    I think it's not something as bad as a minstrel show, but it's insensitive at least
    "Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith but they are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the passion of Christ." - That Guy Everyone Quotes

        I love you mossy, but the Jerk is making a good point here. If a quote cannot be traced to a reliable source, it should be disregarded - no matter how juicy. That Trudeau is a liar is very much beside the point.

          Fine. I concede. My temper got the best of me.

                  I really dislike Trudeau.

                  I apologize for my snit.

                  The jerk is still a jerk, though.

If someone is doing it to mock black people then yeah, of course that is racist, but when someone is just trying to dress up like a favorite character for Halloween or something then that is not racist. It is actually them LIKING that person and wanting to pretend to be them. So whether a white person wants to dress up like Aladdin or George Washington Carver, or a black person wants to dress up like Bill Clinton, so what?

                    But the liberals have turned it into something that nobody can or should do, even in the past, when nobody cared. So I have no problem with people like Trudeau reaping what they sow. Liberal policies always come back to bite them on the hiney.
                    Pretty much the same with the whole "cultural appropriation" thing. It is one thing to dress up in order to make fun of a group but it is beyond silly when whites get told they can't serve tacos or wear a kimono -- all while simultaneously lauding someone who made an all black version of the broadway musical Hamilton.

                          If it were an all-white cast doing Roots, we would hear all about how racist it is.

                                I said that you were too nice to be truly mean and you proceeded to show me that I was wrong.
