re: Ro vs. Blackface Show more
The latest blackface 'scandal' as people seem to be calling it is another stark reminder that no, ignoring racism will not make it go away. If anything, it enables it to continue.
Yes, I know we like to make excuses for white people based on age, ignorance, etc, but the reality is that racism is still very much an accepted part of white American culture. That hate is just as American as baseball.
Refusing to deal with that reality is why it keeps coming back.
