– A man who posted a racially charged post about the “white genocide” of indigenous people has apologized.
In a Facebook post that was later deleted, the man wrote that he was “deeply saddened and ashamed” and that he “couldn’t have said it any better.”
In his apology to the community college community, he said his post “offended” him, and “that I am a racist, misogynist, bigot.”
“I am not someone who likes to talk about myself,” he wrote.
“I have a history of being insensitive and insensitive to people of colour and to people with disabilities.
I did not mean to offend anyone.”
Cascade Community College released a statement Tuesday, saying it had received the apology from the man.
“The university is aware of the Facebook post, and we are investigating,” said a statement.
Macdonald said he had received death threats and “hate mail” since the post went viral. “
We have taken appropriate action, including an internal review of our policies and processes, as well as contacting our law enforcement partners to provide assistance.”
Macdonald said he had received death threats and “hate mail” since the post went viral.
He also told CBC News that he felt “sickened” by his actions.
His Facebook post was made on Tuesday, Jan. 20, two days after he wrote: “The white genocide is real, it has been proven, and it is happening again.”
The man was quoted by the Toronto Star saying that “in the past 50 years, the indigenous population of Canada has been decimated.
The loss of so many lands, territories and cultures has been catastrophic, but the genocide continues.”
The genocide is happening now.
There is no way around it.
“Since his post, Macdonald has received death and hate mail from people who “hate my culture, my culture,” he told CBC.
He said he is “shocked” that some people have posted their racist opinions about him.
MacDonald told CBC that he believes racism is “not a thing to be ashamed of.”
“What I said was not meant to offend anybody, I didn’t intend to offend.” “
[I] don’t want to say I’m going to be sorry, I’m just going to say this,” he said.
“What I said was not meant to offend anybody, I didn’t intend to offend.”
His post came after another man posted about “white privilege” and how he was a victim of “white racism” on Jan. 17.
The Toronto Police Service released a photo of the man on Tuesday afternoon.
Police said Macdonald was not charged with any offence.
CBC News has reached out to the man for comment.
