Ok. Either he makes up for he harm he causes by repenting or he resigns. globalnews.ca/news/5922861/j…
Already he's being bombarded with hateful replies from RWNJs and extreme SJW-types for THREE instances of him wearing brownface.
I know I'm probably going to upset people by defending him. I get that wearing brownface is inexcusable...Times were different. He hasn't worn brownface since the last few times. I'm very disappointed in him yes, as I should be. But I'm trying to forgive him since...
..he hasn't really pulled that kind of crap in years. Look. Nobody forgets when you wear racist makeup 3 or four times or more, but if they genuinely regret it, at least let them repent! Don't give us any whataboutisms or tar and feather everyone over something they did!
I know what you're thinking. "How is this a minor slip-up? He wore racist make-up three times!"...Hey. Sarah Silverman, a liberal comedienne, wore blackface in her show, I won't pretend she didn't deserve flak or it, but she's grown out of it now. Robert Downey Jr. wore...
...blackface in a 2008 movie, but it was supposed to be a way of showcasing how wrong it is, which was the point. And yet many miss it.
I'm not surprised right wing media is using this as political attacks. torontosun.com/opinion/column…
Ok, so what? he did dumb things and wore racist facepaint/costumes, and his right wing opponents are tearing him apart for it. He's being harassed online by RWNJs for his hypocrisy when it comes to racism. The same RWNJs who are openly racist against non-white people in...
...Canada. I agree #CanadaDeservesBetter than this. And #ScheerHypocrisy...and I'm seeing people on the left use whataboutisms as well as rightists. This is why Trudeau is a centrist. Right wing extremists who attack him for being openly racist (him being white doesn't help)...
...are being hypocritical if they openly defend xenophobic/racist attitudes against non-white people, and SJWs are now labelling him as a white supremacist.

If they're progressives, I can understand, but they're being WAY too hostile and extreme. If they're conservatives...
...then if they're racists or racialists, they're being hypocritical in their whataboutisms.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

If Robert Byrd could repent for his racism, why can't Justin be allowed to do the same?
And don't you dare tell me that if a white person was once a racist, he will always be a racist! I am SICK of people crapping all over others for things they used to do (once or twice), especially if they are deeply ashamed of it! I am SICK of call-out culture & whataboutisms...
...constantly being taken to absurd extremes! I am SICK of everyone in politics, left wing or right wing, or even centre, resorting to getting mad and worked up over opinions they disagree with, when they could ignore it, especially if it's disgusting! I get that people...
...deserved to be called out for doing scummy, heinous things, but we have GOT to stop with this authoritarian BS.

I am tired of having to deal with rabid trolls who enjoy getting people riled up for fun, people getting mad at me for saying things they disagree with...
...and people getting hostile and defensive when I try to calmly explain my side of things, especially when I am trying to respect their opinion.

Social Media. The one place you're not allowed to respect others. All you can do is force your views onto others.
THAT is exactly why we got stuff like Gamergate/comicsgate and cancel culture. NOBODY is allowed to express their views without upsetting people. There will ALWAYS be anger and hostility. It's an endless cul-de-sac of hell-bent rage and fury. Nothing positive EVER gets...
...achieved, outside of being clout chasers, trolls, keyboard warriors, etc.

It's hurting us all.

Just stop already.
I hate what social media has reduced us to.
