Published on September 21, 2019

“If you’re gonna have the fun of black, you must also take the s**ttiness that comes with being black as well.” Trevor lays out a plan to deter people from wearing blackface

    Oh stop being pissed off at acting are you not covered in makeup,hell i saw a black man once covered in sun screen and didn’t go into meltdown,don’t believe you blacks are sooooo susceptible.putting makeup on is about context ,making such a big deal about it is stupid and for a race of such strong people yo are coming off a bit wimpish bro!

    Haha everyone in the Netherlands would be black because Blackface is literally a yearly tradition here… (I don’t approve of it and it’s definitely a point of discussion here and it’s changing, but it does definitely still exist)

    Punishment for wearing make up in costume? Are you kidding me? Sure, Disney can cast a dark skinned actress for a remake of their own movie which featured a redhead mermaid, but it’s a crime for a person to pretend to be a character with skin darker than theirs.

    The police is shooting down people with dark skin for no good reason, but sure, makeup is the thing we have to cry about. Fuck this world…

    For guidelines on the punishment, see John Howard Griffin, “Black Like Me” (published 1961).

    There could be some real advantages to implementing this idea, if the offender really did get treated like an actual black person for a year. I bet you’d see some laws and inequalities change REAL quick as rich white family members tried to skirt the law and save their loved one. Brock is placed in a mostly-black school that’s short on funding and still has a gravel parking lot and only a handful of outdated computers in their computers lab? Watch that school suddenly have an “anonymous” donation to fix everything. Some families would be scandalized and pretend that person didn’t exist for a year, but I bet at least some of them would start caring a whole lot more about how black people get treated.

    I have some black relatives. I don’t call them African-american because they were born in America and are Americans. They weren’t born in Africa then moved here. I’m a “white” guy whose family is from Germany yet I’m called American not a german-american because I was born in America not Germany.
    That official labeling of those who aren’t “white” needs to disappear.
    If you were born here then you are an American.

    Now my relatives call themselves the N word or some variation of that word in causal conversations. They greet each other using the N word or shorter versions.
    You want the way people are treated to change, well it’s not just that easy, but it should be evident to stop using words which you don’t like other people to use because it’s not helping your cause.

    Now I will still call our president retarded because he is and he makes fun of the mentally handicapped so he deserved that label.

    Sounds fair, Trevor.

  • linux750 10 months ago

    Yeah, but do you what would ruin that as a punishment Trevor? All of the smartasses who would want to cheat the system so they can hang on to the benefits of being black. Dudes who just got done with their “life as a black person sentencing” would try to hang on to the benefits of having larger genitalia or fuller butts.

    I don’t think putting face make-up on to portray a character should be considered “racist”. Nor insensitive.
    The nation so progressive women can kill babies and men are “brave” for cutting their penises off; can’t pretend to be a different race on Halloween… to portray a character of that race… not point out or draw attention to any stereotypical attributes.
    Yeah that’s dumb

    He’s just not funny. He tries so hard. But his delivery fails to land Everytime.

  • Chris Carmona 10 months ago

    Not sure if that’s a good punishment, though. I can only imagine being black’s kind of addictive. Remember Rachel Dolezal? Does she really like being black or is she just being punished for life for doing blackface for a long time? Nobody knows.
