Let harmony overcome hate


I am very disturbed about this farcical racial issue in our country.

We live in this country in harmony. When we watch cricket, for example, we applaud our Caribbean Premier League, whether it be Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Nicholas Pooran or any Trinbago Knight Riders player, with a strong show of patriotism, waving our red, white and black. Where is the hatred on Carnival days? We enjoy ourselves together as though we are colour-blind.

I condemn the racist rants of all who participate in this show of hate. Let’s come together to end this foolishness. Heed our National Anthem, ‘Every creed and race find an equal place’.

Please, let’s not destroy our beautiful country. May God bless our nation.
