Toronto protesters march against racism, police brutality

Over 200 people marched in Toronto at the ‘Black Lives Matter’ protest, Dec. 13, 2014. CITYNEWS/Tracy Tong

Hundreds gathered in downtown Toronto Saturday afternoon to demonstrate against racism and police brutality.

People marched together from Nathan Phillips Square to Yonge-Dundas Square. The protest was in solidarity with similar marches that took place across the U.S. today. Participants said the demonstration was to protest against police tactics they say are unfairly used against minorities in Toronto.

Demonstrators echoed with the familiar chants of “Hands up, don’t shoot,” “I can’t breathe,” and “No justice, no peace”…

    Canadian blacks screaming about “racism” is so funny!
    Ha, ha – funny, or weird – funny; take your pick.

      It is a little rich.
      The little darlings have absolutely no idea.

        If “black lives matter” and I mean REALLY mattered, they wouldn’t kill each other off at such a rate.
        Not only do black lives NOT matter to the vast majority of blacks, neither does it seem that anyone else’s lives matter either, since they murder at the highest rate of any racial group.

          If they mattered, their fathers wouldn’t abandon them and let them fend for themselves in public housing project.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            …Or abort their babies at the highest rate of any racial group.

        Must have something to do with our history of slavery.

        • Doug Kursk

          All 3 minutes of it.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Did it last that long?

          • Waffle

            I’ve been wracking my brains — wasn’t it back in the days of New France (i.e. prior to that troublesome conquest by the evil Brits?)

  • Jay Currie

    Is it just me or is a white on black flag more than a little I’ll considered.

    • Ed Ellison

      You mean like the Jolly Roger?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Or ISIS or just about any of those jihadi fags.

  • Don’t like it in Canada? Move to West Africa or wherever.

    • Observer

      I am sure they will love Mauritania!

      Time for some crowd sourcing for one-way tickets!

  • Observer

    POLICE NEED TO STOP TARGETING MINORITY CRIMINALS FOR ARRESTS!

    Don’t be racist, sexist or a red baiter! Only arrest white conservative male criminals and let the rest go!

    • Ottawa Eyes

      Did you get those quotes from the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty or the Black Action Defence Committee?

      Either way it sums up what these protestors want and I bet most of them have violent career criminals in their immediate family they are trying to protect this way at everybody else’s expense.

    • jayme

      What there saying is back home what were doing is not a crime soit should not be here.

    • Doug Kursk

      Yeah..I’m a h8tr like that..

      Certainly, you have hit upon all the leftist touchstones in your two sentences.

      Bravo.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    “the familiar chants of”
    You forgot “tiresomely”. The tiresomely familiar chants of … 😉

  • Observer

    Well now I know why the police were diverting the vehicle traffic on Dundas Street yesterday.

    It was not a day to try to drive downtown!

    • Observer

      I wonder if anybody died when ambulances were being delayed by their temper tantrums in the middle of the streets?

      I think it is time the police stopped this risk to public safety and cracked down on all people illegally blocking traffic.

      Take these punks down to Cherry Beach for a nice game of soccer with the officers using them as the balls!

      • Doug Kursk

        Cherry Beach express..knew it well!

    Just curious…Did anyone mention Rob Ford…the first black Mayor of Toronto..?..

    If what these people believe is true, then their energy would be better spent setting up a Booth at the Airports in canada and telling the 1000’s of Blacks pouring into Canada to Go Back , Canada is racists and oppressive, they force you into welfare housings with FREE health care and Education .
    Go Back , the Manual that have ” How To Serve Blacks ” is a Cook Book, GO BACK .

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      They all know it’s a lie. They just want more free stuff and more latitude to case mayhem without punishment.

      Wait till the Pan Am games – watch how many Caribbean athletes trade in their passports for an OHIP card, a welfare cheque and a set of keys to an apartment in Regent Park or Jane and Finch.
      Repeat after me: “I’m a refugee from (insert Caribbean Island name here):”

  • Clausewitz

    “All” lives matter. Oh wait. That’s racist now isn’t it?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      What dreadful sentiment.
      Denounce yourself!

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        We’ll have to get those big dunce caps like the Chinese had during the good old days with Mao. Clausewitz’s would have ‘I’m a racist’ on it. Oh, wait, so would mine. 😉

  • Xavier

    Hands up, don’t truth.

  • jayme

    This is the difference between blacks in the states and here in the states they claim they want to be treated the same in Canada thy want to be allowed to commit crimes such as honour killings.

    Saw this post on a grey early-Monday morning, while still waking up to a first cup of coffee. So Blaze, no thanks, I cannot stand watching a bunch of illiterate bozos chanting pro-crime slogans on a Toronto street. (CBC News and other left-media, of course, think all of this anti-police hatred is fine and dandy).

    I like Ottawa Eyes’ quote, on this thread:

    “I bet most of them have violent career criminals in their immediate family they are trying to protect this way at everybody else’s expense”.

    Exactly. The whole point of this vast rioting-protest effort is to weaken North America’s police forces, in order to strengthen the hand of black criminal gangs. That’s it. Spew the hatred, to support criminal activity by black, and brown, gangs. There is a power relationship here, and black armed gangs want more of it. And these pro-gang rioters have the support of our corporate media cartel, like CNN News, CBC News and the Globe and Mail.

      Take Ottawa there has been 50 shootings this year 90% of those in black areas
      yet when ever someone says changes are needed in these areas the racist card is played.

      • Doug Kursk

        90% black, 10% brown/various shades of yellow.
