For me this is not offensive. I always found it ridiculous when black people got offended at white people painting their faces black to portray a black character.

But I find hypocritical the fact that black people are not getting offended when the roles are reversed.

This is the problem with these people, they only cry racism when it is done to them but when their people do it to another person, they ignore it.

Reverse racism doesn't exist, it is called RACISM when black people discriminate on white people and vice-versa or when anyone discriminates someone based on their race.





Alright, I agree. I take back my statement.

Now there's an example of being a drama queen.

All depends on the intentions of the individual in either case. I don't know of the intentions in this case, but they are likely not malevolent and so I am unable to provide fucks.

We had this Tunnel of Oppression event yesterday.
I asked one of my co-workers who went inside the event what was it all about.
He said it's about Black people.
I'm like, "that's it? Nothing else?"
Then, he said, "Oni, you're black. You should go too."
I'm like, "I'm not black."

I did not feel like going in the event anyway. I just started my shift. I had to work first.
