Anonymous asked: or how about you shut up because you can go around judging a teenager who's never heard of black face. so sorry that no ones living up to your expectations

There’s plenty of people living up to my expectations. Just not you, your friend, or ALL THE PARENTS.

Here’s the thing — I can believe someone hadn’t heard of it who’s young. But parents? 

And then trying to defend it after you’ve been told what is, and why it’s offensive? Having your friends post blackface pics in solidarity?

Yeah, that’s over the line.

So sorry, no excuse, no free pass. 

And I’m not the first one who posted about this. I am the one who posted about her inane reverse racism defense after people called her out on using blackface and told her what it was.

In summary, you’ve got hundreds of people to message, so get crackin’!

Cheers,

Meg
