Some are offended.
I totally get it.
If white people were depicted as servants, I would consider it racist and be highly offended. In particular I am highly offended of the depiction of Hazel, the fictitious 1960’s sitcom character. She is always portrayed as a white servant who is consigned to her lot in life and even seems to enjoy it.
I understand, then, why the “racist” Blackamoor brooch worn by Princess Michael of Kent to a Christmas event irked the media.
Blackamoor art is considered racist because it frequently depicts blacks as servants.
This, of course, is far worse than another art form — hip-hop music — that not only portrays blacks as foul-mouth, violent, psychopathic drug bums, but glorifies the life style and is attributed to countless deaths of young black males. See video below.
The brooch worn by the 72-year-old princess is benign and harmless. The image, itself, was not demeaning. It was the apparent art form that the media found repulsive.
Which is worse? Which is more detrimental to black people? Blackamore art? Or hip-hop music?
The 30,000-year-old British culture is being erased in our generation … and the media is in a hissy over a harmless brooch?
