F-U list? Next time I'm bored maybe I'll write one. xD

It'd be a blank list, though. There goes another stupid idea. *sigh*

*sigh* I know this is more of a cultural difference.
I guess.
Is the Turkish journalist that clueless about how blackface may be perceived by an American audience.

By the way "black face" in "The one who ask has one black face, the one who refuses has two black face" refers to "shame". Not the actual blackness of the skin.

--TRANSLATION---
I cannot translate the whole thing, it is too long. But I will explain why the black face. There is a very famous saying in Turkish: "The one who ask has one black face, the one who refuses has two black face" meaning that Don't be afraid to ask for things. He is trying to refer to that saying and asks Obama to end terror. He mentions many times He is not racist. Believe me Turkish people are not racist against Black people at all.

This effects me as Im a white guy from ireland and was going to paint my face black to dress up as "JD quench" from the sprite ads over here for a costume party I have next weekend.

Do people really think I would cause anyone to think it was anything other then for comedic purposes!!!

link for anyone that doesn't know JD quench:

Personally I think that anyone who finds this offensive is taking it was too seriously and is the root cause of black/white divides.

"Anwar, I speak as a Black American and I'm telling you IT'S STUPID. So, I think my opinion should pretty much act as the be all in the equation since it is my people being the target. END OF STORY".

Your argument is slowly becoming persuasive but I am still struggling with the subtler nuances of the concept.

je_scream, I don't really care to get into the issue because, well, I don't really care.
But being black and a quarter white doesn't give you reign to just label things as offensive. Just like some other black guy walking around giving white people "permission" to say the n word doesn't really work either.

Anyone who says that this is not racist or offensive because of cultural differences is an idiot. This man has reduced Obama to nothing but his race and colour, like nothing else about him matters. The fact that the Turkish don't "White up" when they host a white politician tells you that black has some other meaning for them. You'd be right to be offended if you were American, especially as the USA is actually making an effort to make contact with a middle-eastern country that does not result in piles of rubble and flag burning. Still, coming from a country who's national sport is rubbing each other in olive oil and then wrestling each other in tight leather shorts.......

injek, you know how ignorant you sound right? Of course this is offensive, for one this is how they portray one of the most important men in the world, I think the president deserves 10 times more respect, and I don't even like Obama but come on! And of course you equate this with a Dave Chappelle skit...wtf? *face palm* And whoever said Dave Chappelle's 'white face' character wasn't offensive? Cause I feel it was and I'm a quater white...so now what's your excuse, Braniac? so shush.

i cant see this being offensive to any race...my opinion. honestly,dave chappelle did his one character,which involved him painting his face white to portray a news anchor,and it was fine. no problem with that right?no of drating course not.

The fact that Americans find this offensive, is why people don't like Americans.

I think I'm going to shut up now, as Baalthazaq has demonstrated, Americans don really understand that other cultures exist outside of theirs.

"This must be Turkey's version of Fox news."
Hahaha! Good one. And sadly true too, unless it was some sort of April Fool's joke.

Ok, anyone that thinks there's nothing wrong with this needs a smack to the face. I mean really, where do we draw the line? This isn't funny, it's just stupid and offensive.
