I know that the whole concept came from egypt, Jesus Christ! You are like those People that immediately will grab a gun and run behind someone only because they used the wrong type of cereal for breakfast and wasn't perfect enough in your eyes because of that.
Alone the fact that you guys are blaming a 5 years old Girl for rasism only because she dressed up as her favorite Cartoon character cosplaying and her mother approved shows how tied up and how ready you are to immediately get offended by anything around you.
Calling me ignorant for not knowing something that happen in america is full of ignorance itself for thinking that everyone in this world has to know everything about the USA historical or not.
So to summarize all that I "apologize" for being born and raised in europe and for not watching the said movies to know who or what blackface is.
Just out of curiosity, are you calling the black tribes in africa "whiteface" when they paint their whole face White to symbolize something or is it just "paint" in that case?
Asking because I'm pretty sure that for lacey and her daugther it was just paint to symbolize a Cartoon character and nothing else.
Should lacey indeed had posted racistic slurs of some short to Support your "blackface" opinion because of this then I'll take it all back and Support your opinion because I'm against rasism myself.
As long as she didn't however it is still only a 5 years old having fun with her favorite character in my eyes and it has nothing to do with ignorance but rather with the fact that some of you are hypersensitive and aggro on everything that might look racistic overexaggerating.
Then why in the *Censored* would you say Arab? And that's a stupid analogy.
Point out where anyone blamed the girl for being racist. Point out where anyone even suggested the girl could be racist. Her mom is the one being criticized for being tone deaf, and then following it up with a stupid response. Do you not understand why blackface is frowned upon?
I never mentioned America, I was talking about blackface, which can occur anywhere. You're still ignorant because even if you didn't know it, you could still research it instead of saying people are easily offended. Again, learn the history of blackface and why it's considered offensive. You don't need to watch movies, there's a magical thing known as the internet. Jeez.
And why do the black tribes in Africa paint their faces white? Are they trying to imitate white men? What's the purpose of doing that?
You obviously didn't care to read my other Posts anymore because it was easier to respond to that one.
Already wrote that I missunderstood the whole "Blackface" thing because at first I thought you were talking about a Person or character that was named like that instead of the whole painting your face black for whatever reason. That's why I was saying from the start that she portrays clawdeen and not blackface to even start with.
Funny you blaming me for not immediately recognizing something but then you are even asking WHY some or most african tribes are painting their faces White (or a other Color for that matter)?
It's mostly symbolic for status within the tribe, age differences, ceremonial, war, hunt among other things.
Fact is, there are Brown wolfs in nature and many People portraying such characters in Brown Color in Cartoons, movies, series, games. It has nothing to do with rasicm nor with trying to be offensive to anyone.
That's why I said that People are overexxagerating when it comes to this.
Sometimes a wolf is just a wolf you know? There is no reason to make something else out of it. Only because we can see offensivness in everything around us it doesn't mean that we have to or that it is a healthy way of living to do so.
And some people can find some forms of comedy disrespectful and insensitive.
And stop making excuses for the shit, "oh they're tan, so they dont have to paint their face." The girl in the midde is caucasian and doesnt look to have a tan at all, yet she managed to be Clawdeen without putting black or brown paint on her face. I'll show you motr examples of caucasian girls, as Clawdeen without painting their faces black or brown. Your opinions are idiotic.
And I clearly proved the character is implied and inspired as and by African American's. And her skin color wasn't the only reason given as to why shes implied how she is. Get outta here.
It's not a excuse at all. All 3 Girls have a tan so they can portray the character better and more original and all 3 seem to be caucasian aswell. So what?
BTW: The top Girl on the Picture doesn't portray clawdeen she goes for a other character.
Thanks for calling my opinions idiotic, I guess everyone that doesn't agree with your "there is only black or White in this world and no Grey lines in between" attitude, is automatically wrong in your opinion.
The Problem here is not racism, it's your mindset. You want to see racism into everything so you rather looking for a reason to call something racistic no matter how many proofs there are that you are wrong.
You didn't proved anything btw cause there is no official proof that clawdeen is supposed to be african-american.
She is just a wolf! Here you have one:
Can't wait to see your rants around here when the new mutants movie comes out cause wolfsbane is unfortunately casted as a White Girl with red hair instead of Brown skinned actress.
Find it stupid myself since she was a Brown Girl in the comics and I dislike it when they are doing such things but it is what it is.
On the opposite: In the reboot of the fantastic four the torch wasn't white anymore and the father of him and susan wasn't white either (which I also found stupid and a unneeded change).
These are examples on which we could had felt offended calling it racism only because they changed the color of a comic character but do we have to really? I think not.
