Daughter defends Quebec couple's controversial testimony on values charter; says they're not racist | CTV News

My favorite line in this article is where, in arguing that her parents are not racist, she states that even her daughter is 'dating a black man'. Is this not just another version of the 'I've don't hate ______ (add minority group here). Some of my best friends are _______!'



This proposed Charter is doing nothing more than creating division and strife. But it works to the PQ's goal of playing up the xenophobic traces that run through the Francophone majority in the province, hopefully (in their opinion) boosting their chances at being re-elected in the next provincial election expected this spring.

  1. In some way black people and other visible minorities are often like people who win big money in lotteries. 'Open minded' people who expose themselves for what they are ( i.e. the ugliness of their own conviction) ... suddenly want to be their friend.
    Racism is one consequence of the exclusiveness inherent in ideology.
