    So... am I a horrible person for wanting to blare, "Arabian Nights," from Aladdin on a Bluetooth Speaker at a Trudeau press conference to troll him?

    Look at what happened during the production of Miss Saigon:

    Source: Miss Saigon: Casting controversies


    In the London production of Miss Saigon, Lea Salonga originally starred as Kim, with Jonathan Pryce as the Engineer. When the production transferred from London to New York City, the Actors' Equity Association (AEA) refused to allow Pryce, a white actor, to recreate the role of the Eurasian pimp in America.

    So even though the character was half white (French-Vietnamese), a white person was initially prohibited from playing the role.

    Just think how politically incorrect and racist Star Trek is for using human actors to portray Vulcans and Klingons!

    Trudeau comes across as more of a rock and roll afficicado so may I suggest The Clash's "Rock the Casbah."

    No. That's a perfectly normal reaction.

    So it looks like there's pictures of him dressing in black or brown face in three different times.

    Funny things is, it seems like it's just the liberals that get caught doing it.

    Three different times makes it hard to claim a simple lapse in judgment -- and it looks like it might be more than three times.

    Source: Justin Trudeau leaves open possibility of more blackface photos


    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered a fresh apology to his fellow Canadians on Thursday over his blackface and “brownface” scandal — and left open the possibility that more photos of him in the racist makeup could surface.

    Speaking to reporters in Winnipeg, Trudeau said he was “deeply sorry” for appearing in three images with the skin-darkening makeup.

    “What I did hurt them,” Trudeau, the son of late former Canada Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, said of his constituency. “The buck stops with me and I have a responsibility.”

    The Liberal Party leader stopped short of putting an exact number on the amount of times he’s dressed up in blackface.

    “I am wary of being definitive about this because recent pictures that came out I had not remembered,” he explained. “And the question is, how can you not remember that? The fact is, I didn’t understand how hurtful this is to people who live with discrimination every single day.
