    Re: Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface

    As little love as I have for P.M. Trudeau... Who cares?

    What I don't understand is exactly when applying any kind of face paint to emulate a different skin colour became "blackface". Blackface was a very specific kind of makeup, and one can reasonably argue that it wasn't the makeup itself that was objectionable but the acting associated with it.

    It's really society's loss that people can't alter their skin tone to perfect a costume. I wonder if 10 years from now it will even be acceptable for a white man to dress up as a black character, or vice versa. Just how much voluntary segregation are we going to subject ourselves to?

    Re: Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface

    This thread went exactly the way I thought it would go...




    From The O/P:

    This is a critical moment for Trudeau, who began his re-election campaign on Sept. 11 under the cloud of a scandal over whether he pressured his then-attorney general to drop corruption charges against a large Canadian engineering firm. The Liberal Party leader has championed minority groups during his nearly four years as prime minister and made his embrace of Canadaís many cultures a major part of his leadership. At least seven of the 35 members of Trudeauís cabinet are from ethnic minorities.

    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    I agree, and that's why it makes the left look like complete fools dismissing what you aptly described above when it comes to their double standard.
    When the tables are turned, and one of their own makes an alleged "faux pas", they apologize for them.

    I made this thread for no other reason than for the reason you opined above and to sit back and enjoy the hypocrisy.

    That's not true. I can think of two times he has apologized

    One was over his comments that were picked up on a hot mic during an Access Hollywood event over a decade ago.
    Another time was when he apologized to Justice Kavanaugh and his family on behalf of the nation for the absolutely horrific attempt of character assassination by the left.

    Of course the finding of this photo is political but watch the left support him now, and all because he issued an apology. As if this would matter if a conservative apologized for an alleged "racist" act.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    You mean the one where he excused it as 'locker room talk', redirected blame to Clinton, and added the qualifier, "if anyone was offended"?

    “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”

    Quite the apology. If one of my students gave such an 'apology' they would immediately be dismissed.

    Another time was when he apologized to Justice Kavanaugh and his family on behalf of the nation for the absolutely horrific attempt of character assassination by the left.
    Oh, please.
