Another "O Canada"...

Reader comment on item: Why Corporations Fund Radical Islam

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Sep 6, 2005 at 17:11

I believe the submission to Islamists by Canadians happens frequently and repeatedly (perhaps more so than in the United States.) We have schools here that teach the Multi-culti dance....it's our national past-time...A year or so ago the CBC featured a program on (GASP!!) Racism... A person (she referred to herself as a "brown person") gave a "talk" (i believe she was funded and sponsored by an Ontario school system) to a group of grade school students. She excoriated all whites as "racists" and gave elaborate details about how (when growing up in racist Canada) she attempted to make herself "white" (this was through skin bleaches, and when this didn't work, she tried drinking lots of milk.) If an alien had dropped in and listened to the program, the alien would probably have wondered, "Why? Is Canada an apartheid state? Do they lynch 'brown people'? Does Canada endorse racist policies?"

I really began to wonder what "white" people had done to this "brown person" -- but I never heard what her complaint was...just that she was obsessed with being a "brown person" who hated whites...(and apparently wished to express her hatred to our grade-school children.) Eventually the CBC "report" had a group of people ("brown people" I guess) discuss the racism in Canada. One self-identified "brown person" claimed that she once went into a store and the clerk (I'm quoting here): "Looked at me funny." Ah, yes...that must be IT!!! It's to be "looked at funny" -- O the horror -- (I half suspect the "brown person" might have been wearing one of those burkas -- thus the "He looked at me funny"...especially if you're in Saskatchewan.. rural Saskatchewan...yeah, that just might provoke a "look." Anyway, we in Canada are especially sensitive to any supposed "grievance" no matter how trivial -- we've been taught to act this way...(but of course we don't expect the same from the "brown people.")
