In 2017, it’s basically impossible for people to be racist anymore because we’re all just coexisting and everyone is treated equally, right? Try again.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Made a Really Problematic Post About International Women’s Day

Following Canada’s most recent election, in which Justin Trudeau became the newly elected Prime Minister of Canada, admiration ensued globally. Most of the admiration was due to the new PM’s good looks, with people across the world awarding him the nickname “Daddy Trudeau.” It wasn’t only his good looks that earned this admiration though, because this new PM was a breath of fresh liberal air, as Trudeau was open, welcoming, and non-discriminatory.
