I am sure the entire world has already heard about,
and seen, the picture of the governor of Virginia wearing
blackface when he was a student in med school. When
explaining his actions to reporters, he said he did not
believe it was him in the picture. But he did admit
to wearing blackface at a costume party in an effort
to look like Michael Jackson. According to the governor,
who is white, he only used a little bit of shoe polish
to do the trick. And then only just below his eyes so
as not to make himself look like a full-fledged black
Why it took him three whole days to decide the person
wearing blackface in the yearbook was not him but somebody
else remains a mystery. And only the person who wore the
klansman costume knows who that was.
Assuming the governor was telling the truth, the man
who was not wearing blackface in the picture must have
So why is everybody so upset? The governor said he
was sorry. And promised not to do it again.
There are a few holes in his story.
First of all, only the truly stupid would use shoe
polish as blackface. Even if they had the right shade
of black shoe polish it would not work. Don't believe
me? Grab some shoe polish and wipe it on your face.
No need to shine and buff. Just let it dry, and then
be careful you do not touch your face before it does.
Then try to wipe it off. And hope you do not have
to go back to work (or anywhere else in public) for
at least a week.
Black folk know how to make blackface. But since
they have their own natural face, they have no need
to apply artificial coloring. But they do have to
apply whiteface if they want to be white.
How to make whiteface -
Mix some non-toxic lotion with a little non-nano zinc
oxide. Or buy some organic diaper rash cream that has
non-nano zinc oxide. Apply on face, then let dry.
