Justin Trudeau put on black face 18 years ago, it is wrong, when I saw the images, I was disturbed, there is no word to explain it better. He has presented his apology and expresses his regret. I have watched him over the years as a Prime Minister,
a champion for human right, a leader, he has championed equality and inclusivity in Canada and across the world. Justin Trudeau has evolved, his records for the past 4 years speak for him.
Last night, I meet Harry, Harry is Canadian, a white man in his 50s. But to my surprise, Harry’s background is Kenya. He told me his father is Portuguese but he was born and raise in Kenya. His background led us to talk about racism and he said this,
there are bad people everywhere, it has nothing to do with colour or ethnic group.
This is a philosophy I believed in as well. He went further to tell me what his father once told him,
“Explore the world, taste all cultures, because if you don’t at the end, it is your loss.”
Justin Trudeau has evolved, he takes full responsibility, he has apologized without reservation he has handled it as a leader. Apology Accepted, we have moved forward.
