When racism ruled (Vancouver, Canada)

There is as growing body of work related to the racial and cultural history and experiences of people of color in Canada. 

I spent a lot of time in Vancouver over the years, and many of my Canadian friends from that fine city have discussed racism and oppression in Canada with me since high school  So many things in common, even though we have different nationalized histories.

This is a nice short article from the Vancouver Sun (Canada, British Columbia)

Vancouver has come a long way since the anti-Asian race riots of 1907 to multicultural oasis with an awareness of ‘when we treat others as less than human’
