Saw this comment over at Zero Hedge this afternoon and thought it was both funny and possibly true :)

"There are more black fathers with a wife and kids living together in TV commercials than exist in America." adr

David Byrne Apologizes for Wearing Blackface in Stop Making Sense Promo Video



"I acknowledge it was a major mistake in judgement that showed a lack of real understanding."



While making a couple wacky memes remixing AA and Talking Heads, I came across this story from last year. Itโ€™s not a big surprise, just another example of faggy entertainers groveling to the dark gods...
Ex-Talking Heads singer David Byrne has apologized for wearing Blackface in a promo video for the bandโ€™s 1984 film Stop Making Sense.


I liked it, itโ€™s nice to see him riffing, being less pretentious or at least sarcastically goofing about the concept of being less pretentious... I can never tell with this guy.
In a series of tweets, Byrne said that a journalist recently pointed out his wearing of Blackface as he portrayed several characters in the promo video. He said heโ€™d forgotten about the video until it was brought to his attention.


He honestly might have to apologize some day for this weird fat shaming quote as well... not even kidding.
โ€œTo watch myself in the various characters, including Black- and brownface, I acknowledge it was a major mistake in judgement that showed a lack of real understanding. Itโ€™s like looking in a mirror and seeing someone elseโ€”youโ€™re not, or were not, the person you thought you were,โ€ Byrne said.

He pointed out in another tweet that at the end of his American Utopia show he says that he needs to change as well. A filmed version of that show is heading to HBO Max in October and is directed by Spike Lee. You can see the teaser trailer for it here. On Feb. 29 of this year, Byrne also appeared on Saturday Night Live for the first time in over 30 years to promote the Broadway performance.
Aha! Now I see why he had to prostrate himself on the altar of woke public opinion (besides being an insufferable shitlib his whole damn career), he had gigs on the books and needed to kneel before the new masters, to beg their permission to sing.
You can see Byrneโ€™s tweets below.

Iโ€™d just about forgotten about this skit and Iโ€™m grateful that it has been brought to my attention.

We have huge blind spots about ourselves- well, I certainly do. Iโ€™d like to think I am beyond making mistakes like this, but clearly at the time I was not. Like I say at the end of our Broadway show American Utopia "I need to change too"..and I believe I have changed since then.

One hopes that folks have the grace and understanding to allow that someone like me, anyone really, can grow and change, and that the past can be examined with honesty and accountability.

I haven't paid any attention to that "non-fungible token" thing, but I was just thinking about that one nigger that sold n-word passes to his friends, and it occurred to me that it might be possible to take the idea to the next level.

I always have seen him as lazy.

Yes, I do like that song. Why? Because here he at least is honest and describes himself. I hate nothing more than dishonesty.
Iโ€™m a big Talking Heads fan, but havenโ€™t really sought out any of his solo stuff. Hadnโ€™t heard that one before, but I liked it.

I have gone through phases trying to interpret his lyrics or the themes behind his music, but I ultimately see a lot of it as a specific brand of sardonic sarcasm or... something. Not exactly sarcasm or dishonesty, but a sort of stuffy aloof elitism. Idk.

Someone on our side of things, canโ€™t remember who, did a review of the True Stories movie a couple/few years ago and talked about oscillating between thinking Byrne was being truly nostalgic for the way White America used to be and thinking he was being demeaning towards it.

I think the song โ€˜(Nothing But) Flowersโ€™ I mentioned somewhere else on the forum recently really embodies this conflict between his themes. I fell in love with that song in my teens when I used to day dream exclusively about living in the crumbled ruins of society that nature has grown back over... but the beautiful irony of him steadily admitting that he misses it all wasnโ€™t lost on me.

I think his music is great, but the behind the scenes stories Iโ€™ve heard about him have only cemented my current impression of him as being some kind of jerk. Artists are often jerks though, so I get it, but Iโ€™m very wary of ever believing heโ€™s being honest.

Itโ€™s too tricky a thing to nail down, so nowadays I just concede that I might be missing the joke and just fill in the gaps with my own meanings.

One of the only things that really sours my ability to separate the artist from the art is when they display obvious or explicitly anti-White themes in their art or quotes from interviews. He hasnโ€™t quite crossed that threshold to an intense enough degree by my measurement, so Iโ€™ll continue bopping around to Remain In Light until my feet hurt. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Another small white pill for the day, being a lesson on hiding your power level. a quote from my six year old daughter:
โ€œI donโ€™t say jew at school because i donโ€™t want to get in troubleโ€
Thereโ€™s more to it than that, but that was the take away.
