He’s not blacking up for a minstrel show

But I’m sure we’ll be able to find some justice warrior who will complain about this:

Local Fox TV reporter with vitiligo reveals he covers up his skin patches with make-up so he isn’t a ‘distraction’ on screen – after vowing the condition would not destroy his career

  1. I did like the whining Black woman who complained that the British only accepted Harry’s slut because she is so pale.

    As if Black men do not uniformly prefer women with lighter skin. Try to find a single one with options who is married to a woman with darker skin. Look at the enormous effort many non-White women make to look paler.

    Still, he is on Fox so everyone is bound to go nuts.

    I would only say that it is OK to be White. It is OK not to be White. It is more than OK to have a medical condition that causes the skin to change colour. Although not if you’re Michael Jackson. Then you should seek medical help.

  2. “He’s not blacking up for a minstrel show” Lots of performers didn’t black up for minstrel shows, by reason of being black in the first place.

  3. Admirably professional. After all, a reporter is supposed to be an observer of events, not the observed, and should avoid doing anything that diverts the attention to themselves.

  4. jgh: True. However no doubt the complaint will be that he should be out and proud. After all he’s black and pigmentally disadvantaged – 2 ticks in the diversity box.

  5. “As if Black men do not uniformly prefer women with lighter skin. Try to find a single one with options who is married to a woman with darker skin.”

    Obama?

  6. Obama dumped his half-White half-Japanese girlfriend around the time he got serious about running for politics. With no significant ties to the Black community – being raised entirely by his mother’s family in Hawaii and Indonesia.

    Michelle was necessary.

  7. “As if Black men do not uniformly prefer women with lighter skin. Try to find a single one with options who is married to a woman with darker skin.”

    Yes and Obama does have a lighter skin…
