A woman with the derriere reminiscent of Sarah Baartman and a figure dressed as a monkey on stage. These were the main attractions in a sketch that was part of Beijing’s Lunar New Year TV gala. This JUST happened a few days ago and it’s 2018.
One of the worst types of racist stereotypes that for many years, has been forms of entertainment (minstrel shows) and obviously, it hasn’t gone away.
This isn’t the first time China has come under fire for expressing how it uh… feels about blacks (remember that little detergent snafu). But it isn’t China it’s the world and where so you think these derogatory images and ideas originated?
Right here in our country and you have to wonder when will it ever end.
Remember black face is NEVER okay.
