    Well this is a nice change; a black trini living in trini and willing to comment on the culture and the people. Seems lately all we hearing is non-trinis giving their summary of life in tnt after spending a few days there for carnival.
    So naughtie how bad is poverty in tnt...are people dying of starvation there?

    i tryna figure out how to start.....

    well the secondary school i went to had a mix of alll types of kids, my core peer group consisted of 2 indians, a syrian, a chindian, a chinee, 3 negros (including me) and a dougla....and this group was formed in form 1 eh...and we rallied till form 4 abouts started disintegrating in form 5...anywhoos before that we would frequent each others houses for birthdays, random weekends etc...my "non black" friends parents never treated me any differently than the others...

    Now in my interactions with other ppl...i dont necessarily chalk up a bad interaction to me being black an they being light skin or indian or chinee...

    I had an experience once with an indian cashier in a store tho...i was watchin her cash and she gave everybody in de line before me who happened to be indians their change in their had but she rest mine on de counter and made no sorta eye contact with me...i think thats the closest i wud say i have come to racism....

    oh an when i was in form 2, there was this boy who liked me an he was half indian (mother), half german (father)...went to his house for a pool party...i was the only black person there..i felt very uncomfortable...but his family was very nice to me except his mother....

    i wud say those are the only 2 experiences i can think of now that cud be racial...

    Thanks Naughty...

    But on the topic of racism I am really curious what some Indo-Trinis would have to say in all honesty on the subject. Now that would be a really grand discourse. If it ever happens.
