Will White Folks Ever Understand That Appearing In Blackface Is Not Only Racist But Makes The Wearer Look Damn Stupid?

Can't even believe this dude had the nerve to pose next to the great Bob Marley looking like a radioactive black jelly bean and the idiot above doesn't look black, but burned. I will never understand why making fun of black folks is a source of entertainment on a campus that has so few black folks on campus in the first damn place.

I've always thought this, too-- Why aren't these people more embarrassed? "They are an embarrassment to their race." lol

The odd thing is, this isn't even a costume. They are clueless, privileged fools 365 days a year.

It's a question we also need to ask the Shirley Q Liquor fans in the gay community as well

They do it for attention. And out of ignorance.

A radioactive jellybean-that's priceless! I thought the French Vouge model looked like a piece of pencil lead.

I'm sure that they feel we should be understanding of their interest in blacking their bodies. I'm sure that if they explained it to me, it would only confirm that you cannot fix stupid.

There's nothing wrong with it.

@Todd,

Only white folks like you want to say there is nothing wrong with it. You're not the one being insulted. You never are. And on the few occasions when the shoe has been on the other foot, you folks never seem to have the same flexible sense of humor or understanding.

I'm looking forward to when minorities start dressing up like Rednecks, Jeffrey Dahmer, Timothy McVeigh, Lee Harvey Oswald, and whatever other highly offensive white assholes we can come up with, I want to hear you say that's there is nothing wrong with it then.

But the difference is simply this, we don't feel the need to do dumb ass racist and sexist shit like this. When we are together and white folks are not around, you're not even on our minds, not even a subject of conversation.

That's the funny part, even when black people are not around, white folks always have us on their minds. You don't have much of a life without us. LOL!

Hhahahaha!! Isn't that so true??! I call it "the dark obsession". They claim to hate us..but I think it is a case of "the lady doth protest too much" because it's bordering on a psychosis. The fear of recessive genetic annihilation strikes again. Gotta keep on top, or you'll be swallowed by all those dirty brown masses that make up 85-87% of the Earth HUE-man population. :)

Look at what happens when someone shows up with a swastika symbol somewhere, or dressed like Hitler - all hell breaks loose.
But then a week later, they forget how offended/traumatized they were and now they're in black face.

I believe that they are not embarrassed because they are very well aware that it is racist and if you are ignorant enough to be blatantly and publicly racist then of course you are ignorant enough to walk around adorning blackface.

I'd like to draw a counterpoint to this argument. Black Comedians are constantly mocking white people, and we do very often - although not manifested in the same social context - have a culture of people who live their lives by "passing" seemingly in an internally acknowledged "white-face."
The historical legacy of Black-face in America has always been posited in an "absence of presence." By that, I mean that because white entertainers lacked the charisma, showmanship, grace and talent of their Negro counterparts, the only way they could compete for jobs and attention was to use burnt cork, and shoe polish to mask what they did not have - talent.
So, NO, Black face is not an indictment of the Negro in America, it is a sinister reminder to White America of how far they will go to mask their shame, envy and resent for not being as talented, beautiful and resilient as those they have sought to oppress and exploit.

As cross-reference to this discussion , I would like to invite you to check my article on just this very thing:

I mean, I prefer to see white people in Black face - at least they are being honest about how they feel…

There are an estimated 1.5 million Black men in prison and another 3.5 million on probation. Black males make up more than 70 percent of the total prison population, even though they make up only 6 percent of the U.S. population.

Although blacks are 12% of the population in reality it is just 2% of the blacks that commit 50% of the murders and a greater percentage of other crimes. Consider: black females - 6%. Blacks from zero yrs. to 12 yrs. and black males from 50-100 years commit an infinitesimal percentage of the crimes. Therefore we are left with two percent. If we eliminate crimes committed by this two percent from the U.S. statistics our country compares very favorably with all Western countries. Fact -- blacks kill 7 times more than whites kill. Fact -- blacks kill whites 20 times more than whites kill blacks. Fact -- blacks mug or commit group crime against whites 50 times more than whites commit against blacks. Fact -- blacks rape white women 2000 (yes 2000) times more than whites rape black women. In New York City, about 300 white women are raped by blacks every year BUT there has not been a black woman raped by a white male in anybody¢s memory (going back over 20 yrs.) Consider: Al Sharpton had to go upstate New York to find a hoax and that was almost 20 years ago. (Source NYT 4/22/05)

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2004 report (released May 2006), blacks commit 54 percent of the homicides in America even though they constitute only 12 percent of the population.

An individual black male is seven times more likely to commit murder than an individual white male. It so happens that black felons commit 43 percent of aggravated assaults, 66 percent of armed robberies, 27 percent of rapes and 85 percent of interracial crimes of violence, mainly against whites (this last figure from a Justice Department report 2003). However, it's not just in the United States. The greatest dicators in recent years have emerged in Africa. People like Idi Amin of Uganda, Hastings Kamuzu Banda in Malawi, Mobutu Sese Seko, in Zaire, self-anointed Emperor Bokassa of the Central African Republic, Mohammed Saidi Barre in Somalia, Sani Abacha of Nigeria, Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe -- the list is endless

@JOVENT -

1) FUCK YOU!

2) You clearly love black people since you worked that be an asshole on a black woman's site.

3) FUCK YOU!

Ras Benzo November 18, 2009 at 5:10 PM  

I think we are losing sight of the original discussion here with the injection of these misrepresented irrelevant "facts."

Jovent - while pointless in his presentation - highlights what is essential to the mismanagement of the African in America. If White America had an issue with Black crime, then they would do something other than exploit it for financial gain, ie: The major distributors of Urban music - with its messages of vice, misogyny, and abuse are headed by White people. The private contractors that make their money off of the Prison Industrial Complex and the disproportionately racist legislation that incarcerates minorities are White. So on and so on…

But back to the original point:
Jovent is tapdancing for attention like Al Jolson in "The Jazz Singer" because nobody cares about the boring, talent-free lives of the displaced White American male.

Jovent,

What the hell does your tired ass diatribe have to do with the price of tea in China? Classic example of what we in debating circles like to call, "Derailment".
