Can you not differentiate the difference between "Makeup" and "Blackface"?


It all comes down to white people not liking that they can't do something.

Yawn.

Wake me when the world finally learns that identifying as a color is just as inane and deleterious as hating someone because of a color.

What if an actor dresses as a woman? Is Mrs. Doubtfire sexist?

I agree with you on that. It does not automatically mean one is a racist. Yet it is like walking into a Jewish church and saying "heil hitler". Or something like that.

It's disrespectful to the countless years black people were mocked by white people wearing black paint.

I"m waiting for some to come out and skewer Robert Downy Jr for his portrayal of a white guy coloring his skin and acting like a black guy in Tropic Thunder. Man was that a great role or what?


Except that was done with a self-aware attitude and was actually funny. I don't think Jimmy should be fired or anything. I just think the " I'm a dumb basketball player who is black" was a bad idea.


But let it be somebody from the right, they would lose their job and their entire families will be doxed, publicly shamed and receive death threats.

But because it was Robert and funny, here is a Golden Globe nomination.

This. I was just thinking about that the other day. How did he get away with that, yet everyone else is getting skewered?

Well, that's because most of the PC police are lefties and will go much harder on the right. And again... my point was that it tropic thunder poked fun at black face.

Racist is an overused word.

More times or not people should use....

Discrimination - to treat someone differently for gender, race, ethnicity, creed ect.

Offensive--doing something that would offend any of the above.

Or stereotyping- assuming or projecting based off of perceived tendencies.

I’m the same way, ie I try to treat people equally and respectfully. However, I expect the same. I don’t put up with bull.

The problem is that now days a lot of sjws think that they can talk at me or down to me, because I’m blonde, white, and male. When I don’t put up with it, it’s shocking to them as if I’m the one being a bad person.

Good point, but bringing logic and reason into the discussion is probably racist.



Most certainly true.

I seem to remember a couple of black dudes playing a couple of white chicks.

So white man made money of black slaves. Now that Snoop Dog made his money off whites and blacks who buy his music; he's given a pass because "its all in jest"

No sense of entitlement being abused here....no....no...

hypocrisy?

You're not getting it, are you?

If you think I'm defending "blackface" there really is no discussion to be had.
