KEY POINTS ON THE JUSTIN TRUDEAU "BLACK FACE" CONTROVERSY - THIS MAN SIMPLY CANNOT CONTINUE TO REPRESENT THE COUNTRY

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“What we know about Justin Trudeau's blackface photos — and what happens next

“From resignations to reactions, here are the questions being asked about the bombshell photos”

 

Some points I think very important.

First, we have three recorded events, not just one, and given Trudeau's reluctance to say whether there were still more, I think it likely there were.

Whether there were more or not, this tasteless dress-up was a recurring theme for Trudeau, something he obviously thought quite funny, so, to get a laugh, he repeated it and repeated it still again. And the last time he did it, he was almost 30 years old, not an adolescent.

Second, the last event, the one from the school where he taught, happened in 2001, a good thirty years or so after society had already given its verdict on this kind of behavior.

Third, Trudeau, close to instantly, dropped a thoroughly decent man, Hassan Guillet, as a candidate when an influential service organization made an accusation against him.

Trudeau did not investigate nor did he give the accused man a proper opportunity to discuss the matter, and he left the poor candidate shocked by the surprise action.

Why does Trudeau's own behavior allow such completely different treatment? And behavior where we have photographic evidence.

Fourth, how can he possibly represent Canada now at international gatherings such as the UN or the G20 without arousing derision and sarcasm and perhaps some anger? He cannot.
