2) It's good that you have a policy of not explaining racism to non-blacks. I wouldn't want someone who can't even comprehend that people of all races can experience racism explaining that **** to me.
3)Black face has a well established history of being offensive. You're right about that. But caricatures are by nature offensive, no matter who the target is. Just look at how easily I can apply some of your points on black face to white face:
-Used as a “Set up” to the joke
-Used to belittle and make fun of those that are white
-Originally done by black people for black people
-A degrading visual joke (Ha! Ha! Look at me, I’m one of THEM! I listen to rock music, can't dance and enjoy the taste of dog spit!)
-Makes white people into caricatures (not human, a symbol to belittle)
-A sign of racism
4a) "-If a white person’s feelings were hurt by white face, they wake up the next day and no one will judge THEM by what they saw. Black people were (and still are) BELIEVED to be these caricatures."
Let's say no one does judge them by what they saw; does that mean that the fact that their feelings were hurt is now irrelevant? Also, you and I both know a multitude of people that will attest that white people act exactly as characterized in movies like white girls. People believe those caricatures as well because if they weren't believable they wouldn't be good caricatures.
4b) "white ppl don't even believe this is racist or offensive, dude, never have."
You're not white. How do you know? Even if you were you can't speak for every white person.
4c) "whites just look for any little thing a Black person does to hang their hats on."
This right here is just blatant racism. If this sentence was reversed
Oh wait I forget, there's no such thing as racism against whites. Nevermind.
4d) "no white person will be harmed by Nick's spoof. come on, sons
In conclusion, what you're arguing is, that when an action is done to one race, it is racism, but when done to another, it's not. That is just idiotic. You're a racist and you don't eem know it, which explains why you have such a skewed view on what does and does not qualify as racism.@LIONBLOOD
