I personally think many people might not know the context of blackface and mean no harm.
I wouldn’t advise it but I wouldn’t ruin a person for doing it but wearing a Klan robe is something else.

My costume isn’t a Klan robe. Klansmen were not black (but they were democrats).

Either black and white face is bad, or its not.

Given how far removed we are now from why black face was used to begin with in the entertainment industry, I believe the context is what needs to be considered.

An actor playing a Daniel Day-Lewis type actor in blackface, is comedy gold.

Is everyone that worked on Tropic Thunder a racist because they enabled the skit? Am I a racist for paying to see the movie and laughing? Other than who I vote for, whats the difference here between someone that votes democratic and laughs/enjoys this movie or me?

As an Australian, I didn’t find Robert Downey Junior’s depiction of an Australian offensive at all.

We cannot be offended. Everyone know's we Aussies are racist by default so we deserve whatever we get.

/sarcasm

Downey was the only thing worth watching in that piece of crap movie.

Not sure how Ben Stiller and a few others like Adam Sandler, these so called 'comedic' actors still get work.
Well I do, but both reasons are not PC enough for the modern human.

End of the day it all comes down to humans as usual.

If I like this then you must like this too.
If I hate this, then you must hate it too.
If it is or isn't harming people is moot.

Black, White, Jewish, Christian, Atheist, Gay, Straight. Whatever.

Fact is a lot of humans are greedy, selfish 2 faced pieces of hypocritical manure.
And that is what it really comes down to at the end of the day. The race card is just a means to an end for such folks.

How do we know some KKK were not Black? Black-on-Black murders are rampant.

Can anyone imagine a crowd of today's snowflakes sitting in an audience listening to Don Rickles and Richard Pryor? I caught a Joe Rogan podcast the other day where he was talking with a couple of other stand-up comedians about this very subject.

I say lock 'em in a room with Jackie Gleason and Redd Foxx videos until they get over themselves.

Why the hell is no one broken up as much as I am that someone would call the greatest war movie of our generation "stupid"?
That's the real outrage here!

Sgt. Lincoln Osiris is an inspiration to legions of US soldiers ages 25-36.

Only those who don't recognize how germane Osiris is to the topic.

That's right, gramps.

We all need to get triggered over something, right? I don't want to be left out.

The problem is not the act itself. Its the hypocrisy from the left...


Me and my offensive sense of humor ignore them as well. If I said half the things here that I say in real life I'd be banned in 5 seconds.

For the record, everything Sarah Silverman does is offensive.

Careful, there is an NSFW movie with a similar title.

Face or skin tone means nothing if you can't use it as a weapon...

Racism is only okay if a popular "comedian" does it. If it was a regular pleb we would be hanged in the streets.

How about that movie with Robert Downey Jr. in black face (and body) for an entire film. What was that, Tropical Thunder or some such

Stupid movie


One of the greatest things Hollywood has pumped out in the past decade, Tropic Thunder. Seriously, bring back blackface as a mainstream medium if they can generate that hilarious of a role while doing it.


To the OP, who cares? Seriously, it's blackface, people need to GTF over themselves and realize that personal opinions aren't a prerequisite for wide spread changes. It isn't offensive unless someone makes the conscious choice to be offended, a fact which can be rightly said about 99% of everything SJW love to whine about.
