Hey, uh

Toronto is pretty nice, actually it is really nice. I have seen projects with garages. WTF?!?!

I didn't notice the same level of racial tension that I do in the US.

Can anybody bear witness and why you think that is? Considering most major cities in the US are basically immigrant havens, what is the difference?

Side note. I saw a woman that had a Black father and an Indian mother and she was so fine she made me bite my finger eating my sandwich. And she wasn't an anomaly.

    Toronto prides itself on multiculturalism (it's one of the most multicultural cities in the world, about half the population is foreign-born). Canadians in general and socialist and liberal Canadians in particular (of which Toronto has a multitude) are big proponents of multiculturalism. Most Canadians recognize Canada as a multicultural nation and take great pride in that fact.

    Of course, we have plenty of racists, even in Toronto, but they usually keep their racist thoughts to themselves.

    That first paragraph sounds like brochure ad.

    @the second so it falls in line with Eddie Murphy in Delirious when he said "white. People don't black people ******s no more especially when there is 🤬 around so I guess I wouldn't know"

    So basically what your saying is since half the population is diverse and foreign born this helps to limit racial animosity since erbody is from somewhere else and they haven't had time to ingrain prejudices. Well are there. Ethic neighborhoods that are dominant by cerain groups?

    Yeah, but in the United States you see white people get angry over people speaking different languages and not conforming to whatever it means to be an American. In Canada, French and English are official languages and the government and people in general make an effort to respect other people's cultures and languages.

    Yes, there are ethnic neighbourhoods dominated by certain groups. My Toronto geography is not so good, but North York and Etobicoke have a large concentration of black Canadians. There are a lot of East Asians in Kensington Market, but they're also pretty plentiful in Scarborough.

    Please the First Nations in Canada get 🤬 on like every other native people in other places. Let's keep it real. I got a first hand account from someone in Toronto who told me how they get treated.

    because Blacks in Canada don't have a Civil Rights Act of 1964, to deem racial-discrimination ILLEGAL as they absorb it.

    Therefore, they join the cowardly-mindset, like you live.

    Meaning, they readily accept their 2nd-Class status and submissively live through it, like you do when it comes to standing up for something, anything whatsoever, in which you show some respect to your Civil Right, to fight. Like one member here has said, take your lame azz over into the Jane and Finch area, that's where the niggus are herded into, over the past 2-3 decades. Or carry ya lame azz over near them Whitefolk's Italian spots along Dundas, from Ossington to Bathhurst, and get a rude awakening....better yet, go anywhere north of Dufferin St. and Dupont, really.

    You'll get a real quick wake-up call, of how much niggz are frowned upon in Toronto.

    Also, take your lame azz downtown/along Yonge Street. Behold how nearly everyone you see who plainly has big $$$ or driving premium vehicles...are either White or Asian.

    Thanks for the Heads up. I actually went to Finch and I saw many ethnicities not just Black Jamaicnas. And your civil rights bill doesn't work. If it did why are you still complaining of worsening discrimination? Are u still mad about me exposing your poverty pimping house 🤬 ass. Oh man let that go.

    Who drives a nice vehicle is of no concern to me but it is to lecherous chitlin eating poverty pimps. You 🤬 have nothing to show for all your poverty pimpin but a bill that doesn't work. And a legacy of turning black people away from supporting their own institutions.

    You mad?

    There is no denying Canada's history of racism. Slavery, restriction of visilble minority immigration (ended 1967), Japanese internment. Canada segregated First Nations and blacks and treated both populations despicably. Visible minorities have lower income levels.

    However, Canada never had Jim Crow laws. Canada does have the Bill of Rights (1960) and the Charter of Rights and Freedom (1982) and hate speech laws.

    Still, as terrible as it is and has been, racism here is and hasn't been as bad as in the United States.

    That's very true, First Nations people here continue to struggle against racist attitudes and policies.

    Ahhhh Toronto.. I love that place, used to go there every other weekend, almost moved there. Never experienced any racism and I'd be all over the place from Mississauga over to Brampton and Scarborough.. I did see some rough ass projects one time though lol.. There is\was a super good roti shop on dundas.. I'm sure racism exists there as it does everywhere else in the world but I've found the multicultural aspect is omnipresent..


    Also the half black half indian chick you saw is what's known as a dougla in Trinidad and they are almost always 🤬 gorgeous lol..

    Most multicultural city in the world we got em in every flag here. I lived in the states before moving to Toronto and still go back there and can there isn't as much racism and if there is its towards First Nations. The thing is down here white people don't consider themselves "white" since their is a large European population (Greeks, Italians and Portuguese) who either migrated here or are second generation Europeans. There is social exclusion and discrimination with the immigrants that live here in terms of finding employment the surgeons and doctors back home in their native countries pushing taxi's or just can't integrate into the work force.
