White people and “white racism” are the reasons why nonwhites in the Canadian city of Toronto are poorer, and as a result the metropolis is becoming increasingly racially segregated, the Toronto Star has reported.
In an article titled “Toronto is segregated by race and income. And the numbers are ugly,” written by Sandro Contenta, the newspaper naturally tries to blame whites for the situation, saying that the “colour of money is mainly white”—as if this has anything to do with the fact.
According to “new demographic charts” from University of Toronto Professor David Hulchanski and his research team, Toronto is a “strikingly segregated city, with visible minorities concentrated in low-income neighbourhoods and white residents dominating affluent areas in numbers far higher than their share of the population.”
“It’s starker than we would expect,” Hulchanski said, when he unveiled the charts last week in the Netherlands at a conference called “Urban poverty and segregation in a globalized world.”
Using the 2016 census, his team calculated that 48 per cent of Toronto’s census tracts are “low-income” neighbourhoods, where the average individual income is $32,000 before taxes.
Of those areas, “fully 68 per cent of residents in these neighbourhoods are visible minorities while 31 per cent are white. (Whites make up 49 per cent of Toronto’s population.)”
“The main ethno-cultural communities in these low-income neighbourhoods are all overrepresented compared to their share of the city’s population,” the article continues
“Black residents, for example, are 9 per cent of the population but make up 13 per cent of residents of low-income neighbourhoods.
“High-income neighbourhoods are almost a reverse image. They make up 23 per cent of Toronto’s census tracts, with average individual incomes of $102,000 before tax.
“Fully 73 per cent of residents in these neighbourhoods are white, far higher than their share of the city’s population. The rest are visible minorities, of whom only 3 per cent are Black.”
Whites are also overrepresented in middle-income neighbourhoods, where the average income is $49,000.
“Money buys choice. And people with the most choice are choosing to live in certain areas,” Hulchanski says, explaining the disproportionately high concentration of white residents in high- and middle-income communities.
Rather than just admit that whites have fled the nonwhite areas, and that nonwhites do not achieve as well as in whites in social, economic, and educational fields, the article then goes on to blame “white racism” and, of course, “discrimination” for the segregation.
The usual “blame whitey” excuses are trotted out (such as “discriminatory barriers to good jobs and housing,”—as if there is a white conspiracy to deny nonwhites jobs or houses) and even blames white racism for the fact that even though the nonwhites have a relatively high “educational level,” they still are in “low-income neighbourhoods.” Of course, race and IQ are the real reasons for the differences in achievement, but rather than admit this truth, it is easier just to blame whites.
The report goes on to say that “another worrying sign for Hulchanski is that 57 per cent of residents in Toronto’s low-income neighbourhoods are immigrants, including established ones who arrived before 2006. Only 31 per cent of residents in high-income areas are immigrants, including 23 per cent who arrived prior to 2006.”
This fact is left without comment, and the reason is clear: it destroys the leftist argument that “Third World immigration will boost the economy” and other such lies.
