So Dave Chapelle, the Wayans Bros, etc. can do white face and no one cares but Jimmy Fallon does black face and the world is in a uproar. We have got to learn to stop getting so upset over every damn thing. I don't care what folks do it isn't affecting me. I will just keep it pushing. My boss could dress up in black face and shuck and jive. I got no damns to give. Stop being so sensitive about EVERYTHING.

A comedian doing a comedy skit in blackface: a non issue. Random white person doing blackface and it surfaces on social media: ISSUE. Cops murdering blacks because they believe they have the power to do so, because they are racist: MAJOR ISSUE!! Pick the fight that matters!

Of course he apologized because that's what they do. They intentionally (and without reservation) offend us, apologize, then get us to buy into whatever they're selling.

I have never watched his raggedy-ass show and never will.

black face isnt cool, but this isnt who our battle is against.

dont get distracted.

And this is one of many reasons I don't watch Saturday Night Live. They've been doing blackface skits for damn near 40 years. Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest did a skit mocking the Negro Baseball League players. And Crystal just looves playing old black men. Bitch.

I'd like to see Billy Crystal's jewish ass mock some Shyster Jews, or pawn-shop owning Jews of yesteryear, or the Hasidics with all those damn strings on their undershirts. He has a full culture to play on, but instead he uses ours.

This is what they do when they can't be us with their jealous asses.

I'm not caping for none of these White people but almost every comedian is going to argue they're allowed a certain amount of creative license. Black people need to be more upset at Black male comedians who dress up as Black women just to denigrate them.

This doesn't require my outrage or backlash. Never watched his show and don't care about him or any of these people who randomly decide to dig up some two decades old joke. I'll save my outrage for when we're being shot while unarmed, or being gunned down while innocently walking home, or being hunted and then murdered in the streets like we're dogs just because we were jogging.

To: 7:49 AM

You post reads like a white person with an ax to grind, who is impersonating a black person. You want Jimmy Fallon to be cancelled and black people don't give a fuck because men are being murdered by the police. Jimmy did something dumb 20 years ago but do most of us believe he's racist? Probably not. So take that shit up with Human Resources but stop trying to get black people to finish Jimmy for you. Do your own dirty work.

@7:49 you're clearly white andwewil continue to do what we feel. Instead of instigating you should hope you make it thru the fire.

@9:00 house nigger yes they can do white face, yes it was funny, and no we dont care.

Fuck these whypepo

@7:52 if you're saying We, WE cant multitask I'm gonna need you to sit down and stop with the dumb shit. We're some god damn superheroes and can do a lot when we want to.

White people wanna be black so bad until it's time to be treated like a black person.

The cancellation culture is spineless. Black people talk a lot of shit and don't back it. What happened to boycotting Gucci for that Sambo turtleneck? Nothing. We once yielded our power of influence for some meaningful change. Now we have celebrity ambassadors and faux outrage that amounts to talking shit on Twitter etc.

Rainy Dayz... nobody said WE or even you.... said ppl. I don't know who you talking bout We?

YT ppl's get out card is: I'm sorry or didn't know. In this day and age everybody knows what's offensive to other cultures, that why they do it.

Fuck a black face, he's a comedian and the shit was funny. A troglodyte police officer just murdered a black man by placing his knee on the back of his neck, despite the fact his nose was bleeding and he repeatedly said he, could not breath. He was murdered in full view of the public, who mind you outnumbered the 2 or 3 dusty ass cops, and all these worthless niggas could do was record the murder, and told the cops to let him up, nobody bum rushed those murderers, and placed them under citizens arrest. This will never end until we start retaliating, I'm sick to my stomach seeing this over and over again.

Leviticus chapter 24: verse 17 and he that killeth any man, shall surely be put to death. 19: If a man cause blemish to his neighbour, as he has done to him, the same shall be done to him. Y'all let them take you from the law and give you that doctored new testament where it tells you to turn the other cheek. The will only end when we start repaying them in kind. I am fucking tired of the wanton brutality of unarmed black citizens.
