CBC panellist calls Lindsay Shepherd a “crying white girl”

From the non-reactions of the other two media panellists (Ottawa Citizen’s Susan Riley and Globe and Mail’s John Ibbitson) as well as the host John Northcott, it’s apparently perfectly acceptable to use white-racism in order to smear someone on CBC News as Metro News’ Vicky Mochama did.

You can watch her call university free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd a “crying white girl” and dismiss her as someone who “leans hard right” politically on CBC’s political show Sunday Scrum at approximately the 7:10 mark

There’s absolutely no way the CBC would allow anyone to use such a racist label to describe someone non-white and would be immediately fired for doing so.

I will be filing a complaint with the CBC ombudsman and update after I receive a response.

    Good. I’m quite interested in what comes back. I’d call them out on double standards. Bill D.

  2. Frances Says:

    You will – sadly – be wasting your time. This is, by CBC logic, a perfectly normal response to a white woman encountering bullying and harassment.

  3. Sean M Says:

    I look forward to the CBC’s obtuse response and their firm defense of the hateful and racist “black girl”.

    Thanks once again for holding these people to task, or at least attempting to – I’m sure the CBC will have some excuse for this racism… like if it’s used towards whites it can’t be racist.
    Same B.S. time after time.

  5. Andrew Says:

    Don’t forget the inherent misogyny in this statement. Just imagine anyone dismissing women in the workplace, women in politics, or in even video games as tearful manipulators of men. Also, she’s not the only one saying this about Lindsay Shepherd.
