This Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart is interesting. I had never heard of him before this report.
Some reading reveals that he is:
1) A marine officer of Jamaican descent.
2) A political general, rather than a military/strategic one. Last overseas deployment was Kuwait-Iraq war 1990-91. Since then, has been in Washington hanging around corridors of power.
Remember Al-Quolin Bin Powell al-Trinidadi, who traded in his uniform for the Secretary of State's office and served as a dutiful bag-carrying houseboy for his boss during the run up to Iraq War 2003? He, too, was a very active apologist making excuse after excuse for Pakistan: (they supported the Taliban only to limit Indian influence in Afghanistan, A Q Khan was a one-man proliferation network with no TSPA/ISI involvement, "the past is the past" etc.)
Caribbeans of African descent have a deep-seated hatred of Indians and particularly Hindus. Indians, mostly Hindus, were brought to the Caribbean Islands to live and work alongside the Africans as essentially indentured labour.
The Africans, who had been brought there as slaves, were forced to give up any connection to their native culture or heritage in order to "rise" socially and economically... become more "English" in their behaviour, more "Christian" in their beliefs, surrendering completely to Macaulayization in order to progress beyond the menial labour class. This forced choice was not imposed on the hardworking Indians, who achieved social and economic success in the Caribbean while still remaining true to their Hindu roots and traditions. I strongly believe this is a reason why Caribbean blacks in particular harbor a seething resentment and hatred of Hindus.
RD ji my experience has been similar from talking to some friends from these places. Additional reasons that they quoted were
1. Although Indians were kind of slave too but being indentured they traveled with their families and were not subject to the same atrocities that these blacks were and it was a case of jealous out of other being better in being pathetic.
2. Indians despite of all the odds managed to achieve prosperity in carribbeans, US and everywhere and all the more so in recent past. That too adds to this insecurity/hate. In my experience, some whites despite of being outright racist acknowledge the fact that Indians are good and carribbeans and colored folks find it hard to believe that people from a third world country are coming and taking their jobs, while not realising they or their kids are simply not slogging enough in school.
But yeah only on BRF we get to gangotri or the sea from which water evaporated
