White people targeted for racially abuse in Canada’s housing projects
One of Canada’s biggest websites, NationalPost.com, is shining a spotlight on the anti-white racial harassment that occurs in Canada’s housing projects. While the vast majority of all tax revenue comes from white taxpayers, white residents in public housing are relentlessly harassed by their non-white neighbors.
A Calgary mother who claimed her white family was the victim of racialized bullying in a mostly black neighbourhood hosted a community barbecue on Saturday with the hope of bringing the area’s children together.
Blair France and her husband moved into Shaganappi Village, a southwest affordable housing complex in November. But the couple says their family, which consists of two girls ages seven and 12, and an eight-month-old son, have been bullied by other children in the neighbourhood. France said there have been instances where scores of children have gathered on her lawn, screaming and throwing rocks at her family’s home.
“They have racially slurred my children,” France said. “They’ve called my children ‘white crackers,’ one boy that I found out called (my daughter) a ‘marshmallow’ and ‘white-skinned people’ and that we’re poor and stuff like that. We’re all in poverty, so we have to all understand that.”
France will be meeting with Calgary Housing this coming week. In the meantime, the family hosted a barbecue on their front lawn Saturday, drawing hundreds of children of all ages who also participated in arts and crafts.
