  • Which is more offensive, white face, or black face?

    Think before you answer, Michael Jackson did white face, the Wayan Brothers made an entire movie in which they did white face,.
    if we believe in equality, why is there a double standard?

    My position has always been that Thomas Sowell is right in suggesting that to the extent that minorities react to racism with racism it makes it more difficult for them to emulate what would be in their best interest. What has worked for the majority will work for the minorities as long as institutional barriers are not created.

      Both. The Wayans, for example, should be banned forever from films for their racist portrayal of white females, not only racist but sexist as well. They should also be banned for their racist portrayals on In Living Color.

          Whereas I would say the opposite. We should tell those outraged by Black face, used for comedic purposes, or to lampoon something, to STFU. If we are outraged by comics doing what they do at every turn we'll be worse off for it.

              An actor by definition tries to appear to be someone he is not. Thus I see no problem in a white actor ‘blacking up’ to play Othello or indeed a black actor whitening their face to play a white character.
              If a white actor can give a good impression of being a Moorish Prince why shouldn’t he play one?

                Clearly, being born with a white face is very offensive these days... to the Leftist Establishment.

                  Exactly. If White face is acceptable, then Black face is acceptable. If there are limits on use of one, then there are limits on the use of the other.

                    Nothing like sounding as if you support white nationalism. Well done.
                    We are not now that strength which in old days
                    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                      Red herring argument. How do you get that from what I stated?

                        Because you failed to actually look at the history of black face. For examples blacks had to wear black face to actually perform back in the 20s or so.

                        At what point did whites have to wear white face beyond clowns.

                              another redherring. because how would you make women dress as women anymore than than they do. But mandating black were black face is another ball game.
