Reader Offers Thoughts on Trudeau Brown-Face Issue

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

We have become just plain silly. We are making such a fuss about the picture of Trudeau in brown face. It was a Theme party of the Arabian Nights! If the theme had been royalty, and he went as the king would it have been offensive? If it had been drag and he went as a woman, would it have upset us knowing he is not gay? Maybe going as a wolf to a zoo theme would upset the dogs? No one has mentioned that the Aladdin he portrayed was elegant and sophisticated. That is not racist, it is respectful and detail oriented! Politicians give us so many things to get upset about, why are we creating something extra?

Sincerely,

Roberta Docherty, Meaford
