Is it all racist fun and games when Julianne Hough steps out in blackface?

Ted Danson, Julianne Hough, Robert Downey Jr. and John Slattery mock, insult and degrade blacks with impunity.

It’s the 21st century but blacks remain the one race people still think it’s okay to insult, mock and degrade with impunity. Actress Julianne Hough thought it would be funny to dress in black face for a Halloween Party to look like the black female character Crazy Eyes in the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.”

Hough almost certainly would never dream of dressing up as a Holocaust victim or Hasidic Jew but painting her face to look like a black person seemed to make perfect sense. For those who think this is much ado about nothing, a history lesson is in order. During the 19th century, white actors began painting their faces black with big red lips to perform caricatures of blacks as lackadaisical coons and darkies.

    I agree with Crystal

  2. While I understand the overall point being made here, the blacks of today breathe fresh life into these stereotypes. With all of the Madea films, hood movies(Friday,et al), then of course how blacks from the hood engage in the criminal culture, the outrage should be directed at these folks who make the music, the movies, and of course the white liberals who promote such filth. I’m not saying that it’s okay in any way, but if blacks in the entertainment industry don’t attempt to correct this buffoonery, then it’s pointless getting mad at people like this white girl Julianne Hough.
