    Seriously, It’s Holloween people. Get past the racial crap and just have fun! I hate it when balcks dress up like whites!!!!! Whatever!! Grow up!.

  • wifey06

    Let’s be real they all want that black swagga we all got in us… that is until the cops arrive!!!!!!

  • Mr. K

    I don’t think this Reggie Bush costume is offensive at all. Nor did I think the Dallas Cowboy cheerleader that dressed up like Lil Wayne was being racist. These are halloween costumes! They clearly admire Reggie and Wayne and wanted to be them for a few hours.

    I think we all know the type of black face that is offensive when we see it. That Australian group was straight up ignorant, offensive black face!!

    Maybe if white folks had of never made fun of blacks with the black face back then , wouldnt be no ” oh you are paranoid”” Would you put on a Howard Stern face and add a big long nose to it and a white face.. Im sure he would be offended!!

  • Billy

    @ heard that

    That is all you white people want to do is tell black people to “RELAX” “GET OVER IT” “You People are Too Sensitive” That is our problem Black people are not standing up anymore and being brainwashed into the hype too forget the mental, physical abuse we been subjected over 300 years???
    I DON”T SEE THE JEWS TELLING THEIR CHILDREN TO FORGET AND GET OVER THE HOLOCAUST!!! IT IS A MOCKERY

  • http://hmlt Too short

    WHO CARES, its Halloween, give it a break

  • Vandellish

    @Heard that & Billy,
    So I guess anything goes on Halloween huh? Well, to each his own, but even you ‘relaxed’ types wouldn’t like it if it became too widespread would you?
    If I see a m/f in some blackface I’m checkin they azz period!

    I think any white person who outs on a blackface, Lil Wayne or whatever is ignorant and racist, if she adores him she could have been Lil Wayne the way he dresses without the black face (very racist and offensive) , she probably when you bring it down dont even like him no way)~!

  • sunny

    Personally, I’M NOT OFFENDED. I think they were being very creative, and mocking the ever so sickening Kim and Reggie. Face it, Halloween is the time of the year when everybody dress up and pretend to be something they’re not!!! Lighten up people!!…Relax

  • diva79

    Black people dress in “white face” all the time…
    I think about White chicks, Coming to America, Dave Chappelle… I could go on forever but the point is people are always ready to pull the race card and it sets us back even further. It’s all in good fun people lighten up

  • Re

    Okay, putting on Brown make up in reference to your favorite celeb/character on Halloween is not blackface. Putting black/tar colored make up and painting your lips red is blackface.

  • Wonder Woman Damn

    All i gotta say is you dont see black people goin around with white paint on tryna be white. If we wanna dress up like a white person, we do just that “dress up like that person” but we dont try to change our skin color.

    I think white people think its “cool” to be black so i guess we should take it as a compliment

  • sunny

    Hey Rose…..u cutting up this morning I see. LOL

  • AlekWekJunkie

    blacks (particularly on blogs) talk/degrade/demean so bad their own why should they be offended at whites when they do schitt like this (caricatures)??

  • http://perryone779@yahoo,com rose by any other name #9304026339482056536 ™

    I dont care if it is brown make-up its still darkening the skin and it was not necessary to do that to imitate Lil Wayne, can she dance like him/ can she rap like him , whats the point of the dark skin.. if she could rap like him or showcase like him then she would be on point.. what thehell was the purpose of the black brown (whatever) face !! we all know lil Wayne is black!!

    Hey Sunny, yeah even thou you and i disagree , we are still mature enough to not fall out about it! But i still respect you for your opinion!!

  • MochaDreams

    Am I offended by it? No, not particularly, but just like others have said, if a Black person wants to be say Madonna for Halloween, we don’t go around slathering ourselves in white make-up, so why is it that the pank people feel the need to do blackface to be convincing as one of us? If you truly believe you need black paint for us to know who you are, then you need another damn costume!
