Joy Behar

The View co-host Joy Behar caught heat on social media after an old photo surfaced that shows her wearing her hair in a curly perm. That's all I see from where I'm sitting. But social media users are accusing Behar of wearing blackface.

Behar made headlines this week when she claimed to wear makeup "that was a little bit darker than my skin" for a 1970s-era Halloween costume of a "beautiful African woman".

Co-host Raven-Symone asked Behar whether she had on tanning lotion, and if Behar was her auntie.

The Wrap tweeted a video clip from the 3-year-old episode of The View that shows the photo of Behar wearing her hair in a curly perm. It should be noted that the photo did not cause controversy at that time.

The only reason the photo resurfaced now is because blackface is in the headlines after 2 top Virginia lawmakers admitted they wore blackface for Halloween.

When Behar said she was dressed as a "beautiful African woman", she must have been referring to a South African woman. We as Black women should be insulted that Behar is accused of wearing blackface when the photo proves she clearly is not.

We do ourselves a disservice when we fall into this tired liberal/snowflake victimhood routine of seeing offensive, racist symbols behind every tree and under every log.

We must do better.

    Oh...this is just the tip of the iceberg......(the roach syndrome) The one (few) we just seen...its 20 of them we don't

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yup...dem roaches comin out of the woodwork

  • Kim’s Original Face

    The photo on the right is in blackface?

    Let me go look at it again because...??????????

  • Soda

    Joy wanted to get ahead of someone else exposing her by putting the pic out herslf. She ain't slick.

  • rory

    It's even more upsetting that it's always a "Halloween costume".

  • Coy little wink

    She actually said that's her natural curly hair. She looked pretty too...

  • SpiceGirl

    In full force too

  • HotInCleveland

    So she wore bronzer? Where is the blackface? I know plenty of Jewish folks with naturally curly hair that they straighten to the gawds. However, what is this obsession white folks have with melanin and the need to be us as a costume?

  • Applebootay

    We as Black women should be insulted that Behar is accused of wearing blackface when the photo proves she clearly is not.

    CORRECTION: We as Black women don't give AF what Behar is accused of .....this aint our battle.

  • Alextra Ballard

    What is the fascination with white folks wanting to wear black face?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Um...this isn't blackface at all....Joy is Jewish I knew plenty of Jewish people who have natural curly hair...It looks like she got bronzer on but this aint no blackface...the reach is strong with this one...

  • Applebootay

    But We already know the answer to that.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiiile at Raven askin joy is she her ant-tee

  • Pamela

    I'm confused. Why do you think she was referring to herself as a South African woman? I'm a South African Black woman and your explanation would help me understand your comment better.

  • Dowoop

    Yup!!! We are just going to keep it moving..Aint no bandwagon over here.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    We do ourselves a disservice when we fall into this tired liberal/snowflake victimhood routine of seeing racist symbols behind every tree and under every log.

    We must do better.

  • Dowoop

    I believe because alot of South Africans are white because nothing a out Joy looks black in that picture. That hair texture is not exclusive to blacks just like long hair isn't exclusive to whites.

  • Soda

    She said she was a an African woman and used dark makeup to look like one. Blackface by another name (bronzer) is still blackface when you are mimicking black skin. Her own hair and the dress she wore should have been enough.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    @SANDRA
    @SANDRAROSE
    @SANDRAROSE.COM
    I agree. I saw the picture and laughed. It is not an issue from where I stand. She looks like Kris Jenner.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Exactly.

  • Dowoop

    You are making sure she sees this... Lol

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Nope.

  • Dowoop

    Just by looking at that picture could you tell she is wearing bronzer because I sure as hell couldn't. She looks like a white woman in the 70's/80's

  • HelloToni

    She has discussed this few times before and she kept saying how pretty she looked. She was so proud of her appurtenance. Please explain why we cant take this as a compliment.

  • Ni Ni

    I am not going to run my pressure up being mad at white folks. Everybody has said or done something that wasn't in the best light. I've moved on.

  • Soda

    She said it.

  • HelloToni

    What is the roach syndrome?

  • Dowoop

    This thread is going to be a shit storm tuday!! This is just what I needed to head into the weekend.

  • Pamela

    You are wrong. White people in South Africa are a minority; Black people at 76% vs White people at 9%. Do your research before you comment.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Cause back then they all was rocking fros....

  • Soda

    Yep.

  • tia

    Joy looks pretty in the pic and kind of the same as well..

  • the guest

    Oh this needs to stop. Getting out of hand. Joy Behar is not in black face. In the 70's and 80's Jews looked more black. They wore their hair in their natural fros ad they let their skin get naturally dark in the sun. Then in the 90's and 2000's they decided to look white again.

  • Phillybruh

    I want too care but I can't anymore. I refuse too believe its black folks out here finding these things.

  • Dowoop

    But we associate white Africans with South Africa .. Stop trying to spin it. You asked a question and I answered.

  • Jethro

    Where's the blackface?

  • Pamela

    Saying this shows your ignorance and lack of education. Try again.

  • Dowoop

    Well your response shows your stupidity... Not ignorance.

  • Soda

    She said she made her skin darker with make up. For what reason?

  • Topic Influencer

    I said yesterday it was gonna be JOY who got in Dan Gasby's ass over B. Smith and Susan living there. Comes to find out it was Sunny. She had TIME yesterday. Said her and B are friends. She got in his AYS.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Very true

  • Victorious82

    She looks like the 70’s version of Rachel Dolezal. I’m over this black face ish. YT folks are gonna do what they do.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

    White people don't have trademark on naturally long hair.

  • Pamela

    I'm not here to debate with you wrt my history. I've studied and lived in the US, among many other countries. Have you ever travelled anywhere outside your county?

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • LYRICS

    BEEN done with her! I've come to believe that Raven is certified crazy

  • Soda

    It's not about her hair.

  • Coy little wink

    I do...but I'm not easily offended like 90% of people

  • Dowoop

    Girl unroll your panties from that bunch... Better yet it's Friday just take those things off. To answer your question, yes I have travelled, I don't even live in the country I was born and raised it but that's neither here nor there. Travelling doesn't exclude you from being stupid!

  • Dowoop

    I'm beginning to wonder if people are even offended or if they just like to argue.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Actually Joy favors my Mother in this picture. I don’t have any issue with it.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    ??? These ppl need to find something better to do. Are we all supposed to be Sensitive Susie's?

  • Yoni7

    Doesn't look like blackface. However, Joy looks like she got something else up in her that she hasn't disclosed to the public and been passing for yt all these years. Her eyebrows snatched tho'.

  • Rayscoty

    She look cute...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She looks damn good in the photo all I got for this

  • iWasteTime

    As a black woman don't consider this black face and if some do than the WHOLE Kardashian Koven Klan has been wearing black face for YEARS!
    Joy is already a heavily tanned woman of Jewish decent and NO One would have said boo if she, herself, didn't explain why she was dressed up and what she was dressed as. This picture was shown on her platform in 2016, there was no outrage. I don't think "snowflakes" have anything to do with this

  • Coy little wink

    That too. Looking at the pic I don't notice the makeup. She looks tan. Its not noticeable to me its immaterial. She looks pretty and not ridiculous like an aunt jemima or servant type costume where the joke is on us.

  • Topic Influencer

    This. She is dark(er) than most Jews as is. That red hair. I saw old pics of her. She a natural redhead. Like Carol Channing maybe

  • Guest

    She look cute. I don't see it.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Blackface...where...she look more like a 1970 Jewish woman with a bad perm. This picture looks like it was taken about 50 years ago...We have more issues to worry about than tracking down everyone who ever tanned or spray painted their body a shade darker.

  • Bossy704

    She would have looked crazy without the makeup, especially since her body is so tan. It was October. Look at the center of her face. Pasty. She's cute.

  • Ryan

    I don't get it. Where are all of the "outraged liberals"? Only place I've seen this.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I didn't see it,but I hope she went alla way in that ace. He on that 'Color Purpo' kiinna shidt,when Mr had Sug and Cely both livin under his roof.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Fake outrage. Some people have way too much time on their hands.

  • LeeSeeCee

    I don't see it. A 70's perm and a little bit darker makeup does not constitute blackface. BLACK shoe polish applied to white skin is blackface.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • SpiceGirl

    ETA: This should have appeared under the link to B Smith's husband's interview.

  • free

    i wouldn't call that blackface. i like the "black" version of her better.

  • Soda

    If that's the definition then I wonder why so many people were outraged by all those white girls using dark makeup to pose as black girls on Instagram and YouTube?

  • KcoolMuziq

    It's NOTHING wrong with that picture. I just happen to love Joy. I love her give zero f's attitude.

  • the guest

    Back in the day white people tanned until they were darker than black people. Then they were getting skin cancer so they started fake tanning.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Lol! I know thats right!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    She looked beautiful!!!!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Right

  • Dowoop

    To look like a tanned white South African maybe.. ????????

  • Dowoop

    We still don't like you.

  • Soda

    Until she has to issue an apology.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    This is going to far got damn I guess we all racist then. everyday there is something someone said or did that is called a racist this is too much! There is nothing racist about this pic she barely look black. She actually looks pretty.

  • sjames

    those women were actually saying they were mixed and getting brand deals offered to them as women of color when they are not. that's the difference. they got injections in their faces, hips, thighs, and ass to pretend to be "part" black and taking away opportunities from actual black women

  • brooklyn23

    All I got is, how I look now isn't much different from how I looked about 20 yrs ago. Uhm not everyone is fortunate to age gracefully or even look remotely how you did. She looked like she morphed into an older someone else

  • Soda

    Not all of them.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Looks like you bout to go make more babies. lol

  • sjames

    that part

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • the guest

    They use bronzers. Why? Because darker skin is more beautiful that's why. Whites love tanning, baking in the sun, sprays, bronzers, powders to look browner because its more beautiful.

    I'm not talking about minstrel show black face. I'm talking about whites wanting tanned and brown skin. Even Kim Kardashian has gone from olive complexion to a darker light skinned black woman.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She's Jewish so yeah she's not 'white'.

  • missmiami305

    She looks fabulous!!! Folks stay reaching. Nothing racist about this. Nada!

  • the guest

    Exactly. Cause brown and natural is beautiful and she knows it.

  • the guest

    Jews looked better when they let themselves looked more black.

  • dru and neil

    People explaining/apologizing for every f*cking thing are setting a bad precedent that may have great repercussions for us all as a society. I don’t want people to have to explain BS like this. The picture is FAR from black face. Do people not know what the hell black face truly is?

  • ?jessica?

    They made this seem way worst then is. actually I think she looks good. Her make-up was far from The color she is. I see nothing wrong here

  • Rere

    She actually looks better ?? keep that look Joy!!!

  • Blak

    she looks like they typical jewish woman

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Of course they know. It's just they want to make a false equivalence for political purposes.

  • dru and neil

    She’s looking much better I agree, but I don’t think she meant to be in black face. What I want to know is who gets some of these fires lit. This is not the same as those politicians recently outed for black face and overt, obscene racism.

  • Yoni7

  • Rayscoty

    I'm so sick of the gays and the black face.
    Is it racist when a clown paint their face white?

  • WhoKnew

    I used to like Joy when she first joined The View because she was so opinionated and held to her opinions. She's still opinionated but what I don't like is how disrespectful she is to Megan McCain. She's rude and interrupts Megan every time she says something. It's as if she has a buzzer and hits it every time Megan speaks. Sometimes even before Megan can get her words out Joy jumps in and cuts her down. This is my thing. You don't have to like me but I am your colleague at work and you should be professional and respectful. That, Joy is not. And it so freaking obvious she dislikes Megan and I'm not sure why the higher-ups have not called Joy on it. And, what I have noticed is that Joy doesn't try that shyt on Whoopie, which speaks volumes. She intimidates Megan and then Megan will say okay, I just won't say anything. I would have yanked Joy's chains a long time ago if I were Megan.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Not Blackface, here. She actually looks good. That's the problem with the slippery slope nowadays. Energy in places it shouldn't be. I'm waiting for the Wayans playing White Chicks to get pulled into this situation.

  • LeeSeeCee

    I see that as cultural appropriation. These young girls want to look it but in NO way do they really want to live it. It's another form of white privilege as they can remove the makeup and go on their merry little way. JMO as there are quite a few people who don't see it that way.

  • Nik

    She's Italian. I thought she was Jewish also. Behar is her married name.

  • rockstar2142

    Now y’all is not gonna come for joy. Reaching much...

  • Nik

    Joy is actually Italian so she truly has the capacity to get brown, lol.

  • Kayke

    Back in the day everybody wanted a fro....
    did she even admit to that curly perm? because alt of Jewish people have tight curls that grow up and out, hence Jewfro. Not seeing “blackface” in this picture.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't know who they are but white supremacists hate Jews more than black people because Jews are perceived to have money and power.

  • Nik

    She's actually Italian. When she said it I was shocked because she looks Jewish. Her last name threw me off but that's her married name.

    Joy showed that photo to refute some point someone made about curly hair/Afro only being synonymous with black women. Joy was showing that her hair is naturally curly (like most ppl of Jewish ancestry).
    There is nothing offensive about this photo, nor does it depict “blackface”.

They did the same thing to Elizabeth Hassleback. Another republican idiot.

  • Topic Influencer

    This shows your ignorance of Americans. Man of us DO associate White africans with South Africa. Im sorry.

    But this is the connotation MANY of US have. I personally know as MANY others probably do as WELL that they are other places that have WHITE Africans. We cannot assume what others know but try to understand why that is their belief. For US it is due to the teachings of our schools, and many of us growing up during the end of Apartheid. All we saw here splashed on our TVs were white Africans...IN SOUTH AFRICA.

    Dude from Maroon 5. His white lady is from Africa and up until very recently I thought she was South African. Comes to find out she is Namibian.

    So pardon our ignorance but PLEASE try to understand from where it comes from. My goodness.

  • T Willis

    It’s not the same thing. The worst thing you can do is minimalize the struggle of African Americans in this country. Either you’re non-black or an indifferent black person who doesn’t have a full grasp of our history. Putting on shoe polish paint and acting out caricature stereotypes of black ppl is where “blackface” comes from. Along with exaggerated features painted on the faces of yt ppl. Black ppl didn’t create this concept, nor should they be blamed for the r@c!$t idiots that chose to create these looks. However, we are in a greater position of power now (verses when these acts were first in circulation) so we don’t have to sit back and be made to look like clowns for the enjoyment of r@c!$t yts. Now this photo of joy was meant to either make fun of the recent actual events of blackface - or it was meant to lessen the severity of what blackface actually is.

  • T Willis

    Exactly! But it’s not “us” crying, it’s leaks being distributed to media outlets, hoping to generate an emotion of outrage. We really can’t feed into these leaks (that aren’t coming from black ppl) because it comes off as if we leaked it, and are somehow upset by it - which we’re not (in Joys case). And I’m also p*ssed that SR would even post it knowing the effect that it’s going to have on all of us (crying wolf).

  • Andrea Williams

  • chaisun

    Their communities are failing. They have the highest illiteracy rate. They have the heights suicide of dispair rate. Hightestr meth, alcohol and opioid rate. They commit the most crime as per the DOJ but are convicted and jailed 80% less. They have the highest rate of children currently in foster care. They are the main recipients of public assistance. They have the highest rate of sexual abuse to their kids and animals. They also have the highest rate of teachers sexually abusing their kids. Of course they have the infrastructure to shine a bigger ligt in our issues when they’re the ones commuting self genocide. If it were us that owned the rights to reverse the roles the entire world would know the true nature of the white Americans and those all around the world. Their community IS failing.

    I always found your comments lame and incoherent, hence why I've never bothered to engage with you.

  • T Willis

    Yep, all of that is true - however - they are the dominant racial group in this country and in the world. They can afford to have all of those atrocities you mentioned, and still talk sh*t about the rest of us. We are not in a position of power - they are, and continue to remain so. So, everything you’ve mentioned, as valid and accurate as it is, is a mute point because their positioning of power is greater than ours.

    Also, shedding light on this (having other ethnicities or yt ppl speak on our issues) adds a sort of “validity” factor to the argument. I don’t like nor agree that their “validity” holds more power - verses when it’s coming from us or our media - but this is part of the circumstances that come with being a minority with limited power in your country. ?????

  • Soda

    I'm not worried about it, I commented on the subject posted. The point is she chose to imitate an African woman for Halloween and the dark makeup was part of her costume.

  • T Willis

    R@c!sm & stereotyping are as old as time too, should we forget those acts as well? Yt ppl will never forget - so why should we? You would rather the rest of us walk around ignorant to history, while being made fun of, and blocked from any form of upward mobility? Even if you’re comfortable living a life of sub servitude to yt ppl, the rest of us aren’t. To the rest of us, we want and will continue to demand respect and equality, because history teaches us that these are basic entities that yt ppl have (& will continue) to deny us. You couldn’t possibly grasp this concept if you’re ignorant or indifferent about our history in this country. And if that is the case, then perhaps you need to sit on the sidelines and stop being a distraction.

  • TransMichelle

    You have a point. These people on here go on about white folks yet whenever they get a bit of money the first place they want to move to is white communities and put their children in white schools. Majority of immigrants want to come to white countries not black ones. Sure white folks have their issues BUT a big difference is that when white folks destroy something they built new sh*t. Black folks destroy and just move on to the next ghetto.
    These people depend on white folks for their paychecks, Section 8, food stamps, Medicaid, affirmative action, etc. The delusion of "tearing down someone else to look better" doesn't work because "wherever you go there you are." Black people need to mature and become responsible. Black folks are hypnotized by white people and constantly, constantly, comparing our plight with white people but you are right "it's not the same." I tell you something when the Mexicans or Asians take over black folks will wish it was white folks because no other culture or group gave or will give a shit about "righting-wrongs" with black people.

You aren't subservient to anyone if you don't want to be. As well, NONE of what you're griping about has anything whatsoever to do with someone's makeup. There are so many examples of people who did not have your attitude and have found massive success that your old story is just a wash anymore. The only one keeping you down is yourself.

    Keep it pushin then. Matter of fact, let me do us both this block favor. You were out of order for calling Doowop ignorant and lacking of education. Your pretentious, egregious, and condescending, commenting ass can go. Toodles whore.

  • Wile E. Coli

    yeah.. for 2 days! LOL. She made a ton of money. It was a hit. She's a nitwit but that's the way it is. She wasn't fkd with at all.

  • NewNew

    Joy looks great. Next case!

  • T Willis

    It’s black history month, educate me on all of these success stories, because as far as I can tell, in the last 100 years, we make up less than 0.0005 of the wealth in this country - and it’s not from lack of positive attitude or initiative.

    And honestly, I can’t rven respond further without being disrespectful- because your blatant disrespect of our current predicament and history is more than a little disturbing.

    Good day to you.

  • Wile E. Coli

    If you REALLY need me to provide a list of successful black American then you haven't been paying attention and I can't help you. Continue complaining and trying to correct the past if that works for you. "Current Predicament" My azz.

  • CookieMobster

    Dave Chapell did white face too and no one made a big deal about that either. You are so right!! I wish we could allllll put a stop to this snowflake, mountain out of a mole hill type behavior. It takes away from things that are truly wrong and offensive when we holler that we are offended by the little miniscule things!!!

  • T Willis

    Lmao you know dayum well you can’t produce sh*t ? homie just sit over there and take this “L” ? it’s a wrap for you and your ignorant delusions ?

  • Wile E. Coli

    Now you're just babbling. Carry on.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Joy doesn't have enough time left in her life to be as smart and aware as Megan is. To be fair, ALL of the women on that show are nitwits but Joy takes the cake.

  • stav

    There is a difference with a comedian using satire as their profession( Eddie Murphy was being funny and providing some truth with his satire)to gain laughs in a non-malicious way, and a person doing the exact same thing maliciously to hurt and exhibit their racist views. Jimmy Fallon did it when playing Chris Rock , I was not offended and it was funny. We should all know the difference when something is being done from hate .

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I just see curly hair...what am I missing

  • T Willis

    ? I’m happy I was able to introduce you to a new word. Should I send you an invoice?

  • RealATLPeach36

    HaHa

  • Dun Dilly

    I've been saying:
    "BLACK people should NEVER trust white people who CALL other WHITE people racists"... since when do white people snitch on each other to minorities and NOT have a sinister plan waiting in the wings??
    These DEMS in Blk face, from Virginia Politicians to the white jewish Hollywood types are all guilty.

  • Nicol B

    A lot of "them" straighten their natural hair too!

  • shauna

    There is no and has never been any such thing as "white face" or do you know of the historical denigration of whites by Black folks where we put white powder on our faces to play them as buffoons, coons and lazy ass clowns and did everything in our power to separate them from their humanity.

    And Eddie Murphy did this comedic skit to point out the dichotomy of how white people are with each other when there are no Black faces in the room as opposed to how they may put on when we're within ear distance. Obviously it was an over the top exaggeration, but any somewhat logical person with active brain cells gets the gist.

  • shauna

    Joy isn't Jewish. She is an Italian Catholic.

  • Wile E. Coli

    watchutalkinbout Willis?

  • TheOwley

    Whatever event this was, she was trying to be a black woman albeit a light skin one. She's throwing stones at her brethren white folks. Maybe she should start with herself.

  • J2PC

    Her skin is darker to look like a honey colored Black woman. You mean white folks only sporting the Sudan Black colors offend you?

    The same Black folks crying culture-appropriation, racism and all might as well forgive the Rachel Dolezal, Kardashians & a number of other white women who have sported the looks of Black women or claim to identify as Black.

    Hypocrisy is showing now that they are making excuses for Joy Behar. It is paving the way to say it is okay. Rachel can piggyback off of that.

    Nothing like biased folks making excuses for some White folks while bashing those that they don't like for doing the same thing making it easier to debate, whitewash the whole argument about being insulted or feelings being hurt.

  • TheOwley

    All these democrats wearing black face. Now the media is trying to help them out by changing the narrative and saying ""it's not black face, it's DARK MAKEUP."" I got news for those that will give them a pass, dark make up to resemble black skin on a white person is still black face. It's more offensive when the color is tar.

  • Tlowe89

    Yeah I don’t see where her skin looks darker... she curled her hair or put on a curly wif but I don’t see where she crossed the line

  • J2PC

    A number of White women like Kardashians sporting cornrows & tanner skin with bigger lips & butts are said to look great by other men. But, there is hatred among Black women because those same women are making $$$ by looking great as Black women with wealthy Black men chasing them. -shall we say next case?

    Contradictions & hypocrisy to make excuses whenever it's convenient means it was never really worth the argument to begin with.

    No wonder any Black movement is easily whitewashed & fazed out and soon forgotten about with nothing gain from it. No one can respect nor take seriously those who flip-flop on issues to make excuses instead of taking a firm stand.

  • Navybeans95

    Hey ...ytpepo...BLACK FACE is when u go that extra mile on Halloween to go buy black paint and smear that shat all over your face...this pic is actually done correctly...ok bye...

  • Navybeans95
  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Didn't Shawn and Marlon Wayans make a movie dressed as Two White Girls... sigh.. this is becoming redundant.. At this point I can see folk are going to go back and forth about who wore Black face and White face.. constantly ?

  • the guest

    Joy Behar hair is white relaxed and straightened.

  • Dahl

    How old is that pic? (No I didn’t watch the video) she actually looks good...

  • seun

    Outrage culture. Is she cancelled now?

  • Li-Wright

    This is another non-story. Her hair is probably a wig, or it could be her natural curly hair -- she IS Italian. And the makeup is just that -- Makeup. Did anyone mention Whoopi and Ted Danson yet? What's wrong with Halloween makeup to look like someone else?

  • Li-Wright

    It's a non-story. Plus -- there's no law against putting on blackface. Sorry, but it's not against the law. If you want to make it a law, you should campaign for it.

  • Li-Wright

    Not just Dems, but a Republican in the VA legislature wore black face, that's why nothing's being done against the Dem governor.

  • Gela

    If she hadn't of said "African woman", you wouldn't have know. She looks like she just came back from the beach, not a white woman pretending to be black. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/deca16026fcbeb6b139c3260447a6a5cb02531af1dbfefa239f25d0e13533ae0.jpg

  • TheOwley

    True dat. But my comment was based on the media trying to soften the blow which you know they would not do if the governor was a republican. And they are going soft on the man being accused of rape because he is black. A different standard means lack of respect for those victimized.

  • TheOwley

    I agree but in her case, she said the truth and what she was trying to accomplish. Lots of white folks want to be 'colored' to mock, and because they covet melanin. I don't know in what context she did this, but with the dude here is obviously a taunt, mock, ridicule, scorn jeer, tease, and however else people have come to know black face.

  • Gela

    She said it was for a Halloween party, and listening to her describe it, and seeing the measure to which she did it, I'd say this was admiration. No disrespect, taunt, mock, ridicule, scorn jeer, or tease. But to each his own is where this topic will end.

  • TheOwley

    What we need to understand here is that you can't parcel the subject matter. It's admiration here for so and so but derision and hate for so and so. We can also say then that Rachel Dolezeal should be given a pass and she wasn't. That woman says she feels black, admires black, identifies as black, wants to be, works for black causes, etc. But others have killed black while wearing black face for their misdeeds.

    It's wrong and wrong. Period. My suggestion is that in 20 years we won't see anymore black face because of what we are experiencing today and in 50 years it would be unheard of. In the meanwhile those that did this in the times they did will be called out. Look at Megyn Kelly how she lost her job over pure ignorance about black face. This should be lessons learned for everyone.

  • teather

    I thought I was the only one confused. WTF is going on these days. We have to gain control over this BS. It's time for us to stand up for ourselves, define ourselves and our objectives. WE need leadership so badly.

  • Gela

    Rachel straight lied and pulled the government into her story, I don't think you can compare that to a Halloween costume. It started for a horrible reason, and I agree it does need to end.

  • TheOwley

    Yes Rachel lied but she thinks she's black just like many people think they are one thing when in reality they are something else but they believe their own delusion. Regardless of the reason for doing that, it's clearly wrong when you do so on a world stage.

  • Jack Blakk

    Don't complain when these negros bleach their skin, lol.....

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    Ok thanks for the clarification...this gets on my last nerve. We have bigger fish to fry!!!!

  • Gloria

    This is NOT black face. Chile, I can not deal with these people who just holla out racism for any mundane thang!

    It REALLy allow folks to say "Black people pull the racism card for everything." SMH

  • NewNew

    I get all that. I'm not personally offended by Joy's photo. I think she looks pretty to be honest. And i said what i said.

  • Music

    People will find ANYTHING to get offended by. They must be bored.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    If that is the case, Joy should stay black because I’ve never seen her look this good.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    She looked like what Ariana Grande is currently trying to look like ?

  • Chocolate

    To me, blackface is when they look clownish/cartoonish and over exaggerate African features for the sole reason to mock.
    I believe her when she said she dressed up as a pretty African. When white women are honest and not jealous, they really do admire black women’s beauty. They compliment me all the time.
    I’m not sure if she is Jewish or not but they can get a straight up fro. My sis’ hair is just like my friend’s Jewish gf, and my male Jewish friend’s hair is kinkier than mine and many black men I know. He has had to go to a black barber since he was little.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Is that Ben Stiller’s daddy???

  • PrettyNetty28

    Thank you. Ms. Chocolate ??

  • PrettyNetty28

    You know what...???

  • Yui

    Nah, the lead guitarist from Journey Neal Schon.

  • AndSo

    Those Kardashians are doing the opposite of trying to look black. They have had so much surgery to look more Caucasian in the face with the jaw (Chloe) and nose slimming plus long hair extensions. Yes, they've had breast implants galore, but that ain't just black. The only thing that might play to that would be the butt implants. That's it, but, to be real, they've ended up looking straight up robot at this point. Not even human.

  • AndSo

    I think that people need to accept that there are certain features that most people find attractive these days. That includes big lips, big eyes, long, silky hair, contrasts like light eyes + straight hair + tan skin, smaller noses and ample breasts and butts. I don't think it is even a "race" deal. Just a feature deal, and the fact of the matter is that combination of features isn't easy to find. Maybe in places like Brazil where there is so much European, Indian, Black and even Middles Eastern mixing.

  • AndSo

    She is Catholic. She has never been Jewish and is not of Jewish decent.

  • AndSo

    She's not Jewish, tho' She's Catholic. Don't matter tho', this is stupid to get riled up over.

  • AndSo

    People like contrasts. Light eyes and tan skin look good. They accentuate each other. Caucasian features and tan skin look good because, again, they accentuate each other. It's a feature thing, not a race thing.

  • AndSo

    She is NOT Jewish! She is Catholic. It don't matter, tho', cause this ain't something to get crazy over.

  • J2PC

    I'm not offended either. Pointing out what the hypocrisy & double-standard where one person gets a pass and it's called pretty. Yet, a younger attractive women will be ostracized, criticised and called racist or 'culture appropriating.'????

  • Chicagowise

    LMAO! Excellent commentary!

  • ALLMINE?

    Black folks lol

  • NewNew

    Agree to disagree then?

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Don't look like no black face to me, just a good as tan

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Either way the shit isnt offensive....you happy now???

  • Guest414

    Yawll people.. it has GOT to be young black people going on this chase of hunting down anything that looks remotely blackface. For crying outloud we got so many bigger fish to fry. I was done when black folk (yes I am black) wants to boycott Adidas for releasing all white shoe for Black History Month... I am DONE with these fake black conscious folk ...don't do NOTHING in the field everything is online and a hashtag.. just stop it already.

  • AndSo

    Yeah, 'cause you educated yourself. Still, no reason to get crazy over.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    No ones crazy over here sweetness... Thank you for "the more you know" moment... now take your fact and go...
