    why a "black Caucus' ?

    does that mean that "Black" is the minority or underserved population

    btw: you know caribe2 will raise objection to "black"

    its a caucus formed by black business owners and black interest groups

    they intend on seeking the interest of blacks through new groceries, new malls, banks, credit unions etc all black owned in Trinidad & Tobago

    Can you provide some history on why it has come down to this ?

    We see this type of things in places with a "minority" population and a history of "racism"

    Would you describe proponents of this as "afro centrists" ?

    was formed in the mid 2000's to improve the condition of blacks

    because everyone else is improving in fields of business and climbing the social ladder

    it really take off recently with William Munroe, Iwer George and others pushing this

    the new grocery will rival Pricemart in size

    Africans at this point know that we need things that cater to us! try to circulate our dollar within our community for several cycles

    i would say most of the people are afrocentrists, people like Harvey Borris, David Mohammed and Gladiator are afrocentrists

    as some may know street 91.9 is owned by Iwer George so the black agenda is aired here and Harvey Borris wants to open an african radio station in the future.

    Ship has already sailed.
    This is reactive.
    The c00l13 people already monopolized.

    From the the first Indian set foot on Trinidad shores this division was created and future exploits set into motion.
    Its only now the soft weak slow Trinidadian Blacks realizing that the c00l13 people preferred marginalization than homogenization.
