Is There Racism In Trinidad & Tobago?
My hiatus is over, the last post was during the Carnival season. Truth be told, this blog did not experience the traction as it did in previous carnivals.
I am always heartened by the daily stats that consistently logs over 200 visits a day without any new posts. The automated traffic is a direct benefit of aging with Google. This blog has been alive since 2007, Google likes that.
The reality is that it was a comment I just approved on a post that revitalized my interest in this blog. Funny how little things ignite action. This little thing, this racist comment on a post made me start posting agan. It was a post made last January about Trinidad and Tobago upcoming elections The post predicted the outcome of the next General Elections. It was entitled Who Do You Think Will Win The Next Election.
At first, I was just going to delete the nasty comment but then I said to myself; why not? Why not let everyone know that there are people like this out there. Feeling like what is expressed in that comment should not be deleted, it should be shared.
It in no way represents the feeling of everyone in that race but it exemplifies how some people in our society think. This is a two sided affair, both sides are guilty of having similar despicable views. Some people just feel they have the right or anonymity to express these vile comments.
Look out for comments on what is happening in the next general elections and get opinions from a semi objective observer.
