If it’s not race, it’s na­tion­al­ity. When will we stop shoot­ing our­selves in the foot?

The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

I com­pletely dis­agree that Saint Lucia is not a black nation. As black is the ma­jor­ity of the pop­u­la­tion, that qual­i­fies it as a black nation. Why should Saint Lucia not be con­sid­ered a black nation? My un­der­stand­ing is that a nation is based on the ma­jor­ity race of peo­ple. Can we say that Eng­land or France are not white na­tions be­cause they have a mixed race of peo­ple liv­ing there? I think not and, fur­ther­more, they will never ac­cept it. Saint Lucia is about 85 per­cent black and if we are not con­sid­ered a black nation then what are we?. – Os­mond Dun­can
