Article talks about “half Indian woman” “The Indian”
by Crab Hill Man
Dear Barbados Free Press,
It is a shame that you had a falling out with Barbados Underground over the BU’s racist rants. When was it, 2008, 2009? I remember you dropped the link to BU over they called the murdered Jewish woman “White Trash”.
I always thought that BU and BFP worked well together to shine some light on the cockroaches and their side deals and it was a shame about your falling out. I understood you have to draw a line but it was a shame anyways and a loss for Bajans.
You were right, however. The racial thing is still there at BU and worse or same as ever.
“Why must the people at this utility put up with this half Indian woman whose roots are in Suttle Street…”
“The Indian is a highly paid consultant…”
from BU’s article Corn Beef and Biscuits: DISPLEASED and Fed up!
@Crab Hill Man – Race is always just below the surface in Bim and that’s no wonder considering the history ’bout hey. But if we accept racially derogatory speech from our leaders and the public press we will never move ahead. The BU article could have been a useful discussion of favouritism and nepotism in public service. Anytime a politician does special things for a mistress it’s interesting and newsworthy, but one gets the impression that the author wouldn’t be complaining about anything except that the beneficiary of sleeping with a political elite is “half-Indian”.
Horrors! Someone has a mistress of Indian racial background! Oh the Horror!
