International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - March 21st
Fifty years after the Sharpeville massacre that sparked the idea for the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, we can celebrate many changes and improvements. But racism continues and its effects harm the direct victims and the communities in which we all live and work. This March 21st let us renew the commitment in Ontario’s Human Rights Code to work for equal rights and opportunities without discrimination.Yes, let's. But let's also get rid of this simpering bossyboots which, in its misguided Utopian zeal, has become our oppressor.
Update: Fifty years after the Sharpeville massacre, which saw South African police open fire on a crowd of black protesters, killing 69, Muslims in Nigeria brutally massacre 500 Christians--men, women and children--with machetes, and no one says boo.
