    All of this stuff going down in the States right now and I’m sitting up here in Canada wondering why you guys keep calling yourselves the most free country in the world 

    don’t pander to americans like canada doesn’t have their own problems like the mass genocide of the native population there lmao

    yeah for real americans have a lot of shit happening but an unbelievable amount of shit happens in canada so there’s really no high horse for any canadians to fucking stand on

    canada doesn’t call themselves ‘the land of the free’. and if you want to talk about the mass genocide of native populations, canada is doing a lot better than the states on that account too

    oh i’m sorry i forgot that just because canada is doing “a lot better” that they’re automatically absolved of all sins.

    did you know that although canada has a relatively low prison, that over the last 10 YEARS, the incarceration of black individuals has skyrocked over 69%?

    in the last ten years as well, the incarceration of aboriginal people have jumped 36%, despite only making up 3% of the total canadian population (x)

    here’s a few more prison statistics, since we’re on the subject (x)

    and SPEAKING of genocide, which you seemed fond of bringing up, did you know that it wasn’t even until 2002 that natives were allowed to tell their side of the story? weird! almost like they were being purposely silenced so as to maintain canada’s reputation (x

    to quote this site (x) “Unemployment rates for Aboriginal women were twice as high as those of their non-Aboriginal counterparts. In 2006, 13.5% of Aboriginal women were unemployed, compared with a rate of 6.4% for non-Aboriginal women.” unemployment for aboriginal men is even higher

    and this site also offers some interesting homicide statistics such as (x)

    • The data available show that Aboriginal people are more likely to be victims of homicide than non-Aboriginal people. While Aboriginal people represented about 4% of the total Canadian population in 2006 (the most recent population count available), 27% of homicide victims in 2009 (where the Aboriginal identity of the victim was known) were Aboriginal people. Among homicide victims that were reported to be Aboriginal people, 26% (16 victims) were women or girls (Table 13).
    • Between 1997 and 2000, the rate of homicide for Aboriginal females was 5.4 per 100,000 population, compared to 0.8 per 100,000 for non-Aboriginal victims (almost seven times higher).
    • The rate of homicide was higher among Aboriginal male victims – 12.2 per 100,000 population compared to 1.8 for non-Aboriginal males 

    i’m not even gonna start on how places like saskatchewan and manitoba, roughly 60% of aboriginal children live in poverty (x)

    also, racism isn’t just limited to black and native individuals!! how inclusive of you canada!!! did you know that if you were of asian descent in vancouver, you couldn’t stay overnight on a property - unless you worked for them! - until after 1973 (x)? sounds a lot like indentured servitude hunh??

    oh but all of that was SOOO long ago so it’s TOTALLY COOL that it slipped your mind in all, considering canada’s pristine racial track record

    i’m not saying america doesn’t have its fair share of problem, because believe me, it does, but england, canada, france, etc. CANNOT point the finger of blame and assume that it totally covers all of the shit they’ve done (and are still doing) so don’t you dare come at me with your “not as bad” bullshit

    9-year-old boy was executed in Chicago: Where is the outrage?
    August 25, 2014

    Antonio Smith, 9 years old, was assassinated the other day.

    He was Chicago’s youngest fatal shooting victim this year. He was shot at least four times and fell in a backyard on the South Side.

    And when I went out there on 71st and Woodlawn less than 24 hours after he was murdered, here’s what I didn’t see:

    I didn’t see protesters waving their hands in the air for network TV cameras. I didn’t see the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson playing their usual roles in the political race card game.

    I didn’t see white college anarchists hiding behind their white plastic Guy Fawkes masks talking about being oppressed by the state. I didn’t see politicians equivocating. But the worst thing I didn’t see was this:

    I didn’t see the theatrical outrage that you see in Ferguson, Mo. A white cop in Ferguson — a place most people never heard of just two weeks ago — shoots a black teenager and the nation knows what to do. The actors scream out their roles on cue.

    But in Chicago, a black child is assassinated, and Attorney General Eric Holder isn’t on his way here. There are no hashtag campaigns saying #saveourboys. And instead of loud anger, there is numb silence.

    "It’s only the second day. I don’t know what will happen," said Helen Cross, 82, a neighbor who lives down the street from the shooting. She’s lived in the neighborhood for 49 years.

    "Everybody says it’s a shame," she said. "It was terrible. But nobody’s … nobody is …"

    Her voice trailed off.

    Angry?

    She nodded.

    "A lot of people don’t want to be involved until it happens to their family," said her son, Lewis Cross. "And that’s the shame."

    The screamers and the race hustlers buzzing in Ferguson like flies have it easy: White cop/black victim is a script that sells, and the TV cameras come running.

    But in Chicago, young African-American and Latino men and boys and girls are shot down far too regularly, by neighbors, meaning other black and Latinos.

    Venting outrage at police is easier, and it’s politically advantageous. Venting at neighbors is a bit more complicated and dangerous. The neighbors will still be there on the block long after the columnists and the TV cameras leave. People are afraid. They don’t want their children to pay for anything they might say.

    "This city is crazy," said neighbor Arnold Caffey, a mechanic from Detroit. "I mean, Detroit is better than this."

    We were sitting on his porch out of the rain.

    "A baby has been assassinated, and where’s the anger?" he asked. "When that child was shot, some people out there were still drinking, I’m saying a baby has been assassinated, they’re like, well, they don’t care."

    What if the shooter had been police officer — a white police officer?

    "You know what would happen, the whole Ferguson thing," Caffey said. "But it’s not."

    The Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor at St. Sabina Roman Catholic Church, has consistently condemned the violence in Chicago. He doesn’t flit in or out of town. He’s always here and was scheduled to lead a neighborhood prayer vigil Thursday evening.

    "This 9-year-old boy — in my mind — when you get multiple shots for a 9-year-old boy in a back alley, that’s an execution," he said in a telephone interview before the event. "That’s not a drive-by, that’s not an accident. That sounds like an execution."

    He’s been outspoken about Ferguson, but he knows that moral outrage is undercut if there’s silence over the assassination of a child.

    "We cannot simply be outraged about something that happens someplace else and get immune to what happens at home," he said. "This is pure evil.

    "We have to be absolutely outraged. And we have to say, ‘We’re going to find out who you are, and we’re going to turn you in because you’re not going to get by with this. You can’t kill a 9-year-old kid and go home and eat McDonald’s and watch TV.’"

    Antonio Smith was shot in a backyard that borders a railroad viaduct on 71st Street. To the east, the gang that runs things is called Sircon City. To the west, a group called Pocket Town runs the show. Police say he was not a gang member.

    Cynthia Smith-Thigpen, a retired Chicago Public Schools teacher, talked about the lack of public outrage.

    "There’s shamelessness to the silence over this boy’s death," she said. "It’s like, ‘Oh, another child dead in Chicago.’ Perhaps we’re all numb to what goes on in this city."

    Out there was a concrete pad where a garage once stood, and thick grass in the yard and bushes around the edges. And there was the rain and the silence in Pocket Town.

    I stood off to the side and pictured Antonio in my mind. Was he running? Were his hands raised the way activists said Michael Brown’s hands were raised in Ferguson?

    Antonio was a baby. He didn’t allegedly steal cigars or threaten a shopkeeper or punch a cop. He was 9 years old. He was targeted. He was murdered.

    "People need to be angry, but this isn’t TV, and some people really don’t care," said neighbor Tony Miller, who has a son about Antonio’s age. "And people who don’t live here don’t want to know, but people get killed all the time."

    Antonio’s funeral is scheduled for this Saturday morning. If anyone has any information about any rallies, organizing meetings or any support funds for his family, please feel free to message us.
