As I/we’ve all been reminding each other since this awful incident, a “fixer” is and long has been the commonplace, decidedly NON-racist term for a local hired to serve as info-sherpa to foreign journalists.
Yes, those hired as fixers tend to be non-white because — duh — they live in mostly non-white countries.
Where the reporters are reporting from? Duh?
Accusations of “racism” can be fatal for journalists (see, “Derbyshire, John”).
Accusing some of the least racist individuals in Canada — people Tarek knows well and has worked with for years — of “racism” is bizarre.
