But why Arnik?
as I said before man that is an argument that does not stand up to scrutiny. there is pretty much a new westindian world since 1960-61. Hunter and dem just hold up dat crap to justify what deh are doing.
Viv and Richie, Clarvis Joseph as vp under Rosseau, were all the same. deh are all small-minded, ignorant and stupid blac men keeping back westindian progress in a mighty way .
by 1961 the westindies were well on the way to the current level of indpendence it now has. it aint much but at least there is a bit of room. what dat accommplished was putting direct white control of institutions like cricket to rest,,bringing them into blac hands.
all the grievances listed by the dottys from decades past were perpetrated by white men in charge of westindies cricket..not blac men..not a black westindies which only now exists. in fact it is worrell who started the ball rolling to their full inclusion..a movement which Lloyd completed.
the state of westindies cricket since 1961 a year before independence began to be granted to the region blac official and administrative power began to grow and was responsible for the inclusion of the full westindies region into selectoral consideration.
it is not a fully new world but it is different enough from the old world to make any and all insular agurment as justification for current Dotty bullshit moot...irrelevant nonsense
on fuller examination deh have no damm case. blac/brown men in charge of the westindies now..a black/brown westindian world that sis not exist back in the day. and blac men did not exdclude them in the old days for blac men had no control of cricket then.
the battle to get a blac man appointed as captain was won only in 1960. blac men only began to be chief ministers and prime ministers back then as well.
prior to that it was all colonial... and blac men/indo men had no say at all. deh opened up deh mout' in support of anything progressive and it was jail in deh rass.
the governors and colonial administrations were manifestly unsympathethic to such sentiment. and the white men who controlled the then wicbc did as they pleased
