Every year its the same thing when it comes Halloween -- some white person is going to dress in Blackface and feign surprise when people jump on their asses for being offensive. They then issue some tepid apology and hope that everything will be forgotten. I swear its the same thing every year.
So I'm not going to ask a question about what you all think about all these white people dressing in Blackface and why they think its appropriate. My real question is why when black people dress up as white people we never paint ourselves white? Why is that?
I have a younger cousin who dressed her one year old daughter up as snow white, but not at one time did she ever consider making her daughter's face white.
Question of the Day: Why don't Black people use Whiteface?
