Great Editoral in Vancouver Sun on Racism in Canada

Racism happens to everyone, even against white people. We must stop the circle of hate and the stupid blame game where people blame everyone else. Stop it now... and just judge everyone on an individual basis.

Vancouver Sun: We can't stamp out hate, but we can defend tolerance

Among incidents motivated by race or ethnicity, about half targeted blacks, 13 per cent South Asians, 12 per cent Arabs or West Asians, five per cent Southeast Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, etc.) and five per cent Caucasians. Although only one in 10 hate crimes were motivated by sexual orientation, such attacks were more likely than others to involve violence.

Canada takes pride in its diversity but our multicultural mosaic is truly a fragile co-existence that must be managed with care.
