The View’s Joy Behar cowardly avoids addressing her “blackface” costume

Inevitably ABC’s PR team will get around to creating a response for Joy. It’s her SOP.

From Fox News: ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar remained stone silent Thursday regarding old footage of her donned in blackface that was unearthed this week as similar images have caused outrage and derailed careers.

Behar did not address the situation during the first episode of “The View” to air after her controversial decades-old image caused an uproar on social media. ABC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Footage of Behar dressing up as a “beautiful African woman” was resurfaced by TheWrap media editor Jon Levine on Wednesday amid a series of blackface scandals making national headlines. The image of a 29-year-old Behar wearing makeup intended to darken her skin was aired on “The View” back in 2016 when the panel discussed the resurgence of naturally curly hair.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked a the time, “Joy, are you black?”

“I was so cute,” Behar said in the 2016 clip. “Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar then explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair. “Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

“I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016,” Jezebel’s Kara Brown wrote after the 2016 segment.

While the 2016 segment didn’t spark much outrage, NBC famously cut ties with Megyn Kelly last year for pondering aloud whether dressing in blackface for Halloween could be acceptable. Media watchdogs quickly hit Twitter to compare Behar’s situation to what ended Kelly’s time at the Peacock Network.

Last week, Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam offered an apology after a photograph emerged on his medical school yearbook page that featured a man in blackface and another in a KKK robe. He reversed course the next day, claiming he wasn’t in that photo but did admit to wearing blackface when dressing up as Michael Jackson for a costume contest. Countless prominent politicians on both sides of the aisle have called for him to step down as a result.

Democratic Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who had previously called on Northam to resign, released a statement Wednesday that he also wore blackface in college.

Late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, who have both also worn blackface on comedy skits without backlash, have skirted the Virginia Democrats’ blackface scandals in their late-night monologues.

Racist much? HBO actress says at Emmys that she's "rooting for everybody black"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMHyYXWViAs
Issa Rae is an actress, writer and director. She created the HBO show Insecure. Never heard of her nor her show. Apparently she’s popular within the Hollyweird community.
Now she’s popular for being racist, too.
Imagine the outcry if a white person said they were rooting for white people.  But she’ll face no consequences. Liberals love their double standards.

Obama and the Left Silent On Vicious Racial Assault in McDonald's

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAfsR58ocXY]
Last week, on April 22, two female customers brutally assaulted another customer in a McDonald’s fast food restaurant in Baltimore County, Maryland. The attackers are black. The victim, 22-year-old Chrissy Polis, is white and reportedly a transgender.
McDonald’s employees stood by, doing nothing. Worse still, the video was shot by an employee who can be heard laughing.
Eventually, a good Samaritan stepped in to stop the attack. But the vicious attackers punched her too. Vicki Thoms, 55, told 11 News:

“I think it’s terrible. I think it’s inhumane. When they started really hurting her, to the point where I thought she was going to die, that’s when I decided someone needed to do something. I kept screaming, ‘Stop. Get off of her.’ And they wouldn’t stop. One of the girls said to me, ‘It’s none of your (expletive) business,’ and hit me in the face.”

One of the attackers, 18-year-old Teonna Monae Brown, has been charged with first degree assault and second degree assault. Her co-attacker, 14, is being charged as a juvenile.
Prosecutors said they are “considering” possible hate crime charges “based on sexual orientation.” It’s never a “hate crime” if blacks assault non-blacks! — as the ethnic Chinese community in Oakland, California know only too well. A year ago, two black teenagers brutally attacked and killed a middle-aged Chinese immigrant man, Tian Sheng Yu, at 18th St. and Telegraph Avenue.
Here’s Victor Davis Hanson’s comment:

“The past week a sensationalized video of a transgendered female in extremis went viral on the blogosphere. Two young African-American women beat her senseless at a McDonald’s restaurant. The African-American staff is shown in the clip as mostly passive bystanders to the brutality. Yet I know this nationally viewed abhorrence is not a teachable moment about much of anything. Unlike the Professor Gates mix-up, this public spectacle will not be used by the president to warn us about the wages of incivility or the need for a new racial tolerance and understanding. Nor will there be, among the homosexual community, much of a national Matthew Shepard moment seeking to present the public beating as a symbol of a wider hatred of the sexually ambiguous among us. There is about as much chance of a Hollywood movie about the incident as there is of a sequel to Rendition. At best, we are to accept such violence as inevitable, as the powerless sometimes thrash out against the more privileged classes and races; at worst, these are the tragic wages of prior oppression that must be contextualized and constructed in the proper narrative of the centuries.”
