Jasmyne's continued Liquor prohibition
Activist 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:
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.
*An example of Shirley Q. Liquor posted after the jump:
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.
