The situation in Venezuela and the numerous refugees coming to our shores naturally has people talking, and some of it is quite frankly disgusting.
Given where I work, I am in the vicinity of the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain on a regular basis. I have seen people dropping off carloads of food and water to the Venezuelans, which truly gives me immense pride in our country.
However, I have also seen an alarming negative side. On numerous occasions, drivers would pass by the Venezuelans waiting to register and spit, yell racial slurs and sometimes even throw garbage from their cars at them. I also saw a post about the Venezuelan woman who was murdered last weekend. It was vicious and inhumane. Is this who we really are?
