Black Chumph Pastor and Hillary in Blackface

Pastor Mark Burns tweet 082916

Starting with this when it blew up in the Lawn Jockey’s face –

“I am standing behind that picture,” Burns insisted. “We as African-Americans, we need to make Democrats fight for our vote. We need to make them fight for us. We need to make them do what they say they are gonna do, because we are just as valuable as every race in the great state of the United States of America.”

And now leading to this “apology”

Now – the theory that black folks could support Republicans died a painful death, for me at least with the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. Since that time Republicans have opposed every single law or governmental effort that in any way is beneficial to black folks in this country.

  1. They actively and support the murder of black men and boys in the streets by Police.
  2. They actively support death by incarceration of black women.
  3. They actively support blocking voting rights for black people.
  4. They actively support the inclusion and voice of white supremacists and racists in their Party.
  5. They actively support opposition to any effort to “level the playing field” for minorities, whether in access to credit, access to jobs, or the great white Republican bugaboo Affirmative Action.
  6. They actively support and seek to elect racists like Donald Trump.

So, I don’t know what “god” this POS believes in, but if he is hawking “Jesus”…

Its a lie.

German Soccer Team Dons Blackface to Fight Racism

Different country, different rules. An act which undoubtedly would be considered abhorrent in America, sends quite a different message in Germany.

German Soccer Team Posts Blackface Photo To Fight Racism

“We just wanted to show solidarity.”

A German soccer club took a stand against an apparently racist attack on two of its black players by going blackface in a team picture.

Deinster SV, an amateur team, posted the digitally altered photo on its Facebook page, along with a description of what happened to two Sudanese refugee teammates during an Easter celebration.

The coach said the attack took place last week in the team’s hometown of Deinster in northern Germany. He said one player, Emad Babiker, was physically assaulted and the other, Amar Alnoor, was verbally assaulted.

“Emad was thrown to the ground. They struck and kicked him. When I saw him on Sunday, he had a big swelling under his eye,” coach Sönke Kreibich told Jezt.de. Police were reportedly investigating the incident.

“Violence against refugees is pathetic,” the Facebook post reads. “Emad and Amar, you are one of us.”

The team’s starkly visual stand has been largely well-received and shared thousands of times. “This has nothing to do with racism. We just wanted to show solidarity,” team spokesman Frank Sandmann told NBC News.

The positive response might seem surprising, as blackface has long been used toperpetuate damaging stereotypes and make racist mockery of people of African descent. White people donning makeup to appear black is widely seen as offensive in the United States.

Germans, however, do not have the same view on blackface, generally speaking. It remains a popular part of the Karneval celebration, which has a tradition of costumes and mockery.

European soccer, too, has long been dogged by acts of racism, but the continent’s problem doesn’t end there. Amid fears of terrorism, the refugee crisis and rising right-wing nationalist movements, acts of racism have been on the rise in Europe, drawing international concern.

“Blackface” in Baltimore…

I don’t believe this guy tried this…

Blackface Show Benefitting Cops Indicted In Freddie Gray Death Nixed

The venue where a former Baltimore police officer said he planned to perform an Al Jolson routine in blackface says it won’t host the event.

Bobby Berger announced plans Wednesday to raise money for the six Baltimore officers indicted in the death of a black man who died of injuries he received while in police custody.

Later Wednesday, Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, where Berger intended to hold the event, said on its website that the fundraiser will not be hosted there.

Berger said 610 tickets had been sold for the Nov. 1 fundraiser at $45 each. The police union said Wednesday it doesn’t support the event and won’t accept money from it.

Berger says he doesn’t believe there is anything racist about his routine.

At least someone in the BPD figured it out beforehand!

The Racism In France – Redux

Fresh from whitening singer Beyonce for a magazine spread, it seems the French Fashion Industry (along with help from an American photographer who should have known better) Vogue Paris has decided to portray a blond-haired white girl in blackface on the cover of their October issue.

Not sure how the crotch shot is a fashion statement – but it appears French Vogue is not only expanding into the Racist Minstrel Rag market segment…

But also to pioneer the Anorexic Gynecological Gazette vertical.

With all the beautiful black models available - why pick an ugly white girl?

With all the beautiful black models available - why pick an ugly white girl?

Paris Vogue and its fiery editor Carine Roitfeld are at the centre of a race row after publishing pictures of a white model with her skin painted black. The photos of usually-blonde Dutch model Lara Stone did not raise eyebrows in France, it seems, but have provoked outrage among the usually unshockable fashionistas of New York.

The photo shoot was styled by the magazine’s long-time editor, Roitfeld, who – along with controversial photographer Steven Klein – has been denounced as “culturally insensitive” by US fashion site Jezebel.

“What Klein and Roitfeld should know is that painting white people black for the entertainment of other white people is offensive in ways that stand entirely apart from cultural context,” said Jezebel. The French anti-racism group SOS Racisme described the pictures as “tactless”.

Among the shoot’s other critics is Nana A Tamakloe, founder of Confidence Model Management, who said: “It’s horrible, there’s nothing else to describe it.” Shevelle Rhule, fashion and beauty editor at black women’s magazine Pride, commented: “It’s as if we’ve stepped back in time.”

Roitfeld has often been talked of in the past as a potential successor to Anna Wintour as editor of US Vogue. But the current row is unlikely to win her many supporters: a gimmick of this kind might be all right in Paris, but does not go down well in New York.

Speaking of tacky and tasteless – here is Rhianna posing topless for the cover of Italian Vogue, fresh from a beatdown by her boyfriend. Woman go out looking that bad, would make a less restrained man want to hit her upside the head… Makes you question whether Chris Brown beat the usually attractive Rhianna with an ugly stick to pose for this one.

This one is categorized under “Naaaaw” – because it’s hard to believe anyone in an executive position in the publication industry could be that f9889g stupid.
