Racism is hating on a other race. When I watched the video I didn’t hear him say “all black should go to hell!”

Actually Racism is described as ” the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”

You know…like inky black skin. Beady eyes. Wild hair. Big lips. Mammy persona…
Huh. I’m guessing the words “Darky iconography” mean nothing to you.

This ‘banana’ doesn’t seem to grasp that racism is more than just outright statements of hatred towards a people just because of the color of their skin. Racism has many forms and can manifest itself in many ways other than just blatantly stating “all black[s] should go to hell.”

The fact of the matter is black face is racist - there is a reason it is considered racist and Onion never takes into account the context and history of the practice to understand WHY it is racist. He instead looks to focus on the juvenile argument of “but they’re doing it too.” You know, how he tries to frame the issue to include white face as a means to defend the use of black face.

I swear, it’s almost as if his fans choose to remain ignorant about these subject matters much like Onion.

He didn’t mean it that way you think he looked up black face and thought it would be funny to do that. No he just did it not knowing what he was doing wrong

He’s been told before about that action being problematic and he insisted on doing it again and even making a video defending the action. Clearly you don’t understand, or you don’t want to understand that he did this with ill-intent.

Sorry to have to break it to you, but Onion is a racist - and it goes beyond just his defense and use of black face. This goes down to his actual views on the races, something he made very clear in an old post on his old forum.  Here, some evidence to look over:

Pls stop with the onision hate I’m honestly don’t care about your proof I just find him funny that’s all and I’ll stand by my opinion and you’ll stand by yours and that’s that.

So your argument now is that you wish to remain ignorant about this person while mounting up a defense for him? So you’re not in the least bit interested in being intellectually honest.

Sorry to break it to you but your opinion is wrong - black face is racist, Onion is racist, and there isn’t much of a defense against these claims that can really change these demonstrable truths.

If you’re not the least bit interested in the opposition to your arguments then maybe you shouldn’t be posting to a public forum such as Tumblr. Just sayin’.

OKAY, LISTEN UP;

onisionisproblematic:

If Onision saved your life, helped you with your mental illness, depression, self harming behaviors… fantastic! I am so happy you were able to get help with those things through a youtuber and that he has helped lead you to a better path…

But that is NO EXCUSE to undermine the negative experiences of other people. That is no excuse to say that someone’s experience means nothing because Onision helped you. The fact of the matter is, while Onision may have helped people, he has also hurt and hindered a lot of other people… and just because he has helped YOU does not give you the right to talk down and belittle someone because he DIDN’T help THEM.

The things that help and hinder individuals in that sense are NOT black and white… Onision’s statements may have helped you, you may think they’ve saved you and maybe they have… but that does NOT EVER invalidate the hindrance it has put on many others. Not ever. And I think it’s time fans of Onision, people he has helped realize that.

I am so happy that you found someone who helped you with whatever you struggled with… but do not use that as a tool to royally shit all over the negative experiences, the hurt, the betrayal, the SHAME other people have genuinely felt BECAUSE OF ONISION.

Have I made myself quite clear?

I’m not dumb I understand what blackface is. Its not back then anymore where black people can’t go to certain bathrooms. It’s 2014 I think we need to move on from the pass.

The pass.

I don’t think ‘bananas’ actually understand any of the arguments leveled against Onion - especially ones that involve an understanding of evidence and context. This is kind of pathetic.

Yeah, it’s 2014, but that doesn’t mean that racism no longer exists. If OP is dumb enough to actually believe that racism is no longer an issue in America, today, then I’ve got a few bridges to sell ‘em.

I know racism still going on

So then how can you justify and defend black face when the context is still that of mocking black people as being inferior? Why even make the comment about the year and that we need to move on from the “pass” if racism is still a large issue, and black face perpetuates that issue?

So, since when was it socially acceptable to mock someone for their skin tone? Because last time I checked, comedy actually had a punchline outside of “it’s cus’ I’m black ya’ll”.

You don’t know the history of Blackface, otherwise you wouldn’t have made a clearly ignorant statement about it staying in “the pass”.
