Trinidad & Tobago: Ethnic profiling in the press

Indira takes issue with references to the ethnicity of a couple accused of murder in a headline in the Trinidad Express.


  • I took issue with it as well:

  • The Trinidad Express didn’t deem it necessary to respond. This is how little things become big things. If it’s OK to do this, then it’s OK to do other things, and the importance of that is lost on many people.

    I’ve found this and other things related to it to be unconscionable, at many different levels. Maybe such things don’t matter to Trinis. Maybe that’s why crime is the way it is.
