The seemingly frivolous blackface Trudeau engaged in 18 years ago and the hard core racist bullying that Nhlanhla Dlamini was subjected to at work in Pictou County are in essence not all that different, writes Judy Haiven.

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.”
