I Guess This Disqualifies Me From Ever Being Able To Run For President Of Canada.

by Anura Guruge

I am crushed. My mother spend all her adult life doing White Face and nobody objected.

Poor Justin. If it helps, I am NOT offended. I am actually honored. I want more white honkies to know what it is like to live through life with a brown face — especially a brown face like mine. Man, it is hard. A daily struggle.

OK. I admit it. I am not sensitive. Nah. That is not 100% true. There is still a bit of I that is way too sensitive even in my dotage.

I just felt that somebody needs to stand in solidarity with Justin.

I have during my numerous trips to Arizona, spanning four decades, picked up numerous items of Native American art. I happened to notice this one today. I will have to go check if it has a label. cannot remember where or when I got it. Just know I have had it for a long time.

I also just noticed, BLACK FACE!

On the figure on the right it is unmistakable. He has a brown body — not dissimilar to mine.

So, when did Native Americans start doing Black Face? Were they doing it before they ever so an African? I don’t know.

But, what are the implications.

Should the Native Americans, collectively, apologize to the Black Americans for this? I don’t know.
