[Here’s another dumb racist report by deep thinkers called human rights experts. Most of those surveyed support “affirmative action“—alternatively known as “reverse discrimination” against whites sanctioned by government. I remember years ago my friend didn’t pass the Halifax Fire Department entrance test because he was white and had to make a test score 10 points higher than the black applicants. But no human rights experts ever noticed.
Are you shopping in Nova Scotia? Then be careful: Many of the retail stores are owned by minorities! I’ve lived and worked in countries where racism (class distinction, or master-slave relationship) is official policy, and when these same folks come to Canada they keep their original culture. Maybe, just maybe that has something to do with racism.
And what’s this nonsense about being African-Canadian, African-Brazilian, African-Welsh, and so on? That’s as racist as you can get. How about being just Canadian? Okay, according to the report, Aboriginals, blacks, Muslims, etc. don’t have racist attitudes. Then maybe they can teach the rest of humanity how to accomplish this. Good luck.]
Minorities treated more poorly than whites while shopping: Nova Scotia reportThe Canadian Press

HALIFAX — A new report by the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission says Aboriginals and blacks say they are treated more poorly than whites while shopping.
The 131-page study released today says Aboriginals, African-Nova Scotians and Muslims say they are the targets of offensive language, treated as physically threatening and seen as potential thieves.
The commission says its survey is the first in Canada to examine when staff treat customers poorly because of their race.
The commission says it concluded that consumer racial profiling is based on stereotypes and retailers may not even be aware that they are acting in a racist manner.
Data for the study was gathered through a survey of 1,219 people in face-to-face interviews in Halifax, Millbrook, Digby and Sydney between March and August of last year.
A smaller group of people took part in focus groups during the project.
