So, if you call it brownface instead of blackface and apologize in English and French, that makes everything alright. Got it.

Many years ago, laws were passed where white minstrel players were not allowed to wear black face because it deprived African Americans of acting jobs. I half-way understand it even though it is unconstitutional.

But, are libs saying to me that if I want to go to a Halloween costume party that I cannot wear black face if wanted to go as Mohammad Ali? 
Like... WHY??

Believe me, I have a lot more going against me trying to be Mohammad Ali than my skin color. :D  It's all a bunch of BS

Okay so I have been talkin here in Canada with a few coworkers of different ethnicity and  nobody got offended. Some were saying that we're flattered as they think Justin Trudeau wanted to get into their skin and be one of them. However what I find mostly disturbing is seeing that whites are the most outraged of all. 

Of course it's all just electoral bulshit. I'm pretty sure whoever came up with these photos has a well determine purpose and that is not too affect Justin's political campaign but to gauge its effect on the right fascist movement wing existent. In other words if Justin gets more votes after this scandal it means Canada is ready to shut down immigration.

That is the problem of white people mostly. One side, the right, has learned nothing from the past, and the other, the left, pushes a utopian system of appologizing for everything and creating thereby a dictatorship where freedoms are undermind.

There is no center anymore. We are all different and same at the same time and should treat all people equal regardless of religion, race or nationality.

We need a party of the center. Right and left are equaly bad for our rights, obligations and freedoms.

Is it in bad taste?...yes...is bad taste against the law?....no

The determination needs to be if it was meant to be disrespectful and that comes from observing behaviour while in costume...but also doing it while leaving hyper-sensitivity at home.

The New Statesman thinks it's Canada that has a problem....

"The Justin Trudeau blackface scandal shows Canada must confront its race problem.

"A supposed multicultural haven has long tolerated quiet bigotry."

Yes, Canada has a problem with racism. But, here is how Canadian act when they see racism:

Harper. I voted for him twice and I would have voted for him again if he did not try to use a page from Trumpism. Trudeau won just for this reason. Canadians are mostly center. Not hardcore right or left. That is why we have majority governments. We vote for the candidate not for the party lines. And it looks like Sheer will win this time. Likely he will get my vote. He cleaned up his party and got rid of racists and bigots for the most part.

One more thing. IF Sheer wins in Canada, Trump will lose in USA. Gotta have balance.

That's because we have been thoroughly educated about the inappropriateness of black face make-up.  The only reason the people you talked to aren't offended is because idiots the world over will excuse wrongdoing by their  favorite politician.  Don't believe me, dress like Trudeau did and go talk to those people  who weren't offended.  Tell them you just wanted to get into their skin and be one of them.

I see all the facets of the situation here and ppl. Can easily get offended but I belive there's an exaggeration. Let me ask a question;

Will someone say being racist dress up and face paint the same colours he or she hates? I don't think so, it'll be contradictory to their values. Justin dressed up his whole family and staff in indian clothing during his visit in India. The man is a chameleon in a sense he wants to embed himself into other cultures and nationalities. 

He is accused of racism just because this.is how ppl can be fooled by clever manipulators. 

Ppl from his entourage declared that Justin is not a racist and everything he did was to fight, he doesn't have a darker side. He is just too nice and soft to admit a guilt he hasn't done.

If I was him I simply would have said : I face painted mysel in solidarity to all minorities present at the event.

Ppl are ridiculous having pushed this too far, seriously. I am more concerned of the minorities considering a white man face painting, racist rather than the opposite. 

I have recently heard of a nails saloon in toronto hiring just black ppl under the specific that whites cant paint Neil's. The owner was proudly speaking at cbc radio about it. Well let me tell you that is truly racial profiling and labour law violations. That is concerning!

I think you are wrong about what racists would do but Trudeau may have just wanted to have some fun being different.  Who knows what was going through his mind, no one but him or anyone he may have told.  But yes, racists might dress up and paint their faces to make fun of the people they fear/hate.

Thanks for the post Eldorado, always good to see the leader of a country acting like a moron. I think it's the PCP he sprinkles on his free government weed that turned him into a far left socialist. :w00t:

Trudeau is unfit to govern

Apparently, Justin Trudeau has no shame. If Canada's prime minister had even a sense, let alone a mature understanding of the word, he would have resigned after his past racist acts were revealed. But maturity is not a word that I have ever associated with Trudeau. At his core, he has always struck me as a pampered, rich kid who enjoys the intoxicating adulation and attention that comes with playing a charming celebrity politician on TV and the international stage.

Netflix has a show called Patriot Act that did a segment on Trudeau.  It was very interesting.  (each episode is 20 minutes).

I see the Socialist Democraps are trying to influence the election in Canada as well. :tu:

Obama endorses Justin Trudeau days before Canadian election

Former President Obama endorsed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, just days before Canadians go to the polls on Monday. Photos of Trudeau from years ago dressed in blackface and brown-face were released last month, casting a shadow over his campaign in the tight race. "I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President," wrote Mr. Obama in a tweet. "He's a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term."

There were racists and bigots in the party? I did early voting this year, voted PC. I decided not to split the vote and help the PC's get as many seats as possible - it's the only way they will be able to make meaningful change without a constantly deadlocked parliament. 

The PC's will make a big change in our handicapped oil market/production. The downside is that Scheer is very vocal about going to war with Iran and supporting Israel. In other words, he's another "good goy".

Maybe. At least he won't be greeting Trump with a weak handshake. It will be nice to have a grown man back in charge.

I don't know much about him, really. Young, handsome, dashing and debonair, he seems quite the ladies man.
