In de world of fashion once a big one do something everybody does follow. People see Meghan Markle wid a bag and before people could blink all de bag sell out.
Guyanese was people who you couldn’t ketch wid patchy clothes. And if dem clothes tear dem throw it away. Up comes some foreigner wid a jeans that tear and de next thing you know all dem women looking fuh tear up clothes.
Dem ain’t wearing this tear-up clothes in dem house, dem dressing up and going to party wid it. That is de thing that mek dem boys realize that Guyanese waiting fuh see who gun do something suh dem gun follow. Dem boys remember years ago Guyanese use to eat only foreign things like grapes and apples and prunes and things like that because was foreign things and foreign people use to eat dem.
That is how dem drink whisky and bourbon wha dem does call brandy. And de police use to lock up people fuh mekking bush rum and de magistrate use to jail dem. De argument was that if people mek bush rum then de foreign likker can’t sell and de government wouldn’t get tax.
Is de same thing mek nuff Guyanese running to de States and Canada. Some of dem trying to run back but dem can’t even go near Donald Trump airport. Dem like de moth that get attract to de flame and when dem get in is fire in dem tail.
