Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

Oh bu**er. These were supposed to be totally random colours. No catholic/protestant or loyalist/republican connotations were intended.

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

Please excuse the simplistic nature of this post, but I am doing it to try and make a point.

Imagine a town where half the people are green and half the people are orange. Half the tall people...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

I like that! I was going to say to Oldbag that in her situation racism is a probably a misnomer because small town Canada is predominantly white Caucasian, many of British descent. But I like your...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

It is certainly horrendous as Morwenna said. It is stupid, ignorant, bigoted, small minded and intolerant. It is also not typical of the Canada I have experienced. However, unless you are a...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

The Coast Salish (The First Nation on the West Coast) had no concept of personal possessions in their traditional culture. Everything belonged to the tribe.

Every year they held a ceremony called...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! That was meant to be funny, wasn't it? Genocide is, of course, the answer to most problems. More fool the lily livered Canadians.

I also do agree that Hollywood is a...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

I think you are wrong here. the First Nations are aboriginal people - the first humans to settle the land after the ice retreated.

Not that it would matter. Even if they had displaced a race of...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

No, there isn't one voice, which doesn't help. There is the Assembly of First Nations but I don't think it even claims to speak for all. I also don't think there is a one-size-fits-all solution. ...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

I think you are very close to the heart of an important issue. The school system is designed to produce functioning and economically valuable citizens. If you think that, regardless of educational...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

The treatment of the First Nations is a real and continuing blemish on Canada’s history and place in the world.

The starting point is that this is their land. They have lived here, uninterrupted,...

Re: How do you deal with the racism in Canada?

I am sure the First Nations think there is a lot of racism in Canada, and I can't say I blame them one bit.
