Now read the following:
Part of the problem seemed to lie in the new Employment Equity Commission. The commission had been set up by Rae specifically to advance the cause of disadvantaged groups, including racial minorities. Most staff members hired were from the four disadvantaged groups. But soon it was torn itself by racial animosity. Julie Mason, former director of communications for the federal NDP, worked for about one year at the commission. She later called it the most racist workplace she had ever experienced.
"I've never seen anything like it," Mason said. "It was absolutely vicious.... The blacks hated the Indians; the Indian were the most antisemitic; everyone hated the lesbians and gays.... There was a real pecking order. At the bottom were people with disabilities. Next to the bottom were white women. There were no white men, not until they had to bring in John DeMarco [a senior bureaucrat in Citizenship] to fix up the mess."
The above is from the book Rae Days: The rise And Follies Of The NDP by Toronto Star columnist Thomas Walkom and can be found in the chapter titled "Same Boat Now" (pp. 215-16 to be precise). The book is about Bob Rae and his years leading the NDP government of Ontario.
Some people have a hard time defining the word irony let alone using it correctly but if anyone has a hard time understanding it then let the above do the explaining. How fitting that a commission called the Employment Equity Commission; established by a socialist government to address assumed systemic discrimination in the workplace; staffed by people of alleged "disadvantaged groups"; a symbol of multicultural harmony free of the negative influences of the evil white man be described as "the most racist workplace" ever experienced by a member of an alleged disadvantaged group. And the icing on the cake is that a white man was needed to "fix up the mess."
I am of the opinion that the more racially diverse a society becomes the more racist it will be and if the workplace environment of the Employment Equity Commission can be taken as a working model of the liberal multicultural social fantasy, of Canada's future, then I seem justified in thinking that. This is because immigration fueled multiculturalism destroys a common identity that can unite a people and in its place a tribal mentality takes root.
