Blackface is TOTALLY NOT RACIST, GUYS!!
As seen in a comment left on this post from this morning:
What a ridiculess article, why cant white actors play black people when black actors like Eddie Murphy, Lenny Henry, Wayan Brothers and Chris Rock have played every race? These two play ALL characters. If you’re showing the world today is that white? No.
I see you’re in Holland, every seen what comedians like the guys from Draadstaal, Hans Teeuwen etc do? Now some of THAT actually IS racist!!
Eh, no. I am not in the business of educating people who have enough capabilities to type a comment on a screen but not the willingness to google the meaning of blackface in history.
No. That’s all I have to say.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
