CNN analyst John Blake suggested that white people posting pictures or viral videos of black people are guilty of “digital blackface” in a Sunday article.
Blake claimed that white people posting gifs or memes featuring black people are guilty of racism. He also used the term “digital blackface” to refer to white people using “black imagery, slang and catchphrases” online.
“If you’re Black and you’ve shared such images online, you get a pass,” Blake wrote. “But if you’re White, you may have inadvertently perpetuated one of the most insidious forms of contemporary racism. You may be wearing ‘digital blackface.’ Digital blackface is a practice where White people co-opt online expressions of Black imagery, slang, catchphrases or culture to convey comic relief or express emotions.”
Pushing his claims, Blake wrote in his CNN op-ed:
Some may say posting a video of Sweet Brown saying, “Oh Lord Jesus, it’s a fire” is just for laughs. Why overthink it? Why give people yet another excuse for labeling White people racists for the most innocuous behaviors?
But critics say digital blackface is wrong because it’s a modern-day repackaging of minstrel shows, a racist form of entertainment popular in the 19th century. That’s when White actors, faces darkened with burnt cork, entertained audiences by playing Black characters as bumbling, happy-go-lucky simpletons. That practice continued in the 20th century on hit radio shows such as “Amos ‘n’ Andy.”
“If you’re White and you’ve posted a GIF or meme of a Black person to express a strong emotion, you may be guilty of wearing ‘digital blackface,'” writes John Blake | Analysis https://t.co/KlHkWWHq6x

Dang he must be going to run for the Rainbow house against Brandon. Who else could be that stupid.
Has this guy also notice there are no black people in TV commercials?
What we have are light skinned black people who talk like white people, live in white people type houses, drive white people cars, and work in white people jobs.
We never see any REAL black people on TV. And that is racism because the media is admitting they aren’t acceptable to show.
You forgot “ONLY HAVE WHITE WIVES”!
Can’t find a white man in commercials any longer!
Wall, hush mah mouf! And GFY.
Well there it is…my laugh for the week….
These scumbags have no end to the ridiculous ignorance, good ol whitey will be a thing of the past the way things are going and good luck your gonna need lots of it.
It is called grasping for straws. They have come to a point where they have to make something up to keep the vilification of white people going because they have run the other accusations into the ground. The old comments have lost effectiveness.
Now what type of new racist description will we get for white people married to black people?? Genital black face??
Stupid is as stupid does and they get paid for this bs
AND THE LIBERAL MEDIA IS GUILTY OF DIGITAL GENOCIDE!
WHITE SHOWS, COMMERCIALS, MOVIES, CHARACTERS ARE BEING REPLACED, RETOLD, RECAST WITH BLACKS!
WHITE MEN ARE ALMOST COMPLETELY ELIMINATED FROM MARKETING!
WHITE WOMEN ARE CONTINUOUSLY PORTRAYED WITH BLACK MEN AND THEIR LITTLE BLACK KIDS!
AND THE CORRUPT DISHONESTY OF LIBERAL NEWS IS ALMOST 100%
Hahahaha. Nope! That’s completely false and fabricated. Try again libtards.
I think black people are complete morons. Oh and I am black man tonight. Hahaha but it might change tomorrow.
