'Racist' is far too ambiguous a term these days. I'm sure most of those 'offended' by the tweet don't know what racism is.

 

The photo's definitely in poor taste and not funny though.

It's getting stupid now. Unfortunately they'll be a time when genuine racist acts get ignored because of all these small incidents get blown out of proportion, eventually people will get sick.

Not all racism stems from hatred. A lot of it stems from ignorance or a misguided sense of superiority. Like saying all black people look the same. Thats racist because it's just stupid. Or the 19th century notion of "the white mans burden".

One of whom was white and another who looked so much like himself it was was actually him?

 

The 'that's not racist' brigade are almost as bad as the nuggets who post pictures like that in the first place

I was visiting the wife's family down in Shropshire in the summer and there were some traditional Morris Dancers on when we were visiting one of the local villages. Anyway, they were all blacked up like the black and white minstrels and apparently, so I was told, it was all to do with coal mining. It wasn't just smudges of soot like, it was proper thick caked on black oval faces so you could see why people might still think it was a bit off. :lol:

I like this bit...

 

 

The most common contemporary explanation abandons the historic references to servitude and provides a paradigm shift.

 

According to this view, Black Pete's dark skin can be attributed to soot gathered during his exploits up and down chimneys, delivering presents. Critics say this fails to justify the presence of Afro wigs and bright red lips, also integral to Black Pete's appearance.

 

Hair just frizzed up in the snow I suppose...and the red lips are cos it's cold, yes that'll do, cold.
