Oh and, for the record, Blackface is pretty much never okay, and Hanks deserves to reap the whirlwind on this one. If you've written a role that only works as a black man, and you can't find an actual black person willing to fill it, just drop it. If you discover that a role alongside you uses blackface, walk off stage.

However-

"While Academy Award-winner and Obama supporter Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey parade around in the worst racial stereotypes imaginable, they mock Republicans. I guess they believe that inoculates them from bathing in open racism."

Oh, check it out, the only reason Breitbart's ghost is reporting on this.

I'd think if Breitbart had anything to say right now, the most pressing one would be: "GET ME OUT OF HERE! IT'S DARK AND I CAN'T BREATHE!"

It is proper Latin with one 'g' - the opposite of "albus" which means white man - but the derogatory term should raise flags everywhere..

You're supposed to respond to that with "Breitbart sounds like a hideous, terrifying monster".

I think it's totally appropriate for Obama to issue a national apology for Glenn Frey.

It's time to move past the musical holocaust that was The Eagles and let the healing begin.

I was at a Karoke party to raise money for a charity. Everyone had costumes and a co-worker showed up in black face as Stevie Wonder. Even did a horrible impression of him singing. It was really really bad and many people were uncomfortable. Not just the black-face thing but making fun of the blindness. It was like a horrible episode of The Office or something.

Anyways, I guess I was a racist for being there.

I used to love that song "Don Henley Must Die" in college.

Don Henley must die!
Don't let him get back together
With Glenn Frey!

I don't think so. I think it was a sub-conscience screw up that an operator made.

Blackface denotes not just the application of make up, but the denegration of blacks that was prevalent in theater and media more than a generation ago. Back when there was real descrimination against different ethnicities for work and were racially portayed.

Simply portraying a different ethnicity is not necessarily "racist".

Well, at minimum it was in extremely poor taste. The whole jungle angle didn't help. I didn't have the audio on the clip so it was hard to tell if they were satirizing the black-face itself (which is what I suspect). In any case, I doubt Hanks was behind the concept and he was making it painfully clear that he was reading the jokes provided to him. The jokes were attacking Conservatives.

It's still risky and stupid, like finding an excuse to say "nigardly" [sic] (filtpwn?) and playing "gotcha" with people who tell you cut it out.

"Hah! I've subversive!"
"Yeah, that joke about racism is really edgy. You can tell because everyone who heard it is uncomfortable and doesn't like you."

The guy in makeup didn't say a word, that was audible anyway. They were auctioning off a giant stuffed gorilla or something. Hanks compared the gorilla to Bill O'Reilly..the only "attack" I heard. And from what I understand O'Reilly is huge, hairy, and stuffed full of it, not black.

Add Tom Hanks and Glenn Frey to the list of America Haters, right behind Robert DeNiro.

The heat is on you now, Obama. You thought you could take it easy for four more years, but your lyin' eyes will give you a heartache tonight, I know because there's a new kid in town named Mitt Romney and he knows that people like you belong to the city of Chicago and not Real America. I bet your peaceful, easy feeling is already gone.

No, it means Don Henley is automatically president and Obama has to join Steely Dan.

Steely Dan was a much better band than the Eagles, anyway.
