Every Friday this is the scene at First Caribbean Bank on JFK Drive. Asian and Haitian construction labourers on last Friday seen here standing outside the bank trying to cash their cheques. Now we have couple concerns we have with this picture. Why are there separate lines for foreign workers and Bahamian workers at the bank in this country? Is it not discrimination against the workers who should have an equal right to the services at the bank?
This picture reminded us of an incident at a local police station. Where a creole speaking woman entered the station, in tears complaining of how she had to run away from a man who pulled a machete on her and threatening to end her life in her neighbourhood. The woman was left with a scared mark on her hand and neck from the weapon. The police response to her plea was, “Woman try get out here and leave the man alone here?”
Bahamas Press is in no way suggestive here of any support for the overbearing state of the illegal situation in this country, but we wonder why are the people of this country soo DUPLICITOUS when it comes to the treatment of foreign residents, whom they continue to employ Bahamians? Or do we hire them so that SLAVE MASTER mentality can be exercised?
