Guyanese performer and producer Eddy Grant, has called on fellow Guyanese to seriously discuss the country's race problems and try to find a solution.
In a tourism meeting in Georgetown, the countrys capital, Grant says he wants to see the creation of a unique Guyanese identity, instead of fragmentation and bickering mainly among descendants of African slaves and those of East Indian indentured labourers. Together those two races make up most of Guyana's reported 700,000 population.
President Jagdeo, disagrees thought, that Guyana is on the brink of racial conflict. He however admitted there are politically motivated racial problems.
In a separate issue a Guyanese born man, Jagat Ram Balram killed in New York by a Hispanic, is believed by the Indo Caribbean community there to be a racial crime. They claim they are under threat though the evidence suggests it was a simple attack, without racial motive.
yLSZSV You made some decent points there. I did a search on the subject and found most individuals will approve with your blog.

start to buy your plane and boat tickets people
ok people we need to have a "rainbow generation"like the great nasio fontain has been saying. now stop looking each other as blacks and indian and start look each other as Guyanese. i know it may be hard to do but shit try.
i thought all people in guyana had part african and part indian in them well it's not to late shit people start procreating with each other and if that cant happen i suggets the real indian move to India and all the real africans them move to Africa and leave guyana for the open minded.

Response to DOUGLA @ QUEENS NY
In response to DOUGLA's comment on March 13th, 2005. Many of the Indians WERE treated as a lower class. This does not mean that Indo- caribbean's are living in the past. It is something that everyone has to put with. Just like people of African Decent have to put up with racism that exists today because of slavery. It's something that haunts everyone of a visible minority. The country shouldn't be divided by racial lines. If something can be done about it, let it be done. Have a more positive attitude rather than bringing negatives vibez to it.

MANY INDIANS THINK THAT DURING THE PNC REIGN THAY WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AND WERE TREATED AS THE LOWER CLASS. WHETHER THIS IS TRUE OR NOT, UNTIL THEY CAN LEAVE THE PAST IN THE PAST THE COUNTRY WILL BE DIVIDED ALONG RACIAL LINES....

I totally agree, as Guyanese we need to address the racial issue and stop acting as though it is not an issue or in existence. It is hard to build a country where you have one group building while the other is destroying. Guyanese (all races) need to remember our goal is to build a better Guyana. Guyanese study your history and understand where and why they attempted to turn Blacks (Afro-Caribbean/Africans) against East Indian. If you divide a nation, it is easier to conquer. Remember, earlier in our history Africans and East Indians were considered coloured people. One People One Nation One Destiny, our motto is your guide to building a better nation.
