A video shot last month at the St. Jean Baptise Day parade in Montreal has sparked controversy after some overly sensitive types noticed the men propelling a particular float are black while those standing atop the float were white.
Making matters worse, all those honkies are wearing white garments, the colour of choice for the KKK.
Because it’s 2017, the obvious conclusion many came to was that the float was championing slavery and was therefore, racist.
Cue the social media outrage and the mainstream press attention that would further the narrative.
But on sober second thought, the real story behind this perceived outbreak of white supremacy at the parade, could make for a “teachable moment” when it comes to those social justice warriors who see racism everywhere and anywhere.
Watch as I explain the whole story including the ironic social-justice reason the float was human-powered rather than combustion engine powered in the first place.
