Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Hollywood screen legend Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey at a 2004 fundraising auction, playfully interacting with a white man dressed as an African native, complete with blackface makeup and a giant Afro wig.
Hanks most recently provided the narration for The Road Weve Traveled, a 17-minute-long campaign video meant to help President Barack Obama win re-election in November.
The fundraiser, held March 13, 2004 at St. Matthews Parish School in Pacific Palisades, Calif., featured Hanks and Frey as co-emcees. Children of both men attended the school. The events theme, Castaways, evoked memories of the 2000 film Cast Away, in which Hanks starred.

nope just saying I want fresh scandal not old scandal about the depraved
Hanks has been calling everyone/ mostly republicans a racist since then. This just shows his hypocrisy.
Of course. Smug, self-congratulatory progressivs are only ridiculing their inferiors: Backward, racist haters out in flyover.
You can say anything you want as long as you are a liberal. Look at Maher.
Exactly. Look how they went after Perry for some sign that was suppose to be on his property...
It’s always odd to deal with a conservative who doesn’t know what you and I know... Who buys into the MSM line? Amazing.
Have you seen this yet?
I have and have passed it on.
