Pot. Kettle. Not hard to connect the dots here.


Blogging Tory and diversity proponent Brian Lemon learns that there are some things even he can't handle:

Jason Kenny [sic] to Host BLACK ENGAGEMENT DAYS

I hate having to do this sort of thing, but until this gang starts using their brains, I will... This comes from the Ryan Sparrow School Of Communications Stupidity...

This is the most patronizing thing I have seen in my many, many years of observing politics.

And if anyone knows childish, offensive patronizing, it's Brian. He's kind of an authority on the subject.

I'm finding "pot/kettle" is pretty overused these days.

I think Lemon has a point. Conservatives are ass-backwards when it comes diversity.

One of the beauties about Canada's black community is its own diversity...blacks in Canada, in addition to coming from long-established communities in here, come from all over the world. I remember taking some friends from the anglophone Caribbean to Montreal and they were surprised that people addressed them in French. It wasn't until I explained that in Quebec, people generally assume black people speak French rather than English.

The Conservatives are only reaching out to "ethnics" to get votes. They don't really give a damn about diversity.

There is no diversity at these conferences. It's all a feel-good load of crap.

I think I handled it quite well as it was. I dont post these things to make you happy Cynic. But hey.... I've evolved in the last couple of years.

Oh, maybe don't give yourselves THAT much credit.

Brian, what you (or rather most Conservatives) do inherently makes a cynic happy. ;)

Well, credit where credit is due. Past and present.

humour>Just a quick note: evolution does not happen within one generation; it is a culmination of traits selected over hundreds and even thousands of generations.
Furthermore, one or two abberations from the norm are not usually statistically signifigant.

pot/kettle, evolve, perfect storm. As in, the BTs haven't evolved - they are still the perfect storm of pots calling the kettles blacks.
