To be honest, as a Black person myself, I find it to be offensive and inappropriate. However, I am not going to raise a tizzy over it. What I hate is the fact that people dredge up misdeeds from 30 - 40 years ago and make a federal case over it (such as the Virginia governor, whose college yearbook illustrated white students in blackface). Honestly, he should have kept his mouth shut about it. When he started talking about dressing like Michael Jackson for a contest, I was like 'Where the hell is this moron's PR representative?! LOL

The only personal experience I have had with this was about 50 years ago when I sang in a Mistral Show our Barbershop Chorus put on and our director (who is still an amazing performer) sang Ak Jolson's Mammy in blackface (on one knee) and the mixed race audience gave him a standing ovation that lasted several minutes. I think the society of today is missing out on a lot.

There are some eye-opening responses to "Why is blackface offensive?" at https://www.quora.com/Why-is-blackface-offensive

Sometimes we need another perspective. 

That was certainly interesting. Thanks for the viewpoint you presented.

I hope that we can all stop talking hate, race, and color, and just come together in peace...

We are all human.  Why is living in love and peace so much to ask? The only race is the human race.

Why is it people are not offended or outraged by the demonstrators who go around covering their faces with black masks, and doing bad things in open sight, that too is very offensive in my eyes...think about that...
