"Fucking Tremendous"

Let's Talk About: Reclaiming Blackface

I have a habit of adding complete and total strangers on my facebook. In fact, I have around 2,000 friends on my Kat Blaque facebook account. Most of which are people within the gay night life scene of New York City. I’ve met a lot of very interesting people this way and made some lasting…

I feel like reclamation can be misguided, but at the same time, it can be empowering. As to whether this is either, I can’t really say.

I’ve seen very many Mexican-American folks like myself embrace luchadores, mariachis, and overly-Catholic imagery to a point where it is subversive and a little cartoonish. That being said, I’m not sure how much power it takes away from stereotypes.

Reclaiming blackface is not really something I feel very comfortable drawing comparisons to, because I am not Black. But Black folks wearing blackface isn’t terribly new, and I know it was a way that Michael Jackson would disguise himself when he was younger (he’d also wear a giant false beard) so he could go mostly undetected at concerts.

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill. 

Capitalism is inhumane.

So. I’m going to start recording a podcast (again) very soon. I just need a mic. And a co-host. And time.

This is never going to happen.

Because under capitalism I am forced to sell my labor in order to subsist.
