Jasmyne's continued Liquor prohibition

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 9-71Activist Jasmyne Cannick is once again condemning the work of Charles Knipp and his controversial "blackface" alter ego, Shirley Q. Liquor. And while we are admittedly a bit troubled by a couple of Jasmyne's thoughts (we gays "usurp the Black Civil Rights Movement’s strategies and language" -- seriously, Jasmyne?) she does put out some interesting food for thought regarding the casual acceptance of racist sentiments. So go check out her piece over on Bilerico:

My Apology to Black Women for Gay America and Charles Knipp [Bilerico]

Jasmyne can be controversial, divisive, and she certainly knows how to ruffle feathers. She also makes people think. We hope she never quiets her voice.

Your thoughts

casual acceptance is right. i will never forget last year when i was talking with friends in a gay chatroom, some guy who I had never even met said i looked like a "tar baby."

it was very rude and what was even ruder was the sentiments of some folks who said i overreacted when i read him the riot act.

I find SQL AND Jasmyne Cannick to be offensive.
