of black protective melanin in their skin against the sun'S burning,
that I began to do a bit of thinking, objectively,, about it all.
Of course the big red herring is .slavery -always. spoken of in its
most extreme and brutal form, the trading, and. transport of .he.African
aslWe in the 17th and 18th centuries. But the. fact of the'm atter is
that slavery went on since man first got himself organised into com-
munities. Near-East Arabs: started.,(and continued) the Afriean slave-
trade years before and after the. European, andithe slaved'were marched
from the West ca6st of Africa through the most barren ofi. gl-. African.
areas (that just south of the Sahara desert) 2,000 miles to ports' on the
Red Sea, In the Middle Ages, in Europe the peasant was as mach a slave
as any Negro in the West Indies, and when. his master Sir Thisor Mr So-
and-sco. EKquire went to war. from England to France, how many'of the Lords
died in battle (empanoplied. in armour, on their horse). compared to the
poor peons who. made up the foot soldiers? And when a >battle was lost
what happened to the infantry? No prisoners taken (.eXpensive business
housing and feeding someone'else's army) so they were either killed
or enslaved,. When labour was wanted on West Indian plantations in the
17th century, the gap of skilled artisans was filled by convicts as
slaves from England or France: when you could be hung for stealing a
loaf of bread, think what an enslaved'life the working class of Englandl
lived in those days. The Industrial Revolution broke some of the
fetters of that- ckss but still left them as "wage-slavesl working 16 or
more hours a day, seven days a week,..for the price of. a loaf of bread.
So with that foundation we come tb the real reason for the position,
of the black man in.the Western World, Since his ancestors were uproot-
e.d and sola( (by their .own.blach. master-.) from Africa, the black man has
been the working class of America and- the Caribbean. Now along with *
Irishmen and Pakistanis he is becoming the working class of England,
The old English working class whose forebears sweated their way through
and up. from the Industrial Revolution are now middle or.even upper class
--and the last thing they want is for the new working class to rise
"above their station in life". Landladies 'in. Britain do not refuse as
lodgers West Indians just on their colour, they do it because: they
equate coloured persons with working class (and they, the landla@die' are
a "cut above' that class, they think). Educated (i.e. non-working class
coloured people) seldom have any trouble, certainly not when once their
class is recognized,
In the' same way, ten or fifteen years ago .the artisan or clerical "
Dominican looked down on his; working class brother and called' him nigger
(occasionally today I have heard educated light coloured people with.a
black grandparent, say "you'll never get any 'good work out of a nigger",).)
Only fbrty years ago, the same attitude dould, be observed among the upper-
middle classes 4.n England towards the working classs, But class barrier fell
in World War II, since rationing improved the nutrition of all regardless
of wealth, so that the post-war generation grew up healthy, tall and
strong: a. a. high-standard universal education with plenty of opportuAlty
for further education brought the working class up to such skills an@
social opportunity that a new working class had to be created for the old
one to look down.upon: West Indians and Pakistanist
The ,same process goes: on.or has.gone on in the United States. in
.the last century in the New England States the Irish (after the potato
famine),ithen" the Poles ('Polacks'), Hungarians ('Hunkies') and. Italians
..('Wops');'became the working las's to allo '.the Germans, Scots and North
country folks to move-'up. Now in Western'America the Mexicans are the
working class, in New York City, Newark, Baltimore and Philadelphia the

Extracts from the ST.EITTS "DBMOCIRT

SCourt of Appeal on Wednesday upheld
a previous decision of Justice A..
Louisy and delivered a split decision in favour
of the Antigua TIMES Newspaper in a con-
roversial Newspaper Law Case.
In banding down the decision, Acting
Chief Justice Sir Percival Lewis and Justice
E. St. Bernard agreed (a) that the TIMES
Newspaper had a right under the Constitution
to go to the Court for redress, (b) that the
Newspaper Legislation of 1971 was unconsti-
tutional on the grounds that the legislation
violated the fundamental rights of freedom of
speech, (c) that the legislation on the face of.
it was inhibitory as it imposed restrictions on
the fundamental rights of freedom of speech,
(d) that the Appellant, the Antigua Govern-
ment, failed to satisfy the Court that the
legislation was reasonably required, and
therefore the said legislation was repugnant
to the Constitution and ultra vires, and (e)
that the requirement of a bond of $10,000 was
ndt shown to be reasonably required under
Section 10 (2) of the Constitution, and there-
fore such a bond was unconstitutional.
Mr. Justice St. .Bernard said in his
judgement, "There can be no permit with
respect to the exercise of the fundamental
rights under the Constitution of the State."
The Inter American Press Association
(IAPA) which had come to St. Kitts to request
this Government to rescind its Press and
Publications Bill, and liad earlier this year
condemned the state of press freedom in St.
Kitts, had also requested the Antigua Gov-
ernment to rescind its amendment after com-
plaints that the amendment violated the basic
principals of press freedom, but their advice
went unheeded.
The Antigua Minister of Home' Affairs,
Mr. Donald Halstead had appealed against a
ruling in mid-1972 of Mr. Justice A. Louisy
after the Antigua Times Newspaper had chal-

for all freedom seeking people everywhere
where governments feel that the *"Legialataur
is the Highest Court in the land", and thaI
they can best direct the affairs of Stae by
muzzling the Press and by instituting other
repugnant and repressive legislation.
Recognising the fact that all new legisla,
tion should be reasonably required and that
such legislation should not be ultra vires thc
Constitution of the State, we again call on
the Government.:" of St. Kitts to repeal its
Press and Publications Act, 1971.
