Here’s Toronto Maple Leaf Tyle Bozak in blackface. 
You can inform him of his poor choices on twitter. 

Uh do you guys not know what Michael Jackson’s original skin color was or

Do you not know what blackface is or…?

Of course.  It’s nothing new.  If he were making fun of a random black person, yes it’d be offensive, but he’s paying homage to MJ.  MJ was black.  If you can’t deal with that, well…I can’t say what I wanna say.

If you honestly believe that and are defending his decision to ONCE AGAIN (because this is not the first time he’s worn blackface), then you are truly ignorant. Blackface is racially insensitive. It is NEVER “in homage” and it can never BE “in homage” because of what it has always been used for and it’s history. Tyler Bozak could very easily have dressed up as Michael Jackson, even dressed up as MJ when he was still black by wearing recognizeable clothing (like the red jacket from Thriller) without having to paint his face. But he CHOSE to use blackface even though he had gotten in trouble for it in the past.

I’m not ignorant.  Ever seen Holiday Inn?  Fred Astaire uses blackface in honor of Lincoln’s birthday.  This has been around for generations.  I don’t know about the other time he [Bozak] has done this, but maybe he wanted it to be authentic?  Idk but the fact that you’re losing your shit over a damned Halloween costume is stupid.  I’m going as a gangster this year.  Am I being “racially sensitive” to whites because the 20s and 30s were the era of the gangster and people might find that offensive?  Uh no.  It’s just a frigging costume, get over yourself.  It’s not like he does this every day.

You are citing a movie starring a white man from an era where racism was rampant as justification for this? Sorry, I take it back. You’re not just ignorant; you’re a fucking moron.
PS: Gangsters? Not a racial stereotype.

You’re resorting to name-calling.  Mad smooth.  Not.  This is why I don’t get into fights in this fandom, because no one can have a rational discussion without calling people names.
By the way, I bet you had to Google what Holiday Inn was.  And argue all you want, my point still stands.  Astaire did that to honor the slaves made free by Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation on his birthday.  Try watching the movie.
P.S. I’m sure the city of Chicago views gangsters as a racial stereotype after what Capone did to their city.

I suggest you Google “Derailing for Dummies” then and check your last response.
I did not have to Google the movie. But how about you go ask some people of colour if they think blackface honours them? See where that gets you.
Also, once again… Mobsters are not a racial stereotype. It’s a privilege that comes with being the majority - you’re not subjected to insulting and harmful stereotypes. Except maybe “white people are ignorant racists” but people don’t seem to be doing much to dispel that.

You didn’t have to Google the movie, huh?  What’s it about, then?
And do you not know what President Lincoln did?  He freed the slaves.  Astaire was wearing blackface to honor the slaves, and also it was part of a play he and the girl were doing so if you’re honestly losing your shit about Halloween costumes and plays…Idk are you a recluse?  Or do you just not know who Michael Jackson is (or rather, was)?
Again, I’m sure the city of Chicago doesn’t think like that.

Al Capone was a white man running a crime empire composed of other white men in a city full of white people. NOT RACIALLY INSENSITIVE.
I am well aware of who Lincoln was and I am telling you dressing up in blackface IN NO WAY honours the slaves that were freed under his presidency. HERE IS THE WIKIPEDIA PAGE ON BLACKFACE.. If you read it and honestly STILL do not understand the racism, then I really don’t know what’s wrong with you.

Hitler was a white man imprisoning mostly white people in a country full of white people.  Germany doesn’t wanna remember it.  Same thing with Chicago.
And if you watch the scene, and I doubt you have because you have no clue what you’re talking about, you can hear that Fred Astaire is talking about honoring the slaves.
Here is the Google Image results page with pictures of Michael Jackson as a black man.  If you looked at it and honestly STILL do not understand that Bozak was only paying tribute to an African-American artist and not being racist, then I really don’t know what’s wrong with you.

You clearly didn’t read the article.  So once again: BLACKFACE IS NOT SOMETHING THAT EVER PAYS TRIBUTE TO OR HONOURS BLACK PEOPLE AND IT NEVER CAN BECAUSE OF THE HISTORY BEHIND IT.
Also lol, thanks for breaking Godwin’s Law.. How else would you like to further embarrass yourself tonight?

dude, you just compared Blackface to Al Capone to the holocaust. Just stop…just stop.
