The Royal House of Saud is lodging a formal complaint with the United Nations and the World Court.

I agree

And again, I do t want him punished over this

But nothing will change until the woke leftists who promote cancel culture get a taste of their own medicine


He deserves any everything he gets.

Despite this statement of confidence in his own actions, Trudeau said he is subject to the same zero-tolerance policy he applies to everyone else.

“The standard applies to everyone,” he said. “There is no context in which someone doesn’t have responsibility for things they’ve done in the past

This creepy picture should not get a pass especially from such a sanctimonious a$$

I think we can ALL now agree that ANY white politician (Left or Right) caught wearing blackface...is forever disqualified from judging anyone else as racist.

Actually no I disagree

First, there are many forms of blackface

Everything from racist al Jolson stuff, to a kid painting to be his favorite athletes for Halloween

It’s stupid to do it because the outrage mob will get you, but if you paint yourself brown or black for a theme party and not to spread hate against black people, it’s no big deal to me

Just like painting up like an Indian isn’t a big deal

If you do it and it’s a offensive joke?

Guess what, I still don’t care.

So I don’t believe that someone who engaged in an offensive joke can’t call our real racism like from a black panther or kkk member.



Now the woke practice of calling everything racist; yeah they should shut their mouth lest they be hypocrites

Like I said. . . . .

Rules for thee, not for mee!


Live by the woke, die by the woke.

Resign, racist.

I understand your thinking...but isn't personally making a caricature of another race an offensive act?
Wouldn't his 'costume' have been just as functional for the occaision without blackface?
edit on 18-9-2019 by IAMTAT because: (no reason given)

Nope.

Cultural appropriation.

Hope the evil racist burns in hell.

Offensive to who?

Not me

Sure some could find it offensive

I just don’t care

I don’t care about offensive jokes either

If someone is a racist and smears people based in their race; that angers me

If someone tells “offensive” jokes or wears “offensive” costumes, I just don’t care

I’m tired of pretending jokes or shady costumes people made or wore 20 plus years ago should be punished today



And I dislike Trudeau


But! It’s out of my hands

He endorsed cancel culture, so if the mob comes for him, he has only himself to blame

I wonder, was this around the time the Disney movie "Aladdin" was out?

I ask because, being it's a black and white photo, he could be in "Blue Face" and it only appears black in the photo.

Quite a few politicians have darkened their faces and put on American Indian Garb in the past.

Good question.
Does that mean Robin Williams was a racist too?

I'm so outraged, I might knock down a statue.

Interesting and good question, I could only find B&W pic. The movie was 1992, so 9-10 years previous.

Nope he’s admitted it


I shouldn’t have done that,” he said. “I should have known better but I didn’t and I’m really sorry.”


...


Trudeau said he now recognizes that wearing brownface was racist, though he didn’t think so at the time. He said he was taking responsibility and vowed to continue campaigning.



globalnews.ca...


And as a previous user posted

Trudeau has said before he should be held to the same standards he has held others (this quote is about sexual behavior but no reason it wouldn’t apply to racist behavior)


The standard applies to everyone,” he said. “There is no context in which someone doesn’t have responsibility for things they’ve done in the past.

Is it just as wrong if I put on blackface but then camouflage it with whiteface?

I wonder if we can link this to Justice Kavanaugh.

Maybe Kavanaugh's penis painted Treudeau's face during that party at Yale.

Someone, ANYONE!

CALL CNN!
