As Canadians, and especially as someone living in Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world, we can get a bit smug about how civilized and fair our society is.
Recently, a muslim kid in the states got handcuffed and fingerprinted for bringing a clock to school… because to those well versed in looney tunes, it looked like a bomb. Even though, they knew it wasn’t, and the kid insisted it was a clock, clearly this was an attempt to… terror something something.
Then of course, there is the old ‘ muslim president‘ thing, wink wink, B.H. Obama…
Of course, we’re not totally immune.
And, of course, once the rhetoric gets flowing, the stupid usually follows.
Can’t we all get along?
