Re: “Council choo-choo-chooses not to fund downtown “road train”

Hey John good news - artists CAN get municipal & provincial tourism grants to defray the costs of producing merchandise! Get in touch with Music Nova Scotia, they'll hook you up with all the right grant applications.

No fake loophole required!

Re: “Nova Scotia still far too white

I ain't afraid of no ghost jesus.

Baby child, saying a statement would be racist if you reversed it is like saying a bullet would have hit you if the gun had been aimed in the opposite direction; that if the sea were the sky and vice versa, you'd be soaked right now.

Racism has meaningful effect only from white people towards others. It's not a reversible rain slicker. White people cannot suffer anti-white racism.

Your concern on this regard does not cast you in a flattering light.

Re: “Nova Scotia still far too white

It's very charitable for so many commenters to help illustrate the article's points and demonstrate exactly why a preponderance of one group in a given area where that group experiences automatic privilege in contrast to members of all other groups contributes to an atmosphere of hostility.

It's less impressive that so few commenters seem to have read past the headline, preferring to feign ignorance as to what the nature of the concern in question might be. In a nutshell, "too white" doesn't mean "white skin itself is inherently bad;" it means that an overwhelming racial majority leads to alienation for outsiders. And if we white folks can't observe that through our own experiences, well gosh, maybe that just goes to show how that particular problem works.

Oh Halifax. I miss you. But I don't miss this!
