    While I agree that dressing in a blackface, w/ someone in a KKK hood (democrats, then and now), is wrong.

    But dressing up, idolizing a rapper is also wrong? How's that work, when both are so different?

    Or when Ted Danza did blackface while he was dating Whoopie, (yes, it happened, look it up), and that was OK?

    AND, I want to go on record here, that when I lived in TX. I was always outside when I could be, cycling, running, sailing, swimming, windsurfing, etc.
    So I always had a deep dark tan- never been to a 'salon' either.
    Back before I was married- dated many women of all races (there's only one - human). I went out with several Black woman- had long relationships, etc., and when we'd match up our forearms, the upper/dorsal side anatomically- I WAS DARKER THAN THEM!

    What does any of that have to do with anything? Are you you're own black friend that keeps you from being racist?

    I can't figure it out.
    Who the hell would wear that thing?! It's ugly.
    Who would pay that much money for clothes?! I just sit here and think about all the food I could eat for that much.

    Sammy was probably still caught up in the tradition of blackface being required, even if you were black. Have you seen pictures of "Pigmeat" Markem? Flip Wilson? Bessie Smith? Louie Armstrong? How about the 2nd picture on the wiki page? A black man in blackface. Black folks have worn blackface.

    Or, in the case of Tom Hanks, simply standing next to a guy impersonating a 70's Soulster.

    If you'd read the header sentence explaining the list, it might come to you.
    Do you even read the shit you post up?
    • Images emerged Wednesday showing University of North Carolina fraternity students in racist blackface and KKK costumes
    • NC Governor Cooper was in another fraternity and did not feature on the pages

    Ha ha...NO, not this time. I got caught up in the race to be the first to post it here. I figured I'd give it a Democratic try....you know, like voting on something first, reading it second. :crackup:

    But the whole blackface, whiteface issue stems from the assumption that it is only WRONG if the race being made fun of is oppressed or not. Perceived or real.

    Blackface- wrong
    Native American- wrong

    Whiteface- OK

    Yellowface- no one cares except for a couple chinese/american groups, and no one listens to them for more than a couple days.


    See how that works?
