Poll question: 'is it acceptable to darken one's skin to portray a person of another race for a Halloween costume?'. People respond to the question as written (or spoken, IDK which, but this is the wording). Author of this POS article and says that 1/3 of Americans are ok with Blackface. LOL! HayJenn eats it up and rushes to PH to share the fake news.

I guarantee that if the term BLACKFACE was in the question, the results would be very different.

Fair enough; it seems to be true that HayJenn substituted darkening ones skin with black-face in the title which isn't the worst of possible transgressions. Far from it.

Tsk, tsk, HayJenn.

Democrats get off scott free with racism. Look at the open anti Semitism.
'Scott free' is a racist expression, highly derogatory towards the Scottish people. It is just as bad as saying that someone was 'Welshing' on a bet. That's considered derogatory towards the Welsh people. Keep using bigoted language like that, and you're going to get my Irish up.

It is interesting he used a term that is inherently racist to demean racism.

I am no psychologist, but study of this sort of phenomena might well be worth a Ph.D.

The paper could even be titled: Projection.
