Bill O’Reilly?

Well, I don’t think he’s stupid.

But when you’ll vote for evil, just as long as it’s the lesser of two what do you expect to get except that the greater evil feels empowered to be even more evil and the lesser evil says- “Hey, we can be as evil as we want to be as long as we’re not quite as evil as them.”

The United States is a nation of cowards and morons and the proof is that we allow this condition to persist.

‘Dear White People’ Director Justin Simien: ‘Closed Cultural Loops’ Cause Blackface Parties

Partygoers don baggy pants, throw on their finest grills and even paint their skin a dark hue in pursuit of a good time and playful parody. While these parties attract fiery criticism nearly each time they take place, they seem to be pervasive within the university party scene.

Director Justin Simien, who explores the complexity of the black experience at an elite university in his upcoming satirical film “Dear White People,” weighed in on the controversial practice in a HuffPost Live interview on Tuesday.

“It happens in these closed cultural loops, and it happens when people are not necessarily trying to make black people feel bad,” Simien said. “It is a combination of being ironic, celebrating and kind of being ignorant to the experience of the other.”

Ultimately, Simien concluded that blackface parties are a manifestation of a lack of understanding among racial groups.

“It comes down to the fact that we as a culture are so unwilling to see ourselves in people who don’t look like us,” Simien exaplined. “If we found a way to be a little bit more open in that respect, they would have enough black friends and say, ‘You probably shouldn’t throw this party on Martin Luther King Day, and you probably shouldn’t Instagram about it because Gawker will pick it up and this will be a blight on this college campus.'”

What was I saying about morons?  Oh.  Yeah.
