Here’s Toronto Maple Leaf Tyle Bozak in blackface.
You can inform him of his poor choices on twitter.
Uh do you guys not know what Michael Jackson’s original skin color was or
Do you not know what blackface is or…?
Of course. It’s nothing new. If he were making fun of a random black person, yes it’d be offensive, but he’s paying homage to MJ. MJ was black. If you can’t deal with that, well…I can’t say what I wanna say.
Micheal was black. Even with his medical problems and the whitening of his skin, he was a black man.
Not that it’s relevant, but it looks like Tyler is trying to capture the “Thriller era” of MJ’s music, and if you will do a simple google image search, Mike was not “white” during the Thriller era.
Nonetheless, MJ was black. This isn’t being racist, this is accurately depicting a black man.
Please stop your petty bitching and whining.
LMFAO are you being serious? “He’s accuratley depicting a black man”
Are you unaware of blackface?
While his intent was probably not to offend anybody, it’s the 2nd time he did it and he knows people consider this racist yet he decided to go ahead and do it anyway so….
Yes I am serious, and no I’m not a dunce who is unaware of a costume accessory.
If you, yourself, can say that he didn’t mean to offend anybody, why not just let it go?
Besides, no matter what he “knows people consider racist” he is a grown ass man and will make his own decision. If everyone was as sensitive as you people are, halloween costumes would be banned.
For the last time, he is going as Michael Jackson, who was a BLACK PERSON. He wasn’t dressing up as Michael and putting “blackface” on to piss all you whiney people off (which he still managed to do) he was dressing up as Michael Jackson, WHO WAS BLACK.
He didn’t do it to be racist, he did it to be Michael Jackson.
Again, stop your whining. You’re arguing something that is irrelevant.
honestly thats BEYOND being overly sensitive to the point of paranoia.
“righteous motherfuckers” like htat piss me off. and I’m speaking as a double minority member.
yes its good to be cautious but no need to walk around eggshells all the time and accuse everyone who doesnt follow your lead <_<
to dumb it down even further. MJ was darkskinned and wore red shirt/redpants in thriller. if you’re of any racial group except african-northamerican, how the hell will anyone know who you are if you’re just wearing a red shirt/red pants?
Purely just reblogging this this time for the amen gif. I love that gif,
