Well, it was in Kentucky.

Not one little bit surprised.  Just Christians doing what Christians do to get the kids involved.  Appeal to the young people.  You know, like worship bands and all.

Holy Crap..I'm less offended about the black face stuff than using Boxing and Violence in their Christian Ministry.

Isn't boxing dangerously close to dancing for Baptists?

So? Have you seen a pic of teh baby Jebus? He was performing in whiteface every day.

Your the real racists.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

It's interesting that bigots will go after Christians for doing the same thing that the bigots applaud others for doing.

Black guy in whiteface is funnier than the other way around, although it's just... No, it's not as full of racist stereotypes. White people made a bunch of stereotypes about black people but there aren't many degrogatory stereotypes the other way.

Yeah, but I don't think old Kentucky is his home,
otherwise he'd know the darkies are gay.

No it isn't. It's an old, false, and boring meme. It's about as far from "interesting" as any other made up RW paranoia.

I can't believe no one went "dude don't farking do that". I've lived in Kentucky my entire life and the racists that you find every now and then are just weird.

If that were really true then you wouldn't have felt compelled to react to that or this as well.

You people shouldn't judge him. He's a man of GOD and nothing in the Bible forbids what he did so he did nothing wrong. Obviously this site is full of gay pedophiles, communists. dope smokers, and Obammy lovers.
You should all be reported to law enforcement and locked up for blaspheming our GOD!

Closer than the last time, though, so good try I guess.

No, son, you're a racist. Just go ahead and admit it. Everyone knows already, come on out of the closet.

I didn't realize how racist an American actor playing an Australian character playing an African American character in a movie inside a movie who's co-characters remind him that he's not really African American was. Truly you have a dizzying intellect.
 
2014-03-08 05:22:55 AM  
It looks to me like he was trying to impersonate Mr. T (poorly, but that's beside the point)...which begs the question:

Are we not allowed to make ourselves up to look like a particular celebrity just because he happens to be black?
 
2014-03-08 05:24:42 AM

1. raises the question "are we not allowed..."
2. you are allowed, it's just that some people might take offense, partly because
3. it's easy to step into racial stereotypes when portraying a person of another race, but
4. if you just skip the skin-darkening makeup you can probably get by, because
5. the ignorant think "blackface" means a non-black person wearing makeup to look like a black person.

that's because it's better to be white.

While the guy is an idiot of the highest caliber, when I think of black-face, I think of stuff like Al Jolson, faint painted coal black with hugely exaggerated lips doing a 'Yessir mastah, you da boss mastah' routine.  In my mind, what this nutsack did was stupid and unfunny, but at the same level.  Looks like he was trying to do a Mr. T impersonation more than anything.  Not that kids today know who Mr. T is (and I pity those fools).  Without more information in the article, it's hard to say what the guys intentions were.  It may have been racist in motivation, or he may have tried (and failed) to be a comedian or some such shiat.

No matter how slice it, though, he's a farking moran of the highest level.  You can't do that shiat, regardless if intent.  It's just the way is.  Some things will never change.
 
2014-03-08 05:41:37 AM  
NOT!  Not as the same level.  Damn poofrreading skillz.
 
2014-03-08 05:46:12 AM  
Sorry, still a little drunk.

His /tweets are a hoot. Among the shout outs to his "bros" ,pictures of Mitch and Rand,and target practice at the range are gems like " THIS JUST IN: If it walks like, talks like, acts like, & LOOKS LIKE a DUCK...then bet the farm sweetheart...IT'S A DUCK. "
Dumbass.

Read through some of that to try and get his motivation - it was Mr. T as a boxer.  The rest of the tweets I could see were pretty typical Baptist stuff.  I've got some stuff blocked so I couldn't see the whole site.

Anyway, still a maroon.

True but we should cut him some slack. This song and dance is most prolly just distracting from his pedophiliac interests.

When I was a teenager, our church used to send us to Aquire the Fire and Youth for the Nations.

There was so much repressed homosexuality and sexual desire there you could swim through the hormones.

"Blackface is a form of theatrical makeup used by white performers to represent a black person. " - The Ignorant, apparently.

This pastor who runs a "National" young fundamentalists' conference has a whopping 109 followers on Twitter - way to go with that youth outreach there, rev.

And seeing as his congregation appears from the pictures on the church's website to be multiracial and his church  runs a ministry for the Spanish-speaking community, I'm going with him being clueless about teh internets and not bigoted, although the final call on that doesn't rest with us but with his flock.

They need to stay the fark out of politics, though. Living your ministry and legislating your ministry are at cross-purposes (so to speak) with each other.

True,  It's certainly possible he didn't have a racist intent.
