Well, really, just plain old racism.

This weekend in Montreal there was a parade which had a whole bunch of black students pushing floats populated by white people...

And when people pointed out “um, racist much?” there was the usual “WE DIDN’T MEAN IT THAT WAY! You’re being racist for seeing colour!” Facepalm

I’m not going to link the news media stories because the are mostly telling everyone to calm down with the racism talk and rage inducing. Instead I’ll share this video by a couple of local men who explain everything so clearly and why this is not okay. They are two first generation immigrants to Montreal and are a really great (and ACTUAL) representation of the diversity of our city.

Check out their other videos too!
