Dear Editor,

In a book written by Dr. Kean Gibson titled, “The Cycle of Racial Oppression in Guyana”, she theorizes that Indo-Guyanese are using the Hindu caste system from India to oppress Afro-Guyanese.

In the first instance, not all Indians in Guyana are Hindus. A large percentage of Indo-Guyanese are Muslims and some are Christians.

Hinduism and the caste structure had changed with the East Indians who came to the West Indies.

Yours faithfully,

Shawn Greene
