OK now I gar-on-fucking-tee ya this one is from the Lone Star State! Could you see this in California? Canada, London, South Efrica? Hell, they haven’t even pulled shit like this in Mississippi for 50yrs! No Place Else But Texas!
mcowles: Your comment and the subsequent confusion/comments that followed was awesome. I seriously got the belly laughs over this. The kids think Ive gone crazy. Im gonna hit refresh and see if its still going.
A Caucasian painted as a black man. With gold teeth and chains. Wow. And she’s a “white devil” – and talks like one too. Massive costume fail. Perhaps these two should be sent to a “sensitivity camp”. And beaten.
I’m white and I was Mr T for halloween last year. It wasn’t racist… I just ran around telling people to “Eat cho greens”, “Brush yo teeth” and “Shut up foo”. Maybe his friends should have told him that black people are not literally black since he hasn’t seen another race before. (they’re kinda brown)
Maybe in USA or wherever most of you come from, that is seen as serious but in NZ we joke about racism all the time, it’s so pathetic it’s funny. Any black kid is called the token black kid and we always kill them first, it’s all in jest, so I just see them as kidding up there, not lame at all.
I could probably send in hundreds of casual racism jokes every day.
I guess it’s safe to say that people from Canada, the UK, Australia and South “Efrika” are OBVIOUSLY less stupid then those of us who live in Texas. I always thought it was kind of ridiculous that they all pay taxes to support a bunch of inbred German figureheads, but that may just be me. I “gar-on-fucking-tee ya” some people would classify that as lame like yourself!
@ jacqikill #67
Good call! I’ll toast to that! Shiner is delicious!
I just can’t get past this guy’s mouth. Looks like his teeth have all been punched out and randomly jammed back into his head. And WTF is he doing with his lips? I feel strangely violated just looking at this ugly bastard. Though I’m sure he’s much uglier without the pathetic “costume”.
Correct me if I’m off-base, but are you saying that South Africa is governed by a bunch of inbred German figureheads? If so, when was the last time you updated your knowledge of world events…30 years ago?
And what do German figureheads have to do with Australia?
Once again, more politically correct bullshit. It blows my mind how one white person being racist is a travesty but black people are allowed to be entirely and completely racist and there’s supposedly nothing wrong with it.
Comments #3 and #59 slay me. Also to the above (83): what year are you living in? This is one of those things that is absolutely and undeniably racist. Why don’t you google the societal ramifications and interpretations of white people in ‘blackface’ and then get back to me.
Oh, and #78, Constantine? The reason why black people are “allowed” to be “racist” as you so charmingly put it, is because they are not the privileged group. Prejudice is never a virtue, but I think we can agree that racism from whites against blacks is a MUCH bigger problem in society than black-against-white hatred.
This was posted on Lamebook for a reason. It’s lame. If you disagree, take it up privately with a mod.
I’m well aware of what black face is. But if you’re going as a rapper for Halloween there’s really no other way to do it. The guy dressed in bling and wore rapper slag. He didn’t go as Kunta Kinte. Big deal.
So if I put on gold teeth, a big ole gold chain, baggy clothes and crooked hat nobody would know who I am? Mental note to me: “Black face is not offensive if it helps people know who I am or enhances a rapper costume.” Wow its suddenly so clear. Cause there were never any white rappers ever. Its clearly a black guy thing. Would it be overkill if I carry a watermelon or a bucket of chicken? Maybe a afro with a pic in it? I need to know this so I dont look racist just enhance my costume.
I do not find the guy dressing up as a black man offensive. What is offensive is that big-breasted girl saying it would be “awkward” kissing him dressed like that.
Where does it say they are in the South?! They could be anywhere in the world!
@Iron: On behalf of everyone that lives in the South, we are glad you’re enjoying California, seeing as how you would “slit your wrists” if you had to move here. Are you THAT FUCKING STUPID that you believe all Southerners are racist? I guess so. Stay in California- you wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the South.
All the thin-skinned, righteous contributors to this thread falling over each other to prove to the world that they’re not racists by crying RACISM! at every half-baked opportunity, don’t even realise how bloody judgmental they themselves are.
So its cool then? Alrighty. Im glad I got clearance on that the next time I want to be a asshole. Its not even funny or clever. Its just fucking lazy. Its also the comments like about being a nice white couple that show just how far up their own ass each of them are. Also blackface hasnt never been funny. It wasnt needed to improve or enhance his costume. It wasnt shocking and if I was at that party and given sufficent alcohol Id kick him in the balls and beat the shit out of his skank. Its not only a issue of race its a issue of some shithead thinking this was o.k. If this comes off as me trying to deflect my own racism then so be it. Cause Im definitely not perfect. And who on this planet isnt a little racist? If done right a play on or a joke about racism is godamn funny. Richard Pryor/Dave Chappelle? Absolutely hilarious/brilliant.
How about George Carlin then? Maybe I forgot Black people can only make fun of Black people. You miss the point. They both made jokes about race and they were funny. This asshat not so much. BTW Im a mean drunk baby. I may not win but Im gonna have a go. Id smack her around bc Im a woman. And if I threw a party there would be a better class of people there then this trash. But no clowns. I hate clowns. So I guess you can’t come either.
ZZZ. Blacks aren’t privileged? President ring any bells? They are normal people right? So normal treatment, right? So, we can poke fun at them, because they poke fun at us. Not racist, just having fun.
Silly overly liberal liberals, we gave them human rights, not endangered species status
I hate racial debates. Here in South Africa you don’t dare talk to the older black people that way (they still have the apartheid mindset.) And the young ones – we get along fine, but their elders (who are now running our beautiful country) are handing it over to illegal immigrants, thieves and ungrateful, uneducated swines. And they are turning us into them 30 years ago.
I really wasn’t kidding when I said I hate racism. South Africa has been ruined by it, and I can tell you now, it’s not a pretty site.
@Svetlana: That’s kind of strange to think about. Africa seems so exotic and cool. You know Toto and all. Though I will let you know I have studied the Boer Wars quite a bit.
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you get arrested and tortured. If you cross ours you get a drivers license, a place to live, a job, free medical care and an education for your kids. Oh, and you don’t have to pay taxes.
@Insane: Sadly it may. However, I happen to have a very old friend who went there, legally, and stayed so I doubt there is a great threat.
It was, it originated in my state as we have a “son of the state” being held and tortured as we speak by Iran. He “hiked” over the border by “accident”. We also deal with the “wetbacks” here in large numbers as we are one of the leadiing states in wellfare benefits.
#85 whites are the privileged ones? Come on Vapsody! It’s comments like that that make people pause and wonder if YOU are not just a little racist. The world has changed since your family owned the plantation. If you weren’t aware, black people are doing just fine. We don’t need you to defend us, we can defend ourselves. Thanks.
May the couple in the photo live happily ever after in their mobile home with their six kids living off thier welfare check.
@Maralie How do you know this is the south or even the United Sates?
Btw I’m from the north but I live in the south and there are stupid and racist people every where. At least in the south EMTs don’t walk away from a dying pregnant women like they did in NY. Incidentally that woman was black and, in case you’re too stupid to keep up on current events, both the woman and her baby are dead now. Yeah, people up north are so much more awesome.
On behalf of those of who live in the south… GO FUCK YOURSELF! We’re glad you don’t live here.
People need to relax. There are Jenny’s and their Jackasses out there who are more twisted. I am more disturbed by the face he’s making. If the ‘blacks’ think ‘whites’ are racist, you should meet Indians. In fact, marry an Indian girl and see how fast her family:
1. Puts a bounty on her head
2. Prays the child is at least brown, if not ‘fair’
3. Breaks all ties and refuses to reconcile
@mashab why did you attempt to put the words blacks and whites in quotes? complete wrong use aaaand you freakin put apostrophes instead……DUMB and you should meet indians?………..DUMB AND RACIST. People like you should no longer be allowed to speak. All the racists comments along with this picture…. epic fail. This world is a sad place
i’ve read most of these comments and i have several things to say…for starters i’m African American and I was born and raised in Texas 1) this picture IS lame for TWO reasons A. the man is painted black to complement his clothing and B. the comment the woman made 2)All southerners are not racist and many people all over the country ARE racist therefore you should not assume they are from Texas or any southern state 3) it is wrong that this man is painted black, not only because he looks a hot mess because NOT all rappers are African American and the one’s who are are definitely not that shade, he was obviously trying to be funny by accentuating the dark shade of his skin color which is bad 4) yes some African Americans can be considered racist but to be honest EVERY race has some animosity for another race and favors their own in some way…i dont really feel like talking about more i think i’ve said enough…oh and i agree, remind me to NOT put new zealand on my traveling list
See the TEETH on that guy? She’s way too hot to be with him. He looks like he pulled his trailer to the party with his mouth. “Petey” probably ain’t in no danger of getting lynched, but he’s probably hung. I have no other logical way to interpret this picture.
This is only racist because of their comments at the end, specifically about being ‘a normal white couple’ next year, lol. The actual “costume” is just playing up stereotypes, which is not racist in itself. There’s a difference between bringing up stereotypes and being a racist. Some people need to learn the difference…
AS a black person this is highly offensive…that’s just like me painting myself ghost white and being a “cracker” for halloween. I don’t use that language normally but I had to get back @ Zappo

wots rong wif dressin up as a nigga
And people think racism is out just bc Obama is pres…just read stupid comments like this and you’ll know it’s not gone and never will be just as long as ignorant white ppl exist. (not saying all whites are ignorant, I’m ONLY referring to the ignorant ones)
I really have no interest in reading all of the comments etc etc but really he could be going as 50 cent or some one legitimately famous … and the halloween facepaint doesn’t stay well and gets all over everything which is probably why she didn’t kiss him just sayin.
