Anger in Paradise

Anger continues to bubble and boil across the world. This story could get repeated all through the Caribbean if mood continues to deteriorate as I fear it will:

Britons flee French island of Guadeloupe as rioters turn on white families
by Mail Foreign Service, The Daily Mail
Britons are among thousands of tourists fleeing Guadeloupe after full scale urban warfare erupted on the French Caribbean island. Trouble broke out on the island earlier last month after protesters began rioting over high prices and low wages.

But the situation escalated this week after protesters began turning on rich white families as they demanded an end to colonial control of the economy...

Us vs. Them is quite possibly the most basic herding instinct present in mammals. Think about that...
