WTF is up with Whites Doing Blackface???

I don't get it. I really don't. I mean I really really really don't get it. What's extra special about this latest in mockery is that it's a Christian school that had adult staff participate in this utter nonsense. There are several places to check out the story about Riverdale Christian Academy reenacting slavery as their graduation party. Find out more here, here & here. The principal at Riverdale seems at this point to not find it a big deal and said that that acting out slavery is "not offensive." Well yes that's true I suppose that to other ignorant racists it's not offensive. Though if it were truly no big deal to Riverdale then why is their website currently unavailable?

I'd also like the school staff of supposed Christians to ask themselves: What would Jesus do?
If these people looked into their hearts I know the answer would not be this... Or a game of Catch the Runaway Slave. *sigh*
