‘There is no person from a non-white minority or a minority group here’
Apr 20, 2017
Mohamed Rahall braced his hands against a table at Edmonton’s city hall and then leaned forward, looking at the faces around him. Then he laughed.
“I see here everyone is white,” the 21-year-old said to the assembled members of the city’s police commission.
“There is no person from a non-white minority or a minority group here,” he continued, without a smile. “And it’s important because they are the ones who understand and can actualize what minority groups are going through.”
Rahall is a member of the Youth Action Project (YAP), which formed in Edmonton three years ago. The group advocates for human rights in the community.
