For real though like, blackface is racist af. But where is this level of anger and outrage when his policies have literally killed people, or punished them for being people of color?
Yeah honestly was surprised to see so many leftists still hold him in high esteem up until now?
I mean in general Canada gets a lot of benefit of the doubt from Americans despite also engaging in genocide and the like.
@Bashabez5 it's crap, but optics. Blackface you can literally see the racism in a photo. It's all about plausible deniability. "We were very responsible with how we built the pipelines, who knew the pipes would leak."
@kamiten thats a good point, hard to point out the racism in "well candian first nations women being sterilized is appalling and we will do something about it!" *Nothing is done*
@Bashabez5 literally out of -sight- out of mind. "I'm not responsible for their doctors but someone should do something" and the follow through is gone.
@Bashabez5 I could be wrong but I suspect that a lot of Definite Experts on Racism™ are busy paying attention to specific individual actions that people are doing. If a prime minister personally does something abhorrent and bigoted, he finally becomes racist, but if he is just signing off on laws and policy documents and executive orders without actually wielding the guns and bulldozers that kill people and ruin their livelihoods, he's just doing his job
@Bashabez5 go off
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
