Get The New York Times to remove its disrespectful article about Guyana and its people

The New York Times published an article on Friday July 20, 2018 which contained derogatory comments about Guyana and Guyanese. The article, 'The $20 Billion Question for Guyana,' was written by Clifford Krauss and was unfortunately passed off as good journalism. One particularly disrespectful, offensive and erroneous claim made by the writer was that: "A vast majority of college-educated youths emigrate to the United States or Canada, while those who stay behind experience high rates of H.I.V. infection, crime and suicide." Given this and other narrowly drawn conclusions which reflect a poor analysis of Guyana and its people, we wish to have The New York Times pull this story from its website, and issue an apology to the Guyanese people for this absurdity.
