Comment of the Week

Re: "John Furlong biography omits secret past in Burns Lake"

Interesting how most of the mainstream media chooses to ignore the allegations of racism in the story and instead focuses on the physical abuse element, basically saying that "it was a different time then and everyone got smacked around, even white kids". It's much easier to justify alleged violence in the past than it is to condone alleged acts of racism, past or present. [read story]
