Josiah Wilson is African by race, but legally, culturally and ethnically identifies as a member of the Heiltsuk First Nation after being adopted as a baby.

    Maybe he could be our new G.G. Trudeau wants someone diverse for the job. Although it would be better if he was homosexual as well.

      All he has to do is say he’s a tranny and they’ll be putting rainbows on all the uniforms just for him I mean her.

    When it comes to racism, some of the undocumented immigrant descendants of Siberian aborigines are the very worst.

  • Rainbow warriors are always offended.

    No amount of diversity is ever correct.

    If *I* “legally, culturally and ethnically” identify as an Indian can I get welfare?

    How many roads must a man walk down, before they call him a man?

    Dr Wilson – Josiah’s father – would not necessarily have Indian status had his father been white and his mother native, and they were married. He would have been considered white back in the day. Native women went to court and this rule was successfully challenged although the native men weren’t happy with the new ruling.

    Also wonder how the Wilson family would fare back at Kanesatake and other Mohawk reserves where the right to live on the reserve seriously depends on blood-lines.

    The natives might have an argument here. African blacks naturally jump higher than natives. Having this guy in the tournement woud be unfair.
