Why is it we need Al Roker to explain this to people?

Wait, that’s not from The Onion??

I like how he says explicitly…

“I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” he tweeted. “I can be Doc Brown, and I wear the outfit and wig and not change my skin color if you’re white, you can be President Obama if you want. Just don’t color your skin!”

Yeah. This kind of willful white ignorance is mighty, mighty willful.

How one can care SO much about not being “allowed” to do blackface that they are actively looking for and socme-blasting “hypocritical counterexamples,” yet not care enough to even get a wikipedia level of context is just not believable. The Reverse Racism kayfabe of self-conscious counter-outrage is so fucking transparent.

And he looks great, too!

Dylan Dreyer looks awesome as Marty McFly too. And again I would ask those idiots who trolled Roker…what no outrage that a female dressed up as a male character without first getting a sex change?!

The stupid is strong in those people.
