Oh, Klanada? Racial Segregation At Toronto’s York Uni!
When I was a little lad on the farm in Perth County, Ontario, getting to church meant a half hour drive into town….
In the deep snows of winter this was not always practical, but on most summer Sundays, in we went.
Among the other congregants were a black family, and I’m pretty sure they were they only black people in town. Nobody referred to them as ‘black,’ of course.
‘Coloured’ was the fashionable term, had been for years, and remained so until ‘black’ became the trendy word. Exactly what the PC in-crowd currently dictates I’m not sure.
‘Afro-American?’ In Canada, ‘Afro-Canadian?’
We often now hear the cumbersome, rather ridiculous ‘people of colour’ – it’ll be back to ‘coloured’ soon!
Anyway, the point of today’s trip down Memory Lane is the fact that in the Canada of the halcyon Diefenbaker Era…
Dief the Chief
….non-white people were certainly a small minority – especially in small-town Ontario! – but everyone got along just fine, without equality commissars to bully us.
All were Canadians. Why wouldn’t they be welcome in our church, or indeed our home when they came round for a mid-week social? The idea of segregation was foreign to us.
Not any more, according to the news from Toronto…
Campus racist poster
…where good old ( founded 1959) York University is hosting a first aid training session only for black students!
And where normal sane Canadians who object to such racist imbecility are accused by nasty black fanatics of “anti-black racism.”
The racist bigots belong to a gang calling itself the York United Black Students’ Alliance.
The CPR poster would have gladdened the hearts of the KKK, all those Imperial Wizards and Grand Dragons of the Ku Klux Klan!
As one normal student observed –
– “My attention was brought to this poster because I was actually interested in getting my recert[ification] in first aid. It’s a skill everyone should know. Apparently my skin color is an issue though..”
No need to comment further on the advance of the apartheid mind-set in Ontario.
We await demands for the installation of separate drinking fountains.
Or demands by trannies for unisex toilets, one each for blacks and whites, where perverted predators of each separate racial group can prowl for victims with egalitarian ease!
