The I-word

How long will it take the "race hustlers" to pop up and label this guy... an "Uncle Tom-Tom"?

"This is a biased blog. It reflects a point of view."

"My name is Robert Jago, I live in Yorkville in Toronto, where I am the head of an HR firm. I am a card carrying American Indian, educated in Vancouver and the Middle East."
It's pretty amazing what you can accomplish when you're not sitting around fomenting anarchy.

It can also have its more sombre moments... as you reflect on the cultural luddites who choose to stay behind and stagnate.
"Looking just at natives - we live in over crowded shacks, we are riddled with disease, and we have the smallness of spirit that comes with all that."

"Here’s the difference and the reason I am depressed - we don’t have a dream."

"imran says... Please send us your approval"

this is the second time you have sent me this precise iteration of what appears to be "comment spam".

your generic query, which you likely sent out in some mass-mailing... without even addressing me by name... is extremely unprofessional and despite the flowery language... less than flattering. you couldn't even bother to look up my email address in my blogger profile.

this sounds like a nigerian scam letter.

if you indeed write for the pakistani spectator, please provide me with an email address from their domain.
