Heal Guyana member, Phillip Williams, shares a few casual phrases that many of us as Guyanese express among ourselves during our everyday conversations. Whether or not we are aware, these seemingly harmless statements are extremely racist and they serve to keep our society trapped in a collective mindset where our people are divided and our circumstances never improve.
Starting with Ourselves.
Take the necessary steps from today to breakaway from these destructive expressions and behavior patterns. Racism hurts everyone and as long as we continue to fight among ourselves, we will remain vulnerable to all forms of external manipulations and political influences which seek to benefit from keeping us distracted from the real issues, relating to Guyana's development.
Heal Guyana is a registered, not-for-profit organisation which functions as a civil society platform that focuses on empowering Guyanese and influencing citizens toward positive behavior change.
