More blackface on political blogs

wolf blitzer blackfaceWow, do we need to start a “blackface blogging” category here on Racialicious?

Just a couple months ago we told you about a Huffington Post blogger who decided to put Joseph Lieberman in blackface. And now yet another liberal blogger is dipping into the burnt cork, this time to mock CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. (Hat tip to Rachel’s Tavern.)

And check out his lame defense of his “politically incorrect” act. Gimme a break.

When are people going to realize that there’s nothing new or edgy about racism? I can’t believe people are still using this lipstick-on-a-pig tactic of referring to racism as “political incorrectness.”
