Do not ask

for whom the “woke” bell tolls. It tolls for thee.

Or maybe for Hugh Laurie:



I find it very curious that it is SO hard to find a photo of Hugh Laurie in blackface on the Internet. It’s almost as if it has been scrubbed. Yet I have the DVDs showing it…

Laurie was in blackface for the better part of an episode, yet it is very hard to find. DuckDuckDo has virtually nothing. Google is a little better. How interesting!

Now let me be clear: I find nothing wrong with this. It was a period piece, and it was in no way disparaging of black people. So let’s not get our knickers all in a twist, here. We need to grow up!

On the other hand, what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and I didn’t make the rules…
