One of my followers asked me to post this on their behalf. A white girl in Australia’s “African” themed 21st birthday party, which she titled “This is Africa…. my 21st :)”
Attendees were all asked to wear “African themed” clothing to depict the continent and this is what resulted… blackface, elephant and gorilla costumes, warpaint, native American headdresses (?!) and more…. I’m at a loss for words.
And yes, this is from 2013.
The girl posted the pictures proudly and flatly refused to take them down when confronted by another individual about how they were racist apparently. Pictures were reported to facebook weeks ago and they still have not been taken down.
In case you ever wanted to know how white folks saw us black Africans… here you go.
I mean yeah not all africans dress like that but lets say you were throwing a Hawaiian party…people would dress in hula skirts and drink from coconuts ect. they wouldnt dress in normal clothes with a cup of starbucks like actuall hawaiians in hawaii dress. oorrrrr if the theme was austrialian people would dress like kangaroos and wear safari gear….it’s just how Africa is veiwed to people not in Africa… I’m black and i dont know the first thing about Africa…but if i was invited to an african themed party i would dress like that…its only racist if you make it racist…i just think they were having a good time
oh ? ok so u would just walk up to the guy in the kkk costume with the whip on his hip like “hey timmy nice costume”” then walk up to the guy in the gorilla outfit like “hey sam yeah my people really are as dumb as monkeys great costume dude *high 5*” ?
