In regards to my unsavory work experience today, I have a lot of this in my inbox:
White People: PEOPLE HAVENT USED BLACKFACE FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS!!!1!1!1 You are exaggerating!Stop making something out of nothing!
And so on…
Oh, really? I think you need both a history lesson, and some quick look at some of your relatives FB accounts.
We are not a costume. Cultures are not a costume.
Making a mockery of cultures is racist.
Blackface is racist no matter how you slice it.
And if you think otherwise, then it is simple, you are also racist.
