Canada Post’s recent Black History Month issue is getting some backlash, including from the mayor of Summerland, B.C.
“I know it is Black History Month. But, really? Commemorating segregation? And “Colored”? Not only is it spelled the American way, but colored is a colonial/Jim Crow (southern U.S.) word,” wrote Mayor Toni Boot. “Why doesn’t Canada Post instead, commemorate abolishing slavery in CANADA?”
What does everyone think of the Colored Hockey League stamp and its use of the term “colored”?
