war”.
Reminder – The Tribunal Indenturedship Committee for Reparation [ TICFR ] will be holding a mock trial on Guyana Wismar Massacre July 1,2021.
