Canadian anti-racist blogs worth checking out.

There are 2 Canadian anti-racist blogs that some of us here at Toronto S.H.A.R.P. really like. We thought we'd share them with you, so please feel free to check them out.

First up, is a blog that has been around for a little while now. Anti-Racist Canada, also known as the ARC Collective. This blog was launched November 30th, 2007 after the live Journal version was shut down. The ARC blog covers neo nazi activity all over Canada, posting stories and information all the way from BC to NB, with a touch of humor added to keep the blog from being a depressing read. The comments section after most posts is something to make sure to check out. It's amazing to see how many boneheads are convinced that the ARC Blog is an ARA (Anti-Racist Action) Calgary blog, even though the writers have said time and again, while they support ARA for it's anti-racist stance, it is a completely different entity and not part of ARA Calgary (even ARA Calgary say ARA and ARC are different).

The second blog is a newer player on the scene. Nazi Watch Toronto, which was launched on June 24th, 2009 as a reaction to the now defunct Red Watch Toronto blog. In less than a year Nazi Watch Toronto has posted quite a bit of information on local GTA boneheads. This is a good little blog to see who is active in Toronto, and also uses a dose of humor, mostly to mock the boneheads featured in it's posts. With a new Red Watch Toronto blog being discovered, Nazi Watch Toronto seems to have kicked it up a notch.

Both blogs are good reads, and worth checking out.
