Blackface Is Still Racist and Wrong. Yes, Even In Korea

Another incident of blackface happened on SNL Korea; this time A Pink’s Bomi played the role of Michol from the 1983 cartoon, Dooly the Dinosaur. The task of explaining how blackface fits into a global system of white supremacy is a taxing experience in itself.

Whenever these conversations emerge, I remember a quote from Toni Morrison:

“The function, the very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language and you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of this is necessary. There will always be one more thing.”   Toni Morrison
