Hey, it’s funny and acceptable if white Hollywood liberals participate in it:

Time to play “imagine if a Republican did this”:

Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Hollywood screen legend Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey at a 2004 fundraising auction, playfully interacting with a white man dressed as an African native, complete with blackface makeup and a giant Afro wig.

Hanks most recently provided the narration for ”The Road We’ve Traveled,” a 17-minute-long campaign video meant to help President Barack Obama win re-election in November.

The 2004 auction’s routine included a white man in blackface, identified in the footage as investment banker James Montgomery, CEO of the Santa Monica, Calif., firm Montgomery & Co. In addition to blackface makeup and the wig, Montgomery wore a leopard-print toga and an arm band made to look like it consisted of animal teeth.

During a lull in the auction, Frey refers to Montgomery and comments, “See how boring money management and stock investment is, people? It’s not nearly as much fun as, like, professional basketball.”

In response to the video, Congress of Racial Equality national spokesperson Niger Innis has called on President Obama to remove Hanks’ narration from his campaign film. Innis called the incident “an orchestrated, heinous, and racist ‘Stepin Fetchit’ routine that Mr. Hanks was a part of.”

The final item auctioned in the 2004 fundraiser depicted in the video was a large stuffed “trophy gorilla” that came with what Hanks described as a “dowry”: 5,000 shares of pre-IPO stock in Corus Pharmaceuticals, a company whose limited partners included Montgomery’s family trust.

The video shows Montgomery in blackface, holding the stuffed animal and standing with Hanks, while Frey is heard saying into his microphone: “This is as close to diversity as we’ll get at St. Matthew’s.”

Those guys should team up with Ted Danson and take the show on the road where they could help mobilize Obama voters to do battle against those racist Republicans.

If these twits were Romney supporters you’d be looking at the lead story on all the nightly newscasts:

    I can`t help believing the Rs would have an honest to goodness black man in the roll and instead of saying, 'This is as close to diversity as we`ll get ….", the real black guy would say, "See how diverse we really are ? We don`t have to pretend !"

    In `04, I don`t remember hearing so many false charges of racism; I remember "Bush lied and people died" and "Hypocrite" ! Racism and hypocrisy are charges that fit the left !

    Done my share of jumping thru hoops to hype a few IPO's in my day. Can't say as I ever stooped to doing blackface while humiliating myself and others..? Great job for a great cause Tom!

    On a similar Hollyweird note, it's gone almost entirely unnoticed but George Clooney's "The Descendants" is inadvertantly a case study in dissecting the Liberal mindset.

    While his character is described by critics as "indifferent", Matt King is the -only- adult in the entire script. Everyone from his thrillseeking, devil may care, affair having wife to his incredibly selfish daughters whom even in time of their mother's passing STILL see the world as it revolves around 'them'. To countless fellow descendants that continue to simply allow him to work a real estate deal that could make them all billionaires at a time when he should be caring for his wife!

    In the Liberal mindset, anyone living within their means, preferring a quiet, private orderly life over instant gratification is "indifferent". This is a must see and we should be making MORE of this!

    Nobody really cares except the usual group or miserable, angry, self-haters. Remember a movie called “White Chicks?” No big deal!

    Even if it were possible to send them all (Euro, African or Asian) back to their roots, they would still be miserable, angry, haters. It’s what they are on the inside that makes life a pain for others.

    The problem for them is that there is only One who can change what’s wrong on the inside but they don’t want to let go so they keep pushing Him farther and farther away from our society.

    Clu,

    Or perhaps more to the point, every last Conservative could keel over and croak simultaneously and there would still be room in their hearts for hate. We've effectively SEEN that as Prog's have claimed for years it's the WWII Generation that's e'fing everything up!

    Well, they're all but gone yet their self/conserv. hating goes on unabated. I truly feel the Prog Movement that fed 'off' itself for years is now feeding ON itself. They realize it but there doesn't appear anything they can do about it?

    Like the flesh eating bacteria or maybe leprosy, the bird flu, legionnaire’s disease, o.k., o.k. I’m o.k.

    Prog's would be just fine with an incident like "The Core" where an electromagnetic shift in our poles left every Conservative w/ a pacemaker face down in the street.

    As long as no endangered species were harmed in the process? They'll go Saddam and send a BILL to the family for disposal of your corpse.
