Black Face Lives and Black Women are the Targets
Yeah, that’s Charles Knipp, a big white man in black face playing “Ms. Shirley Q. Liquor,” a character that he created that’s a Black woman with 19 fatherless kids and poor grammar that he uses as a tool to mock Black culture and Black people. Supposedly, this man does drag shows all around the country and the gay community supports and loves him!(Note the 3 hosts from Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” hamming it up with him in the photo above).
Now, let’s be clear…I’m totally pro First Amendment and believe that he should be able to say and do what he wants…but what I do believe is that it’s also our right to not provide him with a forum and audience. I would normally not have posted this, but I thought my sisters needed to know that we were being ripped, and hopefully, if you hear that he’s coming to your town, you will make some noise about it. Be careful, however, because Black Superwoman Jasmyne Cannick spoke out about it and even got some of his shows cancelled in 2007, and she has been receiving death threats! [The Daily Voice]
