    I was watching NBC news and saw this. They were interviewing black people on the street too. They are like let the man do his goddamn job. Why are white people more offended by blackface than black people? Black people have more tolerance for it than liberal whites do. Yet liberal whites all over the country are calling for this guy to resign.

    It’s a tie overall, and African Americans believe he should stay in office by a 21-point margin.

    To non-leftists, dressing as a black person is just a costume. It doesn't mean you hate black people.

    Is there a specific kind of blackface thats offensive? Or I guess specifically what was Downey Jr. doing in Tropic Thunder? I dont really understand it.

    How much virtue signalling disappears without being vicariously offended?

    That's not "white liberals," that's white Virginians. White Virginians are majority Republican. You're surprised that Republicans want the Democratic governor to resign?

    Why do majority of blacks support him? What he did was unforgivably racist according to white liberals and black democratic leadership.

    As a rule of thumb, just don't do it. But, yes, dressing up like a black person semi-accurately is not as offensive as donning a minstrel show blackface costume (literal black skin, big red lips, cartoonish features).

    Blackface supplemented the argument that black people/slaves were nonhuman or at least lesser human. Blackface reached its apex while slavery was still in its heyday and used to not only present black people as toys for white people's entertainment, but literal objects upon which unspeakable cruelty could be freely inflicted: they could be depicted as wild animals to be fished for or hunted, they could be depicted as fox or cat-like vermin to be killed and tortured for fun (torturing cats has a more storied history than most know), etc. Minstrel shows, as abolitonism popularized, became mean-spirited propaganda shows in the South and North used to underpin slavery and mock how stupid those Northern liberals were for thinking black people were humans and deserved dignity. For this reason, the blackface industry was a source of humiliation for freed Northern blacks, who were seeing themselves mercilessly slandered and mocked and the brutal subjugation of people like them parodied and they could do nothing about it.

    While I enjoy seeing him twist in the wind and wish he would resign, it's not because he dressed in blackface. And truthfully I think the outrage over blackface is dishonest virtue signalling drama. Only the activists and the mentally ill really care. He should resign because he is for infantcide and probably other morally reprehensible policies.

    Black people are not a hive mind like Democrats want everyone, including black people, to think they are.

    The amount of actual leftists in this country are few, but they control social media and the news so get all the coverage and can spread their "outrage" over everything.

    The United States of America has more important issues and topics to worry about than a dude painting his face black 35 years ago.

    Once they realized they'd lose the state, the Democratic Party wasn't forcing anyone out.

    Now here comes the defense for it by the media on cue.

    The media will still demand resignation from a republican in the future though. Bc hypocrisy knows no bounds

    If killing a woman won’t get Democrat consitituents to turn on their elected official, it’s not surprising when shoe polish on med student’s face doesn’t turn them.

    It’s all faux outrage anyways. Politicians shouldn’t resign over ridiculous stuff like this. If the people don’t like his costume choices in the 80s, they can vote him out in the next elcection cycle.

    I agree. it's mostly white left faux outrage (soyboys and "feminists") . Probably racists trying to compensate--the racism of low expectations being the main culprit.

    they should actually talk to some black people every once in a while.
