this kid had absolutely nothing to do with that blackface, (not offensive in the first place) bullshit anyway. he painted his fucking face black to represent a black person, because white people have white skin, in order to look more like a black person, common sense would tell you that painting your face black would help to better represent that person. crazy huh?
the kid made no fucking mistake, he made the opposite of a mistake, he made a good choice, he did a better job representing the person, and had a better school project because of it. some fuck nut just decided to find a reason to get offended.
what i dont get is how the people who somehow find this shit racist in the first place arent labeled as racist themselves. if you really want to get into it, thinking that black people need some kind of special treatment because they are a minority, and should be exempt from any kind of mockery, representation, judgement, etc.. that is perfectly acceptable to other races, is more racist than the guy who has the balls to treat them just like he would anybody else. meaning not being scared to judge, make fun of, dress up like, etc..
and if it was a black person getting offended, well he needs to grow some balls and shut the fuck up. i dont care how you look at that, if you find a way to let something like that get to you that is 110% your fault, man up and take it, dont bitch about it and expect others to do something about a problem you have/created.
