    And the racism train at Dook continues.

    Sad.

    In my opinion nothing is more racist than the institutional racism that exists/existed at UNC. Where black the student athletes and the mentally defective (take Psycho-T) were segregated away from the real classes at UNC. I thought America was better than this.

    Obviously most posters on this thread never saw the films featuring the Lil Rascals. Had they group left out the black character of the orignial Our Gang, that would have been racist. Get over it, nothing racist in the theme.

    It's not cool to mock a minority. But it's just as fine as frogs hair to mock a white man. Wonder why that is?
    Double standard? Uhhhh yes. Typical Liberal bias BS

    From your own link...

    "Blackface is a form of theatrical makeup used in minstrel shows, and later vaudeville, in which performers create a stereotyped caricature of a black person."

    Do I need to define stereotype for you?

    stereotype - a set of inaccurate, simplistic generalizations about a group that allows others to categorize them and treat them accordingly

    Apparently a couple of UNC fans can't read or just have a hard time understanding this is not what she did. She dressed like a black character and painted her face black. Did she exaggerate the lips? Walk around with a bucket of chicken or a watermelon? Use the ol' Sambo slang?

    Sorry, if you want to get your little panties all in a wad over this, have at it.

    Our society has become way way too sensationalized.

    If I got offended every time I heard an African American or Asian or Hispanice say some derogatory or racist towards white folks, I would be mad all the time.

    If it bothers you, it is your problem, not mine.

    Since you must spend alot of time at Duke investigating all of your conspiracy theories, why dont you ask some of the African American, Asian, Latino and any other kids you can find about this supposed racism.

    Funny, I think I have seen folks with black face on comedies on TV and no backlash was brought up. Guess it must be that double standard/hypocritical thing I keep mentioning.

    Good luck with all your investigations and conspiracy theories. I have recently bought stock in a tin foil company, so thanks for that also.

    I tell you what Ken, go black face and go down to NCCU's campus and tell me what happens. After that go with a rubber mask.

    Should be an interesting experiment.

    Leave it to Dookies to think that something that has not been done in real life since the 30's or cartoons since the early 50's is appropriate today.

    Sadly many Dookies today seem to share views with another Duke, this one named David.

    Black face was used to make fun of blacks in plays and cinema. I fail to see how she was making fun of an African American here. DooksucksV3=William Barber.

    I based my statement on the team photo. If any of those women was black, she did a better makeup job than Buckwheat. But, maybe she was just unavailable on the day the pic was taken. Regardless, that is a remarkably white team.

    I have a more pointed question. If the girl dressed as Buckwheat had somehow managed to find a rubber mask of that character, and wore that instead of makeup, would that have been less offensive? In other words, is the problem using makeup (not "blackface" as it has been characterized) or is it portraying a fictional character who was not politically correct?

  • Tar Heels Victory-Show No Mercer Nov 13, 2012

    I believe it was very insensitive, but not racist. Because of people like Al Jolson and his "Mammy" sketch, non-blacks should be very careful in their portrayal of other races.

    I can honestly say that I have no problem with the costume! I certainly don't think the player had any intentions of offending anyone.

    It seems people will grasp at anything and try to call it racist. Black Face was used in the early 1900s as a way for whites to portray blacks in theatre. More times than not it was used in a derogatory way. It was also done in a way that emphasized large lips and large white eyes, much different than displayed in the photo I saw. I dont see the racism in this, just a group of girls dressing as a characters everyone knows. How do you dress as "the little rascals" and leave out one of the most well-known and beloved characters in the group? Stoopid, ...maybe, but not racist imho

    Since all 32 women on the Duke lacrosse team are white, they simply didn't have anybody who could play the character of Buckwheat without makeup. But it's the wearing of the makeup that's offensive, not the makeup of the team.

    Black face is so racist that they stopped using it 60 years ago.

    Sadly many Dookies don't even realize their racist tendencies.

  • Tizu Nov 13, 2012

    It was a costume for crying out loud. How can you possibly be so sensitive? Buckwheat was a black character, she painted her face to be the character. It's no different than people dressing up as axe murderers for Halloween...does that make them murderers? NO!

    God the political correctness of society now days is sickening. It's fine to dress up like a murderer, but paint your face and you're a racist!

    People are so ignorant...and that includes this d-bag formerly known as Marked8.

    Well obviously Duke didn't approve. Ya know since they took the picture down from the website. The lax coach threw a costume party for Halloween. I don't think she made the team get their costumes approved ahead of time, Mr. Sensitive.

    Did they paint their faces brown?

    Had they done that and had University approval, it would be equivalent.

    How many Duke students did this? Probably only one. A whole sorority at UNC showed this racist display:
