WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON IN THE LONDON UNDERGROUND?!

club penguin became real

Racism, that’s what’s going on… look at all that blackface

Apparently making sure your face is the same colour as a penguin outfit is now the same as black yourself up and saying “mammy!”

Painting your face black ignores the history behind blackface. Its not like no one wouldn’t know they we’re penguins without it.
Apparently, if you’re not black you think you have a say in what is and what isn’t Blackface

No.  

Painting your face black then pretending to be Black ignores the history of blackface.  There’s a world of difference between colouring your face the same as the rest of a costume and being a racist fuck.  
If they had painted on exaggerated lips of some such thing then yes, it would be deplorable, but they didn’t.  

I mean for fuck’s sake, how the fuck do you manage to associate racism with a bunch of grown men dressed as fucking peguins?

Also, here’s the definition from Merriam-Webster, it’s specifically for someone pretending to be Black.
Definition of BLACKFACE

:  makeup applied to a performer playing a black person especially in a minstrel show; also :  a performer wearing such makeup
