WTF??!!? In 2009 is Blackface the New Black? 

[Daily Show viewing link | Canadian Comedy Network viewing link.]

And while we're on the topic of Blackface (still?), check this out right here in my hometown at the local institute of 'higher' learning:


Four white students at the University of Toronto (U of T) decide to don Blackface and play the 'Jamaican Bobsled Team' for Halloween (with one Black student in 'Whiteface' as their coach, er... what??). C'mon, son! [Torontoist]

After (a more-than-appropriate) uproar, U of T hosts a Lesson on Blackface Town Hall meeting. [also via Torontoist]
