I’m sure you may have heard of twitter user Nora Loreto, the woman who managed to say white people are the reason the Humboldt Broncos received so many donations.
I'm trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role.

The GoFundMe campaign has now raised $11.4M for the families of the victims that died over a week ago.
Did Loreto forget that Canadians donated $20M to Haiti during their crisis?
Situations like this should never be used to promote racism, shame on those who do. Racism should never be used in any situation.
Loreto received a crazy amount of backlash on social media for the comments, and as Spencer Fernando reports, CBC panelists managed to say Loreto is the victim.
Is it time to Boycott CBC and slash their funds?
