Wow. I had a hard time believing this was happening in Toronto (well...Vaughn) in 2016. Then I realized what an idiot I sounded like even saying that.
There's a way too popular and dangerous myth, pushed by celebs and intelligentsia that "racism will die out with old people". It certainly won't. It reeks of ageist elitism.
I'm sure there are plenty of "racist old people" that were once very young. The mentality and societal structures that make racism an easy default haven't gone away and so racism won't go away either. Click here to read this disturbing report of what's happening in Vaughn schools.
