I had reasons to write letters critical of Freddie Kissoon before, but I firmly believe in the fairness doctrine: when a man is right, he must be complimented with the same fervor as when he is being criticised for being wrong.
I read the caption of his article (Kaieteur News of April 30), and thought that he had shifted his interest from politics to sports; I was wrong, but he was right.
I strongly support his call for Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s rejection of this award from the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC).
In fact, Chanderpaul should use this opportunity to make a profound statement against racism, by going to the presentation and tell the world why he cannot accept this award. He should talk about racism and the way it’s dividing our people. Let him be an ambassador for peace and unity, or stay clear of politics for it will hurt his illustrious career.
It is time Guyanese stop thinking of themselves as Indo-Guyanese and Afro-Guyanese, and know that regardless of colour, we’re all Guyanese with one nation and one destiny as our motto clearly states.
Guyana is in the mess we’re in precisely because of racism, and we will never be free to live in peace and harmony with each other, until we elect a colour-blind government.
