University Of Southern Mississippi Students On Probation After Blackface Incident

University Of Southern Mississippi Students On Probation After Blackface Incident

Commented Nov 16, 2011 at 16:08:12 in College

“It is the year 2011. All of you should be ashamed. I think everyone needs to love and be sensitive to different cultures, etc. Educate yourselves. I understand that "blackface" has bad historical meaning but I really do not think that these girls even knew that or were intending anything negative. I believe it is more important to worry about crime, drugs, pollution, animal, child, and elderly abuse, education, and providing jobs for people, etc; not what people are dressing up in for a 1980's theme party. Whoopi Goldberg dressed up as Queen Elizabeth for the Oscars and is totally outraged that these girls are on probation. I honestly do not think that these girls intended to offend anyone, they were just going with the 1980's theme and paying homage to one of the best American TV families in history (as show that I grew up on and loved). Totally appropriate. I really do wish these issues did not exist just as much as I wish gay people could get married. I hate to think that in the year 2011 were are still just as ignorant as we were 50 years. By having hate towards anyone regarding this situation we are only continuing to feed this ignorance. Love and Let love.”

“I couldn't agree with you more.”
