Commentary: My Walkabout in “Little Guyana”- by Francis Quamina Farrier

This article is about my recent two-hour walkabout in “Little Guyana” which is located in Queens, New York City. First, let me turn back the clock over half a century to my first visit to New York City, which was in 1969. I did not arrive in New York by the route normally taken by tens of thousands of Guyanese over the decades; which is by a flight from Timehri to New York. That first arrival of mine to the Big Apple, was by aircraft from Toronto, Canada.

We all wish to bounce around happily with our political correctness, filled with warm euphemisms, ready to hide our conscience, closing our eyes to the truth under the pretext that if we don’t see it then it doesn’t exist.

We want to be shaken and stirred – but not too much. We want to be guilt-schlepped – but not too much. We want to be provoked – but not too much. We want to be transformed – but not too much.

Yeah, I get it. But as an East Indian I have a compelling obligation, a responsibility to articulate what is in my heart, and what I passionately believe must be said and heard.  Continue reading
