In the latest installment of White = Racist … Digital Blackface
And shocker! You’re almost certainly guilty of it… if you’re white.

CNN analyst John Blake argued that digital blackface is real and needs to stop.
What exactly is digital blackface?
According to Blake, it’s when a white person shares a post like the one above, that originated from a news broadcast you can watch below:
CNN posted Blake’s article, where he explains more:
If you’re Black and you’ve shared such images online, you get a pass. But if you’re White, you may have inadvertently perpetuated one of the most insidious forms of contemporary racism.
You may be wearing “digital blackface.”
Digital blackface is a practice where White people co-opt online expressions of Black imagery, slang, catchphrases or culture to convey comic relief or express emotions.
Excuse my use of “Digital Dogface,” I sure hope this doesn’t offend anyone.
But really – “If you’re Black and you’ve shared such images online, you get a pass”?
2 + 2 = 5 folks … and don’t you forget it!
Blake supports his super solid argument with the help of Teen Vogue:
Digital blackface involves White people play-acting at being Black, says Lauren Michele Jackson, an author and cultural critic, in an essay for Teen Vogue.
Teen Vogue… talk about hard-hitting journalism.
😂😂😂just when you think CNN can’t get any dumber. https://t.co/T0uroprQG1

CNN basically became the first digital blackface by posted an article about digital blackface. 🤦♂️

So, let’s get something straight…
When a white person shares a humorous meme or GIF of a black person, it’s racist.
But when a black person shares a humorous meme or GIF of a white person, it’s not?
Totally fits in with Liberal Logic.

Why does the Left insist on creating racism where there is none?
Oh, that’s right… they need to create division and villainize those who refuse to go woke.
The modern-day segregationists do everything possible to keep people divided by race, prevent them from having joyful and natural interactions, ban them from appreciating the culture and humor of others, and in general demand that they have as little in common as possible: https://t.co/pMXVCAf2Xr

Just another ridiculous argument by some Libtard – and really, ain’t nobody got time for that!
