So, a friend was telling me that his brother is planning on being Samuel Jackson, from the Chappelle Show for Halloween. For those of you who don't know, the sketch pokes fun at the Samuel Adams beer logo and uses the actor Samuel L. Jackson. This guy is white, and I see no problem with him being this character so long as he doesn't paint his skin to look black. That just feels too reminiscent of black face and I think he will offend a lot of people. My friends last night seemed to see no problem with it, and seemed to feel it didn't matter if he did offend anyone. Then again, my friends are both white, so I can see why they wouldn't take offense ot it. I just wanted to get some other opinions on this matter. Would that offend anyone? What do you think?
