Hey, why are people starting to use black face again?? I've seen it a couple of times lately........Actually, three times; and as they say "three strikes and your out"!
Is it because America has a black President? So they want to try and degrade black people any chance they get?
Really shows you how much prejudice there still is in the world!
You know I wasn't going to say anything; but it really, really hurt me to see 'black face' used in the Saint movie.....I think it was St. Anthony??! Can't remember exactly. This Saint had an Ethiopian friend and I was really looking forward to the part when I would see his Ethiopian friend.......dear Lord, I was sooooooo frightened when they portrayed the Ethiopian as a man with 'black face'! Gosh is that what anyone would want their children to think 'black people' looked like??!! I mean it really scared me! I can imagine what it would do to a child....yuk!
I would like to say, having visited Ethiopia, that Ethiopians are some of the most handsome, beautiful people in the world!
I know people are forced to do things because of oppression, but I feel I should speak out against such demeaning acts as 'black face' actors! I would like to complain to whomever produced that movie, because I think it is evil to do such a thing and evil like a cancer spreads and spreads....
