    Soooo, India is the mother reconnecting with her lost child but no mention of Africa? I guess Africa is de dead beat fada who cut out after he mek nuf nuf pickney he can’t afford but he wan mother India fuh tek care ah all a dem – even dem dat nat even sheh own. He prappa stupidy if he tink she gwan do dis.

    Now ah see he even gat wan ah he pickney desperately begging fuh de wuk wan a mother India pickney ave even tho he pickney na qualify. He wan educated wuk but he dunce fuh so. I’m alluding here to the david hinds creature who, from the moment I saw his photo and read his trash, reminded me of the character, Jefferson (the hog), in ‘A Lesson Before Dying’. Except hinds with his hyena grin is more like a hybrid of the two animals. His affirmative action push is him showing his desperation for Dr. Roopnarine’s position even though he is extremely unqualified for the position. Affirmative action my foot! His kind wants handouts for life. Dem gat no character me tell ya! Is why dem lot fill up de prisons.
