Subject: Black face
So Canada’s PM is shown in picture dressed as Arab wearing brown face. Frankly, I don’t see the issue. People have been dressing up for costume parties forever. Now I guess you can’t dress up like an Indian or Mexican or black person or Arabian. I saw an old video of Eddie Murphy made to like like a white dude. I found it amusing despite the stereotypes. Kay Ivey, Alabama governor, had to apologize for wearing blackface in college over 50 years.

We live in a world now where if you tell a joke that stereotypes someone you are a racist or bigot. So if I say, “Whenever you have 4 Irishmen, there’s a fifth.” Does that mean I don’t like the Irish? I don’t even know any Irishmen!

Oh well, I guess if someone wants to be offended, I can’t stop them.

“Let’s be careful out there”*


* Bonus point if you can name the 80s tv cop show that started with that line in the opening scene every episode.

Being offended = silliest waste of time ever.

I could not possibly care less about black face, white face, red face, brown face, or who did it or who is offended by it.

a) I am not a Trudeau fan
b) there isn't a politician less racist than Trudeau
c) 99.9% of Canadians don't care
d) he apologized and believe was sincere in saying it was stupid.

BTW, Black face does not have the same significance in Canada.

My bet, he gets sympathy votes for it. I am on the fence on who to vote for in October. If the conservatives made a big deal of this, I'll flip to the Liberals

PS Our conservatives are not nearly as conservative as your republicans, Our liberals are very moderate by your standards.

The problem, marcag, is that the liberals have ruled that Blackface makes you a racist....unless, of course. you happen to be liberal and then it doesn't. We saw that with the Va. Governor down here. Unfortunately, Trudeau is gonna have to.......uh.....wear it.
