Racism alive and well in T&T.
So I just got home and drove into my yard and was closing my gate, and this negro guy reversed to where I had just closed my gate and exclaimed: “You r U.N.C.”
For those that do not know U.N.C. is a political party that perceived as an Indian party, and some like to believe that the current party in government, the P.N.M. is a negro party.
I do not have any U.N.C. banners, colours or any U.N.C. symbolism, other than being of East Indian decent. In fact, I dislike the politics in Trinidad and Tobago for the basal, racial and socio-political divisions they manifest.
I never told the guy a word. I had on a native american/pagan t-shirt, my hair is purple, a black jeans, the only thing is that I am East Indian.
So in essence, as I am East Indian, he perceives me with political stereotyping based on the race politics that the ignorant masses follow blindly and know not how they are being manipulated by the parties involved. Again reinforcing my opinion of the mindlessness of the typical Trinbagoian who have the racism integrated into psychological and social behaviour that is fostered by this shit island sociological and political forces.
