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 adslike this one, eloquently titled Gaylord Afro Wig, Wet Look for Meninvite revelers to dress up in blackface.

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.
blackface is relativistic
it wouldnt be funny if they ever approached the speed of white
What are they thinking, this is really serious! It's not like they were just being anti semites, my gosh this is real racism!(cause it targets Blacks)
Oh, no! Imagine if they just ignored blacks entirely! Perish the thought!
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.

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

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. ;>}

Speedo es mi tio de Ciudad Juarez.

dont worry i (right) left that part out
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.
