Scott's Tip Of The Day: Blackface is socially unacceptable. It is not funny. It is funny to watch the backlash when people in the public arena use blackface, though. Way to go Cowboys' cheerleader.
Whiteface? Socially acceptable? Maybe. Funny? No. Sorry Wayans Brothers. Movies where black men dress up as women are not funny. Just because you dress up as women who happen to be white, that doesn't make it funny.
I have a dream. A dream that one day men will dress as men and women will dress as women. A dream that black people will not use whiteface and white people will not use blackface. A dream where I'm naked in a shopping mall and can't find anywhere to hide. Oh. Er. That's another dream.....but you, uh..... get my point.
