No it's not and i'm black do that make me USA vs AUSTRALIAN, so i'm supposed push my history and be ashamed because i'm an american black and say oh well I don't want to seem like this is bashing australians.
I don't believe every australian find this okay, I believe some do find it's okay to crush this blackface history as a joke and tell blacks well it's just a joke move on.
I believe most people need to learn about culture history and any race people to understand their history what they had deal with hard times in their past history.
We need to be more aware and understanding, lack of understanding is what is making this topic more longer then it have to be.
Learn history before you make a bad choice
Like GM said, we know what it is now. A lot of people who know about blackface in Australia were offended by it, but the majority didn't and we weren't.
While I agree that it's always good to stay informed about other countries and cultures, sometimes it's impossible to know every little detail about every race in every country. What I can't stand is people saying "how could you not know this?!". Well, we didn't... and we're learning about it now. We don't need to be made to feel stupid about it, and we don't need other people's cultures to be forced onto us especially when they show little interest in trying to understand ours.
Great post butterflies.. you've been on point in this whole thread :clapping:
