Katy Perry sorry for causing pain with racist “blackface” shoes

David MenziesMission Specialist

The last time blackface got this much ink, Al Jolson was singing “Mammy,” but at least accusing him of donning blackface was accurate. Looking at the allegations we hear about today though, it’s as if social justice warriors are engaging in 24/7 Rorschach tests.

Similar to the almost-century-old Rorschach test, P.C. snowflakes are getting triggered not due to what they are actually seeing, but thanks to what they THINK they’re seeing

There was the case of columnist Rashaad Thomas condemning a vintage photo of soot-covered coalminers, actress Julie Andrews’ soot-covered face in the 1964 film “Mary Poppins,” and now to complete our Rorschach hat-trick, a line of shoes from the Katy Perry Collection that have been yanked because the SHOES! are guilty of blackface!

Yes, apparently ebony-hued shoes are racist, prompting Katy Perry to release a statement:

“I was saddened when it was brought to my attention that it was being compared to painful images reminiscent of blackface. Our intention was never to inflict any pain.”

Pain? Who in the world is feeling actual pain looking at a pair of shoes whose only sin is that they’re on the garish side?

I predict that vehicle tires will be the next to face the ire of SJW lunatics. After all, they bear the load, just as American slaves did hundreds of years ago. That was before the invention of Pong and mood rings. Now that’s primitive.

One modification: No one in Jolson’s lifetime “accused” him of wearing blackface. It would be wrong to do so now. Jolson, a hero among black entertainers and in the black community of his time, was simply using a theatrical convention. There was no mockery of African Americans in any aspect of his stage persona, nor did anyone, any critic, any audience member, ever speak of it as demeaning to the black race.

Keith I think the maker of tat shoe polish was trying to be racist although the word niger is from he Niger river and no doubt a sort form for the people from that area. The slang derivative is mean to be insulting to black people which has always left me wondering why so many rappers use it so freely. If it is racist and derogatory (which it is) why would people apply it to themselves?

Liza that was my attempt at humour and I agree. I would like noting better than to see an SNL styled comedy troop. There is a wealth of material with Elizabeth Warren and others and Jussie Smollett running around planning and staging fall over and over waiting for someone to saunter by. I’m in.

I don’t know what the big deal is. Nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a little shoe polish.

Its a great time for comedians who don’t give a sht. The material is extensive and untapped at the moment, due to bought and paid for entertainers. Sad. There is a huge market just waiting to be tapped. We need to laugh this madness right off the planet.
Go Menzies!

Infected minds. That’s all I can say. Or maybe brain parasites.
We are laughing at you retards. Yes retards. These emotionally retarded (as in the verb) misfits, are clearly mentally ill. Not gonna normalize it. Nope. Normal people do not think like that.
See what happens when you social engineers and your sjw enforcers try to force this crap on us? You make us say words like retard and pussy. We mock and laugh at your nonsense.

Did anybody else see that overt symbol of Christianity in that picture of black-faced coal miners?
It’s near the center of the picture on the guy’s beer glass.
I’m surprised the mealy-mouthed whiners, pagans, devil worshippers and other lefty retards aren’t screeching and jumping up and down rending their own hair in protest at this overt symbol of patriarchy and repression of all non-white people!
As for the Rorschach Test picture, I too saw a pussy, er vagina.
When you showed the same picture at the end of the show, however…I saw Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s face…
I think maybe I don’t want to know what some shrink thinks about that.
