    Why do people get so bent out of shape over the whole blackface thing? Never could understand it. At the link there's the amateur home video of it, doesn't look that bad really. It's not like he Ted Dansoned it, he was just standing next to the guy.

    The other side of the same coin.

    Because Tom Hanks is a huge name who supports Obama. ANY reason (even feigned outrage) to get him apart from Obama will be taken.

    The same reason people are offended by a word, because of its history.

    I give Tom a pass because he wasn't the idiot in blackface and wasn't in on it. But by the same token (har-dee-harrr), if that happened to a Republican, he'd be hounded by the left until he was ruined.

    He needs to apologize more for contributing to Dexter Season 6.

    The last few seconds of that was pretty good. The rest was filler.

    There are times when you laugh so hard you snort, this was one of those times.

    Because they want power over their betters, and in a PC culture outrage is a tool to get it.

    Like every other "conservative outrage" story, no real people give a shit. Must suck to have nothing better to do than post these bullshit stories.
