How did Canadians react to Trudeau's blackface photos? With a big meh, polls find

https://pressfrom.info/ca/news/canada/-167991-how-did-canadians-react-to-trudeaus-blackface-photos-with-a-big-meh-polls-find.html

In a new survey conducted by Abacus Data, which looked at reaction to Trudeau’s terrible week and surveyed impressions on the election as a whole, it’s clear that the scandal may not, for now, have had as big an impact as the Conservatives might have hoped.

“The photos and video released late last week was a shock that changed the focus and conversation of the election campaign,” David Coletto of Abacus said in a release accompanying the poll. “But so far, evidence that they have fundamentally changed people’s impressions or intended voting behaviour is quite limited.

/snjp/

Some 42 per cent of those polled by Abacus said they weren’t really bothered by seeing the PM caught in brownface and blackface, and 34 per cent said they didn’t like it but accepted his apology and could get over it.

Besides the Trudeau controversy, Abacus found overall the race is almost neck and neck, and numbers remain much as they were before campaigning began. The Conservatives led by Andew Scheer sit at 34 per cent across Canada, the Liberals under Trudeau at 32 per cent, the NDP under Jagmeet Singh at 15 per cent, and the Greens led by Elizabeth May at 11 per cent.

Doesn't bother me one little bit - well - it bothers me that the media made so much hoopla about it . . . .

I don't believe it was racially motivated - not for a second

that is all.

5. Canadians don't have a real history with African slavery

Blackface doesn't have the racist connotation there that it does here.

7. ''doesn't have the racist connotation there that it does here'' says the white guy

Canadian slaves were mostly Indians but there were blacks. Emancipation/abolition came much earlier than in the USA around 1834 when Britain banned it

The Indians themselves were slaveowners before the white man arrived

Under the french, slavery prospered under Code Noir

10. Not only that but....

merely dressing up in black/brown face isn't racist unless it's done in an attempt to denigrate that race as being inferior.

11. Sad we'll never be able to have shows like All in the Family and The Jeffersons again,

unless all this PC bullshit stops.

But I won't be holding my breath for that.

Those shows, and others similar will never make the screen again I fear - but they were well received at the time

All in the Family

88% liked this TV show
Google users

Description"All in the Family" is touted as the series that brought reality to prime-time TV entertainment. The lead character, Archie Bunker, is a loudmouthed, uneducated bigot who believes in every stereotype he has ever heard. His wife, Edith, is sweet but not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

The Jeffersons

93% liked this TV show
Google users

Description"We're moving on up, to the East Side, to a deee-luxe apartment in the sky ... ." This spinoff from "All in the Family" is about literal upward mobility - African- American couple George and Louise Jefferson move into a swanky high-rise building. George is an obstreperous, often rude guy who thinks his wealth should get him anywhere he wants to go. His wife is more levelheaded and often cuts him down to size when his schemes go awry.

I'm an old fart, not in the best of health and with the present world situation, and with what I believe is yet to come within the next few decades,

I won't miss much that I'd find pleasant.

Just look at this board, and it is by no means anywhere's near the worst - but too many members just seem to be itching to "nail" some other posters for their point of view, or simply because others post an article they do not agree with, or offends their sensibilities.

Some of my closest friends cannot discuss religion or politics without getting enraged that my views/beliefs differ from theirs, so I consciously avoid discussion with them, because they are "right" and I am "wrong", and that prevents civil discussion . . .

(sigh)

14. Do your enraged friends

claim they were beaten up and had a noose hung around their necks by people wearing Trudeau 2019 hats?

Do your kids get soda thrown in their faces for wearing a Trudeau 2019 hat?

Or, do they claim 3 classmates held them down and cut off their mullets?

Do they claim your kids have punchable faces for smiling at an old man?

Do they carry around mattresses to call attention to a rape that never happened because your culture is so toxic?


Dafuq outta here with your sniveling.

13. Lefty drove Meghan Kelley off the air for mentioning blackface in a historical context.

Your hypocrisy rings hollow.

8. This is not surprising. Canada has voter ID laws and we all know those laws are racist.

Canada seems okay with racism.

15. Canada does have voter ID laws, does it not?

And every time I see a discussion about any requirements related to voter ID (granted, it’s usually based on US state policy), there is someone calling it racist. While I personally disagree with that, a lot of liberals seem to think so.

16. yup - we have voter ID but it can be sorta informal

Although required by law, some places don't demand it , but then again, when ya live in a small town, and the monitor at the polling station knows you - they wave away my efforts to show ID

BUT - I've never heard ANYONE come up with the idea it was racist, nor really had any objection to it.

But hey - dis be Canada,

eh?

17. In the US, anything that would impede the voting process is racist.

So if a Hispanic woman shows up and says she is Sven Jorgensen, it’s racist to question it.
