U.S.A. — Migrant crackdown by Western nations is rooted in centuries of racist science – By Mohamed Hamaludin

  Immigration policy is usually regarded as a political matter but a much more sinister motive has existed for centuries due to studies by scientists and others who, starting in the 1700s, have strived mightily to prove that foreigners are less than human and, if allowed to immigrate, would pollute the nation.

Journalist and author Sonia Shah,in her book “The Next Great Migration,” traced the work of scientists who pursued such research, including French naturalist George Luis Leclerc Comte de Buffon: “As people and species migrated from the Garden of Eden, Buffon theorized, new diets and climates ‘degenerated’ them.      Continue reading

BOOK REVIEW: Kimani Nehusi’s A People’s Political History of Guyana, 1838-1964 – By: Eusi Kwayana

Kimani Nehusi’s A People’s Political History of Guyana, 1838-1964 – (Hansib, 2018)
Book Review by Eusi Kwayana

This is a rather late review of a significant work of Guyanese history by Dr. Kimani Nehusi which he titled A People’s Political History of Guyana, 1838-1964 and published in 2018. This delay is regreted. It is regreted especially because the reviewer has had a long acquaintance with the scholar’s efforts to identify moments of consciousness as they emerged and became perceptible among various classes of the colonized peoples of Guyana. This concern had engaged the scholar’s pursuits even while he was in undergraduate study at the University of Guyana and had begun to interview elders available to him across the society and make careful notes.        Continue reading

USA – Two Nations Under God – commentary – by: The Economist

It is not clear that they can be persuaded to vote Democrat, however

THE ECONOMIST | Nashville, Tennessee and Keller, Texas 

Set in the bucolic countryside on the edge of Nashville, Christ Presbyterian Church is a stately building where, in normal times, hundreds of evangelical Christians gather to worship. On a recent Sunday a smaller, socially distanced congregation assembled to hear the preacher speak on the eighth chapter of the gospel of Mark, in which Jesus asks his disciples:

“Who do people say I am?”      Continue reading

OPINION: Reimagining the Caribbean Diaspora: diversity, equity and inclusion – by Lear Matthews

 by Lear Matthews

 This article focusses on the English speaking Caribbean Diaspora’s experience within the context of diversity, equity and inclusion in the aftermath of recent societal unrest and institutional realignment in the United States.

It highlights a continuation of courageous conversations on the topic (See Guyanese Online: February 20-21, 2021).             Continue reading

OPINION: Who Am I Culturally? – by: Jean Janki Samaroo

Written by: Jean Janki Samaroo

Am I Guyanese, British-Guyanese, Indo-Guyanese, South American, Canadian, Guyanese-Canadian, or some blend of these different cultures? Is my background East-Indian, West-Indian or Indo-Caribbean? What about the fact that my geographical place of birth was South America? Am I just an eclectic person— one of mixed cultural heritages?

The simple answer is that I have been influenced by a diversity of cultures from the day I was born. Whether I’m definitely one thing or the other is worth questioning but the answer that I have will be different to that of another person from the same background. Guyanese are not all the same just as Canadians are not all the same. There are variables.

BOOK: Big Ole Home By De Sea – By Neena Maiya

Slices of daily life in a sunny home by the sea. For good measure, the goings-on of the locals around the home are thrown in. The book is liberally sprinkled with madcap…at times, philosophical…conversations between mother and daughter, visitors, tradesmen. Food is plentiful. Tall tales add to the sauce. A ghost seeks help. Stones grow. A snake dances.

Around the home, the wind and the birds whistle. Sunbeams, filtered by trees, limbo across the lacquered wooden floor.

Some nights, danger lurks. Bandits. Gunshots in the wee hours of the morning. A thief sneaks into a neighbour’s home.

OPINION: Are the Pastors doing enough? – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

— Sadly men of the cloth are not behaving as they ought.

Has the church lost its influence? Has it become weaker? Are the pastors hiding?

A shroud of darkness has enveloped the land, and I am yet to see the pastors make a historical stand. In 2015, I wrote an article denouncing the rising rate of femicide in Guyana, and called on, not only the government, but also the church, to make efforts to ensure that we stamped out the seeming Guyanese curse — that of our men being responsible for putting our women in hearses. www.kaieteurnewsonline.com/2015/12/05/guyanese-women-find-themselves-in-a-catch-22-situation-2/.      Continue reading

VIDEO: Race in America – by Phil Vischer – Part 1 of 2

VIDEO: Race in America – by Phil Vischer

We need to talk about race. Why are people angry? Why so upset? Didn’t we elect a black president? Pass civil rights laws? Isn’t racism illegal now? Three years ago my brother Rob and I co-taught a class that discussed issues of racial injustice. That class turned into a popular podcast episode, which we’ve now turned into this video. Why are people still angry? Let’s take a look at race in America…
