The Missing Ingredient in Today’s Debates? Generosity – Gary Younge | The Guardian UK

 By Gary Younge | The Guardian UK

In the early 1960s a white student who had seen Malcolm X speak at her college went to the Nation of Islam restaurant in New York to challenge him on his philosophy.

“Don’t you believe there are any good white people,” he recalled her asking, in his autobiography. “I didn’t want to hurt her feelings,” he wrote. “I told her, ‘People’s deeds I believe in, Miss – not their words.’”

“What can I do?” she exclaimed. “Nothing,” Malcolm X said, and “she burst out crying, and ran out and up Lenox Avenue and caught a taxi”. He would later say of that encounter: “I regret that I told her she could do ‘nothing’. I wish now that I knew her name, or where I could telephone her …”

Generosity is a rare commodity in politics. That is not so surprising on the right: A politics rooted in individualism, self-reliance and private profit does not lend itself to altruism. States of penury and acts of charity are understood to emerge from entirely separate worlds. That is how George Osborne as chancellor could pauperise people with austerity and then, as editor of the London Evening Standard, run a campaign to feed the hungry without any sense of hypocrisy.        Continue reading

Happy Mother’s Day—- REFLECTIONS & INTROSPECTIONS. – By Yvonne Sam

 – By Yvonne Sam

This article is being dedicated to the unsung graduates of the second oldest profession—Motherhood. Surely, we do not need to wait for a special day to become the recipients of greeting cards with our virtues set to prose. It is a day like any other day to reflect on the status quo. Most of us have labored our way into motherhood, with no previous experience (not even having raised a pet) , and yet we are called upon , after having given birth to inelegantly pull ourselves up onto the pedestal provided.

Let’s face it, motherhood could safely lay claim to being the biggest on-the job training program in existence today. It is an art, and mothers are forced to spend x number of years with the child and emerge from it all with an A rating.    Continue reading

American Airlines ends Caribbean JFK–Guyana monopoly with competitive fares

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – One World Alliance member, American Airlines (AA), ended Caribbean Airlines (CAL)’s monopoly on the New York City JFK/Georgetown, Guyana (GEO) route when tickets went on sale on Monday at competitive and cheaper fares than what CAL has been offering Guyanese citizens.

Average return tickets on the route is about US$500 for the non-peak season, and peak season, like Xmas, started at US$ 576-850 roundtrip.

The airline is also connecting Toronto (YYZ) to Georgetown via this new JFK route and which is very convenient because transit passengers from Canada clear US customs and immigration in Canada before arriving in the US. And for the busy Christmas season between YYZ and Georgetown via New York – JFK starts at US$750. Also, between major European cities and GEO fares have dropped because of the vast AA, British Airways, Iberia and Finnair global network.    Continue reading
