White comedian Zach Poitras was banned from participating in comedy events in Montreal, Canada, after organisers claimed his dreadlock hairstyle was inappropriate.
rejected by the organisers, who wrote on Facebook that his dreadlock hairstyle violated their discrimination rules
“We will not tolerate any discrimination or harassment within our spaces,”
the comedian may not be racist himself but that his hairstyle acts as a “vehicle” for racism.
History professor Greg Robinson, who teaches on the subject of black immigration into Canada, compared the situation to that of “blackface”, saying: “It is white people who disguise themselves as blacks to make fun of them”
Poitras, who was also denied a spot at the Snowflake Comedy Club and another evening of “engaged humour,” declined comment on the situation.
