Rich white people are often insulated from the wider world and rarely face consequences for their actions, which leads to questionable decision making.

Harry Freakstorm: So, my rip off of Blue Man Group, Black Man Group is DUI? Or maybe it's DOA. I get them confused. Which reminds me. I gotta tell that lady to go to the morgue and not the detox center if she wants to see her husband.


Blue Man Group is insensitive to autoerotic asphyxiation victims.

Black face has and always will be funny.  The reason blacks don't like it, is because if they do black face, no one laughs.

Yeah, but black people in whiteface is funny. Well when these black people stop THEIR racism (which they are far worse than whites), I will stop thinking of them by that little word they call themselves all day long. Just remember, white men can't jump, but black men can't swim. :)

Land mimes are a weapon of war, which is why there is an extensive mimefield between Best and Worst Korea. The poor soldiers will never see the invisible walls that hit them.

So if you're trying to dress up as a black character, what's the appropriate way to do it?

"Nobody has the right to not be offended. That right doesn't exist in any declaration I have ever read.

If you are offended it is your problem, and frankly lots of things offend lots of people.

I can walk into a bookshop and point out a number of books that I find very unattractive in what they say. But it doesn't occur to me to burn the bookshop down. If you don't like a book, read another book. If you start reading a book and you decide you don't like it, nobody is telling you to finish it.

To read a 600-page novel and then say that it has deeply offended you: well, you have done a lot of work to be offended."

...Some of them think molesting children is amusing and don't care if you're offended. See how little logic your comment makes now?...


Ummmmmmm.........

Too much thinking making brain hurt? My point is racism and child molestation are both disgusting and their existence doesn't make them acceptable. Maybe try reading the whole comment instead of quoting out of context ;)


Racial insensitivity and diddling kids are...... nowhere close to being the same thing.

Mugato: doubled99: I guess "White Girls" is the most offensive movie ever then.

White people don't have a history of extremely racist cartoons about them being depicted as animals or Amos n Andy or the aforementioned minstrel shows. Hence the difference.


Nope. Sorry. If whites in blackface are racist, then blacks in whiteface are racist, too.  And then add the sexism of men posing as women, and you have "White Chicks".

1) European

They have no cultural baggage and aren't operating under the same set of rules as USAmericans re: race relations.

2) Fashionistas

Even if they were, they are soulless automatons without conscience or regard for others. So it doesn't matter.

If you've thrown and/or been to so many parties, that "Disco Africa" seems like a sane and reasonable theme choice, then you probably ought to think about just checking out of whatever scene you're in for a while.

Nice effort,  RedPhoenix122, but let's remember our performance hierarchy: legitimate theatre, musical theatre, stand-up, ventriloquism, magic, mime.

We might not find it funny right now, but in the 20s, it was a f*cking riot, apparently.

Also, what RedPhoenix122 said.
