    Stupid judge should have taken intent into consideration. The guy appears to be sincere in his intent to just do a skit. I doubt his audience was laughing at the woman, they were laughing at his silly act.

    Reading the story, the guy knew he was being a prick to upset the woman, imo.

    This is the sort of stuff we used to have on tv when I was a kid. Probably hardwired into a few generations already.

    So wait a minute.

    You have a bunch of white guys pretending to be black, dancing to Latin music with their rainbow gay sombreros?

    "He said: 'I didn’t realise it was racist'."

    Says it all, racism has been so well pimped that the world's most "civilised" are terrified of it, everyone's at risk of offending others each time they say or publish anything, lives and careers are compromised since nobody actually knows what this subjective term means anymore so it's left to snowflakes seeking offence and a weak establishment determined to shame itself by 'protecting' their sensibilities; and with that short sentence he accepts as fact that what he did deserves a criminal record.

    Signs of a society that's so firmly politically correct it will fight to embrace it all the way to the dogs.

    And the motivator for the gaining popularity of the anti PC political sentiment.

    They are the coolest looking cats. The Siberian is similar.

    I put shredded coon on my pizza for that extra bit of tang.

    I don't think he got fired for wearing blackface , I think he got fired because he did not know it might be offensive to some.

    You'll have to rename all them, take the prefixes off and suffix them with "Of Colour"

    So to sum up:

    A white man dressed up as a black man to sing a song about a southern slave stereotype to a black woman, and he's claiming there was nothing racist about it.

    Oooooo Kkkkkkk

    That's not what he's claiming.
    He's claiming ignorance that it was racist. Not the same thing.

    Ah yes, the old "I didn't know" defence.

    Always works well.

    this guy is full of shit.

    of course he knew it was racist....he just didn't care, because he and his white friends thought it was funny....and he assumed his white privilege would let him skate on any consequences.

    Ray, you missed the opportunity to rave on cultural appropriation, although us whities could take you on for wearing trousers...

    Does this mean that if a "Person of Colour" applies skin lightener/talc etc to their face. I can report them for doing a "whiteface" and being racist?

    Or does racism only work one way?

    ^ it was only a matter of time before a bigoted, ignorant, old white guy clumsily began complaining about reverse racism.
