Joseph Boyden On Harper, First Nations, The Election, And Canadian Racism

2015 Canada, is it a racist country?

Absolutely. Yeah, of course we are. Let’s put it this way, if you believe Canada is a post-racial society, you’re probably white and you’re probably male. Racism is alive and well, but we’re a much more polite racist than Americans. I live in New Orleans, I know what racism is all about, I’ve watched it for 20 years. It’s direct, it’s ugly, it’s bitter, it’s angry.

And what is under anger? Fear.
