Blackface hysteria again

As far as one can tell, the women concerned were fans of the black player and the black face was intended as a tribute to her.  They were probably unaware of the hysteria that blackface attracts in America.  And note how one person in blackface makes some sour media people condemn the whole nation of Australia as racist.  Fabulous reasoning.  What do we deduce from the 23 million Australians who never wear blackface?

A spectator has been criticized after appearing in the crowd during a Serena Williams match at the Australian Open [tennis] wearing 'blackface'

The fan was seen during Williams' semi-final clash with Polish star Agnieszka Radwanska on Thursday

Other fans were quick to react to the controversial attire, with many saying it proved Australia is a 'racist' country.

'There's a Serena Williams fan in the crowd ... wearing blackface,' American journalist Russell Brown tweeted.

The fans were also holding a sign that read: 'keep calm and be Serena'

Next thing you know this will be the reason that Serena Williams lost the final because she was still traumatized. Give me a break. All this bullshit about blackface is just a leftist beat up. What about Michael Jackson and his white face? That sure as hell offended me.
