The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario...

Here's a horrible case from today's National Post...
Earlier this month, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) awarded $5,000 to a black female newspaper carrier who insisted she had been arrested by police in early 2007 only because of her skin colour.

Early one morning, Sharon Abbott was delivering newspapers to homes in Toronto's west end. Police Sergeant Stephen Ruffino observed her car double-parked outside an apartment. Then he saw her re-enter the vehicle, turn left without signalling, drive without a seatbelt and swerve from side to side. When she got out again, Sgt. Ruffino tried to stop Ms. Abbott and give her a warning, but she failed to stop and identify herself several times. So he briefly scuffled with her, handcuffed her and detained her for 45 minutes.

Although the HRTO found no "conscious" racism on Sgt. Ruffino's part, it nonetheless concluded his actions were motivated by a deep-seated prejudice ... of which he was apparently entirely unaware.

The Tribunal also stated, without substantiation, that white people in authority have "an expectation of docility and compliance" from black people they encounter.

We guess we're behind on the latest politically correct dogma, but hasn't the traditional racist stereotype of blacks depicted them as violent, unpredictable criminals -- which is to say, the very opposite of docile and compliant? The world of official human rights has entered such a surreal la-la-land that its mandarins can't even keep it straight in their heads what stereotypes and prejudices they're supposed to be fighting.

In fact, we'll be honest: Not a single person on this editorial board had ever heard of the "expectation of docility and compliance" that is supposedly rampant in the minds of white people. It's almost like the Human Rights Tribunal... made it up.

Government officials inventing, promoting, and publishing brand new racist stereotypes. Your tax dollars at work, Canada.

I enjoyed your comments. In fact I enjoyed them so much, I inserted them into my own posting on the matter.

You may be Right, but you are also right.

The decision itself is even more of a gem (

In saying this, I am not at all suggesting that Sergeant Ruffino made the choices that he did on the conscious basis that the applicant is a Black woman. As stated above, and as confirmed by the Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. S. (R.D.), supra, that is not how racial discrimination most often operates. Most often, racial discrimination emanates from unconscious attitudes and belief systems. In a historical context, some of these attitudes and belief systems include that Black persons (and other groups) are expected to “know their place” and that any Black person who talks back or refuses to comply is to be regarded as “uppity” and needs to be dealt with harshly. There is no evidence before me that Sergeant Ruffino consciously subscribes to any such attitudes or belief systems. But these kinds of attitudes and belief systems are part of our historical and social fabric, and are imbued in all of us through social interactions, the education system, the media and entertainment industries, and other means.

Thought Policing reigns supreme in our fair land, and we are all the worse for wear.

The OHRC is a farce, and even the CHRC is equally a joke.
The CHRC homepage is just window dressing to appear to care about Human Rights while they themselves allow the Violations of 2 U.N. Charter Rights for Children based on a National Corporation endorsing public displays of Child-abuse and a Quasi-Pedophilia action by naked males exposing themselves to little boys as the Police provide Security to allow it and stop Catholics from protesting it in public.
Barbara Hall knows damn well that Ontario's laws are being broken every year in Toronto which deal with Child abuse and pedophilia displays ,but because the crimes are done by perceived "Victims" from their sexual preference Rights that Ms.Hall will defend to her death.

I will never ever believe that smoking cigarettes DON'T cause harm, nor do I believe that it is Healthy for children to be exposed to naked males flaunting thier penis at them in Public as the children see the Police allow it as the Mayor and Police Chief take part in the public even to endorse this U.N.Charter violations that Canada signed on to but won't enforce.

This is why Shariah Law and Honour killings will be legal one day when CAIR and Dr.Sheem Khan get their way to bring Saudi Ararbia to canada.

I don't expect pedophiles to agree with me, so don't waste
your responses that justify your RIGHT to abuse little boys .

Let's just get this over with: Tax white people for being born white, and give the money to non-whites.
