Halloween, White Folks, Black Face, and The Black Twitter Detective Agency

In America, it has been clearly established that blackface is something that’s at best in bad taste and at worst an act of unflinching racism. So, by participating in the act, people are admitting that they don’t care who they offend or what symbols of oppression they perpetuate. Which is why Halloween is one of the most frustrating holidays for black Americans.

When white liberals and people of color who are a little too understanding finally take "bad taste" off  the table, maybe the hard-core, overtly racist, mostly white idiots will be shamed into hiding their racism on Halloween just like they do at the office, church, or any other place that might wind up being diversely populated.

Or maybe not.

I swear, the majority of people don't begin to understand a thing until it hits their wallet.

So how do we make black face at Halloween hit the wallet? Oh wait. I know. Take photos. Find out where they work. Then you ask the company they work for what kind of business they run when they hire low-lifes like the person in the photo you just e-mailed them.

Black Twitter has proven this effective again and again and again.

So if you find yourself confronted by black face, smile, introduce yourself, and get their names when they introduce themselves back. Then get that cell phone camera out and feed the photo to the Black Twitter Investigating Agency.

Bing. Bang. Boom.  A percentage of the time there will be no more job.

This doesn't have to be 100% effective for the word to spread through the cowardly, anti-black racist population. I tend to think that a 25% effectiveness rate --no more than 33%-- will put the dumb@$$es off black face for good.

Give it a shot. If it doesn't work? We'll try something else next year.
