Did you even read my entire post? 1. I’m more than positive he doesn’t color his face brown to mock black people, but to play the part of someone that is black when he doesn’t have a black person available to do the acting. Blackface is racist mockery, and I don’t think Shane Dawson is doing that. I do think he should stop what he’s doing, but I seriously doubt what he’s doing is what you’re convinced it is.
If you’re so worried about kids being corrupted, then there are bigger problems at hand than one youtube channel.
Now try to stay on topic and not go off the rails.
So for SOME MYSTERIOUS REASON, Shane made his “addicted to twerking” video private in the past 24 hours….but here are a few choice gifs from the video where his mother was “addicted to trying to be black”. She spent her day smoking weed, twerking, talking about sex, not going to work and not feeding Shane because….LOL black people right?! Let’s just pretend that these stereotypes don’t exist outside of YouTube or have any consequences cause it’s just comedy! Please, tell me more about how Shane isn’t mocking black people? I’ll wait.
Stay on topic and don’t go off the rails? Mam. I’m grown. I’m not one of these children on Tumblr that you’re used to interacting with, so don’t try me and don’t tell me what I should and shouldn’t do with my time, my voice or my platform. If you wanna co-sign this racist bullshit that’s your business. But don’t you dare tell me what I should and shouldn’t be offended by.
You can miss me me with your racist apologizing bullshit and attempts to tone police me because you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. As a black woman these are the types of racist stereotypes that I have to deal with on a DAILY BASIS. These are the racist stereotypes that are used to justify our mistreatment and many times the MURDER of innocent black women and men. And when assholes like this perpetuate them for over 10 MILLION young children he says that this is truthful and ok. These children will absolutely grow into adults who believe that black people are less than and worthy of mistreatment because of these “jokes”.
Please don’t try me again because next time I won’t be as nice.
