It is amazing what you can do with a boatload of money and a good PR firm.

If you're white, that is.
It was getting ugly, and I was thinking: “I’ve got to find myself an exit out of this situation and finish my song at the Lincoln Memorial.” I started going that way, and that guy in the hat [Sandmann] stood in my way, and we were at an impasse. He just blocked my way and wouldn’t allow me to retreat.

All of this media attention is just destroying these kids lives. They can't even wear blackface at basketball games anymore! Won't somebody think of the children*?

*white children, of course.

I don’t care what the hell y’all say. If wypipo can view young Black boys in hoodies as dangerous, and even kill them because of it (#TrayvonMartin), don’t tell us we can’t perceive a group of white boys in the modern equivalent of a klan hood, MAGA hats, as a threat.

is there a company some place which actually still makes blackface all these years after it rightly fell out of favour on the stage, or did the person above improvise with kiwi shoe polish or something? for a couple of reasons, a person doing so should probably get scoped out by a dermatologist at the very least given the pore-plugging and likely toxic qualities of said product, which is not meant to be applied to people, only shoes . . .

it could also be shinola®, and i am guessing that the painted-up fellow and whomever else thought it was a good idea doesn't know it from shit, as the saying goes . . .

Below is an article detailing the racism at Covington Catholic, including the backstory on the picture of blackfaced students and their repugnant chants.

so it may still have legitimate uses, as in the black line portions of the makeup donned by the band kiss, for example?
