Again, as I said before, it's not a problem that people dressed up 40 odd years ago. This is fashion police.

it's not fashion police, sure 40 years ago it was sth completely different to do but still. Its not just fashion to wear KKK hoods and have confederate flags

The joke was fashionable back then.

Ok, but at what point do you move past history and live in the now? I am sure if we looked hard enough we could find something YOU did in your past and hold you accountable for it today. Do you want to live in that kind of world or would you rather be judged as the person you are today and your current actions?

'Blackface' is just another tool used by the media and Liberal Blacks to control White people. There is nothing wrong with it.

Not unless there's a problem with that movie, "White Chicks".

We white people should all paint our faces black for a day as a sign of solidarity with the victims of this hate campaign.

Magister Mortran - In today's society you would be better off shooting into a crowd than putting on blackface. Once Western culture finishes splitting into leftist and conservative support systems then such a protest could be done but currently the leftists will exclude you from everything from banking to employment. So I highly suggest that as these alternatives like Gab, SubscribeStar, and whichever other parallel platforms emerge so that we can free ourselves from the tyranny of the Technoligarchs of silicon valley.

play stupid games, win stupid prizes. There's also the fact that we're all distracted by this instead of the governor's infanticide comments. Good job changing the subject.

So, is white face bad too? Wasn’t there a couple of movies where black actors made up to look like whites?

Come on dude! It only works one way! Because white people don’t constantly feel like victims, they don’t feel the need to scream and cry about it. Honest truth.

I don't understand what's so racist about this whole thing. Will dressing up for halloween be racist or some other kind of "ist"? This is getting ridiculous.

I think it's to distract from the governor's comments supporting infanticide.

Interesting that all the sources used are pillars of the regressive left. It's almost like they are obsessed with identity politics.

They had to go digging 51 yrs back to find this latest nugget. Right or wrong, times were different back then.

this is mostly going to hurt them in the long run if they are going to judge people for stuff they did longer than 30 years ago rather than focusing on policy. What's next? no one on the left will like Bernie Sanders because theres a photo of him as a baby crying near black people?

This guy apparently just edited the racist stuff I mean I feel like that’s probably not his fault since he didn’t do it himself but it’s still fucking hilarious that every Virginian politician is insane

How did the republicans lose this past election? They had every advantage yet they lost to the blackface rapist... supposedly.
Petri Fide 6 months
Imo the Republicans lost the Virginia election because they are not obsessed with identity politics and failed to either look for this or thought that something which happen 30-years ago was irrelevant.
Paul Dixon 6 months
As a Virginian the Republicans lost because though a majority of the VA territory is red. The major city centers of NOVA, Hampton Roads, and Richmond are blue. So they outvote the rest of the state. This is why straight up democracy is stupid and every state should have an electoral college system of their own.

Where did you draw the line? Should blacks stop wearing clothes? I have no issue with white face and therefore have no issue with black face. Sometimes it's ok to dress up...

Just wait till we get to the 7th top official. "Well, back in 1964, his cousin's friend's roomate's husband worked at a place where his boss's brother in law allegedly wore blackface once. So he's out. NEXT!"

Blackface is a legitimate act of racism for those of you who seem a bit confused. I know we live in a time where everything is racist, even hats, so the term racist has lost its meaning, but blackface was a means of portraying people of color very derogatory way. it was not just typical stereotyping, it was more malevolent than that. For the people who lived through it, it was and still is extremely insulting.

Uhm what is with Robert Downey Jr. (correct me if i misspelled his name)?

It wasnt racist when Jimmy Kimmel did it for his Carl Malone skit as well. The thing is, times change, but now everyone wants, keyword wants, to be offended and wants to be the victim and so they dredge up shit from a century ago to pretend is the same as today. Paddy used to be a derogatory slur against the Irish. Paddy wagon has a deeper meaning than just being a police van. Yet, I fail to see Americans of Irish defense wrapping themselves in their ancestors oppression and wearing it like it's a fucking badge.

if i recall the Jimmy kimmel bit wasnt exactly blackface, but i don't watch his trash so i cant be sure. He is openly democrat so it probably was true blackface. In terms of white on white racism its true it existed amongst all white races. over time whites overcame white on white racism. i feel this is largely due to the fact society stoped talking about it. That would be the next stage in interracial relationships if identity politics didn't rear its ugly head into the mainstream.
