Colour of the words

Gline Clarke should stop making these racist comments.
The first was in the House of Assembly when he referred to members of the Barbados Rally Club as “white boys”. I am sure Mr Clarke would not like to he called a “black boy”.
The second was in the media: that the Government was giving too many contracts to Whites.
Why can’t he refer to them as large, established contractors? Why must he bring colour into it?
In any case, hundreds of black Barbadians are employed by the same white contractors.
It seems racist comments are only deemed racist in Barbados when they are targeted at Blacks.
People like Mr Clarke should set an example.

Some ministers of religion have said a resounding no to same-sex marriages being performed in Barbados. Do you agree?
