this is some serious ish right here. I mean, check this out. Up here I have gone through culture shock in many degrees. because Canada is presented as being a truly multi-cultural society, a lot of black and white people have grown up together as if they really don't see color. By the way, there are a lot of Jamaicans, Haitians, Afrakans and Trinidadians up here...and one of the biggest things going on is them (whether male or female) having white mates. People of all races up here be talking, dressing and acting as if they are black and interact as if all is okay. That is the illusion because here is the reality. The reality is that Black people are only 5% of the population up here and in that sense are essentially powerless in terms of owning or having anything. I literally was walking around asking Black people; "where is there a black barber shop"? People was looking at me as if I was asking a strange question, so I had to be specific. "Where is the hood located where I can wake up in the morning and ONLY see Black People"? Then I got a response....but I should have gotten it the first time I asked. I now see why and how Kemet and many Black places fell apart. The reality is this; "A place can propose too be multi-cultural or desegragated all it wants to....and can even present that illusion socially to the world....but where it matters most in terms of economics, politics, businesses and the judicial system, this place is just like the U.S. with white people at ther top making all the decisions with and for their own people!!
