Premiers, police chiefs, and God knows who else thinks they are leaders are quick to say that Canada does not have racist structures. Not the prime minister: he of black face funignorance. One is either blind or corrupt not to recognize that in Canada’s history atrocities related to racism have shaped the country. The videos and stories of brutality and inhumanity will surface and the evidence will challenge the caring citizens of this country to cringe and do what civilized people do: renounce and withdraw from corrupt associations.
Not in my backyard
They swear that they have black or native friends or that their religion is against racial discrimination, but we have been surprised to find that institutions are riddled by ignorant and cowardly noisemakers. The RCMP and our local service agencies are getting a long overdue makeover.
- Your church, mosque, temple, and synagogue
- Your employer
- Your car dealer
- Your grocery checkout staff
- Your health care practitioner
These are all condemnable. We can ignore the garments and medals these parties wear. Do not tell me “all doctors and lawyers are great guys and great public servants”. We are aware that the welcoming public signs and reminders of civility in these places may be pure sham. The time has long gone for a redemptive change.
It is still a matter of pride that Haitians rose from the bondage of the European slave trade to become the first independent state of dispersed Africans. The other path taken by our island nations has perpetuated the very tools of injustice that the colonial powers used. Aren’t they just another cog in the colonial gear box?
Holding our noses
The suicidal crew are so accustomed to presidential comedy that nothing in the excreta range registers any more. The ideal scenario for 45, the GOP and the DOJ would be for the population to stop listening while the things American governance stands for get pushed into oblivion. It is a phenomenon worth seeing: serpent tongues flicking to and fro, so much prey, strike ’em all. The land of the free looks more like one giant prison.
A great secular entity becomes a prisonRevelation of John 18:2
And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
Everywhere we look there are signs of decay. If we look we will see it. Every time we look southward we cringe because many think that Canada needs what the United States has. If our education and nurture is full of double speak and elitism we will neither care about the history we share nor cringe at the resurgence of corruption and deceit.
