Blackface Vs. Drag: A tutorial in morality for people raised by sociopaths and serial killers.

Dear Mary Cheney,

It has been bought to my attention by that you have taken to Facebook in search of your soul. Allow me to assist you in your quest to become human by understanding why Blackface is offensive to Americans, while Drag is embraced.

Blackface is unacceptable in our society
because it was created in an environment
where black people were not welcome,
and was done specifically to humiliate black people
and negate any notion of their beauty and nobility.

Drag is acceptable in our society
because it was created in an environment
where all people are welcome
and was done specifically to celebrate feminine power
and honor both men and women as magnificent, complex, and colorful human beings.

Hopefully this helps you understand life better.

You're welcome.

P.S. War is wrong, in case you are too stupid to figure that out too.

Good luck, Dollface.
