"Great city, but it's not America. And you feel it when you're there, I'm telling you. Especially as an African American. It's a different situation than African Americans are used to being in,"

So Canadian cops don't shoot them for existing while black and Canadian politicians don't try to take away their votes?

Yeah. African-Americans are so used to being second class citizens, it sure feels weird living in a country where they treat you like a real person.

 I'd bet Toronto passes the cred test more than several American cities with basketball clubs.

Even using his alleged criteria, he may as well say "don't go to Portland, Boston, Minneapolis, Phoenix..." at the same time.

Black people are two times as likely to have an interaction with Toronto police, and 1.6 times as likely to have force used on them, a report has found.


Those are rookie numbers Canada. Step it up!

I still remember when the Blue Jays won their first World Series - and how pissy Bob Costas was that 'America's Game' had been won outside of the US.

Broussard/FOX is doing this with Durant/Toronto - except now mixing in xenophobia, racism, and anything else they can think of.

"The idea that the Toronto police are less racist than their American counterparts is a "myth," according to the head of the Ontario Human Rights Commission."
https://www.google.ca/amp/s/beta.ctvnews.ca/national/canada/2020/6/19/1_4989794.html

Absolutely not fair -- Kevin Durant has just as much likelihood of being shot by cops in Toronto, as in the US.

I'm sure Sterling Brown will back him up about this after all it was the Toronto Police that stopped him outside a jewelry store in a white neighborhood and tazed him. Wait, nope that was Milwaukee.

Ok bad example as Milwaukee is so segregated they could just about paint a line where "your place" starts and ends but still...

This one's tricky.  Much of the north is water/ice. By surface area Canada is the 2nd largest country.  America however considers those waters in the north to be international waters and not Canadian territory. By land surface area the US is larger than Canada.

Yeah I guess it's a matter of technicalities and perspective

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/is-canada-bigger-than-the-united-states.html

Also would help if my morning reading comprehension didn't see the word country and process the word city.  I thought they were saying Toronto was the largest city.  Long weekend, delayed Monday morning.

To the point of the article, Toronto doesn't really attract free agents, their biggest acquisition was kawhi leonard in a trade and he left immediately and they practically promised him the city, the have lost tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, derozan(wanted to stay) for kawhi and Kyle Lowry.  Can't blame the weather, the bucks bulls pistons(not as much) get free agents.  Maybe it's marketing potential?

I moved to Milwaukee from the delta where white trash meets hillbilly in southern WI and thought they were pretty racist.  Like my dad still says colored and that's considered almost polite in the older population. But then I came here and was like wow, they figured out a way to maybe make racism worse.

He's still a top 5 talent.  Just don't surround him with shiat-for-brains like Harden and Irving and he should be able to show something special yet.  Toronto is well-managed.  If they don't have to give up Barnes in a deal, they could make it work very, very well.
 
2022-07-05 11:00:24 AM  
The point he was making is that in America people treat him as a scary black guy and a white women will clutch her purse more tightly or cross the street to avoid him. He likes that power. In Toronto he's just a normal guy

There's lies. Damned lies.  And statistics.

Toronto likes to claim diversity based on half of its 3 million population. Whereas NYC has over a 1/3 of its 10 million population as diverse. I think that's based on being non-local, so counting 2nd gen etc etc much higher.

Toronto's claim is like saying a town with 10 people and 8 are foreigners, it's the most diverse town on the planet
