Isn't it amazing how smug and self-righteous some canadians are?

Canadians lie about their country:

CBC News - Edmonton - 'We screwed up,' Alberta admits after using British beach photo in ads

Canadians want to poison people with genetically manipulated hogs:

There’s a poll out that shows Canadian have turned into hard-hearted, immigrant-hating SOBs:

Certainly - any living former slave should ask for reparations - from his living master.
But to bill someone else for the actions of people long dead, who were not party to the injury, is - how shall we put it - UNJUST.

In order for white people to accept blacks as Americans you have to accept some aspects of the culture. Hip hop has to be accepted as part of american music as mainstream and played on more radio stations. There has to be acceptance of certain hairstyles at work. And last,you absolutely have to accept their names however weird and un-American you think they are.

What? Why? Music will be played if there is an audience to support it. Hair styles? Names? None of this is consequential. Get serious!

The Dutch were involved in the slave trade.

So, the idea is to force people who never owned slaves to give their money to people that never were slaves. Because of slavery.

Sounds like a great idea to me.

Um yes it is. When you have people on this forum stating they won't hire anyonme with a ghetto sounding name it is consequential,esp when dealing with employment.
