Apr 23 - Photo of students hitting piņata sparks Facebook controversy
 

 

[pic - click to view]



A photo posted on Facebook showing a group of boys on the University of Memphis campus hitting a piņata shaped like a woman has gotten a lot of attention.

A papier mache hula girl is at the center of the controversy. The photo shows a group of African American grade-schoolers about to hit her.

"It didn't look right, just because of the social climate we're in right now," said University of Memphis student Veronica Birmingham.

Birmingham took the photo on campus Thursday. The piņata was part of an annual luau organized by the Residence Hall Council, to which school children are invited.

"How could somebody be so insensitive and not realize this might cause an issue?" asked Birmingham.

Birmingham sent the photo to a friend who posted it on Facebook.

"She said it blew up in seconds," said Birmingham. "Everybody was like, wow, how did this happen?"

Some on Facebook called it "reverse racism." Another commenter said, "somebody needs to be fired." Others thought the picture sent a message that it is OK to beat up women.

Not everyone is offended by the photo.

"I mean, really? I never would have thought anything like that until you brought it up," said University of Memphis student Mallory Gary. "They're just hitting a piņata, just having fun."

The controversy prompted the university's residence life director to issue a statement Friday, saying in part, "the photograph taken out of context may be disconcerting, but we want to a.ssure our community that no racial or gender animosity was intended."

Birmingham believes piņatas should, perhaps, not be made to look like people or animals.

the difference is that a lot of black women have low self-esteem and have been sh*tted on by both white people and black men themselves. White women with their long straight hair, pale skin, slender noses, and blue eyes are treated like goddesses by the media and the general population. Dark skinned women are hated, and a lot of black women are too busy trying to look like white women to learn to love their own features besides their fat a.ss. So of course there would be hysteria, because it would be another contribution to the idea that black women are less attractive and less wanted than white women.

except in reality it could be nothing more than kids playing -- such as what we see here -- yet you choose to infer racism and get upset over a kids game, claiming it's a reflection of media mistreatment of black women...? youre taking an otherwise legitimate theory to an absurd extreme

edit: what reppin da burghh said... what happened to beatin the sh*t out of a donkey

I think we should call this, "Reverse race card". For God's sake, white people nowadays complain more about blacks, mexicans, and minorities than minorities complain about whites.

People who have an issue with this are only upset because they live in fear of being accused of bigotry based on race. They look for a reason to complain, thinking this will restore some sort of balance and fairness in their world.

They also don't know what words mean, because reverse racism sounds stupid as hell to people who think. It's just insecure people trolling. Sad how they manage to get attention for this blatant bullsh*t.
