Re: “Halifax's hidden racism

I have immigrated to Nova Scotia in 2002 and it was the biggest mistake I ever made. Although the law does not seem to be racist but racisim is all over the society's face. You are secluded, mistreated, under estimated and looked down by many people because you are simply not of a European decent. Interestingly I am orginally from an EU country but have brown skin. I have been subjected to many acts of racisim in Halifax that when I left this year I felt very relieved and as if I was being taken away from prison. For those of you who will get very defensive and ask me what on earth I was doing there from 2002 to 2012. It is not easy to move after you have immigrated and lost your home, your income and are trying to settle down. Plus I thought what is the point, all the other provinces must be the same. I live in Toronto now and I realised I was wrong. Ofcourse racisim exists in every part of Canada but N.S is simply a white province and yes I met some very good ppl in Halifax, who I will always remember, but the majority of my experience was simply bad and sad because of the people not the law.
