Dear White Folks: Just Say No to Blackface This Halloween

Over on the web site Good, Senior Editor Cord Jefferson has penned a rather PC tract begging young white people not to don blackface this Halloween season, as every year there is some tear-soaked scandal in which this happens. The young whites cry that they didn’t know it was wrong. The black folks cry, “Why are we still being treated this way?” Lots of anger and accusations of oversensitivity and insensitivity are hurled back and forth. And then by Thanksgiving, the whole thing dies down. Until the same time next year, when it all happens again.
