EtcetEraThread NYT: American identity politics are a threat to France, French leaders say
Reason User banned (duration to be determined by admin review): defending blackface, account in junior phase
Again, literally first thing acknowledged in my post. It wasn't on black people though, which is my whole point. We have our own messed up history and based on that, things that are taboo here are okay in the US (e.g. Jewish jokes like Family Guy pulls frequently are completely unacceptable), things that are taboo in the US are okay here. (e.g. "blackface", as we have no history of systematically oppressing black folks and it doesn't have the same context linked to minstrel shows). What I'm trying to say is it reeks of cultural imperialism to try and apply the American view on every society. We all have our own history and our societies are different as a result.
