Reject racism in all its forms

THE EDITOR: Seventy-two years ago, the disintegrating corpse of Philbert Peyson, better know as “ Bumper,” was found floating off the Trinidad Yacht Club. At first, the employee who discovered Bumper thought it was the body of a white man as several days’ immersion at sea had stripped off most of his skin and a black person’s flesh is as white as that of a Caucasian.

Yes folks, our skin and hair coverings conceal the same white flesh and red blood of every single one of us. So, it is high time we reject racism and all of its negative assumptions and beliefs going forward. What is really important is the content of our hearts, minds and souls.
