Unintended racists   4/1/2013

The only conclusion you can draw here is that PC fascists believe there’s something wrong or inferior in appearing to be black.

A DAD has apologised after his 10-year-old son “blacked up” to look like his footballing hero El Hadji Diouf.
The little boy, 10, even styled his hair into a white Mohican to copy the Leeds United forward and posted pictures on Twitter.
But he was accused of racism after wearing make-up in his bid to emulate the Senegalese striker.

    What I find interesting is that, on the basis of this story, it’s racist to dress up as a black person. If someone dresses up as a white person however it’s not considered racist. I mean, this seems to be about personal head space. Whty is dressing up as a black person considered an insult or racist? I don’t get it.

    Mr Slatts, I just realised after posting that was the point you were making. In future I should read the comment before hitting the link, rather than the other way around! Cheers mate, MB.
