Actors in blackface makeup are used during coverage of the World Cup. The broadcasting company says it's just a harmless spoof, but commentators say Mexico as a whole is in denial about racism.
Reporting from Mexico City
Every morning during television coverage of the World Cup, on the Mexican equivalent of the "Today" show, co-hosts chat, trade barbs and yuck it up. Behind them, actors in blackface makeup, dressed in fake animal skins and wild "Afro" wigs, gyrate, wave spears and pretend to represent a cartoonish version of South Africa.
Yes, in the 21st century, blackface characters on a major television network.

Considering that all the Mexican leadership is pure Castallan Spanish while all the Mexican illegal immigrants are Mestizos you could call this forced migration “ethnic cleansing”, which the Mex leadership is not above.
Funny how you never hear the open borders crowd talk about this.
No photos, no comment.
Liberals always bitch.
wow THAT is real racism
yet 0dumbo lets that pig Calderon call us racists because we don’t want illegals>
I am certain that W is behind this. It’s got to be his fault.
They hate us. Mexico and it’s citizens see the USA as something to exploit and change into the mess they so love, not be a part of. Instead of celebrating our ‘melting pot’, they have disdain for any of us not ‘as pure’ as they.
Miguel Perez, President of Cal-State Northridges MEChA chapter said, The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power.
These people are lecturing us about racism. :)
Oh lookie, liberals doing what they do best, sowing seeds of discontent among races. Shocked! /s
If there are 100 black families living in Mexico City, I would be amazed. Blacks are not welcome in the many upscale men’s watering holes found in downtown Mexico City.
It is rarely mentioned that there are practically no blacks in Argentina and that the general dislike that Argentina and Paraguay have for Brazil is racially tinged. Or that blacks are not tolerated in parts of Parana and Rio Grando do Sul states in Brazil itself. Indeed, racism is alive and thriving in Latin America.
How can this be true? Only US whites can be racists.
This can’t be true — diversity is supposedly our strength. I guess that we should open up our borders a little wider.
Impossible. Only white Americans are racists. (s)
Mexico is pretty much like Apartheid-era South Africa, a small European minority controlling everything.
Hehehehe. I found the comments interesting in the link provided. Anyways nothing about this is new to me. The msm has been covering it up for years as it does not fit their profile. As said above it is all Whitey’s fault according to the msm.
