Tundè Balogun of the Objective News Agency on the Trudeau blackface revelations: “His latest scandal comes as no surprise for members of intelligent Black society, for we are all too familiar with anti-Black racism white supremacy. We understand that the white supremacist with a smile is just as dangerous as the one with a scowl. We understand, that racism is economic, and this latest scandal of Black/Brown face is the actions of a man with an iron grip on the institutions that choke the life out of us daily.”

Tundè Balogun: For anyone reading this article who is not familiar with Halifax and Mulgrave Park in particular, they would think it is a ghetto with graffiti everywhere, and residents that don’t take pride in where they live. Thus the community needs outside help to clean the mess they themselves have created. If CBC’s editorial staff allowed an artist outside that community to speak about budgets and people being left behind, it would also be fitting to speak about a community totally shut out of a $30 billion project.
