Thoughts about racism in a country endlessly apologizing for its so-called “genocidal” colonial past, indulging in the self-flagellating exercise of atoning for its real and perceived historical wrongs, accusing itself of “systemic racism,” and the prime minister having announced to the world the “distinction” of Canada as the first “post-national” country, claiming: “There is no core identity, no cultural mainstream in Canada.”
Tearing at the very fabric of a country’s traditional values, a case could be made for the politics of social engineering, a.k.a. legislated multiculturalism, having given rise to “racism” (where none was before), promoting and perpetuating “racism” based on a systemic culture of society victimizing itself, thus calling for the kind of corrective action, often resented by both the so-called victims and the folks that are accused of doing the victimizing.
Meanwhile, “white-guilt” society is racially cleansing itself, with statues and monuments being toppled all over North America and Europe and street names being changed and books being burned and “free" speech requiring the seal of racial approval. All life is now seen and judged through the looking glass of race, thus consciously racializing every social phase of human relations.
Absurdly, for the government in Ottawa having officially condemned ourselves for being guilty of “systemic racism,” any declaration to the contrary that Canada is not a racist country is running the politically incorrect risk of coming to be viewed itself as a racist comment.
