Reminds me of a white co-worker who liked to imitate Richard Prior and some of his N word expressions. A black co-worker tried to tell him that, if he repeated that enough he might get hurt. He could not understand the difference between Prior and himself saying the lines. Back during the GFC and its immediate aftermath I used to read firedoglake for her take. I was, at that time, unaware of her larger political involvement and would never have guessed she had been so blind and insensitive as to appear in black face. I wonder what Bill was really thinking - "Oh, shit!"? I always thought he, at least, had more political sense than to pull such a stunt himself.
