Hey Hey It’s Saturday – Blackface Incident with Harry Connick Jr

bit.ly – Here’s the skit that caused an uproar in the media in Australia and supposedly around the world. A parody tribute to the Jackson Five by a group of specialist doctors (who performed the exact same act 20 years ago as medical students)that was supposedly racist. When you contemplate that 1 was Lebanese and two were Indian, it’s difficult to claim one more example of white racism. I believe Harry should lighten up a bit in fact, as totally no malice was ever intended. Enjoy this with an open mind. I feel the act sucked huge time, but it positive wasn’t what I would call racist. The dictionary defines racism as “the prejudiced view of 1 race’s superiority over one more”, which this didn’t show at all…(.I guess HCJ forgot all about movies such as “White Chicks” (really funny!!), Soul Man, White Men Cannot Jump (talk about a racial stereotype!))
