    why is blackface so damn offensive? people wear sombreros and ponchos to look like Mexicans, and red hair spray, clovers and green beer to look like irish.

    I think men dressing up as women is a lot like black face. It isn't funny and it's crude. SNL cast members use to dress up as women and I never found it funny. My thought was, "Why not just hire a woman?"

  • Adam Peter Garcia-Varner

    I am Jesus, and alot of black people believe I am really black.. If I color myself black that's giving them what they want..
    Dressing like black people is what black people want.. I think it's necessary to protect this right.

    I am sure that things are different in states with a history of slavery. But generally speaking it can never be wrong to dress up as your hero/idol - not even if it requires some facial paint.

    Its kind of funny since SNL featured blackface a lot in the very recent past.

  • KunstKrieg KinoPix Studios

    Meanwhile, the funny part is how SNL had a skit about Hurricane Katrina featuring a blackface impersonation of Aaron Neville in 2005. Don't get me started on how many times they've done Oriental Face impersonations due to the fact that they have never had an Asian cast member.

    How is it bad if you are wearing a costume with "black face" to celebrate that person ?! I understand and know about black face historically was used to portray a race like lazy, unintelligent etc... so in this case i understand why it is wrong but if you are celebrating a person and acknowledging his achievements i don't see anything wrong.

    Hello, ignorant Danish male here:
    When it comes to blackface, why doesn't context matter? Why is dressing up like Mr. T or any other black person for Halloween unacceptable for white people? I am fully aware of the history of blackface, I have studied it extensively on Wikipedia and Google images, so I am now an expert on the subject. But, no, for real though. Context should matter, and dressing as Mr. T is a tribute to him, not an affront towards all black people. It's not racist. Dressing up as a black person, when you're not, is comedic, as all costumes are. We make fun about pedophilia, the Holocaust, and 9/11, dark humor, sure, but we've moved past it, so why not too with an admittedly atrocious act like blackface. Remember when Julianne Hough got shit for dressing up like the black character from Orange is the New Black? Why? It's wasn't intentionally racist, she's just a fan of the show. Context matters. The case with Northam is a bit on the nose, I admit, since it was literally a blackface costume, but again, it was for Halloween, when you dress up as monsters and stuff. It's clearly a reference to the historical practice, and with a KKK buddy, it adds to the obvious comedic intention.It's not hahaha funny, but it's also clearly not with racist intent. Because context matters. Why is Eddie Murphy allowed to act as a stereotypical white person on SNL for comedic effect? Why is Dave Chappelle allowed to do the same? No, I won't cry black privilege or some alt-right gobbledygook. I'll just say this: context matters.
    Now please, let me know what you think. Let's resolve America's tragic history of slavery, oppression and racism in this one comment thread on this one SNL skit on RU-clip, why don't we...

    tHIS IS RACIST AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. BLACK PEOPLE DDO WHITE FACE QUITE OFTEN AND SPEAK LIKE A REDNECK WITH AUTISM.. WITH NP. BUT IF Michael Jordan was a hero of mine and if i dressed up in his jersey/shorts and darkened the color of my face bc its ridiculous to dress up as michael jordan if you're clearly white.theres No racist intent to offend/falsify implications bc im simply trying to make my costume as realistic as possible (halloween is full of costumes trying to look as realistic as poss) and im not doing anything racist like jordan dressed as a cotton picking slave or talk like an old slave. just as michael is in real life. its ignorant to say thats inappropriate. f--- that

      humans are 100% African, 99.9% identical 荊綾

      The eldest Europeans are African by tens of millions of years then Hispanics by tens of thousands of years. Hispanic African (Denisovan) dna is atleast 400k years old and the Hispanics have been in the Americas for atleast 60k years. Modern ethnicities didn't spread African depigmentation genes until 5-8k years ago
      "When it comes to skin color, the team found a patchwork of evolution in different places, and three separate genes that produce light skin, telling a complex story for how Europeans skin evolved to be much lighter during the past 8000 years. The modern humans who came out of Africa to originally settle Europe about 40,000 years are presumed to have had dark skin, which is advantageous in sunny latitudes. And the new data confirm that about 8500 years ago, early hunter-gatherers in Spain, Luxembourg, and Hungary also had darker skin: They lacked versions of two genes-SLC24A5 and SLC45A2-that lead to depigmentation and, therefore, pale skin in Europeans today."

    So just to be clear, its ok to wear blackface if its part of your costume, for a contest, as an homage to your hero, or if it was the 80s. But, other than that, blackface isnt cool. Unless, youre just goofing around with your friends.
