Driving home from work rant:
Every time they (CBC & 1010AM) mention that Toronto has a new police chief they mention the things that he has to deal with as the new chief. The only issue that they’ve mentioned today is a practice the police use called “carding.” Carding is a practice where the police stop and ask people for their ID – go ahead and say that it’s not mainly black people, but make sure you say that to a black man.
So the new guy is black and the only thing he needs to worry about his black people being stopped.
This is just perpetuating racism.
Imagine if the new guy were white and the only issue that he had to deal with is how often police stop white people to ask, “are you ok, sir?”
Or imagine he were of Hispanic origin, would his issues be all about temporary migrant workers?
