Your Favorite Memes Are Now 'Racist', Lib Claims It's 'Digital Blackface'
Do you feel like the liberal media is trying to divide America with their use of race? In recent days, CNN.com senior writer, John Blake, wrote a column on why posting memes with black people in them is considered “digital blackface” - a term that only applies to white people. This is yet another prime example of the liberal media’s attempt to divide the nation.
In the column, Blake lists examples of possible memes people online have posted over the years, such as a viral video of Kimberly “Sweet Brown” Wilkins telling a reporter after narrowly escaping an apartment fire, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”, a meme of supermodel Tyra Banks exploding in anger on “America’s Next Top Model”, and popular GIFs such as the one of NBA great Michael Jordan crying, or of drag queen RuPaul declaring, “Guuuurl…”
Blake explains further that “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.” He then quotes from Lauren Michele Jackson, a cultural critic and author, who bought into this latest made-up grievance from the radical left.
The problem is that Blake himself has a hard time defining “digital blackface”, admitting that “In trying to define digital blackface, it depends on who you talk to. The standard for some is comparable to what one Supreme Court Justice once said when asked his test for pornography: 'I know it when I see it.”
Unfortunately, the concept of “digital blackface” is made-up nonsense, and it is outrageous that people are being accused of racism for simply posting memes. It’s time for people to wake up and realize that the far left’s woke ideology is nothing more than a ploy to control people’s thoughts and actions. Their goal is to stifle free speech and divide the nation.
The liberal media has been pushing a narrative of division and racial tension in America, which is incredibly dangerous.
I can only hope that Americans see through this nonsense. I have to believe we all do and that we are all getting sick of the media trying to rip us apart.
