Cheerleader In Blackface Causes Texas-Sized Ruckus
A costume donned by a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys has people questioning what attire is appropriate to wear in jest and what should never be touched.
Whitney Isleib is learning that lesson the hard way after she decided that it was an acceptable idea to don the make-up substance known as “black face,” often worn in mockery of Black Americans and a symbol of great pain and discontent within the Black community, in a dimwitted attempt to pay back-handed homage to Lil’ Wayne.
Born with long blond hair, Isleib fashioned a grill out of aluminum, attached braids to her trucker hat, and smeared black make-up all over herself; the final addition completed her 21st century Step N’ Fetchit transformation.
A spokesman for the Cowboys has acknowledged knowing of the situation and has revealed that the franchise will be launching an internal investigation into the matter.
