Is it racism in general or specifically towards Blacks? .
Unless you consider yourself to be black it was racism against you. Despite your desperate attempts to be "white" you aren't and so would have been unable to migrate to Canada prior to 1962.
And white Canadians have tons of complaints about wealthy Chinese disrupting their lives and aren't necessarily that friendly to South Asians either. It was only the other day that they stopped "Paki bashing" and willingly resume every time there is a terror attack.
