The photo quickly went viral after being tweeted by Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson
One of the White teens who posted a picture dressed in blackface because she’s a “n***er” for Halloween, responded to criticism by saying that Black people need to stop worrying about her costume and start worrying about finding their fathers.
This incident caps two weeks of tasteless costumes.
As previously reported by NewsOne, actress and dancer Julianne Hough issued an apology after dressing in Blackface as the character “Crazy Eyes” from the hit Netflix series “Orange Is The New Black.”
The NBA’s Utah Jazz issued an apology yesterday for tweeting a picture of a White fan dressed as veteran player Karl Malone for Halloween.
A viral photo of a White teen dressed in blackface as a dead Trayvon Martin continues to make the rounds on social media.
On Halloween, callers to “NewsOne Now,” with Roland Martin weighed in on the trend. “I think it’s part of the white privilege that’s going around,” one caller said. Another chalked it up to backlash against the presidency of Barack Obama.
Whatever the case, these racist imitations of black people are completely outrageous.
After the uproar that was created because of the racist photo @dopebieber went on to tweet that she is famous in the black community.
She also asked on a tweet, “What would Rosa Parks think of you people in my mention?”
“Black people are so over dramatic”
@dopebieber friend @kinkystyles subsequently tweeted, who cares if you’re offended, the constitution doesn’t give a fuck about your feelings.
Both @dopebieber and @kinkystyles have received multiple death and rape threats via Twitter as the picture of them in Blackface continues to gain steam.
As for those who believe that all people are created equal and that racism is not alive, well here is proof that it is!
By the way, to view an in depth picture of how the enslavement of Blacks manifested into hatred of Black people I encourage you to go see the recent film Twelve Years A Slave in theaters NOW.
The fight is just as relevant today as it was then. Don’t ever be misled or think anything different.
Racism today is just in different form than during enslavement. It is concealed, jokingly misunderstood and apologetic.
But do not be mistaken that it is here and always will be, due to ignorance and hate.
