Skip to comments.Canadian Music Festival Says Sorry For ‘Racist’ White Staffer Who Didn’t Want To Move To The Back

According to the National Post, performer Lido Pimienta, who won the 2017 Polaris Prize, frequently asks all white members of her audience to move to the back and give up their seats to non-white audience members. They must do so regardless of whether they pay more for their seating.
The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a (white) photographer who refused to acquiesce to Pimientas request during her October 19 show. Her refusal to do so was considered an interruption and deemed an act of overt racism, according to the festivals board of directors, who are now promising to make changes to the event.

Our next Rosa Parks to be a fan of yachting and Polo, maybe..?
She is absolutely free to do this as far as I am concerned. I do not know if it is illegal in Canada though.
I am also free not to even know who she is. If the folks who pay to see her are suffering from white guilt, that is their problem as they dutifully shuffle to the back with the eyes directed downwards.
**** Halifax and the racist idiot performer they booked for that "festival". Thanks Cubs Fan.
She is a blatant race bigot, to be held beneath contempt.
Unbelievable! I hope she stays in Canada.
She has the same “angry cat” face as the Obama girls.
Why would anyone want to go to that kind of concert? If for some reason I attended by accident.... Id be sure to flip the bird. Or hold myself and say heres my white privilege, right here
Must be Lesbo, as in the Man-Hating kind.
I’ll bet Lido does a great cover of the old SNL classic, “Gonna Get Me a Shotgun and Kill All the Whiteys I See”.
She’s an evil cultural appropriator! Seating is a white thing.
How many non-whites were in Halifax at this woman’s concert? She should have bought front-row tickets for them both.
Yeah, that’s going to work.
Guess I’ll toss my tickets for the show. Oh, wait..........
Forgot to add, “Fugly and Stupid”. Soooooo fits leftists these days.
This is the Canadian Rosa parks
Viola Irene Desmond (July 6, 1914 February 7, 1965) was a Canadian Black Nova Scotian businesswoman who challenged racial segregation at a film theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, in 1946. She refused to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre... Desmond’s case is one of the most publicized incidents of racial discrimination in Canadian history and helped start the modern civil rights movement in Canada.
In 2010, Desmond was granted a posthumous pardon, the first to be granted in Canada....In 2016, the Bank of Canada announced that Desmond will be the first Canadian woman to be featured on the front of a banknote. She is slated to appear on the $10 bill in 2018.
The entire area is about 95% white. Why would anyone have to move?
