Apparently, those folks over in Montreal, Canada don't do much Sun tanning, so I guess they've come up with a not so new way to be BLACK.
The elitist white students at Hautes Études Commerciales, the Université de Montréal’s business school. claimed to be honoring Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter, a five-time World, and three-time Olympic gold medallist by painting themselves with blackfaces. What takes the cake, is that the University's head honchos do not see anything was wrong with it. Therefore, they came up with the same old tired excuse and false apology they always use when they know that it was meant as an insult.
"But the University has defended the students saying the freshmen were assigned an ambassador and sport for the day and had to dress up in costume according to the ambassador."~~Jamaicaobserver~~
Someone needs to send those white folks over in Montreal a memo to let them know that they do not have to paint themselves with blackfaces to kick it. Nor do they have to pretend that they did not know that it was offensive. Stop lying and just be your ole racist self. They must be following our American racist lead. America does have a way of corrupting people's beliefs and giving out false apologies.
"Along with donning the colours of the Jamaican flag, several students also covered their face, arms and legs in black paint. The colourful attire included at least one Rastafarian hat, one green underwear patterned with monkey faces, and a stuffed animal that students carried around."~~Jonathan Montpetit,The Canadian Press~~
"When one of the group members noticed Morgan, he allegedly yelled: "Look guys, we’ve got a real black!" He then turned to the crowd and continued chanting: "Smoke some weed! Yeah mon! Yeah mon!"~~Jamaicaobserver~~
Well...I guess Jamaicans could return the so-called friendliness by honoring those Montreal students by painting their faces white when Montreal comes to visit. And they could shout...Smoke METH and DRINK A KEG OF BEER! Yeah dude! Nothing like a friendly game of sports to show sportsmanship.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
