The Toronto Star, the ever race conscious promoter of diversity for diversity's sake tells us in this article the diversity is not our strength. Well, not exactly but the subtext is there.
The article is interesting because it offers a glimpse into the reality of race relations in Toronto. It is another article in which the left leaning Star admits that racism and discrimination are not exclusively linked to the chromosomes and genes of white males. In one example an owner of a Coffee Time doughnut shop, a Chinese woman, expressed her dislike for Turk's saying she didn't want Turk's in her store. In another example a Canadian born south Asian woman of the Muslim faith felt she was singled out by the office manager who is a black woman.
In the examples cited above and given in the article itself, those who felt harassed or discriminated against filed human rights complaints. Indeed, the article is more about the burgeoning human rights industry than it is about the tenuous relations between the many ethnic communities that make up the city.
The growth of a human rights industry is a natural outcrop of the social re-engineering that has been imposed onto Toronto and by extension the rest of the nation. The radical transformation of the country necessitates the need for a quasi police force to make sure dissent is effectively dealt with and that everyone falls in line to the expectations of those who are at the helm of Canada's social re-engineering efforts. It is about control by a handful of cultural elites. Popular will is irrelevant. Too many little people who need to be protected from themselves cannot be trusted with the direction of the country. That they have the franchise is democracy's biggest failing.
The irony is that if the Chinese woman didn't like Turk's before I'm sure she likes them even less now. And if that black woman didn't like Muslims I doubt she has reversed her opinion. You see, these human rights complaints didn't make things better. They made them worse. This is what minority groups don't get. Calls for accommodation and challenges to Canadian identity are not winning you popularity points and it is not making the country a better place. There is a reason why Muslims and Sikhs rate so low on national opinion polls and if you have to ask why then that there is your problem.
I still maintain that making whites a minority group will make the country more racist. An assured dominant racial group will be more accepting of racial minorities because they will not be threatened by their presence. Remove that assurance and you sow the seeds of discord.
