Despite a growing backlash against it, blackface is still popular in Germany, where people insist they aren't racist

With Karneval ready to kick off later this month, many in Germany are picking out their festive getups and preparing to drink as much Hefeweizen as humanly possible. Unfortunately, some of the costume ads—like this one, eloquently titled “Gaylord Afro Wig, Wet Look for Men”—invite revelers to dress up in blackface.

Ruh Roh. Looks like the Germans are in for a tongue lashing from the naacp(issed off). That's racis'. I'm guessing they won't be kicked off campus though. ;>}

Black face is also popular in Japan. One of Japan’s elite Doo-wop groups with popular following, Rats&Stars, frequently has performed in black face. Sunday afternoon gatherings where Japanese young men gather to imitate 50s American rock-a-billy and young hood dancing also have people show up in black face.

Europe will always be racist in a gentle way until that basic feeling is unleashed as it was in the 1914’s in Bosnia and in the 1940’s in Germany, France and other European countries.

It’s just human nature — that’s why muslims want to be among muslims, Christians among Christians, Hutus among Hutus and conservatives among conservatives and Texans among Texans.

The only difference between the US and Europe is — they don’t have an NAACP.

Here's a Chinese toothpaste sold today; It may not only be sold in China. Pretty sure it's available in several Asian countries.

Will these whiners ever get it into their pea brains that ‘blackface’ just might be admiration, not bias?

In this case, only Wooster. Jeeves would never get his face all messy. In the hilarious episode, “Kidnapped!” The Drones club members collectively decide to take up the banjo, and accept a performance in blackface for an American kid’s birthday party. Only Wodehouse could pull off such a ridiculous story.

What if, in the US, it was found wearing a blackface lowered the rate of skin cancer?

I thought that bad kids in the US could no longer receive a lump of coal. At least if their parents, er I mean Santa Claus, is being environmentally gorrect. I mean correct. Maybe replaced by a stalk of rhubarb or something. ;>}

I notice the post with the add for the 1920s blackface kit has been removed by the mods even though it has been posted on FR many times before with no trouble.

Maybe it was just too blackface.
