June 10: we get letters

Im 77 yrs old brought up and born at Bathurst & Queen area  we had lots of colored people living in the area,if i called a person a NIGGER my mother would give me a good swat, but i never did call them that name. It seems everyone of you bleeding hearts defend other races all the time. But what about the COLORED scum calling WHITES HONKIES, Is that oka. I wonder about you people.When are you going to defend the White people?We are at the back of the bus now.Id like to hear your answer thank you Pat Driscoll.


  1. Eric Weiss says:

    Yes…we white Christian folks have it sooo rough in this country.

    When is the last time you heard anyone call a white person “honkey”?

    • bluegreenblogger says:

      I laughed aloud when I read that too. Pat is still living in the sixties man, that groovy cat should kept on truckin when the brothers and sisters call him a honky!

      • Pete Ness says:

        I get a kick out of terms used to insult whites or english people. I kinda like “honky”, and I’m amused when French Quebecois call me bloke or tete carré (square head). And here I thought square heads were Germans. Like kids say (or used to), “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me”. But those words do give me an idea of what kind of person I’m dealing with.

    • Derek Pearce says:

      Also totally laughed out loud. And it brings to mind this excellent Louis CK clip that is spot on!

  2. VC says:

    Would Pat Driscoll trade places with anyone of “color”[sic]? Maybe Pat would like to be an Aboriginal person in Canada?

    It is better to have a bleeding heart than none at all.

  3. Harith says:

    Haha I love WASPs with a persecution complex.

  4. Chris P says:

    Spoken like a true conservative – that of a simple mind.

  5. Danny says:

    Cracker. I have been called cracker before. Can’t say I get it, and I certainly wasn’t offended. Should I have been?

  6. CdnPolitico says:

    The last time I heard a white person called a “honkey” was on “The Jeffersons”. I think Pat is spending too much time watching “Deja View”. Damn Rogers and their cable packages.

    • Derek Pearce says:

      That’s funny because I instantly though of The Jeffersons too. I guess Driscoll thinks that should have traumatized me as a child?

  7. KBeardsley says:

    I do love it when bigots like this write so ungrammatically – it’s like they’re saving me the trouble of pointing out how stupid they are by doing it themselves.

    It’s also hilarious that our letter-writer here has never used the word “nigger” to describe a “colored” person, but seems comfortable calling them “scum”.

    And seriously, does anyone really ever use “honkey”? I have never heard it used outside of movies or TV.

    • Philip says:

      Don’t forget Mr/Ms. Driscoll’s random use of CAPITAL LETTERS. That’s what separates the true bat shit crazy from all the wannabes.

  8. Harith says:

    There is no real hurtful derogatory name for caucasians because… gasp… they’ve never been an oppressed minority/race!

    • Jason says:

      Can we bit more precise, please? I assume you mean what are commonly called “WASPs” rather than “Caucasian”. Because plenty of (mostly) white-skinned nations/peoples/cultures have gotten it in the neck from their oppressors over time – Ukranians in Stalin’s USSR come to mind, and some would say that back in the bad old potato-famine days, the Irish would have been considered oppressed.

      Understand that I’m not “ranking” the suffering of, say, Ukranians over those of other groups, races, cultures, etc over time (because honestly, how does one rank that?). Just saying that it’s way too simplistic to say that certain groups of Caucasians have never been oppressed, in some cases horrifically.

  9. Torgo says:

    Funny, I can`t remember the last time a white person was prime minister or CEO of a major corporation. I also can`t remember the last time white people had a higher standard of living and average level of wealth than visible minoritie. And I definitely can`t recall the last time the interests of white people were seen as the general societal interest while the interests of such groups as immigrants and First Nations were seen as a `special interest`.

    Yep, summing it all up, I can see it`s a really tough time right now to be a white person in Canada.

    The cops in Montreal were doing random searches and “preventative arrests” without crimes being committed today.

    What’s next, Mr. Toews?

  11. Eric Weiss says:

    Honky is our word!!! We’re taking it back!!!!! We refuse to let you use it to hold power over us and make us feel less than human!!!!

    Honky Pride!!!!

  12. A Jackson says:

    You don’t just get letters, you get Paleolithic letters! Wow!

  13. smelter rat says:

    Well, she’s polite at least 😉
