I'd laugh if Joe lost all his sponsors for that Porta Potti comment. >: )

i still don't get why just because people painted themselves black to make fun of black people in the past, that means anyone doing it now must also be doing it to denigrate, when the truth is it's hero worship. just as using a highway or driving a vw isn't an affirmation of nazi policies, painting your face isn't necessarily racist. it's no different from wearing a kimono even though you're not japanese, even though in the past racist comedians wore them to make fun of asians.

black face could be racist or it could be hero worship, it depends case by case on why the person is doing it.

I don't really understand it but it's hard to judge race relations in another country when I've not even visited it. All I'll say is that White Chicks is a good film & I don't like double standards.
