Seeing Racism Everywhere: Photo Of Soot-Covered Coal Miners Criticized For ‘Blackface

Seeing Racism Everywhere: Photo Of Soot-Covered Coal Miners Criticized For ‘Blackface’

The New York Times isn’t the only outlet claiming white people with soot on their faces are actually portraying “blackface.” For the Times, it was Mary Poppins and the chimney sweepers.

Even going after Mary poppins ...

White people are "retro-actively" practicing black face, you mean? 'Cause back when those coal miners were ruining their health to scrape a living together, black-face wasn't really a thing poor white people practiced.

More manufactured outrage.

Years ago, Eddie Murphy was doing a skit on SNL where he got painted up with "white face" (I guess you could call it). He went out into public and was portraying to be treated differently because he was white. It was funny... back then.

We should drag that out of history like all the efftards are doing now with everything, and say he is raciss and accuse him of cultural appropriation.

tell ya what .......

you bring those assholes here and we will take them valley over, valley over and up the valley,

we can push them into at least a dozen bars in late afternoon and tell the guys sitting drinking still covered in coal dust that these assholes are talking shit about them claiming the coal on their faces makes them low life scum racists

they will be lucky to survive the first bar

in fact the barmaids just might get to the assholes before the coal miners and kick the ever-loving shit out of them, yeah we got some tough barmaids
(ever hear the phrase "Fight, F*ck or Run" )

when we are finished w/ the loud mouthed assholes there are still some open bootleg holes that have not been blown shut that the bodies can be dumped down, takes about 20 seconds until a rock hits sulphur water in the bottom when you drop it

Then what would a black man working in a tunnel project digging through limestone or a vein of chalk be called? One has to wonder.

Let's take up a collection for the One-Way bus tickets to wherever this is you are talking about. It would be worth the money to clean out some of these imbeciles from the gene pool.

Plus some of the money should go to these barmaids and coal-miners for extra beer or 'squeezins, whatever they need to celebrate after dumping the trash into these "20 second drop" holes.

I have no idea of what all the hoopla is about.
it is the liberal press and libtards making shit up again.
it was just some DUMB college kid probably drunk screwing around.
they did a lot of shit worse then that where I grew up in the 60's and nobody got butthurt about it.
Hell, I heard more pollock jokes in one day in high school then most folks will hear in a lifetime. I didn't run and cry, hell I LAUGHED and joined in on the fun.
Remember TV... how about Amos and Andy? Anybody??
how about the honeymooners? not exactly a portrayal of high class white folks.

For crying out loud. Today, in a New York Times story article, they spoke of a Professor, Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, who is claiming that scenes in the Mary Poppins movie are racist. The song and dance number on the rooftops with Dick Van Dyke, the chimney sweep, are unwitting racists for having soot on their faces after having been in the chimney.

Looks like there will be no end to this crap. This libtard, snowflake, genius must lay awake at night slapping his carrot, thinking up lunacy like this. What could possibly top this?

The net gives these jerks a far bigger audience than they deserve, all they want is to stir the pot. Most everything on the net now is to make the problem look far bigger between the sides. One day they will do this to pick a fight like a bully does.

Jarhead

yeah just a regular bar fight in the area is rather enlightening


I've seen brothers (from the same mother) take it outside and the blood flows and flies and when its over they go back inside to finish their drinks before anything else happens

Brother Cava3r4: Are you a Pollock too? My Grandfather was born in Warsaw and my Dad used to tell Pollock jokes all the time. We would laugh but my sister would get furious for dumb-ass reason.

One of my favorite: What's the difference between a Polish dictionary and and English dictionary?

A: They both have the same number of words but the English dictionary is in alphabetical order.

I repeat this to workers but it is lost on lots of modern turds as they do not know what a dictionary is or ever use one.

Anyone remember this:

https://isitfunnyoroffensive.com/the...e-performance/

There was a small bit of controversy then over Ted Danson's black face performance at his girl friend's roast

Whoopie knew all about it, it was her idea
in the days that followed Danson did the black face a couple more times

“Let’s get these words all out in the open. It took a whole lot of courage to come out in blackface in front of 3,000 people. I don’t care if you didn’t like it. I did,” she said at the roast.
“If they knew me,” Goldberg said the week after the roast, “they would know that Whoopi has never been about political correctness. I built my whole career destigmatizing words like ‘nigger.'”

Used to be I had a bit of respect for the bitch
she was pretty up in the face of the early PC crowd

Then there is Oprah's boyfriend Stedman Graham
He's mixed but you look at old pix of him he's real dark
rumor is he went in for skin bleaching treatments to look actually White

Yeah same crap Michael Jackson went through

Black face isn't controversial

Frank Sinatra
Mickey Rooney
Betty Grable
Bing Crosby
Judy Garland

all did black face in films

Then there were all the fake Indians and Latinos in westerns in brown face
shit we didn't start seeing actual Indians in Hollywood roles until the 70s with Chief Dan George in Little Big Man and later The Outlaw Josey Wales

I am sick of dimwits getting offended

Hell when was the last time you saw Disney's Song of the South ?
That's a great old movie, nothing racist in it really but it's been black balled since the early 90s

Then there is all the liberal gnashing of teeth over the old Hillary pic of her in black face
look up the snopes nonsense discrediting it
truth is there were no shits given about black face until well into the Obama era.
Example ?
Tyra Banks had contestants model in Black Face for her network runway show in 2009
That's how recent this shit actually is

Oh yeah, there should be a national conversation on this trash

Okay
Liam Neeson's recent use of the term Black Bastard and how he wanted to murder the scumbag that violently raped a friend of his decades ago
I don't like Neeson's politics one bit but the simple use of the term Black Bastard to reference a rapist isn't the least bit racist if the scumbag happens to indeed be Black

Some of this started in the late 90s with news
Okay cops are looking for a suspect but the news won't tell you that they are Black
White or Asian sure
This wasn't the police doing this, it was networks
this is why Neeson is now a racist, because he stated that the bastard was Black
thing is it would have been the same controversy had he said Black scumbag or even quite properly a Black Rapist.

Oh Hell, you want absolutely Comical YH ?

Back in the 80s I had two customers that bought much of my racial advertising garbage through a buddie I'd consign it to in St. Paul MN
Whoopie and fukin' Oprah

Oprah is just huge into the old school Black head Cookie Jars and high preservation Black advertising side boards.
The crazy cartoon like shit that's pretty degrading really
Bitch was doing her show one time on location in the Metro, showed up at my friends antique store on Payne Ave. Dropped nearly 2K
She turned Whoopie on to the shop

Goldberg was really into Slavery memorabilia that I was importing out of West Africa through a couple African friends that were exchange students at the U of M back then.
African Blacks thought it funny that American Blacks were all into that junk
I never had much luck selling Blacks cultural antiques from Africa...go figure

Known other affluent Blacks that were my best customers for vintage KKK memorabilia. Robes, paperwork, membership tags and coins
they saw it as part of the experience of being Black in America
Same way some of the tribe collects Holocaust items

My view is much of the current onslaught of the nutters is being driven by bloggers and tweeters that are just young and ignorant
For the most part older Blacks really are not getting into this idiot debate
in fact it's mostly young White metrosexual types from my casual observations

I was reading but don't know if it's all true but John Wayne did a black face in the Spoilers. He called it Alabama tan. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0035369/?ref=m_nv_sr_1

It's funny they will go back so many years and try to hang white folks for doing black faces. I guess all the old war movies are now subject to the same treatment.

I play the democrap game of publicly calling anything that's inanimate and white, racist.

Cars, cake, clothing, houses, snow, etc. are all racist if white. Righty's get it...lefty's don't know what to think and STFU and/or give me the look.
