Mike Wallace: Black history month you find ridiculous. Why?
Morgan Freeman: You're going to relegate my history to a month?
Mike Wallace: Oh, c'mon.
Morgan Freeman: What do you do with yours? Which month is white history month? Well, c'mon, tell me.
Mike Wallace: I'm Jewish.
Morgan Freeman: OK, which month is Jewish history month?
Mike Wallace: There isn't one.
Morgan Freeman: Oh, oh. Why not? Do you want one?
Mike Wallace:No.
Morgan Freeman: No, I don't either. I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history.
Mike Wallace: How we gonna get rid of racism until...
Morgan Freeman: Stop talking about it. I'm going to stop calling you a white man. And I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman.

the folks at the NAACP must spend the bulk of their work days laughing at stupid shiat like this.

This is the kind of thing where the University just needs to pull little amelia aside and tell her to stop rabble rousing over nothing.

In less than 4 years, shes going to have to have a JOB somewhere, if she considers this an accomplishment, shes going to have a rough go when asked to produce things.

Its something the school has a DUTY to amelia to do.

So, wait, the ONLY reason to wear black makeup now is blackface?

They do realize that black people arent actually BLACK, right?

Well of course, they were wearing the wrong orange and black. Any of these would suffice instead:

Other schools have pulled off "Black Out" promotions by wearing black shirts and no one complained about race. What makes Oregon State so special?

Couldn't they just dress up as beavers instead? That would be something I could get into.

It's all true apparently! Us evil Goth people have been wearing black most of our days, even the black Goths, they must be racist too!

Oregon State apparently has students who think "wear black" means "dress up like Al Jolson."

This.

Nobody had a problem with wearing black. And I don't think anybody had a problem with the black face paint. But people did have a problem with people wearing black face paint and wearing afro wigs. That will tend to piss people off.

I actually went back and did a little research on the 2007 blackout to see if I can find anything offensive. There's nothing there and it's showing how ignorant people are when it comes to what blackface really is. One notable aspect of blackface is that the lips are exaggerated to the point that it makes you look like a clown.

I also need to save this post for the inevitable whining after Halloween when someone supposedly puts on blackface to look like Lil Wayne.

Question for you: Should this piss people off? 

Sometimes people just have to use common sense when looking at some of these things.

"This community is not ready for having a blackout Reser or a wear black day when students don't realize wearing black could be really culturally insensitive," said Amelia Harris, president of the Associated Students With A Stick Up Their Ass of OSU.

While you're all here, I'd like to note that I have this really funky rash, and I'd appreciate if you'd stop wearing red and purple spotted clothing.

/Uh oh, that's not supposed to come loose...

"Even if I wear black makeup and I don't think its harmful or racist, that doesn't mean someone won't take it very seriously," Harris said.

This is how a "I'm sorry if you were offended" statement is born.

Well, it's not like Ninjas have a real effective lobby these days. I mean, even Pirates have "Talk Like A Pirate Day". Nobody celebrates "Stalk Like A Ninja Day".

Where did makeup come from? I thought they were saying wear black clothing.

CSB time.

So I am sitting here with a co-worker reading the headline and I immediately say "Obviously been to Jersey Shore". He tells me I need to post that in the comments. I guaranteed him it would be the Weeners.

End CSB Time.

wearing black/or using black body paint not the same thing as black face

If you paint your face black and insist it isn't black face because you're not enhancing your lips, you're kind of an asshole.

So, Miss Amelia cannot tell the difference between "Wear Black" and "Minstrel Show". Let's see if Miss Amelia has a reason to be concerned.

black man here? can someone explain how you get the jump from wear black clothing = wear black face?
 
2012-10-04 10:29:55 AM  
All of these blackout, whiteout, redout things are retarded. You look like idiots and your stunts do nothing to affect the game.

Now go to the team webpage and be sure to get your blackout T-shirt for tonight's game. Only $29.95.

Black_Lazerus: black man here? can someone explain how you get the jump from wear black clothing = wear black face?


giving a 110%! support your team!

there's black face paint and then there's black face with afros. apparently the latter happen during the 2007 "blackout" and 5 years later there are "concerns" that students still haven't learned to wear black appropriately. i say trade out the school color black for teal. imagine what horrible things nike could do with orange and teal.

Haere mai
I read the thread expecting something from you but since you hadn't been here yet I jumped in for you.
The AB's have certainly been on fire (except that dodgy Argie game in sunny Wellington), and I hope they cap it off with a beating against the Bokkies this weekend!
