      You got Dutch sounding last name.

      I thought the British took British Guiana from the Dutch in 1814?

      And by the way, lots of British Guiana contractors and their children & grandchildren of half-white, and mostly half-Indo ancestry are currently coming to Guyana in droves to retire and tek eye pass on the locals.

      Someone should tell those boujees that this is Guyana, and not British Guiana. The colonial state of mind still exists in these half-white children of British Guianese contractors.

      If you’re planning to retire in Guyana because of the oil prospects, remember to respect us as human beings unlike the other contractors who look down on us.
