Well, after all that stuff about the Milwaukee paper, here’s a letter to the editor straight outta 1845 from today’s Globe and Mail — authored by one Wayne Valeau of Calgary:
The Black-Eyed Peas are a perfect fit for the CFL (Imported Peas — editorial, Nov. 29). What we saw at the Grey Cup’s half-time show was a mirror image of what we saw on the field.
Centre stage was occupied by imports, predominately black. Surrounding them, in the shadows, was the Canadian talent, which may have been superb for all we know.
The most messed up thing about racial politics in Canada are the people who actually think white Canadians are so enlightened that there isn’t a “problem” here.
