    Not finding a black man but a past west indian cricketer. What happen to Ambrose and others. We never like giving our own a chance and on another note most of the time we respect outsiders than our own so perhaps it is best this way.

    Not a matter of race people. The question is are people of Afro Caribbean origin educating themselves befitting such positions? The WI president and board need to be tried before a Caribbean court of patriots for their role in the demise of the most glorious team the world has ever seen. We need to stop seeing race. We must love and unite with a common purpose for the West Indies to achieve beyond imagination in every aspect of life as we know it.
