Harry Connick Jr. Schools Clueless Australians About Blackface

Harry Connick Jr. appeared as a guest judge on the Australian television show Hey Hey Hey it’s Saturday and spoke out against a shameless blackface performance that was billed as a “tribute” to Michael Jackson by the “Jackson Jive.”

Speaking not as a white American but as an American, Connick expressed his disapproval to the blackface jive saying,  “we’ve spent so much time trying to not make black people look like buffoons that when we see something like that, we take it really to heart…”

We can’t figure out what’s more outrageous -that the host apologizes to Connick for offending him (not black people), that the entire Jackson Jive troupe are now (supposedly) highly educated and are doctors, or that Jive did the same routine on the same show 20 years ago AND WON!

Hating and acting violently toward people based on skin color, based on melanin is insane.

    In short, I hope that cousins, Pook an’ ’em don’t catch these fools in an alley.
