If I paint my face black, , then I will be excoriated in the press as being “racist”. I would never dare to be seen in Blackface for fear of being excoriated by my fellow citizens…
But if I dress up as a woman, wear makeup and a wig, with prosthetic boobs, then I am supposed to be accepted.
Pretending to be black, bad, pretending to be woman, good….
Why the difference?
(BTW, I am white and male)
