2 out of 3 Canadians: Lack of Sexual Consent, Pornography, and Sex Trafficking

I have volunteered to help out abused women before; I have a history of being physically, verbally, and sexually assaulted; and, this is why I was not surprised when I read online that 2 out of 3 Canadians do not know what sexual consent means.

I wanted to know why they did not knew about this simple task so I goggled it online. According to HuffingtonPost article, “Two Reasons Canadians Are Confused About Sexual Consent”, which is written by Diane Hill, most Canadians don’t know about sexual consent because of Sexism and Silence. This article further states the following:

They still think “real” men should aggressively pursue sex and “good” women should resist (and eventually give in).

Aggressive behaviour (by men or usual offenders) and resistance (by women or usual victims) are characteristics of rape not sex. Again, I am not surprised to read the implication that most Canadians see sex as rape.

The above article misses the role of porn in creating aggressive behaviour. Porn is actually a much loved concept among Canadians, which is hilarious given how shy and reserved most Canadians appear. I find it shocking to see that most Canadians are heading that way while not attempting to learn about the actual fun associated with courting, obtaining sexual consent, and then forming and maintaining a real relationship.

Pornhub receives over 3.7 million unique visitors in Canada per month, which accounts for 10.6% of the country, and that’s just one porn site! So clearly, there’s a bit of underreporting going on when it comes to Canadians denying their own love of porn. Source: “Canadians Love to Pretend They Don’t Watch Porn” by Justin Ling.

Just one porn site, Pornhub, receives 10.6% of the Canadian population. I realize why some men at one of my previous workplaces were talking about porn so openly—obviously, I moved away from that office pretty soon. So what exactly is pornography doing to change sexual behaviour and harm the partner/spouse? According to Brian Mcneill’s article “How pornography influences and harms sexual behaviour” males who watched porn visualized pornographic images during sex on purpose. OK! If you are experiencing porn and not sex during sexual encounters, then how are you going to read your partner well? How are you going to tell that you are hurting your partner or just having fun?

Furthermore, I think that if pornography is twisting men’s behaviour, then it can cause rape really easily. For example, some porn involves intimate acts after listening to just a little bit of conversation that is not always considered romantic. Correct! If you study a rapist up close, you will see that he/she acts the same way.

We found that exposure to pornography increased dart throwing at human faces, which is correlated with aggressive tendencies….In particular, viewing violent pornography can increase males’ subsequent aggressive behaviour because it portrays a male’s coercive and aggressive behavior against a female victim as being a reward. Source: “Effects of Exposure to Pornography on Male Aggressive Behavioral Tendencies” by Dong-ouk Yang and Gahyun Youn.

Now think about this! Most Canadians are busy watching porn, which is what’s skewing their behaviour. Men are learning to be more aggressive and thus most women have learned to walk away. I have even met some Canadian women who do not want to have any sort of relationship with men due to their history of abuse. So if there are more and more Canadian women who are like this, then obviously men are watching more and more porn. But, that might be adding more force inside their minds. So what do they end up doing? Well! They are then participating in sex trafficking.

When men use pornography, in that process they are trained as tricks. Pornography is men’s rehearsal for prostitution. Source: “The Problem of Demand in Combating Sex Trafficking” by CAIRN INFO.

This above quote now takes us to the Erika Klein’s article “Human Sex Trafficking: Canada’s Hidden Crime”, which was published on The Mantle.

A booming black market industry, earning $32 billion dollars annually, more than the worth of Google, Starbucks and Nike combined. Human trafficking for the purposes of selling sexual acts, also known as sexual terrorism, is the use of illicit sex, violence and threats to intimidate or coerce to the state of fear and submission. It’s a problem worldwide, but it is becoming more widespread in North America, especially in Canada.

So you see why 2 out of 3 Canadians don’t know about sexual consent? So you see their future given that pornography and sex trafficking remain high in Canada?

Perhaps, it helps to know that Canada’s legal system itself is helping these causes. For example, the article “Why police dismiss 1 in 5 sexual assault claims as baseless” by Robyn Doolittle clearly state some flaws in the process used to handle sexual assault allegations.

Every year, an average of 5,500 people are reporting sexual violence to Canadian police, but their cases are dropping out of the system as unfounded long before a Crown prosecutor, judge or jury has a chance to weigh in.

The result is a game of chance for Canadian sex-assault complainants, whose odds of justice are determined not only by the facts of their case, but by where the crime took place, which police force picks up their file, and what officer shows up at their door.

Earlier in my blog, you must have read that I stated that Canada is actually one of the most dangerous countries to live in. Again, you can see why I think so.

“What’s Next?” Does Not Work in Canada.

A lot of Canadians have an odd attitude where they justify and explain things only to benefit themselves. This holds true for workplaces and private lives. Here are some very odd things that I have heard or observed while living in Canada:

1) Friends who tell the victims that they are their close friends and mean her/him well; but, they do not even call to check on them, not even after four years have passed. Know what is a true friend. 

2) Some White people cannot relate well to colored people. When you talk them about something, they sound really off and uneducated. They think they can just scream about things and get away with it. They even work like this. It’s scary to see them living in their own world especially when the Internet is booming with complaints from the coloured Canadian. Maybe, these kind of White people are self-righteous.

3) Rapists who think they have not done anything wrong; and, their victims who have now Stockholm Syndrome are consenting on their own. 2/3 Canadians do not know what sexual consent means. So if you hear a Canadian man saying ill things about some women, then check his brain and behaviour thoroughly. He might just be a rapist or a strong woman abuser. Their deep narcisstic nature helps them shun the victims and everyone else further by lying and complaining. 

4) Sex Trafficking (lethal sex predators who can double personalities work with younger people and even the disabled in the offices) and trafficking of assets through a Glass Ceiling and Workplace violence is a norm. This is worst in some cities and not so obvious in other cities.

5) There is a food crisis going on for years. I heard about this around 10 years ago from a friend. Here is a complaint by Olivier De Schutter who is UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food. 

At first glance it is hard to understand how 800,000 households are food insecure in a country as prosperous as Canada, ranked sixth in the Human Development Index (link is external). Scratching the surface, however, innumerable reasons emerge to explain the shocking levels of hunger and malnutrition in the country.

The above-mentioned report was from 2012 and here is another one from 2015. The later report states that more than a million Canadians live without healthy food. 

6) Social Security pays really less and they expect you to pay your rent, grocery, and all the etceteras with $500 or so. But the reality is that it takes around $2000 per month to live decently in Canada.

There are more and more things about Canada that don’t make any sense. Canada is number 24 on the list provided in article “The 30 richest countries in the world”. One of my ex-finances, the one who is from Belgium, got married a long while ago—he must be fully settled now (wealthier than before). He was learning Plumbing in Belgium  around 10 years ago; and, he told me that education is almost free in Belgium. He said that this is why it would be easier for me to study in Belgium and open my own business just like him. I was younger and inexperienced back then. And, I felt that it was not going to work out with him so I did not leave for Belgium. Today, I am looking at this list and it states that Belgium is number 25 on the list. This means it’s a bit poorer than Canada, which is known to lock students in a cycle of student debt (OSAP) and offer a very hard-core expectation gap. 

“What’s Next?” does not work in Canada because Canadian government is locking funds away from people and creating an exceptionally wide Rich-Poor Gap.

I landed in Canada in 1997 so all of the stuff that I have described above is coming from experience or by listening to another fellow Canadian. Canada is one of the most wronged country in the world.

Canada’s Double Glass Ceiling: Where Should Canadian Women Go?

Below are some interesting facts of my life that made me think about what exactly is going on in Canada and whether Canadian women should seek to stay in Canada or move away to some other country:

  1. I was an extrovert and was very well-integrated in the society before I came to Canada. I felt that I became very quiet and reserved while living here; and, nobody bothered to find out about me until I came out of this ordeal on my own.
  2. As a Technical Writer, I have to sometimes work in the Tech sector. I am finding that there are less women who work with men in the Tech sector; and, there are more women who are complaining about being mistreated while finding work.
  3. There are times when I see Canadian students give more attention to a lame comment by a male student than to a more informed comment by a female student. Some of them do not bother to attempt to learn why the male student’s comment can easily be regarded as dumb. After graduating and getting a great job, these students are going to actively under-represent women in the workforce.
  4. Because I am an ENFP and thus very friendly and easy-going, I get to hear a lot of personal aggravations every other day from almost everyone.
  5. I have been abused multiple times by men during the interview. This abuse goes from asking me to visit too many times or asking me questions about my religion and culture when I am already too stressed. Most of this abuse was reported to the correct authorities.

According to Marina Glogovac’s article “The challenge for women to smash the glass ceiling”, which was published on The Globe and Mail in 2016, only 0.32% of the female participants of the Canadian labor force (48%) find a job in senior management.

In the 2016 Statista article “Which countries have the most women in senior management?”, Niall McCarthy does not list Canada in the top ten or the bottom ten countries that have the most women in senior management. However, the writer lists Indonesia and China in the top ten list and Turkey and India in the top bottom list.

According to the IT World Canada’s article “Women are seriously under-represented in the Canadian tech sector and it’s not improving: new report”, which was written by Mandy Kovacs in 2017, women are under-represented in the Tech sector. Read my personal experience, point 2.

According to a 2015 article “The Countries with the Most Women Managers Worldwide”, which was published on Expert Market and authored by Jared Keleher, US and Canada don’t make the list of top 10 countries that mostly hire and protect senior female executives. Canada is number 36 in this list, below Jamaica and Philippines.

According to the CNBC article “Companies with more female executives make more money—here’s why. 2018”, which was published by Yoni Blumberg in 2018,  gender diversity enhances a company’s performance—by the way, this article shares the picture of Facebook’s CEO, Sheryl Sandberg, who resembles the Indian actress, Alia Bhatt.

A profitable firm at which 30 percent of leaders are women could expect to add more than 1 percentage point to its net margin compared with an otherwise similar firm with no female leaders,” the report notes. “By way of comparison, the typical profitable firm in our sample had a net profit margin of 6.4 percent, so a 1 percentage point increase represents a 15 percent boost to profitability.

In one of the oldest religions, Islam, female business professionals are given a lot of weight. For instance, Lady Khadija (Prophet Mohammad’s first wife) was one of the wealthiest Arab trader and many female industry leaders were created through her although we don’t have a complete documentation of these other women.

Now, let me give you a cool hint about myself. Many women of my household are senior executives or business professionals. I inherited great business guts this way. This is why when I get severe gut feelings about where my male relatives should be investing and from where they should be removing their money. Every time I tell them that something is wrong with an investment of theirs, then something turns out wrong even years afterwards. This mostly happens with my close relatives and friends. It is also true that sometimes I think and compute like regular humans and other times I get way ahead too fast—when I become different, I clearly hear a voice telling me something and I clearly state that something is wrong.

Here is another hint about my intelligence. Several years ago, a friend of mine—a well-respected Canadian lawyer—briefly discussed the conditions of Canadian women and left the decision of helping out in my hands. I decided to move forward on my own and started discussing and implementing his brain child, “Buddy Program”.  I investigated totally on my own and reported on my blog several times that something was really wrong. I followed my gut feeling again; and, this time I beat the Canadian Feds (see Global News article “New survey details widespread harassment in Canada’s workplaces”) because they had more tools, resources, and access than I did! They only posted this article in 2017; and, I made my conclusions before that by reviewing my personal experiences, talking to mostly women, and reading articles only. You can see a print screen of my older blog, Writer’s Dojo. I wrote my first article about the “Buddy Program” in 2016.

beat-feds

In conclusion, finding a great management job in Canada is pretty tough. A lot of times I am triangulated in a very deceptive manner by multiple individuals so that they may break me down. I am sure that the same is happening to the other Canadian women. I strongly feel that the Canadian women can either fight this oppression or they can desert the Canadian men and flee for a better country.

About Canadian Workplaces: I Was Telling You The Truth!

You must have read my previous posts about how I feel abused while working in Canada and how deeply I regret my decision of coming to Canada.

Some Canadian Workplaces Are Very Abusive Towards Women

Workplace Harassment and Racism Causes Sexual Abuse and Trafficking

Canada Offers a Facade to Its Citizens

Do Canada’s Rules About Employee Harassment Apply to Minorities?

Framing and Misuse of the Canadian Muslim Women

Just today, I found a video on Global News that discusses how Canada has a really big issue that is disrupting her economy; namely, Workplace Harassment.  The video is discussing results of a large survey (90,000 participants) that was recently run by the federal government.  Half of the survey participants reported that they were being harassed, which should tell you about the manner of conduct inside many Canadian workplaces. A good survey has to be representative of the population: the large size of the survey; reliable and detailed statistics; independent source like the federal government; and, how my story is tying in on its own tells you that many or perhaps most Canadian workplaces are unsafe for serious-minded and talented individuals, especially women.

Here is another video about this.

I am documenting everything; and, I intend to share some of my personal traumatic experiences with the rest of the world through my novel, “She The Mirror”.  Just recently, I even tried approaching a Muslim man to help me out who was so ill-informed and uneducated that he tried doubting and questioning me first. He almost made it look like that perhaps I was at fault—he isn’t the first man I have permanently blocked from all my online accounts, cellphone, and life. This is true of most men regardless of their religion and culture—the Global News video clearly shares that mostly its the women who are being abused. In conclusion, you will become very invisible if you are a woman who is trying to work and settle in Canada.

Is the Arrest of Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, a Political Scam?

Just today, I saw the news of arrest of Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam. Before I begin the rest of my analysis, I must comment that I am not that well-versed in Politics because I am usually busy with studies, community work, arts, and writing. However, this news sounds “really bad” to me because it indicates civil unrest. So I read a little about this and jotted down some thoughts.

  1. Nawaz Sharif has been facing abuse ever since he was elected. According to the article, “Nawaz Sharif, Maryam to be arrested: Before polls, a coup creeps up in Pakistan” by Umer Ali, Nawaz Sharif was disqualified in a shady manner after he was elected as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
  2. According to article “We Want Peace, We Are Against War, Says Nawaz Sharif, Puts The Blame On India”, he was planning to work on various democratic concepts including “Peace with India” and “Ending Poverty”.
  3. Nawaz Sharif was arrested in Pakistan on July 13 after he left his unconscious wife in London and traveled back to his people.
  4. According to article “London: Nawaz Sharif’s grandsons released after brief detention”, Nawaz Sharif’s grandsons were arrested by the British over a petty brawl and this case is still under investigation. After further research, I found out that it was Imran Khan’s men from his political party PTI who started this fight. This happened around the same time when these guys were getting arrested.

I think that the arrest of his grandsons—the younger members of Sharif’s family—by the British Police is a big clue in this game. If the British Police can keep the grandsons worried and preoccupied while the Prime Minister and his daughter are being arrested, then it would be easier to hassle the people of Pakistan and the rest of the Nawaz Sharif’s family members. Thus, I feel that I am looking at a political scam that has some international key players as well.

I am also reading Twitter. Some people feel that Nawaz Sharif deserved to be arrested; and, others feel that the media is covering too much about Mr. Sharif’s and Maryam’s arrest and ignoring the killing of 111 Pakistanis that occurred when two bombs blasted during election rallies in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.

So right now, Pakistan is getting bombed; her political leaders are getting arrested; and, some of the leaders are using international authorities to cause further dispute among themselves. Who exactly is orchestrating all of this?

Why You Cannot Negotiate with Trump

Did you notice that whenever Trump appears, he has his mind set about how things are going to be. He sounds way too sure of everything. Watch him tackle one of the CIA Director, Gina Haspel.

Why does Trump sound so stern and so sure? Why cannot people negotiate with Trump properly? Well, I was just reading Chapter 57, textbook, “How to be Successful at Sponsorship Sales” (Allen, S.; 2015).

By aiming high you are more likely to be dealing with someone who can discuss options beyond simply “yes” and “no”… someone who can shape up a deal and not just respond to the situation as it appears at face value. This is an important tactic because if you negotiate at a lower level where only “yes” or “no” decisions can be made, you run the risk that if the answer is not “yes” it will have to be “no” – not ideal circumstances for a win-win outcome.

Decision makers are great at negotiating things and modifying presented ideas so that both parties feel satisfied. I think that Trump never does this because he is not the decision maker but is actually a tool created by someone else.  I feel that someone made him to be the President of America to create drama; and, I also feel that they are butchering his character to appease the world until the countries that are under attack are taken over by America. Its the usual Good Cop, Bad Cop routine that detectives play to make victims do what they need them to do.

Anyways, back to the rest of the subject matter! You must have heard that Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was a business professional who left quite a mark on the rest of the world. Muslim Student Association of University of Alberta has created this document to discuss some helpful details of Mohammad’s (peace be upon him) professionalism. You must have also heard that Trump and some other current business professionals have narcissistic tendencies.  Narcissism is linked to Power and Control, which actually shows not only in behaviour but also in speech.

Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was different because he used to forgive others; establish charity; and, act on behalf of the oppressed. Jenny Dyer’s article “The Only Way to Heal A Narcissist” discusses this concept as quoted below:

We all win when we listen and act.

Whether it’s through charity, educating others, or advocacy, your actions on behalf of others doesn’t just benefit you—it benefits them as well.

Canada Offers a Facade to Its Citizens

Canada offers really big lies to its citizens and protestors and victims are often abused. Ever since I came here, I have gone through so much abuse and neglect that you have no idea; and, I have seen so many other Canadians getting thoroughly mistreated. Most of the times, its everyone else who is participating in abuse through group dynamics and conversations, which is designed to make the victims talk their way and ignore his/her actual comments. For example, let me just point out that some college students usually work together to make the victims do all sorts of things that they don’t wish to dothey have learned to become “Masters of Victim Blaming” through their educational system as well as the rest of the Canadian system. As a results, there are so many Human Rights complaints that are hidden everywhere in Canada going from schools to workplaces. And, most of the abusers expect their victims to work well with their abusers. In my opinion, Canada is actually one of the most abusive countries in this world and this fact is not documented properly because nobody is speaking out─this is why in my young and fresh mind there is a clear demarcation between how abusive individuals communicate and how regular folks do it.

  • I have no clue who can fail students on sexual assaults. But, this article gives you a glimpse into the types of criminal mentality that is being taught through the Canadian academic organizations. Canadian universities are failing students on sexual assault
  • I and some other credible individuals know that Nursing colleges, especially Humber College, have very abusive Clinical Faculty that abuses inexperienced student nurses. Canadian universities are hiding some very hard core criminals. Justice on Campus.
  • Abuse is on the rise inside Canadian Workplaces. This goes from messing up terms of contracts to framing them by using groups to forge documents. I became aware of this when a top executive at the University of Toronto told me that he was framed by his peers; and, when another honest peer of mine won a case against a couple of women who framed him while he was working inside Pall Canada, Mississauga. Harassment and violence in the Canadian workplace; an issue on the rise
  • Human Sex Trafficking is a hidden crime inside Canada because there aren’t many people who will help out with this cause. How can we expect people to help out with this cause when abusers are sitting inside almost every place, like colleges or news channels, that are required to create movements? I once came across a male Sex Predator who was in both Management and Mentoring. How difficult is it to tell who you are dealing with now? Human Sex Trafficking: Canada’s Hidden Crime
  • Mental Health Issues are on the rise in Canada. I have been noticing many mentally sick individuals including students, managers, professors, and librarians. Just a while ago, a librarian (from Algonquin College) noticed me standing near the printer and intrusively started talking to me. I was still checking the printer and I did not fully notice that she wanted to help. So when she started poking the printer, I continued clicking on a specific button as well. Pretty soon, she turned and yelled at me, “You cannot touch this printer while I am working on it”. I was going to say to her, “Hey! I never asked your help and you bumped in on your own”; but, I felt forced to ignore her comment because there are too many of her kind of folks roaming around in Canada. That’s how I have been noticing that something wrong is going on in Canada. I am being forcibly taught this shit and  I have to keep away from so many people to stay sane! These 3 groups are at ‘high risk’ of mental health issues in Canada. Here’s why 
  • Colored students and immigrants are brought to Canada and they are told that they will have a grand life hereI was told the same when I came to Canada. Then, they are abused in a very gross manner and kept behind the “Double Glass Ceiling”. These kinds of lies that are being spread around the world to loot money in return for oppression are an indication of the mental health issues that have always existed at a high rate in Canada. Brain Drain II: Immigrants let glass ceiling gather dust You are going to notice the comment that Canada is becoming very unpopular globally due to this. What’s adding to this craziness is the fact that Hate Crimes against Muslims have gone by 253% over the last four years. Imagine targeting another group through the use of media and technology and you are bound to see a similar increase in abuse. You wonder why we have to read almost every booklet that’s offered by Canadian organizations, which are promoting multiculturalism, that Canada is labelled as heaven for those who love diversity and different cultures? Its actually like living in Hell!

I came to Canada around 16 years ago and I have been noticing strong efforts to keep me in positions where I don’t even use like 25% of what I actually know. Seriously! I appeal to everyone who has been abused while living inside Canada to come forward and start discussing with their trustworthy friends and peers about what exactly is going on. Feel free to share with bloggers or journalists who are aware of this issue and be wary of any traps that can be set to abuse further as you share. Desert those who wish to desert you because you will find more noteworthy partners later on. Remember, the abusers are hitting you on the head as they desert you so that you may develop “Stockholm Syndrome” or “PTSD” and thus become a dummy that will play well in their hands.

I created hashtag #abusedincanada on Twitter. So far, there are only five Twitter posts that are showing under this hashtag. Feel free to use this hashtag and add more. I am adding snapshots here because these should show you what I am talking about. Sorry if it looks like a repeat snapshot. Its just that I have to show you that one post is flowing into the next so that you may not feel that I am cutting some information on purpose.

Canada’s Revolting Crime: Money-Laundering & Criminalization of Colored People

I have been thinking about presenting articles in a creative way to show people how Canada is looting assets of the colored population and then criminalizing them through very refined and pushy methods. These are some facts that I have collected so far and I am sure more and more ideas can be added here to reach the same conclusion. Here are some facts that I feel will help you understand how Canada is becoming rich but sad:

Fact 1: Canada is bringing more people here by marketing International programs. A lot of colored people are coming here with the hope of settling while not having any knowledge of what kind of system and “walls” they will be handling. Why is there such a strong effort to educate international students and immigrants when Canada has such a sketchy and old expectation gap where the workplaces are asking for something else and universities and even some colleges are teaching something else? The programs for which the Domestic students pay around $6000 require around $14,000 from the International Students. And, that is not it! Some college programs are designed and run in a haste and some courses inside those “fast” programs almost force students to “not use real Databases like Statistics Canada to extract relevant data” and “create imaginary content only”. Another example is when the post-graduate programs are marketed to attract graduates from any other Canadian university or college; for instance, Event Management program easily attracts students from Biological Sciences, English, and Communication. Then the students are given an assignment that should technically take some thinking from a research paper so as to create an imaginary report that seems to be at the graduate level. Let us assume that there is a question that involves finding out who will come to a specific kind of event that serves only certain foods and music. In reality, this kind of question can be answered by reviewing research articles that are found in databases like ScienceDirect, but students aren’t provided a list of relevant databases to explore at all. Why are they expecting that a Biological Sciences graduate or an International Student would know some of the databases required for Event Planning & Marketing? Another example is when Event Management students are asked by their Computer Application teacher to create only a Survey as part of Market Research. College teacher usually spends only around one hour explaining this kind of assignment. Excuse Me! High school students can do this. Why are they running this kind of assignment without giving them loads of information that’s at the graduate level? Why are they not running something more concrete and heavy like a “Focus Group” instead? You know that’s tougher than running a survey. Thus, some employers are just catching on the Expectation Gap and throwing away whoever they want to.  Here, read this article to see what I am trying to say.
Fact 2: Canada’s entire system is very color coded. This is true for the health care system and the labor market. For example, I know that the White graduates are asked less questions than the Colored graduates because I have seen this happen in real life. So its usual for some employers to say, “So you wrote a paper without using actual databases like Statistics Canada. What do you want me to do with it? What’s its point? A kid can generate this.” But he/she might not say this to a White graduate. Try Dodge Balling that!
Fact 3: Canada has a double glass ceiling almost everywhere. University campuses that produce colored graduates but hires and promotes mostly White people are just one example of the double glass ceiling. There are many more examples and you just need to learn where to find them. One great way of finding these examples is by talking to people, especially students. I say “talk to students” because most of the Canadian students are freakishly well-educated and knowledgeable.
Fact 4: Canada allows colored people including Brown, Black, and Aboriginals to be jailed even for very minor offenses. There are also queer cases like Toronto 18 where most of the colored men who were arrested were later released.
Fact 5: Canada has a Rich-Poor Gap and we all know that poverty is linked to crime. Poverty can also be created by isolating minorities from the majority, which is how you will still find that “Brown people like doing business with Black people”.
Fact 6: It is very easy to make innocent people say that they are guilty; believe they are guilty; and then tell everyone that they guilty. I think that most of the colored people who are being jailed in Canada were trapped through use of circumstances and lies. James L. Trainum’s book “How the Police Generate False Confessions: An Inside Look at the Interrogation Room” shares the techniques that are used to brainwash victims into believing that they are the “real hard-core criminals” or the “new, protected, and loved informants”. But know that these techniques do not work on everyone. What if the only free men from the Toronto 18 case were those on whom these techniques did not work? What if the rest are jailed because these techniques worked on them? Is this why we do not have much exposure to how these kind of cases are being run.

So, what really is going on here?
