honestly people are overreacting. if a black person was a white person for halloween, i would be totally ok with them making their skin lighter for it. because thats literally how the costume works. like the person you're dressing up has dark skin, so if you're gonna look like it, might as well actually look like it
If you don't understand how blackface is offensive and racist and whiteface just simply isn't and won't ever be, maybe you should stay off the internet for a while and maybe do some research, maybe even work on your people skills.
anything can mean anything you want it to mean. i dont live in the same shitty, negative society as you. i didnt even know what it meant until you assholes accused me of it. it sucks in your reality..white people aren’t allowed to praise african american’s by being them on halloween. you all are sooo racist. soo stupid.
if you don't understand why your blackface costume is bad and why whiteface is not a reversal of it then you need to sit down and think. just think. try thinking "what the fuck is wrong with me"
dude you and everyone else is fucked up, immature, stupid. i was my favorite singer for halloween. now everyone is calling me nasty & racist. it’s motherfucking face paint. it means whatever you want it to mean. stop being trapped in the shitty reality you chose where certain things can only mean negative shit. god damn lol.
Whiteface is a form of performance in which a person wears theatrical makeup in order to make themselves look like a white person, usually for comic purposes. The term is not a reversal of the more common form of performance known as blackface, in which performers use makeup in order to make themselves look like a black person, for comic purposes.
can someone please explain to me how ‘the term is not a reversal’? completely racist wiki page.
