A Canadian club bans white comedian because he has DREADLOCKS branding his hair a ‘slap in the face for decades of slavery’.
The appropriately named Snowflake Comedy Club said Zach Poitras’s hairstyle was “a slap in the face” for “colonialism, slavery and cultural genocide”.
In a Facebook post, they argue that “it is a privilege to be able to wear dreads as a white person”.
Poitras has so far not commented on the ban, comedy website Chortle reports.
The Coop les Récoltes bar and co-operative at the University of Quebec at Montreal, which runs the comedy club, admitted a white person with dreadlocks may not have a racist intention.
But it added: “Cultural ownership is a vehicle for racism whose consequences are real.
“‘We live in a society where systemic racism is present and where the spaces where people who are marginalised can feel safe are very rare.
“The Co-op Les Récoltes aspires to be a space where these people will feel comfortable. We will not tolerate any discrimination or harassment within our spaces.”
You just discriminated against some dude because of the way he wears his hair, you idiot.
I’m sure the comedy is a laugh riot in this joint->
