    I used to play Kurtis Blow tunes..how come every white person owes every single black people something and why does a person who wears make up have to pay with violence or some type of silly punishment?..so make the white people pay and maybe you can get rid of all of them ?

    Blackface in 1980? Only idiots care. I don't hear anybody complain about Robert Downey Jr or Jimmy Kimmel doing it way more recently.

  9. Black Sheep February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Original chocolate face

  19. Niko February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

  20. Che Cardona February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Don't forget the one with whoopie Goldberg and Ted Danson where he wore a black face and she was next to him smiling about it but I guess politicians like to use it when they feel it's necessary

  21. caziontherise February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Yall stop doing blackface. Lets fire for something else like sexual assault. Take a donation is pretty good.

  22. Peter John February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Thought that sensitive and mindless behavior went out with Al Jolson (1886 – 1950)., “Mammy”… Even if it cloaks it’s as..😐 entertainment.?

  23. malcolm layton February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Forgive why don't they try not doing it in the first place then there wouldn't be a need for forgiveness Humans always coming up with a excuse for the lack of self discipline insecurity issues ect ect the devil made me do it all of that BS just stop it weak minded people project negative energy in the atmosphere to make themselves feel somehow Superior to other to make themselves feel good about themselves that's a form of insecurity when you r secure in Who You Are there's no need to put down others far who they are period.

  24. jokerwildz LAZER KITTENS February 12, 2019 at 4:34 am

    Stop making excuses for them. Wearing black face in the 80”s is just plain racist. The civil rights movement wasn’t that long ago if the dude was in high school during the 80”s I mean come on now.
