I actually dont have a problem with this. It looks like a costume party. I doubt he had any racist intent.

Although, I have been wrong before..

It's brownface. Why can't you get anything right?

Not sure what the intent was but it looks like he was dressed as a genie at a costume party.

Some years ago we had a local judge go to a Halloween party with blackface makeup, an afro wig, a striped jail jumpsuit and some leg irons. That didnt go over well. I dont recall the exact outcome but it wasn't good.

Probably, no need to change your skin color though ....

I doubt he had any racist intent.

Does it need racist intent?

Trump puts on orangeface every day. Oompa loompas everywhere are offended by this, but you don't see threads about that.

Like most of the world did.

You need to get off this site once in awhile and check out what's going on in the world. Might cheer you up.

You are an idiot ... you know nothing of photography and what technically is happening in the photo.

You need to get off this site for awhile, you know nothing and continue to show it. It might help your sex life too.

Aw. That's so cute. Mackris blabbing about someones else not knowing what's going on in a photo, like only an "expert" could really tell and everyone else that looks at that photo and draws any conclusion is an idiot.

Truth - it's Mackris coming to Null's defense. That whole "do something to take the edge off" thing must have worked!
And Null flagging it "newsworthy" - that bromance is in full bloom!

Congrats!

I wonder if the two of them swapped DNA that's why Nullifidian is the way he is today??

And here's the usually worthless Yav to rescue Unitard...and the peanut gallery-Mohr--chimes in with nothing, as usual.

Whatever you say, troll. I'm feeling bad for NULLI and you as well for having to jump to each other's defense over what started as a comment about a photo, flagging each other's posts. How cute.

'what technically is happening?" WTF is wrong with you?! No need to be an expert in photography. Most of the world saw exactly what I did and memes were all over the internet.

Maybe you never get off of this site. It appears that's something you and NULLI share besides being worthless trolls who flag each other's posts.

--worthless trolls who flag each other's posts.

Is that the best you have? Who have you flagged today? Towering "intellects" like Danni, Mohr, Chief, OWS, Headhurts, etc?

Take a look in the mirror, troll: www.westelm.com

For God's sake, get out in the world. All you do all day and night is bitch at people here. What you consider 'zingers' we only laugh at because they're so juvenile and petty. You and a couple others here have emotional issues to spend most of your time here trolling and make disparaging remarks about DR members. I pity you for the smallness of your life.

PS NULLIFIDIAN - this is a political site. People like me and others spend most of our time here commenting on, discussing, or bitching about the politics of the day or whatever other 'topics' there are. Try it sometime. It might prove to be more fulfilling for you than trolling and bitching at DR members. At least you'd be saying something of worth.

Well, that's all the proof I need. It's got to be true!
