The truth of the matter is that racism is an unfortunate occurance in our society. one I would hope that is on its way out. however, citing racism at the drop of a hat is exactly the type of behaviour that breeds animosity.
africville was a tragic example of the city appropriating land that was populated by poor people. poor black people. The same thing happened to the small farm town that once stood where burnside industrial park now stands. those were also people unable to stop the city from taking their land. they were offered little compensation. and those peole were poor and white. people make a racial issue out of what should have been a poverty issue. I am not saying there was not a racist attitude prevailing during the times. I am however saying that black white, red, green, brown. its easy to talk about color if your looking for it.
Skin color is the last thing I look for.
