"blackface" backlash - an over-reaction? Or a long overdue one?|
They were actually part of a whole family cosplay, but really my post is less about them and what they did or their intent than the larger discussion/topic.
I apologize for diverting from the main topic of the post. I believe that having rules without knowing the reason behind them can be deeply damaging, a house built upon a shifting foundation. What you have said is important, and FWIW I believe it to be well-spoken and wise.
But while I'm off-topic, the thing that makes me cringe here is the, well, sense of ownership of a POC's face and color by a group of white people. It just... wow.
