Can we talk about how Tracey Ullman is a celebrated comedian with a show where she dresses up in black/brown face from time to time and how the hell this is happening still
Well that’s thoroughly uncomfortable.
Tumblr gives me a plethora of people to hate.
[Image: A picture of three extremely racist, bigoted, anti-Black white young women posting with their shorts stuffed and in Black face.]
the heck are you all doing?
Aaaaaaaaaand this is why no one likes y’all.
why nobody invites white people to shit. They do crap like this.
When white people ask me why I hate white people.
Yeah, don’t ask me that no more.
This is just…stomach churning, disgusting, and so fucking bigoted. What kills me (besides the fact that this just pretty much showing just how supremacist and sociopathic we white folks really are as a group) is that these girls had to take the fucking time to apply all this and do this.
They didn’t just take a five second snapshot on a whim. They had to come up with this, plan it, all agree on it, then apply the makeup (?) to their bodies, then think about what to wear and to stuff their shorts and how to pose and everything.
In essence, they had a lot of time to stop and think about what a BAD FUCKING IDEA AND HORRIBLE, HURTFUL, BIGOTED SHITTY THING this was to do. Lots of time. And they didn’t.
They went through a long, complex, time-consuming set of actions specifically for the purpose of treating Black women subhumanly and showing their utter disrespect and hatred for Black women in this pic.
That’s what you need to remember about these photos, fellow white people. Shitheads like this aren’t just kids doing this on a whim. They’re thinking about it.
This is premeditated, carefully executed sociopathy in action. They took their damn time about it.
I am so fucking sick. These three burgeoning white supremacists aren’t fit to take up space. Fuck them.
I can’t even ragequit over this. I actually refuse to.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Victoria Foyt decided to write a dystopian young adult series called Save the Pearls in which global warning has made dark skin and its supposed ability to withstand “The Heat” the most valuable genetic manifestation one can possess. This increases their “mate rate” in a world where people must mate at an early age for some reason or another. You can read more about the story’s premise here (from the author’s failure-ridden interview with the Huffington post) and here (which includes some amazing commentary from Tumblr users).
Let’s dissect this waste of monetary resources, paper, and cosmic existence.
LOL SPECTRUM WHAT IS THIS
I AM PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO DEAL WITH THIS NONSENSE.
SAY IT AIN’T SO
Thank you, Tumblr. Ya’ll keep me away from the stupidity before I get sucked into it.
Um. You do realize that blackface is blackface, no matter what the reason, and therefore is never acceptable? Blackface is racist. Being racist for art isn’t edgy. IT’S RACIST. PERIOD. God, y’all can’t be serious.
… what are you doing?
Hey now, hey now, don’t tell me this is not offensive. Yes, A person of color can do blackface and it be offensive. What I don’t understand is why a darker skinned model wasn’t hired. You’d rather spend extra money to………
I can’t with you people!
Before I hop on this bandwagon, I’d like to know WHY this was done in the first place. What sort of a project was this for? I need some back ground history.
Mite b shock art.
There is also the possibility that they wanted it to look strange and unnatural, to unnerve the audience.
Because darker skin is strange and unnatural.
The logic has left the building.
