One of my followers asked me to post this on their behalf. A white girl in Australia’s “African” themed 21st birthday party, which she titled “This is Africa…. my 21st :)”

Attendees were all asked to wear “African themed” clothing to depict the continent and this is what resulted… blackface, elephant and gorilla costumes, warpaint, native American headdresses (?!) and more…. I’m at a loss for words.

And yes, this is from 2013. 

The girl posted the pictures proudly and flatly refused to take them down when confronted by another individual about how they were racist apparently. Pictures were reported to facebook weeks ago and they still have not been taken down. 

Wow.

In case you ever wanted to know how white folks saw us black Africans… here you go. 

EDIT: The girl who hosted the party posted a response to this: here

    Fucking disgusting. How can any person, white or black, defend the KKK costume as “fun” when it has a) nothing to do...
