Should Robert Downey Jr. Apologize for HIS Black face?

Nobody Flashes

If you are an ACTOR, then it’s okay to wear blackface. Here Robert Downey Jr. not only went blackface, he had the whole black man thing down pat.

Back then, everybody thought it was funny. (Although the movie had a LOT of cussing in it.)

This whole black face farce is ridiculous. What about when Whoopi played an old white man?

Every culture has its proclivities, it’s very real customs, and ways of talking. Actually, making fun of other cultures made us all laugh, and once upon a time, an Italian could work with an Irishman, make fun of each other and it was NOT taken so seriously.

Back then, we didn’t have politicians trying to divide us all. We were ALL….Americans. Mutts one and all and everybody knew it.

You won’t hear anybody remember THIS movie, or ask Robert Downey Jr. to recant his ‘insulting’ racist performance.

One thing you do have to admit…he did fine job.
