The country is so rich in culture it is a wonder why native-born white Canadians are continuing to keep such negative thoughts hidden, only to come out when they have the power to accept or turn away a visible minority. Research by Esses et al. (2007) has shown that White Canadians are often uncomfortable around visible minorities and would rather be around people of their own ethnic group. This is…
