And encourages Canadians to learn from it:
For Canadians the Derb Riot is a terrifying glimpse into America’s racial polarization. Down that road we must not travel. In a small way this racial warfare already exists in Canada, though our permanent racially based underclass is aboriginal rather than black. Should it ever expand into the wider Canadian culture we would be doomed. A nation as diverse as ours would balkanize itself quickly if the type of two-tier treatment of aboriginals became the norm.
Darn straight. We should consider ourselves lucky, we’re less polarized than our friends to the south, on such issues (and that aboriginals make up such a small minority, that they’re not a voting block with any real clout).
