Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was quoted about the use of blackface to dehumanize and devalue black people. “Are white people who want to put on blackface going to listen to black people who are injured by their expressive conduct?” Armour said. “Are they going to take into consideration people who say, ‘Those images or those words or those costumes wound me, and even if you mean something innocuous by it, it still hurts me and it still offends me. And is that something you’re going to care about?’”
