#1 I'm unclear: Is the racism here from dressing like a black person or dressing like a particular sort of black person? What if they dressed like Clarence Thomas who, I presume, wears a suit and tie to work instead of some Compton rapper?

#2 I'm sure it's OK as long as they don't appear in blackface. Maybe confer with the VA. gov. Northrup for proper attire.

#3 dressing like a particular sort of black person

Embrace theoretical rigor!
The Negro who passes as whigger,
Co-opting the clothes
Of the culture he loathes,
Slides his universe sideways. "Muh trigga!"

Pretty spooky there, Pic-a-Nic! Sweat a gawd, I didn't touch it.

#4 So they are basically reaching that only black people, and all blacks, dress that way.

No racism there....

#6 America, please, some compassion
For kids that your culture is trashin',
And bet your sweet bippy
That thug garb, like hippie,
Is simply a statement of fashion!

#7 Looks like they really don't like the cultural appropriation.
