Id do blackface to impersonate Michael Jackson too cuz MJ is the GOAT

I can vouch for the shoe polish being hard to get off. Even with a cloth your hands still get stained when polishing your boots, and wearing rubber gloves (surgical, because that was all they had at the shopette near my barracks in basic training) still wasn't complete protection. Washing it off is tough and takes lots of scrubbing. Still, I'll never understand why people feel the need to paint their faces black. Wearing the costume would have been sufficient.

Isn't dressing up as someone a sign of admiration and not hate? Why is this even a problem? I feel like everyone is just looking for an excuse to accuse someone of racism. Like I can agree with blackface being offensive, but when every little thing becomes blackface it makes the credibility of those accusations seem kind of unserious. Anyways, the people who aren't racist aren't supposed to apologise for it either so stop looking for the little things that might be interpreted as racist when the man or woman clearly isn't racist.

*Negroes must count their blessings. They must remember that 60 short years ago, they were being water-cannoned and hounded by police dogs. It's human nature that you give a man an inch and he'll take a mile. But this is very dangerous for Negroes because they are testing the white man's patience. We have given you an inch, be content with that. Don't ask for a yard, let alone a mile. Our patience is running thin with your BLM and national anthem kneel-downs and all the rest of it. Remember, we still control the country, we have far higher IQs than you, we are 66% of the population and you are just 13%. Don't push it. If it ever comes to a race war, even dopes like you can figure out who will be the victor. A blackface isn't hurting anyone. It's just paint on someone's face. Don't make a mountain out of a molehill (although everyone knows that that is what Negroes enjoy doing). Push us too far and we will push back. Know when to stop, pinheads.*

You got some white folk that are soo racist and stuck in the old ways that they actually truly believe that white skin is not color⁉️😕🤔well okaayy uhhh; I guess your a ghost, or some sort of apparition or translucent muthafuka. LoL 😂

Them Ol' Texas ass white folk ain't gone let you slide on shit yo. He wanted to see if that old white guy can do the moonwalk or not. If he can't then; (that was you in that blackface!, you's a lying sombitch!) But if he can then; (hmmh, well I guess you wanted to be one of them all along huh). You in a lose-lose situation dealing with Texas.

How the hell you gonna darken your face pretending to be Michael Jackson, when Mike was actually way more paler than white people?🤔🤔🤔
Jimmy Roberts

Woodchuck Willy
Michael Jackson turns out to have worn white face. Ralph just wanted to get even.
Christopher G.
He admits to wearing "black face" but he doesn't know who he was in the photo?
Kira Anastasia Andersen
the world was so different back then, like its crazy how everyone thought back then, you are a product of how u are raised, so it isnt a suprise that someone did this in the 80s, but love that wife hahah WHY are there so many men in power, probably because they have a woman to help them get there
ajdoman317
And he's still the governor of Virginia? Liberal bias at its finest. He would have been gone within the hour if he was a Republican.
theresa webb
