Most people have no idea what it means, these are the same people who might actually believe that "derka, derka" means something in islamic or to other middle eastern people. HINT: it means fucking nothing you racists. (although it is kinda funny, and team america is a hilarious movie).

I seriously despise VancityBuzz and this article further fuels my dislike for the site and the people running it.

And the co-founder should know better posting stuff on his site that never should have been posted and feeds xenophobia whack jobs, imagine if someone posted his picture and called him a "terrorist" because of his turban...

Really? How many? because I looked all the way back to page 1 and other than a couple of posters, I don't really see much making issue about the individual's race or religion but more so the action in question itself.

Unless you're trying to paint a certain picture generalizing typical western individuals based on a few posters, maybe consider that you are no better than the people you vilify.

so this is the reason those guys were taking pictures,

Quote:
Late on Friday, Global News learned what that logical explanation was. The youngest of the three males is a 14-year-old from England with vision impairment, and the two adults with him – his father and a family friend – were taking additional photos and video so he could better remember his visit to Canada after the fact.

“Because they don’t see well, they take more photos,” said Dr. Weidong Yu of the Wellspring Clinic, who said the family was in Vancouver so the child could receive treatment from him, and that they phoned Vancouver Police from his office Friday morning.

“It’s an innocent accident.”

I wasn't speaking about RS, as i didn't even begin to enjoy reading the updates on here yet when i posted, was speaking more along the lines of in the office, facebook, and the vcb articles comments section

edit: to add, I never said everyone responding to the incident was racist, you should note I said there was a line between being concerned and being racist, I said many had crossed that line, and that is true, but not all

think this applies to those going 'better safe than sorry'
Quote:
What if these 3 innocent men were assaulted or worse because of this fear mongering caused by Buzz? Worse yet, what if the apparent racist commenters were stirred up to vent their anger on say, refugees celebrating their arrival in Vancouver? How can you sit idly by and berate those mocking the bigoted fear mongers among us? Don't you have any shame?

Or let's play devils advocate and say, what if these 3 were as we feared, and upon news that they've been identified they decided to carry out plans ASAP, well there goes the chance of the police identifying the suspects and pouncing on them before anything is committed.

It's a tricky spot to be in.

These guys were just going about their day and vacation.

The shitty part is with everything going on in the world right now, regardless of right or wrong, people are going to be paranoid.

I'm just glad this got settled quickly no one was hurt. At least, not physically.

You actually think that's happening in Canada? We have had Muslims in this country since the 1800's and I have heard of no Muslim organization wanting oppressive sharia law here.

as I said, if they were teenage girls taking pictures at shopping mall, nobody would've given 2 shits about it.

yes, so many studies have shown you will be judged by how you look. yes, it is unfair, but the reality is, the world is unfair. get over it.

Not saying this to agree or disagree with you but there have been quite a few high profile, so called "honor killings" in Canada and US. This obviously does not mean that there is an organized group calling for this however it would definitely point to certain people coming to Canada and bringing certain cultures here.

My brother is working in the news/journalist industry and has traveled all through the Middle East, most recently in Yemen while all the airstrikes were going on and has said that SOME people that come to North America are actually more strict because they is obviously a lot more influence than when they were back in their home country.
