GamingThread Twitch Punishes White Apex Legends Cosplayer Who Painted Her Face Black
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Excusing Blackface Over a Series of Posts; History of Dismissive Behavior
google blackface but long story short,usa has an history with white people making caricatures of black people by painting their faces, and that stick. europe has no such history that i'm aware of, so we don't have such immediate repulsion towards it, and it kinds of sound logical for us that when you reproduce the appearance of a person, you would also reproduce his/her "color", being of skin or hair, since people are not color blind. there's also the argument that some peope find offensive that you are considering their race a costume

Reason User Banned (2 days): Inflammatory false comparison and history of dismissive behaviour.
Still a generalization. You focus on the worst and wanna change the meaning of the word to reflect that. Like if someone sees an African American teen gang and wants now the term "African American" to refer exclusively that, instead of, you know, the sea of other people that are of that ethnicity. Sorry, but until you are able to prove a correlation between the category and the behavior, other than 'it' s a category so big that of course assholes will also be a part of it' it's a simple generalization that doesn't hold to scrutiny. Also, you are free to give the meaning you want to words, just don't pretend the rest of the world must follow you in this behavior.
