Mary Poppins is branded racist by US academic over famous rooftop scene because when she gets covered in soot she 'gamely powders her nose and cheeks and gets even blacker'

    US Professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticised the classic Mary Poppins film
    The academic criticises the film in an article published in the New York Times
    In one scene Mary Poppins's face is covered with soot after going up a chimney
    Professor Pollack-Pelzner writes: 'Her face gets covered with soot, but instead of wiping it off, she gamely powders her nose and cheeks and gets even blacker'

In the very near future everything done/said by whites will be considered racist until after passing numerous tests to detect possible nasty, racist acts/words.
Nevertheless, all whites will still be considered racists or possible racists and subject to constant scrutiny in case they revert back to their KKK hood-wearing days.  All whites will be judged to have been Klan members even if they can prove they weren't. Because they can't prove they weren't.
 Of course, non-whites acts/words will be excused because as we all know non-whites cannot be racists i.e. haters.   Because you have to have power to be a racist.
And you know multi billionaire Oprah Winfrey has no power while some white hillbilly struggling to feed his family in the Appalachians has lots of power.    :whistle:

Why doesn't he get a black boyfriend and leave the rest of us alone?  Oh that's right ... he is just scamming for grant money, like his colleagues in the science dept.

I think it's racist that a white guy is talking about racism.

In the very near future everything white people do or have done will be considered racist until proven otherwise. Even then they'll probably be racist. Get ready to try to prove a negative.
This is what our progressive overlords have in store for heretics to the progressive future.

Well thank goodness someone finally pointed this out.  Things like this are exactly what is going to save our society from the ever-tightening spiral downward into chaos.
