Hey, what the hell!!! This is Ontario...

...you can't just appoint a school principal... without carefully considering the colour of their skin...

Some questions still lingered about why a white male, George Brown Jr., was chosen as her replacement, a move parents and community members felt was 'insensitive'.

“I'm sure he’s a nice man, but the optics are bad and it couldn’t have happened at a worse time,” said Winston La Rose, executive director of the Jane and Finch Concerned Citizens Organization.
I'm with the JFCCO. I just thank the gawds his name wasn't George White, 'cos that would have been a real thumb in the eye. Obviously, if you're any sort of "concerned citizen" in the GTA... this week anyway... "optics" have to be the biggest item on the agenda.
“The fact is, is that it’s young black males who are dying,” Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo, a crime victim advocate, said Thursday.

“Until we find a way to get our youth engaged, they’re just going to keep shooting each other,” Omololu-Olunloyo said bluntly.

So far this year, there have been 28 gun murders in Toronto. Shockingly, 25 of the victims are black males. There have been 12 arrests in those cases, all black males, many just teenage boys, she pointed out.
Hey, Winston... way to keep your eye on the ball.


UPDATE: When you wish upon a star...
-- TORONTO, Ont. -- Some local hip-hop artists have vowed to stop mentioning guns in their music to try and reverse the recent trend of young black males being shot and killed on Toronto's streets.
Alrighty... problem solved.

"Hes such a nice man but" (hes just not the right colour,)"the optics are bad and it couldn’t have happened at a worse time" said (and implied) executive director of the Jane and Finch Concerned Citizens.

Perhaps George Brown Jr. has a case for the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal with the rule of law being applied 'oh so equally' here in Ontario.

Hey Neo,

If 28 murders out of the 56 total were not committed with guns, does that mean David Miller's policies worked?
