DP condemns ‘racial antics’ in parliament

St. Maarten News – Leader of the Democratic Party (DP) Sarah Wescot-Williams has condoned racial comments in parliament and is calling for leaders of political parties to speak out. “Call it whatever you want, but I cringe every time I hear Members of Parliament (MPs), who think it’s the popular thing to do, in parliament express the kind of exclusionary language we are hearing from these MPs more and more,” Wescot-Williams said in a press statement issued Sunday. “Exclusionary language being the language of “they against we”, while these MPs never clearly define who are the ‘we’ and who are the ‘they.’ In fact anytime they try this, these Members of Parliament wiggle themselves more and more into the proverbial quicksand.”
