I guess an explanation is required.

It is a costume of a sultan or king I assume based on the head gear. I am not offended by it. If others are, they are entitled to their feelings.

Edited to add.
I do not know a lot about black face actors from 100 years ago. My understanding is they played buffoons. The costume appears to be doing the opposite. A character of royalty, leadership and respect. Am I missing something?

I asked that very same question when I was younger.  I suggest you google "what is wrong with blackface?"
Then google Trudeau blackface and/or Ralph Northam blackface or Joy Behar blackface.

Or visit here:  https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/07/us/celebrities-in-blackface-list-trnd/index.html
It's CNN so it's true.

Maybe it's like dressing up as an indian for halloween at an Ivy League school?

Anyway, it was double entendre by Trump I found humorous.

G&T was at the NATO 70th anniversary in London. Acting the Primadonna and as usual. He was a bit upset when he thought some other leaders were taking the mickey, (taking 40mins to call a press conference when everyone was waiting for him) so flounced off home early. One would think he was running a relatively small property company. :rolleyes:

You have to hand it to him, he knows  how to lead and get good things done. Small company or Large Nation. Also calls it like he sees it no matter who. King or Milk Shame Man. 
 :cheesy: As you know he is not shy when it comes to expressing himself.
Ben, I am really getting worried about you. (now in serious mode) you really need to go and talk to a neutral type of person someone who may calm you down somewhat and give you an honest opinion. Probably the best thing is to show some of your friends a selection of your posts and ask, are these healthy? Personally (joking apart) I don't think they are. Sorry to be so blunt, but its time to take stock! :sad:

Otherwise, go sit in a dark corner and contemplate your life. Or more importantly your family.

Absolutely not, find someone who doesn't keep bees and doesn't use Beemaster, in other words, an independent arbiter. :smile:[/b][/i][/u]

Well just another example of typical leftest strategy, if you can?t defend from the opposing message, (Having no ground to stand on), attack the messenger, A sure sign of desperation.  Typical of the left.
Sorry Ben, could you please untangle your previous post? so I know what the hell it means :rolleyes:

Pretty obvious isn?t it?  Are you pretending to be stupid or for real ?  :cheesy:
As far as sitting in a dark corner and thinking about my family, my Dad died in June and my mother fell and broke her back two months.ago with a bone disease and is inoperable. So I do not need your advice for sitting in a dark corner and thinking of my family. Are you sick in the head? Or just another heartless lefty? Maybe this is why you are always speaking of pills and salt and the nite nite bed?
I am genuinely sorry for what has happened in your family recently, it must have put an almost unbearable strain on you. Still, you come back fighting, maybe that helps.
That being said I can only repeat what I said earlier it just seems a little OTT.
The comments are not from a stupid, sick in the head person more from someone who cares.
The pills and salt, if they need explaining, are the "pills" are hypothetical questions and the "Salt" is from the saying "take it with a pinch of salt" The night beds I hope are self-explanatory. I think iddee and I have an understanding he speaks gibberish and I try to understand it :wink: This sometimes requires a drop of pills and salt and even early bed. But it is all in humour. Not so it seems with you. But we can only agree to disagree. As to right or left in politics, treat it all like a game to have a laugh over, I do! :wink:
What's good for bees is usually good for mankind. Doesn't that mean sharing?

Anything can be, as long as you elect sane politicians who are not embarrassed about their hair" with apologies to SS

Surely the phrase "two-faced" as in the G&T context has nothing to do with being 'Blacked Up' more saying one thing to your face and something different behind your back. Probably everyone has some form with this. Probably G&T thought they were making fun of him. Something, that upsets him. Aw diddums :cheesy:

Thanks Cider, for the kind words.  I do enjoy debating you and correcting you when you are to far out  in left field. That is what friends are for... The problem is  I have seen few times that you have been in check. More like you are in fantasy land...  Hopefully some day you will see the era of your twisted thinking.  :cheesy: :shocked:   :grin:
For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Was it on CNN and Fox? It was everywhere! Every news channel every comedian. I thought it was funny as hell. The look on his face when the news person asked him about it looked like he was hit with a tomato. Then he flew home to an impeachment hearing where his buddy Ruddy broke the Ukranians window and blamed it on him.  You cant make this up.

Correction needed..........................................

I think iddee and I have an understanding. He speaks and I wish I was smart enough to understand it.

I get it, but not all of it. And I am not going to defend it. I am just not offended by it because I doubt there was sinister intent, just bad judgement.


You can be the morality police if you choose to. I choose not to.


Why is it okay for James Earl Jones to play King Jaffe Joffer in Coming to America? Is he respecting that African culture? I do not think so. Does his skin color or ancestry make it okay? He was born in Mississippi. Should only an African, born in Africa, play that character? Or is it disrespectful no matter who plays the part?


Where do the lines get drawn?


Context matters (to me).

Personally, I don't give a darnn, its all make-believe. Black or White, does it make a difference as long as they are convincing in the part?
