How Low Can You Go: white people and their racist Halloween costumes 2013 edition

Okay, last one. Mainly, not solely, because I can let go of “creepy cracker” and back to “racist cracker”. Too much? Black.

United States Hypocrisy

As if “Dancing with the Stars” alumni and D-list celebrity Julianne Hough’s Halloween outfit – in which she painted her face brown in a failed attempt to make herself look like an African American character from the Netflix show “Orange is the New Black” – wasn’t enough buffoonery for one week, dozens of images of white people donning black make-up in an overtly racist manner have been popping up all over the web.

  1. crackpot says:

    You mean “creepy ass cracka”?

      When I say “whiteface” I mean it in the shallowest terms. No meaning but poking fun at the ones who think it funny to poke fun.

    • Laughs are free. I took creative permission to twist words. To keep it light. To forget about that episode on Tyra Banks where that sick boy was donned with whiteface, claiming to feel better getting uglied down. And I am not sure if whitening is not white-facing. MJ got so white that white kids nowadays think that he was one of them. Other than that… Yawn.

    • Yeah, vitiligo and all like that. Who would thought that a skin disease would cause recessive children.

    • LOL!!! My turn to laugh. Donkey shaking and all!

    • Donkey shaking….I think they call that twerking in the ill informed world.
