Since the PPP government took office in Guyana in 1992, it has systemically promoted racism and ethnic division, and has established an ethnocracy which has an insidious noose around the neck of African Guyanese population with which it attempts to subjugate and render it servile.
They have opposed every African-Guyanese former PNC government official who has been nominated for senior international and/or local positions, but has without reservation supported and embraced East Indians who have been similarly nominated – a manifestation of an entrenched, congenital belief in ethnic and racial supremacy.
Here are a few examples: Jagdeo and the racist PPP opposed Carl Greenidge for Secretary General for the ACP as well as Caricom Trade Negotiator and Clarence Ellis as Director of the World Bank and IDB.
To the contrary, Jagdeo and the racist PPP have supported Sir Shridath Ramphal in every international or regional undertaking and appointment. They have also supported the appointment of Dr. Mohammed Shahabuddeen to the World Court and the War Crimes Tribunal.
Currently, they have ‘commissioned’ a nefarious, sleaze campaign to smear Brig. David Granger, who served as Commander of the Guyana Defense Force. Conversely, Jagdeo and the racist PPP have wholeheartedly embraced and supported Brig. Gen. Joe Singh, the former Chief of Staff of the Guyana Defense Force under the PNC government. President Jagdeo and the racist PPP government even appointed Joe Singh Chairman of the Elections Commission.
Guyana needs a government that believes in and promotes, as a national policy, racial equality, unity and harmony; the equal co-existence of all peoples and the equitable sharing of the benefits of the development and economic prosperity of Guyana.
President Jagdeo, PPP General Secretary Donald Ramotar and the PPP regime generally represent the evil poles of Guyana’s politics, of which the nation has had enough!
