    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1987
    A focused examination of the right-wing political bias and dishonesty that has charecterized Canada's post-war immigration and refugee policies. Policies were profoundly influenced by the Cold War. The RCMP served as the chief screening instrument, relying heavily on the American-Counter Intelligence Corps which was cooperating closely with the Gehlen group staffed by ex-Nazis. While belonging to a Communist party was grounds for exclusion being an ex-Nazi as early as 1950 was no longer regarded as such. The acceptance of 60,000 "boat" people was applauded by Canadians because they were fleeing Communist opression but the efforts of a few thousand Central Americans were stymied by two repressive refugee bills because they were fleeing the "oppression of our side". Whitacker grants that Canada is a safe haven of peace and freedom but only to those who are ideologically correct.

    First Published: 2016
    Like most gay and equality campaigners, I initially condemned the Christian-run Ashers Bakery in Belfast over its refusal to produce a cake with a pro-gay marriage slogan for a gay customer, Gareth Lee. I supported his legal claim against Ashers and the subsequent verdict – the bakery was found guilty of discrimination last year. Now, two days before the case goes to appeal, I have changed my mind. Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    When Barack Obama raised the specter of race in a March 18 speech that went far beyond what one would expect from the Democratic Party, some of us on the left were hopeful. Since the 1970s, race-speech in presidential campaigns has been increasingly buried in coded language like, “welfare moms,” “inner-city,” “street crime,” “states’ rights” and so on. We all welcomed a shift away from such discourse. By dealing a bit more squarely with the issue, the speech had the potential to ignite a national debate that could grapple with the “racial stalemate we’ve been stuck in for years,” as Obama put it.

    Nearly a quarter of the people spending time behind bars on Riker’s Island in 2008 - one in four inmates - were there because they didn’t have the money to pay bail on a misdemeanor charge.

The advances have been minimal and the need to dismantle this theater of illusions is urgent.
  105. Strange Fruit 
    Why Both Sides Are Wrong in the Race Debate

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2008
    Malik makes the case that most anti-racists accept the belief, also held by racialists and outright racists, that differences between groups are of great importance. While racialists attribute the differences to biology, anti-racists attribute them to deep-rooted cultural traditions which are typically seen as inherent in the group. Malik argues that these positions are actually quite similar, and makes the case that racism and racial inequality are best combatted by focusing not on our differences but on what unites us. Malik also strongly criticizes the cultural relativism of many anti-racists, and their increasing tendency to reject science as some kind of western imperialist conspiracy to oppress the rest of the world.

  111. What Is a Liberal to Do?
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Seventy percent of African-American voters in California voted for Proposition 8 to ban same-sex marriage. Liberals, however, say that opposing same-sex marriage is a form of bigotry no better than the racism of those who wanted inter-racial marriage to be illegal and Jim Crow laws to remain. How, liberals wonder, can African-Americans--the victims of racism-- switch from being champions of equality to champions of bigotry? It is a true paradox. Liberals, by definition, support the victims of racism. But how can they do that when those very same victims are bigoted against gays? Oh dear! What is a liberal to do?

  115. Why Israel? 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    A routine strategy of Israel's defenders is to continually redirect attention to the human rights failings of countries hostile to Israel, or to catastrophes like Darfur that are used to argue the ongoing need for the sort of 'humanitarian interventions' that provide cover for the advancement of U.S. interests. Yet the question of why Israel is being targeted and not some other country assumes, erroneously, that other countries are not being targeted. The reverse, in fact, is usually the case. Often, countries deemed acceptable for criticism by supporters of Israel are already subject to political and diplomatic sanctions by the U.S. and its tool, the UN Security Council -- sometimes for acting in ways identical to Israel.
