A Canadian English professor says that because canoers are generally white men, the boats are a symbol of ‘colonialism, imperialism and genocide.’

Misao Dean, who teaches at the University of Victoria, made her remarks during an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

“Certainly the majority of wilderness canoers are people who have a very privileged place in society,” she said. “They’re frequently highly educated people. They’re almost completely white.”

“We have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into something that seems ordinary,” she also stated. “But I think if you look a little further that narrative obscures or erases another narrative – and that narrative is about, to be blunt, it’s about theft and genocide.”

Dean went on to suggest that all non-indigenous people rethink canoeing.

Judging by those statements, it seems Dean is a bit fuzzy on the actual history of canoes.

While canoes are prominent in indigenous history, as Andrew Cross mentions in the tweet below, people from virtually every culture used some sort of canoe throughout history.

In fact, the oldest-known canoe on the planet actually came from the Netherlands.

So much for Dean’s moral pandering on behalf of indigenous people.

Even academics chided Dean for her asinine comments, to which the self-proclaimed ‘old-school feminist’ cried ‘oversimplification and anti-intellectualism.’

    This will only be rectified when all Brown people are required to travel by canoe everywhere, as part of affirmative action.

    Almost all White! Are you making fun of me and my skin disease,Vitiligo, That makes me almost ALL WHITE? AND a canoe was the first boat I was ever in!

  • C.d. Gibson

    I could swear that canoes came from the first people here on the N. American continent. Even if they did not, what the heck difference could it make? What is racist about canoeing? Oh wait. I know. Blacks are too lazy to work at their transportation is that what she’s saying? Why is it that the ones who seem to have the most education are the stupidest?

    I find it interesting this coming from someone from Canada. I go up to Canada frequently. Good friends in Canada. What I see in Canada, from Vancouver to Ottawa to Calgary to Toronto is miles and miles of white people. Canada is the whitest country in the western hemisphere. You can’t tell me Canadians don’t hold their noses when they cross that bridge and come into Detroit…

    Mental insanity amongst people seems to occur pretty sudden and this really got me off guard.
    While the world certainly has more pressing matters some people manage to put world hunger, poverty and war aside to blast the real demonic vessels called canoes.

        If you were a real liberal you would be very offended by that.

          • d.dolcater

            Congratulations! An open-minded liberal IS something to be proud of. They are few and far between. It’s usually “my way or the highway”.

            The confusion seems to be the word liberal. You appear to be whats known as an old school liberal. The intolerant “liberal” who gets offended by everything that goes against the narrative is more properly adressed as a Progressive and is anything but.

          • That’s a pretty great way of explaining it. The left is seeing a shift too far left, just as the right has seen a shift too far right with TP. A few months ago I opined that the moderate, more open-minded from the left and right split off to form a truly valid third party. I’m dreaming, off course, but it’s up to us on both sides to keep “the canoe”, as it were, from tipping too far and capsizing.

          • Michel Maiorana

            As far as these idiots who get their panties in a twist over cultural appropriation go. What they are to blind to see is every thing in all civilizations has been appropriated from someone else. Who knew the barbarians in modern society would be those who are supposed to educate our kids?

            “Dayna Hamilton a day ago
            She looks pretty white to me. If she hates white people so much she should just kill herself. I’m so sick of these self-hating “educated” elites telling everyone else how they should live their lives.”

          • Edwin Alexander

            Foul language does not become you Son. If you were a Liberal before he was born…. then you were a CLASSICAL LIBERAL. I do not hear people of that age using foul language as you do. You probably think 45 is old…Not the same thing as a “LIBERAL” today. JFK was a CLASSICAL LIBERAL. Notable individuals whose ideas have contributed to classical liberalism include John Locke, Jean-Baptiste Say, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo. NONE of those people were the Liberal of today.

          • Uh, I’m a Boomer, and I drop f-bombs. I have a large arsenal. I do it to make a point, express a feeling, or in disbelief when somebody can’t grasp a simple concept. The f-word is thought to be one of the most useful words in the English language, because it has so many meanings; it’s incredibly versatile. It’s been used for centuries, and has actually become pretty acceptable today, here in the US. There are some pretty intelligent people who use it quite often.

            The only writer, of those you mentioned, with whom I am unfamiliar is David Ricardo. I’ll have to check him out.

            Oh, and I’m a woman, not a Son. Perhaps the avatar threw you. Or maybe even the f-bomb. Women use it, too. Even in polite company, if it’s appropriate, to them, to express or emphasize a point.

        • tracy Smith

          Wrong,the Bible said he had feet like Copper hair like wool and eyes like a burning fire.Sound like Black man.I know you white folks hate that but you’ll get over and if you don’t well that’s your problem.

          • Patrick Clark

            The Bible is a book of fiction so that means Jesus wasn’t real. If he were though, he was a middle eastern jew and they aren’t negroid. Besides, my step brother has “hair like wool”, he was nicknamed Borrego because we lived in a Hispanic neighborhood, and he was white. So the description of Jesus doesn’t allude that he was black. Wool is soft and curly, if it had said his hair was like steel wool then maybe they were describing a black man.

          • White people are copper with a tan, not black people. Wool is white, black people don’t have white hair. Jesus was white just like the egyption pharos, deal with it…

          • tracy Smith

            That’s the dumbest white wash crap I have ever heard.Whites with feet like copper hair like wool and eyes like a burning fire.I tell you white folks are funny you will come up with and deny everything positive about BLACKS.But hate on white folks hate on.

          • Michel Maiorana

            News flash people from the Middle East are white. Look at the bone structure.

          • NASCARDaddy

            I’ve met plenty of people from the Middle East with copper colored skin and curly black hair “like wool.” Never met anyone with “eyes like burning fire” of any race. It’s important to note that The Bible doesn’t say that he had “hair like wool” but hair that was white like wool. Revelations 1:13-17 says “And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.”

            If you really want to nitpick the description says his feet were like brass and his head is white like snow. John also says he was “in the spirit” when he say this. He is describing a heavenly being “like unto” The Savior. He never says he is describing Jesus himself. John is writing this some 30 to 40 years after Jesus’ death. He wasn’t describing the living Christ but an angelic celestial being. Even the description of of his feet being “like brass” if it were a literal description and not an allegory could be describing some sort of foot wear.

            There is no actual description of what Christ looked like anywhere in Biblical or historical records. However we can make some inferences from what the Bible does tell us. We know that his genealogy was that of a Semite. His mother’s cousin was married to a temple priest which means that she would have had to have come from a pure Hebrew bloodline proven to extend back to the Levites of Moses’ times.
            So Mary would have had to have had a similar bloodline so the only place that an African could have entered Christ’s family line on his mother’s side would be one of his maternal grandparents. Since Elohim is Christ’s father and the father of all mankind it is safe to say that his genetics transcend what we understand about race.

            We also know that when Judas betrayed Christ he needed to identify him to the temple guards. Given that both Egyptians and Ethiopians stood out enough in Judea that they were identified by nationality by the apostles it is unlikely that he had African features. If he did he would have stood out among the Semitic apostles. Likewise he was common looking enough that both Mary Magdalene and the apostles travelling to Emaus did not at first recognize him when they met him despite having spending nearly every day of the last three years together. This would not be possible if Jesus looked out of place in the region, which an African certainly would have.

            Now I’m sorry if you can’t handle the truth but that is your problem not mine. Open your heart to the Holy Spirit and you shall know the truth, and the truth is that the Savior’s race is meaningless. If your faith in him is based on his skin tone then you are guilty of idolatry and worshiping a false Christ. Once you embrace that truth that Christ’s message is what is important and not his skin color then the truth shall set you free.

          • tracy Smith

            You do know before the evil Europeans came those people you mentioned was all BLACK.

          • And they were all ruled by white people. DNA has shown the pharos were white, Science destroys your argument.

          • NASCARDaddy

            Nope, Semitic Hebrews and Arabs were not black and the “evil Europeans” had been in the region for nearly a century prior to The Savior’s birth in the form of The Roman Empire. And before that the Greeks and Macedonians had been in the region for at least two thousand years before Christ’s birth. And ancient Egyptian records describe Egyptians as a tan skinned people like modern inhabitants of North Africa until they were invaded and conquered by the Cushites from Ethiopia. The history of the region is literally not black and white. As the center of the ancient world the history of the Middle East comes in all skin tones.

          • Thomas Village

            Nailed it NASCARDaddy! You destroyed “tracy Smith’s” ridiculous argument with educated fact.

          • NASCARDaddy

            Given the lack of education and intellect you have displayed so far I would not expect you to be and yet you were sufficiently impressed enough to try and tell us all how you weren’t impressed.

          • tracy Smith

            What you taking about redneck plus I never seen or heard of an intelligent redneck.

          • NASCARDaddy

            First of all, “redneck” was a term invented by “evil Europeans” to make fun of people who worked for a living. Because they would spend all day outside working in the fields or doing construction or whatnot the backs of their necks got sunburned hence the term redneck. Pretty much everything you have, including the home you live in, you have because of a “redneck” so be careful throwing that term around. Second of all I’m talking about your obvious propensity to go directly to name calling and profanity when someone challenges you. You have no intellectual foundation to debate people on so you go straight to name calling. To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin you can’t think of anything intelligent to say so you swear. Thirdly you like to call others racists but a quick scan of your posts on Disqus show an endless parade of racist filth directed at anyone with a lighter skin color than your own. Fourthly your lack of intellect and educate is obvious to anyone who spends any time dealing with you since it’s clear that you have no idea how to do such simple things as punctuate and diagram sentences. Finally why you mad bro? It’s all just a game. The fact that you are so mad shows me that I have hit pretty close to the mark.

            Tracy, you taught me something new today! Thank you!

          • Michel Maiorana

            Hebrews of which Jews are a part, are a Semitic people as were all the peoples of the Mid-East until the Indo- Europeans invaded the Iranian area in the form of the Persians and Turkey in the form of the Celts. The wall paintings in the Pharaoh’s tombs clearly show well tanned whites in Egypt except for the Nubian Pharaohs who were black. Was Jesus as white as most modern paintings portray? No he was Middle Eastern in appearance. So what? It’s common for a people to make their Deities look like themselves. Except of course for the Egyptians with their half human half animal gods.

          • Tom Kratman

            In the hopes of triggering you, Cleopatra was a Macedonian, which is to say a sort of Greek, and Hannibal was either full Semite or – just possibly – half Semite and half Celtiberian.

          • tracy Smith

            White lies aren’t going to change historic facts but you white folks are going go down in flames trying too.

          • Tom Kratman

            You mean historic facts like Hannibal and Cleo were white, and so were the Jews?

            I used to be more contemptuous than I currently am about Afro-centric theories of history, especially as regards great civilizations and centers of learning that somehow seemed to recede further and further into the distance the more white colonization advanced. I’m still contemptuous, mind you (and also think that triggering idiots is a moral imperative) but somewhat less so since reading Seamus MacManus’ Story of the Irish Race, which was just as idiotic.

          That’s it! The three only discernible races.

          cheers

      • Scholze Kat

        i agree is she on facebook her profile page shows her in a swimming suit? omg

      • Nanci

        Uh… I hate to tell you, but Canadians ARE Americans…as are Mexicans, Chileans, Brazilians, and everyone else who inhabits the North American and South American continents. Just sayin’.

        • disqus_igPBRUBbUb

          Okay, my bad. I should have specified U.S. citizens. Geez, you gotta be on your toes when posting online 😉

        • indiana homez

          don’t be ridiculous; everyone knows that “American” is used to describe an American Citizen.

          The point was clear to ingenuous folks. Your nit picking is just that… it is not common in English for Canadians, or the others you mentioned to call themselves “Americans”.

          It is analogous to when people say “there is nothing “liberal” about liberals”. It is a simply a way to make dunderheads feel smart by nitpicking(because they probably don’t have anything productive to contribute to the conversation).

      I love your comment!

  • gregory alan elliott

    Row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily, life is but a dream. This English Professor is insane. Now white men cannot float upon the water? Freaking insanity. CANADIAN UNIVERSITIES ARE DUMBING DOWN CANADA! I can only guess it is a Canada-wide conspiracy to make Prime Minister Justin Trudeau look smarter in comparison. Dumber Canadians get, the smarter Justin looks. Geez, that Justin Trudeau is one stupid feminist.

    • Nancy Nunez Suffield

      Hahahaha! The song! Lol!

  • James hegarty

    Why are there so many nutty professors?

    • Steven-X

      They can’t find real jobs.

    • Melanie Blinstrub

      They think more highly of themselves than they ought. At least this one anyways. [So hard wired to themselves as gods, the circular logic seizes :/] Not all are like that .. but man there is a lot

    • Adolf Skroatler

      Professors generally can not function in the real world. Therefore they have to work at place that is very similar to a government job. They start to feel empowered because they can ruin a student’s career on a whim. They also feel smarter than everyone else because they are surrounded by people that do not know what they know (students). They get a false sense of intelligence, where in fact they are mediocre at best. If you will notice, 90% of them are very Liberal. Not saying that Liberals have a substandard intelligence level, just pointing out an observation.

      • James hegarty

        Sounds logical. Well put. They just seem kookier now than when I attended.

      • Captain Jack Gunder

  • Lon Pirkl

    Dr. Misao Dean has a bit of a mental problem. She needs to stick to english and leave history alone.

    • Theresa

      Most Liberals have a mental problem. It’s a brain disease actually that makes someone think the death penalty for convicted murderers is bad….shredding of an unborn innocent baby is good.

      Capitalism, being a 1%’er, working hard to better yourself and your family … bad. Electing a lifelong member of that same 1% club as Prime Minister of your country…. good.

      Islamic degradation, oppression and honour killings of women … defendable and acceptable. Expecting women to pay for their own tampons … reprehensible.

      Imposing carbon taxes that will only hurt the most vulnerable in our society and throw millions of people into poverty … good. Gore, Suzuki, Di Caprio, et al flying around the world preaching to the sullied masses that they don’t deserve to have heat or lights….good.

      A career politician who lies under oath before Congress and the FBI and deliberately destroys subpoenaed evidence…. what crime?? Where?? An 11 year old audio tape of two guys engaging in locker room banter….shocking and appalling.

      This insidious brain disease can’t be explained away, but hopefully someday there’ll be a cure.

      • Vladimir Putin

        Too true!

  • Thomas M Ingram

    She is a total dip shit and makes me ashamed to say my paternal grandparents came from Canada , the word canoe comes from the Carib kenu (dugout) and Arawak canaoua, 2 indigenous people from the Caribbean and translated to canoe by the Spaniards in the 15th century.

  • Rodney Elkins

    Hey prof.,why don’t you murder yourself?

    We could laugh this off if she was a little old lady living alone with her cats. But she’s not. She has influence over people. [Her students mostly] She is – therefore – a THREAT to all of us.

    Why is it that University Professors, both men and women, who we think are academically proficient come up with the stupidest analogy on any and many topics. This canoe thing by Milo dean is beyond ludicrous. She should have her teaching licence taken away and she be placed in a home for the mentally challenged for the country’s safety. I guess we ban the canoe to remove that terrible image it represents! I hope that our students look beyond this stupid analogy.

  • John Swenson

    Racists perpetuate racism. When one realizes we’re all human and move forward instead of always looking back, color will just be an adjunctive and race will just be used as a verb. The noun usage will be removed from the dictionary and we can move forward.

  • Proof positive college does not impart common sense!

  • Marc Pleau

    well its not a big stretch, when you think about it. This country was only navigable by canoe for thousands of years….the Canoe is a Indigenous creation, had the French and Huron not become Allies, they wouldnt have been able to learn the ways of the canoe, able to snake thru the land from Mont Royal to the French river, into the Laurentian Uphills…..to trap pelts….The Coureur de Bois, wouldve had to do a Lot more running..
    Canada might not even exist, had it not been for the early friendships between the French and Indigenous. Canada was initially only settled, to acquire furs to send back to Europe, for Fashion Statements of upper crust snooty men. Honestly our countries founding is rather bad.
    and yes, today, most of the people you see on canoe….are white males of upper class birth, some even jesting that they can canoe to work in the morning, cause there are so many lakes between their lakeside home and the office downtown.
    That all reeks of Colonialism, Imperialism, and White Privilege.

  • William Matt Fleming

    -Sigh I’m part Algonquin Indian (11 generations back), for Indians of various tribes this was their core form of vast transportation, Canada was formed around the birch bark canoe which easily included more natives then white men, the Indians taught them how to make them ffs!!…people like this should be stripped of their credentials for their sheer stupidity…

  • Anonymous1

    I’m so glad she brought this up because phones are in the same boat so to speak. “Certainly the majority of phone users are people who have a very privileged place in society,” “They’re frequently highly educated people. They’re almost completely white.”

  • FourFooted Messiah

    Uh, weren’t canoes invented by the First Nations peoples? I thought we got the idea/design from them.

    Oh, and, well, it’s time to ban the fur trade then, it’s racist, it’s really white people profiting off of it. Can we ban it now? Sport hunting too? Most thrillkillkultists are white, can we finally get rid of slaughtering independent nations of other species for fun?

    Oh, overpopulation? We have to make sure they don’t overpopulate? Or they might starve? Well, get your guns to the third world, then, and take care of all those kids they wave in front of the television, please! Take care of your own, first right? Humans first?

    What bothers me is not so much she has mental or emotional issues, is that she is gainfully employed.

The losers are the poor kids in their formative years looking up to a role model professor and hear this garbage spew.

    Just another lefty trying to get their 15 minutes of fame. If she actually did her research she’d see that canoes have been used by many people of many cultures for many years. Maybe in her privileged little world canoers were always white but that is not the big picture. Interesting to note that she is lumping her boss in with these “privileged white men who canoe”.
