Default Another blackface scandal

Where will it all end?

Quote:
Dinah Mulholland, the Labour candidate for Ceredigion in the June general election, said on Facebook: “Utterly horrified to see this from Aberaeron carnival. How on earth could this have been considered acceptable, or even legal, by the carnival organisers?”

Mulholland called for an explanation from the carnival organisers and for all local politicians to condemn the float.

Can someone explain to me in gender neutral, beige language what is wrong with black face? It's just a bittova a laugh, eh? Nobody batted an eyelid when Eddie Murphy did whiteface? Granted, I raised an eyebrow when Michael Jackson did it but I think that was understandable.

Lots of people nowadays are so sensitive and like to moan about trivial things they find offensive. There was an old saying about blackening your arse and going mad I suppose the snowflakes would be outraged if they ever hear it.
