41. Gee Muriel, your outrage shouts!

I've attended a few stage productions of Othello and it's been nearly always played by a white man. Sorry I didn't know about Robeson -- how remiss of me.

And I'm not making "excuses" for Trudeau singing a song written by black man FOR a black man to sing, unless it is to suggest that he should have picked another song. I guess only songs written by people of a certain race can only be sung by those of the same race? And was he mocking African-Americans by attempting to look like one, so that the song would have more meaning? I'm pretty sure NOT.

He was in a high school talent show, in Montreal. Please don't equate what might/probably wasn't racially charged in Montreal to what it has been (and sadly, still is) in the US. Remember, your black slaves escaped to Canada. And Montreal now has a huge population of Haitian refugees.

I'm so, so tired of the opposition bringing up stuff that happened so many years ago, just to score points. Trudeau's main opponent is an anti-abortion, demonstrably homophobic, anti-green deal, pro-oil sands conservative politician. And his team have taken pages and pages out of the GOP/Trump playbook.

At this rate, we won't have any decent, caring people with maybe a few embarrassing incidents in their past to actually run for political office. Sad.
