My Mounties tribute. It won't mean much to anybody who has not watched "Due South" on the tele though.
Maybe because those leaders you mentioned haven't painted themselves as being 'moral warriors'. Indeed, they've been painted as immoral [rightly or wrongly] so they are immunised against the need to atone for their wrongs. Trudeau however comes across as hypocritical on this and other issues [there was a MeToo issue involving him too]
I pity such people.... to have lived lives so bereft of goodness.
I wonder what has shifted though? When Ralph Northam was found to have worn blackface [at a date further back than 2001] there were folks arguing he should resign on here.
Or is it because it is Trudeau? And he's a good looking man maybe? Or have we got sick of blackface being used to label folks racist? I might be remembering it wrong but didn't Sarah Silverman recently reject criticism of her for employing it in her act?
Was it the birds or the President under the napkin?
I've got half a dozen Canadian hockey jerseys, I'll lend you one
Like I said - taking a leaf out of our Dear Leader's playbook.
Nothing wrong with being ill informed, getting it wrong, making stupid mistakes or lying.
Get with the times.
Both. Here is the apparently proper (if illegal) way of eating the poor little songbird:
When I saw the picture I imagined he'd gone to the party dressed as a coal miner in masonic regalia. Isn't it strange how others conclude differently.
Trudeau has form. He was blacking up at school.
Well, the poll is pretty much unaninmous - must be the first time all posters are in agreement.
Why is it being described as 'brownface'? Whenever anyone does this it is usually called blackface even if the perp looks brown. I don't think Trudeau should resign but you can see the media/press trying to diminish what he did.
If the Elephant Man was still alive he'd be triggered by that image - have you no sensitivity?
Maybe it's a generational thing but I find all blackface people look the same to me.
Coming here stealing our sparkly top hats, chasing white women around 1960s TV studios..
I believe it's because the party he was attending was an 'Arabian Nights' themed one... and so his tanning efforts were to mimic the skin tone of a Middle East resident...
In the racial categorisation Black = African or of African descent, Brown = anyone not white who isn't from Africa [except Oriental Asians who are a bit problematic].
Come on... we know the script...
*check hierarchy of social justice* That isn't valid because white people aren't an oppressed group! OMG you utter bigot.
You jinked it... soon after you posted one contrarian voted yes!
It was a fancy dress parry F F S.
How ridiculously sensitive some folk are..................the world is full of snowflakes of all 100 genders (according to BBC).
The world has gone completely mad!
C'est moi. There's plenty he should resign for, not just this.
