Guyana Politics: PPP/C launches election campaign for 2020 polls

Hundreds of its supporters, decked in red shirts with PPP/C logos, shouted and screamed for party frontbenchers Bharrat Jagdeo, Irfaan Ali and Mark Phillips.

There are several notable mentions. ………  Bishop Juan Edghill gave an impassioned, sermon-like speech, addressing a stigma on the PPP/C from some sections of the public that it may not be a party welcoming to African Guyanese. He stressed a firm rebuke for those aspersions on the reputation of the PPP/C, then went on to list a number of African Guyanese party members as proof that it is welcoming.            Continue reading

Cricket: The Single Letter That Altered a Sport and Changed Lives – Mike Atherton, Chief Cricket Correspondent | The Times UK

   — By Mike Atherton, Chief Cricket Correspondent | The Times UK

This happy conclusion — an honest man of high cricketing gifts against the forces of racism, his passage to freedom, taking his wife and children with him, and his example to millions of others — has given me one of the greatest feelings of joy from any episode in my life.” John Arlott, 1980.

It is a steep walk up to Signal Hill. Head out from District Six, whose inhabitants were evicted during the apartheid era, find Wale Street, with its pretty pastel-coloured houses, head left up the cobbled streets, climbing all the time, and eventually you will get to Upper Bloem Street, near the brow of the hill. Above you, looms the majestic Table Mountain. Below, the teeming city of Cape Town.  Continue reading

Impeachment aside—Is everything all right with a Democratic field so White – By Yvonne Sam

 — By Yvonne Sam

Candidates of color out of the presidential  race by the restrictions, rules and norms in place.

On December 19, the day after President Donald Trump was impeached by the House for abuse of power, the Democratic presidential candidates held their final debate of the year at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. On the stage were Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, along with Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Vice President Joe Biden, billionaire Tom Steyer and entrepreneur Andrew Yang, the only non-white contender.  Visibly absent from the lineup was Cory Booker and Kamala Harris who regrettably is completely out of the race, although former President Barack Obama  recently said that women were better leaders.  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/17/us/politics/democratic-debate-labor-marymount.html
