Another blackface controversy

The blackface was apparently just part of some dressing up fun

BASKETBALL star Liz Cambage has slammed fellow Opal Alice Kunek for featuring in a photograph with her face painted brown.

Kunek, 25, posted a picture of herself on Instagram on Sunday, dressed up in ripped white clothes, a beanie and painted face alongside her Melbourne Boomers teammate Tess Madgen, who was also in fancy dress.

Cambage, whose father is Nigerian, put national squad unity aside to blast Kunek’s behaviour in a series of tweets.

For her part, Kunek delivered an apology within an hour of Cambage’s missive.

“I am so unbelievably sorry to all my followers who were offended by my previous post. It was never my intention to offend anyone at all. It was an honest mistake,” Kunek posted on Instagram.

Kunek also deleted her initial post, replacing it with a similar picture without the face paint.

Anyone who is genuinely offended by that photo of the woman with the brown makeup on her face is probably neurotic and requires serious cognitive therapy. But that will be few people if any. Most who claim to be offended by such things are fakes, just pretending.

The woman with the makeup need not have apologised. She is submitting to bullies by doing so.

Pretending to be offended is the old trick for silencing and oppressing good but weak people, and is the commonest excuse used to justify hostilities against them. Thugs, feminists, oppressive husbands and wives, workplace psychopaths and bullies, totalitarian regimes, all pretend to take offence as a way to assert their dominance over others and to pressure them to comply with their will, and as fake justification for their oppressive and hostile actions.

Personally, I dislike seeing good but weak people trying not to offend bullies by complying with their demands on how to behave and speak, and deluding themselves that they are being considerate of others when in fact they are just scared, weak charactered and giving in to intimidation.

Leftists are always claiming to be society's good people, the caring ones, even the spiritual people. However, spiritual people don't get offended, and don't kowtow to those who do get offended, and don't support their being offended, because being offended is not a virtue, its a weakness.

The only advantage in taking offence is to gain power and control over kind people who don't want to offend others. And what sort of person/s aspire to that sort of advantage over others? Only leftists and feminists, and their less intelligent, emotional and manipulable tools such as blacks and Muslims and anyone else they can manipulate into adopting victimhood as an identity, and believing that feeling offended puts them in the right.
