Western culture is still racist, but I agree that pointing that out doesn't address the issue at hand, especially when Africans don't have a history of colonization like Western culture does.Unfortunately most of the highly aligned comments are pointing at how racist western culture was. Pure whataboutism from hundreds of what some would assume paid posters. Why is the CCP so sensitivity about being seen as race intensive?
"Blackface" and racial stereotypes shouldn't be used to depict Africans/African Americans in the media, period. I'm reminded of Robert Downey Jr's role in Tropic Thunder back in 2008, where he went "full blackface" for the role. There was controversy over the film back then but it went on to make $188 million.
Difference there being he didn't play a black character, he played a white character playing a black character.
Or as he put it a "dude playing a dude disguised as another dude"
