"Morning president's day. Hope you're enjoying the beautiful day today. And I'm kidding. It's a little rainy and cloudy out there. But we don't get that that often in Arizona. So it's exciting to have. Hey, have you seen this? You've heard about it for sure. Nationally, lots of stories about black face now. Right. Apparently in Virginia you can't get through college without putting on black face. I don't know what happened there. It's incredible. But we haven't seen much of that in the local press local stories until just recently. And I saw this in the is on a Republic. A man named Rishaad Thomas he wrote an op-ed in the Republic where he went into a local restaurant for for a holiday party. And it was one of the restaurants that have a lot of pictures on the walls, you know, the small historic looking pictures on the walls some of them, you know, they make it look like it's their old family members, and that kind of thing and he noticed one on the wall there of about eight or ten men in old clothes, this is there's an old looking picture with with black stuff all over their faces. And he looked at it and thought initially why why is there a picture of guys in black face up on here? And he asked one of the waitresses to speak to the manager ended up speaking with an owner one of the owners of the restaurant who came over and said, let me talk to the other owners let me find out what's going on. Mr Thomas asked him to take it down. And. And the dealer said, no. So I thought I'd bring him on the phone with me today. And give him an opportunity to explain what happened here and in what the outcome was. Let's talk to now Rashad Thomas here in Phoenix. And Mr Thomas, thanks for joining us here on KTAR. Good morning. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. They've taken some time on this holiday on this holiday morning. So help me understand real quick. You went into this restaurant. You saw this picture on the wall? You thought it was men in black face. You spoke to the owner, and you ask them to take it down. And they initially said they went and looked into it. Right. And they they found out what? They Google there and said that it was a picture of coal miners. Yes. All right. And knowing that now as you look at the picture, you can say, okay, I get that. Now. It's it's coal miners coming out with the black soot from coal on on their face in you acknowledge now that is in fact, what this is a picture of right? It's a bunch of guys budget coal miners with the sit on their face. Right. Well, let's start from the beginning. Because I think many people when they read it. They I. My conclusion was I interpreted them them and black face, which is incorrect. It is completely incorrect. So as an artist there's some concern when you're looking at a photograph or any piece of our so initially somebody you see a pitcher you say what's your initial response in that takes four steps. Description analysis interpretation and judgment. So after I saw the initial my initial response was oh that looks like black face. But that wasn't the niche that wasn't my first step. I saw their faces. I saw their clothes. I saw the woman in the corner, and she was wearing a white dress which was a contrast to the black and the gray that I saw in the photo and through my eyes as black artists that was my second step. I was logically saying, okay. This looks like a black face and my conclusion oh. Oh, maybe the best interests of the customers because there was some other folks that had mentioned it to the owner. And I don't know the race. I said, okay. This is something that would probably be best to take down. And when we're talking about diversity and equity, right? And so through my eyes as black artists. That's where the second. Mr. Mr Thomas. I gotta stop here for a second. I understand you looked at it. And thought you saw men in black face tonight. I understand that looking at the picture that that certainly a conclusion someone could come to. But you have since learned that. In fact, it is not men in black face. It's men is coal miners who were coming out of the mind and had black suit on their face. Right. Okay. So wait now in the third step. I did was before I even left the restaurant. I saw that. It was I knew that. It was coal miners coming out of the minds and such. Actually, it was coal miners during nineteen twelve during a strike for better wages. So that was my conclusion before I left the restaurant. So before you left the restaurant, you knew it was a picture of coal miners with soot on their face. But you still ask the owner to take the picture down one. No, I did not. I said most folks say why do you complain in not presenting any conclusion or any suggestions, right? My my three suggestions in the end of that was the owner take it down the owner present some type of educational peace, which I learned a lot from just looking at the photo in my experience. And then the owner can take it leave it up and those were the three options I present in opposite. But you conclude your up at and I'm reading it. Now, I think the photograph should be taken down. I said in the best interest of the people of the customers. Yes. You should take it down. But again that was through the logic of a black artist. Not the ultimate conclusion that I had. So basically we both. We basically agree. We just took two different paths to get to that conclusion. All right. So the part of your op Ed that I thought was interesting as you said who determines what's offensive and the question, I guess is in this instance, is is it the the owner of the restaurant among the picture, or is it you or other guests who may find the picture offensive even even knowing that it's not black face. So do you think that the owner of the restaurants should take down the picture? I think the owner should do. He should you know, he has the right to leave it up. He just why moment somebody knows he can't. I know. So I just presented a. A an opinion. He can take the opinion and do what he would like take it down put up a card or leave it up. Right. But but my question wasn't whether he had the right to leave it up or not. Of course, he does. The question is do you think he should take it down? I think my ultimate conclusion was I hope that he would put up a card that would describe the photograph. I think it would be great for the customers of all races and backgrounds to understand that photograph to that. People didn't think it was black face. Exactly. And let me ask you want to move on to this. You started you wrote that in the Republican you put your Email address in there. And you got a lot of responses, and and some of them were kind of nasty weren't they? You where did you did? You don't want to go into all these. But they were really they're rude and crude and their offensive even what they wrote to you did you correspond or try to have a conversation with any of the people who wrote to you in such insulting way. No, I did not. And I'll tell you something from doing radio here in the valley for a long time. I get a lot of nasty Email people. You'll hear me say something I don't like or that. They don't like and they get upset, and and send off the nastiest Email, and what I found is if I write back and say, I'm sorry, you feel that way. Thank you for listening. I hope you'll try me another time. The response. I get is a completely different person. They reply it's almost as if I took away that that veil of anger that they have. And they realize I'm just a person I'm not I'm not somebody here, insulting them. I'm just a person with a different opinion and one hundred percent of the time the hate and the vitriol goals away. And they actually appreciate the fact that even responded, so that's why I was wondering if you tried to do that. Well, eight hundred plus emails, I would probably be sitting there for the last at least for the week trying to respond, maybe. Respond to the US twenty. And I did experience that I share with them. The logic of how just like I did in the beginning, my logic. And they did either not respond or they responded in that tone of oh, this is a human. He obviously has emotions and he has a logic of why ended up where he was. Well, that's good. I'm glad at least there's some some ability of.

"And they're dancing on the rooftop. And while they're dancing. There's they they head up the chimney, right? And their faces get covered in soot. Right. That's what happens. Well, because there was a chimney in their faces covered in soot from the chimney. That's black face and not acceptable. That's actually not black face. As as I see it. Now, maybe somebody has a bit of knowledge about the script and said, oh, see here's what they were trying to emulate. She's there. There's a whole chimney thing. It's soot from the chimney. Don't be silly. And you might say to yourself. Tony you're stretching why in the world is this a story. I take you to Rashad Thomas gong to January twenty eight th two thousand nineteen days ago. Out of as e central. This is a story out of Phoenix. Arizona. A few weeks ago your rights, I attended a holiday party the downtown Phoenix restaurant, and I walked around to view, the photographs on the wall. And I saw someone that I saw a photo that caught my attention. The photo was of coal miners with blackened faces they've been working in the coal mines. They were covered with. They got out of the coal mines. They had a beer. I asked a Latina and a white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners. After after work, then they step back. And then said, oh, no, it's it's men in black face. And this guy complained to the restaurant that the photograph was offensive. You wanting to find the fence doesn't make something offensive and a history of American which includes coal miners and photos of them is not mocking you if you're black not only do you have to want it. You have to tell everybody else around you. I think you should suffer for my inadequacies. The inadequacy is. You wanna see black face in something that clearly isn't you see the picture associated with Ralph north yearbook for med school. Yup. Ted danson? Doing black face in a costume with when he was dating. What be Goldberg absolutely, positively. No question about it. Although Ted Danson he still gets television shows 'cause I don't know. I don't know why someone has explained it to me. It's because of liberalism explains me how our. Ralph Northam he might still get to keep his job. But a little over a week ago. The Republican secretary of state of Florida had to resign because he was in a photo of black face. And it wasn't just black face. He was pretending in the photo to be a Hurricane Katrina survivor. He made himself look like a black woman surviving, Hurricane Katrina. It was out of control stupid. I rarely use the word. That's the only way to describe it. See those things are real. And we're all grownups, and we can recognize that say, no, we're not okay with that. You have a problem with the history of coal miners in America and think that the the photograph is offensive. Okay. You think that don't tell anybody? Now, I'm saying that no matter what your color is. Don't tell anybody because what's really offensive is. You think that because you have an opinion. Other people have to change. There is nothing wrong with a coal miner coming out of a coal mine. And there's nothing wrong with the photograph of that. To make the claim all that's black face is not to somehow say, look how woke you are is to say, look how ignorant you are. It's not all right. It's not all right to the side that you are offended by all things at all times. And you will find things to be offended by regardless of their historical input or perspective or. Connection. It's surreal it's ugly. Mary Poppins is black face. We simply know that is untrue. You've got some note from the script. I'm all ears..

"One thirty seven were making our way through a Wednesday edition of the show. I'm taking a very special phone call from a listener named Kirk Kirk. I understand you want to give a shout out to a good Samaritan. It was in Castle Rock trained to get gas from my vehicle, I'm a paraplegic in a wheelchair. And I pulled up to three different stations the help button and no answers. No answers. Finally, had a gentleman come up through the third station said if they wouldn't help me he would. So I just wanted to thank him very much. Oh, that's very nice. Where was the gas station? It was the Safeway station off Plumtree. Okay. Perfect and say, you know, what? There are good people in the world out there. Kirk. Can I ask you a question? How often does that happen to you that you pull up hit the button for assistance, and nobody comes out nine times out of ten. Wow. I wonder how many of those like people working in the gas station even know what the button with that bell means. I mean, I just had this feeling there inside going. What is that noise? What's happening because I bet that they don't get any training on that. There's even a stations that have call this number if you need assistance, and they'll tell you they're too busy inside to come out and help you. Wow. Wow. That's awful Kirk. I'm sorry man that that is just that's just not. That's not right. Well, I'm glad that. There was a kind man out there who was able to help you. And I making a mental note that if I ever see anyone into similar situation, I should not expect the gas station to help them. So I appreciate it. Thank you very much. No problem. Thanks kirk. Thank you. Yeah. You know, what everybody making note of that? Because I've never seen. Anyone pushed that I've never been in that position bright, I've never actually seen that occur. But if gas stations are not filling that need, we as civilized, people should be helping out people who need assistance. When my grandfather died, we didn't know that. My grandmother had never put gas in their car that was my grandfather's job. He took care of it. And this was right after like full-service gas stations in my hometown were really really on the way out. We're we're y was when I was a kid in the seventies. Everybody was full service. You pulled up thinking guy came running out got gas clean your windshield, all that stuff. But by the time, my grandfather passed away, I think there was maybe only one station in town that still did full service. And then when they did away with full service. My grandmother literally had no clue what to do just know didn't even know could not even fathom how to do this process, and she went to the gas station and was literally standing by her car with no clue what to do and some young kid who was probably fourteen or fifteen said, ma'am, do you need some help. And she said, well, I've never put gas in my car. My my husband did. That and he's passed away, and that could stood there and taught my grandmother how to put gas in the car, and it was just a really, and I didn't hear that story for a long time. I mean for years, she didn't tell me that story when she finally told me, I said, well that was really nice. And she said I was really surprised because he was probably sixteen years old, and he stood there and taught her how to put gas in her own car very kindly. So be aware of that stuff. Because that's one of those things that I just would not have even thought for a second. The gas stations were like, I don't have time to deal with you. That's a shame. I mean, that's a real shame. Man, if I was a gas station owner, I would I would sort of make that a priority. And I would advertise that we take that seriously. Because that's just wrong. I mean, that's really wrong. Speaking of wrong, listen to this column. Part of me. Thinks this guy cannot be real Rashad Thomas opinion contributor to the Zona central newspaper. Phoenix, arizona. Listen to this just listen. And of course, I have to read it in this particular voice a few weeks ago. I tend to the holiday party at downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around if either photographs on the wall, then a photograph caught my attention friend said it's coal miners at a pop after work. It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces I asked a Latino and a white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners that apo- after work, then they step back frowned and said, it's men in black faith. I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner, I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph the Thor yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other. Other owners and get back to me while leaving. I asked him how he spoke with the other owners and that by the way, that's the actual Mississippi. He had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with Dan. But mentioned Google said it's minors after work. Who determines what's offensive for me, the coal miners disappeared at a film honored for its artistic merit despite being the most racist propaganda films ever DWI Griffith's birth of a nation surfaces in which white actors appeared in black face. The white owner saw coal miners in the photograph. Therefore, it was not offensive fat. The photograph shows coal miners faces covered in soot. The context of the photograph is not the issue seriously straight up y'all he cannot he cannot he cannot be serious. He cannot be serious with this. He then goes on to give examples of actual people who've actually blacked their own faces out and puts it together with his photograph of coal miners after a day in the coal mines. I mean viewers cannot determine the intention of an artist's work. Art exposes societies blind spots, black faces only a glimpse of a larger issue. I I read this. And I thought I think this is why I have a headache right now. Because this cannot be real it. Just I have to read you the end though, because you really you have to just just hear me out at the downtown Phoenix restaurant. My concern that the photograph of men in black face was a threat to me and my face and voice. Ignored a business. Photograph of men with blackened faces culturally says to me white solely. It's as people like me are not welcome the operators of that downtown restaurant can choose to take the photograph. Dow leave it up or create a title card with an intention statement. No matter their decision, I think the photographs should be taken down sacrificing one image for the greater good. This guy is a freaking Nazi straight up. He is a freaking Nazi. And if we do not begin to understand what's our new mantra about people's feelings. Dave, I don't care. If I had been the business owner, I would have said, sir. This is obviously and the photograph, by the way is linked in the story. You can go look at it. It is beyond obvious that this is a photograph of men who have just spent their day underground doing the baking backbreaking work of digging coal out of little tiny caves, and they're sitting around having a beer and God forbid,.

"Aren't they remarkable Dan Virginia they're trying to outdo New York and you can vacuum the child's brain out shortly after birth? Kennedy. Can't you do I mean really why would they stop at birth? Why would they this artificial deadline? This threshold what if weeks later, in fact, there was this woman, and we played the audio at the time, I'm British television and one of their morning shows. It was BBC or ITN or whatever it was. Now, they had this woman on who is really really really pro choice as Democrats like to describe their their habit their religious blood, right pro-choice. And she said she literally said that a mother should be allowed to smother the baby in the cradle up until the age of two if the mother changes her mind and decides she doesn't want to raise the child anymore. She said this and there were gasps from the two, and it was a woman from the two women anchors. They were they were slack jawed. Hang there is saying are you serious, and she was. She was dead serious. And when I say dead serious, I'm being literal. So we're gonna we're gonna get into some of that. And also to your calls where at eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five CNN lying today. Well, come on. I mean, that's kind of redundant isn't it CNN lying about their big camera Harris townhall meeting. They're lying about the numbers the ratings the viewers. They've sliced and diced and spun and shopped and misled and deceived on their ratings in an effort to make a point that nobody cares about which is pretty amazing that they were just so liberally and freely fabricate misrepresent deceive over whether they got good ratings on their little camera. Harris fluffer our. How Pauling Jake tapper right? The he was the designated fluffer on that point. And that that moment in time. Yeah. Great stuff. So they lied about that we'll get we'll get to that. But this this whole thing is crazy and the border. I went and I found this poll again because the news media buried this poll, but a remarkable poll that came out a couple of weeks ago that showed that ninety percent of Americans believed that the border is either a crisis or a problem a seventy nine percent. That's nearly eighty percent for those who are math challenge that that's nearly four out of five of us believe that the border is a problem or a crisis, and the majority of that seventy nine percent say it is in fact, a crisis. The news media has dropped that poll because it is inconvenient to the democratic party's efforts. Speaking of the Democratic Party. There was a lot of a lot of crazy. Lot of crazy going on out there with these people. The Santa Barbara City College discontinuing the pledge of allegiance because one member there. This is a and I use the term member advisedly said that it represents the pledge of allegiance represents white nationalism. White nationalism is what he said he objects the phrase one nation under God, also because their Satan worshipping, Oregon, harvesting blood drenched ghouls from hell that make Islamists. Look like the Red Cross the first amendment only protects freedom of speech and religion. It also expressly prohibits laws that establish religion. Thanks, bright. Boy, there's a as I actually I'm I'm embarrassed to say, I think at this moment. Anyway, I attended Santa Barbara City College. I went to center, I was a student at Santa Barbara City College. Let me say they have a really nice perch, and the people I won't specify gender. Very good looking and and good looking women. They're good looking women. There are a lot of good looking. But we'll we'll get to that. So they want to do. With the pledge of allegiance Democrats on Capitol Hill want to remove so help me God from the pledge that you take because now they don't worship anyone. But the party the party rules and all this, and the can you can you abort the baby up until the fourth trimester. Yes. Yes. You can during birth. What about moments after birth? Can you aborted it? Why stop? I mean. Honestly, why this silly artificial deadline of actually giving birth. Why if you're gonna if you're gonna kill it? You should be a little more elastic more a little more liberal with it. I think there and speaking of Democrats and they're insanity. And of course, the majority of the children will be minorities. We'll be Brown now be Brown and black babies that will be exterminated and the Democrats will harvest their organs, which they literally do I saw something recently where prolife person mentioned, and you harvest the organs and this shrieking old liberal woman said that's been debunked. I guess she watches MSNBC or she thinks it's been d. Debunked. Maybe she doesn't know what the word debunked means that seems to be the case an awful lot of the time. They don't know what the words mean they use the words, but they don't know what they mean. Here's a democrat. So you just some democrat side stories here because as these these are amazing, a Phoenix Arizona restaurant says that they have well, they have a photo on their wallet said picturing. They got pictures on the walls of the restaurant. It's a restaurant and they have a bar, and there's a picture on the walls. It looks like it's an eighty year old picture or something like that. And it's a group of coal miners at a bar and joying what appears to be bass ale. I don't where there might be from England. It might actually be from England and their coal miners and their southern clothing and their faces are covered in coal dust because their coal miners. And and there's one woman sitting there. She's not a coal miner. I know that because he can see her face in her clothes, and they're not all black group of men one. Two three four five six seven men who are coal miners and they're in a bar and they're covered with coal dust. Okay. Well, the piece was written by Russia. Thomas who's an opinion contributor at Arizona central. Now. This is a big newspaper, but they just call themselves. Arizona central now, which is foolish. They've stripped themselves of their own newspaper brand. He he writes who determines what is offensive the photo in downtown Phoenix restaurant raises a key question. Now, it raises a key question about your mental health. Rashad Rashad Thomas has some mental problems. He writes a few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party Christmas party. But a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view, the photographs on the wall. He wanted to see if anything would offend him. And sure enough something did then a photograph caught my attention friends said it's coal miners at a pub after work because that's what it is. That's why the friend said that that's what it is. It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces at a pub after work. I asked a Latin x I love this. Remember, it's it's a Latina cts. What is it? This is Latin woman who doesn't recognize her gender or doesn't know what gender. She is. Or doesn't know whether she's a person on a planet in a solar system. They don't know anything anymore. It's it's she's Latina cts Latino Latina 'cause if few sneeze in Honduras, your H for a Latina cts Latina artists friends said it's called minor to pub- photograph miners were black. I asked a Latina and a white woman. See how he's look at. We look what he's built in here. He's ask any white men because white men have a lot of answers. I don't know if you've been walking on the moon and stuff we got bored with that in the nineteen seventies. We know a lot of things where Karen cancer things like that. You might want to ask I asked Latina that means the presumably Latin woman who is non binary gender confused, meaning completely screwed up in the head. So he asked somebody who is completely screw up and they had like him and a white woman. Why is there a race of the woman? Important. I want to know that you're because you're racist. Now. I remember, that's what Rashaad Thomas I asked a Latina cts and a white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners had a pub after work. Well, I don't know. It's a Latina 'cause you gotta take her. She's a woman you got to believe the women. I saw that in the papers awhile back, then that was all off that whole believing women thing that's all off. That was just for cabinet. We don't believe women anymore. Democrats. I've still where I've always been I've been like a normal person over here, then they stepped back. He typed frowned and said it's men in black face. He's no longer quoting them. There are no longer any Croatian marks. I asked the waitress to speak to the manager. Can you believe what a pain in the ass? This guy is what a petty tinpot racist. If she'd be wearing a pointed black hood instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. So instead of the manager you've got the owner and the identifies him by race because he's a racist. And all these seasons rice so much for Martin Luther King's vision of a world where you're judged by the content of your character, not the color of your skin. He's a racist. Right. He he's a bigot. And and that's plane for anyone to say, I explained to him why the photograph was offensive while you explain why it was offensive to you. And nobody else evidently someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before there was one other mentally ill person who. Through yet. The photograph remained on the wall. He thinks that because he objects to a picture of coal miners that the picture of coal miners should be taken down because in his twisted, tortured, tormented victimized mind in his racist mind. This must be destroyed because they burn books. Now. They burn words one word at a time one phrase at a time it saves time. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me while leaving. I asked him if he had spoke with the other owners, I think he means to say spoken with the other is just an editorial writer at the newspaper there. He had not spoken with them. He corrected in the next sentence. But mentioned Google and said, it's coal miners after work. So he's look you're mentally ill. And the fact that the newspaper published this this insanity is really something. Then he asked the question. What determines what's offensive mummy? I got an answer to that question. Not you gang, not the most sensitive mental case. And Rashad Rashad Thomas needs help his friends need to intervene because he's unwell, and he's he could hurt himself or others really unconcerned for for me Rashad said, the coal miners disappeared, and the film honored for its are pissed merit despite being for the most racist propaganda film, ever w Griffiths birth of a nation. Nineteen fifteen surfaces in which white actors appear in black face. I gotta I gotta tell you about. You're you're really unwell. You're you're sick person. By the way, it was the liberal progressive democrat president Woodrow Wilson who is entombed in the National Cathedral. I should probably be removed. Who reintroduced the Ku Klux Klan to the United States of America by showing birth of a nation in the White House. It was the first film ever shown in the White House by the progressive democrat racists clan supporter, resurgence of the clan because of the democrat party Michael is shaking his head. There's more on the next line. This guy is something. The fact the fact he says the photograph shows coal miners faces covered in soot the context of the photograph is not the issue. It's not. Really the photograph. It's called he doesn't care whether they're call minors. You're you're mentally ill. And I also have you know, that the democrat party made you this way and you need to seek help. And and if you have any friends, which I doubt, I think your friends should intervene to try to save you from yourself. There is a TV show somewhere in the TV universe called empire. I don't think anybody's ever seen it. But there is an actor on empire. Who is a black guy. It's kind of a black cast TV show, mostly in black producer, and all that there's an actor there whose name is Jessie, not Jessie, but Jessie small it John was smaller jussie not Jesse smaller than jussie smollet. He has an amazing story to tell. He was in Chicago and terrible Trump supporting white racists attacked him recognizing him immediately, wrapped up in cold weather clothes in Chicago as the actor from this TV show, and they they knew that he was gay and they knew that he was gay and they attacked him. And you'll never believe. What happened next? In fact, let me say this again, you'll actually never believe what happened next because I don't wanna walk out a thin limbs here, but I think jussie smollet has a vivid imagination and has some mental problems too. And I'm going to get to that in a minute. But now people with mental problems go to the front of the line. I'm going to get to Jesse smell it in just a moment. He's a democrat. I'm just I don't know this for sure, but I bet every dollar ever made in my lifetime on this. You know with all the recent news about online security breaches, we've seen them.

I I have to make note of the fact that we are now living in an era when everyone is suggesting racial offense at everything everything there's an actual piece in the New York Times by of jangle Pollock Pels ner have no idea who this person is I guess that disappeared on page. See one of the New York edition today. Hey, his adjusters that Mary Poppins is about black face. I'm not kidding you. It's an actual thing. Here's what Daniel Pollack Pels new rights. Mary Poppins returns we've picked up four Oscar nominations last week is an enjoyable derivative. Film. It seeks to inspire our nostalgia for the innocent fancies of childhood as well as the holidays at the first Mary Poppins film concert for many adult viewers part of the new phones style Jehovah is bound up in a black face performance. Tradition. That persists throughout the Mary Poppins cannon from yelled Travers is book to Disney's nineteen sixty four at uptaken with disturbing echoes in the studio's newest take on the material nary Poppins returns. Eight. Now, you may be thinking maybe racking memory this point, Mary Poppins, where was the Al Jolson singing mammy part of Mary Poppins where the black pace black-faced part of of Mary Poppins. Like I remember the penguins popping into Trump paintings. And I remember the guy who's floating around on the ceiling. But I don't remember the part where they all put on black makeup, and then in derogatory fashion attempted to mock black people don't remember that weird. I watched it like a week ago with my daughter. I remember Eddie of those things where is the black face. You're not gonna believe this is so great. The columnist says one of the more indelible images from the nineteen sixty four is Mary Poppins blacking up. He's talking about the section where Mary Poppins takes coal dust and put on her face when the magical nanny played by Julie Andrews, accompanies, her young charges, Michael J banks up their chimney, her face gets covered in soot. But instead of wiping it off she gave me powders her nose, and cheeks even blacker then she leaves the children on a dancing. Exploration of London rooftops of Dick Van Dyke shooting chimney sweep, Bert. This might seem like an innocuous Connex seen. If Travers is novels didn't associated chimney sweeps blackened faces with racial caricature. Wait, why now so if you watch the movie, and you didn't read the book or you read the book, and you skipped right over the part with racism, then I'm supposed to take away from Mary Poppins putting on soot. So that she looks like a chimney sweep that she's actually making fun of black people who aren't in the movie and supposed to take offensive this for some reason. And not only that we're supposed to take offence at the new movie the new movie why because Mary Poppins returns set in the nineteen thirties seems to offer a more racially inclusive vision of banks's London. But. The key sequence in the film plays into a much more fraught history from a suppressed part of Mary Poppins is passed. In Travers is first Mary Poppins novel published in nineteen thirty four a magic, compass transport children around the world, including a stop where they meet scantily clad negro lady, Dan's laying a tiny black picking any with nothing on it at all picking any has long been seen as an offensive term for black child is what the columnist says she addresses, Mary Poppins and minstrels I elected invokes the convention of blacking up. My becomes very why babies you all lose a little black a little bit black boot polish on them. I don't remember this part of the book at all I should be forgiven for that. I read it when I was like ten I think this episode was so controversial the book was banned in the San Francisco public library. And then Travers had to do a revision in the nineteen Eighty-one addition. And apparently there was a bird that pops up. Right. A hyacinth macaw that speaks English. Now, you remember that Mary Poppins has bird in the original Mary Poppins movie. Well, now the bird pops up in Mary Poppins returns. So the bird that was originally in racist sequence from a book in nineteen thirty three that was removed over the course of fifty years did not appear in the original movie. And now peers in this movie having nothing to do with race is a racist reference. I'm gonna go lighten up, folks. If you watch the new Mary Poppins movie, and you came away with racist. You might have a problem. But that doesn't the only ridiculous accusation of black face today is an opinion piece. Rashad Thomas in the Arizona Republic. A here's what it says a few weeks ago. I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view, the photographs on the wall. Then photograph caught my attention friend said it's coal miners at for work. It wasn't photograph of coal miners with blackened faces I asked Ayla tanks and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work, then they step background. Instead, it's men in black face. I asked the waitress speak with manager. Instead, I spoke with the white restaurants owner, I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before yet the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me while leaving. I asked him if he had spoken with the other owners in not spoken with them. But mentioned Google said, it's coal miners after work. Well, that's because it's a picture of coal miners after work like I'm looking at the picture is a picture of coal miners after work, but because this person looks at a picture of coal miners, and so black face the picture should be removed. Says frequently I enter art galleries, and I am not represented in the art which leads to uneducated curation for for exhibitions while shopping. I have ignored because it is. It is assumed I'm unable to purchase anything inches is based on a stereotype lack face caricatures stereotypes of black people at the downtown Phoenix restaurant. My concern that the photograph of men in black face was a threat to me and my face and voice were ignored the operators of that downtown restaurant can choose to take the photograph down leave it up or create a title card with intention statement. No matter their decision, I think the photograph should be taken down sacrificing one image for the greater good. So now if you put up a photo that has nothing to do with black day since of coal miners who are covered in coal dust, which is black. Now, we're supposed to take down that picture because you misinterpreted the picture. This is the same argument that folks are constantly having over particular words in the English language that sound like racial slurs, but actually are not racial slurs. And people will use particular words, say the words because then media matters will take it out of context and suggests I'm using the racial slur, which I am absolutely not. But that's how stupid we have become. We've seen cases of people lose their jobs for using words that are actually not even remotely related to racial slurs, but somebody interpreted as a racial slur. And then they lose their jobs. This is all insanity. If you've got nothing better to do than go around to local restaurants, looking for pictures of people covered in coal, and then suggesting the black face being is you.
