The left likes to say we should be colour blind on matters of race and that we’re all equal.
Yet now comes a recommendation by York University that Ontario school boards collect data on students’ race, ethnicity, religion and gender identity.
According to educators, such demographic data could assist them in making learning more inclusive and help tackle “systemic” racism.
Watch as I provide a case in point:
Back in 1989, then Toronto Police staff inspector Julian Fantino dared to release such crime statistics at the behest of Committee on Community, Race and Ethnic Relations.
Not even that spared him from a huge backlash. One can only imagine what Black Lives Matter would have done if they were in existence back then.
The take-away from this quandary of collecting and publicizing race-based stats is that it’s clearly very, very bad and very politically incorrect, except when it isn’t.
