Trials and Trini-lations

"Boscoe Holder, a black Trinidad dancer who was in London at the time, says, 'When I heard about this X guy I thought, "There goes one of our con men." And I wished him well, because he was in England, and because they told me he was Trinidadian.' It was the West Indian attitude; the jester was recognized and accepted as a jester, but was otherwise kept at a distance."

-- from Michael X and the Black Power Killings, in Trinidad in The Return of Eva Peron with the Kilings in Trinidad by V.S. Naipaul, Vintage Books/Random House, New York, 1981, pg 33.
