?? Perhaps we should bundle a few up and ship them to NB? I always thought people went to live where they want to, not to go live somewhere the demographics are evenly distributed.

well, yes, you do sound a bit racist, but, what does people being racist have to do with whether or not there have been people moving into your area?

I have found that the further out of big cities you get, the less racially diverse things become. living in Northern BC and Northern Alberta you could only expect to see two different skin tones, plain and simple. It didn't mean people were racist against any other colours... people just hadn't bothered to move there.

But don't we have an obligation, as citizens of a multi-cultural country, to fulfill someone's desire that his women look a specific way?

lol

Will I do, Mr. Mapleleaf67? I am brown (almost black in the summer). Have me back in BC in a day or two or my hubby will come hunting, though.

Well you could try Halifax, I've heard they have a fairly large black community there. Really though if you want real black women get your butt to Toronto. Lots of them around Jane and Finch. I'm not talkin' hookers either. Real down to earth black women. True.

Mapleleafs67, eh1eh is right, there is a substantial population of blacks in the neighbouring Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia was the last stop on the Underground Railroad when slavery was legal in USA.

Many of the slaves who escaped their masters ended up in Nova Scotia. Places like Halifax, Preston etc. have plenty of blacks.

Sir Joe; you've never been to North Preston have you? You might last 6 minutes, they shoot at police cars regardless of the colour of the driver, Harlem is safer nowadays. There are fine folks of all races here but some make a point of wanting theirs to be dominant, and forcibly so; sound familiar?

I'm not trying to start a battle, but unfortunately that's just the way it is. I've never experienced racial tensions like this since I was a kid in Detroit in the 60's. It's like Deja vu all over again.

Racists come in all colours, find a place where race doesn't matter to anyone and you'll find a place to meet nice folks of all races. I've lived in a few places like that, very few. Good luck with that.

There aren't many blacks in Canada.

After living in the US, its odd coming back to Canada and not seeing any black people.

I kinda wonder why they would want to live in the frozen north anyway. This is definitely white Anglo Saxon weather (and aboriginal but in the east their DNA is very much European mix from before the invasion.)

Maybe you should try Halifax to find a black date. There is a uniquely large black community compared to other parts of Canada. On per capita basis there are more in Halifax than the GTA.

That isn't racist in the least. In reality most of things that people term as racist aren't even close to being racist.

let me clarify....

i've always found the notion that black people are a novelty to be coveted based solely on their skin to be an odd bit of race relations. When a friend says they want a black baby because they are *so* cute, rather than just a baby that needs a home. When a woman says she wants to have sex with a black man, just to have sex with a black man. When a man says he likes his women like he likes his coffee.... it's bizarre to me to value someone based solely or mainly on skin tone.

Why do white women spend so much time and money on a tan?

It is more than just skin colour. There are physical and cultural characteristics that are appealing as well. Personally I think black women have the nicest eyes.

You don't mean those licorice nickle candies do you? (sounds racist doesn't it but in reality that statement isn't)

Welcome to the commercial mindset where even children are now products.

Personally I find it very appalling and immoral that someone is that commercially brainwashed that they would adopt (most are cash deals these days) based on physical attributes.

I wouldn't let someone like that raise a puppy let alone a child.

I remember crossing the boarder at Windsor into Detroit when I was about 7 - it was like going to Africa. Being a hick from Calgary, I'd never seen so many black people in one place that was not in national geographic photo spread.

There's lots of black people in Ottawa, now.

Only 12% of the US is black. That isn't a very high number

I did not say that Preston is a good place; I have never been to Nova Scotia. What I said was that Preston has significant black population.

I remember CBC did a special a few years go on prostitution in Toronto. They said that many of the pimps come from Preston. So it may be that Preston has a shady reputation.

My point was that places like Halifax, Preston have many blacks, being the last stop on the Underground Railroad.

That may not be a very high number, but it is a significant number. Besides, black population is not uniform, but concentrated in a few places. I remember when I lived in Salt Lake City; there were hardly any blacks there. In quite a few schools there wouldn’t even be a single black student. Or when we visited Yellowstone recently, we saw very few blacks in the parts of Montana and Wyoming that we traveled.

On the other hand, pars of New York, Detroit etc. look almost like Africa.

It is different strokes for different people, karrie. I have no problem somebody valuing someone based solely or mainly on skin tone. I would have a problem with somebody despising someone based solely or mainly on skin tone.

I don't know where you are looking, but in Saint John and Moncton, there are plenty of people of various ethnic origins.

Can Canada come up with a similar figure? (12%)

How about 25% of American kindergartners are Hispanic. Can Canada match that. Who really is truly the more multicultural nation, and who will be by 2023?

There is no doubt that USA is more diverse than Canada, ironsides (though Canada has become plenty diverse in recent years). In USA they imported blacks wholesale as slaves and thereby added to the diversity (without meaning to). There was not similar import of slaves in Canada.
