Halloween is five weeks away, and it’s time to remind you white peeps early to just say no to blackface. Doing so is NOT ‘cool, hip, or edgy’ it’s straight up racist.
So spare yourself the easily avoidable drama and find characters and people from your own culture to emulate this October 31. My culture and my people are not costumes for you to put on for your amusement.
But I’m willing to bet some arrogant vanillacentric privileged fool will ignore this advice and find themselves in a media caca storm for doing exactly what I’m warning them not to do.
So word to the wise, just say NO to blackface.
