In the social construct of political Trinidad, African [Blacks] are considered Black Syrians and Syrians [Arabs] are considered ‘White’ Syrians. Indians are defined as Indians. Africans in Trinidad politically will form an alliance with the ‘White’ Syrians against Indians to empower their political interests which has an impact on their society. The ‘Black’ Syrians always identified the Indians as their political enemy and as a race that wants to take their economic interests from their ‘White’ Syrians brothers. The ‘Black’ Syrians get into political power with the economic help of their ‘White’ Syrian brothers while the ‘White’ Syrians get greater economic advantages and monopolize the businesses in the country while both groups point fingers at the ‘rich’ Indians with their shops and doubles business as taking all the economic gains. They keep poorer blacks fed on this racist ideology against Indians while they enjoy the fruits at the highest levels of the country. They also keep poorer blacks on welfare to keep them around for their votes. No matter how much times PNM gets elected they will never help poorer blacks because the poor black is the PNM vote bank. The ‘rich’ Indian with his doubles business is the enemy of the poor black and so they continue to spin their web of lies forever.
Therefore, these ‘Black’ Syrians should be thought of like the Anglo-blacks which I have written about. Anglo-blacks inherited the political hierarchy of Trinidad and all of the power when the British left. The inherited British values culturally and all of their institutions. They had more power and continue to wield and retain that power because Indians were initially more uneducated and remain politically uneducated. Now that the white man has left the ‘White’ Syrian has taken their place but as a minority they wield power by giving political power to the elite Anglo-blacks who maintain power while they ‘White’ Syrians get the lion’s share of the economic power. These elite Anglo-blacks have become Syrio-blacks. Their game includes keeping the masses delusional by making poor blacks see the doubles making Indian as their enemy.
Indians have to understand their own Hindology which explains that the Indians must seek their own political interests and make alliance with others that serve their political power which will impact on their social and economic behavior. The governing thought that Indians fall prey to politically is that Blacks suffered more than any other race due to slavery and Indians must stand down. They keep Indian mentality in check by reiterating this ‘slaves suffered more than Indentured Indians’ to also keep Indians from speaking out and realizing how they are being used and treated as second class citizens.
In Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname and even the USA each ethnic group had their episodes of oppressions and fought for their respective freedoms. The African slaves and the Indentured Irish and Italians just like the Indentured Indians all had episodes of struggles that lead to the freedom of man and woman. Indians in Trinidad, Guyana, Suriname, those who migrated to the USA, Canada, England and the NRIs from India throughout the World must NOT be bothered who suffered more and give the Green Light for another race to dominate their political interests. Africans in Trinidad have an alliance with ‘White’ Syrians. ‘White’ Syrians use their ‘White’ privilege for their economic interests and are buying up and monopolizing the economy of Trinidad and Tobago. In Guyana, Africans allied with Portuguese against Indians, and in America Blacks allied with the Lefty Socialists to serve their interests. In today’s world each country, race and major religion are forming alliances with others that foster their political economic interest and this has nothing to do with which race suffered more. There are Arab countries that form alliance with Israel for their country’s best interest meanwhile Arabs and Turks did to people in the East what these leftist socialist blame the white man for doing in the West.
Indians in Trinidad must NOT get caught up with the ‘Black’ Syrian’s episodes of White Imperialism. The ‘Black’ Syrians and ‘White’ Syrians are their political enemy. While it’s good to know the history of the country that one lives in, Indians must know in contemporary time who is the greatest political threat to their ethnic survival and not fall for political ethnic sorrow of past history. We Indians know that slavery and indentureship were horrific but should Indians should not surrender their political ambitions because the ‘Black’ Syrians say they suffered more and keep oppressing us while their White Syrians brothers are reaping the gains. Absolutely NOT.

A good starting guide for Indians can be Hindology. Hindology teaches us Indians how to THINK and ACT POLITICALLY AND SOCIALLY guided through the means of academia, history, economics and other paths. Our ideas and thoughts must be constructed to make political Investments that will have a meaningful impact on our educations, economic and military share in the power and resources of the Caribbean.
