The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Pascale Diverlus live from Canada. Ms. Diverlus is the Vice President of Equity at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. She along with other black Canadians organized a protest following the lack of indictment for the shooting death of Michael Brown, Jr.. They constructed a Facebook event titled: Black Lives Matter: Toronto. On the page they listed specific rules for White and non-black people to follow if they planned on attending. Please refrain from taking up space in all ways possible. Remember that you are there in support of black folks, so should never be at the centre of attention. Stand behind black folks or between us and the police. Their counter-racist code sparked a significant White backlash. Some Whites accused them of being reverse racists and segregationists. We’ll ask why they chose to institute these rules and how Racism has impacted them north of the US border.
