Spread of College "Black Face" Parties

Now, doesn't George look better?

Although this is a sports blog, occasionally an incident (or several incidents) may take place that are not directly relateable to the world of sports; but, we feel a social responsibility to comment.

Not long ago the nation joined together in a sign of unity and remembrance of the positive contributions of one Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Across the wide spectrum of the rainbow, Americans joined hands and hugged each other in deference to the message related through the words and life of Dr. King. While this was going on, some students on college campuses across the nation decided to celebrate Dr. King's vision in their own, unique way: By painting their faces black and bringing to life any negative stereotype of the Negro that they could.

Students at UConn, Tarleton State and Clemson posted pictures on various websites of the frivolous and care free "black face parties" they hosted to commemorate Dr. King and to acknowledge the short time until the beginning of February and Black History Month.

Certainly, sensitive members of the student communities and campuses that hosted these parties voiced displeasure and cried racism and all the other usual vocal protests that one offers when offended.

Well, we at the NOIS would like to offer an alternative view and we would like to encourage future parties on ALL campuses.

Ranneice McDonald, another Clemson student, said she saw nothing funny about it.

"People painted themselves black. Put fake butts inside their pants to signify the big booty black-girl thing. Fake gold teeth in their mouths caps and jerseys -- depicted us as wearing such things as that are disgusting to me. It's disgusting. It makes me sick to my stomach," McDonald said.

While the descriptive of the party may have hurt Ranneice's feelings; we'd like to suggest that ALL white people please paint their faces black at ALL times. It is high time you people showed us the respect and love we deserve. What better way than to cover your pasty, offensively devoid of color skin? Black face would effectively hide that sickly hue that most whites carry. You would be much more palatable to view.

Additionally, we see NOTHING wrong with, and invite ALL white women to sport fake butts. Adding some humps to your otherwise board flat derrieres would be a welcome and comforting gesture. It is the least you can offer the Negro after 400 years of suppression, oppression and repression.

As for the jerseys and ball caps. Again, we'd rather see you in that than J. Crew and Aberfaggie.

The gold fronts; we can do without. To go that far would be racist.

I think I saw your character on the last season of the Real World. Was that you or a different angry, militant negro?

"Real World"

Sir, "Real World"? We are only familiar with BET programming. Haven't heard of "Real World". Now, "College Hill"...THAT is/was a good show!

I found the story about the sorority girls hazing each other in their panties much more interesting than the all black party story.

if the media is cover the actions of drunk college kids, they can at least keep it sexy

"I found the story about the sorority girls hazing each other in their panties "

Sir, we hope it wasn't too traumatic for you. The flashbacks the story brought of you being hazed in your panties must have caused nightmares. If you need to talk about it, let us know. Or just pray to Allah for forgiveness for being so damn cute in the panties that the other boys couldn't stop touching you.

"keep it sexy "

Sir, might we suggest you follow your own advice? The picture of you and your friends most certainly is quite the opposite for our female readers. Thank you.

Maybe we can get sorority girls in panties AND black face to haze each other? Or maybe we can just skip all that and get Serena Williams in her panties?

I would gladly spend all of February paying for the sins of slavery to Ms. Williams.

"How about this pic? More to your liking? "

Sir, I applaud you. The release and unbridled freedom you must feel from allowing the world to view your fantasies must be unparalleled.

Sir, you will! Trust us, YOU WILL.
