      I use adblock because I don't want youtube getting making money off of me. I know it hurts the channels I follow especially because I am poor and can't really support my favorite channels. But, I do try to comment and thumbs up channels I love as well as share content I think friends and family will like with them.

    As a Canadian, I almost exclusively see my country discussed in popular media when we've embarrassed ourselves. Trudeau can't even recall how many times he did blackface...

    The whole blackface story seems more like a joke. One side calls the other to take "responsibility" for smth he did 20 years ago while he was young. A... i cba even finishing this train of thought as how dumb it is and clearly a political move and any1 buying into it is a retard.

    Vaping is the only thing that got me off cigarettes. I went from two packs a day to a half a juul pod a day. The super high nicotine content is why I think that specific product worked for me. I used mango, and since that is now banned I had to switch to mint and classic tobacco which is making me crave cigarettes again. Sometimes flavors really are the best option for adult smokers trying to quit. I hope to quit nicotine entirely by December, but I’m not going to lie, my juul is what got me through this first month. (big waste of money vs other pod systems/mods though, and fuck that company)

    So... in the early 2000’s we had a high school production of Ragtime where the black female lead was expelled from school a few days before the production. They put a (very white passing) Hispanic girl in a heavy spray tan/mild blackface (don’t know how else to describe it) and it was so awkward. There were no other options for casting, and there was so much money put into that production. It still haunts me to this day.

    I think the fact that he was 29 at the time is a big factor. If it was something he did as a young adult or a minor I think it would be less of an issue. At 29 you should really know better.

    Not saying I’m voting for Trudeau but if we switch to conservative federal government I’m going to have major problems with my fellow Canadians. Like Ford and the conservatives are already screwing Ontario, I’d like to at least have a federal fall back.

  • AnnaYed

    Canadian here: my issue with the entire Trudeau story is that people are saying this is only about racism, but honestly, it's just being used against him because of the election. Whoever found those pictures probably had them for years, just waiting for the election to start. I agree that his behaviour was inappropriate and racist, but it's not even being used for the right outrage. In my opinion, if we didn't have an election this month, we still wouldn't have even heard about it.

    Grandfather by father side started smoking when he was 10 and My Grandfather by my mother side started chewing tobacco by the age of 6, my first cigarette...I was 13 and all my friends did it... is up to the parents not the government to look out and control what their kids get their hands on, that said is clearly a conflict of interest cause the government doesn’t care about the peoples health. Now before you differ ask yourself, Is the government giving me free access to healthcare or just letting me die if i cant pay? are they regulating the amount of cars per family to avoid contamination? are they planning on massive birth control to avoid running out of resources? How many preservatives and chemicals got on your meals today are they regulated by the FDA? If you are a felon can you get your hands in a gun? why they serve junk food on most of the schools in America? Are they banning Soda drinks? How clean is your tap water?

    Jesus christ dude... I'm not condoning what JT did by any means but fuck man, context matters... It's not a "mockery" of ones race/skin color to dress up in a costume, if anything it shows admiration as you are choosing to want to embody the person you're dressing up as... Like... Context matters.... He still shouldn't have gone so hard with the costume but like fuck dude, people need to chill... By that logic fucking sue any cosplayer. Sue any actor. RDJ fuckin did full on make up for the movie Tropic thunder. Cosplayers regularly do full body makeup to do characters, like Raven with grey skin, or Widow Maker, with Blue skin. Should women who put on make to make their skin look a fairer white be considered racist because they have imperfections that they are covering up with white skin tone make up? Like this is a fuckin rabbit hole to be sure, but also people evolve and yadda yadda ya, it was 20 YEARS AGO. Damn dude. Fuck sake I almost just want to be done with society at this point lol. I like a select few people and I'm good, aside from that I just wanna live in a fucking forest town existing purely of my friends with no outsider bullshit. (Don't mistake me either, I'm not saying I'd surround myself with yes men I hate that idea, my friends and I disagree regularly to say the least, and we balance each other out but we do so with civility and at the end of the day we are still best friends.)

    Really, TVclip? You get presumably thousands of complaints about ACTUAL issues with your site every day, and the Verification Badge is what you want to focus on? I refuse to believe that this issue constitutes more than 1% of the total number of complaints TVclip receives, so I'm having a hard time understanding why the hell they really want to devote time and resources to that feature, especially when they have to know that it's only going to result in EVEN MORE COMPLAINTS about the new feature not working properly! I just don't understand TVclip anymore...

    Trudea would have to do a lot worse to sway me. I don't think the black face/brown face is relevant to who he is today and his ability to be a P.M, and the corruption scandal doesn't have enough objective evidence and has too much gray area IMHO. In sum, he still has my vote.

  • krylesangerbeaver
    krylesangerbeaver 2 months ago

    None of those politicians give a shit about blackface. They just see it is an avenue to attack a political opponent. If people of color think these other politicians care about your history from 50+ years ago, they don't.
    They just want an extra vote.

  • Shannon Feigenblatt
    Shannon Feigenblatt 2 months ago

    I think we should try a new approach to "banning vaping because children are doing it", preferably one that makes more logical sense. One that makes the parents of these kids realize that this is no joke, gets them on board to trying harder to stop them, and involves them with remedying the problem with "incentive". Kind of like what most places do for truancy.

    I completely agree that in this case, he was being insensitive and offensive, however the 'never a reason to darken your skin' part, I have to disagree. People see black makeup and instantly jump to the conclusion of it beingintended to mock someone. My town used to have a festival, for hundreds of years, in honour of the coal miners where the dancers would smudge coal on their faces; the entire festival; at least 4-500 years of history, got shut down because someone misunderstood. There ARE times when it's not being racist. :/

    Look at the numbers of tobacco smokers dying verses the amount of vaping incidents. If it wasn't the Tobacco companies worried about profits than why is there such a heavy ban towards vaping and not tobacco.
    I also find it very weird that most stories covering the vaping deaths have not included the THC liquid that was bought illegally from drug dealers.
    I've been vaping for 6 years. I buy my juice legally from a trusted business and I don't mess with the weird flavors just menthol. I've had no issues and never met anyone who has had difficulties.
