An attack against any minority is nothing less than an assault on Canada's democratic values and a threat to our entire society.

And there will probably be more dead bodies on those streets.

The "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va. resulted in violent clashes, scores of injuries and one death.
I want to know who 'they' are and whether they are really so different from 'us.'

Canadians share their thoughts on the racially motivated violence in Charlottesville, Va.
This isn't the first time Canada's Armed Forces have been linked to organized racism.
When they show hate, we will continue to show love. We cannot allow the Conservative party and its hate-inspired identity politics to destroy a vision we continue to build. The people united, will never be defeated.

Trump has undoubtedly emboldened Islamophobes across North America, but Canada has our own history with Islamophobia that we need to talk about. From 2012 to 2014, we saw hate crimes against Muslims in Canada double - and this is all while most of us knew Donald Trump as the host of The Apprentice.
Yusra Khogali has made a habit of directing violent, hateful language towards people with white skin, so much so that I feel comfortable calling her out. When an individual at the helm of what could be a transformative movement distracts the public with hate, it is time for that individual to go.

When disaster strikes and the suspect is depicted as being either Arab or Muslim, the reflexive response is to assume that this was an act of terror driven by radical forms of Islam. But when a white person engages in a terror-plot or act of mass-violence, there is often official reluctance to identify it for what it is: terrorism.

There have been many calls to better understand the white working class voter and placing blame on "political correctness" for what Van Jones dubbed on election night "a whitelash." In other words, that the real problem was that we weren't paying enough attention to straight, white people and shouldn't have been calling for diversity, equality and respect. But arguing that if you just didn't challenge straight white male supremacy then they wouldn't have elected a straight white male supremacist is no different than blaming a rape victim for what she wore, or a gay-bashing victim for kissing his boyfriend, or a Jew for wearing a Star of David necklace.
What's true is violent extremism is a greater threat than terrorism in Canada today. Furthermore, it is supremacist-motivated attacks that make up the majority of violent extremist incidents as the TSAS report articulates. Not surprisingly, supremacist-motivated attacks are hardly ever the focus of media stories.
"I will say it, because I have literally nothing left to lose."

On a continent where people of colour have been, and continue to be, terrorized, dehumanized, brutally murdered and denied basic human rights based on the colour of their skin, a grievance white people have not experienced, white people don't need to come together to lend moral and emotional support for their brethren in the same way people of colour do. So knowing that some racist folks are hell bent on creating "safe" spaces to fight the "tyranny" of multiculturalism, I'm left with only one question: If white people are losing in our country, who the hell is winning?
If we, as white people, cannot completely understand the experience of racism on a daily basis, we can try to position ourselves as allies in the combat against racism. As Darrell Cannon reminded us that, if we close our eyes and do not denunciate racism, we are also being part of the problem.
On a recent radio segment, Doug Ford boldly proclaimed, "There's no one that helps black youth more than Rob Ford," followed by, "These are kids who have nothing." If Mayor Ford really does hold the view that the black youths he helps have "nothing" without his football program, he is only furthering the sentiment that no matter how hard black people and communities work, they still have "nothing" if their hard work and perseverance is not supported by a white saviour.
A white supremacist who posted hate propaganda on the Internet has been found in contempt of court for ignoring an order to get rid of the offensive material. In a split decision, two of three judges...
