    Okay, what? No! This is ridiculous!

    She`s not portraying a stereotype of a race and to suggest she is should hint to point the finger right back at yourself.

    She is dressed up as a /person/ not a /race/. When you hold a picture of her next to one of Lil Wayne the PERSON she looks identical. Is it sexist for a guy to dress up as Paris Hilton? Gawdam, stop taking all the fun out of everything.

    She was supposed to be L`il Wayne, so no harm.

    If it had been some sort of stereotypical blackface minstrel getup, then it could be called into question.

    Being in the public eye as a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, she probably should have used better judgment, but I certainly don`t believe that she was intending to make any kind of racist statement.

    I DO believe that she was trying to be funny. Too bad the media has to jump on things like this, and try to fan the flames of racism where there really aren`t any.

Simply, if you are white and calling racism, you are ignorant. If you are BLACK and calling racism, take a look in the mirror and ask yourself how many times YOU have been a racist in your actions....i mean, REALLY!!!

Seems anything can be racist today.

    Its all just a over-reaction, alot of people are really sensitive when it comes to racism and like to make something out of nothing. She was just impersonating celebrity for Halloween, like many people do on that holiday. Say if she just meant to be a stereotype of another race then I would agree that it could be racist, but that is not the case. Plus, like one woman said on the video, if the situation would have been reversed, no one would have said a thing.

    Great costume idea. I suggest wearing a Pope`s hat as well.

    Is there so little anti-"black" racism in the USA that people are so desperate to find some that they seize so eagerly on this?

    It`s someone dressing up as someone famous for a party. If anything, it indicates a lack of racism on her part because she didn`t restrict her choice to people of her own "race".

    Definition of racism:"The use of race or skin color as a means for insult, discrimination, or other injustices; hatred or intolerance of another race or other races."

    Unless she is trying to make an insulting statement with her costume, I see nothing wrong with it.

    Anyone who accuses another of racism is the racist a very large portion of the time.

    Think hard about it; a non-racist person will go about their day doing or saying things with no bias. The racist ones point out a joke or "flaw" and accuse them of racism, when in fact, the non-racist wasnt paying attention to how it could be racist because they simply dont think that way. It is the racist individual who has told them that the others actions are racist because they think about racism constantly.

    This is a perfect scenario for "pot calling the kettle black", am i right?

    Eeh. It wasn`t a great costume. And it was Halloween. Probably not the best PR move, but I wouldn`t say it was racist.

    This reminds me of the debate at my college a couple of years ago. People wanted to "Black Out" the stadium for football games, which meant black clothes, black wigs, and black face paint (our school colors are orange and black)

    No one cared when people painted their faces orange. But the second they bought black face paint, poo hit the fan. All they wanted to do was support the school`s team, and instead they were called racist.

    Is she dressed like that then went, "ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE LIKE THIS" and SHOT everyone, well that would be racist...

    but dressing up as a celebrity? No.

    It`s white people calling the race card ON BEHALF of black people. THAT`S what I hate.

    Anyone who accuses another of racism is the racist a very large portion of the time.

    Think hard about it; a non-racist person will go about their day doing or saying things with no bias. The racist ones point out a joke or "flaw" and accuse them of racism, when in fact, the non-racist wasnt paying attention to how it could be racist because they simply dont think that way. It is the racist individual who has told them that the others actions are racist because they think about racism constantly.

    This is a perfect scenario for "pot calling the kettle black", am i right?

    First off, lil wayne is a bad excuss for a rapper and an embarrassment to society

    secondly, of course black people will get offended by anything a white person does, they are naturally racists, and as mivchelle said before, white chicks was a movie about the opposite, 2 black guys dressed up as white girls, you dont see a kkk riot breaking out do you? those 2 guys have a lot more publicity then one cheerleader, so i dont wanna hear people bitching about little kids looking up to a cheerleader when 2 hollywood actors did it

    finally, its none of their damn business what anyone dresses up as, Halloween is about dressing up as something as your not, usually scary... and well, lil wayne is ugly as hell, so thats scary enough for me, would black people seriously get off the racist wagon and join the rest of society as civilized people? probably not, if they dont it just proves how stupid they are, i mean they were slaves for many, many years werent they? oh yea, they always bring that up

How about they focus on actually raising their kids instead of letting the media do it for them? The woman was wearing a freaking Halloween costume. Get over it.

    Okay, why is everyone making such a big deal out of the fact that she is a Dallas cheerleader?

    "If she wasn`t a Dallas cheerleader, it wouldn`t really matter."

    Really now? I don`t care how hot or how talented of a cheerleader she may be (nor do I care how much she gets paid), she`s still a chearleader.

    I`f you`re going to impersonate someone, you should take their entire appearance into account if you want it to be a good costume. Honestly, even though I can`t stand Lil Wayne, she had a pretty well put together costume, make-up wise.

    It`s not racism. This is more about ignorant people trying to call themselves politically correct by walking on eggshells. it`s ridiculous.

    However, even though I personally don`t think it`s a big deal, some people do. And it doesn`t matter how damn stupid they are; these people are the ones buying your football game tickets. She should have taken the risk into account before choosing a possibly controversial costume.

    listen, if a black person put on white makeup and pretended to be , I`d applaud them, it takes a lot of work to do full body makeup.

    also, I like how the news darked the photo when they cropped it to exaggerate how dark she was...

    It bugs me that people have to make a big deal of this... She went as a celebrity and wore makeup. I think the fact that people are bringing this up as a racist act actually furthers the gap between races. It`s saying "You need to stick these standards and I need to to stick to my standards because you are that color and I am this color". What about "You are this color and I am that color because we`re both human and humans vary"?

    The fact that one group of people is allowed to do something while another isn`t simply because of race is discriminatory regardless. It doesn`t matter what side you`re on.

    There really is no need for a general "race issue" ... It`s people perpetuating that we need to tip toe around others. Of course that could just be my extreme opinion and I`m just crazy...

    And for god`s sake why do we have to take life so seriously? >.<; It`s an effin` costume.

You people do know that they Want us to be divided, right? I mean, they profit from convincing humanity that our skin color makes us completely different people. That is why pointless bullsh*it like this gets broadcast to the country. Stop allowing crap like this to poison your minds, people.

    I`ve mentioned this before in response to another post, but Hey Hey It`s Saturday (an Aussie variety show) got in a world of crap, cos some guys, not employed by the show, just guys from the street, did Jackson 5 impersonation in black-face.

    Harry Connick Jnr. was a guest judge, and was personally offended by the sketch, despite the fact that he did the same sketch 10 - 20 years ago. What gives? Pull your friggin head in, people should be allowed to take the piss out of anyone they want, surely that comes under freedom of speech?

    I thought MLK dreamed of a day when black children and white children could play together without concern for the color of their skin. Yet here we are, supposedly after the civil rights movement was a success, and people are saying: Well this is a black thing so only black people can do it and this is a white thing so only white people can do it. This girl was not engendering a racial stereotype, she was mimicking a real person.

    I could see maybe if she was just dressing up in black face people getting a little upset... trying to push s stereotype. Even then, she has a right to free speech, so the only issue would be hurting her teams image. That being said, I don`t think it`s a big deal at all since she is trying to impersonate and actual person.

    Ok, here it is:
    Lil` Wayne is black, whether you like it or not, and to accurately dress up as Lil` Wayne, it`s important to have black skin. If you`re not black (and in this case, the woman dressing up is NOT) than part of your Lil` Wayne costume should be to paint your skin to look black. It`s FINE! Trying to separate and restrain white people from dressing as black people for halloween (and visa versa) only creates more of a gap between the races, thus detracting from any progress in the race resolution in America.

    Oh, and to clear up the historical significance of Blackface:
    White actors on stage (as well as in early cinema) wore blackface NOT to appear African American, but to accentuate the features of their face and body. They would leave the lips, bottom of the nose, and eye-ares free of black paint so that patrons sitting far from the stage (or screen) could easily see their facial expressions.

    Isn`t it stupid to say this is racist?

    First of all, how is dressing up as a black person racist?
    Second, if a black person dressed up as a white person, is it racist?
    Third, if saying a white person should not dress as a black person and vice-versa, THAT is being far more "racist" than dressing as the other ethnicity.

    Definition of racism:
    hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    How is dressing as another race racism then? *roll eyes*

    isn`t it racist in itself to say that it`s "wrong" someone of one ethnicity to dress up as one of another?

    so it would have been better if she went as a slut? becuase that is what most girls dress up as for halloween. i think that it was a very creative costume and she wasn`t doing it for any "racist" purpose. like people need to calm the drat down on poo like this.

    i think the news is grasping. get a drating life, really. And chicks who dress in next to nothing as role models? Might as well be idolizing strippers...

    White people are always the ones "offended" by these types of things. I think it`s an original costume.
