Repost: The Blackface Agenda

Blackface is a style of theatrical makeup that originated in the United States, used to affect the countenance of an iconic, racist American archetype - that of the darky or coon. Blackface also refers to a genre of musical and comedic theatrical presentation in which blackface makeup is worn. White blackface performers in the past used burnt cork and later greasepaint or shoe polish to blacken their skin and exaggerate their lips, often wearing woolly wigs, gloves, tails, or ragged clothes to complete the transformation.

Blackface was an important performance tradition in the American theater for over 100 years and was also popular overseas. Stereotypes embodied in the stock characters of blackface minstrelsy played a significant role in cementing and proliferating racist images, attitudes and perceptions worldwide. In some quarters, the caricatures that were the legacy of blackface persist to the present day and are a cause of ongoing controversy.

By the mid-20th century, changing attitudes about race and racism effectively ended the prominence of blackface performance in the U.S. and elsewhere. However, it remains in relatively limited use as a theatrical device, mostly outside the U.S., and is more commonly used today as edgy social commentary or satire. Perhaps the most enduring effect of blackface is the precedent it established in the introduction of African American culture to an international audience, albeit through a distorted lens. Blackface minstrelsy's groundbreaking appropriation, exploitation, and assimilation of African-American culture—as well as the inter-ethnic artistic collaborations that stemmed from it—
were but a prologue to the lucrative packaging, marketing, and dissemination of African-American cultural expression and its myriad derivative forms in today's world popular culture.


Every time an individual adorns black face it’s the equivalent of adorning the veil of supremacy. One assumes the cultural standpoint of subjugating the “negroid appearance, norms and customs” into an edifice, an easily manipulated highly recognizable form of power used by those whose wish to display the ability/capability of exploiting the focus group (black people).

The secondary effects of blackface allow the perpetrators to adapt any new appearance to the overall faciality of the tool. This is the essence of the weapon, a very important piece within the qualia of the distortion. It creates the stigmatic effect of "blackness"; no matter how you evolve as a culture the “blood” of the shuffling negro flows within you.

Thusly creating an asymetric vehicle which transcends time, accomplishments, reason, soley based upon the need to denigrate every aspect of the negro space.

In modern context, asymmetric warfare is increasingly considered a component of fourth generation war . When practiced outside the laws of war , it is often pejoratively characterized as " terrorism ."

Tactical basis
The tactical success of asymmetric warfare is dependent on at least one of two assumptions:

If the inferior power is in a position of self-defense; i.e., under attack or occupation, it may be possible to use unconventional tactics, such as hit-and-run and selective battles where the superior power is weaker, as an effective means of harassment without violating the Laws of war .

If the inferior power is in an aggressive position, however, and/or turns to tactics prohibited by the laws of war, its success depends on the superior power's refraining from like tactics. For example, the Law of landwarfare prohibits the use of using a flag of truce or clearly marked medical vehicles as cover for an attack or ambush, but an asymmetric combatant using this prohibited tactic depends on the superior power's honoring the corresponding rules prohibiting attacking those displaying a flag of truce or a medical vehicle. Similarly, laws of warfare prohibit combatants using civilian settlements, populations or facilities as military bases, but when an inferior power uses this tactic, it depends on the superiorpower respecting the law that they are violating, and not attacking that civilian target.

If I see yo ass in Blackface you will understand what it is to fall under the will of a superior power, I promise...
