Inside The Ontario Food Terminal
October 7, 2007 | BolgTO | Tim

The Ontario Food Terminal (OFT) is the largest wholesale fruit and produce distribution centre in Canada, and the third largest in North America after LA and Chicago. It sits on a 40 acre lot at the foot of Etobicoke. Nestled next to the Gardiner Expressway, the OFT is in full view to thousands of Torontonians every day on their way in and out of the city but few have ever entered its doors. It's not open to the public. It's a strictly wholesale operation and a vendor permit and $155 fee (paid every two years) is required for admission.

As Public Sector Sheds Jobs, Black Americans Are Hit Hard - NYTimes.com
November 28, 2011 |NYT | By TIMOTHY WILLIAMS.

The central role played by government employment in black communities is hard to overstate. African-Americans in the public sector earn 25 percent more than other black workers, and the jobs have long been regarded as respectable, stable work for college graduates, allowing many to buy homes, send children to private colleges and achieve other markers of middle-class life that were otherwise closed to them.

SOMETIMES RACE IS SIMPLY A FACTOR
October 31, 2002 | National Post | Christie Blatchford

As the Star study also apparently revealed, black people represent almost 27% of all violence charges such as homicides, sex assaults and gun-related offences -- a percentage way out of whack in a city where, according to the most recent census figures, only 8.1% of Torontonians described themselves as black.

(Interestingly, the headline on this story, which read ''Black crime rates highest,'' was corrected the next day, lest anyone got the wrong impression: It was true, the correction said, that black Torontonians accounted for the highest amount of violent crime, but that did not mean they have the highest crime rate, ''which the Star's analysis of Toronto police data did not measure.'' Huh?)

Freedom to be oneself
Oct 14, 2002 |The Globe and Mail. pg. A.12 | Editorials.

. In dismissing Mr. Powell's position as a reward for mere servility, Mr. Belafonte would deny him the most fundamental of freedoms: to seek and find one's own identity.

This is an insidious form of racism.

It is the flip side of the long-discredited statement, "he's a credit to his race" -- an insistence that each black person carries the burden of his people. White people do not carry such a burden. They are judged as individuals and their behaviour does not rebound on others. In Mr. Belafonte's worldview, black people must behave in a prescribed way (i.e. not join the Republican Party) or else they are, in essence, traitors to their people. That is a suffocating box for anyone.

The need for fathers
Nov 29, 2005 | The Globe and Mail. pg. A.20 | Wayne Harris.

I am a Jamaican-born Canadian. It disheartens me to see Selwyn Pieters (Boys Without Dads -- letter, Nov. 28) and others claim that "systemic racism" in institutions and schools is "forcing black kids to drop out" and that this is part of the "big picture" of why black youth is in such a quandary.

Your editorial (The Many Fatherless Boys In Black Families -- Nov. 26) says it like it is. The root cause starts in the home, not the community.

If the fathers were there to guide, teach, nurture and lead, then the community would not have to provide focused counselling and intervention.

The need for fathers
Nov 29, 2005 | The Globe and Mail pg. A.20 |Brian P.H. Green.

First, no neighbourhood in Toronto is a ghetto. Lodz was a ghetto. Warsaw was a ghetto. Jane/Finch or Malvern certainly are not ghettos. A ghetto has a way in, but no way out. The casual over-use of this word exaggerates the hopelessness of some of Toronto's communities. And it debases the memory of people who were truly persecuted.

Second, if you can't get a "decent job" -- in Toronto, no less -- when the economy is operating at "full capacity," then maybe there's an argument for taking personal responsibility, instead of blaming society or institutionalized racism.

The need for fathers
Nov 29, 2005| The Globe and Mail pg. A.20 | Carol Richards-Sauer.

Your editorial rightly claims we need to admit that the absence of black fathers contributes to social alienation and violent behaviour among some of their sons. The silence that you decry, however, is not universal.

Recently, I have participated in a town-hall meeting and been in the audience at a round-table discussion about gun violence.

Each time, at least one brave black person from the audience spoke about the issue. Each time, their comments sparked little discussion or self-evaluation.

The topic is rarely addressed because too many community leaders, often self-appointed, have become too focused on blaming forces from without that we can't control as primary or sole causes of black disenfranchisement.

We need to recognize also those forces from within that we can control. We need to characterize ourselves not just as people to whom bad things are done (racism, police brutality, school suspensions etc.) but also as people who make choices that sometimes lead to bad results.

This is necessary to make any true change and to win helpful alliances

Boys without dads
Nov 28, 2005| The Globe and Mail. pg. A.14 | Robert Sciuk.

Finally, someone has had the guts to stand up and speak the truth of the dysfunctional family and the impact that growing up fatherless has upon the children and the teens of both sexes within the black communities (The Many Fatherless Boys In Black Families -- editorial, Nov. 26). While The Globe brings to light the issues, it holds back from stating the obvious fact that our government provides financial incentives to perpetuate the situation.

In Canada, we have strong, state-sponsored financial incentives for unwed teenage mothers to have and to keep their children, even in the absence of a caring nuclear family with which to provide a proper upbringing. Perhaps it's time to adjust the way we help these troubled teens to avoid unwanted conceptions rather than reward them financially for having babies.

Fatherless, yes, but no statistic
Oct 21, 2010 | The Globe and Mail. pg. A.21 | Haille Bailey-Harris.

So one day, she went to the principal's office and the two of them developed a plan, a sort of intervention to ensure I didn't end up as one of those statistics. This was the plan:

Find other role models. My mom made sure I was surrounded by very positive adults, male and female. I'm lucky to have two big brothers, who've been great father figures, and one of my uncles sort of took me under his wing. And I was lucky to have teachers, two women in particular, who really believed in me.

Create a community family. Big Brothers and Big Sisters provided a great big sister for me. We waited for a big brother for a year, but there weren't enough men willing to join up, they said. And now I have a mentor through their program, too. My mom also enrolled me in programs offered by the school, community centre, church and public library that all helped me to feel accepted.

Nurture a love of reading. Instead of banning me from video games, my mom got me games that also required me to read (like Pokemon) and encouraged me to get books (even comics) that interested me. Gradually, I wanted to read books and, eventually, I wanted to read everything, all the time.

Do community service. My mom and I volunteer in our community because giving back makes you feel good about yourself. I've already finished the required volunteer hours to get my high-school diploma by helping kids read at the public library, and working at a homeless shelter and for the Raptors Foundation.

Eventually, with the help of our battle plan, I grew wiser and realized I had great potential (as do all children, no matter the circumstances). I started to try harder in school, I found better friends and became a role model myself.

The many fatherless boys in black families
Nov 26, 2005 | The Globe and Mail. pg. A.26 | Editorials

...Yet as politicians at all three levels and black community leaders scramble for answers to the anarchy, no one has dared talk about the crisis of fatherlessness in the black community.

The silence is inexcusable. Growing up without a father present is now the norm for many black children in Canada, particularly those of Jamaican ancestry. Nearly half of all black children under 14 in Canada have just one parent in the home, compared to slightly under one in five of Canadian children as a whole, census figures from 2001 show. Two in three Jamaican-Canadian children in Toronto are being raised by a single parent...."without strong, self-sacrificing, frugal and industrious fathers as role models, our boys go astray, never learn how to be parents (or men), and perpetuate the dismal situation of single-parent homes run by tired and overworked black women. The black family as a survival unit fails, which leads to the ever-fragile community collapsing along with it."

Poor neighbourhoods in Toronto are crying out for involved fathers. The city's deputy police chief, Keith Forde, who is black, says that invariably when he speaks to predominantly black audiences, two or three mothers approach him to be a Big Brother to their sons. "Nothing hurtsme more in all I do in policing than hav-ing to say no to these parents."

Girls' lives, too, are deeply harmed in fatherless communities. At least a decade ago, Mr. Forde heard from 13- and 14-year-old girls in Rexdale, a dangerous suburb of Toronto, that the boys were insisting: "If you want to be my girlfriend you have to get pregnant for me."...The "survival unit," the black family, is being fatally weakened by the lack of fathers. No matter how helpful social programs, additional police or tougher gun laws may be, they are not the heart of the problem. Reuniting fathers and children should be the top priority. Where are the black fathers, and where are all those who should be calling them to their duty?

Rap: harm and alarm
Dec 2, 2005| The Globe and Mail pg. A.22 | Steven Taylor.

Once again, Margaret Wente has aired some important realities about the issue of insidious hip hop (Get Mad, We're Bein' Had, Gangsta Rap's Really Bad -- Dec. 1).

I'm a teacher, and I have so often seen young black boys -- who seemed perfectly contented coming out of elementary school -- turn into swaggering gangsta mimics who brood under their huge hoodies, suck their teeth at teachers and slap their girlfriends.

This "cocky, confrontational cadence" that Ms. Wente identified is exactly the chief problem they face. It even seeps into and erodes their literacy skills. They won't listen, they barely speak and they can't write.

The wall of silence in Toronto's killings
The Globe and Mail. Toronto, Ont.: Nov 22, 2005. pg. A.22

Young black people tempted to adopt the urban gangster culture in Toronto now know they can kill with impunity. Canada's biggest city is in a full-fledged crisis of violence, and at the heart of it is a wall of silence in parts of the black community that protects killers.

On Friday, one of the most shocking killings in the city's history occurred. An 18-year-old man was shot dead on the steps of a church during the funeral of his 17-year-old best friend. This killing may be unprecedented in North America, says Police Chief Bill Blair, who has discussed it with the heads of several U.S. police departments. Even in Jamaica, which has a murder rate nearly 40 times as high as Toronto's, funerals are apparently off-limits.

Separating races is not the answer
Oct 12, 2005 |The Globe and Mail. pg. A.22 |

...And why does it want this? Because black youths are shooting one another in the street. Ergo, says the coalition, society is failing black people. The school system, the justice system and the police are failing them. Even multiculturalism is failing them, because it presupposes an open society of equals rather than the real world in which blacks face racism and discrimination. Multiculturalism "doesn't allow us to focus on communities that are in crisis and need a targeted approach," Margaret Parsons, the executive director of the African Canadian Legal Clinic, told a Toronto newspaper. "It does not address racism."

This is quite stunning. Agencies that have been sitting on the sidelines for years have decided within two months that they have the answer. When community activist Dudley Laws declared in the summer of 2001 that at least 94 black youths had been killed by other black youths since 1996, the silence from black community groups was deafening. Now those groups wish to pick up their ball and bat and go home.

Segregating people by race, voluntary or otherwise, is not a solution. It compounds the problems of poverty, exclusion and related pathologies, including rampant fatherlessness and its flip side, out-of-control youth. Creating separate offices and separate schools, and tearing down behavioural codes that apply to everyone, will send a destructive message to everyone: that people do not have to live together, that separate is not so bad as long as it is equal.

What Makes a Difference - WSJ.com
FEBRUARY 26, 2003 | WSJ | By ADAM WOLFSON.

Mr. Wood locates the origins of the modern diversity movement in President Johnson's 1965 executive order authorizing the use of affirmative action in federal contracting. The policy quickly spread to other sectors of society.

In its early years, affirmative action was rationalized as a means of making up for the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow and other forms of discrimination -- a kind of reparations. But even in this relatively benign form the policy was open to challenge on the grounds that it violated the 14th Amendment's guarantee of equal protection. Eventually the Supreme Court weighed in with Regents of the University of California v. Bakke (1978). But not conclusively or even coherently.

The case concerned Allan Bakke, who had been denied admission to medical school in favor of less-qualified minority candidates. In a confused decision, the court agreed that quotas were impermissible under the equal-protection clause. But Justice Lewis Powell's opinion -- which no other justice signed on to -- included a passage that would prove momentous: He argued that the goal of "attaining a diverse student body" provided a "constitutionally permissible" justification for racial preferences.
[Book]

An idea now with nearly the same stature as equality and liberty. Why?

The curious thing is that, before Powell's opinion, the diversity defense of affirmative action was almost unheard of. It may have been, as Mr. Wood writes, "in the cultural air," but it was at best "a fairly marginal idea." If proof were ever needed that ideas -- including marginal ones -- have consequences, this was it. Diversity was soon everywhere. Today, Mr. Wood observes, it enjoys nearly the same stature as equality and liberty in the American pantheon.....Meanwhile diversity provided cover for a cultural revolution in higher learning: In its wake followed multicultural studies, sensitivity seminars, political correctness and speech codes.

Is Group Identity Bad for Culture? - WSJ.com
DECEMBER 24, 2005 | WSJ | By TERRY TEACHOUT.
Not for Blacks Only. Why group identity is bad for culture (except when it's good)

That kind of pigeonholing is what the Oscar-winning star of such films as "Unforgiven" and "The Shawshank Redemption" must have had in mind when he complained about Black History Month in a recent "60 Minutes" interview. "You're going to relegate my history to a month?" he asked Mike Wallace. "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history." The way to stamp out racism, he added, is to "stop talking about it. ... I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man."

At a time when the angry irredentism of identity politics has blighted so much of America's cultural discourse, those are fighting words, defiant and inspiring. By speaking them in front of millions of TV viewers, Mr. Freeman stood up for his own individual excellence as an artist. But he also pointed to a different, equally important question: Is group identity -- race, gender, ethnicity, religion -- truly irrelevant to art? Or can it be used in a way that is not polarizing but "inclusive," in the best sense of that heavily freighted word?....Herein, I believe, lies the test of the utility of identity politics, cultural or otherwise. Is it inclusive or exclusive?

African Canadian Legal Clinic in turmoil over shocking audit.

the leak of a thick audit conducted by the clinic’s funder, Legal Aid Ontario, over the last week, all hell has broken loose. The document was sent to media, including to this reporter, by a clinic employee upset by the audit’s contents.

The audit, released in April, raised questions about the possible misuse of funds and inflation of client numbers, and pointed to the existence of "weak internal controls with respect to the payment of expenditures.’ Documents suggest that some $418,000 was received from various funders but not reported to Legal Aid Ontario, which backs the group to the tune of approximately $628,000 yearly.
