Guadaloupe: class struggle and colonial ideology of racism today.


"First, there is a misallocation of resources. 15% de la population détiennent presque toutes les richesses du pays. 15% of the population hold almost all the country's wealth. Donc, les 85% de la population survivent avec des bas salaires ou de l’assistance sociale. Thus, 85% of the population survive on low wages or social assistance. Seulement 10% des fonctionnaires ont un contrat de type A ou B. "

"On the one hand, we saw members of the collective LKP,(UNION) followed by local politicians and parliamentarians. Ils sont de teint noir ou métissé. They are dyed black or mixed. De l’autre côté, on observait les représentants du patronat et de l’Etat qui étaient surtout des blancs. On the other hand, there were representatives of employers and the State were mostly white. Le même phénomène pouvait être observé lors de la rencontre d’un millier de grands ou moyens patrons dont la grande majorité était des békés (« blancs pays ») ou des métropolitains. The same phenomenon could be observed at the meeting of a thousand ways large and patrons whose great majority were békés ( "white country") or metropolitan."

"..through this movement, the people of Guadeloupe is struggling to raise his head, not to be sub-human, for the Guadeloupe to access to positions of responsibility according to its competence. En effet, selon Domota, la majorité des Guadeloupéens est exclue de tout. Indeed, as home automation, the majority of Guadeloupean is not everything. Les services de l’Etat et les grandes entreprises sont dirigés par des métropolitains ou des « békés ». State departments and large enterprises are run by metropolitan or "békés.(Whites) Seulement deux ou trois Guadeloupéens (non békés) sont chefs de service à l’ASSEDIC, à l’ANPE, à l’ADII, à la CGSS. Only two or three Guadeloupean (not békés) (Non White)are heads of service"

"Most Guadeloupean, issue of African and Indian communities have no access to the field of political and financial power of the country."

"Despite the abolition of slavery in 1848 and the alleged release of colonization (departmentalization) in 1946, the social structure has not changed, the same social relations persist between the ruling classes and the dominated classes."

"Do we really need the presence of the "white father" for good behavior?"(Popular vision in Guadaloupe of french politicians)
