Hello. I saw you made a substantial addition to this article regarding the Dual system of control. Could you please provide a reference for where you found this information? Cheers --LukeSurl t c 21:59, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
- Done. I'm not a fan of this system myself and have never actually seen it, but it does exist in the U.S., believe it or not. —KuyaBriBriTalk 23:21, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

My edits are very valid. Being a person who has in depth knowledge of what took place in those islands because I am from there I know that coolie should not be classed as slavery whatsoever. Coolies should be classed as Indentured Labourers. Coolieism took place after Slavery was abolished and that is a fact. Also the word coolie means wages or hireling. I have sources below. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/136194/coolie http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/research-guides/indian-indentured-labour.htm http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/11/25/247166284/a-history-of-indentured-labor-gives-coolie-its-stinghttp:
Coolies were given wages, land, and houses for their labor. Generally speaking people today are not even given this. I know this for a fact because I am from these island and the people there were indeed paid. This resulted in a lot of jealousy and anger from African slaves towards coolies and perhaps rightfully so. Indian coolies were paid about $45 dollars a day plus food and clothing.

Second the etymology for coolie is hired laborer or wages. And kuli in turkish means hireling. Thank you and I will get back to you with more changes. I am from these islands and the original article so falsely misrepresents coolies. Many people of Indian and Chinese background took exception to this article because they knew that a lot of the subject matter in the original article was false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Richey90211 (talk • contribs) 06:13, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
- If you have a specific request for me please state it, otherwise I will not respond further. —KuyaBriBriTalk 15:04, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Please change the category for the article from Slavery to Indentured Laborer. Please change quli in turkish from slave to hireling. In Cantonese, the term is 咕 喱 (Jyutping: Gu lei). Please change the word "Asian slave" to "Laborer" unsigned comment added by Richey90211 (talk • contribs) 02:18, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
- You have copied and pasted the comment you posted on Talk:Coolie. I will respond there when I have time, if another editor has not done so already. —KuyaBriBriTalk 02:50, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
More about Joaquín Santiago
Hi, again. You may want to know that the probable-hoax status of Joaquín Santiago (that we discussed some days ago) has been raised by another editor in the BLP Noticeboard and has ultimately resulted in an AFD nomitation. One editor that identifies himself as the son of the article's subject has taken it personally, believing people are calling his father (and not the article) an hoax.
I the end, I believe the article's subject is someone that exists, but it's weird how the article is so full of fake references, that do not seem to back up what's said in the article. And, regardless of the truthfulness of these unreferenced claims, the subject's notability is also disputable. Just in case you're still interested. --damiens.rf 17:34, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
