I have a question that nobody on the planet has asked as far as I can tell:
AS LONG AS PEOPLE AREN’T ACTING IN THE HORRID GENERALIZATIONS OF BLACK AMERICANS (ROBBING, RAPING, BEING LAZY…YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE) WHAT THE HECK’S WRONG WITH BLACKFACE FOR A ROAST OF A BLACK WOMAN OR A HALLOWEEN COSTUME OF MICHAEL JACKSON?
Am I SO non racist that I just don’t get why dressing as a Black American is HORRID because I see them as “just another American” or am I too naive to understand? I told a Black kid at the high school about the white teacher who darkened her skin and donned an African costume to do a soliloquy of a native African woman in her village, to draw the students in….and she was fired, did he think she was so wrong? Yes, he did. I was surprised. Does he think it’s wrong because the media and the Left tells him he has to or does it hurt somehow to have ‘his people’ mimicked? What would I care if somebody donned Armenian clothing from an Armenian village in Turkey? Of course, they’d not blacken their skin (and here is the rub) but that’s only because Armenians are not Black. If they were, what would I care? Would I care if a Black teacher made her skin lighter to appear as an Armenian village woman? NO!!!
I AM NOT BLACK….I DO NOT PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND, BUT I JUST DON’T GET IT!
DO YOU? I hope I’m not being insensitive but, from the reactions we get across our country to the Virginia situation, maybe I am?
On Facebook, in response to the 2 blackface incidents and one sexual attack by the bigwigs in Virginia government, there was a picture of a janitor sweeping the floor and the caption said something like “If the succession of Virginians keeps getting attacked for inappropriate behavior, this janitor might be the in line for governor!” 🙂
THOUGHTS?? You can tell me if you find me inappropriate or insensitive; I just don’t get the big woop. (and yes, having a K-K-K guy there in the picture with the governor was WRONG WRONG WRONG…THAT, I TOTALLY get…but I’m not talking about that here~)
