So they don't keep stats the same way as the U.S. when it comes to race and crimes, however based on what they do keep is interesting.

Minority over representation in the Canadian correctional system.

So we have to really wonder, why? The U.S. is often compared to Canada even though there's vastly different histories, laws and government.

Although this isn't directly towards blacks, "Canada"s race problem? It"s even worse than America"s."

I don't know much of Canadian history or how much slavery there was, but I guess it's the dirty little secret that has been well kept.
"FACT: Many Canadians are under the assumption that slavery never existed in Canada (or not at the same levels found in the U.S.), which is false. The first recorded slave to arrive in Canada was a six-year-old boy named Olivier le Jeune from Madagascar in 1628. Most slaves were imported from other British colonies and the Americas."

there was a point to all of this but got distracted and forgot while doing other things.

Lol. It is interesting how other people knock us but, upon further review, things aren't much different anywhere.

Now murder rates are higher here but... we also have more people than anyone we are compared too.

See why I tune out during most election cycles? I'd share personally with you but eventually I want to be 'off the grid'. Or go ghost. I've fought the fight... information, debate... and came to a realization, not apathy: nothing I do will change things for the better without violence. I can't do violence anymore, it's anti-thetical to my nature. That encompasses physical, emotional, technological, and ideological.
