I wonder if they carefully selected the clubs they tried?

I have heard that black people are so rare in Canada, that racism isn't the problem, so much as crowds gathering to gawk.

Sad to hear that. Most people think only America is racist.

Yeah, that is not the problem. The problem is that there are racists in Canada, just like in the U.S.

And blacks are not the only ones to get it. Making fun of natives seems to be socially acceptible in most circles here, almost like a sport. Seriously, it is pretty bad.

Yeah, it didn't help that it was filmed there, especially Calgary.

There's a little bit of fact to that. At least around Vancouver in the 80's. I remember me and my military friends would go up there and the black guys would get all the attention.

We have plenty of black folk and, sadly, plenty of racisim as well. However, you want to see another sort go to Vancouver. Asians in certain places there have an utter disdain for the white folk (although some might agrue with good cause considering what we did to them during World War II).

Oh yeah, and everybody makes fun of Newfoundland.

I, personally, just hate everybody equally.

I learned that if I'm ever confronted by a Canadian lawyer all I have to do is untuck my shirt. He'll shriek and run away like a little girl.

I'd be wearing baggy clothes if it was only 10 Degrees outside... Oh, wait, Celcius, that's right...
