    Indeed, "if I didn't like it, then nobody should see it" is the disgusting mentality of the current "woke" elitists.

    Well censorship and authoritarianism are inherently Orwellian. But given how "woke" ones hardly consider what the term actually means, majority of the world is "racist" according to them.

    Soooo... my American (and UK) friends, I have a question.

    If a white person dresses up as MLK or Nelson Mandela (including blackface) to honor them during the Hallowing or whatever masked revelry they have in UK... is that person a racist?

    Since when do people dress up on Halloween to honor personalities?

    It is quite weird to nowadays admire a fighter against racism (that person knows what blackface means, right? Tell him if he does not) and paint your face, really. Very weird. I might not say that this person is racist, but surely he is an idiot.

    At least the US you really can't ignore the cultural baggage of black face. Its just not a good ideal as white person.

    You don't generally set to honor somebody at Halloween. Google a Nixon or Bill Clinton mask - the intent is satirical in most versions.

    That being said if you wanted to be a historical person for real you could go here for example and get essentially a life like mask and even a Nelson Mandela one.

    But as a white guy born in Detroit and raised there and around SE Michigan - black face is more or less asking for an @ss kicking (and deserving it), unless you are at elite white people party in the Northern Suburbs or hang with the Michigan Militia. Its fundamentally insensitive and really there is no reason to do it.
