    You can only shake your head in wonder...


    An animated cartoon. Well, just what color is your voice? privileged white harvard snooty or urban ghetto black slang?

    I can see the headlines now; famous white actor uses doctored DNA profile report to secure lucrative voice over role....

    No matter which part of the divide you are on, most would agree this is in bad taste ...

    US speedway owner under fire for advertising 'Bubba Rope' in wake of noose found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's stall

    A new look to remove racial stereotyping-12397102-3x2-xlarge-jpg

    Mike Fulp, the owner of the racetrack at Pine Hall, North Carolina, made a post on Facebook Marketplace earlier this week that was later removed.


    "Buy your Bubba Rope today for only $9.99 each, they come with a lifetime warranty and work great," the post said.

    But if we're always told 'we're all the same', 'there's no difference between us', and all the rest of the many soundbites we hear on a daily basis, if true then why the need to now have skin colour type as a qualifier to do a voice over on a cartoon? Does this not go against everything we are told?

    Its too late, the virus has reached critical mass. There are already reports of whole families sofa bound for days looking at sitcoms with fake laughter and moral PC threads woven through, fixed glazed expressions and dribbling, pausing only to consume a chicken ding.

    By that logic, there's naught wrong with black face for actors also. Do you think Blackface is ok?

    Scientifically, there is no such thing as race, it is an entire social construct, but exist it does.

    There is nothing wrong with actors 'blacking up', it depends on the context of the acting.

    By your logic, a person should only narrate a story if written by someone of the same skin colour. I mean, surely even a peacocking SJW such as yourself would find that ridiculous, and surely racist.
