Even if it is technically racist, which I believe it is, technically since I too feel this was intentional, does it matter?
At the very worst what they're doing is kind of rude and only makes them look stupid, anyone feeding that has joined the stupidity.
Maybe they had innocent intentions though, and just maybe they were actually exfoliating, we don't know.
Eta: I wanna delete this cause I don't like how I worded it. Basically what I am trying to say is racist or not, unless it's a freaking hate crime we should all STFU and expend our emotional energy elsewhere.
Lame people are lame people regardless of pigment. Vice versa.
No one said anything about your disposition to race..
Nah the people defending those two didindus know exactly what the score is.
They're just doing it to play devils advocate...They've lost their confederate flag
Telling me i'm wrong doesn't make you right.
You have nothing to contradict my opinion and the context you speak
of was in direct reference to this threadso valid to counter.
You do understand how context works right? (It's not just a word)
Dude you just learned to differentiate you're and your.
Are you really going to try to analyze me now? pfft
For those that the shoe fits for they'll wear it.
If you're not one them - than not directed at you.
What's wrong with the rebel yell? Just pretend i'm listening to Billy Idol just like you're
pretending they didn't know what they were doing.
Either way this merry go-round stop here....Great talking with you sport...catch on the next thread.

Biore (a skin care company) makes a CHARCOAL face mask as CHARCOAL draws out impurities (gunk from clogged pores--dermatologically known as blackheads, that term, I'm sure, is not permissible anymore.)
CHARCOAL is used, for its same ability, to purify water, to absorb toxins taken internally (charcoal tablets they are swallowed), etc.
Now if they are used a green clay mask (Queen Helene makes an amazing one) would these kollege kiddies be accused of being insensitive to Martian life forms?
PC is truly insane.
I'm just going to throw out there that getting a tan should be racist now.
Carnival games in the 19th and early 20th centuries highlighted and exploited white people's hostility toward blacks. Presenting African Americans as willing victims of white aggression made the violence seem normal and legitimate. Games like The African Dodger, also known as Hit the Nigger Baby or Hit the Coon, which used actual human targets, were commonplace in local fairs, carnivals, and circuses. Sometimes a picture or model of an African American was used instead, but the message was clear -- unprovoked violent aggression toward blacks was the social norm
