Well given that over 2M peeps were there, it's amazing that there wasn't more confusion.

I'm watching Toronto TV and the sheer joy being expressed by young and old is lovely to watch.

They have black people in dem graves also.

We are talking about Canada where subtle racism exists.
It's not out in the open as in the USA.

A month ago I saw some white Canadians spewing racist comments towards a Chinese couple, I intervened and I was called racists names.

They are lucky I didn't get my hands on them, I would have kicked their rass. Having done so on numerous occasions.
