Brownface. Blackface.

Unless you’ve been under a rock, pretty much every celebrity (traditional or otherwise) who did some form of black/brownface in the past have been called out on their actions. Together in that mix are the people who mock languages. Peculiarly enough, it’s always the Asian languages.

Maybe because I’m Asian, but I don’t understand why non-Asians find it funny to mock Asian languages.

But I digress.

While we’re dragging mostly white people for black/brownface and making way for their apology tour across social media, did we all collectively forget about an entire subculture in Japan dedicated to blackface?

If you’re calling people out, at least be fair about it.

And maybe realize that you’re not as non-racist as you think you are.
