The Commonweal

There are two things that I have difficulty believing and that is that people who write about racism do so because they wish to improve social equality which to me means promoting justice. For media writers instances of injustice provide opportunities to increase their readers by making it seem that the people they call racists have caused this injustice while they themselves are doing good in spotting and criticising it, reminding me of the people we used to call “browners” who snitched to the teacher about the bad things that they the good kids saw the bad kids do.

The other thing that I have difficulty believing is that the people who talk on television about public transportation, especially city Toronto politicians, know from experience how to improve the efficiency of public transportation: the TTC. The recent nearly halving the cost of Metrolinx fare to Pearson airport because too few of the public were using this public facility also convinces me that Ontario MP’s like their municipal counterparts are out of touch with public transit and the lives of the commons and what it can afford to pay for transportation.
