Social change needed in Babados - Sir Hilary Beckles

The Vice Chancellor of the University of the West Indies (UWI) has called for social change in Barbados. Sir Hilary Beckles says blacks continue to be marginalized and warned that the situation cannot continue. 
 
He cautioned that the Barbados society, in its current structure, is not sustainable while speaking during a lecture on slavery and the 1816 rebellion by national hero General Bussa.
     
The Barbadian-born academic described the social structure as one of white supremacy and black marginalization, adding that this economic white supremacy system is subversive to democracy.
