Election 2019: Racism with a Smile
In a special mini-episode, we discuss the federal election and all the special moments of racism that it surfaced. We dig into the political flashpoints that brought hateful politics into the mainstream - from a former immigration minister celebrating Blackface while claiming to speak for the Black community, to the secret conspiracy signals flashed by the leader of a fringe party welcomed into the spotlight.
This election has the highest possible stakes when it comes to climate action. But we can't talk about a Green New Deal without talking about institutionalized racism in Canada - and how our system devalues and dehumanizes the people most at risk.
