  1. Zarene, We are always right. Clinton Urling is a African, Dr. Peter Ramsaroop is an Indian, and Young Miss Africo Selman is a Proud Amerindian (Indigenous). I am more of an Indian with four races in me. What are you?
    Guyana has and will always have race issues. You need to start travel the world to understand this. The thing is you PNC people are not thankful for what God has allow the PPP to do for Guyana.

  2. Do people have to politicized everything. Are we such backward people? Why do we try to put racism in everything

  3. Smooth operation at the synthetic track with no accusation and only one set of people may be benefiting. What a way to Modernization! Guyana has really been Developing. Guyana is blessed to have the right people to Govern this beautiful Country, and now young people like Clington Urling, Africo Selman, Peter Ramsaroop,Yusuf, Balant Persaud, etc. joining to help propelled Development.
    PNC/AFC sleeping, they forget to protest at the opening. No more buns and coolade for them.

  4. strange that this track is commission and Guyana could not be represented at the carifta games because they could not find money to send anyone.
