  • Seems the tides have been shifting. Liberals have always been the ones accusing conservatives of drawing every issue in black and white, and that it was a bad thing to do so. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out, to say the least.

  • Blackface was originally used on actual black performers- make sure you don't confuse them with regular people. The blackface is a character, a Jim Crowe, not whomever you choose to dress as or a general look of blackness. White people have Chosen to wear blackface, but there was a time (not so long ago, either) when the mask of this character was Proscribed for black performers. Blackface effectively painted over the humanity of individuals, and all you needed to know about a character was that he was The Black. He was NOT "Mr.T.," Aretha Franklin, or whomever you believe you are choosing to be (although Al Jolson is another issue)- and blackface is not an homage to anything so much as ignorance of its origins and a sort of obliviousness to the ways in which the past continue to haunt us in the present. But they don't have to do so, not to this degree, anyway. So: that is a large part of what makes Blackface offensive.

Your morality, your ethics, and your sense of dignity have gone the way of the Dodo (if you don't understand the reference, look it up). Really, do you even see yourself in the mirror anymore? You know the person you were at 12 who had dreams, hope, ideas. What would that person say about who you are now?

  • Aaaand all the sane black people in American didn't give a single rip about black face but just went on about their day and jobs. I mean are people just going around looking for things to get angry about? If we are perhaps this is time to complain about how back in the 8th century the vikings raided the English village of my ancestors and burned their huts down. Seeing vikings have long hair it thinks its incredibly insensitive that heavy metal singers have long hair. They should apologize for all the vikings that burned down so many huts. The moral - if you complain about black face its as stupid as the story I just told.

  • Here’s a genuine question. What if you wear a Black Panther costume, but you DON’T paint your face black? Is that still wrong? Disney sells Black Panther Costumes to kids. And while the advertisements include black child models, nothing is stopping a white kid from buying it. Blackface, historically, was done in a very specific way, but is wearing clothing associated with black characters also racist even without the literal blackface?

Modern ethnicities didn't spread African depigmentation genes until 5-8k years ago 😂 "When it comes to skin color, the team found a patchwork of evolution in different places, and three separate genes that produce light skin, telling a complex story for how European’s skin evolved to be much lighter during the past 8000 years. The modern humans who came out of Africa to originally settle Europe about 40,000 years are presumed to have had dark skin, which is advantageous in sunny latitudes. And the new data confirm that about 8500 years ago, early hunter-gatherers in Spain, Luxembourg, and Hungary also had darker skin: They lacked versions of two genes-SLC24A5 and SLC45A2-that lead to depigmentation and, therefore, pale skin in Europeans today." www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/04/how-europeans-evolved-white-skin "You and I, in fact everyone all over the world, we’re literally African under the skin; brothers and sisters separated by a mere two thousand generations.

"Explain that genetic evidence shows all humans are 99.9% identical and do not fall neatly into physical categories some people call races.

    Joe FranklinJoe FranklinPřed 8 dny
    • +Joe Franklin but here's the issue, if you thought dressing up in blackface and sending me a picture was entertaining, you'd send it because you wanted me reaction to be one of humor. The minute I say its not funny its offensive, how do you then justify you finding it entertaining when that's not the effect it had on the intended audience. If I step on your toes and apologize, you'd probably be more willing to let it go than if I told you to just get over it while still continuing to do it. Usually something that helps people get over an issue is acknowledgment and changed behavior by the offending party.... that doesn't happen in these cases. Instead we get gaslit and people get mad at us for getting mad.

      crazii_creole 3crazii_creole 3Před dnem
    • +crazii_creole 3 You might misunderstand me. I'm trying to understand where you're coming from. I don't discard your feelings because I'm not offended by this. We can argue the merit of others actions till the cows come home and resolve nothing. The only reason things like this matter to anyone is because people allow it to insult or offend them. I could put on black face paint right now and send you a picture. It won't mean that I hate you or think less of you or any other black person. The only reason it would be funny is how ridiculous I would look.

      Joe FranklinJoe FranklinPřed dnem
    • +Joe Franklin you just proved my point. I would be more easily able to get over these things IF they didn't continue to come up. Even if you don't think that the more recent blackface is as bad as the early turn of the century blackface, they still stem from the same place. Yes, people do dress up offensively and it does get media coverage in a lot of cases (mascots changed, protests, etc) it is offensive in any case because the whole idea stems from a racist practice and is more often than not culturally insensitive. I have people of other races that I admire...I don't need to paint my face to imitate them and it would be ignorant for me to think that if I did the onus is on the people who are offended vs the actual offenders. This whole get over it mentality is infuriating. Its not even a one off...Gucci just did it, Katy Perry just did it, H&M did it with the whole monkey controversy... just because it doesn't relate to you, doesn't mean you can dismiss other people for feeling the way they do.

      crazii_creole 3crazii_creole 3Před 2 dny
    • +crazii_creole 3 I see your point about old school black face from the early 1900's. That's not the same as a white guy dressing up as a black person without over exaggerated features and without stereotypical behavior. People do dress up like Nazis, and stereotypical Native Americans, Jews, Indians and Asians all the time. I notice two things when that happens. 1. There's very little, if any media coverage. 2. Those groups don't get so bent out of shape about it. You say it's a bad thing when people say, "You're overreacting. Don't worry about it." Dismissal of such behavior does nothing to prevent it from happening again, and that is true. Maybe you should figure out why some bad costume a guy wore in the 80s bothers you so much in the first place. Free people in a free country sometimes do stupid things with those freedoms. Maybe those things offend or upset you, but you have to get over it and go on living your life.

      Joe FranklinJoe FranklinPřed 2 dny
    • +Joe Franklin but that's the thing, the whole purpose of blackface WAS malice and to make fun of caricatures of black people's physical features and their perceived behavior and speech. This was born out of racism and bigotry, even if the more current version is seen as more watered down, it still has roots in that racism. It wouldn't be acceptable for other races to have holocaust or nazi parties where they dressed like exaggerated versions of Jewish people. It wouldn't be OK to have "oriental" parties where people painted their faces yellow, pulled their eyes back and spoke in that stereotypical "Ching chang" mocking style. And even if it were done and people's excuse was that they admired the person they emulated, its in bad taste because it still plays on stereotypes. And the worse thing is, when this happens, people are told that it's no big deal, that they're too sensitive, etc as opposed to recognizing the underlying issue.
