VIRGINIA GOVERNOR NORTHAM WEARING BLACKFACE AND KIM KARDASHIAN WEARING WHITE FACE.
Friends let me be absolutely clear that Black Face is not appropriate ever. But that is not the way things were 50 years ago. I lived in the South and as wrong as it was among other more extreme things like Black lynchings those were different times. I wonder how many politicians and others in high places have lately been searching out any evidence of their Black Face or other similar acts for which there is no tolerance now.
But here is my question. What about Kim Kardashian wearing White Face and in fact white body makeup. What is the reality of that? The reality is that looking too black is going to potentially cut into her income. Being too Black will reduce her following. There are plenty of white folks that have no idea that she has any black genes. Photos that go public for Kim and her sisters are carefully screened on this issue.
And here is the bigger question, what is Kim saying to Black women and girls. One of the richest women in America tries to cover up her Black genes.
Let's go to the extreme. Should Kim Kardashian be boycotted because she is trying to "pass for White". (This is the old phrase from the old South)
I think Governor Northam should resign. But before he does I think the whole issue of Black Face and White Face needs to be thoroughly aired. Why is White Face OK for Kim Kardashian and Black Face is not OK for Governor Northam. Governor Northam in the past wore Black Face to send a message about the inferiority of Blacks. I am not sure what the Political message of Kim Kardashian is wearing White Face. I know the economic message is: More Money More Money. And why not ask about Michael Jackson?
Tell me why are Black's who are so enraged about Governor Northam are not enraged about Michael Jackson and Kim Kardashian distancing themselves from being Black???
Governor Northam should resign. And then we need a statement from Kim Kardashian and from the Black community about Michael Jackson with regards to Blacks posing as White.
Let's get this aspect of race out on the table with the other racial issues. Now is a great time. We have Senator Corey Booker and Senator Kamala Harris who are both Black. But my bet is they are not going to touch the Kim Kardashian White Face issue. And that refusal to comment is a reason they should neither one be running for President.
The Black Face issue is not so Black and White IS IT Folks???
