"Digital Blackface"

Comment section never fails to entertain, as usual.

*edit*

Too good not to include alongside.

It's like 1984 - actually it's more insidious.

Also, she sounds SO posh I can hardly listen to her without wanting to punch her. She must've given Cokey an aneurism, to know how much he hates the upper classes.

I thought you would be linking to the BBC Pidgin page, which is gold.

There's a thread on here about that. I think it's one of HungGarTiger's.

Typical BBC racism, they assume nobody can understand the brown person.

i dunno about white people using black skinned emojis (that's just weird), but i never thought any of those gifs were racial... i just thought those were funny pics. hell, the michael jackson popcorn one is the most popular and he was literally in his inter-trans-racial phase at the time.

what about the NBA? blacks are consistently 75-80% of the players. when white people watch the NBA, is that black appropriation too?

according to knowyourmeme (which actually tracks meme usage computationally), the most popular memes don't have race (half of them aren't even human)...

* slender man
* doge
* forever alone
* lenny
* zerg rush
* trollface
* my little pony
* me gusta

of course comments are disabled... these idiots can't stand to have their brainshit stand among actual ideas and logic.

the best part is that they end the video with "what do you think?" and then disable the comments anyways.

clinical hysteria.

The guy denigrates he bros for "using black stuff as a crutch", but says you should interpret anything derogatory as racist (it it came with, for example, a negroid emoji).

For example. A post that says "Obama's an asshole" and has a black cross-eyed emoji, that would be racist. A post that says "Trump's an asshole" and a white, Trump-haired, cross-eyes emoji, oh that's not racist; that just looks like him.

What, you think all black people look alike? No, do you think all blonde people look alike? You must be racist!
