I'm wondering if there is a picture of Fauxahontas in blackface? It seemed to be quite the rage for dems a while back.

Don't worry... Whoopi will be along shortly to tell us all why it's ok for her friends to do it... it's only when our friends do it, that it becomes racist.

It's a MASSIVE waste of time and the definition of fake outrage. So tired of it.

I'm sure CD will be along to tells us why it's not out of control and the outrage is even justified. When black people wear white face, it's all in fun and no ill intentions are meant or implied. When white people do it, it is meant to demean him and his fellow AAs... like he says, its all about intentions. Black good, white bad.

Saving myself some typing...

In strict terms, whiteface and blackface are very much the same thing. It’s a theatrical device meant to portray racial stereotypes, usually for a comedic purpose.

However, as with most things, context trumps content. Blackface was not only used for comedic effect, but was also used originally to deny black people opportunities to work in the entertainment industry. Partially because many aspiring black actors refused to cater to the tastes of white audiences of the time, but also because blackface was meant to cement black stereotypes as “the way black people are”, often in the most deleterious and nefarious ways.

My point is that blackface has a rather long and dark (no pun intended) history, whereas whiteface does not. Bear in mind that whiteface nor blackface would have ever been used in entertainment and media were it not green-lighted by a still overwhelmingly white and male dominated entertainment industry.

All of that said, people need to learn to just accept that our aesthetic and cultural differences are what make us great and it’s okay to make fun of ourselves as long as the intent is not malicious.

Did Al ever apologize?

How about Ted? Whoopi defended him at the time.

While I think getting punished for some shtick 20 year ago is appalling, let them eat their own with this. The PC culture has got to go.

Well stated.
But context is out the window in today's PC world. The PC police have power now and they will continually push the limits of that power, it has already gone to bad places and will only get worse.

That is one reason people like Trump, he is brave enough to push back at that power and suffer the slings & arrows that inevitably result from that push.

this whole thing is freak'n stupid. Micheal Jackson was the biggest white face sucker ever. Who cares. The only reason this is coming up is because it's a distraction from democrats real goals of killing elementary school children next. Democrats make ***** look like saints. Democrats = evil baby murdering pedophiles.
