Minister for Carib Affairs Ashton Graneau says the Kalinago people here are facing racial discrimination, though obscure in some sectors.
According to Graneau many in the sports sector have been victims. “Some of our guys have gone in the cricketing arena, they have been selected for trials, they have played in the trials and if they failed once, then that’s it for them, as compared to some other individuals because they are not Kalinagos,” he disclosed.
However, racial discrimination in the employment sector is not always as obvious, Graneau stated, because more Kalinagos are now “qualified” and employed.
Graneau said he too has been a victim of racial discrimination but recognized the issue was more prevalent in the past.
