4. But not all Causes

 

Look, these guys are Canadian: if they want to alter their country's anthem, fine. But Canada doesn't have anywhere near the level of racism that we do. It also has very restrictive gun laws. Congrats to Canada on both counts!


BUT

"All Lives Matter" is a politically-charged slogan in this country that is used by a lot of white folks to trump (no pun intended in this case) "Black Lives Matter." It's total bullshit, and to have it echoed by a foreigner whose country doesn't have to deal with the same problems that we do is offensive to me. /rant.
