  1. When you address someone as ‘coolie’ or ‘nigger’, even if you are of the same ancestral heritage, you are presenting them as ‘other’, someone who is not your equal. It takes a big man to apologize! Instead, you weasel your way out and that reflects badly on your professionalism.

  2. I have criticized Guy numerous times because he is a blowhard. However, this time I am firmly in his corner. There is no room in St. Lucia for this low level of behavior, Ferdinand. Your crass and racist outburst demands a full apology. The Labor party must make a statement if it intends to remain credible.
