I Rebuke Your Stupid Blackface Costumes… And It’s Still Not Your Flag Kanye

Two days ago I wrote a post that featured four pictures of various white people in Black face. One was Julianne Hough, an actress that I’ve never heard of, dressed as Crazy Eyes. She’s a character from a Orange is the New Black, a show that I’ve never seen.

Hough apologized. And it wasn’t one of those conditional apologies. “I apologize if…” or, “I’m sorry that you felt…” It was genuine, grown up apology. The other black facers, however, were less contrite.

The above pictures are of Uzo Aduba, the woman who plays Crazy Eyes. She’s pretty.

Not surprisingly, a couple of white kids have jumped into the fray. Donning what appeared to be a spray tan, platinum blond hair and a silver shirt, one proudly proclaimed that she was dressed as a nigger. Good thing, because without that I would have thought that they were just two white girls with too much spray tan. Anyway, you got a problem with that? If you do she thinks that you should go find out who your father is… because, well… Um…

Girl puts on too much spray tan. Says she’s going out for Halloween as a nigger. This is what she looks like without the tan.

Yeah, whatever. From here on out, racists are going to have to try a lot harder to get space on this here blog. Its not that I mind writing about misguided racist assholes, but these are just racists asshole copycats. It’s a mad dash to see who can be the most offensive. It won’t end well, but in the meantime, I couldn’t be bothered.

I hereby rebuke them. I suggest you all do the same. Poof, begone from my Facebook feed, assholes. I don’t have time for your foolishness. See if you can find a way to fuck up Groundhog’s day. Halloween is too easy. It’s making you guys lazy.

That goes for Kanye West, too. Last week pictures appeared of his line of rebel flag T-shirts. I won’t post a picture of them. His reason for doing it is offensive enough. Here’s why, straight from his mouth.

“React how you want. Any energy you got is good energy. You know the confederate flag represented slavery in a way — that’s my abstract take on what I know about it. So I made the song ‘New Slaves.’ So I took the Confederate flag and made it my flag. It’s my flag now. Now what are you going to do?”

Silly Kanye. I could write about the flag, and why him selling the shirts with the confederate flag on it is as counter intuitive as Jerry Seinfeld changing his name so that it begins with two SS’s (SSeinfeld) because of anti-semiticism. But I’m not going to do that. The place in my brain that comes up with rational responses to stupid shit is closed for retraining. I’m in my happy place.

See that picture? That’s what I think of Kanye West, and his feud with the President, and his stupid shirts and the way Jimmy Kimmel was so mean to him that he just wanted to lay down on the floor and kick his feet because of his leather sweat pants. He’s in time out until he calms down a little bit. Then we can talk to him. But if we give him what he wants he’ll just throw another tantrum… and try to steal Kwanzaa or copyright the the color red, or something equally stupid.

Of course, Kanye’s right. All of my energy is good energy. So I will no longer be sending it in the direction of racist dirtbags or misguided man-children like Kanye West. I suggest you do the same.

      • Some people are strange (leather sweatpants? Really?) and some are shockingly ignorant (spray tan mole girl) and there’s just no getting around that. I do really like what you said about not letting them suck your time or energy. Sometimes all us ‘normal’ folks can do is shake your head and pray to God our kids don’t turn out that way. My mom frequently said to me growing up, “don’t judge people, your kids aren’t born yet”. I get that now.

  2. Your Mom was right. And for the record, I’m plenty strange myself. That is one stone that I can’t throw.
    What Kanye is attempting to do, though, is pimp out the racial anxiety in this country, so that he can gain a few more minutes in the spotlight. He’s an attention addict. So I actually have a greater capacity for anger towards him than the little spray tanned mole rat girls. But then I breath deeply, and go to my special place.
