Racism in Canada

racism (1)

Racism is the belief that characteristics and abilities can be attributed to people simply on the basis of their race and that some racial groups are superior to others. Racism and discrimination have been used as powerful weapons encouraging fear or hatred of others in times of conflict and war, and even during economic downturns. Racism is a well known issue. From racial profiling to other issues such as affirmative action, police brutality against minorities and the history of slavery and the rising resentment against immigrants.

.

There are notable records of racism, slavery in Canada from Canada’s early days, even the 17th century. More than half of all Canadian slaves were aboriginal and the United Empire Loyalists brought their slaves with them after leaving what became the United States. In 1793 the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe, passed the Act Against Slavery making it illegal to bring slaves into the colony, and mandating the gradual emancipation of all slaves in Upper Canada. In 1834 slavery was outlawed in Canada but not racism.

  Rasicm  is alive and well in our Canadian Justice system”   Under this regime, Black and First Nations don’t just go to the back of the bus, they go under it.” Only the non-white officers are held accountable. The white RCMP officers get off scot-free, even though they did exactly the same thing as their less white colleagues.   Now why are the clearly foolish Canadian  justice ministers, cops, so foolish still  that they do now even think that they can turn the clock backwards and continue again doing the very same bad things now that they all have even been exposed for what they really are world wide even.. they are bad people who abuse citizens and obstruct justice and do need to be put into prison themselves. You know I get a kick out of those lying spin  doctors,  police officers, bad cops, union representatives, police lovers, bad PERSONS   who STILL DO say that ALL OF  bad people, INCLUDING the ALCOHOLICS, the bad cops and their bad supervisors too they  can always be rehabilitated, retrained.. and how many millions of them now has this happened to them.. almost none.. a bad apple tends to get worse.. The RCMP maximum 10 days punishment is always absurd, permanent dismissal is what is always needed with the bad cops and their clearly bad superiors who had managed and hired them too.. Bad solicitor generals and bad Justice Ministers, bad Premiers, bad Prime Ministers as well should all be fired ASAP.   Canadian Justice is too often an empty one. The establishment cover ups for it’s own and prevails.

Alberta has become the devil’s belt and it is no longer the Bible Belt or God’s country, already has long been known to be a racist, red necked province that too readily hates others.. it also still has a high misrepresentation of natives arrested now as well.. It’s letter of the law oriented  law enforcement community, justice systems  are known to be bigoted as well even in my own direct experiences.  Incompetent, want-a-be Police rejects looking for a raise, promotion is too typical of the bad police enforcements in Alberta.. and so many of them too.. Stay away from Alberta!!!   https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/04/26/even-why-up-to-30-somalis-murdered-in-alberta/

Racism often is accidental  but not always. It seems that many people who join supremacist groups do so at a young age, and a lot of recruiting by these various hate groups are targeted at children. And racism exusts often at the heart of the police force, in the US I traffic violation stops is the most common ways to raise police funds through fines, 90 per cent of those who received a ticket and 93 per cent of people arrested were black. The police routinely breached residents’ constitutional rights by stopping them without reasonable suspicion, arresting them without probable cause, and using unreasonable force against them.

Today, people of colour still face racism and stereotypes. .The North American Indian has experienced a great deal of racism. Although many people overlook or excuse the behavior it is still wrong. Even the justice system does not tend to care for its native sons and daughters. Most crimes against Native still go unpunished. Natives remain among the most economically disadvantaged groups in the country, and also do suffer from high levels of alcoholism and suicide.

OTTAWA — Aboriginal inmates in Canada make up too high a percentage of Canada’s prison population and tend to get harsher sentences and less programming, a report from the country’s prison watchdog said . More than 70 per cent of inmates in Manitoba are in provincial facilities. Statistics Canada reports 66 per cent of Manitoba inmates on remand and 69 per cent in sentenced custody are aboriginal. The OCI report also notes aboriginal offenders are less likely than non-aboriginal offenders to be granted parole, more likely to be in segregation, more likely to have been in prison before, are classified as higher risk and are more likely to reoffend after they are released. The statistics, says the report, are a sign of the corrections’ service failure to ensure aboriginal prisoners are getting the help they need. Aboriginals are severely overrepresented in federal jails: they account for 17.3 per cent of inmates but make up only four per cent of the Canadian adult population Predictions are that the numbers will go on as they have over the past decade – 131 per cent in the case of aboriginal women.

racism (2)

Chinese people are assumed to be smart, intelligent, short, and “yellow.” Having small eyes would have people automatically assuming you’re Chinese (or Asian). Young Black boys are assumed to be aggressive, dangerous and up to no good. This is an example of a stereotype Black people go through. They are assumed to be “dangerous.” White people are always assumed to be rich. Blonde girls are assumed to be dumb. We have all heard of the Polish, Newfies jokes.. One  main group of people that often faced with racism and discrimination are Gypsies. In Europe they have been persecuted to a similar extent as the Jews throughout history, including World War II and even now they are largely mistreated or ignored. The internet can also be a breeding ground harboring hatred. This is very serious as the number of hate sites that have sprung up in the recent years is shocking and also increasing at an alarming rate.

.
Racism has always been both an instrument of discrimination and a tool of exploitation. Even though it may be impossible to entirely prevent the amount of racism and discrimination that the people of colour receive, all racism is still unacceptable. Colored persons themselves are often racists too.

.
There is a systemic racism in health care as well. “People don’t like to see if there’s racism existing in the health-care system, but there definitely is.” During French and British Imperial days , racial bias was ingrained within the culture itself. The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission has recommended that all levels of government augment “cultural competency training” in medical schools and the health system itself. A 2015 Auditor-General’s report highlighted disparities in health care provided to First Nations people in remote areas. It found about 400 nurses serve roughly 95,000 First Nations people in 85 indigenous health facilities in Ontario and Manitoba. The report found some facilities were in substandard states and that nurses were not thoroughly trained to deal with the needs of certain communities. Of 45 nurses interviewed, only one had completed compulsory courses in indigenous health offered by Health Canada.

And I am not convinced that our too often rather incompetent, racist , cost ineffective  national police, security forces, RCMP included now are capable of dealing with the Muslims terrorists especially  since they clearly cannot speak Russian or Arabic or any other foreign languages  for the most part still. A pair of basement-dwelling, recovering drug addicts with few resources, Nuttall and Korody were found guilty of terrorism-related crimes by a B.C. Supreme Court jury last year. No convictions have been entered, because their defence lawyers claim the pair was entrapped, that authorities seized on the couple unfairly, pulling them into a police-contrived plot to detonate three homemade pressure cooker bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day, 2013 . THIS RCMP  OPERATION COST 900 THOUSAND DOLLARS
