UQAM co-op excludes white comedian from shows because of his dreadlocks

Cultural Appropriation, they ban the white comedian from performing cuz of his ugly ass dreads.

i mean... i can't fault them for that, that should be country wide policy to ban white guys with dreads, or just all dreads.
Dreadlocks predate the slaves killing all the white people in Jamaica.
Dreadlocks - Wikipedia

Young boxers with long dreadlocks depicted on a fresco from Akrotiri (modern Santorini, Greece) 1600–1500 BCE

There is an awful lot of we need the US to get our guys back in the article. It's kind of weird.
The liberal ideology is alive and well in Vancouver and Victoria. It’s like Canadians like being skull fucked by the Chinese. It’s only when we found out it’s laundered money has people’s views of the Chinese changed. Fucking ant people, all of them.

So dreadlocks aren't a black people thing? U sure those aren't kangz?
those arent Knagz and they arent half dindus either. every culture. EVERY race has dreadlocks in their past. even the fucking Vikings. as lejina said. lack of hygiene isnt exclusive to black people. though it being attributed solely to them is pretty interesting.

Chinese are laundering their money out of China everywhere. It is not just Canada. Chinese government actually find this behaviour unfavourable since capital is leaving their country but truthfully I don't blame them....

2016: Cyber Security Expert Detected Chinese Hack in Ottawa, Warns Against Using Huawei 5G
A Chinese telecommunication company secretly diverted Canadian internet traffic to China, particularly from Rogers subscribers in the Ottawa area, says an Israeli cybersecurity specialist.

The 2016 incident involved the surreptitious rerouting of the internet data of Rogers customers in and around Canada’s capital by China Telecom, a state-owned internet service provider that has two legally operating “points of presence” on Canadian soil, said Yuval Shavitt, an electrical-engineering expert at Tel Aviv University.

The 2016 Ottawa area incident that included Rogers was part of an attack in which Canadian internet data bound for South Korea was rerouted to China over a six-month period. The diversion of the South Korean data was first documented in a report last fall co-authored by Shavitt and Chris C. Demchak of the U.S. Naval War College.

The report described how China Telecom uses two points of presence in Canada and eight in the United States to take “information-rich” internet traffic crossing its network—part of the ordinary working of the internet, in which packets of data pass through numerous servers on the way to their destinations—and reroute it through China with no noticeable effect on customers.

China Telecom did not respond to a request for comment. Rogers declined comment and referred the matter to the Public Safety Department. Public Safety and Global Affairs Canada did not respond to requests for comment.

The Shavitt-Demchak report called internet points of presence the “perfect scenario for long-term espionage” because local alarm bells won’t be raised “about the long-term traffic detours.”
Canada reduces presence in Cuba after another diplomat falls mysteriously ill
The Cuban government is criticizing Canada's decision on Wednesday to halve its embassy staff after a 14th Canadian fell ill to an unexplained illness in Havana.

Josefina Vidal, Cuba's ambassador to Canada, says the reducing embassy personnel in Havana will do nothing to help find the cause of a mysterious ailment that has affected Canadian and American diplomats. Canada and Cuba have been co-operating to find the cause to the mysterious set of circumstances, but the Americans have criticized the Cubans over the matter, walking back major improvements in their strained relations that had begun under former U.S. President Barack Obama.

Canada's decision comes after a new report concerning a diplomat who arrived in Cuba in the summer who was found to have symptoms on Dec. 29 of the mysterious illness that causes problems including nausea, dizziness, headaches and trouble concentrating.

The Cuban government has said the Trump administration is using the issue to roll back new measures instituted by the Obama administration to re-engage with its Caribbean island neighbour after five decades of tensions dating back to the height of the Cold War. The U.S. withdrew most of its non-essential diplomatic staff in September 2017 but Canada did not.

Officials said the government made assessments based on "evidence" in taking its various decisions to gradually reduce Canada's diplomatic footprint in Cuba, which hosts an average of one million sun-seeking Canadian tourists annually.
