I have this older friend (former co-worker) who’s from Czech Republic and she’s always telling me her family were chimney sweeps. She also hands me Kit Kats when I see her she’s so nice to me & my wife. I know she’s had a tough life she was a refuge. So I always am super appreciative of her little gifts when I see her.

Yes, you can paint yourself any which way you want. Blackface, no matter how distasteful it is, is still legal here under most contexts.

People are yelling arrest him but they can’t. They’re doing what they can, by escorting him away from the protest. No laws have been broken but the police do have some discretion in removing people who are “inciting” a breach of the peace.

I don't remember learning about that case in law school. If that were true the West Baptist Church folks would have been arrested at the very first funeral they protested. Inciting violence was literally their goal. They made their money from lawsuits related to people attacking them.

Water is actually not wet; It makes other materials/objects wet. Wetness is the state of a non-liquid when a liquid adheres to, and/or permeates its substance while maintaining chemically distinct structures. So if we say something is wet we mean the liquid is sticking to the object.

Or just ignore him and watch him fizzle out because having a room of 30 people who agree with you doesn't generate content and doesn't get you money. If you're spending 10s of thousands of dollars to travel the country and rent spaces, it has to be worth it. Just make it not worth it.

That's because you receive attention already, probably positive attention on a daily basis. This person receives no attention from others, so even negative attention feels like something to them. They become addicted to that form of attention, they push it more and more, what do they have to lose.

I feel bad for this guy, really. I also feel bad for the crowd who can't control themselves and give this guy exactly what he wants. If everyone just pretended he was invisible, he would get bored and go home. But, he got exactly what he came for, probably has done equally crazy shit since then.

That gets him away from the protesters before anything does actually happen, it might encourage him not to be a dipshit a second time and he didn’t do anything illegal per sé so I couldn’t actually arrest him.

It's unfortunate that someone would choose to do this, but it's not unfortunate that it's legal.

It’s unfortunate for those that are saying he needs to be arrested. That was what I was commenting on.

That makes sense then!

You realize this is filmed in Canada. I don't think the optics would look great to have the current government pass a law like that considering who the prime minister is.

Two things: guy shouldn't have done that but had every right to, and the 'arrest him' chants were under informed protesters angry at his act. Police did the right thing on this one.

Whoever is saying “why don’t you arrest him?” obviously doesn’t understand how free speech and free expression works. Apparently, this is in Canada, but it’s very unlikely that anyone can get arrested in a western country for putting on black face, no matter how fucked up it is.

Also, it’s very clear he’s trying to get attention, and all the people around him are falling for it… if they ignored him, he would probably just go away.

u/BenderBRoriguezzzzz May 03 '22

Those cops made the right decision in getting that dude out of there and ignoring the water for the dude in blackface and their own safety. If they'd attempted to detain water throwing guy, that shit would have gotten very bad very very quickly.

Before you refine your opinion on this situation, you have to take into account that Canadians are a little different. These people all went to high school together and now they just want attention. They all live in safe neighbourhoods, have good educations and access to health care. They are all appropriating the problems of Americans for some reason.

u/Wagbeard May 03 '22

Lol this is true.

We don't have segregated communities here. We're just adopting American politics and then acting like morons.

My community is predominately black and Chinese people. No one is oppressing anyone here.

I think the guy in blackface is a douche but so are the rest of these people.

Can someone explain to me why painting yourself black is racist? As a white European, I would have no problem with a black person painting themselves white

This was the dumbest BLM protest of all of them. It was held after the death of Regis korchinski paquette. I would recommend reading up on it. It highlights how ridiculous and non-critical some of these protests were. She jumped out of a window and her family accused the police of murder and there were protests for weeks. Also important, the police commissioner of Toronto at the time was black and several of the police there that night were black.

Pretty pathetic. Way too many emotionally frail folks. Completely ignore him and he looks like the guy that tried hard telling a joke that bombed. Nope, further solidify the stereotype screeching reeeeeeeeee window lickers that seek out something to aim outrage and virtue signaling at. Anyone that wants to protest that is so easily shook up maybe should stick to online keyboard battles. If a guy with shit for brains bothers you for face paint, you should look into some self improvement before aiming to tell folks what you think is wrong with society.
