White outrage about Will Smith’s slap is rooted in anti-Blackness. It’s inequality in plain sight | Tayo Bero | The Guardian


So much ‘White’ indignation about a slap, but more than likely more to do with who did it and where.

The Oscars are still run, by and large by oldish white men who are unable or don’t wish to understand the ‘black’ point of view. Then there is the black indignation of a black man showing his emotions on a World stage, defending his wife and thereby, giving the ‘whites’ fodder to support their inclinations that black men and violence go together, rather than they supporting Will’s intention of supporting his wife from abuse from another black man, a black man insulting another black person, just for a ‘cheap laugh’.

Yes, Will, maybe did over react, but emotions and the love for his wife is strong and why should he condone an insult to his wife.

In this day and age, lavatorial humour should be outlawed and those who still perform it should be punished.
