U.S.A: The truly aggrieved are the descendants of slaves not of slave owners– By Mohamed Hamaludin

In this time of coronavirus/COVID-19, “herd immunity” has become a familiar phase but there are two versions. One says that nobody should be vaccinated, allowing everybody to be infected and the virus simply disappears. The scientific version is that everybody – or at least a sufficient number of people –should be vaccinated, making the population immune.

It is an absorbing intellectual exercise trying to determine which version applies to European Americans – the so-called white people – that has caused them to become immune to the reality of their original sin and the continuing agony of the descendants of the four million enslaved African Americans – the so-called black people.      Continue reading

GUYANA: GUYOIL was predictable, definitely inevitable – By By GHK Lall

Kaieteur News – It should disturb me tremendously, but it does not. That is because what unfolded at the State agency, GUYOIL, was so inevitable that it could not be prevented. I write today of the utterly disturbing, except that almost all Guyana would read and absorb, then move forward. That is, until the next ugly report of white-collar criminality hits the news.

After all, de adder people dem used to duh de ezact same ting wen dem bin in deh. Now I share with Guyanese the reasons why I am so completely settled in my convictions that this was so predictable and just had to happen, be it GUYOIL or elsewhere.      Continue reading

Here is How To Start Building Wealth – By Lesley-Anne Scorgie | Toronto Star

Start Building Wealth…. Even Without Any Money – Seven steps

Lesley-Anne Scorgie | Toronto Star

First, she’s constantly inspiring people from all walks of life to rise up and do better for themselves and their communities; second, she got to where she is — a self-made billionaire — via hard work and having a plan, despite the odds stacked against her from childhood; and third, she changed my life completely after I was on her rags-to-riches show in 2001. The episode was called Ordinary People Extraordinary Wealth.            Continue reading

USA POLICING: There Will Be More Derek Chauvins – Adam Serwer | The Atlantic

Powerful political actors are committed to ensuring that the system of American policing remains unchanged.

Adam Serwer | The Atlantic

During his closing argument, Steve Schleicher, one of the prosecutors trying the former police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd, insisted that jurors could convict Chauvin without convicting policing.

“This is not an anti-police prosecution,” Schleicher told the jury. “It’s a pro-police prosecution.”

For his part, Chauvin’s defense attorney, Eric Nelson, told the jury that “all of the evidence shows that Mr. Chauvin thought he was following his training. He was, in fact, following his training.”                Continue reading
