    Default Racist Parade Float

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calga...ingh-1.6502933

    Honestly, I thought the guy with the turban was Trudeau, and they were mocking him being a blackface enthusiast lol.

    Is it a stretch to call this float racist? The guy dressed like Singh, didn’t do brown face. Wasn’t really ridiculing Sikh culture or anything. I’m not sure how you can depict Singh without dressing like that. Are white women who wear kimonos racist too? Or are we just playing the race card as an excuse to shut down “doesn’t align with me” political commentary?

    I must be a retard because I don't get it. I don't get the joke, if there was one, and I don't get why it was racist.

    So alone

    The front guy is supposed to be Trudeau even tho the mask looks more like Nixon. The rear guy is supposed to be Singh, and together they’re spreading bull shit literally? I think that’s the joke.

    I think you're likely correct, and I don't see it as racist.
    People who are so quick to judge "rACisT" drop an instant 4 IQ points in my assessment.

    Sikh isn’t a race, it’s a mental illness like all religions.

    Everything is racist. Even you. And your dog. But especially Zenops. And Kert.

    Is it because it's more about the journey than the finish line?

    I think the real racists are the ones that find the images distressing and offensive.

    Yep. This is 100% political satire, should have been obvious from the big "Liberal" sign on the side of the float. Basically the float proved the hypocrisy

    I described my server as the black dude the other day to a white waitress and she was appalled that I called him black. Literally the only person of colour working for the establishment. I don’t even know what racist is anymore
