Part II C 0 M MEN T by Rupert Sorhaindo,
Let us bring our minds back to 1969, in which yea Mr. Rosie Douglas
and two other Dominicans became involved in the ra1r well"-publicized
"Sir George Williams University Affair".. According to Mr. Patrick John
the beginnings of our racial troQuble; can be trace 'to that incident.
Mr. John may well remember that year; so may Mr. LBlanc, Mr. Armour aU4
Mr. Leo Austin. The Labour-Government had hastily dispatched Mr. AustiA
to Canada. to investigate.. Mr. Jennrer Armour accompanied the Attorney
General. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Armour advertised the establishment of
a legal assistance fund for "Brother-in-law" Rosiq? (In contract, one has
to wonder what measures were taken by the. Attorney General and Mr. Armour,
to ensure that innocent Dominicans were not brutal zed by trigger-happy
Police and Defence Force Personnel during our ridiculous State of Emergen g
As it turned out, the interest of Government. in the "Sir George

Brother Rosie and the Black Power Movement opposed,, the Grenada Declarat.ioa,
ROPA, writing in the EDUCATOR rebuked Rosie for his ingratitude.
Mr. LeBlanc and his Labour Party colleagues recognised the fledglaln-
Black Power Movement as a force that was politically exploitable. It was
not viewed -a a, apoteatially constructive force. which would need honest au
level-headed leadership.
If we look back at the "Black Power" speeches made by Mr. LeBlanc
during the 1969-1973 period, we see a man projecting himself as a "leade:"
(albeit an apparently irresponsible .and detached leader) of the fledgling
,Black Power Movement. His racist remarks about "b~ood-sucking clermine:j

Brothers application for permission to conduct ar.imas_ he po-q -~s--

The Premietr's readiness to exploit the SMA crisis was an attempt V

And if, as Mr. John has broadcast, the situation Vis-a-vis race relatiocs
in the State is deplorable, then Mr. LeBlano and his Gabinet must acce;c
the responsibility.
The rest of the Labour Party machinery must also take a share cof e
blame for our deteriorating social environment. Tha EDUCATOR, with it+
emphasis on hate-mongering, has so often tried to d3aw a wedge between slack
and white, rich and poor, educated and non-educated, that it must be cited
as a major contributor to disharmony in the Statef 1ot too long ago, r-

and against dark-skinned Dominicans such as Brother Egbert Germain.
We should also cite, at this point, "Brother Vie" Riviere, one of the
original Black Power "leaders" who, back in the late sixties encouraged
the type of Black Power which was more negative and retrogressive than
positive and progress. (ocue on reoave t)an

!'!H WORD PRIEST ... 1ugh Lawrence
So-r*e people, I think, are apt to
misconstrue the word. Priest, sometimes
for the .purpose of misleading their
followers and listeners or perhaps
through ignorance. We have in the-
. State at present a great number of -
so-called preachers in several small
religious groups, who usually mislead
their members to satisfy their own
ends, ..As we.'are now .in the season .
of Lent, we shall be hearing very
r often of sermons and-talks re the
suffering and crucifixion of our
Lord, and also the words 'high Priest6
who took a great part in this in-
famous act,
I shall now try to define the
real meaning of the word Priest.
A priest is one whose function is',to
offer sacrifices, and before Christ
came and during His short stay, the
sacrifices offered were from the
blood of animals. He did not condemn
His, Father ii work, but He perfected. -
it, so that He. died on the .Cross for
the sijnsof _man, and-.then lev-i- His
apostles to continue the same- sacri-
fice in the form of bread and. wine.
This is continually done in our
Mother Church and in the Anglican
Church in our State and.all over the
world. Therein lies the MYfSTIQUE.

opportunity .to apply for owner-
oecupation home lo-ans with repayment

may ,also provide medium/long term
finance (say up to 10 or 12 years)

projectss: Barfincor may offer to -

DEAR AUNATY Letter No..7
Aunty, what is it about a deputy
makes.. then all so uppity?
is it deputy-mentality,
or merely the proximity
to Premiers posterity?
IS it a. measure of naivety
that leads to the pomposity
and overall calamity
as deputy's ability
proves less than his capacity, .
makes; him a liability,
and leads to a facility
for exits with mobility?
OR, and more's the pity,
is it Premier's propensity
to shelter with dexterity
behind a Dep's vulgarity
or maybe gross rapacity -
thus. keep his personality
free from animosity.
enhance his credibility,
when he drops a Deputy
for misuse of authority
and offense to at majority?
- --r-a--- --4-6-
Such is Prqmier's sagacity,
and proven durability,
Deputies may get priority
but Premien has superiority,
and incredible audacity
to taunt uq with invisibility;
he moves, width rare agility
to prove h#- own virility,
some wisdoq- and divinity
sustains tlh old nobility,
makes, it a4. impossibility.
for even a Vfringe minority
to be swayed by Dep IDOLATRY. the Deity,
branding with anonymity,
Prims keeps popularity
and some reppectability,
while treating as absurdity
the wild desire and vanity,
the disguise and duality,
the anxious amorality,
the vacant Versatility,
the fickle flexibility,
the singular venality,
the total iRsularity,
the hasty personality,
the arrogant stupidity,
the itches and cupidity,
of anyone with temerity
who would become a Deputy,

* *
Au.ity,, notice their partiality
for verbal bellicosity,
while masking their identity
in journalese triviality
and pseudonymity.
Devoid of generosity
Sense or Sensibility
or any authenticity;
loaded with ambiguity,
,crassness and scurrility;
the lack of selectivity,
denotes insensivity,
and complex insecurity,
a general inferiority,
a blatant banality
and basic disingenuity,
also mental sterility,
a constant insxucerity,
a penchant for atrocity,
grievous in totality.
Thus the rampant mediocrity
that plagues the society,
seeped in negativity,
Proclaims their instability.
0 4 *
Anaty, seen f2 its fiali ty
it would seem to be an -abnormality
to bestow slight sympathy
On an. ambitious Deputy
who intent on immortality
is beset by Prims complexity
and partisan hostility;
who fond of false formality,
and prone to elasticity,
falls, victim of duplicity,
WOE betide the next Deputy
who abuses hospitality,
and poaches on Prims-.territory.

After a spell of sunshine, the
rains. came. Ma Titine, busily dusting
the furniture in her living-room was.
at the. same time thinking of Reuben.
Although she had laid her cards on.
the table, Reuben still insisted on
being lover-like and Ma Titine, being
a warm--blooded human being and not a
