U of T’s Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office Bans Humour

U of T’s anti-racism office bans comedy poster

“But after complaints raised by the U of T’s Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office, the committee hosting the duo at the U of T campus told the performers to replace the poster with something less objectionable.

“The Anti-Racism Office was a co-sponsor of the event and felt that if its name were on the poster, they could not use the image,” explained Tamar Berger, special projects co-ordinator for the U of T’s Hillel organization, one of the show’s sponsors. “On a single poster, we could not place the image of Larry Jay Tish in a context.”
