Bahamas: Racism in Politics?

At, guest commentator Bruce G. Raine weighs in on what he calls the Bahamian government's “promoting a fear of white people” and the resulting alienation of those who contribute to the island's economic mainstay – tourism.

    Pride and nationality are different from racism. Yes, it is true that foreigners come into the Bahamas and mistreat Black Bahamians. And when certain politicians fight for and standup for Bahamians, then the reverse psychology is used.

    Many Bay Street Boys and Conkey Joe Bahamians have a history of RACISM and it is time that Politicians and concerned West Indians start standing against IMPERIALISM and RACISM against Black Caribbean residents!!!!

  • Black on Black racism is actually a problem as well.
    We have been in charge of our own destiny since 1973, please forgive me if I don’t get caught up in your “Imperialism” discussion.
